  1. Cannot access files after connecting VPN

    we configured that users are able to access the teams files only in company network. that means only company public ip address can do that. according to this, user out of office should dial VPN using company ip in advance and then open the files. but we found that is not work. user must use vpn and re-login Teams, seems Teams cannot identify the changes of network. this is a huge bug for now. hope MS can solve it asap.

  3. Add Metatags at the Team level

    Need to be able to metatag at the Team, Channel, Folder and Doc levels, so metatags are inherited at the highest level.

  4. Assign or categorise multiple tasks in one action

    Make it easy to mass assign (or label) tasks in a single action. If I have 100 tasks and all need to be assigned to one person who will then re-distribute them, and 50 should be under a single label such as 'Red' or 'Sprint 1' and the other 50 as another e.g. 'Amber' or 'Sprint 2', currently all of them need to be indivually updated manually.

  5. Documentation display bug when a dark theme is active

    When one enables either the Dark or High Contrast theme, then browses to:
    Ellipsis --> T-Bot --> Help tab --> Messaging --> Explore the Activity Feed --> Activity Feed Symbols

    The sample icons are barely visible against the dark background. I suspect these icons in the documentation aren't themed properly. They are visible with the white background of the Default theme. Teams shows themed versions of these icons when these situations arise during use.

  7. Notification

    Mobile notifications are completely broken for a very long time. I have been with two different companies but at both places we had the exact same problem. My new team adapted the Teams for a few weeks but we decided to switch to Slack solely because of this issue. Please know that this is actually costing you real customers.

  8. Provide better performance and support for larger groups

    When using the Teams desktop app with a large group of people (90) the majority experience terrible lag when switching between private chats or official channels. This makes the app unusable and people are forced to rely on the web version.

  9. Speed impact on Android Unacceptable

    Unfortunately any time I find my phone seems sluggish it is always because Teams is running in the background. I don't have this problem with the Skype client. It makes the client useless.

  12. Quick ideas / Requests

    a) Esc key should drop out of full screen display (Mac version)
    b) Ability to reduce font sizes and increase content displayed in windows - particularly chat content
    c) Reduce border padding around posts - again support more useful content visible in the display(s)

  13. Add external user to a team over Azure AD an not through guest invitation

    Currently you have to activate the guest access option to add a guest user that has been created on Azure AD. It would very helpful to have this option without the guest access activated to avoid that every user could invite anyone to a team.

  14. Fix the basics first

    There are a lot of basic bugs like file permissions. I have had well over a dozen times where I download a PowerPoint, edit it, and when I try to upload&replace I am not allowed to because my own user has the file locked. I'm sure it's likely something to do with how Chrome caches the file, but it is super frustrating. I don't want to have to keep renaming files with extra suffixes like _new_final_2.

    I don't need more chat systems, we already have slack, zoom, Lync/Skype, email and discord. Chat isn't compelling. First get the basics working then…

  15. Allow users to choose their "handles"

    It would make sense that you can choose how you name appears in the instance when you are mentioned.

    Although you can remove the name and keep only the surname, it should be possible for someone to choose how their name appear in the tool.

    ex: Jonathan Mcakenburry --> @Jonathan

    Thank you!
    C

  19. Allow use of Teams links outside of Teams

    In an Outlook email to a colleague, I tried to link a post I posted on Teams that this colleague did not see, however the link would not work. We are not fully using Teams for internal emails in our company yet and that will change at some point, therefore it would be useful if it was possible to reference a Teams' post outside of Teams which could then prompt the receiver of the link to click on it and log onto Teams to see it. Bad habits are hard to change...
