  1. More compact code snippets

    When you have a very small snippet (one or two lines), the code snippet unnecessarily takes up a lot of extra space. It would be better if it scaled better with the content. Even for long snippets it uses up a bit more space than I would like but that is of lesser importance.

  2. Compact list as default view

    What we really need in Teams is to get an option to have compact view as the main view for that particular page and in ”Files”. It improves readability, is user-friendly and speeds up work. Many would use Teams more in their company and in our company if this feature would exists.

  3. Planner board compact view

    The planner boards are way to space consuming, which results in too much scrolling and limits good task oversight. Please add a compact view option, that reduces card size, as well as card spacing.

  4. Requesting a compact view for chats/messaging

    Implementing a compact view for messaging. Currently, the conversation takes up over half of the screen. For privacy purposes and for other reasons, someone may want to minimize just one conversation instead of minimizing the whole application, etc.

  5. Compact theme for mobile app

    Screen space is scarce on mobiles, it would be nice to be able to have a more dense layout as an option, especially in Chats/Conversations. I'm thinking of something in the style of IRC chats.
    I would also advocate for a more mindful usage of space in landscape mode, possibly hiding the top and bottom bars to give more space to content when typing or reading.

  6. Please provide more compact UI

    In a meeting I don't need to always see everyone's full name. It makes the icon really wide and usually I know who everyone is. Teams should just display the small round icon and display the name if I hover over it.

    I have to display the "People" sidebar during meetings in order to see my own mic Mute status, since Teams doesn't otherwise show this info, and it takes up 1/4 of the screen. When someone is screen sharing the huge sidebar shrinks everything down and makes it harder to read. If you could just show the icons instead…

  7. Compact mode

    I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

  9. Ability to size the calendar page or make a compact view.

    Ability to size the calendar page or make a compact view..It could easily be compacted (lots of white space) to see a full working day in the week view.

  10. left justification of conversation feed

    The main conversations view has everything center justified. Makes it hard to read. Slack does a great job of making the core conversation UX compact, readable and scannable.

  11. Snappable notifications only compact mode

    CHECK ATTACHED IMAGE.

    Have an option to snap teams to one of the sides of the desktop and have the option for only notifications. There could be a sliding option as well the lets you see a bit more into the notification and then clicking on that opens up the entire app since now your intent is to view the entire thing rather that just the notification.

  12. Continue to work in another app while meeting video is moved to a corner compact window

    In skype we had this feature where meeting video could be make into a small compact window and user could continue to work on the computer.
    In teams we can't do this easily. Our doctors, during telemed session with patient like to continue to chart/document care notes while viewing the patient video session in a smaller corner window.
    We are having to do a workaround by sharing an empty notepad screen and minimizing it, then getting the actual window that we need to work on. This brings up a small compact window of patient's meeting video, however recently a toolbar…

  13. Makes Teams Chat more Like Skype

    Skype for Business has been honed in and perfected over the past decade. The Grouping - the ability to have it only in the side (not taking up your entire screen), the ability to automatically pop out conversations, the compact size, etc. Teams simply ignores all the virtures of Skype. Make the Chat feature in Teams completely pop-outed so the contact list looks just like Sype. Allow the list to be much more compact. Allow the conversations to automatically pop out. The idea behind teams is fine - the execution is very disappointing.

  15. UI is greedy over screen real estate which is cumbersome when switching to/from app.

    How do I make the UI more compact ? Need a UI config option like the tools its supposed to replace.

    While it may look sleek, that dies after about 500 milliseconds of use as one realizes it takes over a whole screen.

    this is supposed to be for contextual conversations, but the context is taken over by teams, which requires lots of Alt-tab flipping back and forth.

    Ideally the UI should autoscale on shrinking, or have an option for shrinking it down/compact mode.

  16. Chat on the same side, instead of Skype look

    And please remove the ballots and unecessary extra space around things. Compact layout is missing across this app.

  17. Too clunky of a UI

    It's too hard to move around in. I know its not too hard but it needs to be perfect like Slack. Compact, easy to read. Right now there are too many tabs and I sometimes get lost. I want zero chance of getting lost like Slack

  18. Compact - PINNED section

    I'd like to see the "pinned" chats have more of a compact user friendly layout and organization.
    Maybe also adding custom sections:

     Admin
    
    Facilities
    Heath Center
    IT

  19. Contacts - Compact Mode

    In addition to having a compact mode without photos similar to SFB can you also make a change such that my settings are remembers. Each time I open contacts ALL the users in my contacts groups are visible and I have to go to each group and click the <Up> arrow to condense them
