  1. Provide option to hide Control bar

    The control bar that pops up from below once any key is pressed keeps popping up and hiding away. It is quite annoying when trying to take screen snapshots. Please provide an option to hide it.

  3. Provide option to edit the Privacy type of channel from Standard to Private or vice versa;

    If we are allowed to edit the type of privacy, if by mistake privacy is wrongly selected we can edit else we have to delete the entire channel to re-create which is rework.

  4. Allow users of Teams to test their webcam and microphone before a meeting

    The desktop Teams app opens to a blank page for a new user. No opportunity to check a webcam has connected or a microphone is working with the app. Why not? Even a meeting like the "Skype call testing service" which I must have called at least 100 times in my career (so far).

  6. Add Important Notification to Webhook Connectors

    When writing a message in Microsoft Teams, a user can click the exclamation point icon in compose mode to mark the message as important (alternately done through control-shift-i). This flags the message as important in the team channel, as well as give the channel an alert icon of a red exclamation point. Looking through the actionable message card documentation, I cannot find any mention of this functionality. It would be nice to have to option to flag a webhook as an important message.

  8. DELETE

  9. Dark theme on IOS based on phone setting

    In IOS 13, the dark theme can be scheduled based on the time of day. The Teams App just uses one setting: it should use the IOS overall setting though (which for me is light theme during the day, dark theme through the evening/night).

  10. Channel descriptions should show inside the channel

    The channel descriptions are nowhere obvious, It would be nice if it shows in the channel and letting members know the purpose of the channel.

  13. Allow to upload a FOLDER instead file-by-file

    The bad things that I discovered is I cannot upload a folder (whole file) instead to the channel.

    I need to upload file-by-file and create a folder and move it to desire folder which take times.

  14. Indicate when a user is only logged in via the mobile app

    We use Teams at my work place (we have multiple offices and remote workers). And I'm also using the Android app, so my co-workers see me online even when I'm not at the office. It would be nice if the Desktop app would indicate that the user is currently only on mobile so my colleagues know when I'm not in the office.

  17. Allow lower contrast dark theme

    Having a dark theme is great but the high contrast between the background and the font makes it much harder on the eyes than it should be. Referencing apps like Discord or providing a slider for contrast or just a lower contrast darker theme would be really great and make it much easier to spend time in the app.

  19. Open shifts screen.

    We should be able to accept, decline, and comment on all shifts posted. Currently, we can only accept shifts.

  20. There should be a request and deny a shift and an overtime option

    When shifts are posted there should be more options than just requesting a shift.
