  1. Cvr

    Provide (do not require) CAC access, without the dual authentication requirements. A significantly large portion of the user base, work in secure environments, without LAN line or Cell phone access. Some of us are grown up and can use a CAC on personal computers. Plus scrap the 18 hour session time out. It is just a head ache that actually reduces security because people are using the alternative number sign in, and some rando is hitting the pound sign, proving nothing.

  2. Pin an App for Easy Access - GCC

    Being in the GCC for several years now, I understand that there are delays for features and apps coming to the Government Community Cloud. One feature that has been available for more than 6 Months on the Commercial Side is the ability to for users to Pin Apps (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/pin-an-app-for-easy-access-3045fd44-6604-4ba7-8ecc-1c0d525e89ec). It would nice to be able to have that feature in the GCC. I have the option turned on within the Teams Admin options, yet am still unable to pin any Apps (besides the ones I want to do Org-Wide).

  5. Allow users to configure their Team to Land on the "Files" tab instead of "Posts."

    When you select a Team, it takes you to the “Posts” page. This is usually an empty page and then a user needs to select "Files" to get to where they really want to go. I would like the ability to configure preferences to land instead on "Files"?

  6. Automatic sign in on phones

    It is very annoying having to always re-sign into my account every time I open the app on my phone. Make it so I can just click on the app and open it, instead of having to type my password, then call to verify and press the # sign. This is very inefficient and inconvenient.

  7. Shrink/condense chat & teams window size

    The teams window takes up a lot of screen real-estate and I'm finding myself frequently needing to close it because its in the way of other work. For example, the chat window (when popped out) at its smallest size is still twice the size of a skype chat. Can you provide an option for a more condensed view. When within the Teams app, you lose the contact list if you try to shrink the window which isn't helpful when multiple chats are occuring.

  8. CVR

    UI needs an overhaul. Wasting bottom screen space with 5 tabs, 3 of which are what we use, is kind of pointless when slack and discord have more proven, user friendly UI. Nix the tabs, especially the cvr hub and move to a UI with channels and such on the left of the screen with chat centered/right. This is the reason everyone hates using teams, no reason we can’t make it better.

  9. Warning Prompt before closing Microsoft TEAMS.

    Please enable a warning prompt before closing Microsoft TEAMS. I keep clicking on the 'x' in the upper, right corner to close a window thinking that it will close the file or page I'm currently looking at within Microsoft TEAMS. It is actually the close application button and immediately closes Microsoft TEAMS entirely! There is no warning prompt that comes up that asks 'Do you want to exit the program?'. I have to keep logging in and logging in and logging in, because I am naturally attuned to closing a page within the application using the 'x'. Please enable a…

    Teams mobile app needs to allow you to seamlessly switch between chat view and most recently viewed Team conversation as in the desktop app.

    It's an unnecessary annoyance to have to select the team conversation you want again every time you switch from Chat back to Teams.

    Applies to Android Teams app.

    Chat view needs a way to view and select your contacts.

  13. Multiple tabs open at once

    Currently switching between multiple chats, calendar, teams & teams files, but can only view 1 at a time & have to find other files each time. Would be ideal to have many tabs open at once to easy compare files, go back to frequently used pages, etc.

    Hi.

    The attached image is too small when forwarding a team post to Outlook.
    I would like to request an improvement so that I can see the attached image bigger.

  17. The Army CVR Login Process Has An Annoyance

    The policy for our cloud has been changed so that the user is logged out after 18 hours. This effectively means that every single day a user has to log in and they are logged out probably while they are sleeping getting ready for the next day. The 6 hours of inactivity is long enough for the CSRF tokens to expire, and I repeatedly forget that when I'm prompted to log back in at the start of my day, I'm going to type my secure 16+ character password and then have to type it again because "sorry, your session has…

  18. GDPR Regulations and Right to Be Forgotten Correct Implementation

    Users cannot delete call history.
    If a Right to be forgotten was enforced we would be unable to wipe the User from our call log, there by breaching GDPR.

    This needs to be corrected.

  19. DOT

    Please make an option to only show contacts that are online and with out all the chat history showing. Often I just want to look to see if an individual is online I don't need to fill my screen with all the other items. Really just give us an option similar to the skype window. It was small and only showed contacts. If we need to use more options in teams we can expand it.

  20. Hello! We use

    Love the pop-out windows options!

    But possible to consider making the TEAMS pop-out windows dimensions more adjustable/resizeable - or perhaps introduce a more compact view?

    With multiple chats sometimes running, each pop-out window takes a substantial real estate on the screen (which can't be sized to small view) and it would be fantastic to be able to size it smaller or some other smart way other than stacking windows on top of other windows.

    Thanks!
