  1. Notifications

    When I open my app, or I get a notification, it does not go straight to the newest message. I have to scroll through all teams, groups and threads to hopefully find the newest message or post.

  2. Add a thumbs up emoji in a meeting along with raise hand icon

    sometimes presenters will ask if we can see something or if we like something in a meeting. Right now our only option is to raise our end. Would be nice if we could give a thumbs up to indicate they say something we like, or we agree with them, or give them an answer (if we are muted and/or don't have camera).

  3. 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. File Mgmt

    Like any other file system, I should be able to MOVE FOLDERS and not just files. Imagine having folders inside folders that are inside many other folders and each folder including important files. Now imagine the folder organization was made by a Private, someone who's terrible at organizing, or simply the organization needs to be optimized or updated. You have these multitudes of files and folders that you'll have to download onto your desktop just to move files around. Like come on.

  8. Fix Excel

    Excel on MSTeams should have all the same features as regular excel. Certain formatting and text orientations are not supported and jumbles text, making professionally made products on the desktop transferred to MSTeams, to look completely unprofessional. Imagine creating a splendid spreadsheet on the desktop, posting it to a meeting with a high ranking individual to view, and it looks like garbage. For example, I had created a maintenance man hour tracker with people's names shown at a diagonal angle. When I posted it to MSTeams for my supervisor to view, everyone's name were scrambled looking.

  10. Make pop-out chats smaller

    Pop out chats take up way too much screen real estate and cannot be zoomed like normal chats. This pretty much makes the pop-outs useless.

  11. Please add the feature to temporarily unmute yourself by holding down the space bar.

    It would be very convenient to have the option to temporarily unmute yourself during a meeting by holding down the space bar. In my experience, people struggle the most in meetings with unmuting themselves. I'm not sure why, but it happens!

  12. One large video teams meeting but allow for separate audio conversations that people can easily switch between

    We just had a large collaborative meeting but it's difficult to have side conversations. I want to keep the large group video feeds but allow to set up topic voice channels to allow for side discussions. Allowing the moderator or anyone to broadcast over all voice to bring everyone back to main channel. Or could be forced. It gets tiresome to always wait for one person to finish. Also add an invite so you can go to channel and offer invite to someone else.

  13. expand notifications

    Expand notifications to include updates to new list app. This list app has enormous potential for collaboration, but is seriously hampered if channel users are not informed of updates.

  15. Better video quality (hd)

    Currently the quality is very blurry compared to other platforms. I use a 4k webcam but its hardly 720p.. would be nice with 1080p at least.

  19. React to Chat Pop Up Window

    It would be great if we could react with thumbs up, emojis, etc. to chat pop up windows. We can reply to messages, but many times I just need to give a message a quick "thumbs up", and opening Teams to do that is a bit cumbersome.
