    This should allow user to delete the history of calls stored in the cloud or any longer term Teams backups.

    Teams should respect the right to be forgotten

    Individual users need an opt-out by default settings to not transcribe their spoken words to the meeting recording transcript.

    Saving conversation history should be an opt-in feature with the default be opted out.

    People will quit using Teams if they know it is tracking them and applying machine learning to profile them for behavior which somehow the company thinks may harm the company.

    Like MS Teams accessing the sensors on your phone to monitor what you are doing.

    It's one big GPDR problem.

    Not needed. If you really want to preserve your past chats, save them and archive them inside a file in Teams.

    Teams should be user friendly and not require users to remember lots of command line syntax.

    If I use a feature once or twice a year, I should be able to find it and not have to read lots of pages of command line help.

    I use Word for this reason and not a cryptic programmer's text editor.

    What's needed is a way to send Teams video and audio to another application and let that other application provide this functionality.

    Teams should be a conduit and not the end all solution for each function.

    Open Excel file in the Teams app is too slow. Other products, like browsers, already have this.

    Why can't teams just provide standard functionality built-in like other applications?

    Teams should not be a shared everything kitchen sink. Shared whiteboard should be in a different product.

    Adding in every possible feature will make Teams unmanagable, make teams slow and use lots of memory.

    Already, it cut my laptop battery life in half when disconnected from a power source.

    Not needed. Archived chats should show the full URL. The shortened URL won't be available in a few months after it is posted.

    Not needed. I use a screen reader and emoji require me to re-read and translate the emoji to a "yes" or "no".

    I download multiple files every day. Shifting the work from Teams to me as and end user is unacceptable.

    I use Teams on a desktop and not a mobile device stop building a product for the lowest common denominator for each of the platforms - how Apple does not give a file browser in phone.

    Lack of respect for the customers again.

    Needs a way to filter out this noise and not have these extra interruptions to my work schedule.

    Each interruption, say a cute sticker posted by a teammate, breaks my productivity by 20 minutes or more.

    This is a serious drain on our organization's productivity.

    Remove the headshots from messages
    Remove icons from messages
    Remove white space
    Remove all of the fancy fonts

    I should be able to see 40 or more lines of text on the screen at a time on a desktop, 20 lines on a phone, 40 lines on a tablet.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. We are continuously improving the clients to use less memory and RAM.

    The upgrade to Electron 10 has rolled out fully to the public at this point. Telemetry and testing has shown that this is helping to improve memory performance on the client.

    We will continue to work on improvements, and will share more updates as they become available.

    For more details on how Teams currently uses memory, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-memory-usage-perf.

    There is already a "memory" hog Teams user voice request with thousands of votes.

    Suggest: Turn of participant videos in the mean time.

    We are happy to share that Electron 10 is rolling out to the public ring now, so you should notice improvements. We expect overall performance of Teams to improve even further with upcoming fixes around the calling and meeting features We will share another update as soon as we are able to.

    Teams uses an excessive amount of memory.

    Search for "memory" in Teams user voice to see the one with thousands of votes and no resolution more than two years after it was created.

    Inform your team members to not post meaningful messages in chat.

    Teams should allow for permanent delete of chat messages include deleting them from any cloud backups, short term or long term storage.

    How does hiding screen content by the control bar even pass usability testing?

    Fix this, it impacts our business presentations.

    Me too. I want to have a setting to opt out from my voice being transcribed to text during a meeting.

    It is a compliance issue.

    Manually clearing the Teams file cache, editing the registry, or using the Windows 10 credential manager should not be required to sign out of an application.

    Built-in features should work.

    I sign-in and sign-out every day and should not have to do a manual work around.

    I do not want another co-worker accessing files or chat messages related to my company financials for example.
