    +1 Splitting the screen between people who are actually sharing video, and those who aren't (e.g. just showing their picture) is nonsensical.

    Example: picture a meeting with a few remote participants, and then a group of people in a conf room sharing video. Someone in the conf room start whiteboarding.

    Teams literally chops the shared video IN HALF to show you the tiles of the remote participants. So you can see 50% of a landscape whiteboard then a stack of tiles showing the participants. Seems like such an odd choice, why?

    I don't want to be a negative-nancy, but as an organization that was an early adopter of Teams, we're continually bummed this has been a top-voted issue that's relatively unresolved for TWO YEARS.

    The most common frustration noted by our users is the lack of pop-out chat. Remote employees may literally spend hours a day in screen-sharing style meetings.

    It is absurd that you have to minimize the screen-share to a thumbnail to send someone an instant message. The ability to pop-out either the screen-sharing window -or- the chat window seems so reasonable.

    Plus Skype 4 Biz, Slack, GotoMeeting, Zoom Meeting (need I go on?) have all done this for years! I don't understand why this continues to be ignored.

    Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.

    We do a ton of screen-sharing between our remote offices, and we receive a lot of complaints about CPU usage.

    CPU usage when switching between channels is a little annoying, but CPU usage during the screen share is so severe that you can't use other desktop apps.

    Note that this happens while presenting, but also just while viewing! For example, if I'm attending a meeting with a screen-share, my CPU never goes below 50% (2.5Ghz Core I5)

    This doesn't happen in Skype for Business, nor GotoMeeting. There's something very strange (to me) about VIEWING a screen share taking 50% of my CPU.

    We're testing this for a company-wide deployment, and performance has been the one of the top feedback items.

    We're standardized on mid-grade Intel i5 laptops, and are finding very laggy performance with only three teams configured. The lag is the worst when switching between tabs within the app, and when switching back to the application after changing your focus to another app.

    Is there a round of performance improvements planned? We will likely hold off on our company-wide deployment until the performance is improved.

    Having this same issue. For my users with 4GB of memory, this eventually starts to create heavy CPU load as Windows starts paging to disk.

    Ideally, you could do this both ways: free/busy search within Teams, but also having a "New Teams Meeting" button within Outlook (similar to the Skype 4 Biz integration). Then Teams would auto-create room resources in Exchange such that you can specify a team / channel as the location.

    Hi guys! Thanks for submitting this. I totally hear you and have experienced this as well.

    The good news is, we’re actively working on this. We recently pushed an update that improved performance when channel switching and scrolling. So this should be considerably better for you.

    We’ll continue to make improvements on performance, so stay tuned for updates.

    Keep the suggestions coming and thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra
