We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
A while ago I shared a new idea that I think would be a simple solution for this - The Android app has a brilliant interface that covers about 80% of my teams usage very well on a ~4-6 inch screen with roughly the same dimensions as the Skype IM windows I use. Why not just make that already built Android interface an option on the desktop build and maybe relabel it as "compact Mode"? It would be minimal dev time and would make a number of users very happy.Anthony commented
There is a lot of wasted space on the desktop application when the window is scaled down to its smallest size. I want to run it in that smaller size so it can run in the corner of one display but still show my middle pane that shows conversations and teams depending on the context selected in the far left. Having those panes as slide out drawers with no option to pin is frustrating when there is so much unused space on the sides of the chat entries and text box.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered for testing the Office 365 group calendar. The TAP team will be reaching out as we are closer to being ready.
