    Absolutely this!

    The UI is awful. It's so confusing and not obvious, as a result everyone just creates new conversations so the whole chat window is full of separate messages. Really cluttered!

    Agree.
    We were in a video meeting earlier today and a user posted a screenshot in the meeting chat.
    However, another user who this screenshot was directed at, has issues with seeing this.

    The issue is that the user was viewing full screen video, but did not understand how to:

    a) View/access the Channel where the Meeting was held
    b) View/access the Meeting conversation thread (where the screenshot was embedded)

    I just think the way the chat is arranged and thus how you use it, is not clear. A few points:

    a) Clicking reply to a collapsed conversation does not reveal the entire conversation! How are you meant to know what was last said?
    b) A conversation will indicated how many replies there are in a very small font, but it's not obvious for users to click this to expand the conversation. It's not signposted well enough. At least give it a different colour and/or shaded box, or add a + sign or icon. It's just not obvious for users!
    c) The horizontal bar at the top of a channel that displays: Posts, Files, Planner, Wiki etc is again not obvious enough! During meetings I have problems with getting other users in finding something like the Planner if we need to discuss our schedules! Maybe a more differentiating colour for the bar? but I understand how custom Team pictures/icons could clash. Maybe the Team picture/icon and the name of the channel is on a different line instead of mashed together on one line. That way you can add the channel description at the top, makes it more intuitive for users! (this UI is already implemented when you right click a channel and select the 'manage channel' setting - just copy that, maybe separate with a different colour between lines). I do think the spacing between each element, such as Posts, Planner, Files are too close to each other aswell.

    We are new to using Teams (brought about because of the Coronavirus issue, so working from home) but we are finding Teams is a powerful tool, but not very intuitive. It's especially difficult for some of our users who are not used using applications beyond Outlook and Office.

    We are now preparing for the roll out of Tasks in Teams which will integrate additional features integrating To-Do and Planner. This includes additional list views that also extend to tabs in teams. Further announcements about additional integration in our overall Tasks coherence effort will follow.

    You can follow the rollout via our Roadmap item: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=57213. To see a preview of the experience, please visit https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.

    We really need this feature for our design team meetings as well as client meetings.

    The ability to click the FILE tab in a channel, open up a file (say a pdf drawing) then sharing the screen with clients and being able to sketch on it would be ideal.

    There are options elsewhere to adjust camera settings, HOWEVER, when going into a scheduled meeting or when you are meeting up with a contact, there is no option available to change camera settings, see whether the camera angle is ok etc.

    It's just not consistent.

    Basically, in ANY situation going into a video meeting, whether you are the first entering the meeting, responding to a meeting request or entering a scheduled meeting, the SETTINGS option should be available.

    At the moment it's just inconsistent. I believe being the first person to enter a scheduled meeting you have the time to make your camera adjustments, in other situations, settings are not available.

    In my own case, I use my DSLR as the webcam rather than the in-built monitor webcam. However I do physically disconnect my camera to take photos! So when I re-connect, I do need to see whether the camera is framed/zoomed in on me correctly!

    With the new pop-up chat windows and when you eventually implement pop-up video windows, please allow for the option to have these 'always on top', i.e. just like the built-in Calculator App in Windows 10.

    For scheduled Meetings, like a daily group meet-up, the scheduled meeting needs to show up in the relevant channel and also as a pop up, with a 'join' button.

    We've just moved our practice on to Teams from having no work-from-home experience and the process of getting people to join a schedule meeting is not intuitive at all. What happens is that around the meeting time, say 9am, some users create they're own ad hoc meetings, so it's a job getting people to leave and re-join the correct scheduled meeting.

    Our users don't seem to check their calendars to go into the meetings, they are in the Teams chat channels by default.

    It would be good to have the Join Meeting box in the channel to open up in the Chat, say a few minute before, or even give the option to make the Join Meeting box user definable.

    If a meeting is scheduled on a reoccurring basis, say everyday at 10am, then it would be good if an automated message with a join link/button pops up at the required time in the Team Chat.

    Maybe add Planner to Outlook?

    If a reoccurring meeting is scheduled, say everyday at 10am.
    Implement an automated message in the relevant Chat team at the required time.
    The message would give an option for team members to join the meeting.
