Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
As all the others are saying - Teams is impossible to use. Memory usage on my high spec laptop often exceeds 3Gb, and sits at 20-40% cpu with nothing showing - no alerts, unread threads etc.
I am activly encouraging people to evaluate tools like slack, etc when asked how I am finding teams.
It has the potential to be a great product, but not the way it is working now. The development roadmap MUST address these core issues first before adding any new features. Teams needs to be a lean and mean collaboration tool, that improves our productivity, not something we have to fight until we get so fustrated we turn it off, and go back to Skype/webex etc
It feels like we are asking for a fundamental change in the way teams is architected, so if this is the case do it now.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.
Alex & the Teams team
So now its the Fall, and no news?
Fast tenant switching is such a minor user requirement that I don't think any of us will use it.
What we all need NOW is the ability to interact with different teams over multiple organisations at the same time, and I mean at the same time. On a teams conf call with org A and someone in org B sends me a message that I can respond to without interrupting the call I am on.
No logging in/out etc - all my teams accounts work at the same time, and I now have four of them.
This feature request is now actively being worked upon. As we move through the development process, I will post an new updates to this topic.
Please keep the votes and feedback coming in. Your feedback is shared with the feature team every month.
Fully support this necessary change. When I download an item from teams please ask me where it needs to be placed.
The "Download" folder is a waste of space and is never the right place to default.
At best we need a setting to fix the "teams" download folder or at minimum we should ALWAYS trigger the "Save As" style prompts.
Agree with everyone.
Chat is a multiline option.
"Enter" on its own should NEVER NEVER EVER commit the text, this is different to every other app I use.
Teams should be a seamless product not something I have to relearn.
We are working on a better experience in Teams when a user is not connected to the internet. No timeline to share at this point, but we will keep you posted.
Agree with everyone here - teams becomes a complete waste of space as soon as the network connection drops and you are faced with the you are offline try again popup.
I must be able to seach conversation and team boards in this state. Every other tool I use shows its no longer online, but still allows me to access data/information already stored locally.
We have just swapped from "Slack" and I am seriously considering advising that we ditch teams and go back to slack until this product is fully developed.
