2020-06-22 Monday - Product Improvement Suggestions for Microsoft Teams

Today I've shared the following product improvement suggestions with Aya Tange (Product Marketing Manager | Microsoft Teams at Microsoft),

1) Ability to drag-and-drop contacts from one Contact Group - to another.   

2) When in a Team Meeting - the ability to dock and hide that annoying navigation bar across the lower portion of the screen.  

3) A configuration option to include all calls in Activity view (for a consolidated and single view of my history)   

4) An option within a Meeting Chat - to be able to export the chat history to: Word, PDF - or, perhaps copy to OneNote.  

5) A way to configure the default screen background - and eliminate the need to set it again, and again, and again - for every call.

6) A way to view all recent chat history (including chat from within calls) 

7) Add option in Settings > General to be able to change the font size used
