Could we please get an option to minimize Teams to the system tray?

Yeah - and an option to have it start up in the system tray please :)

@James Faulk and @Daniel Coles, this is a good idea to submit to the UserVoice site at https://teams.uservoice.com/.

 

MS uses that system to gather and prioritize suggestions

You may set these preferences manually at:

 

%APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json

 

Makes sure Teams is closed first, then edit the following settings:

 

{
    "appPreferenceSettings":{
        "openAsHidden":true,
        "openAtLogin":true,
        "runningOnClose":true
    }
}

@salientgreen you can also do this, without editing the .json file manually, by right-clicking on the Teams icon and selecting the Settings menu option. These settings are available to toggle on the General tab of the subsequent menu.

There is no setting to Hide from the taskbar. All these settings in JSON available in Teams->Settings and they are nothing to do with Hide When Minimized.
