Loving teams but have found that it's not well suited to my organisation's Terminal Server/RDS environment. Emojis don't appear in the chat and because there's no "admin" install, we've run into deployment difficulties too. At present I've had to manually copy the application files out of appdata so we can make available for all users. It's not ideal but it works. Was wondering if there was plans to make a more admin-friendly install available and if anything could be done about the missing emojis?

+1 for this.

Same here...

Slack suffers from a similar issue, would be great to see MS improve on it with Teams, it's an enterprise application so should really support such a common enterprise deployment scenario out-of-the-box.

Has issue with Teams in Terminal server resolved. Trying to deploy in TS now but reading through past posts is making me nervous.

I have not seen any usability issues with Teams in RDS, it's quite slow, but it does work.  My main concern is the amount of resources it consume.  Looking at my session now, there are five instances of Teams processes running, consuming 350MB RAM between them.  Maybe this is normal, but to me it seems excessive and does not scale well in a larger RDS environment.  For reference, the old Lync client uses more like 50Mb RAM and runs only a single process runs per user, as expected.

https://teams.microsoft.com from intranet works fine for us.

We ended up removing Teams from our RDS servers, it's just too much of a resource hog the way it is done as a webapp/webview.  Hopefully Microsoft will consider making a native Windows app for it so it can be as responsive as the Lync/SkypeForBusiness app is, not sure large scale rollouts on shared hardware are feasible otherwise...

Hi Guys, any news about this topic? Does Microsoft support using Microsoft Teams (client) with RDS2016?

Is this topic dead? We recently had a request from a client to implement Teams in an RDS environment as well.

Bing brought me to this thread with the search "Teams RDS". With nearly 8000 views I think its still a valid question. Always a good idea to Bing RDS plus any new application before installing to see what others have to say :) - I'm about to dogfood Teams before making recommendations to clients.

According to the uservoice Microsoft is now planning a change for the issue with non persistant VDI’s
