  1. Count speakers time

    Hello, it would be very nice to know, at the end of a call, and even at the end of a conference the time every speaker has spoken. Yes, very nice...

  2. View Shared Desktop & View Person at same time for Sign Language users to see & communicate

    Can we please add availability for Sharing your screen, and also being able to see the person at the same time. For people using American Sign language, this is important as the viewer needs to see what the presenter is saying through American Sign Language or any sign language. This would help with communication!

  3. Team roster/Time stamp

    As a teacher moving to distant learning, it is difficult as of now to take roll or see how active students are. Adding a team roster with a time stamp of some sorts would be really beneficial. A time stamp of last activity or something to that nature.

  4. Create a top-level Contacts menu item to easily view team member status & actions

    Move Chat/Contacts to be a top-level left-nav menu item similar to all other IM tools, including Skype for Business. Teams is meant to replace existing MS IM tools and should maintain feature parity. This includes a contact list that provides the ability to quickly see contact status, initiate a chat, call, etc., and view history with a contact. It's cumbersome to have every feature that uses Contacts have their own implementation of a Contact list (see Calls, Chat, etc.) and a good indication it should be bubbled up to a top level. This could also provide the foundation for a…

  6. Possible Solution: Inviting an entire team to an MS Teams Meeting

    I had to set up a meeting too and faced a similar problem. But I may have found a temporary solution....

    Disclaimer: This may only work if you have the Ms Teams add-in on Outlook. You can check if you do by clicking on the calendar icon and if you see a purple "New Teams Meeting" at the home tab ribbon, then you are good to go. Go back to view emails and follow the steps below.


    1. In Outlook, in the Home Tab ribbon, click on the little arrow by "Quick Steps" to open the "Manage Quick Steps" box


    2. Click…

  7. File rename not syncing with Tab name

    I upload an excel file to Files and add it as a Tab on my Channel. Later, I update the file name using 'Rename' option. The name change of file does not sync on the Tab name where my excel file sits. It is inconvenient to keep updating Tab name each time, specially when you keep changing version numbers on file names.

  8. Share video clips which could be either a video from web cam or a screen recording

    If a colleague is not available for live video chat can a video recording be sent? this could consist of a recording via the webcam or a recording of the screen (inc audio). For example; demonstrating how to use a document or app?

  9. option to disable Presence in Teams Chat per user

    There have been a lot of ideas around presence.. we have a request to provide an option to disable presence on a per user basis in Teams. Concern is that the functionality could be used to assess user´s performance and availability, and we´d like to be able to provide this option to our user community.

  10. Slovak language localization for assignments and grades in Teams for EDU

    Please complete the Slovak language localization of Assignments and grades in MS Teams for EDU. It is preventing some schools and teacher from using teams for online education.

  11. pin chats and add multiple chats on the screen at once.

    I would add the ability to put pinned chat lists on a side by side basis when using the Teams version on your computer, so that the pinned items don't fall off the bottom of the screen (when this happens, chats start to get missed). so being able to group them and take up more real estate on the screen would make sense...

    also, the pop out feature might be okay, but it looks like you lose a lot of the buttons in the main teams window. would probably be better to allow the ability to arrange multiple chats in…

  12. Stop Sharing Button Goes Away [Android]

    Using the Android app 1416/1.0.0.2020032405
    If I use the Share option to share my screen and then navigate to another app, once I return to the Teams app the Stop Sharing button is no longer available. I have to use a hack to stop sharing by opting to share a photo (don't actually have to share, just select that option).

  13. Muting and unmuting a call via right-click of a minimized Teams icon

  14. Have ability for a Whiteboard and Screenshare at same time

    For example, if running a meeting where someone is doing a screenshare, it would be great to have ability to have a Whiteboard that all can update available to be run side by side. Having both screens up at same time would allow others to collaborate with running notes, or a scratchpad for the group, while one is presenting their personal screen.

  16. Redesign the Share Drawer to focus on desktop sharing

    By far the most frequent stumbling block I've seen in Teams meetings is presenters sharing a Window while thinking they're sharing a Desktop. The reason for this is that the Window sharing section is in the middle of the share drawer, which is the first place people look.

    I propose redesigning the share drawer: have a row of Desktop options with slightly larger thumbnails, then a second row of smaller thumbnails for Windows, PowerPoints, and Whiteboard. The Desktop option is almost always the intended experience for newer users.

  18. Make channel notifications default "yes"/ "active"

    I recently transferred into a new position and was added as a member to over 25 channels. Then, I had to manually set all notifications, hoping I didn't inadvertently skip any. Too much work, would rather get them and not need them, then not get them and have to remember to go look for bold areas, not knowing which update came in first, second, etc. Also, as the owner of channels with membership numbering in the 100's, I would like to know that all my members at least should have been getting real-time notifications about important posts.
