  1. Extend "Lobby - Only me" to allow specific users (e.g. a delegate) to join

    While it is GREAT that the "Only me" option has been added, there are scenarios where it would be useful to allow a designated co-host to also join the meeting prior to the Organiser.

    Imagine a delegate scheduling a meeting and being able to bypass the lobby as well as the organiser.

  2. Add extra translation transcripts AFTER a Teams Live Event has run

    Current all alternate languages need to be entered into a Live Event prior to it running. When looking to provide on-demand viewing after the Live Event itself, we get suggestions to add a language that wasn't on the event. This seems that it shouldn't be too hard to add, but is currently unavailable.

  6. Improve Performance - Very Basic

    The very basic requirement with loads of functionality is performance and I see it totally missing from teams. It actually decreases your productivity.
    Multitasking, while on a call it s not at all possible, Teams just keeps on hanging. Response time of a single click is as big as 10 secs.

    This needs to immediately addresses or Teams might take a hit on user base pretty soon.

  7. In cases where a user has been added or removed from Azure AD, the notification incorrectly shows this as having been done by the team owner

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Azure AD でユーザーを追加や削除をした場合に、チーム所有者で追加や削除されたように表示される
    In cases where a user has been added or removed from Azure AD, the notification incorrectly shows this as having been done by the team owner


    ■Description(内容):
    管理者権限のあるユーザーにて Azure AD でユーザーを追加や削除をした場合に、チーム内の通知として、管理者ユーザーではなく、そのユーザーが参加しているチーム所有者で追加や削除がされたように表示される。
    追加や削除を実際に行った管理者ユーザーで表示されるようにしてほしい。

    In cases where a user with admin privileges has added or removed a user via Azure AD, the notification appears as though the owner of the team in question did it, rather than the administrator.
    Please make it so that when additions and removals are done like this, it shows as having been done by an administrator.

  8. Remove hyperlink in chat editor

    When pasting text that contains a hyperlink into a chat, the link gets pasted as well. This is fine, but sometimes I don't want the link included (for example, pasting a paragraph from wikipedia will include tons of links that I probably don't care about).

    Any one of the following solutions would be fine:
    1. Adding an editor button for "Remove link"
    2. When editing a link by clicking the "Insert link" button, the pop-up has a "Remove link" option
    3. When editing a link by clicking the "Insert link" button, clicking the X in the "Address" input removes the…

  9. Connect to Outlook to Shifts

    From an end-user perspective, it would be helpful if the Shifts App connected to Outlook in some way. Either from the Shifts App send a time-off request as an appointment to Outlook, or from Outlook request time-off in Shifts. I am guessing the first way would be easier.

  10. Keep track of how long a meeting lasted

    It would be nice when you join a meeting via the "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" link in the invite that you could keep track of those meetings and how long they lasted.

  12. Bring back Full Screen and Pin views in Teams Calls. They no longer exist in the newest version.

    Teams used to have a "pin" feature to lock a camera view onto the screen. Teams also had a 'full screen' view that eliminated the Teams interface (for recording).

    The latest version of Teams (build 1.3.00.19173 (64-bit)) does not have these features anymore.

    They were super useful, as my business department relies on these two features almost exclusively.

    Please restore these features.

  14. Stay in the same view after working on a document

    Assume you are working in a team that is in the middle of a long list of teams you are a member of;

    -Finance Team

    -Channel A
    
    -Channel B
    -Channel C

    Go in to a channel and open a document. After closing the document the list of teams refreshes and you you are brought to the top of it. You can no longer see the team you were working in or the channels in it. Instead you must scroll back down to find your team again if you want work on a document in a different channel.

    This is a…

  15. acessiblity - described video/talk to text

    I experience hearing difficulites using a computer and find that through the computer I am not able to hear all that is being stated. It would be amazing if there could be an accompanying described video feature that could go across the bottom of the screen that would use the talk to text feature that I could read what was being said. This would also be very useful when there is sound issues for particpation, esp if the input was from the person's computer and broadcasted to the others in the form of sound and text.

  17. excuse from meeting

    Sometimes during a meeting with many attendees, I need to duck out (e.g. answer the door to get a package, nip to the rest room etc) It would be nice to be able to notify the other attendees that I have temporarily "left the meeting room" without having to interrupt the conversation, e.g. Highlight my avatar somehow or pop up a notification until I rejoin

  18. Do not DELETE chats of deleted/inactive users

    In a big company, people come and GO. When they leave, the chats any user had with them disappear. It should not.

    The chat of inactive or deleted users must remain accessible to the other parties they wrote to.

  19. Set default Question Mark with Emoji

    I feel sometimes like getting blamed when I am asked questions from questioners (mostly co-workers) on Microsoft Teams, though the questioner has no intention to blame me. If everybody uses emoji "?" (like a pink color question mark or a cute version question mark), not normal "?", it would relieve the tense and might be great for better communication.

  20. Organize/hide/unhide Threads

    There is only the ability to hide threads in the messaging section. However, the threads cannot be "unhidden" unless someone posts a new message in the thread. I would like to be able to hide, unhide, and organize my threads as I see fit, and not have to wait on someone to post a message to see a thread again if I decide to hide it.
