  1. Add functionality for simultaneous interpretation of audio/video meetings with human interpreters..

    For meetings with participants who speak different languages, it would be great to enable an interpreter console feature, allowing participants to choose their preferred audio channel (language), and listen to the interpreter (a meeting participant who could be remotely connected) rendering into their language. How about an add-on app to do this?

  2. Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

    Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
    Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

  3. Add team wide reminders

    We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

    For example:
    - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
    - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
    - etc....

  5. Notification for Planner Tasks

    Planner and Teams just needs a notification - when a task has been created for an assigned user that user should receive a notification - currently we are doing a work around by starting a conversation with a mention of a member name

  7. Merge/consolidate channels

    We changed the mind about the way we used some channels. We decided that some of the channels need to be merged. It would be nice to be able to do this without using history. We want history to be merged.

  8. Export your conversations to a document.

    it would nice to have the feature to export your conversation to a document such as a word document or excel or to a file alike. this would be Handy if you need to send out the conversations to someone who you would not normally have apart of your team. this would save time and make it more user friendly. Also it will give the opportunity to store the conversation easily in a nother file

  9. Add live voting and polling to Teams Live Events

    With other platforms, you can ask participants to vote and or answer polling questions during the meeting/event. I would like to see functionality such as that available in Teams Live Events (and actually in regular meetings too).

  10. slash commands are a must-have

    Slash commands for just about every type of function are a must have. They are familiar and easy to use without having to touch your mouse, they are UI-agnostic. Admittedly not terribly discoverable – but the UI is even worse, as their is no real option for auto-completion of UI elements, now is there?

    needs your feedback  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi folks, we are collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.

    Please comment in the thread below about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.

    Thank you!

  13. Please extend the Teams Mobile App to work with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

    I'm often on the road and my company relies heavily on online meetings :-) So, we are starting to leverage Teams meetings more and more, so when I'm in my car I need an easy way to join meetings and maybe also read messages. While this is way easier now, than it was in SfB Mobile (thanks!) it would be awesome to have an Android Auto / Apple CarPlay Extension to have a somewhat easier and "nearly hands-free" user experience. This would make me much more productive, even if I'm traveling :-)

  14. Using Teams Offline

    MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:


    Generally want to use Teams offline:

    If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

    Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

    It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

    Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.


    Edit while offline:

    just been using teams wiki to take and share notes in a meeting. when the…

  15. Share pointer while screen sharing

    TeamViewer screen sharing has a nice feature to share pointer. So when other meeting participants wants to show the presenter something on screen, the presenter can see where they pointing. It's really useful feature.

  16. Let me @ Mention the user's first name instead of their DisplayName

    Hi,
    When mentioning someone with @, is it possible to use the user alias instead of the Display Name? In Slack for example, it is possible to choose whether to display the full name or the user name when being mentioned. Could be great to have it on MS Teams because it is shorter in messages where many mentions are provided.

  18. Video screen size when sharing screen

    When video chatting and sharing your screen, the video window is very small and you can't resize it.

    When you are in an active meeting and have video and screen sharing enable:
    1. Able to resize video preview
    2. Able to use multiple monitors with video on one and screen share on the other.
    3. Able to move the video around the screen freely.
    4. Overlay video on full screen screenshare.
    5. Able to freely resize your split screen with video and screenshare.

  19. Turn off message preview in notification toast

    Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"

  20. When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply.

    When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply. If a user leaves the company or if we have new users, it is a manual process to add or remove them from a Team. Since we can select a Security group or Distribution list, changes to either should be reflected on the Team members.
