  1. Is it possible to have option for banner to display on bottom left corner instead of bottom right? It disrupts my work on the bottom right.

    Please have option to move notification banner to bottom left hand side or top right corner instead of bottom right corner please. The notifications on bottom right corner disrupts my work. Thank you.

  3. quick chat from meeting

    It would be nice if when in a multi-person meeting you could right click on one of the participates and send a chat to that person rather then clicking on Chat icon (outside of the meeting) and then searching for the person and then be taken out of the meeting to only see the person talking.

  4. Add a feature to be able to hide someones video

    It would be great to hide video's because some people keep theirs on when the presenter has their on, it would be nice to be able to hide those people so we can focus on the presentation and the presenter only.

  6. Easy way to view team membership when in a channel limited to only team members

    Currently, when on the "Posts" tab of a selected channel that has access limited to just team members, I see a "Team" icon in the upper right telling me that access is limited to the team.

    I'd like to also have a way to view the team-member roster, e.g. by clicking on that "Team" icon in the upper right. Similar as to when in a group chat, there is a people icon in the upper right that when clicked allows you to view the group chat's participants.

  7. See from which client meeting participants joined

    It would be nice if you could see in the meeting participants list from what Teams client an attendee joined a meeting (web client, desktop client or mobile client) to understand the features available to your meeting attendees, and the limitations of the platform they used to join. For example: limited screen size for mobile, no remote control on web client.

  10. Live features for producers

    Teams doesn't assume that producers might also be presenters and viewers at corporate events. So features such as change or blur background and watch event in full screen are not available, which are already available for presentes. Also being able to include participants and change role without rescheduling the event would be very helpful as these situations are recurring.

  16. Instant swapping between PowerPoint presentation and video

    Hi. When using PowerPoint I'd like to be able to click on the small small video window of myself to bring the video feature back on whilst swapping the PowerPoint into the small window. When I'd like to return to the PowerPoint I could click on it and swap it back from myself. This would allow me to instantly stop the PowerPoint to briefly practically demonstrate something and then instantly return to my open PowerPoint in the same place.

  18. video conferencing to make it better

    i find the team not robust enough for video conferencing​
    when the presenter is using the video mode (not slide mode), my screen will pop over to another screen as the other participant who is speaking or not muting his microphone.
    i hope user can change the settings accordingly to his preferences during the meeting~ to show only the presenter video sharing.

    Currently, one option of external sharing in SharePoint Online / OneDrive for Business is "existing guests only" and this way, sharing can be done only with guest users registered on Azure AD. But Microsoft Teams as of now is not provided with a function to enable the invitation of "existing guests only" to teams.

    I would like this function to be implemented as it would enhance security in…
