  1. Allow Admins to Set Notifications for Groups and Channels

    Currently, it up to users to turn on notifications for new posts in channels. This should be up to the admin/channel owners as these are sometimes used for business operation notifications and we can't rely on every user to actually turn on notifications for a channel. In fact, there is far too much left up to the user that a Teams Admin should have the ability to setup as an organizational policy.

  2. Allow Live Polls in Channel Meetings

    Currently, live polls are not available for Teams meetings held within a channel. Many of our Teams meetings take place within channels, so this is a barrier for those that wish to use the live polling feature.

  3. Hide or Delete Existing Teams Templates

    Is there plans to allow the ability to hide or delete Teams templates?

    There are templates that don't apply to some organizations, such as "Collaborate within a Bank Branch", "Collaborate on Patient Care", "Hospital", "Organize a Store", etc.

    The amount of options for Teams templates now adds to a wealth of confusion to users when they go to create a team.

    Currently when you highlight any Template in the Teams Admin Center the only options are to edit or Duplicate.

  4. Meeting notes should allow full OneNote capability

    Full OneNote capability should be available in Meeting Notes. For example you cannot use flags in Meeting Notes but flags are available and commonly used in OneNote. Another example is basic cut/copy/paste functionality is different between OneNote and Meeting Notes.

  6. Bug: Inconsistency in being able to add users to Private Channels via Web/Desktop Clients

    Referred from Tech Community: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/can-t-add-members-to-private-channels/m-p/1088400#M42918

    Issue is inconsistency when adding users to private channels via the web and desktop clients. Sometime users can and sometimes users can't. Workarounds to this solution include adding them on mobile (both IoS/Android) and completely removing member from the Team and re-adding them

  8. in breakout rooms having access to a call queue ticket

    As a teacher, I put the students in various breakout rooms (I can have 15 breakout rooms/class). When students need help or want to share their ideas with me, they call me, however if Im in a current meeting room my options are to hang up on them, accept the call or chat (which takes away my from my time). If they want me in their rooms they keep calling me, or leave the class...which is very frustrating for both parties!!!!

    It would be a great idea in breakout rooms to incorporate a 'queue ticket' with 1 click... so they…

  9. Customize default sort order of folders in Teams

    Folders in Teams are sorted by default on last modified date. There is no option to set a different default sort order like an alphabetic sort order.

    Please add options that allows the user to set his/her own default sort order in order to sort folder names in Teams.

  11. Test or Assessment Proctor Meeting Version - Proctor can mute/unmute testers

    Education partners have an urgent need for an affordable proctoring tool that they can mute/unmute participants during an a secure assessment to minimize the noise generated by several participants during testing. This special Proctored Assessment Meeting would have a warning that the organizer can mute/unmute any participants microphone, letting participants know that privacy is different in Proctored Meetings.

    LockDown browsers will not close web-based video conference applications like Microsoft Teams - web or Google Meets when opened. To proctor a test with several students, this MSTeams-web version needs to be available for testers to begin a proctored meeting prior to…

  12. save manually assigned breakout rooms on teams

    I would love to save my manually assigned breakout rooms. My students are in the same breakout room every class, so this would save a ton of time!

  13. Record all Rooms in Breakout Rooms at once

    I would like to record all rooms in the breakout rooms at once instead of having to go to each room to start the recording. This can be amazing for interpersonal speaking assignments, and this way can cut time spent jumping in and out from room to room to press start recording. Maybe this can be under "Send an Announcement"

  14. Automatically pop out a chat when Teams is minimized

    The new pop-out feature for Teams should be optimized to automatically pop out any incoming chat when Teams is minimized, in the background, or when the user is not in the chat module. Additionally, any subsequent incoming chats should be side-tabbed within the original pop-out.

  15. Raise Hand: order in which hands have been raised

    In a larger meeting it is sometimes difficult for the "moderator" to keep track who wants to say something. Wouldn't if be good to associate every raised hand with a number that keeps track of who raised their hand first?

  16. Enable meetings and live events to stream directly to outside rtmp(s)

    So add a option to OUTPUT the meeting or live event to a outside RTMP(S) URL to cast a meeting directly into a outside platform.

    This way use a meeting/live event but doing real time playback on any other platform.

  17. Nested Teams and sub channels (Re-opened)

    1541 have already voted for this, but Microsoft have disabled the option for addition votes. (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16954120-nested-teams-and-subchannels)

    Sub channels or grouping of channels, createdand managed by the team owner.

    Could it be possible to create teams within teams. For example, we have a Development Team at our company which consists of two sub-teams, tech support team and project team.

    I’d love to be able to have a “home” top-level channel for my project team, and then have sub-channels for each project that we are working on.

  18. Enable Organizer to present to ALL Breakout Rooms simaltaneously

    As soon as Breakout Rooms are started, the host can only send simple text chats to each group.

    It would be very useful to let the Presenter continue to share their presentation, whilst still using breakout rooms.

    A simple example being a quiz-like situation; the students are broken into teams (breakout rooms), but the presenter is running through a live powerpoint of questions.

    Each Breakout room can see and hear the main presentation, but can still talk amongst themselves.

  19. Students view all assignments at once

    Add the ability for students to view all of their assignments at once across all of their class teams.

    Currently students can only view assignments 1 class team at a time.

    Please add the ability for them to see all of their assignments at once, the assignments tab on the left currently is a perfect home for this, and if i remember correctly used to display all assignments for the user, however it now gives the exact same interface as navigating to the individual team and clicking on the assignments tab at the top.

  20. Add a hide non-video participants button

    When you left click on a non-video participant, you should be able to select to hide all non-video participants. This will also help you with how you can not view very many people at once
