  1. Ability to set a recurring status message in Teams

    My weekly day off is Friday. I want this in my status message as from Thursday evening to Monday morning, every week.
    Currently I can set a status message, but that will be visible all week.

  2. Change sorting Type to match German speaking NORM for umlauts like Ä Ö Ü

    For administrating Student grades in Austria and Germany it would be very important to have the option to change the sorting order to match German speaking standards regarding the NAMES including umlauts like Ä Ö Ü.

    This is important since the Software wich is used for Printing the Certificate uses the national sorting order NORM.

    If there are Studentnames containing umlauts, the List will not match the Order of the official Software list. Thus providing an additional source for errors when migrating the Grades from TEAMS to the other Program!!!

  3. Show all assignments under assignments tab

    Rather than getting a list of classes for students to click into under assignments, instead, sort a whole list of every assignment by due date (upcoming and past the due date) making it easier to keep track of assignments .

  4. Add multiple (and private) channels to a Teams Meeting Invite

    It appears that I cannot invite multiple channels to a Teams meeting and I cannot ever add a private channel to a Teams meeting

  6. Synchronise status with Cisco Jabber

    Currently we have to update status manually on both applications (Busy, away etc.) same for the meetings, if a Cisco Jabber meeting is running, on teams the status is shown as available.

    There should be status synchronisation so that if for example on Cisco Jabber it is shown as "In a Meeting", same status should be shown in teams and vice versa.

  7. Automatic and Timed breakout rooms

    I am volunteering as TEALS teacher at one of the Juniro High schools in Michigan. Teacher shared that it would be great to have Breakout rooms form automatically and split people into equal size teams when possible. Also, add a timer to the breakout rooms so when the time is over everyone joins the main room back without much admin work. They use a product called NewRow which has this feature. She shared that it's a pain point for them in Teams. They use NewRow to teach Computer Programming.

  8. Team Meeting Recording - Only Host can record

    We need only host can record the meeting the participants needs to be deactivated. or the host can choose the participants who can record.

    The feature is available in Zoom. While scheduling the meeting host can delegate the recording option to some participants.

    This will be very helpful

    Thanks,
    Gajan Radhakrishnan

  9. Rename Duplicated Teams Policies

    Please could you add the option to name a policy in Teams when you duplicate it (or after it has been created). Currently, when duplicating a Teams policy (or any policy, such as app policies for example) it just appends "copy" to the name of the original and you can't change the name of it once the policy is duplicated.

  11. enable opportunistic meetings around a virtual coffee machine room

    This is idea is similar to "Random 15´ coffee meetings" but different in that it is always available and also how one implements it. To create that opportunistic chat with a colleague one doesn't normally interact with but still need to align with or bounce ideas off occasionally, there is a need for a presence/video enabled virtual room that is always available. E.g. one can fall back into the virtual room in between normally scheduled virtual meetings. It could be enabled by default or toggled on/of. It should be able to tune which colleagues are available to you based on…

  15. Sharing video&audio in PowerPoint presentation through the PowerPoint tray on Teams call

    In teams call when sharing PowerPoint presentation with an embedded Video file, you have to do it through Desktop or Window share tray as when you try to do it through PowerPoint tray the video will play on presenters view only, attendees will not see it playing. Sharing through Desktop or Window makes it hard to see chats and list of attendees at the same time, whilst PowerPoint allows it and the overall experience is better through it too - hence request to have the video/audio playing enabled through PowerPoint tray too.

  16. Please add an icon in the participation list next to each name that allows me to know who has their screens on/off?

    There would be a small box icon that appears next to the student’s name IF their screen is on. This would help me monitor in real time who is got their screen on as it hassle to compare the participation list with the screens that are on to figure out which one student is NOT on.

  17. Increase the number of participants in teams meeting from 300 to 1000

    Increase the Number of Allowed Participants in a Meeting.

    For a large company, I do not feel that capping meeting participants at 300 makes sense. I believe that this limit should be increased to allow large meetings with 1000 employees.
