  2. Status Idle Time

    These settings are currently - If you've been idle for 10 minutes or more, Teams will automatically change your status from Available to Away.

    This NEEDS to be something as a user you can manually change the idle time like Skype for business (see attached image).

  3. More info in individual chats

    Would like more information in individual chats, the person's name at the top appears- Add the Team they are in with you. Or a listing of Teams you share in common when you mouse over their icon to to find out their information.

  5. Making a Default Background

    Please consider allowing for a user to permanently set a given background as a default rather than having to set it every time you enter a new teams call

  6. Incoming call has the Hang-Up icon RED and Answer Call button same as background. I always HANG UP first. Please put the Answer icon GREEN

    Change answer button for incoming calls to GREEN! I see the RED Hangup icon and always HANG UP because it stands out.

    Change the icon to GREEN for Answer!!!

  11. Allow me to share multiple applications without sharing my entire screen.

    We often share during calls, but sharing the entire screen is not helping when reminders come in that distract from the shared screen and discussion. It would be great to have a feature similar to WebEx allowing the selection of multiple apps that are ok to share (e.g. all xls and all ppt, but not other apps).

  12. Ability to query channel message timestamps via MS Graph

    I was developing a Python app to query MS graph for pulling a comprehensive report on MS Teams usage in the environment, including inactive Teams.Teams activity may be deducted from the timestamps of the latest messages in the Team channels - when we try to issue a get request for this node we get an unknown error: messagesendpoint = ('https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/%s/channels/%s/messages' % (teamid, channel_id))

    This is also discussed on the Graph repo issues section: https://github.com/microsoftgraph/microsoft-graph-docs/issues/4797

  13. Voice Message Feedback in Assignments

    Add a record feedback button in the area where you can give points, rubrics, overall feedback in assignments. It would make marking x100 quicker if we could record constructive voice feedback rather than typing it out or editing the Word documents we set.

    Or add the dicate feature already built-in Word into the overall feedback section. It is a fantastic way of setting work in class but slow typers as well as the period of time it takes to load a document means marking is not as efficient as it could be on the app!

    Thanks for all your hard…

  15. Raise your hand function

    The raised hand only seems to appear when showing the list of participants and I generally find that once people start a meeting they tend to be looking at the chat box function rather than list of participants so you wouldn’t necessarily see that someone has raised their hand.

  16. Make attendee gallery bar moveable

    When an attendee shares a screen everyone's camera image is shown at the bottom of the screen. As it is natural to look at someone when they are speaking the viewer is looking at the bottom of the screen rather than into their own camera which is almost always at the top of the screen. This gives the impression others are not paying attention. This could be easily addressed if there was an option to move the gallery to the top of the screen.

  17. Allow admins to restrict attendees from inviting people to meetings or meet nows

    At the moment, an attendees of a meet now can invite another user to be an attendee, even when that second user is not a member of the team. Whilst this can be useful, there are two scenarios that have cropped up which are cause for concern -

    In an educational context, you can't prevent pupils adding other pupils who aren't part of the class in order to disrupt the lesson.

    If you are in a meeting of a confidential nature, you cannot prevent an attendees from inviting someone into that meeting that shouldn't be there.

    It would be very…

  18. Make snap out chat windows flash in tray when reply is received like SfB does.

    Toast notifications bring the user to the main client. The snapped out chat window should flash when there is activity.

  19. Discoverable Private Channels

    It would be useful to have discoverable private channels (just like we have discoverable private teams)

    i.e. it is important for a channel to be private in a team that is shared within your company and the client

  20. Options for Downloading Gradebook Data

    I would like to see options for users to check off for downloading their gradebook data. I'm thinking checkboxes of data to include in the download file such as:

    ___ feedback

    ___ points earned (assignment title)

    ___ points possible (assignment title)

    ___ fraction points earned/points possible

    ___ choose dates to include in date (date range)

    Thank you!!
