  1. Notification sounds.

    There is no option for notification sounds. I don't receive any audible notifications any time someone posts in a channel or feed. There is a visual notification but I don't have this window in view constantly, so an audible sound would be great. Hard to believe this isn't already an option.

  3. Is a Team Private or Public? Can you make it visible at a glance?

    Can there be a banner, an icon, a something indicating whether a Team I belong to is private or public?

    Say like in Yammer we know that the external networks are signaled with a globe (on the left), or in Teams iteself, private channels have a locker (on the right).

    Would be soooo handy!

    Thanks for considering it,

  4. Live Captions and GDPR - a solution for a legal problem

    Microsoft should be interested to deliver Software which can be used according European Law.
    The problem I see is (may be a European lawyer can give a better explanation than me):
    - The processing of personal data (https://gdpr-info.eu/art-4-gdpr/) can only be done on agreement or a legal base.
    - If there is a possibility to better integrate disabled persons, it has to be provided.
    - The processing of health data is especially protected under https://gdpr-info.eu/art-9-gdpr/

    This looks like a contradiction for Live Caption:
    The voice of a European may only be processed (trans-scripted in Live Captions) if he…

  6. Notification of Hand Raised during Screen Share across all applications/screens

    When someone is presenting during a Teams Meeting, and while sharing a specific application on a different screen, when someone raises a hand, the person doesn't get notified if they don't have the Teams task options on that screen. Please add a feature to notify the user across all applications/screens during the screen share.

  7. Archive old assignments in Teams rather than delete them.

    Can you add the provision to archive assignments in Teams?

    Our teachers are currently relying heavily on Teams to deliver Remote Learning to students self isolating due to Covid19. As we all assign more and more tasks we don't want to delete them as this will lose the valuable record of work needed for assessment and evidence for LA review and OFSTED inspection. But at the same time teachers don't want assignments from weeks, or even months ago cluttering up screen space leading to confusion for students and teachers alike.
    An archiving or exporting function it would improve things greatly. …

  9. Call history for Auto Attendants or call queues

    We have had several queries regarding obtaining logs from call queues or auto attendants similar to those that could be obtained for S4B.

    Is there anyway this can considered so we can investigate issues raised for these voice apps

  11. Teams - Extend permission to download the list of participants to all Presenters.

    In Teams meetings and Live Events, extend permission to download the list of participants to all Presenters, as the Administrator may not be available during the session to do so.

  14. Ability to add the Flow app to a private channel

    Currently, you can't add the Flow app to a private channel. Because of this, you can't also do other things that require it, like send a message or an adaptive card from Power Automate to a private channel.

  15. Talk about specific agenda in a chat group

    I am of a chat group with around 10 people and at times given a lot messages, some topics got lost or unattended too.

    My request is to create a feature where we can create certain agenda/topics in a chat group, so that people can answer specific to each topics. This way each agenda is address.

    I've find that a lot of times some topics are lost in the midst of multiple messages.

  16. Being able to Archive Assignments in Teams

    This is a MUST if you want teachers to adopt and use your platforms. We are entering a new grading period. Students should see a fresh platform. I do not want/have the time/ and need for documentation the assignments we had last semester.

    Thank you for your time,

  17. Teams keeps microphone open

    Teams 1.3.00.16851 (64 bits) on Ubuntu 20.04.1

    Teams keeps using the microphone after a call is finished. Teams should stop accessing microphone once the call is finished.

  18. MS Teams channels to use another SharePoint library other than the default

    It would be absolutely beneficial for organizations with large SharePoint foot print to have MS Teams use another library for the team channels other than the default Documents library. Channel folder should really be kept in their own MS Teams Library. This would allow SharePoint Site collections with existing documentation that belong to well organized teams to extend their site to MS Teams without the utter confusion that takes place in the document folder. Microsoft did not think this through carefully and from an end user experience. There are teams that want to keep their content under a single structure,…

  19. chat history delete or archive

    On the Chat panel, allow the user to delete chat history or at least archive it. Hide feature is nuisance.

    Also, the chat contact list should be the default view rather than opening the recent chat.

  20. Teams Live Event

    Hi Team, We cannot use the open event mode because in the past we had some "link sharing cases" where uninvited people outside of Ericsson (client and competitors) were able to access the Live event. Since then we take care to avoid this happening again just making use of the "only invited" mode when broadcasting our AEM events.

    Please, what is recommendation in this case if Teams Live is unable to identify our DDLs (country lists) ? as it was applicable and Skype broadcast live event.
