  1. Allow meeting organizer access to permanently mute all participants for that meeting. The conference would them be a broadcast.

    The "problem" now is that everyone can be muted, but they can un-mute themselves. I want the option to not allow them to un-mute themselves.

  2. Make chat interface cleaner

    The Conversation window is full of wasted space. I need it to be flattened, with consistent display of time, username, and text all left-aligned. The 'conversation bubbles' are distracting and wasteful of space. Highlighting my own text is distracting from the actual information I care about, which is the text from whoever I'm chatting with. Slack does it great, with a different color for each user name.

  4. Keep people in the loop with Loops

    Since we have been using Teams in our organisation (100+ people) since release we have grown into needing some form of group based chat that isn't via channels. The group Chats work ok but have limitations (newly invited users can't see history) and are missing features (Can't remove other users from a group chat).

    Space here for Loops!

    User created, administrated and deleted
    Potential to integrate with the lifecycle of the workitem
    Loops will be it's own custom channel made on the fly.
    Will will be administrated by a user or org administrators
    Will be able to have intergrations/automations
    History…

  5. This is missing


    1. A tick for sent

    2. 2 ticks for received

    3. Change in colour of ticks when read

    4. Reply

    5. Forward

    Sorry but without these most basic of basic features it sucks badly.

  7. Teams Assignment Feedback - Not all feedback is shown when exported to Excel.

    When an assignment is given, completed, graded, and given feedback, I can't see all of the feedback when the data is exported to Excel. It appears as if the first line or so of feedback is included. I use multiple lines because students will resubmit their work and I will add more feedback. I'd like to see all of the feedback in Excel to see how they have shown growth. Without this, I would have to click on every individual assignment to read the feedback rather than run the report from the assignments tab.

  8. Add grab handle icon on mouse over of top bar of attendees box instead of same arrow as the rest

    When presenting and you mouse over the box of other attendee in Teams, the finger pointer icon appears as you move over their contact details, but you cannot grab and move the box out of the presentation window when this icon shows.
    When you move to the top bar a standard pointer appears, but the same pointer remains across the rest of the desktop, so it isn't obvious this is how you grab and move the box.
    I propose that you add the animated grab icon (standard) to appear when the user mouses over the top bar of the attendee…

  10. Search Under Manage Team to Include Other Fields

    In earlier build of Teams client, when you search for members by Right click on Team name -> Manage Team page, it would also search on properties like location, apart from names of members. In the recent builds, this doesn't work (It searches only on names). I understand that this is because of change where search is server side instead of client side as it was because. However, we should bring back the ability to include other fields when searching.

    Context: I own a team where members are geographically distributed in the company. Having an ability to filter them by…

  12. Playback voicemails using default communication device

    Right now, it plays back over the default speaker but when I have a headset in use, I want to hear it in my headset (default communication device). Voicemail playback should default to this device or allow me to choose the playback device.

  13. For some reason, I'm unable to create a team. When I click "Join or Create Team" there is no option to do so.

    My company just did a migration of our email system, and even though it's worked out for the most part, for some reason, I'm unable to create my own teams. I've added a screen shot to show you what comes up. There is only the option to join an existing group or join a group with a code.

    Thank you for your help!

  14. Make Teams backend Office 365 Group visible by default in Exchange Online and Outlook

    Make Teams backend Office 365 Group is invisible by default in Exchange Online and Outlook.

    You need to run the following commands against it to make them visible there:
    Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "TestTeam1" -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:$false
    Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "TestTeam1" -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled:$false

    Please make the change to let Teams backend groups be visible by default as they are needed mainly for calendar functionality.

  16. Clicking Send during file upload should send when upload is complete

    When you are in a chat or conversation and are attaching a file, it's often slow to upload. If you hit the send icon before the upload is complete, it doesn't actually send once the upload is finished. It would be nice if you could hit send and once the upload completed it would automatically send. Otherwise you waste time just sitting there waiting for upload to finish.

  18. Please add the function to remove the specific memeber from group chat

    Please add the function to remove the specific memeber from group chat. If there is the mistake to invite someone in the group chat , I have to recreate the whole group chat again... This is not productive...
    Thank you.

  19. create a group in team to @ mention

    In our Team we have writers and translators. Instead of @ mentioning a channel, we need the ability to @ mention just writers or just translators. It would be great groups in Teams that you can @ mention in the Team and the users in this group will get notified

  20. Improve the UX

    It isnt clear how it works. When coming from skyoe or hangout, you are not familiar with this kind of social app. Therefore, sending and receiving chat is not natural... subscribing to a grouo is not yet intuitive...
