  1. Toggle Between Teams without Going Back to Teams Menu

    Currently, when you're in a Team and you need to go to a different Team, you have to go back to your ALL TEAMS menu. Why can't there just be a drop menu (or smtg) that brings up your list and you can toggle between Teams right there. The extra set of leaving and coming back in is annoying and takes too much time.

  3. Scheduled Meeting can be joined by 1 or more participants in advance and same for End meeting

    A Meeting which has been been scheduled can be entered by 1 or more participants in advance. And same for a ended meeting it is annoying. This feature of entering the schedule before and later should be avoided.

    Also any person can chat after meeting and gets appended in the channel meeting chats.

  7. Give user control over which speaker on PC that the Teams app will use. Better, use Windows default settings.

    At startup, MS Teams picks a speaker that it decides it wants to use on my Windows 10 PC, and sets the volume to max.

    I have six different speaker choices: the PC itself, speakers in each of my two monitors, a Jabra speaker phone, Sennheiser headphones, and Bose external speakers (usually my Windows default).

    When I join each Teams meeting, Teams arbitrarily chooses one of my speakers for it's audio output and then BLASTS the audio! The Teams choice is never what I have chosen as my Windows default.

    Today I cannot change which speakers Teams uses. I also…

  8. Please provide display options that will allow a user to do actual work on the screen without having to minimize the current task to read.

    Please provide display options that will allow a user to do actual work on the screen without having to minimize the current task to read a message, just a MinUI mode with a button to switch back and forth between MinUI and FullUI.

  9. Allow Join With Code

    When creating a live event with the "public" status, the only way to "join" the event is by using the link, which means that the link somehow needs to get to the other party.
    I suggest you add the ability to generate a code for anyone to join, this way you can easily hand it over to anyone by means other then sending an actual link.

    Then, we can tell people to "go to teams.ms and enter 123456 to join"

    See search trend on Google for one keyword https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?geo=US&q=teams%20join%20with%20code

  10. Broadcast Tab - Broadcast to Enterprise

    There is currently an application that can be migrated to Teams called "Company Communicator" but it would be nice if this was integrated into Teams. Company communication and Broadcasting to the company such as emergencies or service down prompts have never been more important than in today's current world where working from home is on a massive scale. Therefore please review this and set it as a high priority currently we are reviewing another service due to Teams not being able to offer this functionality.

  11. When you turn on your video directly turn on your preferred background so people first don't see your home.

    When I am in a call and want to turn on my video it always starts without a background and people see my messy office so then I quickly have to change it to my preferred background. I would like the idea that you can choose a standard background in the settings and when you turn on your video it automatically shows this background for every call.

  13. Teams Channels: boost a post

    Understanding that the posts are based on timeline, nontheless our organization needs to be able to repost (promote) a post.

    In my organization we perform live training sessions on Teams in massive way, posting the future trainings to come, in a channel. (preparing the week to come training)

    When the day arrive that the training occur, we would like to just on a click of a button re-post that post, with the "immediate" timeline, just like a copy of the post that publishes it as if it's a new one

    Many competitors have this ability to re-post/promote/push a publication on…

  16. Acknowledgement of a message

    Please consider adding a emoticon to just acknowledge a message for some statements/situations don't warrant a like or a reaction.
    Also extend the reply option encapsulating the original statement that is available on the phones to the windows app too.

  17. Store files task in users folders

    An interesting option would be: that the subjects and their tasks are linked to folders of the subjects in the user's OneDrive.
    When the teacher creates a task with a file and automatically assigns it to a user in this user's subject folder, a copy of the task file is created in write mode.
    And it is the link to this file that will be sent when the task is terminated.
    The user can no longer modify the file without the teacher's permission
