  1. Raised hand reminder

    people often forget that the raised hand icon is still raised after saying what they wanted to. So the suggestion is to either deactivate the icon after it is detected that the person has spoken or simply flash a reminder to the person that your hand is still raised, put down or keep raised

  2. User Status is confusing for Busy, In Meeting, on call

    For Busy, In Meeting and On Call, all shows same Red color circle as status. I am not able get from icon until I hover on it and read the tooltip. :(

    It should be different for each status so that user can get the meaning from its icon itself.
    Thanks.

  4. Option to close\hide multiple chat windows

    From the recent tab, if we could right click and an option to close\hide multiple chat windows. Precious seconds are lost for those who don't use keyboard shortcuts.
    Another idea could be adding a checkbox when mouse howers over. This way we can quickly select chats and then close them at once.

  5. User Setting to define how many video windows to display.

    Visually impaired staff have found the move to a 3 x 3 grid problematic as they find it harder to see the images. Could there be a user defined setting which enables people to determine whether they wish to display 2x2, 3x3 grid plus whatever it ends up moving to.

  7. Let me write on turned in assignment, please!

    Would be more user friendly if I could write comments on a turned in assignment while I grade it, as I can do with a paper assignment.

  8. Seperate windows for conversations

    Rather than every conversation being on the main teams window, they could appear in their own smaller individual window, similar to Skype for business

  9. autocorrect in chat

    In Chat, please could we set up autocorrect words for frequently used words or frequent mistakes - like we can in Office docs.Or could Teams use the Office autocorrect list? For instance, when typing in a hurry on a UK keyboard I often type "can;t" instead of "can't". I'd love autocorrect to fix this automatically for me - it works in Outlook as I've set up a correction.

  10. Higher contrast font colors, more font size choices

    Have the font color selection include fonts with better contrast levels from the background. On the standard white background (don't know about others as my company has disabled themes), colors other than black are extremely hard to read.

    As other users have noted, please add more font size choices, particularly for Wiki page titles. They are barely distinguishable from subheadings.

  11. caption

    Live Meeting Closed Captions scrolling.

    The new live closed captions during meetings are awesome!!
    Sometimes people talk extremely fast and the captions scroll away before I can read everything. Would it be possible to make the captioning window larger and add the ability to scroll back and forth?

  12. Export complete Chat conversations

    Right now if we want to save the conversation of a Chat we do so by individually selecting them one by one.

    It will be helpful if we can do that by right clicking a chat window and export/save is gets enabled.

    be able to create shortcuts to files and folders within teams.
    the shortcut be able to link to a folder in a different team, you would only see this as long as you are a member of that team.

  16. Allow users to change FONT SIZE in settings.

    The system font size is NOT enough (relative sizing). If I increase font size in OS it messes up other apps I need the ability to chane the size just in Teams

  19. Dragon Naturally Speaking

    Better integration with Dragon Naturally Speaking software. Since my company upgraded from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams I have lost the ability to be directly into Teams using the voice-to-text software Dragon Naturally Speaking, and rather it requires a cumbersome pop-up box. Skype for Business did not have this problem and worked just the same as Word, Excel, Outlook, Chrome, etc. Teams has lost its ability

  20. Improve Microsoft Teams accessibility

    Microsoft Teams is not as accessible for blind persons, as it is necessary for them to work with it independently. When using a screenreader, it is very difficult for a blind user to get to the material (s)he wishes to find. This is the result of a test in the downloaded app version, in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer: In all cases, it is very difficult to navigate well and e.g. get all documents (and screenreading softrware Virtual Jaws doesn’t improve the situation). It is important to explore how to improve this, as Microsoft Teams is getting more and more…
