  1. It takes far too long IMHO for MS Teams to load after a reboot or logging on as a new user.

    And while it's loading, I can't really do anything else – even on a relatively new Dell laptop with i7 processor.

  3. Allow using Large Gallery View's single video feed in smaller meetings

    TL;DR: Allow using the LGV even in small meetings to get the benefit of downloading a single video stream instead of several, when the available bandwidth can't handle several streams.

    There's several places where the Internet connection has very small bandwidth, or is very spotty. Our kids' school uses Teams and creates meetings with at most 6 pre-school/elementary grade students at a time. This means the option to use Large Gallery View is disabled for them, and almost every time they have issues because they each see 1, 2 or 3 video feeds from the other participants (but video is…

  4. Audio Enhancement for Musicians/Bands

    Thousands of band, chorus, and orchestra directors are teaching music virtually via Microsoft Teams. I would like to have the option to prioritize audio bandwidth, rather than video, and also be given the ability to disable echo cancellation to accommodate music’s broad dynamic ranges. Currently, it is impossible for multiple musicians to unmute themselves and perform together, which means my classes of 50+ students are never going to be able to use this program with more than one person unmuted at a time.
    Lastly, and I'm not sure if this is even possible, but timing for audio seems to be…

  6. 3x3 recording and muting/unmuting participants

    With the new 3x3 screens, when we record it still only records the last 4 active windows. Will this change or can we change it ourselves?

    When we mute participants it would be helpful if we could also unmute them.

  8. Be able to change the color/themes

    I think allowing us to change the color or the app or add themes would make it more personal.
    Just like outlook has themes when you log in online.

  9. Provide a split screen for Chat & Teams screens to be visible at the same time

    Offer the screen to have a chat overlay or transparency to when a Teams file is open.It seems that if a file is open on Teams and the Chat is active, that IM's are only visible by a blinking icon indicator for incoming IM's. Also, the performance is not as optimal when you need to click from chat to teams to check an IM and the Teams file opened closes and needs to be reopened every time

  10. Launch App into chats not feeds

  15. Report Scheduling - Teams User Activity Report

    It appears there may be some other reports that should have this capability as well. But, we strongly desire the ability to SCHEDULE, a DAILY/weekly, report of the Teams User Activity Report to deliver an Excel doc to email. This data will allow us to integrate Microsoft Teams as a larger part of our support operations.

  16. Mute/Unmute - Non- Visual & Delays Conversations

    The Mute/Unmute needs a color code (Red - Mute, Green Active) and should not get hidden during a conversation. A buzzer button for mute/unmute would be productive. Also, if the mute/unmute is continuously visible it prevents accidental sidebar conversations going on the air.

  17. Permitir mover la barra de comandos

    Por favor habiliten la opción de mover la barra de comando según el usuario lo desee. No Ocultarla por que seria dificultar el uso. Pero si moverla libremente. Es muy molesto que siempre se mete la imagen de esta barra justo sobre la información interesante.

  19. Background panel population and ability to choose a background is slow - please speed up

    When I click the button to choose a background option, it can take 5-10 seconds for the all of the backgrounds to be displayed before I can make a choice (and since the background is not currently saved between calls, I bring up the background selection a LOT). I assume Teams is probably dynamically making thumbnails of all the backgrounds to display in the UI. I have added maybe 10 backgrounds of my own, so I've slowed it down even more. Please make it so when the user clicks the "background options" button that the background selection panel shows and…

  20. Have a noise detector

    Hi
    if you use teams for a big class writing an assignment and a disturbing sound comes from somebodys Phone or computer, could you add a functions that finds who’s channel that is making the noise instead of asking students one by one to mute and unmute their sound. It takes forever.
