  1. Add support for NVENC (NVidia), QuickSync (Intel), and VCE (AMD). (Hardware Video Encoding)

    Most video cards now days support Hardware Video encoders which can substantially reduce the load to do video encoding while providing acceptable output.

    I'm in video chat for most of my 8 hour work day and Teams is always the single highest utilization because of the video. Switching to hardware encoding would significantly reduce that.

    It will be better to make automatically change the bitrate of video during meeting to make a video call without freezing on weak internet connection. As I know Zoom do this automatically.

  7. Battery usage on Windows 10

    There are many comments and ideas about battery usage on IOS and Android but I've noticed that the battery usage on my laptop has increased somewhat.

    When I go to Start > Settings > System > Battery > 'See which apps are affecting your battery life' and change period to 1 week i can see that Microsoft Teams is using 31% of battery. Second place is Outlook with 14% so its definitely an issue.

    Interestingly, i use Outlook all day, every day heavily and its only using that much battery. Teams is always in my sys stray and i rarely…

  10. DELETE BUTTONS PLEASE!!!

    Please make a delete function for chat features and alerts. This is the worst design I have ever seen. Once you are done with a conversation or addressed items in your activity/alerts you should be able to delete them. This will make the platform be more user-friendly and have a cleaner design. The hide conversations feature isn't practical since the conversations keep coming up.

  11. Displaying the time you spoke in a call/ meeting vs others

    this is more of a stats type of thing - to have a summary of the meeting/ call telling you how much did you spoke vs the others.

  12. BURGESS UI APP

    Claims are now required to utilize Burgess UI (web based app) to process most MA claims (INPT Acute Care, ESRD, etc) but we have to do this manually and these claims can be upward to 100-200 lines. Is there a way that the Burgess UI app can be added to SUE (much like ECHS, IOP, etc) so that the programs to speak to each other? This will save our productivity.. if you check the stats for the next two weeks you will be able to see the significant drop. Thank you for your consideration

  13. Only show video for the person who talks

    To save broadband with it could be nice if there was a feature that turned the webcam on and off when you talk/don't talk.

  15. Please stabalize the delete operation of team members from Teams admin center

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams 管理センターからチームメンバーを削除する際の動作の安定性向上希望
    Please stabalize the delete operation of team members from Teams admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    Teams 管理センターから、チームメンバーを削除する際に、GUI でメンバーや所有者の役割変更を実施した後に、削除の動作を実施しようとすると、削除できる場合と、できない場合の動作に一貫性がなく、不安定な動きとなっている様子がみられる。
    複数テナント、複数ブラウザーで動作を確認したが、いずれも動作に一貫性がなく、動作として不安定にみられるため、GUI で役割変更を適用した場合でも、削除可否について動作が統一されるよう安定性の向上を含め、機能改善を要望します。​
    When deleting team members from Teams admin center after changing the roles for members and owners using the GUI, sometimes the deletion happens and sometimes it does not happen.
    I checked this problem using multiple tenants and on multiple browsers, and there was no consistency at all and the delete operation ended up being very unstable. So please make it so that the delete operation result will be standardised as deletable or non deletable after changing…

  17. Grading Quizzes/Tests

    Schoology allows you to input questions and provide answers. It allows you to determine point value and after students take the quiz or test, it is automatically recorded in the grade book. Teachers have the option to allow students to see there response, see there responses with correct answers, or not see their submissions. Teacher has the ability to let kids take quiz or exam once, twice... or unlimited times and determine value by last score, highest score, etc. I wish you could do this because I use Schoology and OneNote and I could switch to OneNote and Teams and…
