  1. Better at a glance status "in a call" icon

    At the moment the status icon for "in a call" is the same as just busy. It would be great to pop a little phone icon in the red dot to better distinguish whether a person is on a call rather than just busy.

  2. Upload/change background images in the app without having to be on a video call.

    Allow users to upload/add/change background images without having to be on a video call in the app. Currently, the only way to update your background in the app is while you are on an actual video call. Otherwise you have to go through a ridiculous number of steps to save it so you can access the image in teams. Also, I want to try out background images before selecting them for a meeting. Sometimes the image resolution is not great or my head blends in with the background too much, but I cannot tell that until I am actively using…

  3. Multiple Monitor Display

    Identify whether MS Teams users have multiple monitors. If so, provide a different view that utilizes both screens. I.e call on 1 screen and chat on another or have more people visible (18 not 9)

  5. Reduce volume of audio of other source playing (Amazon music, etc.) when joining a call; Skype did that

    Reduce volume of the audio of another source playing (Amazon music, etc.) when joining a call; Skype did that. If the music control is on some tab of some browser window buried amongst others, it can be difficult to find before having to answer. If the volume is substantially reduced, I can answer the call then leisurely find the audio source control if needed.

  6. While in meeting AND you receive a chat message, don't minimise meeting

    Prioritise meeting or perhaps have a separate window dedicated to chat that protects the size of the meeting

  7. Improve macOS Support


    1. Notifications should come through the normal macOS Notifications system.


    2. Emoji should use native macOS emoji.

  8. See more / Always expand conversations

    For the love of god, please stop hiding the conversations!

    Reading conversations is tedious because it requires multiple times pressing the "See More" button and expanding the "x Replies from.." buttons to actually read what is said.

    Scrolling to scan and navigate conversations works great. Lets just scroll and stop hiding things.

    At minimum give the user an option to turn off all the collapsing functions (See more, x Replies from) so that everything is shown all the time.

    For me this is the absolute #1 reason why I would dump Teams for Slack.

  9. Can we have a way of students using Class Note Book to submit their Notebook to an assignment - better yet just some pages

    So an assignment is set and the student adds a page to their Class notebook - but I want to mark that page/pages and provide feedback through the assignent system so that I can record a grade.

  10. Assignments Tab

    Upon entering the dedicated assignments tab, I must choose which team's assignments I would like to look at. It makes no sense that I have to select one and then click next when I'm not allowed to select more than one, either allow the option to select multiple teams or just make it one click

    As an alternative to the above, I would prefer if the assignments tab by default just showed all my assignments from all my classes together with the option narrowing them down through some sort of a filter, a similar feature for the feed would be…

  12. Give a chat the option to be a floating/pop-out window so I can stay connected while navigating

    Give a chat the option to be a floating/pop-out window so I can stay connected while navigating.
    particularly if a chat is referencing something that was shared in a Team.

    ■Description(内容):
    移動ユーザー プロファイルを利用環境下では、各ユーザーでアプリケーションをインストールをする必要がなく Microsoft Teams を利用することが可能になる Microsoft Teams ブラウザー版を利用することで、サーバーの記憶域をより最適化して使うことができます。
    しかしながら現在の Microsoft Teams ブラウザー版では、アプリケーション版では利用可能な "デバイスから通信等のテスト" や "制御を渡す" など一部機能が実装されていません。
    このため、ブラウザー版 Microsoft Teams でアプリケーション版と全く同じ機能が利用できるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。​
    In environments that use roaming user profiles, there is no need to each user to install the application, and Microsoft Teams can be used by using the browser version of Microsoft Teams which optimizes the storage space of the server in a more effective way.
    However currently some features in the application…

  14. Automatic Dark Theme

    Would be great to see an automatic dark theme that can be maintained by a schedule. I usually always turn dark theme on in the evenings, just easier on the eyes!

  15. Adjust Position of Webcams on Screen

    Move web cam feeds around when someone is screen sharing. My webcam is at the top of my monitor, when others talk I have to look down at their picture at the bottom, meaning they see the top of my head not my eyes. Would be nice to position top, bottom or the side by choice.

  17. Teams and channel navigation could be improved

    We have many Teams in our organisation and as such we apply our notifications to Teams and channels accordingly and work off our "Activity" tab.
    When a post appears in the "activity" tab you click it and get taken to the correct channel. However, there is no way back from this screen (Activity feed on left, ruight hand panel = channel conversations) to the main Team/General channel/Team list of channels.

    You have to click "Teams" in the tabbed interface, find the team and then click into the other channels.

    Previously you could breadcrumb to the Team, from the channel's conversation:…

  18. Why is there a volume slider for a live event but not for a regular conference call?

    Why isn't there a volume slider at the bottom of a conference call, just like there is for a live event. Why don't we have this option?

    The volume on my computer is set to the level I would listen to a song I like, not to the level I would normally listen to an audio voice. As such, I use the volume slider in apps to raise/lower the volume as needed.

    I don't understand why this feature isn't present in an easy-to-access way for Teams conference calls.

  20. Pop out any section of Teams

    Have parts of MS teams be able to pop out of Teams. This way you can work on one part of teams and you could have multiple chats going at the same time. This would be very much like being able to pop out emails from outlook and then go to tasks or calendar and be able to see everything at the same time.
