  1. Complete Skype for Business Integration into Teams

    Honestly, this is a tall order due to the fact that Teams was not launched this way in the first place, but my real world experience, and feedback from the field, is that having Skype-for-Business-like functions in Teams (chat/Presence/etc) be separate from Skype for Business itself is not only confusing for many users, but inhibits adoption. Users want to consolidate the number of apps they use, not increase it. I personally find this to be true.

    Teams is an incredible tool with so much potential, but living and breathing in Skype for Business, like so many of us do, Teams…

    • Recording of video meetings

      What about if video meetings could be recorded for later view, and what about if with speech to text technology we can have meeting notes of what we talked in the meeting.

      • Multiple Screen Sharing Option

        Allow multiple people to share their screen at one time, similar to how hangout does it.

        • Skype integration

          It would be nice to integrate public Skype (not Skype for Business) into Teams. I am able to chat with Skype for business users within my organization but when working with external clients I still have to go back to public Skype. If I could even just simply chat and call with Skype users as well that would allow me to use Teams as my sole communication platform.

            Hi everyone, it looks like this got put as “declined” — I actually have a best practice on my team to NEVER put anything as declined (you’ll see some older tickets have that, that was before my time, folks). So I’m sorry this got slipped through — its not a decline, for the very reason that Mark points out below.

            Also special thanks to Andreas for seeing the activity on this closed item and bringing it to my attention.

            And thank you to all of YOU for helping us makes Teams better!

            Sincerely,
            Suphatra

          • Allow meeting participants to mute each other or mute all

            This is a feature of Google Hangouts we use all the time. When someone is in a noisy environment, has a mic/speaker setup that causing feedback, or is banging on their keyboard, they don't always realize it, and it's very useful for someone else to be able to mute the participant who is causing a disruptive amount of noise but not speaking.

            • While in a call, add another person to the call

              While in a call, you should be able to add another person (or more than one) to the call, to instantly create a group call. Similar as in Skype by clicking the "+" button.

              • Show video for all people in Video meeting

                Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

                This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

                  • Let me see clicks of callee when presenting via screen sharing

                    The idea is taken from TeamViewer, where you are able to show to presenter where you clicked on the shared screen. This feature is really usefull, when someone tries to explain something to presenter (or to other people when the call is for more people) and the presenter cannot see/understand what he's really thinks.

                    Usually, when we have our skype meetings, we use TeamViewer for screen sharing, because we can easily show what part of code is problematic by click on the shared screen. When we click on it then cursor with name of the person who clicked is shown.

                      • Support Skype Video Call

                        Most of the DEVs / Tech use the Teams, but we have a lot of users outside of technology that use only Skype. If Teams can video chat with Skype users, that would be fantastic as it would then require me to have less apps (i.e. Only Teams installed would be preferred)

                          • Allow the camera to be disabled by default

                            In my environment, we don't do a whole lot of video conferencing. We do, however, do a whole lot of screen-sharing. Can you please add the ability to disable the camera by default? That way you don't have to scramble to disable it every time you share screens.

                                Should have to opt IN to turning on video for a team call. It seems to be this way (off by default) for a video in CHAT, just not in a TEAM call.

                                • Notification when a team call starts

                                  When someone calls you from a chat it's very obvious, you get a little pop up window which notifies you.

                                  However when someone starts a meeting within a team it's far less obvious - could we have the same sort of banner/notification as a chat call?

                                  • Teams doesn't recognise new audio devices being plugged in

                                    There is a bug that USB headsets are not recognised if they are plugged in after Teams has started. The list of audio devices doesn't change even once the OS has recognised the headset and it is working, so there is no audio in a call. The only way to get Teams to recognise it and work with it is to quit out and restart the program, then it works fine.

                                      Communicate with skype members and share screen to avoid using two platforms.

                                      • Joining a meeting should auto-mute your microphone!

                                        Joining a meeting does not auto-mute your microphone!

                                        We are attempting to use MS Team's meeting for the first time since various launch issues were fixed.

                                        For all of us, the meeting auto-connected our audio and microphones and our mic's were not muted. This is a problem when you have grown accustomed to Skype for Business as Skype auto connects, but does so while muting your own microphone. Huge difference and could cause someone to overhear something they shouldn't have.

                                        • Add the ability to call the group within a meeting in the Meetings tab

                                          We have the list of attendees listed under each meeting. Add the ability to start a call with this group. Seems odd that this is missing.
