  1. RDP remote microphone support should be added

    Remote RDP thin clients with a microphone should be able to use Teams remotely. At present, I am told that Teams does not have a microphone whilst connect via RDP session, with both mic and speaker enabled on the client.

  2. MS Teams Video conferencing enhancement

    It would be great if microsoft can include the functionality enhancement to have a split screen when doing a video presentation. Split on the presenter and the document. Not just have the presenter video shoot to the bottom right in a small screen and have the document take up the whole screen

  3. 3rd Party Phone Integration

    We recently went with a 3rd party VoIP provider for voice. They have federation into Skpe so that we can use Skype with their service and they also have a soft client for Calls, Chat, etc. (They don't do video without a meeting). I want to utilize voice calling via teams with our 3rd party provider. My vision would be that caller ID, customer screen pops (salesforce integration), voice mails, texts, fax and all would be integrated into a single app. I also guarantee that if you get this working both ways we will convert to Microsoft PSTN if pricing…

  4. Better support for video/phone calls in conference rooms

    I need an easy way to pull up a video/phone call in a conference room without potentially exposing private messages, meetings, etc. This could be a different account, or a login with an option to enter teams with a limited "conference" based feature set. A "do not disturb" feature would work, but not completely disable private sections.

  5. Teams status integration of Avaya / Plantronics Hub so when you're in a call your status automatically changes to 'in a call'.

    The Avaya & Teams integration doesn't work like Skype for Business & Avaya.

    I've opened a case with Microsoft support and found out that the Skype for Business uses SIP protocol but Teams uses HTTPS protocol for presence which results in this kind of behavior.

    They say it's the by-design behavior for Microsoft Teams for now. And suggested that a uservoice be raised about this.

    This is a major inconvenience for our contact center that relies on the status information in Teams.

  6. Integrate OneNote with Teams so you can take/use notes in a meeting - or have a compact Teams video in OneNote

    I prepare meetings in OneNote, and take meeting notes on it. But there doesn't seem a way to easily use/take notes in OneNote during a Teams video call. Can it be integrated so either a tab from your OneNote can be brought up in Teams for you to write in as you participate, or the Teams video call video can be visible in OneNote. Or there can be a floating Teams video window which you can see while using OneNote.

  7. Allow self view video during calls to be turned off

    I find the self view window during calls very distracting - I may be narcissistic, but I end up looking at my own image as much as that of the other callers. Can we set up a facility to turn this off once you've made sure you're correctly centered in the video camera?

  8. group video call + ipad

    Chat and call functions have been disabled for students in my district, for safety reasons. On a computer, I can easily call a student by creating a private channel for them, and using the small video icon beneath the message bar. BUT there is no such icon on an iPad! Why not? We really need this!

  9. Automatically log calls/video calls into user calendar

    Include an option for a user to enable that teams automatically logs calendar entries for each phone call/video call that the user completes through teams.

    i.e. when I end a video call with Jane Brown, teams will automatically create a calendar appt titled "Video Call with Jane Brown" with the start time and finish time from the call.

  13. Microsoft Teams: also let computer speaker ring when headset connected

    Hi!

    Incoming calls ring only on the Headset but not on PC speaker, as you can configure in Skype for Busines.
    We want to get this option back for our users...

    Bye
    André

  14. When on a call, your status should be marked as 'on a call' and all incoming should be directed to voicemail.

  15. Desktop and Mobile Client Pairing with Teams phone device

    Similar to BTOE but no third party software to install.
    The ability to choose and control the Teams phone device for inbound calls, outbound calls, and meetings from the desktop or mobile client based on logged in phone device.
    Also allow switching the audio between devices and clients without having to transfer the call.

  17. Call Controls Within Teams

    Would like to be able to use my headset to operate the call controls within the meeting as Skype does. Mute, End Call, Make call, etc. all must be done within the Teams application.

  18. Support for voice route translation rules in Direct Routing

    Direct Routing in Teams works almost exactly the same as in Skype for Business on-premises except there is no support for trunk translation rules. This means that if you have to do any manipulation of numbers before sending to the PSTN, you have to do it at the PSTN gateway level. This probably isn't possible if you are using a service provider for Direct Routing.

    It would be useful to have this feature added (maybe to the CsOnlineVoiceRoute cmdlet ) to give more flexibility when communicating with third party PSTN providers.

  19. Allow multiple PSTN numbers to be assigned to one user

    For Office 365 phone system and teams to really start replacing PBX deployments it needs to add some missing features. One of the easy (hopefully) ones is to allow a user to have multiple lines associated with them such as region specific direct dial numbers. At present you can only associate one number.

  20. Team Calls

    As a user, I would like to be able to initiate a team call that any member of that team can join or leave at any time so that team meetings can be easier to start - even if someone is late.

    We are using MS Teams for video/voice call meetings with team members all over the country. It would be nice for a user that wasn't available when the call started to join in once they were available. Some indication that a team call was in progress and a way to join it. Currently, there are not calls allowed…
