  1. 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?

  2. More cameras viewable in video calls

    When on video calls, currently you can only see 4 people's video at one time. It would be great to add intuitive capture that adds more cameras to the main screen where all cameras are seen during a video call.

  3. Video Calling and changing video sizes of specific call participant for better visbility

    Video Calling and changing video sizes of specific call participant for better visbility:
    Currently, when we are in call of more than two people on Windows laptop, for example, three people (Person A, Person B and myself), the call screen splits into two windows. But I want to focus on the video which Person B is showing, but this is visible only on one half of he screen. It is at the moment not possible to select a particular person's video and make it full screen or change the dimension of the video layout.

  6. direct routing - let PSTN do a PSTN call via SIP trunk

    When you make a PSTN call to a user in the same tenant - the call is routed internally within Teams.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/what-is-phone-system-in-office-365

    Calls between users in your organization are handled internally within Phone System, and never go to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). This applies to calls between users in your organization located in different geographical areas, removing long-distance costs on these internal calls.

    It should be possible to force that when a users chooses the PSTN number, the call goes via direct routing SIP trunk.

    This would give the following advanteages:

  7. Music on hold for an Auto Attendant - (While call is redirecting to user)

    We need music on hold directly within an auto attendant, not only a call queue.

    The problem is, when a call is received in an auto attendant, and you setup a redirect to a user, the caller hears silence while it's ringing to the redirected user.

    If you use a call queue (just to get music on hold), you don't have the calling number caller ID displayed, instead it shows the name of the resource account assigned to the call queue instead...

    Come on... just do it!

    You're so close to solving 95% of most businesses simply call answering needs....…

  8. New window for calls

    When answering a call or making a call, there should be a new window created. I feel like having a new window when in a call/ video chat would be very beneficial. There have been numerous times where I enter a Team call and then I have to go back to where I was in Teams to chat with others not in the call, read remarks sent from chat, look at documents sent during the call into the chat. And much more. I feel like it would much cleaner if Calls and Video would be moved to a new window,…

  9. Allow recording with only yourself or one other on a chat or meeting

    Currently the record button is only presented when there is a minimum of 3 participants in a call or meeting, which is an unnecessary limitation.

    There are situations where you want to record something by yourself for presentation later, or when only one other participant in a call/meeting.

    Allow recording of the session in both of the following cases:
    - When on a meeting but no one else joins
    - When on a call or meeting with only two participants

    Thanks

  10. Chat calling: Show more than one number

    When you click on the "Call-Button" in a teams chat, only the mobile number and Teams to Teams call are displayed.

    It would be great if you could also see existing Corpnumbers (Officenumbers) that are synchronized with the Azure AD.

  11. Feature Request Allow supported phones (Polycom VVX etc) to pickup a call from a call queue.

    I would like to be able to answer telephone calls coming from our main business number.

    This would be an amazing feature.

    Scenario
    A call is routed through AA, Call Queue and rings a users phone (say a VVX 600 polycom supported phone). When picked up currently it goes dead and doesn't connect. It would be awesome if this made the connection and we can answer on this phone.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Polycom-vvx-500-unable-to-answer-call-queue-calls-in-Teams-only/td-p/220572

    Another feature would be to have some kind of information fed back to users as to when features are going to be implemented regarding Phones within Teams. Lets call it…

  13. 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

  14. Allow for users to set their own caller ID

    As we move to adding phone calling from within Teams, we would like for our users to set their caller ID themselves within the Settings.

    This will avoid any users logging support tickets requesting for a caller ID to be set.

  15. Call should be picked up on multiple device

    When I open Team on desktop (Mac), if someone calls me, the call can only be picked up on the desktop. There’s no notification nor the ability to pick up or join the call on my iPhone.

  16. Enable rewind in voicemail

    I love being able to get my voicemail in Teams, it even has voice to text transcriptions. Please tweak it though so when playing a voicemail you can rewind/scrub the audio recording. You can pause it but have to restart it if you want to hear some over.

  17. Integrate Teams with Zoom.US

    Zoom is an excellent replacement for WebEx, maybe even the best right now. Slack allows us to force Zoom.us to be configured as the audio call, video call and screen sharing interface.

    Zoom.us is fast to launch, so it makes it ideal for audio calls, video calls and screensharing.

    I'd suggest Teams allow admins to config to force use of calls with Zoom.

    PS. WebEx VP Engineering started a company called Zoom, and it's really good (and inexpensive too).

  18. Provide call controls while in a Teams meeting

    While using the Teams client on Windows10 for a scheduled meeting, I clicked on the Activity tab and lost all call controls. I had to click back on the meetings tab and then on the Join button again in order to hang up the call.

    Could you please provide functionality similar to SfB, where the ongoing call pops out from the client and is always available for the caller to mute, hang up, etc.?

  20. Pop out chat improvements

    Add the call, video call and screen share buttons to a pop out chat window. If i want to escalate a IM to a call i have to go back to the main Teams window, this isn't an option from the pop out chat.
