  1. Would like to have a Teams Soft Phone

    I hate Jabber as a chat agent, and the Skype underneath, already takes care of the screen sharing, and team collaboration via chat. However, it makes for a pretty good soft phone, but I would love it if Microsoft could partner with Cisco, or something be done to add a Soft Phone to the Teams ecosystem.

    • Call my phone

      Have the audio conferencing call my desk phone instead of having to call into a phone number and use a pin. Much better when not using a headset.

      • Add the ability to easily make a existing scheduled meeting a Teams Video meeting (Skype meeting).

        I have lots of existing scheduled meetings. It would be nice to easily add a video option when needed to existing meetings. I shouldn't have to recreate the meeting

        • remote control uac

          We're using Teams for chat and video meetings, but would like to use the screen sharing and remote control for troubleshooting and suppport requests. However, Windows does not pass UAC prompts through the Teams screen sharing.

          • Video when minimized

            If you minimize the client in a video conference, it would be great if it would bring up a small video window on top... similar to what Skype For Business when it is minimized and you are in a video call.

            • Being able to focus and enlarge a camera/confrence room video stream

              When there is a video stream from a camera it's shared with other non camera feeds (user avatars). I'm able to select a "Screen Share" stream and make it full screen; I wish I could do the same with a conference room feed / camera feed and not have the main camera feed cut off by other users' avatars without a camera.

              This would also solve issues with the video feed being cut-off.

              • Receive inbound calls in Teams via Calling Plan

                Currently, it appears that Teams ignores PSTN calls except if outbound, sending calls directly to voicemail unless Skype is open. In order to migrate our organization to Teams, we need to have PSTN calling fully operational in Teams.

                • Teams Video needs more features

                  The video feature set doesn't support collaboration.

                  My team needs:
                  1. Option for granting remote control.
                  2. Integrated whiteboard.
                  3. Flexible screen sharing and video, i.e. keep together or split on separate screens.

                  • Incoming call popup is does not display over other open windows

                    When Teams is minimized to activity tray (lower right) the popup for an incoming call will place itself behind other windows I have open such as browsers etc.

                    • Teams on phone does not use Bluetooth or Android auto

                      To have teams intergrate into your car. It could be low level like just have Bluetooth audio calls over bt in car. Or go high level and intergrate it with Android Auto or Apple car play. Just like Google does with hangouts. As we try to business still while traveling in ours cars.

                      • Persistent call controls on active calls

                        In Teams Calls while on an active voice call, the call controls disappear from view. Can you add a Setting to make the call controls persistent for active calls?

                        This is particularly a problem after opening the Dialer, which makes it so that when you hover over the teams window, the call controls do not re-appear. You must close the Dialer before you are able to successfully end a call.

                        If you cannot add an option to make call controls persistent, can you add in the call controls to the Dialer area?

                            Today, if I am in a 1:1 phone call, I can not add another person, ad hoc, to the call. There should be a + symbol type icon to add another person.

                              Teams should work with wireless bluetooth headsets. Why work with a select few such as Plantronics or Jabra. I have a brand new Beats 3 and it is useless with this product. Supposedly it has the newest chip for connecting seamlessly with products.
                              Thanks,

                                  • Meet Now Without Video. Video On/Off User Setting.

                                    In a conversation or team channel, you cannot "Meet Now" with video defaulted to OFF. If you set it for yourself, yours will not be started. But ANY other person that joins the conversation meeting will have their video turned on without an option to join without it on. This discourages team members from joining calls as they don't want to share video. You should also have a user setting to enable or disable video by default so they don't have to choose to disable video each time they join a meeting. Thanks!

                                    • Allow camera detection on Chromebooks

                                      Web-based teams on Chromebook seems to work great! The one thing it is missing is the ability to engage in a video chat. When i click on the video camera link in Teams, I am taken to a page prompting me to give access to the Mic and Camera. Unfortunately, the method that is being used does not interact with Chrome OS properly so you cant allow access to the camera.

                                      • Switch active call to Mobile phone

                                        Our customer should have a function to switch an active call from the computer teams client to a mobile team client.

                                        for example:
                                        You answer a call at the PC/teamsclient and want to leave your desk and continue the call with your mobile phone/Teamsclient.

                                        Normal call forwarding is not really useful in this case. It would be nice if there was something like a "Switch-Button".

                                        • Video Meeting option for locking screen for video recording

                                          Since Teams works so easily with Microsoft Stream to record meetings, my team has hosted training sessions where we have a webcam pointed on a presenter in front of a whiteboard. The output from these recordings isn't ideal because the UI splits the call into four windows.

                                          It would be great if there were an option under the ellipsis menu to enable "Presenter Mode" (perhaps use a different name to avoid confusion with the PPT feature) where the UI locks to the single user who has activated Presenter Mode in the same way that a screenshare locks the UI to…
