  1. 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.

      • 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!

        • It would be good a way to pin a user as maximized on video call

          When in a conference call, currently is not possible to pin the video to be maximized allowing to focus just in one person.

          • 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.

            • 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…

                • Allow screen-sharing in Teams Web-App

                  Teams Web-App currently does not support screen-sharing or remote session feature like the Teams local application. Please develop this feature in the Teams web-app so that users can share and do remote sharing through a web-browser.

                  • Screen Sharing greyed out for external contacts

                    Looks like there is no way to share my screen with someone outside my organization. The dedicated button is just greyed out.

                    Teams shows the following message in the chat window: "... is outside your organization. Some Teams features won't be available"

                    • Caller Recognition / Outlook Contact

                      While able to browse Outlook contact to dial a number for outgoing calls, incoming call and history will never match an existing Outlook Contact Name but rather present the E164 Number. Not practical at all.

                          • Reorganize the video feeds.

                            It would be beneficial if there was a way to manually reorganize the video feeds in realtime. i.e. Move the video windows around the screen and reorder them as we wish, when we wish.

                              • Enable Recording of PSTN Calls

                                This option should be built-in, yet I haven't seen it in SfB or Teams. In many states in the US, call recording requires single-party consent. In other words, (where I live) if I'm on a call and want to record the call for my own purposes, I am legally allowed to do so without notifying the other parties on the line.

                                I would like to be able to do this and it would be extremely useful to have built-in, along with a checkbox to auto-record all calls. For my organization's purposes, it would allow us to review how calls team…

                                  • Webcam quality is very low

                                    I have a full HD (1080p) webcam which hasn't the same quality in video call than with Skype for Business. We also have fiber optic Internet connection so it's not the cause of the poor image.

                                    It happened on many different computers so I guess it's an issue from Teams.

                                    Question: can you make the video quality much higher?

                                    • 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.

                                      • Indicator if talking on Mute

                                        Mute option is very helpful when we don't want to be heard and prevent and disturbance in ongoing conversation however at times we un-knowingly forget to un-mute before talking on call or in P2P call. It would be helpful if we have indicator which alerts speaker if talking on Mute.

                                        • Need a spam filter for calls

                                          Please add the ability to have a call spam filter like outlook where we could click on the call history and have the option to always send the call to voicemail or to block a caller.
