  3. notification throttle

    Add the ability to throttle a notification. I would like the ability to get a single notification and then not get subsequent notifications unless I open and check teams or X time has passed.

  4. Set incoming ringtones per call queue

    Since multiple call queues may be directed to the same person it would be great to be able to set unique ringtones per call queue so that the receptionist can easily identify who is calling without having to look at the notification toast. This would allow them to make the appropriate greeting when using a headset when stepping away from their desk.

  5. Easier way to turn off availability notifications

    The only way to turn off user availability notifications currently is to go to the side panel. It does not appear you can turn them off from the top panel. So, if you had turned on notifications but haven't chatted with them for a month, good luck scrolling through your chats quickly.

  7. Open Windowed Chat from Notification

    Now that windowed chat is enabled (thank you!!!), provide the option to open chats in their own window from the notification instead of in the main teams interface. If the thread is already open in a window, on click it could focus on the minimized window. That way if I'm working on a file in teams, clicking an incoming chat wouldn't navigate me away from it.

  8. Ability to have a shared Team identity for chat

    I run a HelpDesk and it would be great to have the ability for users to use Teams to chat with a "HelpDesk" ID that could be responded to by support personnel.
    We use a shared mailbox at present and users can find the mailbox in Teams and send a chat message to it, but there's no way to respond in Teams

  9. Full width chat

    On desktop, chat takes up only the center of available field. Woiuld be much better use of space, if the chat was full width

  10. Search within each channel

    Search option within each channel just like it's there on Yammer. Within each group you have a separate search option

  12. Dual-monitor screen sharing

    So Microsoft is getting rid of Skype for business, which has the option to share multiple screens at once, but they don't have that capability on Microsoft teams. I don't know why this hasn't garnered more attention, but a lot of businesses have agents with dual screens, so this needs to be added.

    They should also make it so you don't have to close the screen share session and open a new one to switch which screen you are sharing, it should just be something that can be switched while in the same screen-share session.

  13. Resolved- Reply to Specific Message on MS Teams

    Currently 'Reply to Specific Message on MS Teams' option is available only for Mobile platform.

    Workaround to do it on Desktop:


    1. Copy the content you want to reply to.

    2. Go to chat box. Press 'Shift+period' together and release to see a blue box. Paste the copied message inside your blue box.

    3. Then press 'Enter twice' and write your message and send :)

  14. Chats - quote reply and other enabled on right click

    It would be very beneficial if there is a right-click features (like Quote, Forward primarily) enabled on Chats. This drives easy and fast-paced conversations within people.

  16. Desktop Teams Mac and Windows Multi Tenant Login

    It is absurd seeing that the IOS version of Teams allows being logged in to multiple office 365 tenants while the Mac and Windows desktop application do not provide this feature. Please fix it as soon as possible!

  18. Have multiple windows concurrently (side by side if needed)

    Currently there is no way( or at least it is not obvious) to have multiple windows. For instance in the file I would like to be able to see different folders at the same time.

  19. Provide Meeting Buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] buttons as Toolbar buttons during Meetings

    When conducting meetings, the meeting buttons window is useful but obstructing the presentation area. To fix this, can we introduce a Toolbar (Like Windows Media Player in olden windows) that has the meeting buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] during the call. This helps to manage calls, mic without having to restore the meeting snippet.

  20. You should be able to move the videos to the top of the screen. Most PCs have the camera at the top so this will help with eye contact

    you should be able to move the videos to the top of the screen. Most PCs and laptops have the camera at the top so having the videos near the camera helps with eye contact.
