      • Show video for all people in Video meeting

        Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

        This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

        • Start a meeting with the mic muted, like Skype and Lync do

          When joining a meeting, the video and mic should be turned off by default and need to be turned on by the user either per session or globally via settings. This is the default behavior for both Skype for Business and Lync 2013 (as I recall).

          • Speech to text meeting notes

            • It's distracting to get a chat message when a meeting has started or ended

              This should be a notification option that you can turn off. Currently you see a chat item for your attention. You go to it only to see that the meeting you just started, or just ended, started or ended. You already know that, and the notification is just wasting your time.

              • Save audio / video devices

                On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

                • Non Persistent VDI

                  Support for Non-Persistent VDI. Currently Teams desktop App installs in the user App folder this means it can't be placed on the base image of non persistent VDI environments.

                  Are there any plans to provide an alternative install for VDI. Currently we are installing Teams at login for VDI users as a work around.

                  • Allow the camera to be disabled by default

                    In my environment, we don't do a whole lot of video conferencing. We do, however, do a whole lot of screen-sharing. Can you please add the ability to disable the camera by default? That way you don't have to scramble to disable it every time you share screens.

                    • Let me see clicks of callee when presenting via screen sharing

                      The idea is taken from TeamViewer, where you are able to show to presenter where you clicked on the shared screen. This feature is really usefull, when someone tries to explain something to presenter (or to other people when the call is for more people) and the presenter cannot see/understand what he's really thinks.

                      Usually, when we have our skype meetings, we use TeamViewer for screen sharing, because we can easily show what part of code is problematic by click on the shared screen. When we click on it then cursor with name of the person who clicked is shown.

                      • Improve the customization of which video is displayed during a group video meeting.

                        During video calls, allow us to click on a person to force their video to take up the whole window (Including one's own camera!). Especially since some people do not turn on their video, their icon should not take up a portion of the screen that could be used to enlarge an active video broadcast. Thank you!!

                          • Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

                            Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

                            I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

                            • Support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) & Citrix XenApp

                              RDS/Citrix XenApp support is *not* listed in the Teams Deployment Advisor or the Administrator Settings page (links below). This request is to add support for these scenarios since RDS/XenApp is very common in healthcare as well as other verticals as well as for remote access.

                                • Join Meeting Button

                                  When I schedule a meeting as a Skype Meeting it adds a "Join Meeting" button to the Outlook reminder that pops up. That button does not exist when I schedule a Teams Meeting. It should.

                                  Without that button I have to double click to go into the calendar item, locate the hyperlink to "Join Teams Meeting", click that, which opens my web browser, and then the web browser tries to launch the Teams app, but first asks me for confirmation, which requires another click. You've added several layers of unnecessary clicks which impede my ability to join a meeting.

                                  Just…

                                  • When recording a meeting, record the screen that is being shared.

                                    We just recorded a meeting for our team. No one used their cameras, but we were all watching someone's screen being shared to follow along with the code example. The recorded meeting only shows the icons of folks on the team, it does not show the screen we were all watching.

                                    • Share pointer while screen sharing

                                      TeamViewer screen sharing has a nice feature to share pointer. So when other meeting participants wants to show the presenter something on screen, the presenter can see where they pointing. It's really useful feature.

                                      • video meeting participant layout

                                        Currently each participant in a meeting gets equal layout space wether the camera is on or off. If one participant is presenting using the Camera, I want to see that one camera instead of a slice of everyones camera equally. I should be able to change the layout so I only see the image of a selected participant or the image of the person currently talking.

                                        • Adjust video panes

                                          Need to be able to move video panes and reorganize them on the screen. I.e. if 4 people are in a video call, two will appear in roughly square panes on one side, and another will be in an elongated pane on the left. The left pane is in portrait and we cannot see the group and if this pane were on top, it would be landscape oriented. I mean, just have an option to make it like google hangouts where I can click who to focus on or it auto-senses based on who's talking.
