  1. Add "frame rate control" for "screen sharing" or/and "Video."

    Sometimes the resolution is much more important than the frame rate. So users want to control the framerate using a limited network speed.

  2. Delete "all" future meeting occurrences without removing past occurrences for meetings

    According to the official Microsoft Office support web page, "The only way to remove future occurrences without removing past occurrences in "Meeting in a Series" is to delete each instance of a recurring meeting individually".

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/cancel-all-future-meetings-in-a-series-9eaeee8c-bfe3-46a0-a092-9a2707f3b133

    There should be an option to delete "all" future meeting occurrences without removing past occurrences for meetings in which I am not the organizer.

  3. Allow External Attendees to customize background settings

    Allow External Attendees to customize background settings. Currently, our internal users are the only ones allowed to change Teams Meeting Background.

  4. option to copy/move recorded video from meeting page to teams folders

    Recording of Teams meeting happens in the cloud. Great idea. But to copy or move the recorded video of the meeting from the meeting page to a Microsoft Teams folder I have to download it to my local computer and then again upload.

    An option to copy/move the video from the meetings page to a teams folder all within the cloud would be a great option

  5. Split out the screen when someone is presenting.

    Split out the screen when someone is presenting. This way you can view your chat members on a screen and the topic they are presenting on another.

  6. Add a timer that can record laps or countdown

    Adding a timer to help timekeeping when more than one person is presenting and everyone has the same amount of time to present.
    The total time of the meeting doesnt help with that.

  7. Allow PPT uploading prior for screensharing

    Right now if I want to share a PPT, I have to wait for upload which can, in some cases be lengthy. It would be nice to stage, prior to sharing and would reduce awkward meeting gaps.

  8. Meetings- Meeting Chat- hide control bar when mouse over meeting chat

    During meetings, I like to leave my mouse over the meeting chat so that I can interact quickly without talking over people. However, the control bar is always on top of the presentation when the mouse is over the meeting chat, and this covers some of the presentation. The control bar can come back when my mouse goes over the presentation itself.

  9. Large Gallery Preview, format phone user views to eliminate black borders

    When you are in the new Gallery View, phone views can be optimized if they are placed next to each other to eliminate the black bars for vertical (portrait views).

  11. custom background for Together Mode

    I would like to upload a photo of my office so that meeting participants appear on my company background.

    Solution proposal:
    The user must upload a .jpg or .png file. After uploading, he should point out the places where people are to be plotted in the meeting.

    I will put a real picture of my company's auditorium so that everyone can appear together, but within our company

  12. Can you change the background color or something bigger, bolder and obvious when I am on mute?

    Now that this moved to the upper right corner it isn't obvious when I am muted. Maybe change the background color of the meeting?

  14. Show number of participants who agree or disagree without host making poll (as in Blackboard Collaborate)

    Allow participants to click agree or disagree at any time during a meeting, and show who and the numbers. This facility is available in Blackboard Collaborate (along with being able to see how many participants click happy, sad, slower, confused) and the lack of this is dissuading my organisation from moving to Teams for most meetings.

  15. Audio off button also available after you join a meeting

    Why is the "Audio Off" option only available before you join a meeting. If you are in a meeting you can only turn you video and microfoon off but not your audio.

  16. Remove automatic (Guest) addition from guest meeting participant's Name

    Guest participants in a meeting are already labeled as Guest in the participant's role in a meeting (similar to Organizer, Presenter etc). It doesn't also have to be an automatic extension to their Name as shown.

  18. Open +New meeting in new window

    It has happened a few times where I'm in the middle of adding a new meeting and filling out details, but I receive a message in teams. I end up needing to discard all progress in the meeting if I need to reply within teams.
    If the new meeting creation opened in a new window, I believe it would save a lot of wasted time as opposed to needing to start over again.
