  1. Automatically turn on live captions

    It gets tiring having to turn on captions every time I start a meeting. It would be great if I can specify to always turn on captions.

  2. Allow meeting organizers to view the lobby in alphabetical or chronological order

    Currently, meeting lobbies show those waiting in alphabetical order, making it easy to find a particular person. Adding the option to view the lobby in chronological order would allow organizers to admit people in the order in which they queued up.

    Use case: professor's online office hours. Rather than making set timeslots with Bookings, a professor could offer online office hours, admitting each student in the order that they arrived in the lobby. If two students are working together, the first can tell the prof the name of the second so that the prof could switch to alpha mode to…

  4. together mode

    When using Together Mode it would be helpful if the active speaker could be highlighted in some way. When someone is speaking its hard to find the person in the gallery seating.

  6. Add reations on MS Teams call/meeting

    Please a reaction function with emojis to be used during a call or meeting when some exciting thing is said/shared, without interrupting the speaker. Basically the same that happens on a chat where we can do like/love/smile. These reactions (can be applause) are to be shown live for everyone (or just for the speaker). This way the speaker can sense the user interest on the topics, the same way the user can feedback the speaker anytime.

  8. whilst supervising an exam for example, want to turn off video gallery mode for participants but leave feed on for Teacher

    Teacher schedules scored-assessment exam
    all students are offsite
    students join meeting in gallery mode
    intros are made
    exam starts
    teacher disables the gallery video feed for all students so they can concentrate and not copy but leaves it on to be able to supervise remotely

  11. Change the background to white ( from black) for live call/screenshare meeting window

    The new window for meetings has black theme and I m struggling to figure out who is speak due to the all black theme, when someone speaks, the name of the person gets "bold", but with all black theme, its very difficult to spot who is speaking because "bold" is not something that is noticeable.

  12. Have the Teams Meeting details appear at the top of the invite

    When an email is used as the basis for creating a new meeting in Outlook and the invite is created, when I make it a Teams meeting, the Teams Meeting details are placed at the bottom of the message. Is it possible to add a configuration that it is always inserted at the top of the meeting message?

  15. adding External Users to a meeting in DeepLink

    Adding external users to the meeting via Deep Link works great on mobile. But when clicking the link on desktop, external users are not on the attendees.

    example:
    msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/meeting/new?subject=Meeting&attendees=1@company.com,2@company.com,3@gmail.com

    the last one missed in attendees

  17. Prevent Screen Recording by 3rd party apps and screen capture (screenshot)

    Students are recording my lectures and distributing to others. It will be very helpful if screen recording by 3rd party apps can be stopped.
    Thanking you,
    With warm regards,

  18. Move Mute/UnMute icon far way from Leave icon. In addition, please support quick unmute option, similar to Zoom "Space Bar" option

    Move Mute/UnMute icon far way from Leave icon. By mistake I keep hitting "Red" Leave icon instead of mute/ unmute

    In addition, please support quick unmute option, similar to Zoom "Space Bar" option, its so easy - 1) hold space bar (unmutes) 2) speak 3) Release Space bar (mutes back)

  19. Sort video in together mode by background area

    If video feeds with less background area (user is closer to camera) were in the front rows, the scaling of users vs distance would look much more normal. Right now users are in mixed distance from our point of view.

  20. Video Screen Text/Graphic Overlays (Similar to sports broadcasts)

    We now have the ability to upload and use "backgrounds" during a video exchange. Sooo, how about offering the ability to upload custom "foreground" text and creative (similar to what you would see during a sports or news broadcast. As an example, you could have a bar (or any number of widgets) on the screen with the ability to customize the content in each widget (i.e., a persons title, where the person is located, name of the presentation they are giving, etc.). This would go a long way to really customizing a meeting and giving it a very professional and…
