  2. Stop Emailing Everyone About a Channel Meeting

    According to this feedback item this is completed but it is still happening: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17285378-not-automatically-invite-the-whole-team-to-a-chann

    I did find this blog post that describes how to turn it off: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/skypehybridguy/2018/01/06/why-do-i-receive-invites-to-channel-meetings-in-microsoft-teams-mystery-solved

    Please change the defaults here. Channel meetings should default to NOT EMAIL EVERYONE.

  3. Pausing screen sharing in Teams Meeting

    Similar to Webex, GoToMeeting, Zoom, and JoinMe...It would be really helpful to be able to pause screensharing vs have to start and stop every time you might need to pause sharing. Hope this capability is coming. Thanks!

  5. Out of Office

    Show Out of Office or automatic reply in Teams Status like we used to have for Skype for Business.

    It should show in the status Out of Office and then the message 'I am out of the office between X date and X date

  7. Automatic recording meetings

    If you know beforehand that a meeting should be recorded then it would be nice to have an option when scheduling the meeting to start recording automatically. This can help with not forgetting to start recording and save some time and effort not having to remember to do it manually.

  8. 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.

    This request is still on the backlog, no additional details are available at the moment.

  9. Track participation (meeting attendee log)

    I'd like to know how many people attended a meeting, when they joined, and when they left. Not all meetings need this but these can be very useful analytics for large presentations.

  10. No Chat Notifications When Meeting is Declined in Outlook


    1. I get a Teams meeting invite in Outlook.

    2. I decline the invite.

    3. If someone in that meeting posts in Chat, then I get a notification from a meeting I declined! I have to go to Teams and leave the meeting.

    Additional Info: My meeting invite is through a group list.

  11. Skype Room System + Teams doesn't provide dial pad once a call is connected

    Using a Skype Room System with an E5 license allows you to initiate a telephone call either via Skype or via Teams. When using the Teams option, you can dial a telephone # but once connected the dial pad is no longer accessible. When dialing into a conference #, this is often required in order to enter a PIN or conference code. The Skype option allows this dial pad access after a call is connected.

  12. OneNote Meeting Details (outlook) integration

    Currently there is a "Meeting Details" feature in OneNote or "Meeting Notes" feature in outlook. This feature allows you to link a OneNote page to a meeting, it pulls in the meeting details, and using skype it automatically tracks who is in attendance.

    Please expand this feature to Teams so that it automatically tracks who is in attendance. It would also be nice to expand upon this feature to have it automatically create pages when a meeting is scheduled for that team.

  13. Audio Feedback Loops

    We need a feature (similar to Skype for Business) to control how a user joins the audio portion of the meeting. The product works perfectly right now if everyone uses telephony headsets, but get 4 Surface Pros in a room, have everyone click the "Join" button and then wait for your ears to bleed as the audio all feeds back.

    Even having 3 out of 4 users click the mute button doesn't solve the problem because the meeting audio is still coming out of their speakers and feeding back into the one user who is using their mic to run…

  14. 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.

  15. Pop Out/Dedicated conference & meeting window for Teams Meeting

    If would be good to have a pop out dedicated window during conference call, meetings and screen sharing session like Skype for business.
    Currently it is very inconvenient to continue work on TEAMS without getting calls window minimized.

  16. Make meeting minutes shareable

    Currently if I join a meeting on Teams, there is an option to take meeting notes. It's a neat fetaure, but there is no way to export the contents of the note, I have to copy-paste it section by section.
    Please make a share button / option.

  17. Ask to join should "ask to join"

    In meetings there is an "Ask to join" option in the drop down for invitees who have not yet joined. It doesn't "ask" it calls them, this is very intrusive and can be confusing for somebody who is actually on their way or ending up some other meeting.

    Instead the button should do what it actually says, "Ask." Maybe it could pop up a banner reminder that says "Meeting name has started click here to join."

    Alternately change the name of the link to "Call now."

  18. Delete Meeting Conversations in Chat

    Hi,

    I don't want to keep meeting conversation times and history in chats tab. Please create Delete option. This shouldn't be saved at all. It is pretty silly to have a hide button instead of a Delete but you have delete button to delete the text in the conversation? I can also see security issues with this.

    Please add Delete soon in chat for meeting conversation. Otherwise, advise on how to get rid of these saved meeting conversations. The hide option is not helpful.

    Thanks

  20. Do Not Invite Entire Team on Channel Meeting

    Right now, when you setup a meeting for a channel, it will end up inviting all users and guests of the team to the meeting.

    If you have a large team, you usually don't want this.

    The scenario around this is you have a team of 20 people. This team is then split out into physical 5-person teams. Each of those physical teams has their own channel where they can do a daily stand-up. These teams also want to have this daily stand-up in a channel meeting of only their team, not the entire 20-person team.
