  1. Make public channel private

    It would be nice to convert some of our already established channels to private now the feature is available in the same way it may be desired to de-classify a private channel to public at some point too.

    Currently a channel privacy can only be set during creation.

  2. Load picture as background instead of blur background in Teams video chat

    How about loading a picture as a defined background instead of just blur the background during a Teams video chat?

    So, for example, I could load an all black picture as the default background to keep the focus on me.

    Thanks for your feedback – the increase in votes recently has been noticed. We are working on this feature and are hoping to release within a quarter. We’ll share more updates as we get closer to the release.

    Thanks.

  3. Create Planner tabs within Private Channels

    We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.

    What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?

  4. Support to host a meeting in a Private Channel

    Hi there, I've setup a private channel in a Team for supervisors only. I'd like to "host" the regular staff meeting in the private channel, but i can only select "public" channels. Can Microsoft add the ability to host Team meetings within a private channel?

    Screen Share with recent Teams build for 3440 x 1440 resolution shows a black screen. Perhaps add an ability to see resolution or zoom or select what needs to be shared with the user.

    Thank you for providing this feedback. We are sorry you are experiencing this issue, and are working on a fix.

    This issue is specific to screen (desktop) sharing scenario and for 3440×1440 resolution specifically. In the meantime, please try using either ‘application sharing’, or change your resolution to a higher or lower resolution for screen sharing.

    I will update when the fix is available. Thanks.

  10. About quote Reply

    The Teams mobile app has a quote reply feature.
    But, the quote reply feature is not available in the team's desktop app.
    I think Quote Reply is a great feature, so please add it to the Teams desktop app.

  15. Toggle video camera mirroring on or off for Teams calls

    ISSUE: Video feed is always mirrored during a Teams call, meaning that written text, such as on a whiteboard, is displayed incorrectly.
    SOLUTION: Provide a toggle option to not mirror the camera when in a video call.

  16. outlook integrations for shifts

    Once a user is assigned a schedule within shifts the schedule should sync to their outlook calendar.

    It would also be nice to see Available shifts in outlook and be able to accept them (or at least link to the shift in teams to be able to accept)

  17. Make meeting window detachable so that meeting window is separate and chats window is separate.

    Make meeting window detachable so that meeting window is separate and chats window is separate. Right now, every window is within teams. It makes difficult to see presentation and as well chat with some one else.

  18. Ms teams Mobile and Bot Framework: sending images

    We're facing troubles because the documentation explicitly says that file exchange between ms-teams bots and users is not supported on Mobile.

    Is 2020 Why to avoid file exchange interaction in ms teams for Mobile, when all major competitors supports this feature since time ago?

    Rather than offering value to the user this is the opposite. A wide set of escenarios are blocking adoption because for some reason ms-teams doesn't offer support for a feature that is considered a minimum requirement for a collaboration platform.
    We should remember that teams isn't about chat -- like skype -- where the expectation is…

  20. Voicemail on busy

    When someone calls me, either internally or externally, and I'm on another call, the default behavior should send the call to voicemail after popping a notification and perhaps a subtle ring. This business of ringing more than once when I'm on a call is not helpful.
