  4. Italian subtitles

    Hi to all. I use Teams a lot in smart working and I am satisfied with it. But I have a serious problem. I'm deaf so I need Italian subtitles in videochats. Unfortunately Teams provides English subtitles only. Would a beta version with Italian subtitles be feasible? (Microsoft owns Skype which already provides Italian subtitles). Thank you.

  5. Prepare meeting breakout rooms

    As a creator of a meeting I want to prepare my breakout rooms before the meeting gets started. So i already assigned people to rooms before the meeting is going to start.

    When the meeting is in progress i Only need to open the rooms.

    Next to that you want to send documents directly from the main room to the breakout rooms

  6. Change Teams Meeting Organizer

    We often have one person booking a meeting or series of meetings (say training classes) that ends up being run by others. Would be nice if the meeting organizer could add another organizer or change the organizer to someone else. Currently only the organizer can take attendance. In our case, the organizer may not even be planning on attending the meeting.

  7. Assign multiple organizers on a Teams meeting

    It would be great if Teams could allow us to assign multiple meeting organizers on a meeting because currently only the organizer can change the meeting option and close the meeting and the meeting can only have a single organizer. This is not convenient for our business.

    Thank you for your feedback. Our performance team is working on improving the overall performance of the Windows client. We expect to see performance jumps in the latest version of Electron rolling out (Electron 10).

  9. Why did Teams remove the full screen option during Screen Sharing and Meetings?!?

    Why did Teams remove the full screen Option during Screen Sharing and Meetings? This was an option before and now it's been replaced by "Focus" which DOES NOT do the same thing. Now ever time someone share their screen with me, I have to squint at what they're showing. The Focus option does nothing. We used to be able to full screen shared screens and see everything at the proper size. It is unprofessional of Microsoft to keep removing and changing useful features without any notice.

  10. Allow iPad/iOS/Android users to change their background on a Teams call

    At the moment iPad/iOS/Android users cannot change their background during a MS Teams call. It would be great if we get that functionality available for all users so we can use theme backgrounds during meetings.

    Thank you for your feedback! The background replacement feature for iOS is currently being tested internally. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    The feature team is also working on adding background replacement support for Teams calls and meetings on Android. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    For the separate feature ask for Android background blur, please track and upvote https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/40203496.

  11. See participants while sharing screen

    Currently, participants can see others while the screen is shared. But the presenter cannot. I would like it to be able to see participants while sharing my screen.

  12. Make Video Recordings automatically upload to Stream Again.

    Make Video Recordings automatically upload to Stream Again. It was a VERY BAD decision to change this functionality. Our Teachers were all trained on making video lessons and sharing with Students. Now, they are ready to hang me. CHANGE THIS BACK BEFORE I AM ERASED, ALONG WITH TEAMS!

  13. Assign Custom background to entire Organisation from Teams Admin Portal

    Assign Custom background to a entire Organisation from Teams Admin Portal

  14. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! The team has reviewed this request and has added it to our backlog for both Standard (Public) to Private and Private to Standard (Public) channel conversion. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.

  15. Virtual background support for Linux

    Please add support for using a virtual background on Linux.

    Suggested initial level of support:
    * Support using a green/blue screen to determine where to replace the background (i.e., simple overlay).
    * Support using a user provided PNG or JPEG image for the virtual background.

    Future level of support:
    * Support blur or replace of the background without needing a green/blue screen (this would understandably require either a GPU for acceleration or a very high performance CPU).
    * Support using a MPEG or OGG video for the virtual background.

    Using V4L2 hardware acceleration (when available) would be preferred to doing…

  16. Teams meeting lobby - allow "selected people" to bypass lobby

    With the new "Only me" option for bypassing the lobby, this puts huge onus on organisers who might not normally expect to attend a meeting but where the meeting has a requirement to hold particpants int eh lobby.

    For example ...

    Person A sets up a MS Teams meeting that we will use to teach a random group of students about a topic. Person A sets the lobby to "only me" and invites person B as a "presenter". They also invite 100 random students.

    On the delivery day Person A arrives and admits person B from the lobby shortly before…

  18. Allow multiple video/camera feeds at same time in Live events

    With everyone moving to remote these days, it's important for our executive team to provide the same sort of all-staff meeting experience. We currently use 3rd-party tools and want to use Teams, but the Q&A is a cumbersome experience AND our executive cannot each individually show their camera at the same time live as they are answering the questions that come in through the Q&A.

    This seems like a gimme sort of feature, but I can't find it anywhere.

  19. 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.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The team is reviewing how best to address this issue and make this more user-friendly. Note: Your meeting attendees receive a non-mirrored video including the image of you and any text, whiteboards, etc. The image and video in your Call Monitor screen is shown to you only, as if you were looking in a mirror.

  20. Pop out video for DHH student's ASL Interpreter

    Our deaf and hard of hearing students can not see their interpreter well once the teacher uses screen share/presents because the video of the interpreter shrinks too small. Please have an option to select and pop out a participant. This is the sole reason our district is allowing the DHH team to use Zoom instead. However we have DHH students in non-DHH classes with hearing students and that teacher is required to use Teams for synchronous learning. Please add this accessibility for our DHH students so they can join ALL classrooms.
