    • Allow ANYBODY to share their screen

      Currently we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.

        At this point, screen sharing is enabled in our desktop client, but not web client. (in general, not just anonymous/guests). Adding browser support is in progress.

        Please comment if you are using the desktop app and are still unable to do so.

        I will keep you posted once available. Thanks.

      • Delete Private Chat threads

        This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

        Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

        To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:

        1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
        2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
        3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in…

        • Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

          Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

          • Provide Option to Set Microsoft Audio Conferencing Personal Identification Number (PIN)

            For Microsoft Audio Conferencing users, the Microsoft Teams meeting invitation includes a "Reset PIN" link - https://mysettings.lync.com/pstnconferencing. After logging onto the Office 365 Portal, the user is presented with a "Reset PIN" button that generates a new random Personal Identification Number. Can you please give the user the option to reset his\her PIN to a number of his\her choosing provided it meets the defined length requirement and basic complexity requirements (non-repeating, non-sequential)?

            • Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

              Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

              • Allow service numbers from a SIP trunk via Teams Direct Routing

                Could you please add support for service numbers (usable with auto attendant or call queues) that come from a SIP trunk connected via Direct Routing? It doesn't make sense to support BYOT with Teams Direct Routing but not having the possibility to use the numbers on the SIP trunk as service numbers for an auto attendant or a call queue.

                • Audio conferencing not letting attendees into the teams meeting Unless they are authenticated by the Teams app

                  We have been experiencing a bit of a problem since last week and honestly at this point I am not really sure whether it has to do with some of the new teams policy features in teams or it is actually a tech. problem.

                  Basically as of last week when a user creates a meeting (with dialins) in the Teams addon in Outlook and he/she tries to join the meeting as the meeting host via phone the other invitees are just stuck in the lobby forever, as if the host never joined.

                  On the other hand, when the host joins…

                    Hi There – First of all, we are so sorry that you are experiencing this issue. The engineering team is investigating and some information from users experiencing this would be super helpful.

                    If you are willing, can you please send the following to teamsml@microsoft.com?

                    1) How the meeting was scheduled – thru Outlook or Teams app
                    2) The join link + dial-in # shown in the meeting invitation
                    3) What time the issue occurred, and repro steps
                    4) Actual & expected results

                    Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this quickly. Thanks so much!

                    ~ Alex

                    • Open links to teams in Desktop App

                      SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

                      RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

                      This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

                      • -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled = true when created from Teams?

                        A recent update has changed -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled from default false to default true when Office 365 group is created by Teams. I would like an option for the user who creates the team to set this value upon creation. Our users need to use the O365 group as well as the team created in Teams. With this value set to true they cannot use the email functionality of the O365 group unless I use powershell to change the value every time someone creates a new team in Teams.

                        This post was created because of a suggestion from support and the information…

                        • Allow rearranging contacts and groups

                          The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

                          I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

                            Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

                            Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

                            And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

                            • Meeting Policy - presenter permissions

                              In Skype, you were able to set your meeting options for any particular meeting. You don't have this option in Teams and everyone from your organization is made a presenter by default, so anyone can mute or remove anyone including the meeting organizer from the meeting. At the very least, we should be able to set an option in the Meeting Policies to not allow entire organization to be presenters, but it would be better if the meeting organizer could decide who if anyone, can have those permissions.

                              • Lets make contacts great again!

                                Can we please have an awesome next-level contacts interface and management!? Pretty sure we were promised cool stuff in SfB that never came :(

                                While contacts management might seem like a pretty boring feature (because it is), its one of the most pivotal parts of the app. The whole point of the app is to communicate. So if you can't find or interact with contact information easily, it can be very frustrating!!!

                                The first thing that needs to be resolved is the fact that the "Calls" tab is the central location for contacts. That doesn't see right or make sense…

                                • Provide a much more obvious indicator that a Team has "Guests"

                                  My organization is EXTREMELY worried that a user may post something in a Team that has Guests without realizing external Customers may be in the Team. We are using the nomenclature that a Team name in ALL CAPS is a Team with external people, but it would be great if we could turn on a Banner on Posts (similar to the "This post will be seen by 65 people") in red or yellow so it's very very apparent that you are posting something external people can see.

                                  • Lock the Video Spotlight

                                    In Skype for Business hosted meetings, there is a feature called "Lock the Video Spotlight" that allows you to choose a video feed that's displayed to all participants. This feature does not appear to be in the Teams client today, and it doesn't appear on the Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams Capabilities Roadmap.

                                    In some Teams meetings I want all my participants to just view one presenters video stream and not have the 4 participant split view. We need a way for the Teams meeting host to force their video to be prominent from the participants view.

                                    • Support for Private Channels

                                      Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

                                      Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

                                      - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
                                      - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
                                      - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
                                      - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

                                        Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn

                                        And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.

                                        Thanks and ping me any time, for anything at all: www.twitter.com/skprufo or sparavi@microsoft.com. I’m a little behind on email but catching up, so apologies for delays there!

                                        • Need to be able to search/call Outlook contacts' phone numbers without leaving Teams

                                          The biggest obstacle and user complaint we have when rolling out Teams is that users cannot search for their Outlook contacts to call like they could in Skype For Business. Instead, they have to open Outlook and reference the contact's phone number which is inefficient & clumsy. It goes against everything else Teams does well in in terms of consolidating apps/interfaces. Users should be able to search for and call their outlook contacts via PSTN without having to leave Teams.

                                          Skype for Business is still a much more streamlined design for external PSTN calling because users cannot find and dial…
