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

    At the moment iPad/iOS 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.

  2. Disable chat temporarily during meetings

    Please allow meeting organizer to temporarily disable chat during a meeting.
    We often have people so focused on the chat, they don't pay any attention to the actual meeting.
    We'd love to be able to turn off chat at the beginning of the meeting, and then turn it back on at an appropriate point.

  3. Teams Meeting organizer can force mute audio for attendees

    Give meeting organizers the ability to force mute audio for all attendees in the meeting options page. Attendees should not be able to un-mute their audio with this option set.

  4. Add Live Reaction Option in meetings

    This Live Reaction option (including "Thumbs Up") would be an easy way for Attendees to respond to the Presenter during meetings consisting of more than 15 people. This would prevent mass unmuting of microphones which causes the whole meeting to go out of order and most importantly loses time.

  5. 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.

  6. Toggle for presenter view in presentation share during meetings

    The presenter view when sharing a PowerPoint presentation is a great feature addition, however some users are finding this a hindrance and would like to disable it for their meetings. I can't see any way of doing this at present. Could a toggle be added to enable/disable the presenter view so that organisers/presenters have the choice of whether they use it or not.

    Many thanks!

  9. Speaker attribution in captions

    During any Meeting in Teams, it could be great if it provides speaker username along with Captions while scrolling and it will be great if those captions within meeting group as saved as history(ex: char history). so, that it will be easy to recollect discussion happened by reading all captions without voice help& without anybody's help.

  10. Introduce breakout room functionality

    We have a business requirement for breakout rooms with live events. The idea is pretty simple - we plan to use live events to host internal staff training webinars and as part of that, at times we will ask for small groups of people (typically 4-5) to go away into a breakout room and come back to the group with their answer/idea.

    We would like to see this functionality be introduced to Microsoft Teams for not only live events but also video calls. This would provide feature parity with pre-existing tools such as Zoom, WebEx and many more which would…

  11. Change default meeting options

    The default meeting options are not adjustable at this time. By default, the meeting options are set so that no one has to wait in the lobby and everyone has the presenter role by default. For each meeting, the meeting owner must manually adjust it. There is currently no option to adjust the standard. This is not pleasant for an education tenant.

    Make sure that it is possible to adjust the default meeting options.

    p.s. this is / was possible in Skype

    We’re happy to announce admins are able to change the default value of ‘Who can present?’ in Meeting Options via the new parameter, DesignatedPresenterRoleMode. For more information, please visit: https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/meeting-policies-in-teams or https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/policy-packages-edu

    In addition there is a new default Teams meeting policy to enforce lobby in meetings for tenants who have not modified the default meetings policy. With this change, meeting organizers can define/fine-tune the lobby experience via the Meeting options feature. For information on meeting options, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e

    Thank you for your feedback!

  12. Additional Together mode templates

    I'd love the ability to add further Together mode layout templates.

    Maybe you could add your own buildings auditorium.

    Muppet Mode would add some fun to Friday gatherings.

  13. Join a meeting without going through the browser

    Notify Teams meeting invitation emails in Outlook.
    Click on the meeting URL in the invitation email.
    At this time, the browser starts and opens the desktop client.
    Operation via this browser is inconvenient.
    I want to join the meeting with a desktop client without going through the browser.

  14. 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.

  15. View or export a list of users who attended a meeting

    Currently, there is no method of viewing a list of meeting attendees after a meeting has ended.

    Meeting organizers should be able to view or export a list of attendees, including enter and exit times, duration, etc.

  17. Polls and Forms in Meetings

    There have been several members on the Tech Community who have asked to have forms and polls in meetings. Currently can have notes, whiteboard, files etc. Snap polls were a part of SfB but having Microsoft Forms and Polls (whether via Polly or a native app) would be an improvement and a much more interactive meeting! Best, Chris

  18. Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

    When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

    This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

  19. Meeting Call Me Back Number

    After entering a meeting, if you would like Teams to call you back you need to enter a phone number in the Call Me Back box. (See attached file.) It would be great if this box would remember the last number called and there was a user setting to save a default number. This would save you from having to enter in the number every single time.

  20. 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.
