  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Users added to team line removed

    In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
    As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
    We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  13. Add the raise your hand feature to IPad/IPhone/Mobile ASAP

    My online classes are going on and in our class nobody is allowed to ask a question without raising their hand. So it’s been a big problem for me. I want to you add this feature to other types of devices as soon as possible.

  15. Issue with guests reentering Teams meetings and bypassing the lobby

    • Navigate to the Teams admin center
    • Navigate to the tab “meetings” then “meeting policies”
    • In there they should have a “global policy” that we can edit (they would just have to click it)
    • From here Navigate to “participants & guest” and change “automatically admit people” from “everyone” to “everyone in the Organization”
    • Then also change “allow dial-in user to bypass the lobby” to “off”
    If the Guest user be admitted at the first he joined the meeting, then he left the call and rejoin. The Guest will automatically bypass the lobby, this is concerning from…

    Thank you for your feedback! We have released a feature that if an anonymous or federated user is admitted into the meeting via the lobby, that user will go through the lobby for each subsequent rejoin. It does not matter if the user left on their own, was removed, or dropped from the meeting.

  16. Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) environment.

    Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) teams environment.

    They don't work anymore and we have to use @チーム and @チャネル. The flow to put them in is "@" > "switch input mode to multi-byte" > "ti-mu" > "convert into Katakana" > "Enter".

    They are inconvenient and @team and @channel are simple and better to us.

    However, we have many clients in Switzerland who'd like to use Team Live Events and have a need to record their Team meetings.

  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.
