  1. Your team has reached the maximum number of private channels

    Today we attempted to create a new private channel and received the following error "Your team has reached the maximum number of private channels".

    OMG everyone at my company is going to KILL ME. I moved our entire organization off Slack to Teams and to streamline communication we went with a company Team and then inside that Team we create private channels for targetted audience communication. This was done to avoid having to create multiple teams then add everyone who would ever have to communicate with any of the channels inside the team.

    In slack they had no limitation on…

  2. sound notification

    The sound you updated to during the week of March 6 is HORRIBLE. Please give us an option to change sounds for chat notifications the same way we can change sounds for the phone calls

  3. Copy conversation link in a private channel

    I'd like to be able to copy a conversation link in a private channel, like you can for a public channel. This presently doesn't exist. I would imagine the link would appear as a dead link (not authorized), to anyone not in the private channel.

  4. live event attendee list

    Live Event Attendee List (during the event)

    Except for the people who are part of the organisation team (producers & presenters), a producer cannot see during the webinar WHO is attending it. For me, having a report AFTER the webinar is not enough.

    This idea was already discussed in the MS Teams Community, and it was suggested to post an idea here, but I didn't find any, so here you go ;)

  5. Add an option to disable auto-adjusting mic level

    When on the call the Teams will automatically adjust the mic sensitivity level. I want it to stay at the same level. It's really annoying as it picks up background sounds when not talking. Also, it doesn't readjust it after the call, so i.e. if I had set level 50% before the call the Teams will readjust it to 80% and it will stay at 80% after the call has ended. This forces me to keep manually adjusting the mic level. It's a minor thing, but really infuriating. Would be really great, to just have a checkbox to disable mic…

  6. Add Video Call Background default and settings to the account Settings drop down

    Add Video Call Background default and settings to the account Settings drop down. This way the background can be set before the call and a default set so you don't have to keep going into the settings.

  9. Ability to create breakout rooms during the session

    it would be great to have the ability to create breakout rooms into the session, for big groups you can do some virtual activities and designing small groups, the owner could start and stop the breakout rooms to have all back again to the main session

  10. Enable gallery view for Teams Live Events

    Enable gallery view of all presenters in a Teams Live Event to the attendees so they are able to see video of all presenters at same time.

  11. End meeting means End meeting

    Once the meeting has ended, no more people can join it or get back in, no more people can write in the associated chat. Ending the meeting actually ends the meeting completely and no more contributions to that meeting can be made

  12. Planner for Private Channels

    Would like to use the Planner inside private channels. For instance, we have a team about a specific technology/project, and we have created private channel to discuss about new sales/pipeline of that project, and we don´t want everybody to have access to its discussion and/or related agenda (Planner).

    But, when I try to create a Planner into this private channel, it doesn´t appear at the list, Planner only appears for non-private channels, like "General". Therefore, I cant have a Planner for a private channel, and I am using ASANA, which I can plug-in my Private Channel at Teams.

  13. More than one person on live event screen

    It would be WONDERFUL to have more than one webcam showing in a live event. This would allow for a panel discussion and proper virtual interaction/debate between presenters. Similar to what GoToWebinar has
    Is this in the pipeline?

  14. Live Event - Producer voice isolation

    We held our first teams Live Event yesterday, on the whole it was amazing. My only gripe is that as producer I would like the option to be able to speak to the presenters without the attendees being able to hear.

    Thanks

  15. 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…

  16. Schedule Meetings for Multiple teams

    Add the option to schedule a meeting with multiple Teams. For instance, I have multiple classes I teach, and at times I would like for the meeting to appear in multiple Teams. Currently you can only schedule one channel/Team.

  17. Teams meeting - lock the meeting

    The meeting host should have the possibility to look/anlock a meeting, so that no one additional can join the meeting after it is looked. Excample: in a director meeting I'm invited to present a special topic. Then, I have to leave and the meeting host can lock the meeting so that I cant't join again. Otherwise I could join and maybe eavesdrop .

  19. Colour categories in Calendar

    It would be really useful for the Outlook colour categories to show in the Teams calendar. I rely heavily on these to make sense of my calendar with a large number of appointments and in the current release of calendar this will make me likely to still revert back to Outlook rather than use Teams for calendar management.

  20. 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.
