  1. When I select the "Reply all with IM" in Outlook it only opens a Teams chat window with the sender, same as "Reply with IM"

    I turned on Teams as my default IM option from Outlook, but when I select the "Reply all with IM" it only opens a Teams chat window with the sender, same as "Reply with IM". Another colleague confirmed the same behaviour. Is this a bug, or is there something else I need to do in my setup for this to work correctly?

  3. STOP MAKING TEAMS OPEN ON STARTUP

    I hate hate HATE this **** app because of it. At least give the user the option to have it open on startup. Every. Single. Time. I use this slack copycat of an app it decides that I must want this thing open on startup.

  4. 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)?

  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.

  7. 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.

  8. appear offline

    I want to access Teams content while able to "appear offline"

    This is a feature request regarding the presence capability versus other offline features that want to use Teams while disconnected.

    This feature allows
    People to do work at off hours without being interrupted.
    People to look or retrieve content which has no concept of presence.

    For those concerned about abuse of an appear offline feature and enabling presence liars, users can still lie and set any of the current presence states with the same intention.

    I can be connected to the network and use Outlook, OneNote, SharePoint, etc. and…

  9. 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…

  10. Show more than 4 active people in video calls

    Teams is limited to showing 4 video streams at a time, it would be better if we had some control over that. We do a morning standup every morning with 8 remotes, it would be great if we could see them at all times.

  11. Mac Teams Helper: Takes up too much CPU and makes app almost unusable

    I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.

    I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.

    I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2

  12. Show if call forwarded or from a call group in call history / missed calls

    If an incoming call is being forwarded from another user or is being forwarded as part of a call pickup group, this is displayed in the popup call notification, however it is not displayed in the users call history. The calls just show as a missed call.

    This is causing confusion for users as they see these forwarded/call group calls as missed calls and then try to return the call.

    An additional column or a different 'Type' for these calls would resolve this issue.

  14. reply chat

    Hello gents,
     
      would it be possible to add the reply button to the chats in Teams just like in the Teams channels. It would be easier then to reply to a previous statement when the chat grows and get bigger with lots of statements. Replying to an old statement is fundamental sometimes to get the chat flow without loosing the topic.
     
    Something like Whatsapp, where you can select the statement and reply to that one only. That would become a huge enhancement within company that are largely using Teams.
     
    Thanks.

  15. Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat

    Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat. Currently we can only share our screen to external contacts when in a meeting. We can share screen to our internal colleagues but not to External Users. We will be needing to add them as a Guest Users first.

  16. Support on-call shifts.

    I would like to create an on-call schedule for employees who are required to be on standby for multiple days. Shifts can currently be a maximum of 23h and 45min long. This prevents the creation of on-call shifts that routinely last for weeks.
    Suggestion: Support multi-day shifts, full 24h shifts, or support on-call schedules natively.

  17. Provide attendee activity and engagement data post meeting

    Currently other solutions (such as Zoom and Clearslide) can provide a report at the end of each meeting which contains information on attendee activity and their level of engagement. Having this capability is essential to drive increased uptake of Teams for meetings, specifically those that are customer facing.

  18. 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.

  19. Stop Recording on Exit

    We need an option/pop-up to stop recording on meeting exit. At the moment if someone who is recording a meeting exits the meeting, the recording continues forever. What's worse is that the person who started the recording is the only one who can stop it. I "get" that part of the reason why only one person owns the recording is because of the need to associate the recording with a particular Microsoft Steam account... so what I propose are two things:

    1. On exit, if you are recording, you are given a prompt to also end recording or leave it…
