  1. delete recorded meeting

    There is no way to delete a meeting that has been recorded in a channel. There have been a couple of times that I have started and ended one realizing I was in the wrong channel or that I didn't give it a title or topic name.

  2. Upload files into directly into folders in Teams on iOS app

    A requested feature in Teams on iOS device is the ability to upload files directly to folders in Teams. At this time, you may upload files in the conversation tab, but it will be uploaded directly in the root of the team. In what I request, you should be able to access the Teams file archive, go to the folder where you want to upload the file and then upload.

    The picture shows where I'd love to have an "attach a file"-button.

  4. Guest Presenter in Team Live Event Meeting

    It does not appear that Guest users can be a presenter in a Live Event meeting. This is a key functionality as not all presenters will be employees.

  5. 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.

  6. Screen sharing within chat

    I need to be able to share my screen with a coworker at a different location WITHIN a chat. I also need my coworker to be able take over my computer within chat. Right now it seems you can only share your screen during a meeting.

  7. Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call

    When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.

    Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).

  8. Mute

    Ability to control who has access to muting all other meeting participants.

    In other meeting platforms (Webex, GoTo Meeting), only the meeting host or delegates hosts have the ability to mute everyone else in the meeting. In Teams, everyone can mute all other participants and this is a concern for companies switching over from those platforms.

    Can we create an option where only the meeting host has the ability to mute all other participants?

    The option to allow only the meeting organizer to mute attendees is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:

    Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
    - Present
    - Mute All
    - Remove/Add Users
    - Admit Users from Lobby
    - Start/Stop Recording

    For more info, please see the documentation below:

  9. Show video for all people in Video meeting

    Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

    This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

    We are excited to announce large gallery view (7×7 videos) and Together mode are available to the public for desktop & mobile.

    Large Gallery is an optional feature and can be turned on at any time during the meeting. The new large gallery has a flexible design and will deliver a network-optimized client video experience that works on multiple device categories.

    For more information, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/office/using-video-in-microsoft-teams-3647fc29-7b92-4c26-8c2d-8a596904cdae?storagetype=stage#ID0EABAAA=Desktop

  10. Is there a way for IT admins to export team membership and email address?

    Team Owners should have the ability to export team member names and email address into a .CSV file.

    As an admin, I'd like to be able to double check with my support teams to figure out when we don't have proper access to reports and other sites that our Team Site is tied into.

    So I'd like to be able to export the team member list so I can audit who is apart of the team, remove who isn't needed or share needed information to other parties.

  11. Turn off message preview in notification toast

    Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"

    To provide you with even more privacy, Teams now lets you turn off message previews in your desktop notifications. Message previews are on by default. To turn them off, go to your profile picture, select Settings > Notifications > Show message preview. From here, switch the toggle to off.

  12. Filter shifts by members

    Should be able to filter shifts by member. We could have an option to filter by one or more members, so shifts rows would be displayed only for that members filtered. That would be faster to manage more than one team members at the same time, not looking for one by one member as it is today.

  13. 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.

  14. screenshare without audio

    In Skype for Business it's possible to share your screen without using the audio feature. This is important for us, because we use a different conf bridge. Using Skype/Teams audio in that scenario just gets in the way (echo, unwanted audio through PC, etc).

    Bottom line, it would be nice to be able to share your screen in Teams without using the voice/audio feature.

    I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect today – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.

    Please feel free to respond to teamsml@microsoft.com if you are still seeing issues.

    Thanks,

  15. Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`

    It's very confusing to new users that there is a difference between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new one within a channel. This is a visual thing as much as anything else. The 'reply' buttons are not naturally attractive if you just want to start typing a message. There should be a logical gap between the bottom of a conversation and 'start a new conversation'. 'Start a new conversation' needs to be separated visually, as if it's a second order command rather than a first order...reply.

  18. Allow anonymous guests to chat within a meeting

    Currently, if a guest joins a meeting anonymously, it seems they cannot chat with each other or the organiser.

    If someone wanted to use Teams to webcast to a wide range of users who mostly don't have a Teams account, and may be private citizens rather than organisations, the only option for them to join is anonymously.

    But they then can't use the Chat feature to ask questions (which would be preferable to them using audio on a busy webcast).

    Or is this feature already planned in and coming soon...?

    Thanks,

  19. Create alias mention groups, or mention DLs like @here (Slack has this)

    Can we @mention everyone in the team at once (group) instead of using @ for every single name?

    Also, can we use a different first name than the system because people goes by different name?
    It will help if we can copy and paste the @ mention for new conversation.

    Basically, I'm looking to be able to create an "@" alias for different groups of people within a team.

    Use Case:
    We have a team with 3 designers, 2 mobile devs, 2 strategists, and 2 web devs. It would be nice to have the ability to set up tags like…

    Thanks for all of your ideas and feedback! We’re excited to announce that Tags in Teams are now available. Tags let you quickly reach a group of people all at once. With tags, you can categorize people based on attributes, such as role, project, skill, training, or location. For example, a “Nurse” or “Manager” or Designer" tag will enable you to reach groups of people in Teams without having to type every single name.
    Once a tag is added, just @mention it in a channel. Everyone who has been assigned that tag will receive a notification just as they would if they were @mentioned individually.

  20. Increase the limit of users in a team to 10,000

    We are 10,000 employees and want to be able to communicate to everyone in a team. Teams have a limit of 5000 users so we will probably choose another tool for our organization. When will this limitation disappear?

    We are pleased to announce general availability of 10,000 member teams. All new and existing teams can accommodate up to 10,000 members, double the previous limit. Larger groups can now collaborate effortlessly in a single team and leaders can connect with a broad audience within their organization.
