  1. Hide or move the meeting toolbar during a Teams meeting

    Is it possible to move the meeting toolbar during a Teams meeting? It is usually right over something I want to read from what is being shared. I tried dragging without success and can't see a way to minimise it as we could with Skype.

    The only way to hide it is to click outside of the bar once.
    However, as soon as you move your mouse pointer the bar re-appears... I need something more controllable, as I often need to flick into other docs for reference while in meetings.

  2. Allow organizer to close participant video in Teams meeting

    When having multiple persons participating Teams meeting often it is nice to join with video on. Sometimes others may suffer a poor-quality connection or have their webcam pointed in other direction than it supposed. Is there a roadmap to allow the meeting organizer to switch off the participants video like you can mute other persons?

    Thank you for your feedback! The team has reviewed this request and has added it to our backlog for both Private to Standard (Public) and Standard (Public) to Private channel conversion. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.

  4. Hide user presence from external contacts

    External contacts are able to see your availability in real time which has various implications for security, business operations and relationships. Please include a global option to prevent external contacts from seeing internal user presence.

  5. Block the Teams Echo bot from joining a meeting

    The Teams Echo bot (meant for testing one's microphone) can be invited to a meeting via the "partipants" tab. No reasonable person would do this since it is extremely disruptive to the meeting, however, unruly students (i.e., class clowns) find this amusing.

    Unfortunately, there is currently no way to block, mute, or remove this participant -- we have to listen to it go through it's full script before it departs.

    Ideally this bot would not be able to join meetings (especially those with multiple participants in them). However, an explicit ability to block/mute/boot the bot would be appreciated as well.

  7. Reposition the control bar

    allow the user to change the position of the control bar. It is positioned right where screen sharing occurs and you can't see the entire screen share

  8. Presenter Mode to be available on iPad for Teams Live Event

    Lots of Chief X Officers (CXO) just have iPad as their primary device of working. With COVID19, they are wanting to use Live Events for Townhalls, broadcast, employee engagements, etc. They also don't have an alternate device with them, such as Laptop or MAC machines. Given the same it will be helpful to have Presenter Mode available on iPad for Teams Live Event.

  9. Allow Me to Set Video Quality

    During meeting calls where my internet is running slow, I'd like to lower the video resolution / quality in order to help better stream audio. Right now, there's no ability to throttle video quality.

  10. Tagging in private channels

    Tags are finally out!

    But it works only for public channels in a Team. It would be great to have the same functionality for private channels.

    Use case:
    We are providing a DMS support for our organizational units in MS Teams.
    Each organizational unit has its own private channel where the support team and the organizational unit users are finding place. Private channels are used to avoid data leak. For the users it's difficult to mentrion all the people from the support team using @.

    So it would be greate to have the same functionallity for tags as public channels…

  11. Turn off chat notifications for current meeting

    Turn off notifications for meeting chat for the current meeting.

    When I'm in a meeting I still get notifications for the chat of the current meeting, even when I have the meeting chat open on the right side.

  12. Team Owners should have an option to disable "meet now" in selected Channels.

    Meet now can be disabled at Tenant level or User level currently. Need to have option in channel settings. Team owners can disable or enable it as required.

  17. Spotlight Recording

    When recording a Teams meeting and using the spotlight feature will the recording of the meeting still show all attendees or focus the recording on the spotlighted video feed? For training and review purposes I would like the spotlighted feed to be the focus of the recording.

  20. Professional Live Events Producer Usage

    I have a number of small ideas around the practical use of the producer end of live events.

    1 Offer more options with regards to split screens eg two face images at the same time. 50/50 split and smaller/larger would be good. don't just restrict to a presenter and a document.

    2 Add in the ability to share from two devices at the same time and switch between them. At least one presenter and the producer. If you need a backup, one will bump the other off the shared screen. It also automatically goes live if you do this bump…
