  1. More obtrusive notification sounds

    Notification sounds are not obtrusive enough. The current notification sound scheme is barely audible even when actively using my computer. As someone who is on-call and occasionally receives critical messages via chat, I need notifications to be audible and identifiable from a distance. Either change the default notification sounds to something more audible or provide the ability to customize sound scheme and volume.

    • Timecode comments on videos

      We are already allowed to comment on files, but it would be great if we could be taken to a specific frame when we comment on video files.
      This function exists in solutions like frame.io, wipster and vimeo video review.

      We're migrating everything to teams and planner so this one function would great for us.

      • PSTN Reverse Number Lookup (show username from Address book not PSTN number) in Teams Toast and Call History

        When a PSTN user calls you on Microsoft Teams, if the number is in the address book I would like to be presented with the users name on the toast, not just the PSTN number. The same for call history or anywhere else a PSTN number appears in the client

        • Live Events Mute/Unmute Participants for Q&A

          Allow the producer to unmute/mute participants if they ask a question. So the experience could be, a person asks a question in Live Events, the Producer selects them and announces "We have a question from Bob" and then unmutes Bob and allows Bob to verbally ask his question.

          • Teams in SysTray does not distinguish between Activity & Presence

            Whether you are in a meeting or got a message, in both cases you get a RED DOT. This is not clear or very helpful.

              • Remove "Staff Notebook" from Microsoft Teams for Education

                I am not sure if this is a bug or not but we are using Microsoft Teams educational licenses. We want to use the Teams for our internal staff departments first. For some reason the setup of teams includes extra educational features like it force creates a OneNote tab called "Staff Notebook" in the General channel of each team. the OneNote includes a lot of classroom type customization that we do not want/need. Our departments have their own OneNotes. I cannot delete Staff Notebook tab or even rename it. I can add and delete other OneNotes but we want a…

                  • Driving Audio Mode

                    The Teams mobile client needs a Driving Audio Mode. In this mode, the screen sharing and video goes off. The audio controls stay on screen and the mute button is nice and large and easy to hit. With it currently, when I'm driving, I often have to go on and off mute and so I'm having to tap the screen to get the controls to show up, then tap in a very small spot quickly before the controls disappear. This makes me take my concentration off the road too much.

                    • Opening office apps (like planner) inside the teams app, similar to the desktop app.

                      Similar to the desktop app, tabbed apps should open inside the mobile app instead of the browser.

                      • Out of office pop up showing up constantly for all users

                        Hi,

                        We at work are in a group chat and when someone is out of office, the little grey bar ontop of the chat box keeps showing up with the info that the person is out of office and may not respond.

                        You can close it but every time you re-open the chat tab it pops back up.

                        This happens for all users in chat (about 20 participants).

                        Can we disable this?

                        Thanks

                          When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
                          Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.

                          • Integration Delve Profiles in Teams

                            Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

                            Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

                            But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

                                    Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.

                                  • When recording a meeting, record the screen that is being shared.

                                    We just recorded a meeting for our team. No one used their cameras, but we were all watching someone's screen being shared to follow along with the code example. The recorded meeting only shows the icons of folks on the team, it does not show the screen we were all watching.

                                      Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

                                      • Call Contact's Work or Cell phone

                                        When I click the call button on a contact, Teams automatically begins a teams/skype call to the user. It should offer options to call the user's phone numbers (work/cell/other) or to make a skype/teams call, similar to the drop down menu offered by skype for business.

                                        • Improve Giphy library!

                                          Giphy keyboards on other business comm apps have amuch more extensive library if gifs as well as a much better search feature (i.e. Slack)

                                          Please improve the giphy keyboard - we all love using it but the Teams one is quite unuseful!
