  1. Keep background settings between calls

    The new backgrounds are great! However, settings go back to default after the call has ended. Please remember my previous camera background setting so I don't have to set it again every call.
    Second choice is to be able to set blur or background before entering the call.

  2. Notification Sounds

    Please add different notification sounds, and a way to change those. Skype was wonderful with this. Please add a similar feature back to Teams.

  3. Improve reply to channel and reply to thread usability

    People accidentally reply to channel when they should be replying to a thread. This makes the channel a mess. Improve the usability aspect of this making it more intuitive to reply to the thread one is reading right now!

  4. Allow upload of pre-recorded video

    It would be great to upload a pre-recorded video such as a or town hall. This would allow producers to switch between the pre-recorded content and the live component.
    It would also allow people to use Live Events for webinars with better production value as they could record the content beforehand and then be available to answer Q&A live.

  5. Present in Live Event from mobile device

    Allow presenters to join and present in the Live event from their mobile devices. Include the option to present from both cameras, front and back one.

    We are having busines updates around the openspace. Therefore, having presenters using their mobile devices to present themselves, or present the person next to them speaking would greatly increase the usability of live event.

    Not only, would the off site team been able to attend/present "in the field", but also office based staff would benefit greatly from having significant announcements done in the openspace rather than enclosed area of a meeting room.

  6. Audio and Video Recorder for Assignments

    For many classes, especially public speaking, foreign language, music, and theater, it would be incredibly useful if there was an audio and/or video recorder built in to assignments. Right now, a student has to record the file in a third-party app, copy to OneDrive, and then attach to the assignment - three steps and three apps. It would be far faster and provide an easier and more stable user experience if students could simply record their Audio and Video directly into the assignment.

  8. Shift notification update

    When I make a change in Shifts and a notification is sent to the affected Teams members it only indicates that their schedule was changed. My recommendation would be to indicate which shift, or day, was changed. I manage the schedule for 86 security officers and am constantly making changes to their schedules. We provide security at several locations and need to reassign officers to these different locations several times per week. When I make a change in Shifts, it would be extremely helpful to let our officers know what day and shift was changed.

  9. 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.

  10. Add a place where students can view all assignments regardless of what class they are assigned for at once.

    Instead of each class's assignments being listed in a different place, the assignments tab should allow you to view a master list of all assignments, sort of like a planner would.

  12. Users added to team line removed

    In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
    As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
    We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.

  14. reply on chat

    In teams chat: If we are doing a group chat. it will be difficult to know who is replying on what message. Even sometimes on a one to one chat. We get confused on what message he replied as we just keep typing the matter.

    So, Just like in WhatsApp, we can select the message in a chat and click on reply and answer it. this will avoid the confusion and make things clearer on exactly what message I responded. Crisp and clear communication.

  18. Pin video feed in a recording

    When recording a broadcast, the subsequent video created shows the video feeds of other participants (and initials if there is no video feed). Please create a feature where the organizer can mark a video feed as the "Recording feed" so that video feed is full screen on playback.

    Use case: Project boards; an external camera is viewing a project board - we want it to be full screen so users can have a clear view of the board rather than having it quarter of the size and 3 boxes filled up with initials of some of the participants.

  19. Add watermark to meetings to prevent anonymous recording of meeting content

    To decrease the risk of confidential information leaving a Teams meeting due to a participant recording the content from a phone or external camera, please consider adding a watermark to the meeting recording that identifies the attendee or user of that Teams app. While watermarks could be edited in video, it is less likely that someone would edit the watermark and the profile bubble of the Teams user (in top right of the Teams app).

    Thank you!
