  1. Add a "Camera state in new conversations [on|off|last state]" in settings

    Hi,

    I know this has already been asked almost the same way in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19005034-allow-the-camera-to-be-disabled-by-default but the conversation is closed and the given response does not answer the exact need.

    For privacy sake, a lot of our (100k+ company) users want to start their conversations with the camera ALWAYS turned off, no matter what was the previous state when they left the last meeting/conversation.

    To let the user with full control depending on his wish/needs. this could be implemented as a new setting to control the camera state when starting conversations/meetings which could have the following choices:
    - Always on (no…

  2. Want to inform system administrators when we shared files to external users

    I would request a notification feature for Microsoft Teams to send alerts or e-mails to system administrators if we shared files to external users (guest users).

  4. Allow or create bridge that allow joining teams meetings from skype for business client and room system

    Allow or create bridge that allow joining teams meetings from skype for business client and room system. We have invested hundreds of thousands of $ on Skype for business compatible rooms systems, only to be told that they will not work with teams unless we use an external bridge. (we mainly us Polycom group series with skype interop license) It would be great if we could join a teams meeting from skype client including content sharing.

  5. Allow multiple PSTN numbers to be assigned to one user

    For Office 365 phone system and teams to really start replacing PBX deployments it needs to add some missing features. One of the easy (hopefully) ones is to allow a user to have multiple lines associated with them such as region specific direct dial numbers. At present you can only associate one number.

  6. Assignment Turn In Notifications to Teacher

    Does anyone have an update on this? When students turn in assignments that are past due, there is no way of knowing unless the teacher manually goes back and checks each individual assignment. I would love to get a notification in my email that a student submitted something late, just like Google Classroom. Has anyone found a good way to manage this?

  9. Pin a wiki page to the sidebar and/or open in a separate tab

    When working on a wiki page for any substantial amount of time, you may need to interact with people via a channel or chat. It's pretty painful to go back to the channel and wiki, find the page you were working on again... then go answer a chat and have to re-locate that all over again. The "back" button isn't a solution because if you've answered several chats then it takes you back through the whole history.

    I'd like to be able to pin a page to the sidebar or possibly open it in a new tab in the desktop…

  11. Hide the darn sidebar....

    Don't you just love it when you're in Teams and someone shares their desktop and control with you, but the Teams sidebar reappears every time you move your mouse to the left... Want to click on the start button, nope, can't do that.... Teams gets in the way.

    Take this stupid side bar / navigation bar / whatever you want to call it and get it out of the way when sharing a desktop / remote control. How about allowing us to unpin it and move it somewhere else... Or turn it off, or how about just fixing Teams so…

  13. API for opening office files in Teams

    Please provide an api to open office files within Teams. Currently you have an api to create files in Teams but there is no api to open it within Teams. I see that there is already a function for that in the teams.js but currently not usable by third party apps.

  15. Allow Guests in Meetings to Select PowerPoints

    When a guest joins a 'meet now' meeting and wants to share a PowerPoint, they do not see the PowerPoint section of the share tray. They have to set the PP up in a separate window and share that. This works but then they cannot see any of the other participants since the slide show takes over the whole screen (1 monitor available)

    If they could also see the PowerPoint section in the share tray where they could select PowerPoints in the team, that would allow them to share and still see the others as thumbnails at the bottom.

  16. Incorporate Outlook Tasks into the "Calendar" (instead of "Meetings") tab in Teams

    Similar to the Meetings functionality where you can see the upcoming meetings and your Outlook Calendar, adding Tasks to Teams would allow easier prioritization in Day to Day. It would also be helpful to add Team Visibility of outstanding tasks and allow Tasks to have automated Reminders.

  20. Code snippet window closes on hitting esc key without confirm dialog

    When adding code to the snippet editor and hit cancel there is a confirmation dialog asking the user

    "Are you sure you want to close without saving your changes?"

    This dialog doesn't show up when the user is hitting the escape key and all changes will get lost!
