  1. Make chat more like Skype

    The following could be added to the chat feature:
    Video calls could have an volume control from within teams. As adjusting the overall volume for the pc isn't ideal.

    Add a caption option, the same as skype. In my team we add our location and mobile number so everyone knows who's where.

    Add groups/dl to favourites on chat (the same as Skype)

    Add screen sharing on chat (currently I can only see it during a video call)

    Thanks.

  2. Prevent meeting participants from stopping a recording

    There are times when I'm hosting a meeting and presenting content within my organization. During the recording anyone in my org that is attending my teams meeting can stop my recording. A setting to prevent others from stopping a meeting hosts recording is necessary.

    We have confused Teams users that think stopping the recording will prevent them from being recorded. Instead they are stopping the recording for the meeting host which then causes fragmented clips in microsoft stream.

  3. The file sharing flow is clunky

    When you go to share a file with a second person after sharing it with someone first, you are asked if you want to replace the file you already shared. ... wait what? It was already in teams somewhere? Where? In files?... Nope... nowhere to be found there. If not there where? How can I just find it and elect to share it with someone new?

    Make this more obvious/smooth

  5. ability to edit meeting title (no title)

    When scheduling a teams meeting using Outlook, the meeting appears with (No Title) in teams. Add the ability to edit the meeting title since all of the chat, files, etc. is stored with the meeting

  6. Add a setting that allows skipping the "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab by default

    Every time I open a Teams link in my browser, it shows a tab that attempts to open the Teams desktop application. The "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab.

    I'm on Linux, I don't have the application on my desktop, so this is pointless.

    Add a setting, that would allow me to opt-out of ever seeing this tab again. I'd like the Teams link to take me directly to the Team web application.

  7. create meeting from office 365 web outlook calendar

    would be nice to be able to create a teams meeting from office 365 web outlook calendar. Currently you can do it with the normal outlook app but not in web outlook.

  8. Larger GIF Previews

    Once the GIFs button is selected, allow that window to either be resized, or make the GIF preview window along with the GIFs themselves bigger so we can actually read the text on the GIFs that are displayed.

  9. Assessment matrix linked to assignments within teams

    Contenders within Tasks/assignments can be graded. Would be great to manage and see these grades gathered within a team. Maybe as an channel-app?

  14. Automatic translation of messages into your prefered language.

    Sometimes is just easier to use your own language for writing, or you start a conversation in the middle of another and they are using different language. To have the option for automatic translation of the messages would be great for multicultural teams.
    I know other apps that have this functionality and sometimes is really useful.

  15. Add hover text explanation for menu items

    Add descriptive text to help people with confusing/similar definitions in the menus. For example, under the channel ... menu, show a definition of Follow and Favorite so people know what they do without having to read a how-to guide.

    Ultimately, I'm trying to find better ways to show people they need to take action to Follow and Favorite channels that are important to them.

  16. Ability to see participant meeting modalities in a conference

    While in a conference unable to see whether the participants in the meeting is active in the desktop sharing session / muted or unmuted audio, video, ability to unmute a participant after doing "mute all" - these were seemless in Sfb and would be missed if Teams is not have is same or better alternatives

  17. "Year in Review" feature

    I'd love to have something like Facebooks "Year in Review" videos that puts together a compilation (by team or channel) of the most popular posts and pictures. We use Teams to keep our many offices connected and promote the company culture and this would be a nice way to look back on the year.

  18. Add notification numbers to schedules icon

    I would like to see a notification number on the schedule/calendar icon - letting me know if I am scheduled for meetings that day. That way I don't have to search for all my meetings in different channels.
