  1. Avoid chaos when you have a lot of teams and keep them findable with team metadata

    When you have a lot of teams it becomes chaos and it's hard to find the team you are looking for. The idea is to add metadata to a team when you create it (see the attached images). With this metadata you can filter the list of available teams based on the type of team, owner(s), department, country, office location etc.

    The Teams Admin should be able to configure the metadata fields in the Teams Admin Center.

  2. Colour categories in Calendar

    It would be really useful for the Outlook colour categories to show in the Teams calendar. I rely heavily on these to make sense of my calendar with a large number of appointments and in the current release of calendar this will make me likely to still revert back to Outlook rather than use Teams for calendar management.

  3. Allow "Website" App for SharePoint.com URL's in GCC

    It was previously stated that it is difficult for Microsoft to add the "Website" app to Microsoft Teams in GCC due to concerns over compliance. If opening up to any URL is a concern or difficult item to address, how about allowing links to *.sharepoint.com? This would allow users in Teams to have a more integrated experience and allow use of applications that are coming from trusted sources.

  4. New calls ring while on call

    While in a call and another comes in on my DID number or to a call queue I belong to the call rings in my headset and the Teams popup shows the call. It should not ring in my ear - at the very least it should be a lessor intrusive tone. This is more like a call-waiting option that needs to be added. Call Waiting on/off (columns for DID and Queues). More than likely for a call queue you are not going to take another call while in a call. There is a slight possibility you would if it…

  5. Add live voting and polling to Teams Live Events

    With other platforms, you can ask participants to vote and or answer polling questions during the meeting/event. I would like to see functionality such as that available in Teams Live Events (and actually in regular meetings too).

  6. Incorporate Dante audio

    The integration of Dante enabled audio for Teams Rooms will provide network integration of large room audio systems. This will ease incorporation with existing facilities as well as facilitate new installations.

  7. 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

  8. Allow Teams Meeting Host to Toggle Meeting Entry Exit Tones Conference Bridge Settings

    As an O365 global admin there is no way to let my Teams users toggle these audio conferencing meeting preferences themselves.

    There is only a global setting in the Teams/Skype admin portal that lets me turn on/off these audio conference bridge settings for the entire tenant. My users need to be able to modify these settings like they could in Skype for business.

    If I was hosting a large Teams meeting and running a webinar you can see how disruptive entrance and exit tones would be as participants come and go. The problem is that I can't just disable them…

  9. View and manage delegated calendars in Teams

    We have had a number of executive assistants (a.k.a EA's / PA's / personal assistants) ask if they can manage a calendar which they have delegate/edit access to from within Microsoft Teams and it got me thinking, why can't they?

    We would like to have the option to schedule/view meetings across multiple calendars from within Microsoft Teams

  10. Create a separate chat window in Teams

    Instead of having to select the Chat category within teams and using the large teams screen, I would like to have a separate chat window as well as Chat Icon at the bottom toolbar.

  11. Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

    When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

    This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

  12. When I select the "Reply all with IM" in Outlook it only opens a Teams chat window with the sender, same as "Reply with IM"

    I turned on Teams as my default IM option from Outlook, but when I select the "Reply all with IM" it only opens a Teams chat window with the sender, same as "Reply with IM". Another colleague confirmed the same behaviour. Is this a bug, or is there something else I need to do in my setup for this to work correctly?

  13. Flag message for follow-up and automatically add them to to to-do

    Currently each message has:
    * save
    * thumbsup
    * Mark as unread
    * Copy link
    * Immersive Reader

    options available in the upper-right corner. I'd suggest adding another.

    Please could you add a "flag for follow-up" option. Clicking it should add it to a list of flagged messages that are exposed somewhere within Teams however the real value would come from giving us the option to have the message appear in Microsoft To-Do, thus the experience would be exactly the same as adding flagged messages from Outlook (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-flagged-email-f90c37b0-4453-4756-a6d5-e2ef8d33b395). When someone marks the task in To-Do as complete then…

  14. Easier Navigation

    If you click on a teams, you should land directly on the first channel.
    There should be a breadcrumb navigation for the channels in the teams, which can be optionally displayed between teams name and tabs.

  15. Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call

    When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.

    Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).

    1. Chat shoudl open as multiple pop up window like skype-helps to see multiple chat in parellel. Currently we cannot see 2 or more chats together . Need to click the person chat each time to swap between persons
    2.Teams should have a mimimze view . Currently it covers the entire desktop.and we cannot work on any other applications if teams is active window. So keep toggle between my tool and teams repeatedly to work. Atleast chat should be like a sparatee side vertical bar window like Skype . So that rest of the desktop area is uncivered and free…

  17. Bulk add team members via .csv file

    Since this item seems to have died on the vine with an incorrect answer ("We have this" - no you don't), trying to revive it. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18240376-improve-add-members-to-team

    Allow bulk adding of team members via .csv file.

    Team Owners should not have to create a Distribution list or be an administrator to run PowerShell to bulk add users to a team.

    It does not appear that Guest users can be a presenter in a Live Event meeting. This is a key functionality as not all presenters will be employees.

  19. Enable full SharePoint navigation

    I've linked to a communiction SharePoint homepage in a tab in teams expecting it to essentially be the full SharePoint experience but it cuts out the navigation and literally just shows the web parts of the home page.

    I want to be able to navigate the SharePoint as normal from here but from some reason Teams cuts this out.
