  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Delete files shared in chat

    Files shared in Chat are stored to OneDrive, but there is no way to delete file from within Teams. When file is deleted from OneDrive, it is (of course) no longer available and the individual gets a "Sorry, we couldn't find you file" error.

    I would like to remove the shared file entry from the Teams chat.

  5. Allow rearranging contacts and groups

    The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

    I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

  6. Enable Remote control for external contacts(Guests) when you share your screen

    Right now, if you have a Meeting with someone that is not part of your Tenant, you only can share your screen to present what are you seeing at your screen; but if you want that the guest could take remote control of your screen this cannot be performed.

    Please enable remote control for external contacts (Guest) in order to use Teams instead of Join.me or Teamviewer

  7. separate chat window

    For better privacy, I would like to have a separate window for each chat, instead of having all the conversations on the home page.

  8. Have multiple Teams windows

    I want to be able to have multiple Teams, chats, etc popped out at the same time. I know this is being explored for Chat, but can we pop out Teams as well?

  10. Multiple Time Zones in Shifts

  12. Stop Mobile Teams Meetings from Being Interrupted by Mobile Phone Calls

    When in a Teams meeting on Mobile Teams and we receive a mobile phone call to the mobile phone line, we are completely disconnected from the meeting. The mobile phone line call should only be shown as a toast and soft ring in the background instead of completely disconnecting us from the meeting (quite like getting a second call while on your mobile phone - your current call doesn't disconnect but you hear a soft ring in the background and have the option to reject or accept the call).

  13. Pull up Teams Contacts from Desk Phone

    We can see that new MS Teams accounts are now able to pull up / sync contacts from Outlook. What we would like to have is a feature on (Android powered with MS Teams app installed) Desk Phones that will be able to pull up MS Teams contacts so that the contact information will show when a contact calls in.

    We believe that this feature addition should be done on Microsoft's side, specifically for Desk Phones running on Android. However, we can see that this feature is not yet available even for Teams mobile (both on Android and iOS) and…

  14. Recover shifts data

    Unforntonaly shifts data is not recoverbable at the moment.
    We will like that you could have a recycle bin or a versions options available for Microsoft shifts.

    Also the we could have a retention policy for Microsoft shifts.

  15. Stop Recording on Exit

    We need an option/pop-up to stop recording on meeting exit. At the moment if someone who is recording a meeting exits the meeting, the recording continues forever. What's worse is that the person who started the recording is the only one who can stop it. I "get" that part of the reason why only one person owns the recording is because of the need to associate the recording with a particular Microsoft Steam account... so what I propose are two things:

    1. On exit, if you are recording, you are given a prompt to also end recording or leave it…

  16. Show if call forwarded or from a call group in call history / missed calls

    If an incoming call is being forwarded from another user or is being forwarded as part of a call pickup group, this is displayed in the popup call notification, however it is not displayed in the users call history. The calls just show as a missed call.

    This is causing confusion for users as they see these forwarded/call group calls as missed calls and then try to return the call.

    An additional column or a different 'Type' for these calls would resolve this issue.

  17. Transfer to voicemail option

    In Skype for Business and most other phone systems, you can select to transfer a caller directly to voicemail (receptionists use this all the time). Teams does not have this option. It is very important for folks to not transfer to a ring-ring-ring experience if they simply need to leave a voicemail.

    Thanks for your feedback. The transfer to voicemail option is currently in testing and will be released soon.

    Note: Direct calls to a users voicemail is a separate feature which is planned. We’ll update when we have more details to share on this one.

    Thanks.

  18. multi-pane / multi-window support allowing view of presentation and Teams / channels at the same time

    One of the big faults with Teams is that in a meeting you cannot easily access files / conversations / channels and keep the presentation / meeting in focus. The ability to separate the meeting window from the Teams interface would greatly enhance meeting interaction and allow access to additional information quickly and easily for team members on the meeting.

  19. Converting space to non breaking space

    It seems that recently Teams starting converting space characters to non breaking space characters. The text with non breaking spaces doesn't work the same, e.g. a search query that not fails.

  20. Inactive Team Policy

    Currently, Teams automatically hides Teams which have not been used in more than 45 days (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&featureid=48621). Be able to create a policy in the TAC or in the client that can both set the number of days to hide inactive Teams (I.e. 7 - 100) and also be able to disable this altogether so inactive Teams are never moved to hidden Teams.

    Requested in TC article here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Automatic-hiding-of-Microsoft-Teams-in-more-than-45-days/m-p/767541#M35285
