  1. Add Live Reaction Option in meetings

    This Live Reaction option (including "Thumbs Up") would be an easy way for Attendees to respond to the Presenter during meetings consisting of more than 15 people. This would prevent mass unmuting of microphones which causes the whole meeting to go out of order and most importantly loses time.

  2. outlook integrations for shifts

    Once a user is assigned a schedule within shifts the schedule should sync to their outlook calendar.

    It would also be nice to see Available shifts in outlook and be able to accept them (or at least link to the shift in teams to be able to accept)

  3. Turn Praise into trackable badge app

    We already love the Praise option, and we hope Microsoft can enable some tracking so people can see how many "praises" they get and of the various types. Find a way to make them into badges after so many of a certain type are received. Give a way to track this via analytics data.

    Thank you for your feedback. Many customers have asked for reporting capabilities around Praise, so this will be one of our top items in the list of things we want to add to Praise in the future.

  4. Shifts - Let non owner manage shifts

    Only team members with owner role are able to manage shifts.

    Would be helpfull to define shifts manager seperate from their team role.
    Shifts are also assigned by supervisors, which are only team member and assigning owner role is not desired.

  5. Lock the Video Spotlight

    In Skype for Business hosted meetings, there is a feature called "Lock the Video Spotlight" that allows you to choose a video feed that's displayed to all participants. This feature does not appear to be in the Teams client today, and it doesn't appear on the Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams Capabilities Roadmap.

    In some Teams meetings I want all my participants to just view one presenters video stream and not have the 4 participant split view. We need a way for the Teams meeting host to force their video to be prominent from the participants view.

  6. Adding Shifts as team tab

    With Shifts now in place in Teams, it would also be nice to have a channel tab for Shifts, for easy access within the channels themselves.

  7. Shifts - Delete/Remove Schedule for Team

  8. MS Teams Meeting Delegation

    For a meeting scheduled using Teams, it would be great to be able to delegate the organizer role so that someone else can reschedule the meeting during my absence. For instance for Executive Assistants or PTO.

  9. Notification of requests in Shifts should be more visible

    When working in Shifts on in the desktop client, new requests are not very obvious. Only some requests can be seen as a pulsating entry in the Monthly view for example, but that requires you to have the month in question in view. You need to open the Requests view in Shifts to see the requests.

    The obvious place for these notifications would be to have them visible in the Activity view in the client, where all other notifications are shown.

    What would also be nice-to-have is to have a specific notification easily visible in Shifts itself, so that as…

  11. Validate Copying Shifts from One Week to Another

    When copying a Shifts schedule from one week to the next, have a verification check that lets the user know if there is already a schedule published or in draft mode for the week being copied TO, that allows a user to either cancel or select a different week to avoid duplicate shifts being created for the same days/employees.

  13. Non Persistent VDI

    Support for Non-Persistent VDI. Currently Teams desktop App installs in the user App folder this means it can't be placed on the base image of non persistent VDI environments.

    Are there any plans to provide an alternative install for VDI. Currently we are installing Teams at login for VDI users as a work around.

  14. Call Queues should follow call forward settings

    I don't understand why this isn't already the default setting. When a user sets up call forwarding in their client calls that come from a Call Queue should be treated like any other call. It should forward to the number they want to receive the call on.

  16. Sign in to client with multiple accounts

    We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we'd need to be able to access teams directly.

    This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but a case where new O365 credentials have been created in another tenant for us. The app today only allows a single signed-in account at a time and that's a blocker.

  17. Merge chat, voice and video functionality with Skype For Business

    Allow chat, voice and video between person who has connected to Microsoft Teams and a person who has connected to Skype For Business. These two services should merge at some point. You should be able to join Skype for Business meetings from Microsoft teams app without launching Skype for Business app. You should be able to chat with people outside of your organization from Microsoft Teams app and etc.

  18. Use the MacOS notification system instead of the built-in

    The built-in notification system is very unreliable. Have them sent to the MacOS notification system so we can keep track of them in the notification center and such.

  19. Edit messages in teams

    Locking a message after 24 hours is counter productive and stupid.

    We need to be able to clean up channels, if an admin has to do it then thats fine but the channel is now flooded with garbage we need to get rid of and can't without deleting the entire channel.

    Dont try to be like slack, be different, be what business needs.

    Also cant see notes or edit documents on mobile.

  20. Invite non team member to a channel

    When working in Teams, theres the odd chance of needing to extend your team briefly. I.e create a channel where you can invite non team members to participate. Preferably non team member should be able to be outside the org also.

    At least two cases:
    1. Invite with full channel access.
    2. invite to just the one thread/discussion within a channel.
