  1. Allow iPad/iOS users to change their background on a Teams call

    At the moment iPad/iOS users cannot change their background during a MS Teams call. It would be great if we get that functionality available for all users so we can use theme backgrounds during meetings.

  2. Disable chat temporarily during meetings

    Please allow meeting organizer to temporarily disable chat during a meeting.
    We often have people so focused on the chat, they don't pay any attention to the actual meeting.
    We'd love to be able to turn off chat at the beginning of the meeting, and then turn it back on at an appropriate point.

  3. Teams Meeting organizer can force mute audio for attendees

    Give meeting organizers the ability to force mute audio for all attendees in the meeting options page. Attendees should not be able to un-mute their audio with this option set.

  4. 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.

  5. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  6. Load picture as background instead of blur background in Teams video chat

    How about loading a picture as a defined background instead of just blur the background during a Teams video chat?

    So, for example, I could load an all black picture as the default background to keep the focus on me.

  7. Teams pop-up notifications no longer display on top of (fullscreen) applications

    Since a recent change in Teams notifications no longer display on top when working in fullscreen mode. Most collegues work with a Remote Desktop client. Teams they run in the background on their local machine.
    When you would receive a message or a call Teams would pop-up a notification on top of the RD-client. Since a recent update this no longer happens. You have to minimize te RD-client and other applications that run on your local machine, because they all show on top of the Notification.

    I think this is caused by an update where Teams notifications now are using…

  8. Toggle for presenter view in presentation share during meetings

    The presenter view when sharing a PowerPoint presentation is a great feature addition, however some users are finding this a hindrance and would like to disable it for their meetings. I can't see any way of doing this at present. Could a toggle be added to enable/disable the presenter view so that organisers/presenters have the choice of whether they use it or not.

    Many thanks!

  9. Introduce Freedesktop dbus notifications for Linux

    Teams currently uses a custom notification which can't be controlled, and it breaks in tiling window managers such as Sway or i3. (Steals focus and position is always on the middle of the screen.)

  11. Screen Sharing with 3440 x 1440 Resolution shows as a black screen

    Screen Share with recent Teams build for 3440 x 1440 resolution shows a black screen. Perhaps add an ability to see resolution or zoom or select what needs to be shared with the user.

  12. Microsoft Graph presence API

    currently you can only query the present status via the API interface.

    It would also be very important for providers who want to dock their tools to MS teams that the present status can also be set via the API interface.

    is there any information about when this will be possible via the API interface?

  14. Voicemail on busy

    When someone calls me, either internally or externally, and I'm on another call, the default behavior should send the call to voicemail after popping a notification and perhaps a subtle ring. This business of ringing more than once when I'm on a call is not helpful.

    Admins can now set Busy Options to the value “unanswered.” When this option is chosen by the Teams Admin, calls will be routed according to users unanswered call choices in the Teams Settings | Calls menu. A user can opt to have incoming callers to leavethem a voicemail when they are already on a call.

  16. Speaker attribution in captions

    During any Meeting in Teams, it could be great if it provides speaker username along with Captions while scrolling and it will be great if those captions within meeting group as saved as history(ex: char history). so, that it will be easy to recollect discussion happened by reading all captions without voice help& without anybody's help.

  18. Approvals app - Link files to Approval Request

    The new Approvals app allows attaching files; however it would be great to be able to link a specific file or files, or even say a folder of files, to an approval request. Ideally, the specific versions of the files that were part of the approval request should also be tracked and users should receive an information message when they try to update a file that has been approved.

  19. Introduce breakout room functionality

    We have a business requirement for breakout rooms with live events. The idea is pretty simple - we plan to use live events to host internal staff training webinars and as part of that, at times we will ask for small groups of people (typically 4-5) to go away into a breakout room and come back to the group with their answer/idea.

    We would like to see this functionality be introduced to Microsoft Teams for not only live events but also video calls. This would provide feature parity with pre-existing tools such as Zoom, WebEx and many more which would…

  20. Update Teams using the latest Electron/Chromium version

    The current version of Electron used to compile Teams is VERY out of date and is using Chromium v69, while the production version of Electron currently is using v83.

    Using older Chromium versions in environments that have security audits can cause problems since it has the potential to flag CVE's that are unpatched in older Chromium versions. Not to mention, newer versions have various bug fixes and performance enhancements.
