  1. Teams Meeting organizer can force mute audio/video for attendees

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

  2. 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.)

  3. 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).

  4. 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…

  6. Real-time translation feature for Teams meeting

    It would be great that Teams could implement a real-time translation for conversations in a meeting and captioning feature like the Presentation Translator add-in for PowerPoint. This feature would be useful to have a Teams meeting with users in other countries.

  7. Issue with guests reentering Teams meetings and bypassing the lobby

    • Navigate to the Teams admin center
    • Navigate to the tab “meetings” then “meeting policies”
    • In there they should have a “global policy” that we can edit (they would just have to click it)
    • From here Navigate to “participants & guest” and change “automatically admit people” from “everyone” to “everyone in the Organization”
    • Then also change “allow dial-in user to bypass the lobby” to “off”
    If the Guest user be admitted at the first he joined the meeting, then he left the call and rejoin. The Guest will automatically bypass the lobby, this is concerning from…

  10. Keep Tab in Memory when Switching to Chat / Other Tab - Prevent Loss of Edits, Files, Login credentials

    Issue Summary:
    Switching from a Tab to Chat / Teams / Other Tabs causes the Tab to close, causing you to have to reopen the Tab (actually having to navigate to it again inside the team). This will reload the tap and all content before the Switching will be lost.

    Issues:
    1. Tabs open in Team gets reset - when switching between Teams in Team View
    2. Tabs reload - when switching between Chat and Team View
    3. Content (edits, files etc) on Tab gets lost (Happens both for to Issue 1 and 2)
    4. It makes you re-sign-in to…

  13. Adding Room devices to a Teams Live Event.

    During a Teams Live Event we can either take the TeamClients or a RTMP encoder as streaming source. It would be great to gain the ability to add SIP-endpoints or Skype Room system too.
    Being able to stream from any SIP device is the missing puzzle piece in an already great interrop solution.
    Imaging being able to use any video conferences room as Broadcast studio?

    I`m sure this would empower the Interrop soloution offer by Polycom, Pexip and BlueJeans a lot.

    Currently the only workaround is to use RTMP, but the workflow is to bad for the enduser.

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  15. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Turn off message preview in notification toast

    Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"

  20. Share video and audio during meetings

    During meetings we need to be able to share an online video with team members. Videos could be in Stream or Youtube or Vimeo or others. And this includes sharing the video sound. Currently we use normal Teams screen sharing, but all team members on the call can either hear or see, the video/audio are always asynchronous.
