  2. 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.

  3. Delete Private Chat threads

    This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

    Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

    To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:

    1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
    2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
    3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in…

  4. Busy Options (Busy on Busy or Voicemail on Busy)

    Provide a functionalitiy similar to the one is SfB Server.

    Busy on Busy - Incoming calls will be rejected with a busy signal if the user is busy.

    Voicemail on Busy - Incoming calls will be forwarded to voice mail if the user is busy.

  6. Enable drag&drop for Shifts

    Enable/devolp the feature to drag&drop (move/copy) shifts in the integrated shifts-app in teams and allow multiple selection of shifts by holding the "CTRL" key.

  7. Guest Presenter in Team Live Event Meeting

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Channel only members & guests

    Channel only members enable collaboration with people outside the team in a specific channel, without granting them access to the team itself.  The channel member could be someone in your organization, or external to your organization (guest).

  11. Create alias mention groups, or mention DLs like @here (Slack has this)

    Can we @mention everyone in the team at once (group) instead of using @ for every single name?

    Also, can we use a different first name than the system because people goes by different name?
    It will help if we can copy and paste the @ mention for new conversation.

    Basically, I'm looking to be able to create an "@" alias for different groups of people within a team.

    Use Case:
    We have a team with 3 designers, 2 mobile devs, 2 strategists, and 2 web devs. It would be nice to have the ability to set up tags like…

  12. Public Channels

    Public channels will provide an outbound communication window for a team to engage with everyone in their organization.  These channels are accessible to everyone within the org, without the need to join.

    For instance, we may have a team that is private and deals with network issues. They may want a public channel where they can provide updates to existing issues or answer questions users may have. Otherwise, you may end up with two teams in this instance: a private network team and a public network team.

  13. Spell check in muliple languge

    It would be nice if it was possible to have the Teams desktop app in one languge and spell checking in multiple languge and at the same time customize date and time format.

    E.g. I would like to have Teams in English, have spell checking in English and Danish, and have date and time format in "Danish".

  14. Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

    Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

    This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

  15. View Pinned Chats in mobile app

    Showing pinned chats t the top of the Recent Chat list works great in the desktop app. It is especially nice for pinning named group chats. But this functionality doesn't appear in the mobile app. Users should also be able to view pinned chat groups in the mobile app.

  18. Guest registration for live events

    We have trouble introducing the live events feature if not every attendee is known. A solution would be, that additionally to the live event option "organization wide (registration required)" potential external viewer could register for the event, similar to the "Guest" registration for a team. So we can invite internal and external users and ensure that every viewer is known with name and email.

  19. Move channels into other teams

  20. Remind users to clock in and clock out depending on their shift.

    We use clock in and out times to calculate attendance bonus. But some users forget to clock out overnight, or forget to clock in at the start of their day.

    A notification like "Your shift starts in 5 minutes - Do you want to clock in?" and "Your shift ended 5 minutes ago - Do you want to clock out?" would be so helpful to remind users to do it.
