  1. need to be able to make formatted tables and use images in meeting scheduler

    Currently only colored fonts and bold/italic options are available to format the body of a Teams meeting set using the Teams Application. Need to have the ability to create richer formatting.

    • More multiple function

      voice qu、ality is good but function is limited or intuitively hard to use. For example, during global call with a large audience I want to get voice question but at the same time want to receive text questions. Currently I have to switch windows.

        • Prevent recordings from being stopped inadvertently

          Any participant can stop the (only) meeting recording. Please add a function to prevent this.

          • Show newer posts in meeting chat first

            While in a meeting and with the chat pane open, the newest posts appear at the bottom and the list scrolls as new posts come in. If I navigate away from the meeting window, perhaps to look at a document stored in the Team library, and then come back to the meeting and open the chat, the window shows the oldest posts first. To catch up, I need to scroll down until I reach the latest. For chat-heavy calls, that can take a while.

            • Mic sensitivity change

              Give us the ability to change the sensitivity on our mic's. There are too many things being picked up on calls. Hot mic is constant. Have the system be similar to how TeamSpeak or Discord is.

              • Cloud Video Interop - Confusing Conference IDs

                All of the 3rd party providers append VTC conference numbers at the bottom of the message (see below for an example).

                These are VERY easy to confuse with the regular conference ID. Please, do some simple modifications to your template to avoid this confusion. When users scan for "Conference ID" in the message, there are now 2 conference IDs, one that doesn't apply to most of them. Simply making the second one say "VTC #" and remove the word conference would help significantly.

                --

                Conference ID: 148 531 38#

                  • Mute microphone using the spacebar

                    When on a voice conversation, configure it so that you can quickly mute and unmute the microphone using the spacebar.

                    This would be much quicker than having to exclusively use the mouse to unhide the toolbar and then having to click on the mute/unmute button.

                    • Teams Desktop app share desktop issue

                      When using Teams desktop app the share desktop feature is not available during a meeting. This occurs when joining meetings sent/hosted by external parties. Also, the messages sent from the external party during these meetings can not be viewed. There is not option to see or send any messages. Only the external party had these features available.

                          • Join meeting now in progress

                            Add one click button to meeting to send out emails to invited users with something like "join meeting now in progress". This is extremely useful for the organizer who is already in the Teams Meeting as it doesn't require to minimize the meeting and contact the user via another window application. WebEx meetings have this functionality and in the past I found that many people end up joining meetings via that email when it is sent.

                            • "teams meeting" @mention

                              I have set up a Teams Meeting Series for my regular project call. After an occurrence I want to share the meeting minutes (using OneNote) with all participants.

                              Instead of typing in each participant individually with @name1, @name2 it would raise efficiency significantly to have a similar functions as @channel in a Teams channel, e.g. @chat or @meeting.

                              • More Polite Messaging to Users

                                A change to the messaging when waiting for others to join meetings should be considered. The Current "You are the only one here" message that displays on screen when you are the first to join a meeting is needlessly harsh and a bit depressing. Something along the lines of "No one else has joined yet" or "Waiting for others to join"is more friendly; especially since this is a tool which enables people to work remotely so they may already be feeling a bit isolated.

                                • Meeting notes storage for Meetings started via Outlook

                                  If I create a meeting via Outlook and take notes (and the meeting is associated with a team) how do I access the notes in the future? I can see them in the old meeting but I would like to reference them from a team in the future.

                                  Where are meeting notes stored for non-team Team meetings?

                                    • repeating meeting - edit single instance

                                      When I have a repeating meeting, I cannot edit one instance to reschedule or cancel. I don't understand why Outlook has so much better functionality. Aren't both tools written and supported by Microsoft? You have a full-scale prototype called Outlook. You should use it.

                                      • Give the quality control for screen sharing

                                        I would like to have more control over the quality of screen sharing. Just like teamvieweer where you can control the quality so that if internet is not in good speed, we can easily go down to low quality and get faster speed.

                                        • Live Events Mute/Unmute Participants for Q&A

                                          Allow the producer to unmute/mute participants if they ask a question. So the experience could be, a person asks a question in Live Events, the Producer selects them and announces "We have a question from Bob" and then unmutes Bob and allows Bob to verbally ask his question.
