  1. Allow users to change their display name in a teams meeting

    Many people prefer an informal form of address, or use a nickname. It would be good to allow them to edit their name to a preferred form of address when on a Teams meeting.

  2. Make it possible to hide my thumbnail video

    Recent studies have shown that people in video chats are being emotionally impacted by seeing their own face in video calls. It’s distracting and people become more self critical. In Zoom, it is possible to remain in a video chat but mute my own video for me. I find it does help with meeting engagement and enjoyment. Pleas consider adding this feature

  3. Reactions

    Should add an "ew" reaction to messages and a shrugging emoji
    ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  4. Single class should not needed to be selected assignment tab

    When I click the assignments tab, it asks me to select a class. This is fine unless you only have one class, so it is just an extra useless step to click on your class and press next when there is nothing else

    Thanks, Teams is getting better and better

  5. Meeting control buttons while sharing a screen

    Presenters cannot see the control buttons or the participant list while sharing their screen. However, participants can? So for instance, if a participant raise their virtual hand, everyone can see it except the presenter. The presenter can't mute a participate while screen sharing. We use Teams to deliver workshops and lectures. We use sharing all the time and struggle to know who is trying to ask a question while sharing is happening. Teams should allow the presenter to see the participant list while sharing a screen, which is currently not an option.

    Another issue with file sharing is that Teams…

  6. Prioritize people showing video in meetings

    Teams used to prioritize showing people who were sharing video rather than those who were not sharing video. Now it seems totally random - there are icons instead of videos, even though others are sharing video. Revert back to prioritizing showing video in the 9 box instead of icons.

  7. During a meeting, always keep own name visible at top of "currently in this meeting" list

    During a large meeting, the list of people in the meeting can be several pages long. When I scroll down the list I would like my own name to always stay at the top - the reason for this is that I always want visual confirmation that my microphone is muted, even when the control bar hides automatically.

  8. Show who recently made edits in SHIFTS

    It would be very handy to see who has recently made changes in SHIFTS. Currently we have over 10 team owners, however it seems that someone edits the shifts which conflicts to what was already planned etc. If we could view who has made the edits like an edit history, it would come very handy.

  10. Notifications for new SharePoint News App in Teams

    It would be great if we could have notifications in Teams for new SharePoint Modern News pages that are getting posted into a SharePoint intranet for companies that want to leverage the Yammer App in Teams and integrate an App for their intranet news. This would allow the end-user to see all key communications and notifications in one place. This is similar to the Teams Yammer App Feature ID: 64015

  11. GTM has you beat with one feature. The ability to freeze the screen. This is very helpful in a sale when you need to jump form one slide.

    GTM has you beat with one feature. The ability to freeze the screen. This is very helpful in a sale when you need to jump form one slide to another that's not in sequence. The viewer doesn't see you've jumped. This is the only reason we stay with GTM.

  12. Integrate with libnotify notifications on Linux

    On Linux, global notifications are pretty much always handled with libnotify, across desktop environments. Rather than creating your own windows for notifications (that then need to be separately silenced from system notifications). This will also allow Teams to integrate with thins like Do Not Disturb mode, etc.

  13. Spread Large Gallery the width of the screen

    Very excited Teams has finally updated to see more than 9!

    The original gallery view is spread the width of the Teams screen. When switching to Large Gallery view, it shrinks the width of the screen to where there is two black rectangular spaces on each side. Please fit to the width of the screen for better visibility.

    Also seems to pick and choose who is being displayed although everyone has their cameras on.

    Would be great to have the speaker either pinned to one main area for easier visibility.

  14. Microsoft Voice Plan for a small business with only a few lines (2 or 3)

    The way I understand MS voice plans and routing groups is, each user must be licensed for voice in order to be in a response group.

    Imagine a small company that has 2 lines and 20 employees. The small business pays for 2 lines and the 20 people can only use line 1 or line 2 (waiting for a line to be free). the 2 DID numbers can call an extension to reach 1 of the 20 employees, but it will tie up just the 1 line.

    I feel that users should be able to be in a response group…

  15. Default channel for assignments

    I note that we can now put assignments into a particular channel. This is great. I have a class I share with a colleague, and we have it set up so that there is a channel for my stuff, a channel for their stuff and a general channel.

    Can I set it so that, by default, when I set a task, the assignments bot will default to using my channel; and for my colleague will default to their channel? Obviously, over-riding would be useful in some cases, but day to day, not having to remember to set that option would…

  16. simple, weighted, or meta-tagging in Files

    I would like to move from SharePoint to Teams, as everyone at my org finds Sharepoint difficult to navigate. We currently drop files in Teams, but I would like to move our entire file library to there, but in order to do so we must be able to tag files. Is there a simple way to do this, like using the people tagging feature but with my own custom made tags? Or, more expertly, do a weighted tag, like in a 100 page document about EV chargers in a latino community in Hillsboro, with the focus being on EV chargers,…

  17. Allow User to adjust how quickly Teams shows user as 'away'

    In Skype it was an option to customize settings around my status. Specifically the ability to set how long it would take for my status to show as 'away.' It seems if I'm working in other programs e.g. excel, word, web browser, email my status in teams can change to away rather quickly. A) I should be able to adjust how long this takes. B) Working in other programs should not make me appear away as I'm on my computer, just not in Teams.
