  1. 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.

  2. Maintain Team order across clients

    Customizing the order of Teams in the left nav is great, nice drag/drop. It would be great if that order is maintained across clients so it doesn't matter if I'm using the desktop client or web client, I'd get the same ordering.

  3. Allow for 4-digit transferring and conference dial-out

    While a 4-digit dial plan and normalization works for regular dialing out via Direct Routing, transferring to a 4-digit number or getting called by a 4-digit extension for a transfer always fails. This also applies to dialing out from a conference call.

    While this is considered a known issue, I want to emphasize that this is a deal-breaker for my organization using this for the time being. I would imagine I'm not the only one as other organizations are using 3-4 digit extensions that would be affected by this in their direct routing scenarios.

  4. 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.

  6. Hide or Collapse the bulky "Reply" option in Teams Channel threads

    There is a lot of wasted space by the "<-- Reply" bar that shows under each message posted in a Teams channel. It would be more compact to make this something that appears when hovering over a message.

  7. 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.

  8. Rearrange & lock sequence of meeting attendees

    Need the ability in video / conference meetings to allow a leader / participant to rearrange, set priority, and even lock the sequence of attendees so that only certain attendees ever claim the large four attendee frames in the app UI. This could be used to override the feature in Teams that automatically rearranges the Windows based on who spoke last. ...The automatic arrangement can be a cool feature in small meetings. But in large meetings especially where rooms of people join, the admin needs more control of the meeting windowing experience. Not all attendees would need to be sequence…

    Shifts - Ability to Add Types of Activities and Customize the Break Time.

    Is there a way to customize the length of breaks. Currently it is showing as "Any". Also are we able to add other activity tasks?

  13. Within Chat's "Recent" tab, include day of week beside the MM/DD date for past conversations

    The "Recent" tab of Chat lists past conversations. The dates for these are given (on my machine) in MM/DD format. I would find it helpful if an abbreviation of the day of week were included. For example, "1/10" would read "Thu 1/10."

    I remember the day of week better than raw date numbers. Such a feature could help me provide context to the conversation without having to pull up what day of the week the date corresponded to.

  14. remove /

    Not exactly sure where this goes but I had a group chat saved with '/' in it and couldn't find it. Didn't realize that I shouldn't have saved it with the ' in it since it's a reserved character. Then don't allow a group chat to be named as such.

  16. How can everyone have access to a channel but doesn't mean they have to be on the team

    We use Office 365 products and our company of 30, give or take, are accustomed to submitting requests to "groups" like Admin or Shareholders. It's an easy way for anyone to address the groups without bothering anyone else.

    This is problematic since we set up a team "Admin" but everyone has to be in the group to message the actualy Admin team of 2. But then, everyone is bothered with requests that are meant just for the 2 admin folks.

    We could just use a direct chat. yes. But it would be nice for all requests to Admin to flow…

  18. activity feed user name truncate

    In the Activity Feed, the user name is truncated too shortly. Our usernames have prefixes, and can only see them, therefore, we cannot identify who's who. THere's the con on the leftm but it's also not enough. Please have a look at the attached screenshot.
    Could you increase a bit the displayed name ? like 8 or 10 chars ?
    Thanks and regards!

  19. Need a recently used GIFs and emojis tab

    Would like for the ability to see recently used GIFs when hitting the GIF button. Sometimes you want to use the same reaction GIF and don't want to search for it each time.
