  4. Video conferencing recording can be improved

    We are trying to do Teams recorded video calls. Using a Video Conferencing room camera. The problem is even if you PIN in teams the video window to be full screen as the host, the recording comes back as just a quarter window. Which is disappointing as however it is being recorded it would make sense to PIN on the VC room also and the recording would come back as full screen, just portraying whatever is displayed in the room. Or is there another solution. Please can you advise how this can be done? As we would like to use…

  5. Please improve the crying-smiling emoji

    The animated crying-smiling emoji on MS teams looks evil. Take a few seconds to look at it and imagine this coming from its mouth: "MWAHAHAHAHAHA".

    Therefore, when I use it, I feel like I might seem passive aggressive to my colleagues.

    Compare it to the iPhone emoji, which wears a more light-hearted expression.

    I would be grateful if you could improve this element of the software.

  6. REMOVE ORGANISATIONS - INTEGRATE GUEST ACCOUNTS!!!!!!!!!

    REMOVE ORGANISATIONS - INTEGRATE GUEST ACCOUNTS!!!!!!!!!
    Having to have 7 in private browsing tabs open in order to be online in all your organisations at the same time is not a a valid solution to externally connected co-workers.

    There are many different suggested solutions to this major issue; it's undefendable that none of them have been implemented.

  7. Allow search for users based on organisation or role as Skype does.

    Allow search for users based on organisation or role as Skype does.

    Skype allows you to search for words associated with users, this is very useful for multiple members in large organisations. This is not available in Teams in any way as of yet and this is big oversight which should be added in!

  8. All Images at one place just like files tab in teams

    Need to have a Images tab just like files tab in the chat window where we can view all the images at one place instead of scrolling for images through the chat. It could really save the time

  9. Pop out window for files and other tabs

    When using teams i constantly need to switch between chats, teams and open files and tabs.

    I read that a new feature will be to pop out a chat conversation.

    I would suggest to also include a pop out for working in an excel or word file/ or even a different tab. This to continue working will browsing the teams channel for additional info.

    I need to update documents based on input from the team members and info from other files and tabs. I really need to pop out a working file to maintain overview and accessibility to the document.

  10. Permit the selection of ""Default Communication Device" for both audio in / out

    This permits the use of an external program to switch devices using Windows 10's built-in capability (e.g. via StreamDesk) mid call.

    enable @ mentions in files in the teams app so you can assign part of a document to people within the app rather than just online

  14. One chat for all

    When you get invited to another organisation's MS teams, you'll get a separate chat (for your guest account) for their MS teams.

    Please change this so we'll have one place for ALL our chats cross organisations.

  17. Not good for teams who work across areas or have multiple external stakeholders

    Teams work well for teams who work in strict silos but not so well for teams that integrate across the whole organisation and have ad hoc or many different stakeholders. E.g. we work in a governance team that splits into compliance, legal and risk and that splits into various sub teams but there is lots of cross integration. E.g. we create a team for legal but depending on the topic and the stakeholders, we would have different channels for the different areas (contracting, litigation, advisory). We don't want to add everyone to be members of each channel or be able…

  18. Teams for Linux starts typing text automatically after sharing your screen

    Start a call, share your screen, After exiting the call or even before you finish the call, try typing a sentence or copy pasting text with ctrl+c ctrl+v. You should see very weird behaviour with random keys being pressed. The issue disappears if you exit teams.

  20. Verify and set the notification setting for multiple channels altogether in the Teams app

    I would request a feature to verify and set the notification setting for multiple channels altogether in the Teams app, because we need to verify the setting for channels one-by-one at the moment and it’s going to be a hard work for admins when the channels get increased to a large number. So, it would be very convenient if we could check and set notification setting for multiple channels at the same time.
