  1. Japanese IME bug - when typing roman alphabets with Japanese IME on

    Windows Japanese IME is quite smart and allows users to enter roman alphabets (not Japanese characters) if the user typing with Shift pressed - even if the IME is on. It's very useful and many Japaneses utilize this function. Since IME is on during it, the user needs to press Enter to confirm the input.

    Regarding input in Teams, sometimes IME turns off when I enter roman alphabets pressing Shift with IME on. Then, what happens is I press Enter without notice that IME turns off and submit the message accidentally. It's quite stressful.

    If I can choose not to…

  3. Allow us to remove users from chat group

    It’ll be perfect if we are able to remove people from a chat group instead of having to create a different one.

  5. Need to be able to remove people from a group chat.

    I'm assuming this was already requested but searching on Uservoice doesn't work all that well so I didn't find anything.

    There needs to be a way to remove people from a group chat (not from a team chat). If someone gets added by mistake, there is no way to remove them from a chat. We have to request people manually Leave the chat.

    In Skype, chats are considered meetings and I can just right-click someone to remove them. That functionality needs to be added to Teams as well.

  7. Allow More People to be in a Private Chat

    Currently the maximum number of people who can join a group chat is 50, it would be really useful to see this expanded! We have multiple use-cases within our organisation for larger group chats, particularly as people try to move away from Lync and Skype based chats.

  9. Adding Room devices to a Teams Live Event.

    During a Teams Live Event we can either take the TeamClients or a RTMP encoder as streaming source. It would be great to gain the ability to add SIP-endpoints or Skype Room system too.
    Being able to stream from any SIP device is the missing puzzle piece in an already great interrop solution.
    Imaging being able to use any video conferences room as Broadcast studio?

    I`m sure this would empower the Interrop soloution offer by Polycom, Pexip and BlueJeans a lot.

    Currently the only workaround is to use RTMP, but the workflow is to bad for the enduser.

    Time Clock in Shifts has been released! Team owners can enable Time Clock and export a time clock report. Team members can also clock in/out using the mobile app.

    Please see the following end-user documentation for more details:
    - https://support.office.com/en-us/article/clock-in-and-out-with-shifts-and-time-clock-ae7b676c-7666-46c7-9f68-85ff54acec8b

  11. Allow the hiding of embedded images, animated gifs, videos - like Slack does

    Users can paste/embed large, wild, distracting images, animated gifs, videos, etc, into the conversation window. That is fine, but recipients and senders should be able to later HIDE those, because they're ever-present and very distracting--until the conversation progresses long enough that the distracting images get scrolled out of view.

    Slack allows these to be hidden and it's a very nice feature.

  13. Mute

    Ability to control who has access to muting all other meeting participants.

    In other meeting platforms (Webex, GoTo Meeting), only the meeting host or delegates hosts have the ability to mute everyone else in the meeting. In Teams, everyone can mute all other participants and this is a concern for companies switching over from those platforms.

    Can we create an option where only the meeting host has the ability to mute all other participants?

    The option to allow only the meeting organizer to mute attendees is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:

    Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
    - Present
    - Mute All
    - Remove/Add Users
    - Admit Users from Lobby
    - Start/Stop Recording

    For more info, please see the documentation below:

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call

    When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.

    Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).

  16. Import Shifts schedule from Excel/CSV

    Shifts already has export schedule in UI. It would be great to have a option to import schedule as well, so it could be prepared in a external (legacy) system and then easily imported using UI, without need to develop code for upcoming Graph API.
    This would also make possible to create a shift "template" that could be easily uploaded to new Shifts / groups.

    We have released the StaffHub migration feature. This allows an IT Pro to run PowerShell cmdlets to move their StaffHub teams to MS Teams.

    Please see the following documentation for more details:
    - https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/expand-teams-across-your-org/shifts/move-staffhub-teams-to-shifts-in-teams

  18. Speed Dial for Teams IP Phones

    Currently the Teams IP Phones are not useable cause in order to dial a call you have to use the onscreen keyboard to search for a contact to see presence or to dial the call. Teams IP Phones need to be able to place certain contacts on a speed dial tab that will show certain contacts and their presence status on one screen. You should be able to glance at the speed dial tab to quickly see who in your team is online and dial them.

  20. Have end users change participant settings (lobby settings) for Teams meetings

    Just like with Skype for Business have a setting that allows our end users to change the participant settings for Teams Meetings as described here for Skype for Business: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/change-participant-settings-for-skype-for-business-meetings-9175e297-de5f-43b2-8e0f-85cc05e24986
