  1. Whiteboard Not Visible for Mobile Users in Teams Meetings

    Currently Whiteboard is not visible to mobile users. This is proving problematic for COVID-19 Quarantine classes. The workaround is to get the Whiteboard app and open the Whiteboard link while in a meeting, but this doesn't allow meeting control (e.g. the all-important self-muting) nor seeing video from meeting attendees/presenter.

  2. Set video or audio status

    It would be nice to be able to set video and audio capabilities based on current situation. I keep finding myself asking the question "Can you do video right now?" or "Can you do audio?" It would be nice to see at a glance with a phone or video camera icon next to their charm.

  3. Allow us to change our backdrop in video calls in lieu of blurring it.

    Other than blurring, let us select a backdrop to replace he real image from video behind us.

  5. Add multiple (and private) channels to a Teams Meeting Invite

    It appears that I cannot invite multiple channels to a Teams meeting and I cannot ever add a private channel to a Teams meeting

  11. Channels Categorization

    It would be useful if we were able to "flag" or "categorize" the Teams channels on the left-hand menu in customizable ways (similar to Outlook functionality) so that we could more easily navigate to files or discussions within the channel that were previously viewed.

  12. Add ability to add virutal backdrops

    I would like to add a virtual backdrop, not much unlike how you blur screens, so I can brand my company during my meetings and so I can block my background for privacy concerns.

  13. Disable and mute popup notification for group chats

    It's annoying to be part of group chats you did not want and the others continue talking and the right side of the screen is stacked up by notification pop ups. There is no mute options to these chats as well. Please provide option to mute these groups and allow disabling of popups

  15. Video Call Small window, while using other laptop app functions

    When we make video call, and want to work on other platforms(outlook, chrome, etc) - we can't see small window video screen as happens on Skype. This option will help a lot while navigating to different platforms without checking each time.

  16. Not able to open multiple files at the same time

    We have to work simultaneously on multiple files at some time. in Teams only one file can be open at one time, which makes file editing very limited in team. like in case i need to put v lookup in excel i need to open source excel file . and many other task for which we need another file to be opened.

  18. Displaying the clicked point during screen share without giving control


    • I want to point a specific area by clicking without requesting control during screen share. When I click the area, my name can be displayed on that area and the partner can see where I want to emphasize.

    • Clicked point must be displayed in both side's screen

  19. Notification popup when new message is received

    Hi Team,

    Please help to improve the notification popup, it's annoying that way it's current setup, it does the stack of the popups when multiple messages are received even from the same person. You can have the counter in the message and only show the latest message instead of showing all the messages in the notification.

    Also when the new messages notification shows up, it creates an instance of the application, and when you press the Alt+Tab, you can see the notification the same as the opened programs.

    Thank you,
    Vishal Prajapati

  20. Change default meeting options

    The default meeting options are not adjustable at this time. By default, the meeting options are set so that no one has to wait in the lobby and everyone has the presenter role by default. For each meeting, the meeting owner must manually adjust it. There is currently no option to adjust the standard. This is not pleasant for an education tenant.

    Make sure that it is possible to adjust the default meeting options.

    p.s. this is / was possible in Skype
