  2. Users added to team line removed

    In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
    As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
    We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.

  3. Group Voicemail

    We have a number of teams that use a group phone number, and hence would like to have a group voicemail box so that anyone in the group can access the voicemail

  4. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

    The presence of Teams users has switched to a subscription based model that brings near real time updates! Most of the time we expect presence updates to be reflected in a matter of a few seconds. It’s true for all scenarios like user’s calendar update, the Teams app status, or what the user decides to set manually. Enjoy!

  5. Fix “tildel hjerte”

    The is a mistake in the Danish translation of like. “Tildel hjerte” means “give heart” and does not make any sense, since the ‘like’ is a thumbs up..
    ‘Like’ is adopted by the Danes, so just use that instead...

  6. Allow anonymous guests to chat within a meeting

    Currently, if a guest joins a meeting anonymously, it seems they cannot chat with each other or the organiser.

    If someone wanted to use Teams to webcast to a wide range of users who mostly don't have a Teams account, and may be private citizens rather than organisations, the only option for them to join is anonymously.

    But they then can't use the Chat feature to ask questions (which would be preferable to them using audio on a busy webcast).

    Or is this feature already planned in and coming soon...?

    Thanks,

  7. Integrate Microsoft FindTime

    Would love to have the ability to post a Microsoft FindTime poll within a Team for scheduling meetings within the group. It's already a plugin for Outlook, integrating it with Teams could allow a quick FindTime poll with the members of the team, rather than having to manually select each member of the team every time a poll is needed.

  9. Be able to choose different device for ringing

    When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
    Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.

  10. Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

    When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

    This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

  11. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

    Status is automatically set to Presenting in Teams when screen sharing is started during a Teams meeting.

    For other suggestions mentioned in the comments, please follow the following UserVoice items:

    - Mute notifications when on a video or audio call: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40228330
    - Respect focus assist: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16950997

    Thanks.

  12. Add "What's happening today?" Status

    Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.

  13. Flashing Icon in task bar for unread messages

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  14. Small missing detail from Norwegian translation

    In the teams application it says "go to store" when you press the dots on the left hand menu, as well as the main title in the store is "Store".

    It probably should be translated and implemented?

    ("Butikk", "gå til butikk") or something like it.

  15. Teams notifications have stopped working for current chat

    Microsoft Teams has stopped showing notifications for your 'current' conversation (the currently selected chat in Teams, where the history is visible). Notifications appear as normal for other chats, but if you get further responses to the 'current' chat - and the window is either hidden, minimised, or closed completely and running the background - then you get no notification (toast, or flashing in the taskbar) and the new conversation isn't bolded in the left sidebar of Teams where the chats are listed.

  16. Ability to Mute a Conversation Thread

    Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

    Muting of conversation threads is available to the public. Just like muting a chat, turning off notifications to a channel conversation will stop you from receiving updates for that specific conversation.

    To turn off notifications for specific conversations

    • Go to the beginning of a conversation in a channel
    • Go to the top right corner of the original message in the conversation thread and select More options … > Turn off notifications.
  17. Email notification for messages I've already read

    Please stop sending email notifications about chat messages I've got that I've already read!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Screen sharing within chat

    I need to be able to share my screen with a coworker at a different location WITHIN a chat. I also need my coworker to be able take over my computer within chat. Right now it seems you can only share your screen during a meeting.

  19. delete recorded meeting

    There is no way to delete a meeting that has been recorded in a channel. There have been a couple of times that I have started and ended one realizing I was in the wrong channel or that I didn't give it a title or topic name.

  20. Allow service numbers from a SIP trunk via Teams Direct Routing

    Could you please add support for service numbers (usable with auto attendant or call queues) that come from a SIP trunk connected via Direct Routing? It doesn't make sense to support BYOT with Teams Direct Routing but not having the possibility to use the numbers on the SIP trunk as service numbers for an auto attendant or a call queue.
