  1. Virtual background support for Linux

    Please add support for using a virtual background on Linux.

    Suggested initial level of support:
    * Support using a green/blue screen to determine where to replace the background (i.e., simple overlay).
    * Support using a user provided PNG or JPEG image for the virtual background.

    Future level of support:
    * Support blur or replace of the background without needing a green/blue screen (this would understandably require either a GPU for acceleration or a very high performance CPU).
    * Support using a MPEG or OGG video for the virtual background.

    Using V4L2 hardware acceleration (when available) would be preferred to doing…

  2. Self-selecting breakout rooms

    Organizers can create different break out rooms for different discussion topics, and meeting attendees can choose which one to go to (maybe by selecting a button at the appropriate time in the meeting)? This would be very useful for teachers or meeting organizers who want to give attendees choices without needing to preassign attendees or trying to sort attendees into the appropriate groups once meetings have started. In our case, we had Back to School Night for parents, and parents had a hard time using the different links to go to the presentations they wanted to see (similar to the…

  3. Default switched on versioning on Microsoft Lists in Microsoft Teams

    I suggest that versioning should be switched on by default for Lists as most end users don't know the SharePoint back end and won't think of switching it on.

  5. Ability to use BCC

    Making a Booking via the Teams app now has CC enabled. Can BCC also be added? We plan a lot of group based therapy in our organisation but using CC would create issues with local privacy laws, sharing cliënt e-mailaddresses to all adressees.

  7. See participants while sharing screen

    Currently, participants can see others while the screen is shared. But the presenter cannot. I would like it to be able to see participants while sharing my screen.

  8. Tagging in private channels

    Tags are finally out!

    But it works only for public channels in a Team. It would be great to have the same functionality for private channels.

    Use case:
    We are providing a DMS support for our organizational units in MS Teams.
    Each organizational unit has its own private channel where the support team and the organizational unit users are finding place. Private channels are used to avoid data leak. For the users it's difficult to mentrion all the people from the support team using @.

    So it would be greate to have the same functionallity for tags as public channels…

  9. Copy conversation link in a private channel

    I'd like to be able to copy a conversation link in a private channel, like you can for a public channel. This presently doesn't exist. I would imagine the link would appear as a dead link (not authorized), to anyone not in the private channel.

  10. Toggle video camera mirroring on or off for Teams calls

    ISSUE: Video feed is always mirrored during a Teams call, meaning that written text, such as on a whiteboard, is displayed incorrectly.
    SOLUTION: Provide a toggle option to not mirror the camera when in a video call.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The team is reviewing how best to address this issue and make this more user-friendly. Note: Your meeting attendees receive a non-mirrored video including the image of you and any text, whiteboards, etc. The image and video in your Call Monitor screen is shown to you only, as if you were looking in a mirror.

  11. Request Control button - move, add confirmation, or allow undo

    I've got tremors, and the Request Control button is way too easy to hit when I want to look at the chat or participants list

    Please move the button, add a confirmation, or allow the request to be withdrawn.

    Microsoft Staffhub was far easier to maneuver, easier to shift trade and view your work colleagues calendar. Often my reminders or notifications are behind or do not appear. I am. Unable to view my colleagues calendars and the phone ap needs to significantly improve

You should be able to see your colleagues shifts (assuming they are published of course) via the calendar or the time clock icon when youclick on a specific shift. If that’s not the case can you please file a bug with more details? we need more information investigate the root cause. Same goes for notification that should work without any issues.

  13. Allow the navigation bar, once edited to show different apps, to stay that way.

    The navigation bar now allows users to change which apps appear at the bottom, and which will appear once the navigation bar is swiped up. Each time the app is closed, the navigation bar resets to the apps already chosen by Microsoft.

    It's infuriating and no matter how many times it gets changed, it will change back to the original settings.

    Shifts should already be a standard on the navigation bar. It makes it very difficult for new users to understand and they tend not to know how to access Shifts until it is too late as there is no…

    Hello and thank you for your feedback. My name is Amir and I am a product manager in the Shifts team. I apologize for the bad experience and wanted to address your concerns below:
    1. Navigation bar resets: this should not happen and the configuration of your “app tray” should not change. Can you please report a problem and add a screenshot if possible?
    2. The admin of your company can create app policies that create the default view for your team on mobile and web. She/he can make sure that the Shifts app is pinned and visible for new users. More info can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-app-setup-policies
    3. Notification – We support basic Shifts notification (unless the user disabled them on her mobile phone) so I wanted to know what is the use case that you refer to exactly. Do you expect to see notification of a shift that…

  15. Support to host a meeting in a Private Channel

    Hi there, I've setup a private channel in a Team for supervisors only. I'd like to "host" the regular staff meeting in the private channel, but i can only select "public" channels. Can Microsoft add the ability to host Team meetings within a private channel?

  20. Create Planner tabs within Private Channels

    We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.

    What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?
