  1. Toggle for presenter view in presentation share during meetings

    The presenter view when sharing a PowerPoint presentation is a great feature addition, however some users are finding this a hindrance and would like to disable it for their meetings. I can't see any way of doing this at present. Could a toggle be added to enable/disable the presenter view so that organisers/presenters have the choice of whether they use it or not.

    Many thanks!

  2. Approvals app - Link files to Approval Request

    The new Approvals app allows attaching files; however it would be great to be able to link a specific file or files, or even say a folder of files, to an approval request. Ideally, the specific versions of the files that were part of the approval request should also be tracked and users should receive an information message when they try to update a file that has been approved.

  4. Seriously there is no help file ?

    I read your 14 page "user guide". This is a sales pamphlet. It shows the website for Teams help, but that website is awful and has almost xero INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DO TASKS IN TEAMS. Not videos, not descriptions of features. We need help. Like this:
    To save a file, select file menu> save.

  5. Teams pop-up notifications no longer display on top of (fullscreen) applications

    Since a recent change in Teams notifications no longer display on top when working in fullscreen mode. Most collegues work with a Remote Desktop client. Teams they run in the background on their local machine.
    When you would receive a message or a call Teams would pop-up a notification on top of the RD-client. Since a recent update this no longer happens. You have to minimize te RD-client and other applications that run on your local machine, because they all show on top of the Notification.

    I think this is caused by an update where Teams notifications now are using…

  7. Additional Together mode templates

    I'd love the ability to add further Together mode layout templates.

    Maybe you could add your own buildings auditorium.

    Muppet Mode would add some fun to Friday gatherings.

  8. Update Teams using the latest Electron/Chromium version

    The current version of Electron used to compile Teams is VERY out of date and is using Chromium v69, while the production version of Electron currently is using v83.

    Using older Chromium versions in environments that have security audits can cause problems since it has the potential to flag CVE's that are unpatched in older Chromium versions. Not to mention, newer versions have various bug fixes and performance enhancements.

    During any Meeting in Teams, it could be great if it provides speaker username along with Captions while scrolling and it will be great if those captions within meeting group as saved as history(ex: char history). so, that it will be easy to recollect discussion happened by reading all captions without voice help& without anybody's help.

  17. 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

    We’re happy to announce admins are able to change the default value of ‘Who can present?’ in Meeting Options via the new parameter, DesignatedPresenterRoleMode. For more information, please visit: https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/meeting-policies-in-teams or https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/policy-packages-edu

    In addition there is a new default Teams meeting policy to enforce lobby in meetings for tenants who have not modified the default meetings policy. With this change, meeting organizers can define/fine-tune the lobby experience via the Meeting options feature. For information on meeting options, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e

  19. Disable chat temporarily during meetings

    Please allow meeting organizer to temporarily disable chat during a meeting.
    We often have people so focused on the chat, they don't pay any attention to the actual meeting.
    We'd love to be able to turn off chat at the beginning of the meeting, and then turn it back on at an appropriate point.

  20. linux screen share red outline

    On windows, if we do a screen share, there is a red outline around the screen. However on teams for linux there is no red outline and it can be confusing which screen we are sharing.

    Also, thank you so much for teams on Linux!
