  1. Add support to communicate with Skype users by Skype IDs and Phone numbers

    Currently we are unable to add to our contacts Skype Users that use phone numbers. It would be easier to find skype contacts also with we could search for them by Skype IDs.

  2. Font Size of Teams main window page

    Change font on the main teams display page. You can click the A with the pencil but it only makes that chat larger and you have to pop out the chat to see the larger font. When you assisting other reps in a teams room its hard with such a small font and you cannot pop out team rooms/ please make it that we can adjust this font displaying full screen does not make any difference.

  3. "Speed dating" feature where you can automatically create micro-breakout rooms to get quick introductions done before meeting?

    It would be nice to have a quick teams introduction where everyone could see and say hi to everyone on the call - a la speed dating function. This could be something that could be timed from 15 seconds up to 2 minutes and would automatically cycle through all attendees (up to a certain amount).

    Just a cool feature for businesses (and also speed dating haha).

  4. Chat Grouping

    Allow multiple "pinned groups" e.g. a named pinned group like
    Internal Team
    External Team
    Customers North
    Customers South
    etc

    having pinning is good but allowing multiple groupings would be better to allow segragation of customers and teams

  6. Enable "atomic swap" of current General channel with a different channel

    Teams change over time; the use of channels change over time. While the membership of the General channel may remain useful, its actual use as a "general" channel for a team may become... less than useful. The specific example: a large team is split into multiple teams in different organizations with different management. The former coworkers still have a strong social affinity and chatter away on "General", but the "general" elements of the Team really only apply to the people who remained with the original pre-reorg reporting structure.

    The strong popularity of https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18968953-rename-general-channel is directly relevant here. I understand that…

  7. I wish the Teams window (for Mac) could be sized smaller than currently allowed especially for video chat.

    I wish the Teams window (for Mac) could be sized smaller than currently allowed especially for video chat. So one could size the window as a column on the side. (like zoom.)

  8. Timekeeper tone during meetings

    Option for presenter to add timekeeper tone. Tone goes off at the halfway mark, 5 min mark. Should be checkboxes for each interval and custom option. This would help calls from running over.

  10. Group chat a contact list in one step

    Be able to send a group chat to entire contact group list, without creating a new chat and adding each person individually. As a receptionist, I often have to message entire teams to see who is available to take a call, or relay information quickly.

  11. Notify attendees of a recorded Teams meeting when the owner changes rights

    When a Teams meeting is recorded in Stream, the attendees can access to the replay. Some of them would like to activate a notification if the owner of the record decides to grive access rights to other people.

  12. Improve Notifications for Multiple Orgs

    My coworkers and I are in multiple orgs . When we are in Org A, we don't see notifications for chats in Org B. The bubble that shows in the Org selection drop down only shows for in channel notices, and they are not fast enough. We need better visibility for activity in other orgs to make teams a success please!

  13. Include Email Subject in 'Reply with IM' from Outlook

    In Skype For Business if you 'Reply with IM' to an email from Outlook, the Subject line will carry over to the Skype chat giving context to the message that you send. It will also provide a link to the rest of the email chain (As seen in the screenshot below)
    Currently in Teams this does not happen. If you 'Reply with IM' to an email using Teams, it just opens a new chat window to the recipient without any context that links it to the email.

    It would be great for this functionality to be replicated in Teams as…

  15. Send a nudge in specific messages sent through the chat

    Create the ability to send a nudge on a specific message that was not addressed by the receiver. The sender would be able to call attention to that message by the message being highlighted once they click on the nudge option for that specific message.

  18. PSTN: Use tags in Teams to select who is in the call queue

    Use the Tags feature to add users to a call queue so the entire team is not in the queue only people with a specific tag in the Team will receive calls.
    This way managers of a Team can select who is in the PSTN call queue without being in it themselves.

  19. Items that can be checked in the audit log of activities in online meetings

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    オンライン会議中のアクティビティを確認する監査ログの項目について
    Items that can be checked in the audit log of activities in online meetings


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の Microsoft Teams の既定の設定では、オンライン会議中の参加者が他参加者に対し、削除 (強制退出) させる操作が可能です。
    このアクティビティは、監査ログにおいて、該当する項目が無く確認が行えませんため、オンライン会議中の参加者の削除 (強制退出) の項目追加を希望します。

    According to Teams’ current default settings, participants in an online meeting can delete (remove by force) other participants.

    This activity does not show up in the log of activities from the meeting, and so we would like such an item (user was removed by another user) to be added to the logs.
