  1. Allow the ability to remove or freeze the chat when the meeting is created through Calendar - and not just Channel.

    Currently it seems that students/participants in a teams meeting can have the chat feature removed only if the meeting event was created or attached to a Team Channel. I have noticed that events that are created only using the calendar feature do not provide the event creator with the ability to remove the chat feature. This would be great if we could have this added to the "Meeting Options" menu.

  2. Stop pop-up alerts meeting chat when attending new experience

    Tried to find this as an existing improvement but didn't.

    When attending a 'new meeting experience' with chat for that very meeting enabled in the window, it would be great if the originating MT application does not spark pop-up's for chat in that same meeting. Make sense? Thanks!

    BTW, loving MT and enjoying the fast-coming improvements.

  5. Enhancing Feedback on Submitted Assignments

    When students submit an assignment, I often find that students will hand in an incomplete assignment. It would be wonderful to have different feedback options. It would be great to submit feedback that a) does not require any changes, b) requires changes, or c) is incomplete.

  6. Not able to open Visio Files directly in teams

    Not able to open Visio Files directly in teams have to download the file to open the content. It would be great if we could open visio in teams directly.

  7. Mac performance when using video

    I use MS Teams for everything and I am on Teams meetings almost 8 hours per day. After the last update or two, I get terrible performance when sharing video. I don't mean poor performance, I mean absolute terrible. My CPU goes to 100% and the video is super choppy and people even say that my audio is choppy. Meetings without video are fine. Sharing screen is fine. But sharing video is unusable.

  8. Create a TAG using Outlook group

    I'd like to create a tag by using a Outlook group since there are over 300 names. It would take all day to create that TAG

  9. Enable teachers to not allow chat during instruction. This is incredibly disruptive and distracting for students whom are trying to learn.

    Please allow teachers and owners to discontinue the use of chat during instruction. It would be wonderful if there was a tool that would allow us to pause the chat so that we could pause while we were instructing, and then allow them to in order to respond or for a few free minutes.

  10. Need an auto reply for terminated employees

    I have several clients clamoring for an auto-reply or auto-response for terminated employees. In large companies, other users can chat inactive employees and have no indication they're no longer there.

    At least let Teams display any MailTips that are configured for a user, or add a new auto-reply feature for terminated users.

  11. Modify Live Video Screen

    While in a live chat today, I noticed that the "Need Help?" button was just left of the "Leave" link box. Reading it literally, I read in my mind, "If you need help, Leave." I know this is unintentional. I just wanted to share my thought.

  12. stop members from starting a chat with another member

    I have a channel with a rather large group of people. I would like to disable members from being able to contact other members through this channel. It's meant to be just a virtual board with no comments, but members are able to contact other members that don't want to be contacted. Maybe even have it so the owners can hide the names and emails of the team members...?

  14. Meetings should show number of those present out of total number in team

    Teams meetings should show number of those present out of total number in team. This will be useful in the school setting especially.

  17. Enable synchronisation of Teams DDI to Azure AD Office Phone

    All users Teams number assignments are visible in the Teams Admin portal. They do not however synchronize from there across to any AAD fields.

    Organisations should be able to sync Teams numbers to Office/Work Phone in Azure Active Directory to ensure colleague contact information stays relevant in Office, Azure & any potential other connections (Workday / Snow / Salesforce etc)

  18. Files App in Teams NEEDS improvement.

    The Files App in Teams is useless. Why is it just one massive running list of all files with no organization. The lease you could do is just link the Files App in Teams to OneDrive. The ability to drag and drop files on teams is a need when organizing the files as well.

  19. Add registration for live events and feedback at the end of the live event

    Add registration for live events:
    When people are invited by email or on a web site posting, to ne able to register and reserve space.

    Add feedback at the end of the live event:
    At the end of the event, feedback form should be able to collect feedback for the event.

    Very important and my company uses other tools (WebEx, Zoom etc) because of lack of those features.

    Thank you
