  1. Open microphone

    Teams should show a user a large icon or image when their microphone is open, to avoid accidents.

  2. Audio feedback

    We use Microsoft Teams in Belgium for children of 6 years. It would be great if there was een option to send an audio file as feedback to a task they were given. Now you can only write the feedback but the children can not yet read it...

  3. text to speech

    It would be nice to have the text to speech reader option for chats or meeting notes. Ideally, if there was a button you could turn on and select where in the chat you'd like Teams to read the text aloud.

  4. Translate video recordings

    Some training meetings are recorded so others can view them later.
    Since we have various offices across the globe it would be handy if these video recordings could have translated captions to them.

    Not sure if it is easiest for the captions to be translated live
    OR
    whether the owner or participants could select to translate the captions after the meeting recording had been completed.

    This could help limit redoing training videos in different languages. Just an idea.

  8. Better managed of saved messages

    I just started reviewing my saved messages and once that number gets beyond 10, it is a bit unmanageable. I recommend a feature to add tags or further 3 or 4 word description to each. For example: I'd like to add a saved message: "Link to top 20 companies" so I can see at a glance what the saved entry is.

  9. Option to Disable Speech Bubbles

    Speech bubbles from Team members in the conference keeps on popping up on the lower right corner while I am trying to type. There should be an option to disable speech bubbles.

  10. More Security

    As a Financial Services Firm, we are required to follow the security guidelines below before we can utilize Teams in the Financial Services environment. I do not see a way to make all of these happen.

    Need to Password Protect the meeting
    Need a way to LOCK a meeting once it has started
    Need to be able to disable participants ability to record a meeting
    Disable the Chat feature
    No uploads allowed during meeting

    Hopefully some of these features can be added in the near future, or we will be forced to stay with Zoom.

  13. Save Statuses!

    It would be wonderful if we could save profile statuses so if I have created a status that I would like to leave on regularly, when I go to lunch, it would be nice to go to a "lunch" status but when I come back, switch back to my normal status and not have to retype all of it back in.

  14. recording controls in Teams meetings, editing controls in Streams

    Basic request: Please add basic options and controls when recording meetings in Teams to include those things we have all had in Skype/Lync for years, including the option to include/exclude the presenter's video
    with the screenshare in the recording, and the ability to Pause recording.

    Advanced request: basic video-editing controls in Stream, including the ability to markin/markout and cut. As an example, let's say I recorded a 30-minute meeting, but I want to cut out the first 92 seconds, I want to cut out several spans during the meeting, and I want to cut out the last 242…
