  1. Always show Display Name for participants on their video window

    At present, Microsoft Teams only shows each participant's Display Name when moving the mouse over the Microsoft Teams screen / video windows. However, as soon as we move the mouse away from the Microsoft Teams window, and stop moving the mouse, after approximately five (5) seconds, everyone's Display Name disappears from the screen.

    Please correct so that the Display Name is always showing, or provide an option so that we can always show the Display Name.

    During certain names, it is important to show each participant's Display Name.

  3. Split chat+call from Teams as a separate window!

    It is very difficult to work in one window. Typically I'm calling and presenting. If I have to open file in Teams to present I start to search in Teams files, open it and in panic mode (people are waiting!) return to call, that is open somewhere in Teams. Disaster. Also alt+tab feature (switching between windows inside Teams) is not working!

  5. The value of [Report] is different for each management center.

    There is a difference in the value of [Report] that can be output by Teams admin center and [Report] that can be output by Microsoft 365 admin center.
    Please publish or correct the information.

    Please allow users to customize the notification sounds (as if you're customizing the notification/ringtone from your "contacts").

  9. Meeting Settings - Make "Email Invitation" settings available per domain

    Ability to set your "Email Invitation" settings per accepted domain instead of tenant wide.

    The advantage is that companies with multiple subsidiaries in 1 tenant can send a Teams invite with their own logos and company information.

  10. Contact Tile size in Calls section should be reduced

    The Speed Dial section allows you to pin Contacts in different groups, which is great.

    But the size of the individual tiles is way too large. I am not running Teams in full screen mode unless someone is presenting. I need a really small but comprehensive list of my favourite contacts - like we used to have in LiveMeeting (and like we used to have in Circuit).

    Please allow a smaller display of these tiles. Name and icon are sufficient for this purpose.

    And please consider the increasing tendency to run such apps on a smartphone - even less screen…

  11. Attachments to a calendar invitation

    I wish there was an "attach" button so I could easily attach a file when I create new meetings on the calendar.

  12. pexip

    Hi,

    In the past, using Pexip Infinity, we were able to join virtual meeting rooms using the Skype for business client, which was able to dial out to Pexip (not only O365). Once migrating to Teams, the only way to make our expensive meeting rooms connect with Teams clients (PC, mobile or Room Systems) is to use Pexip as a gateway.

    We have lost lots of visibility and features by being forced to use Pexip only as a gateway to the Teams Backend.

    We ask that Microsoft makes it possible again to dial out from a Teams client to any…

  13. Add "seen by" on Posts

    Add a feature so that it is possible to see who has seen a post in channels (conversations). Much like I can see if person has seen my message in the Chat

  14. Pop out chats should appear in one window.

    Pop out chats currently appear as individual windows. It would be much simplier if they all appeared in one window, as they do in skype.

  15. Member changes in Teams admin center and PowerShell are reflected immediately in Teams client

    If you add a member of Microsoft Teams from PowerShell or admin center, it will take time to reflect it, so I hope for early improvement.

  16. Add camera zoom in and out controls for Teams.

    I'm on Surface Pro 6 and there is no way to zoom video in or out in Teams. Adjusting the Windows 10 Camera app is not possible on my system while using Teams and it appears to have no impact. This is important because a participant shouldn't appear to be too far away but being too close isn't always realistic due to eye strain. Having a zoom in and out adjustment would solve the issue.

  17. Virtual Background Auto Selection

    I'd like the option in settings to select a permanant background every time I join a call that If I want to remove I can change, but it be set already. I find I'm selecting the same background around 10-15 times a day...and would rather it just be there.

  18. Teams Meeting Policy force users as attendees (Students)

  20. use mobile phone as webcam as either replacement or additional source for teams video

    Allow for mobile phone to be used as additional or replacement webcam for teams like epoccam. Would allow for remote teams to have backup device in lieu of IT hardware support in lockdown (existing webcam failure or where webcam not been provided) or as an additional source video when demonstrating or presenting, such as close-up work. Maybe allowing for Picture-in-picture support like OBS
