  1. 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

  3. Remove Files tab

    I'd like to be able to remove the files tab...some channels I prefer to use a centralized file structure not have files scattered by channel....If I could change the files tab to a link to another file structure that would be even better. Currently I have to add a sharepoint but that makes navigation different between channels

  5. Random name picker from list of meeting attendees

    We would like to be able to randomly pick a name from the list of active meeting attendees. This could allow us to "pick a name from the hat" and designate someone to run our small team meetings, call on someone to answer a question, offer a random prize/giveaway, get more engagement overall, etc. Something like a "/getrandomname" command or something in a meeting chat.

  6. Missing Calendar option within Meet now for private channels.

    There's no calendar option within Meet now when the channel is private. In fact the number of options Private channels have above the new conversation field are far fewer compared to public channels.

  7. Allow opening the URL of a copied file link within the Website app in Microsoft Teams

    Allow opening the URL of a copied file link within the Website app in Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams にてファイルを選択しリンクのコピーをします。

    取得したURLリンクを、Microsoft Teams内の WebサイトアプリにてURLを設定し展開するも表示されないため、表示可能にしてほしい

    First, select a file in Microsoft Teams and copy the link.

    Set up the URL in the Website app within Microsoft Teams and try to open it.
    But it does not work. I would like the results to be displayed.

  9. Allow movement of the participant thumbnail views during a Teams presentation to the top of the screen when someone is presenting.

    Allowing movement of the participant thumbnails to the top of the screen rather than the bottom during a presentation would move my eye gaze toward the camera to show engagement.. I can watch the presenter, the speakers, and the presentation with my eyes up rather than down.

  10. Stage Hook

    This would be an option selected by the meeting organizer to set a time limit on the amount of time each participant is allowed to consume during a meeting. For example, the main presenter has 60% of the meeting time, and all other participants have a pre assigned portion of the remaining time. This would entice participants to contribute truly poignant commentary; consuming limited air time. The Stage Hook would permanently mute participants once their air time allocation has been consumed.

  11. FIFO Audio

    The feature I’d like to see is FIFO muting.
    This would be an option selected by the meeting organizer that directs the Teams platform to only allow one participant voice at a time to come across…the First person to speak is the only voice to be heard for the duration of the voice input plus 1 second of control to allow for pauses in between sentences ….no more multiple voices at one time.

  12. ピン留めした状態でのレコーディング(ビデオフィードを固定する)ができるようにして欲しい

    会議をレコーディングすると、後に作成されるstream動画には、発表者の映像だけでなく、他の参加者の映像が表示された状態となります。これでは4分の1のサイズとなり、細かい部分が見えません。発表者が自分自身の映像をピン留めした状態でレコーディングできる機能を作成して、ビデオフィードが再生時に全画面になるようにしてください。

    使用例:黒板や電子黒板を用いて発表者が会議している映像を配信する場合。ライブで参加している際には、ユーザー側はピン留めして視聴すれば全画面の映像として見ることができますが、会議後にstreams動画を見ると、発表車の映像はボードの4分の1のサイズになってしまっています。他の3つのボックスに一部の参加者の映像やイニシャルが表示された記録動画ではなく、フルスクリーンで記録できるようにして、黒板まではっきりと見えるようにしたいと考えています。

  13. Pop out chats should flash in taskbar when new messages arrive for those chats.

    When popping out chats, they show up on taskbar, and should flash when new messages come.

  14. "Wrong" file/location selection window during first time performing an action with files

    The first time in a Teams session when you're in the "files" tab and you try to do something with a file (move a file, copy a file, etc.), the window to select the file location that pops up is "wrong," i.e. it doesn't actually show the file structure in Teams. You have to close that window and redo the action to get the "right" window. Attached are screenshots of the first window that is "wrong" and then the "right" window that pops up all following times. This also happens with the window that opens to select a file to…

  16. Will a 5x5 video view be possible in near future? For virtual teaching?

    Can you please roll out a 5x5 gallery view for video conferencing? It will help teachers reach the majority, if not all, students!

  17. Share application rather than only single files

    In meetings we often have to view several files. By sharing application (such as Excel) you wouldn't have to end sharing and restart sharing other file, eachtime you jump between files

  18. Ability to have a shared Team identity for chat

    I run a HelpDesk and it would be great to have the ability for users to use Teams to chat with a "HelpDesk" ID that could be responded to by support personnel.
    We use a shared mailbox at present and users can find the mailbox in Teams and send a chat message to it, but there's no way to respond in Teams

  19. More/custom granular meeting roles

    More granular meeting roles, including the ability to separate the share screen with mute/unmute functions. At present it seems to be all or nothing between attendee and presenter role. This would also include the introduction of a moderator role which can mute all apart from the presenters

  20. Allow toggling noise filtering or allowing original sound

    I'd like to be able to switch off noise filtering if I need to do so. I am a music therapist using this service, and often my guitar sounds/percussion/other instruments are all cut out due to noise filtering. There is no ability to adjust or customise audio.
