  3. Automatic video update where active speakers are shown during video calls

    When someone speaks in a video/audio call and no screen is pinned, the person speaking should be displayed. Furthermore, this could be filtered to the loudest individuals if there are users with a low-level volume of constant mic feedback.

  4. Notify specified member/s of the team when a planner task is completed

    It would be helpful to be able to not only assign a task to an individual, but also to optionally assign others to be notified when that task is completed, or if it's not completed but is getting close to the due date.

    At the moment, this requires a manual check so is difficult to keep on top of team tasks and assignments.

  6. Hide Inactive Chats

    I love this application. One suggestion that I have is to auto-hide chats that have not had an activity for x days (5 by default, but definable). There would be a checkbox or a right click context item to show old chats so you could refer back to them. The search function would still see hidden chats as well. This would really help though because I have so many chats and I don't have time to go through and close them all. I also don't want to close them in case I need to reference them later. So this hide…

  8. Ability to bulk schedule meetings (i.e. school timetable) via teams or powershell

    As a School we are looking at remote learning via teams, we are nearly there with all of our training. A useful feature would be bulk scheduling live meetings so that we are able to 'import' our timetable into teams - it may be useful for other organisations too for weekly meetings etc

  9. A feature to change the channel type

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    チャネルの種類を変更する機能
    A feature to change the channel type


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams では作成済みのチャネルの種類を変更することが現時点ではできません。

    必要に応じて作成後のチャネルの種類の変更を実現できる機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently it is not possible to change the channel type for Microsoft Teams.

    Thus we hope that a feature will be provided to change the channel type after creation when there is a need for it.

  10. Easier image browsing in chats

    Handheld devices (initially?): When an image in a chat is selected/tapped the user should be able to then tap the left side of the screen (or swipe to the right) to view previous images and tap the right side of the screen (or swipe to the left) to view the next image.

  11. Show just Teams creation sensitivity labels

    When sensitivity labels have been created for Team creation they are visible when creating a Team. However all published sensitivity labels are visible and not just those that are for Team creation.

    Perhaps having location publication of sensitive labels for Team creation, like retention labels, could be introduced to only show those labels to admins and users to restrict what can be selected.

  13. Can you have TEAMS pause the Windows Media Player the same why Skype does?

    Skype pauses music playing on the Windows Media Player when you start/join a call or meeting. It would be great to have the same functionality in TEAMS.

  16. Request Private Chat/Call

    It would be helpful if participants in a group chat could request a private conversation/call with other members of that group chat.

    My vision here is that users could be members of a virtual 'lobby' discussing recent webinars or presentations. A user could select one or multiple other members of the lobby and request a private conversation or call. The recipient(s) of the request receive an approval. Once approved, a private session containing all participants who have accepted opens and the participants status becomes 'In Private Session'. The participants can't be disturbed until they leave the private session.

  17. Camera permissions are not displayed by default in the mobile app.

    Camera permissions are not displayed by default in the mobile app.

    When joining a web conference, an allow / deny pop-up appears for the first time.

    Is this a bug?

    Ask for camera permissions when installing the app, or show the camera item from the beginning in the app settings!

    Someone suspects a device or app is broken because it doesn't appear until permission is required.

  18. Block searching guest users in Teams

    When you search the existing guest users to add members in Teams app, they are shown as the suggestion currently. We have concern with this behavior from a security perspective, so it would be great to add a feature to block searching guest users when adding members in Teams app.
