How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Remove participants from chat or meeting

I'd like to remove participants from a group chat or meeting. This is similar to what's available in Skype for Business.

    Hope there's a way to remove participants on the chat... at the moment, we would have to ask those people to leave the chat group.

    An employee that no longer works with us is stuck in all our important group chats. It would be nice to be able to remove a deleted user. There is also a participant limit in group chats so having an extra person taking up a seat for no reason is problematic for us.

    Hi There. I seriously think Microsoft should provide an option for "group chats" (defined as more than 2 users in a chat) and enable the original creator of the chat, to boot someone out.

    There are many use cases why this is so:
    1. When team members leave a team and work in a different focus group
    2. When employees transfer to another subsidary
    3. When there is an abusive participant and needs to be booted

    If Microsoft truly only wanted to limit the group admin functions to teams, then I would suggest you just Disable the group private chat function, and keep it 1-to-1.

    As TEAMS transitions into a full fledged client having full features of Skype4Biz in Q4 2018/Q1 2019, imagine calling a conferencing by pressing the "call button" in the group chat. This then becomes that "Group conference" function, but lacks the full function of skype4biz where conference calls have a presenter, and a participant segregation.

    This chat function is not a simple after thought, and should not be treated as such.


    Since Microsoft is serious about being on-par, and BETTER than #SLACK because of the full integration of Skype4Biz into the Teams client, then it should deliver as intended, and not limit the way Enterprise and organisations work, but be fluid and Evolve their application together.
