  1. Have Teams use my default sound settings

    So I'm on a call and Teams is simultaneously telling me that my speakers are muted while I'm struggling to find the volume controls because the call is extremely loud and it's not going through my plugged-in headphones.

    I finally found the sound settings in Teams to fix this, but seriously this was annoying. The default settings are there for a reason.

    • Set a main camera screen when presenting

      I record our team meetings and want to be able to just show the main speaker - not a split screen for recording please. I don't need to see the participants who dial in on the main screen, icons will do

      • Logitech H540 works with S4b but mic not working in teams

        The speakers (earphones) are working but the microphone is not transmitting sound. When up down volume is pressed, there is a crackling sound but that's it.

        • Allow video quality settings to be adjusted downward to conserve bandwidth.

          Many meetings do not need the highest resolution video generated by attached cameras, but could operate quite well with lower resolutions. It would be good to have a setting allowing the attendees to select a lower resolution for this reason.

            • Ability to add a logo overlay in camera or share view.

              Would be great to be able to show company/department logo in the video chat. Preferably mouse pointer sensitive so that it disappears when mousing over it in share mode.

              • Add a "Are you available for a call?" or "Please call me when you can" button

                often asking people if they are available for a quick call right now or in the next minutes - instead of asking, we could have a specific button "Can you call me?"

                • Screen sharing - left margin is cut off

                  When a user is sharing their screen, the left margin of their screen is covered with the left navigation in Teams (contains the icons for Activity, Chat, etc).

                  If you click on the shared screen, the left nav disappears. but, if you move your mouse, the left nav apears again.

                      • Increase the webcams displayed beyond the 4 camera limit

                        Increase the amount of webcams displayed simultaneously beyond 4. We have several Teams in our organization with 5-10 or so users. They currently stick to using either GoToMeeting or Skype for Business so that they can have video conference calls and see each other all on the screen simultaneously. This 4 camera limit is slowing adoption of Teams within our organization and forcing us to keep Skype for Business around, which I'd love to replace in-full with Teams.

                          • Do not change the state of the microphone mute GUI button unless the user clicks it.

                            The behavior of the in-app Mute function is inexcusably invasive. The state of the mute button in the app should never be changed unless the user clicks it. If I mute or unmute my microphone at the hardware level, the software shouldn't change its mute state.

                            • Video on/off control by security role, account, policy

                              We aim to use T eams in a clinical environment.

                              While Teams is HiPAA compliant, the video availability in clinical environments is too big of a risk for incidental disclosure of patient information. You should look for a way to have security policies that can turn off video by role, account, and as a matter of policy. This is a huge issue for us, and essentially prevents us from using teams.

                                  • Video camera stops working with error

                                    Continually my Logitech BRIO works for a while in Teams and then I get an error that the camera stopped working and that I should plug it in again. It happens after about 5 minutes or so. However, when I use other video conferencing apps (like GotoMeeting), I can use the camera for hours, no issues ever. Teams, every single time, it fails. Ideas? If it was happening in all apps, I'd suspect my camera or USB, but since other apps work wonderfully, I suspect it is something with Teams.
