  1. Allow multiple PSTN numbers to be assigned to one user

    For Office 365 phone system and teams to really start replacing PBX deployments it needs to add some missing features. One of the easy (hopefully) ones is to allow a user to have multiple lines associated with them such as region specific direct dial numbers. At present you can only associate one number.

  2. Acknowledge or thumbs up button for calls

    It would be great if there was a thumbs up button or something for use in video calls (especially with a lot of people). For example someone may as 'can everyone here me?' and people can press the thumbs up button instead of messaging in the chat or turning their mic on saying yes then turning it off again

  4. Allow for 4-digit transferring and conference dial-out

    While a 4-digit dial plan and normalization works for regular dialing out via Direct Routing, transferring to a 4-digit number or getting called by a 4-digit extension for a transfer always fails. This also applies to dialing out from a conference call.

    While this is considered a known issue, I want to emphasize that this is a deal-breaker for my organization using this for the time being. I would imagine I'm not the only one as other organizations are using 3-4 digit extensions that would be affected by this in their direct routing scenarios.

  5. Spam calls report and screening

    Spam calls are on the rise. I may get a couple a day on my work phone.

    Let users report a phone number as spam and use crowd sourcing to screen likely spam numbers.

    Let Cortana answer a call and convert it to text in real time so that the user can decide if the call need to be answered.

    Let users remove items from missing calls history.

  6. Conference Video pan nauseating

    When in a conference with at least two other participants, the video for each participant keeps panning to keep their face aligned, which is nauseating/distracting because the background behind them keeps shifting. Provide an option to Turn it off!

  9. dial in third party: no announcement whether he wants to participate in a conference call

    When I call to a person via Skype for Business (or Teams) and I dial a third person into the conversation, the 3rd person should not – immediately after taking the call – receive the announcement whether he wants to participate in a conference call, because this scares the 3rd person, who does not expect a conference call and does not know who is in the call, with the effect that he rejects the call.

  10. Block countries international calls

    It would be very handy if we could restrict the countries our users can dial on our international plan. We only work with companies in 4 other countries (India, Poland, Ireland, America) so we want to explicitly restrict them to just these countries

  11. Call a channel using the mobile app

    In the desktop app you can set up a call which is recorded in the channel and other people can see that it's happening. Currently on the mobile app you can only direct call another person or group of people

  13. Call pick up for other members of the team

    Allow other users in the team to pick up an incoming call on behalf of a busy user. Call Pickup feature on other systems often allow something like *31 ext to answer a call ringing on another device in the same office.

  14. How do you share more than one of your monitors when sharing 'screen' in Teams?

    Our Apps run on 2 screens. I did not find a way of sharing 2 monitors at once. Is there a way?

  17. Ringtone

    Ability to adjust the ringtone for calls coming from a call queue when you are already on a call. Currently the standard ringtone plays even though you are already on a call. It should have the option of a quick noise to alert you but not distract you from the call.

  18. Host to control Video usage

    Hi
    Not sure I saw anything on this, so here the post:
    It's no secret that the video capability can extensively impact the network bandwidth and while for some type of meetings video is needed, most will not require video to be streamed.
    As a host of a call I want to be able to pre-control my meeting and decide if I want to allow the usage of video or not.
    For example, as a line manager I am interested to capture the reaction of any of my direct reports on 1:1 sessions and related discussions.
    However, in meetings where…

  19. 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

  20. Blurred background from start (remember last used setting)

    I'd very much like the "blurred background" option to remember which state I leave it in and start in that mode (usually blurred mode).
