  1. Meeting Record Quality is low

    The meeting record quality is worse than the actual realtime video. For screen share video's this can make somethings difficult to read due to the blocky-ness of the recording.

  2. Add people to call

    Today, if I am in a 1:1 phone call, I can not add another person, ad hoc, to the call. There should be a + symbol type icon to add another person.

  3. Teams Video needs more features

    The video feature set doesn't support collaboration.

    My team needs:
    1. Option for granting remote control.
    2. Integrated whiteboard.
    3. Flexible screen sharing and video, i.e. keep together or split on separate screens.

  4. Show all participants on the screen on Teams. Only 4 people can be seen at one time.

    Only up to 4 people can be seen at one time. All other video chat programs show all the participants video.

  5. Indicator if talking on Mute

    Mute option is very helpful when we don't want to be heard and prevent and disturbance in ongoing conversation however at times we un-knowingly forget to un-mute before talking on call or in P2P call. It would be helpful if we have indicator which alerts speaker if talking on Mute.

  6. mute

    Add the mute participant option to their icon on the main meeting screen. The mute feature is available under the participant icon, but it would be helpful to find the person right on the main screen. With large groups of people in the meeting, it would be helpful to have the mute option right on the screen for the person who is creating too much background noise or feedback vs scrolling through the list of people in the participant window.

  7. Configure ring duration

    In Skype the user has the ability to configure call ring duration of anywhere from 5 to 60 seconds before the call is sent to voicemail or alternate number. We would like this feature in Teams. Our executives use this setting frequently.

  9. Please have mute indicator stay visable, instead of auto- hiding. It is valuable to quickly identify if you are muted or not.

  10. Allow for users to annotate over the video

    Allow users to annotate over top of a video while collaborating. This would be useful for service calls

  11. Reorganize the video feeds.

    It would be beneficial if there was a way to manually reorganize the video feeds in realtime. i.e. Move the video windows around the screen and reorder them as we wish, when we wish.

  12. Answer incoming calls automatically

    This is a very convenient feature that is available in skype, it allows for setup of a kiosk station with minimal management effort.

    Features from skype.

    Answer incoming calls automatically
    * Start my video automatically when I am in a call

    As it can be invasive, skype also has a feature to Allow calls from... Anyone/people on my Contact list only

    As we dont have a contact list in Teams I would suggest that the feature could/would be scoped to Favorites

  13. Move the ring back from the desktop speakers to the the headset

    When calling another Teams user the "Skypish" ring back comes out thru the desktop speakers and not the headset. I typically run my desktop muted and it is annoying there is no ring back in that case. Even with the speakers on it's annoying that the ring back could disturb a coworker.

  14. Display Chat Window While in a Call

    Regularly I get into a call with someone & then have the need to send items via that chat.

    Instead of displaying the call window in full screen, it would be great to have that minimized & display the chat similar to Skype for Business.

  15. Need a spam filter for calls

    Please add the ability to have a call spam filter like outlook where we could click on the call history and have the option to always send the call to voicemail or to block a caller.

  16. Pop up a widget for incoming calls to make it easy to answer the call (e.g. Like Skype)

    If a call comes in on Skype, it pops up a window that lets me answer. Teams lack this and even makes me hunt for which contact is calling so that I can answer it.

  17. Webcam quality is very low

    I have a full HD (1080p) webcam which hasn't the same quality in video call than with Skype for Business. We also have fiber optic Internet connection so it's not the cause of the poor image.

    It happened on many different computers so I guess it's an issue from Teams.

    Question: can you make the video quality much higher?

  18. Allow selection of camera flicker frequency between 50hz & 60hz

    Allow selection of camera flicker frequency between 50hz & 60hz like the setting that is available in Skype for Business.

    We are just starting to use Teams for video calls and the frequency of the lights causes video flicker because this is not configurable.

  19. Adjust the volume of individuals in a group call

    Like discord I would like to adjust the volumes of each member in the call.
    This is to adjust volume levels to the microphones they are using, or lower background noise from other participants.

  20. Save Audio/Video Settings for Future Meetings

    Every time I join a meeting, I'm prompted with a "Choose your audio and video settings" box... and every time, video is turned on and audio is turned off. I want the opposite settings so I have to toggle them for every meeting. Please save my settings for future meetings. Add a check-box to "Show these settings for every meeting" or "Save these settings as default". I want to be able to click "Join Meeting" and immediately join the meeting with predictable settings... prompting for these settings is a waste of time.
