  9. student view on screen

    Teachers need to be able to view more than 9 students at a time, or have the ability to scroll from screen to screen to view students faces. It is impossible to teach a class and only see 9 students

  11. notification throttle

    Add the ability to throttle a notification. I would like the ability to get a single notification and then not get subsequent notifications unless I open and check teams or X time has passed.

  13. Do not change last modified user even when files are open by "Edit in Teams"

    File's last modified user changes when open files by "Edit in Teams".

  15. Provide Meeting Buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] buttons as Toolbar buttons during Meetings

    When conducting meetings, the meeting buttons window is useful but obstructing the presentation area. To fix this, can we introduce a Toolbar (Like Windows Media Player in olden windows) that has the meeting buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] during the call. This helps to manage calls, mic without having to restore the meeting snippet.

  16. Integrate teams into file explorer

    It would be great to have teams available within file explorer in the same way that OneDrive is. This would completely revolutionise the way people use file servers and collaborate with Teams. Saving directly to Teams and pulling files directly from Teams without having to figure out or retrain staff who aren’t very IT literate.

  18. Display Contacts Status

    It would be nice to be able to shrink the window size down to skinny box or toolbar that shows your contacts and their status' without the chat behind them. Kind of like how Skype does it, using less desktop real estate.

  19. MS Teams - Update Procedure

    Dear MS Team Devs,

    The current Microsoft Teams update procedure is currently broken and needs serious attention.

    As it stands the desktop application will give you a banner to update your MS Teams desktop client. Most users ignore this message and sometimes have problems connecting to MS Team sessions or conferences due to the fact that the host for instance is on a newer version of MS Teams.

    In my view the MS Teams application must download an prepare the update for the user before next startup. This will force the user to update to the latest version of MS…

  20. Recording video from host computer while recording a Team Meeting

    When hosting a Teams meeting to record a live group training, we often share video of the computer's camera. We want to be able to record the full screen video and not have it just be a quadrant of the full screen.
