  1. Video feeds from meeting participants should be at the top of the screen -- not the bottom

    To create the feeling of "eye contact" it is ideal if all meeting participants are looking more or less in the direction of their camera while conversing with each other. Ideally, when a user is looking at their fellow meeting participant's video feed, it should appear as if the user is looking directly into the camera.

    However, because the video feeds are at the bottom of the screen in Teams, everyone in the meeting usually appears as if they are looking down, instead of at the camera.

    Therefore, the video feeds should appear at the top of each user's screen,…

  2. Meeting Call Me Back Number

    After entering a meeting, if you would like Teams to call you back you need to enter a phone number in the Call Me Back box. (See attached file.) It would be great if this box would remember the last number called and there was a user setting to save a default number. This would save you from having to enter in the number every single time.

  4. full screen only one person from the call

    On a call with more than 2 persons, unless someone is actually presenting his/her screen, the screen is usually split between the others on the call. Its always a split screen, up to four seperate window. But if someone uses its web cam, lets say to show us a white board... we can't make that specific person's web cam presentation full screen.

  5. Add Live Reaction Option in meetings

    This Live Reaction option (including "Thumbs Up") would be an easy way for Attendees to respond to the Presenter during meetings consisting of more than 15 people. This would prevent mass unmuting of microphones which causes the whole meeting to go out of order and most importantly loses time.

  6. Have end users change participant settings (lobby settings) for Teams meetings

    Just like with Skype for Business have a setting that allows our end users to change the participant settings for Teams Meetings as described here for Skype for Business: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/change-participant-settings-for-skype-for-business-meetings-9175e297-de5f-43b2-8e0f-85cc05e24986

  7. delete recorded meeting

    There is no way to delete a meeting that has been recorded in a channel. There have been a couple of times that I have started and ended one realizing I was in the wrong channel or that I didn't give it a title or topic name.

  8. It's distracting to get a chat message when a meeting has started or ended

    This should be a notification option that you can turn off. Currently you see a chat item for your attention. You go to it only to see that the meeting you just started, or just ended, started or ended. You already know that, and the notification is just wasting your time.

    We are happy to announce this feature is released. By default meeting chats will be muted until send a message in the chat, or join the online meeting. To change these defaults, go to your profile picture at the top right of the app, select Settings > Notifications. From there, scroll to the meetings section and open the menu next to Meeting chat notifications.

  9. Join a meeting without going through the browser

    Notify Teams meeting invitation emails in Outlook.
    Click on the meeting URL in the invitation email.
    At this time, the browser starts and opens the desktop client.
    Operation via this browser is inconvenient.
    I want to join the meeting with a desktop client without going through the browser.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to announce that all meeting join points have been addressed in Outlook for Windows and Mac. It is important to note, Bypassing meeting join when clicking the URL in Outlook is supported in Outlook Win32 versions 16.0.12827.1000 or higher.

  10. Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

    Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

    I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

  11. Start a meeting with the mic muted, like Skype and Lync do

    When joining a meeting, the video and mic should be turned off by default and need to be turned on by the user either per session or globally via settings. This is the default behavior for both Skype for Business and Lync 2013 (as I recall).

  12. Create teams meeting from calendar using OWA

    When using calendar on OWA, there is no way to create a Microsoft Teams meeting. You need to create it from Microsoft Teams instead.

    Please add the functionality to create a meeting from Calendar using OWA

  13. Speaker attribution in captions

    During any Meeting in Teams, it could be great if it provides speaker username along with Captions while scrolling and it will be great if those captions within meeting group as saved as history(ex: char history). so, that it will be easy to recollect discussion happened by reading all captions without voice help& without anybody's help.

  14. Change default meeting options

    The default meeting options are not adjustable at this time. By default, the meeting options are set so that no one has to wait in the lobby and everyone has the presenter role by default. For each meeting, the meeting owner must manually adjust it. There is currently no option to adjust the standard. This is not pleasant for an education tenant.

    Make sure that it is possible to adjust the default meeting options.

    p.s. this is / was possible in Skype

    We’re happy to announce admins are able to change the default value of ‘Who can present?’ in Meeting Options via the new parameter, DesignatedPresenterRoleMode. For more information, please visit: https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/meeting-policies-in-teams or https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/policy-packages-edu

    In addition there is a new default Teams meeting policy to enforce lobby in meetings for tenants who have not modified the default meetings policy. With this change, meeting organizers can define/fine-tune the lobby experience via the Meeting options feature. For information on meeting options, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e

  15. Show notes and next slide when presenting a PowerPoint

    While you can present a PowerPoint in a Teams meeting it is still not as functional as in Skype for Business.

    If I present a PowerPoint I want to be able to see my presenter notes and a preview of the next slide and a clock. Skype for Business does this.

    We are trying to replace Skype with Teams as much as possible but this is a use case where Teams falls short.

    Great news! The ability to see PowerPoint slide notes and thumbnails is available to the public. Right now, this can be shown/hidden by using a keyboard shortcut. Click in the slide area, and press “Ctrl Shift X”, to show or hide the notes and thumbnail strip.

    We are working on the ask to turn this feature on & off. Please see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/42654730 – this is coming soon!

  17. Meeting Policy - presenter permissions

    In Skype, you were able to set your meeting options for any particular meeting. You don't have this option in Teams and everyone from your organization is made a presenter by default, so anyone can mute or remove anyone including the meeting organizer from the meeting. At the very least, we should be able to set an option in the Meeting Policies to not allow entire organization to be presenters, but it would be better if the meeting organizer could decide who if anyone, can have those permissions.

  18. File sharing of powerpoint is not recorded in meetings

    I was recording my meeting that included file sharing (powerpoint file). Afterward, I was watching the record and I've noticed that it wasn't visible. Once I switched to the screen sharing it was visible in the record.

  19. Save audio / video devices

    On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

  20. Allow meeting participants to mute each other or mute all

    This is a feature of Google Hangouts we use all the time. When someone is in a noisy environment, has a mic/speaker setup that causing feedback, or is banging on their keyboard, they don't always realize it, and it's very useful for someone else to be able to mute the participant who is causing a disruptive amount of noise but not speaking.

    Hi everyone!
    Got some great news to share this feature request is now live to the public!

    Mute someone in a meeting

    Mute individual meeting participants straight from the meeting roster to cut down on background noise. If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to chime in.

    Mute everyone in a meeting

    If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select Mute all. Each individual will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

    Thank you all for the great feedback. We will continue to improve Teams and your feedback is key part in our efforts.

    -Warren
