  1. See Participants and Conversation in same pane during meeting

    Allow ability to see the participants AND conversation in the same side pane of a meeting. I know there are bubbles with participant initials but when I'm on a call with the client I need to see the participants pane to see ALL participants and who's speaking. Also, need to see conversation as we share many links during a call. Would be helpful to have both in the same pane. Thanks!

  2. Join Skype Meetings from Teams

    While in Teams Only Mode (already fully migrated to Teams) it would be great to be able to have a lightweight Skype client built into Teams so you dont have to leave the Teams client fully to join a Skype meeting.

  3. Support for extension phone number for call me at

    in the "call me at" or call me back field into the information call menu during a meeting it's possible to enter with a extension like +1 418 521 3838#8455 but the system ignore the extension number of the phone of the PBX system.
    Please support the extension phone number for the call me at option to transfer the voice on phone during a meeting and for compagny that have PBX and phone with extension phone number

  4. Live Events: "give control" without presenter requesting control

    It appears to be impossible for the producer to give control over a presentation to a presenter unless the presenter presses the "request control" button. For some presenters this creates a more confusing UX than if the producer could simply give them control.

  5. Export captions recorded in stream, via Teams without meta data - minutes!

    Currently when you record a meeting in Teams its stored on Stream. This is brilliant as editing the video allows auto captions. You can even download the captions file as VTT - which you can open in word/notepad etc. But it comes with every line time stamped, some meta tags etc

    if it could be exported without this you have just invented self minute taking meetings!

  7. Meeting attendance

    It would be nice if the meeting invitation generates a QR Code that participant will scan to validate presence.

  8. manage Anonymous access per Policy instead of Org level

    manage Anonymous access to Meeting at user level instead of Org.

    I did notice below issues when someone join as anonymous
    -user activity doesn't track if some admitted Anonymous user
    -compliance center doesn't show what did happen during that meeting ( file share, pp presentation...)
    when presenter kick an attendee, the attendee can join again without going through lobby !!( i think this is a real bug)

  10. Option to play sound for meeting arrive and exit

    I know some have requested in the past for this to go away, so my proposal is to have an option to turn on or off having sounds when meeting attendees arrive and leave a meeting. I and others I work with like the alert when someone has joined or left. I can understand why others would be annoyed by this feature by reading other posts, but we should have it as an option please. Or at least an on-screen notification option too.

  11. Joined People notification in Meeting

    I have noticed a bug or incorrect status in a meeting. If I invite 4 people for example, when I start the meeting though it shows the people who joined the meeting in main windows on right side at top it indicates that the person who did not join also in meeting and says like Mr, xxxxx and others joined the meeting. This is misleading

  12. attending meeting

    We've been using skype for business in our company and we're trying to transition to Teams but we've run into a question when running meetings (with Teams). It seems that our view of who is attending each meeting is often not complete in that it doesn't show all attendees which makes it difficult to run a meeting and engage with everyone.

    Am I missing something that Teams offers in this direction or is this apparently not working as designed?

  13. Paste from Excel in meeting notes

    Currently, you cannot paste Excel cells into the Meeting notes. You have to select the text within each cell and copy/past that. However, you can copy/past cells in chat.

  14. callback

    Having a non-data call back option during meetings was a must in Skype and does not appear to be available in teams

  15. Prevent users from joining a meeting

    Add a setting to prevent users who are not a member of the Team/O365 Group from joining the Teams meeting. This setting should exist in the Outlook client as well as the Teams client, web app, and mobile app.

    Similarly, prevent people who were not invited directly by the meeting organizer from joining the meeting. (e.g., meeting invite was forwarded or meeting link was copied and sent to user who was not directly invited).

  16. Video conferecing with multiple people. Video only works for last 4 speakers.

    When having conference calls only last 4 speakers can be seen. I would like to be able to see everyone reaction when I talk with them so it would be better to be able to see more then 4.. maybe with different templates .. to see 4 big and others small or everyone with smaller video so that all fit on the screen.

  17. combine dial in instance with app instance so voice and video are merged

    When you connect via the app to a Teams meeting and then dial in from a phone using telephony, you end up with two instances of your participation in the meeting. One identified with your TEAMS account and one identified with your mobile number.

    When you speak, your video does not take focus because your telephone instance is not linked to your app/video instance.

    In ZOOM.US you can merge these two instances using #id# and combine your instances into one named instance.

  18. Provide 'Meet Now' or 'Share Window' button for one-on-one chats.

    During a chat with a single user, there is no 'Meet Now' button or 'Share Window' functionality.

    In SfB, I am able to simply share content with another person without needing to create a voice or video call.

    In Teams, we cannot do this. My options are to start a video/voice call or to schedule a meeting.

    Skype for Business provides a far superior experience, as I can immediately begin sharing with a contact without a voice/video cal. If you expect companies to adopt this as a new platform, you simply cannot make basic functionality more difficult. Furthermore, you allow…

  19. It would be a nice addition to be able to record meetings and transcribe them.

    If the user is in Team Meeting they would be able to record and save the meeting to Teams Document Folder.

    User also has the option to convert audio to text file copy that is transcribed.

  20. I would like Teams to call me to join the meeting instead of the user to Join

    AWS Chime has a feature, where the participants don't have to remember their meeting time tp join, instead it calls each participant at the scheduled meeting time. Can we have Teams do that? Coming from AWS Chime, we are having a hard time getting ourselves used to Teams!
