    • unable to unmute dialed in users

      When muting all users during a meeting with "mute all" it also mutes the dialed in users. However they are unable to unmute themselves as they are dialed in. There is also no way for me to unmute those users requiring them to call back in

      • Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

        When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

        This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

        • Extend number of participants in a Teams Meeting

          We are using MS Teams as a network tool for our various super user communities. When trying to invite all for a meeting via Teams - we encounter a limitation of 80 participants - our super user communities have between 10 and 400 members.
          Would it be possible to set up a selection feature when inviting participants:
          - all team members (extend number to unlimited instead of 80)
          - by name (already possible)
          - by groups (that Teams divide the members into pre-selected groups with eg. 50 participants so you can add more meetings but select to add group 1…

            • Integrate Meetings and Planner Tasks

              It would be nice to be able to have functionality where you could create a Meeting based on Planner tasks and vice versa.
              The feature would be similar to the Outlook-OneNote integration.
              - Send the Planner Assignees to Meeting
              - Send Planner checklists to Meeting
              - Etc.

                • 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.

                  • Ability to play music while waiting for a meeting to start

                    It would be very useful if Teams had a built in way for a meeting organizer and/or presenter to be able to play some music at the very beginning of a meeting while waiting for everyone to join in. This would let everyone who is already in know that their audio is working, and would help cut down on potential chatter at the beginning that can sometimes derail the start of a meeting.

                    We've all heard people join in and start asking if things are working when all they hear is silence, or had to tell everyone repeatedly that the…

                    • Add the ability to call the group within a meeting in the Meetings tab

                      We have the list of attendees listed under each meeting. Add the ability to start a call with this group. Seems odd that this is missing.

                      • Stop chat notifications if you leave meeting

                        Just went to meeting on PC client, and left as my part was done, now I'm still getting chat notifications of that meeting on my MOBILE device (Android) as other people still continue in that meeting. On Android, I see "Meeting in progress" and JOIN - still I get notifications of that meeting's chat.

                        • Introduce breakout room functionality

                          We have a business requirement for breakout rooms with live events. The idea is pretty simple - we plan to use live events to host internal staff training webinars and as part of that, at times we will ask for small groups of people (typically 4-5) to go away into a breakout room and come back to the group with their answer/idea.

                          We would like to see this functionality be introduced to Microsoft Teams for not only live events but also video calls. This would provide feature parity with pre-existing tools such as Zoom, WebEx and many more which would…

                          • Do Not Invite Entire Team on Channel Meeting

                            Right now, when you setup a meeting for a channel, it will end up inviting all users and guests of the team to the meeting.

                            If you have a large team, you usually don't want this.

                            The scenario around this is you have a team of 20 people. This team is then split out into physical 5-person teams. Each of those physical teams has their own channel where they can do a daily stand-up. These teams also want to have this daily stand-up in a channel meeting of only their team, not the entire 20-person team.

                                I'd like to know how many people attended a meeting, when they joined, and when they left. Not all meetings need this but these can be very useful analytics for large presentations.

                                • Add PSTN conferencing details to instant "meet now" meetings

                                  We love that PSTN dial-in has been added to scheduled meetings. Sometime we also want to allow people to dial in to an instant meeting that was started with a "meet now" from within a team or chat - can you make the dial-in PSTN option accessible in those meetings too?

                                  • Allow uploading/linking Microsoft PowerPoint file to meeting

                                    Skype for Business has the ability to 'upload' a Microsoft PowerPoint file which then pushes out to all the meeting attendees. This makes it possible for the presenter to quickly flip between slides without the lag caused by redrawing the screen over low-bandwidth connections.

                                    This ability to flip slides on a shared file is essential for a smooth flowing meeting.

                                    Listing to a multiple meeting attendees reading out what screen they're on, 'oh, it's coming... it's blurry now (redrawing)... etc.', every time the slide changes is so unproductive.

                                    Teams needs an S4B equivalent feature where the entire slide deck and…

                                    • Make meeting minutes shareable

                                      Currently if I join a meeting on Teams, there is an option to take meeting notes. It's a neat fetaure, but there is no way to export the contents of the note, I have to copy-paste it section by section.
                                      Please make a share button / option.

                                        Pause music/audio when a meeting or call starts. SfB does this. Teams doesn't.

                                        • Audio Feedback Loops

                                          We need a feature (similar to Skype for Business) to control how a user joins the audio portion of the meeting. The product works perfectly right now if everyone uses telephony headsets, but get 4 Surface Pros in a room, have everyone click the "Join" button and then wait for your ears to bleed as the audio all feeds back.

                                          Even having 3 out of 4 users click the mute button doesn't solve the problem because the meeting audio is still coming out of their speakers and feeding back into the one user who is using their mic to run…
