  1. Make it openable at background!

    Please make this program to be enabled to be opened at background. We have had really bad security issues because program is opening to desktop at top and previous conversation comes visible. On one customer meeting our salesman got network operating during his presentation and Teams pops up at top and shows our previous conversation of that meeting sales strategy and prices. This is not modern way to do and not platform what you can use to discuss anything if this is not fixed quickly! REALLY SERIOUS FAULT! And when opening program do not show previous conversations show main screen.

  2. I want to control enabling of anonymous join with the option of team or channel

    Anonymous join should be implemented with options that can be controlled by team or channel.

    This feature allows anonymous users to be restricted after the meeting.

  3. Teams Meeting Lobby Queue Management

    While there are participants waiting in the lobby, it would be very useful to be able to send them custom messages while in the lobby. This can be used to notify participants of delays in attending the call, or pre-meeting preparation functions such as turn on cameras and mics or have specific documents ready.
    Ideally this would be useful to have the ability to send custom messages to specific lobby participants, or all lobby participants.

  4. Start a Meeting with Camera On/Off Control

    Meetings should have the option to allow camera setting to be on or off autmatically at the time of joining meetings, particularly for Guests. In a healthcare context, making a patient find the camera on toggle is frustrating and difficult. If this could be turned on automatically for certain Meetings, it would be very valuable.

  5. Provide the same Q&A moderator capability in Live Events within Teams

    Even with smaller team meetings, there is often a need to have Q&A moderation rather than scrolling through chat or opening up the floor to Q&A.

    It would be useful to leverage the Q&A moderation capability found in Live Events within simple meetings.

  6. Add a Meetings tab to the Teams Desktop application

    Skype would let you easily see/join upcoming meetings. It is ridiculously difficult to join from Teams, particularly when the Join Online and Launch from Browser options do not work more than half of the time.

    Pinning meetings is sometimes an option, but not a great solution (particularly when meetings have the same title).

  7. See who is in the party (Teams call) before joining - Like Xbox!

    So before joining a meeting or receiving the prompt to join one - there is an initial splash screen showing:
    > Title of meeting
    > Your picture
    > Join now button
    > various options for video/ voice device control
    > other join options

    But - why doesn't it show who is in the call in this screen? or who has been invited to the call?

  9. Indicate that my video is currently visible

    Today, when you are in a call with 5+ participants, only four participants are featured at a given time (the last four who have spoken). If there are 5 or more participants, it's impossible to tell whether you are one of those four featured participants at any given time.

    I know there is separate feedback about making everyone's webcams visible instead of just the last four people who have been speaking, which I am in support of. But in the meantime, and even after that feature gets implemented, it would be really helpful to know if you are one of…

  10. remove or significantly minimize attendee log when sharing a screen

    When somebody is sharing his/her screen during a Teams meeting, there is a band at the bottom of the screen sharing window. the band shows the attendees but it's taking a lot of space that could be used for enlarging shared screen. i couldn't figure out how to minimize or eliminate this bottom band.

  12. Only show active cameras in the quadrant view.

    Don't waste quadrant/main screen space with place-holder images of either people with camera off or phone callers. If only one participant turns their camera on (but many are in the call) you see them in 1/4 of the screen and the other 3 quadrants are place-holders. Why not show the active speaker full screen, or split only as needed with other active cameras?

  14. Bookmarks in recorded meetings

    It would be incredibly useful to allow bookmarking as a meeting is recorded so that we can quickly refer to them later as a sort of video-based documentation.

  15. Keep Teams meeting back-end logs for 30 days for support purposes

    We recently had an issue where a room was mysteriously muted in a Teams meeting. Premier Support could not find why or who muted the meeting because the back-end logs are only kept for 6 hours. There will be more instances like this and it is unlikely that the problem will be reported, a case opened and an engineer assigned within 6 hours of the incident. Please see Premier Support's explanation below.

    Hi Jim,

    We apologize for the delay, we have been trying to verify the logs on our end.
    Unfortunately, we have been informed that back-end logs for user…

  17. Team based policies to auto record meetings from team members to stream

    When a meeting happens within our team (between us, or any team member having external meetings), i would like the ability to enable an admin or group owner policy that ensures that ALL meetings we have are recorded.

    This is intended to reduce the human error related to having to manually start recording for all meetings. This needs to be teams based, as my team audits and gathers info form third parties using these meetings, so the video is critical for later clarification etc. Company wide policies won't work, as non of the executives want their meetings recorded unless on…

  18. Add more flexability with video layout in a meeting

    Add better flexability to change video sizes, which screens they show on etc. Also ability to have a set of templates and custom templates for meeting layout that can be chosen by the organiser when setting up a meeting. Add the ability to brand the meeting appearance by adding images, text, banners, web feeds, screen shares, video positions / sizes, which videos show etc. Would be great for presenting to a client if it can be made to look professional!

  19. Guests Need to View Shared Screens and Receive Mouse Control

    Microsoft Teams needs to add the ability for guests to view shared screens and receive mouse control. This is super important. Businesses meet with business partners and customers all the time. Cisco Webex allows this functionality already.
