  1. Track participation (meeting attendee log)

    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 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.

      • Allow us to mute individuals but just from our point of view

        Please let us mute individuals during a call. This is not the same as muting that person for everyone in the meeting but just for the person doing the muting. This prevents two people who are next to each other in a meeting from hearing an echo of each other. There are many situations/occurrences where we use our personal computers to be in the same meeting instead of sharing a computer, and Teams doesn't let us mute the person that is sitting right next to us.

        • change "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" to "CLICK HERE to join meeting"

          "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" doesn't look like you can click to to most of our users.

          • Teams Meetings appear to take a lot of CPU (avg 32%)

            When running a Teams Meeting on my Surface Pro i7 (2017), my screen-sharing, video meeting used about 30-32% of my CPU constantly. This seems different than Skype for Business. My battery life went from 100% to 35% over the 2 hour meeting.

            • 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…

                • 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?

                  • Live Events Mute/Unmute Participants for Q&A

                    Allow the producer to unmute/mute participants if they ask a question. So the experience could be, a person asks a question in Live Events, the Producer selects them and announces "We have a question from Bob" and then unmutes Bob and allows Bob to verbally ask his question.

                    • More than 4 video streams in a meeting

                      Hello,

                      Currently in a meeting, one can only see 4 video stream from the 4 users who last spoke.
                      It would be more convenient to be able to see the video streams from all the participants, and also have some the possibility to click on one of the participants name to have their video stream look bigger.

                      Actually any other idea that would allow the possibility to see all the participants will be appreciated.

                      Thank you.

                        It would be great to get meeting notifications. Like 5 mins before... 30 mins before etc based on configuration that user set.

                        • Automatic recording meetings

                          If you know beforehand that a meeting should be recorded then it would be nice to have an option when scheduling the meeting to start recording automatically. This can help with not forgetting to start recording and save some time and effort not having to remember to do it manually.

                          • When joining a Teams meeting, allow Teams to call you on an external line.

                            When joining Skype meetings, I am always prompted to either join the meeting audio via the computer (my headset plugged into my laptop) or to have Skype call me at another number. This feature is critical to me working efficiently as I prefer to use my wireless headset on my office line, or my mobile phone if i know if need to step awy from my caomputer during a call/meeting.

                            • Easy, streamlined, way to invite all of the team to a meeting

                              Please design an easy, streamlined way to invite the whole team to a meeting and not have to invite them individually or in a workaround way such as creating meetings in Teams with no users. This could be something like an everyone button in Outlook to add all team members, or when inviting in teams adding an everyone button and it sends all members an invite. This is being requested through the Tech Community

                                1. I get a Teams meeting invite in Outlook.
                                2. I decline the invite.
                                3. If someone in that meeting posts in Chat, then I get a notification from a meeting I declined! I have to go to Teams and leave the meeting.

                                Additional Info: My meeting invite is through a group list.

                                • Migrate Skype for Business Meetings to Teams

                                  When we migrated from Lync to Skype for Business there was an easy to use tool to convert your Lync meetings to Skype for Business meetings.

                                  When moving to Teams it would be extremely useful to have a tool to do the same thing for Skype for Business meetings.

                                  • Request to enable anonymous join to Teams meetings using Internet Explorer

                                    Currently, anonymous join to the Teams meetings is not allowed when using Internet Explorer by design.

                                    We would like to invite external users to Teams meetings whose environment is Windows 7, so they cannot use Microsoft Edge. Also, they have to use Internet Explorer because they are not allowed to use a third-party browser. Therefore, they have a trouble to join Teams Meetings anonymously.

                                    We would request to improve the function for external users to join Teams meetings anonymously using Internet Explorer.

                                        • Improve reliability of meetings when sharing screens

                                          Just make meetings with screen sharing more reliable for lower bandwidth or weak connections. Over the last week, I've had to switch to regular Skype with my team for meetings where I needed to share a screen with our remote team. Voice ended up dropping in an out and on the remote team's screen, the image lagged a lot. When we switched to Skype, everything worked great!
