  1. 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…

    • Notifications for Meetings

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

        • 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!

            • No Chat Notifications When Meeting is Declined in Outlook

              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.

                • The ability to dial into meetings

                  It would be great to be able to join a meeting by dialing in, instead of only being able to join via the Teams app.

                    • 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.

                      • Make headset hangup button end meetings without clicking the red icon

                        When doing a meeting or voice chat in skype, the "answer/hangup" button on my Plantronics headset will end the call/meeting. This is not the case in Teams and I end up having to click the red end call icon. Its a small thing but it would be hugely helpful if teams had the same behavior of Skype and my desk phone.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • Open Teams Meeting in new Window

                              If you have a meeting in Teams this covers the whole Teams window and it is difficult to share other content from within Teams. So I would prefer to have the meeting in a separate window so that you can easily switch between the meeting and other content you want to share.

                              • Please include the ability for "Meet Now" for call bridges vs having to schedule

                                In Skype for business you have the ability to "Meet now" whereas Teams require you to schedule. This can be cumbersome when you really just need a call bridge quickly.

                                • Teams Meetings Audio Conferencing User Experience Consistency

                                  Skype for Business Online PSTN Conferencing had several gaps that resulted in the end user having an inconsistent experience between Skype Audio and PSTN Audio.

                                  It'd be great to see these gaps closed in the Teams Audio Conferencing integration.

                                  - If a user decided to use the "Call-me" function, they were still forced to use their phone keypad (*6) to mute/unmute instead of being able to mute through the app.

                                  - The "Active Speaker" indication only functioned if the speaker and the participant viewing were both connected via Skype Audio. This introduced a challenge for moderators trying to figure out…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Use separate chats for each instance of a recurring meeting

                                      For long-running recurring meetings, such as weekly all-hands meetings, the text conversation can get very, very long, upwards of several hundred messages. This means every message in those conversations results in a notification that can take several seconds to load.

                                      A solution would be to have one text conversation per instance of a recurring meeting, which means a) you're less likely to be tagged for a notification because you've posted in it before and b) if you do get a notification, it only takes a second to load up the entire conversation.

                                        Team Subgroup Meeting
                                        Allow the ability to create a meeting in a channel that only sends the meeting invitation to channel members, and not the entire Team site. Or when creating a meeting in a channel, allow the ability to edit which team members would receive the invite.

                                        • Invite / Add Distribution List to Scheduled Meeting Invite

                                          Currently unable to add DLs to the 'Invite People' field when creating a new / scheduled Teams meeting.
                                          Would like to add a DL to a Teams meeting instead of adding people one by one.
