  1. Unable to start meeting as organizer. Stuck in virtual lobby.

    Unable to start meeting as organizer. Scheduled Teams meeting via Outlook as the organizer. Went to join meeting as the organizer, signed into the desktop/app version of Teams, and was held in the lobby - waiting for someone to start the session/let me in. Unfortunately, given I was the creator/organizer, no one could get in - as I was stuck in the same lobby.

    Any ideas on what may be going on?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Team meeting shared notes

    Please allow to link a OneNote shared notes with Teams meeting. The same option is now available in Skype for Business meetings.

  7. Pause music/audio

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Polls and Forms in Meetings

    There have been several members on the Tech Community who have asked to have forms and polls in meetings. Currently can have notes, whiteboard, files etc. Snap polls were a part of SfB but having Microsoft Forms and Polls (whether via Polly or a native app) would be an improvement and a much more interactive meeting! Best, Chris

  13. Invite optional attendees

    In outlook you can declare mandatory participants and optional participants. In Teams I cannot tag participants as optional. All become automagically mandatory.

  14. 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…

  15. Provide attendee activity and engagement data post meeting

    Currently other solutions (such as Zoom and Clearslide) can provide a report at the end of each meeting which contains information on attendee activity and their level of engagement. Having this capability is essential to drive increased uptake of Teams for meetings, specifically those that are customer facing.

  17. 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?

  18. make "call me back" a default option for all meetings

    Like SfB: provide an option to default to "call me back" when joining a meeting. In its current state, if Teams can't connect to a meeting for any reason, the user never gets the option to "call me back"

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
