  1. Make 'Remove Participant' available whilst dialing

    When dialing out to a PSTN number from a Teams meeting using Audio Conferencing, 'remove participant' only becomes available if the call connects, either by someone answering their phone or it going to voicemail.

    If nobody answers the call or you have dialed wrong, you cannot cancel it before it is answered and it stays as 'calling'.

    The only way to cancel the call is to end the meeting which is inconvenient if other participants have joined successfully.

  2. Add a joining sound when a person joins a meeting

    Currently, there's an awkward wait for people to join meetings and then if you're on a different screen while you wait, there's no announcement if someone has quietly dialled in.
    Having an entry sound when someone joins the meeting would be a great feature and one other platforms have.

    Select the quality for uploading Teams meeting recordings to Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Teams会議をレコーディングしStreamにアップロードされる際の品質は自動的に高品質のみでのアップロードとなります。

    Currently when recordings of Teams meetings are uploaded to Stream, they are uploaded in high quality only.

  5. Disable the chat function when external users join in the Teams meeting

    To block information leaks due to chatting, I would like you to add a meeting policy that can disable the chat function when external users join in the Teams meeting.

  6. Meeting notes for recurring meetings

    Make it easier to have separate meeting notes for each instance of the recurring meeting. Right now, you have to go in and edit the ones from the last instance e.g. we use the meeting notes as the Meeting Agenda that all participants can edit leading up to the meeting. But as soon as one instance is over, we have to first erase last week's agenda and then post the new agenda. These are on-going weekly recurring meetings so adding sections for each instance will get too long quickly.

  7. Hotkey to stop recording

    Currently you can start recording a meeting. To stop recording you have to hit … then stop recording. The Stop Recording needs to be on the main screen or have a hotkey to be able to stop. It would also be nice to get a 3 second count it when the recording starts.

  8. Option to disable anonymous users and allow only invited guests [emails] to join meeting.

    Currently disabling anonymous users from joining Teams meeting also include invited guests. There should be an option to allow guests to join meetings with the invite they were sent and not just anyone.

    Working in an industry with high visibility, we don't want anyone to join our meetings that could leak information to the media. We work with a lot of vendors and disabling the config will also block our vendors from participating in meetings.

  9. Live update of meeting notes

    The meeting notes don't work very well during a meeting. Should work more lika a pad where everyone gets the note content updated live (without having to writer to share screen). Onenote has this feature live, at least sort of (it's often lagging quite a lot, but the ambition is there anyway and it's very useful). I don't care very much of marking/keeping track of whom made an update, just that the updates get there for everyone to see and be able to work with live.

  10. Personal pic as a background during video meeting?

    is there a way to customize background in MS teams to a personal pic as a background during video meeting? Zoom has this option!

  11. Lobby in Live Events AND kickoff and reentry using necessarily the lobby

    it would be interesting to enable lobby at live events

    AND i found a little problem:
    if i enable lobby at a meeting and admite the entrance of a user and, after that, remove him from the meeting, he can re-enter skiping the lobby if he not close the window that he was using to take part in the meeting, but if he closed the window and try to enter again, he necessarily has to pass to the lobby.
    So, my suggestion is that the user always has to ask permission to enter the meeting if the lobby is enable…

  12. Restrict participants to record meeting

    We would like restrict participants to record particular meeting but same time they should be able to present the contents. Only give option to record meeting to organizer or presenter.
    Other tools like Cisco Webex and Zoom meeting has that feature so expecting Microsoft to develop the same.

    Thanks in advance

  13. Streaming music during video calls

    Ability to play/share streaming background music or do DJing in a video call with friends.This would be useful in a virtual coffee break or house party type of scenario. At least Spotify or Yourtube should be supported.

  14. Multi Window Content/Video Sharing

    Being able to have multiple windows of Teams open during a meeting each viewing a different participants video feed or content share.

    During the COVID period we have started running virtual inspections of manufactured equipment which has worked well and will likely find implementation once this period is over, unfortunately however this has left participants clicking through multiple video feeds to see different angles or content share.

    Additionally give the presenter the ability to "push" a certain view to the attendees as assistance to participants that may not have the tech know how to change views themselves.

  15. Ability to move or link a teams meeting chat to the team it relates to

    At the moment, we create meetings (as invites to attendees) in Outlook & within the invite, add Teams Meeting as the tool for attendees to join (used to be Skype).

    These meetings appear in the Teams calendar & attendees can join via this.

    The meeting (in Teams) then has the chat functionality (as well as file sharing, whiteboard, etc) for all invitees.

    It would be good to link or move the associated chat (& files, etc) from a meeting, to the associated Team (if one exists).

    This would help keep all the relevant commentary & files in one Teams area,…

  16. Ability to see all attendees & who is speaking once you share your screen, currently once you share that feature goes away

    Ability to see all attendees & who is speaking once you share your screen, currently once you share that feature goes away.

    Currently when in a meeting you have that bar where you can click on the members and it show who is attending. However it goes away when you share your screen. So now as host/presenter you don't know who is talking or joined the call after you started.

    I would like to see this feature available when you share your screen and only you see it when you are presenting so you can move it to another screen…

  17. 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!

  18. Meeting Options can be Set 1 Time as a Default

    Ability to open 'meeting options' and set your settings one time and not have to do them for every meeting invite - particularly setting who is waiting in the lobby. This becomes very problematic for an executive assistant.

  19. Continue to work in another app while meeting video is moved to a corner compact window

    In skype we had this feature where meeting video could be make into a small compact window and user could continue to work on the computer.
    In teams we can't do this easily. Our doctors, during telemed session with patient like to continue to chart/document care notes while viewing the patient video session in a smaller corner window.
    We are having to do a workaround by sharing an empty notepad screen and minimizing it, then getting the actual window that we need to work on. This brings up a small compact window of patient's meeting video, however recently a toolbar…

  20. Annotate phone numbers on conference call

    When combined with Outlook, we get names of callers in meetings when Outlook knows the number. But when Outlook doesn't have the number -- like when the caller is calling from home or from her personal cell, or it's a customer not in Outlook -- all we get is the phone number. In some of our calls, you have 20 or some phone numbers in the attendees list, and you don't know who they all are.

    I'd like the ability to annotate the phone number somehow in Teams so that when that phone number calls into a meeting, the annotated…
