  1. Ability for private chat/call during larger (political) meeting

    During larger meetings and webinars it is desirable to have the opportunity for a private conversation (chat or call) with one of the participants without disturbing the others. For example, party members can consult each other during a (political) meeting to be able to take a joint position among the others. It is also useful during a webinar to be able to discuss the subject with a fellow student without disturbing the presentation. This option can be enabled or disabled by the organizer.

  2. chat notifications

    Turn off chat notifications for a meeting that you are currently in. The stream of chat notifications for people who are commenting in the meeting get in the way and make it difficult to contribute to the chat team.

  3. Allow organizer to set someone as co-host

    We were enjoying this feature in Zoom. But we no longer enjoy since our organization moved to Teams. Once somebody creates a meeting link via Teams they can set another person as Co-host. If the meeting creator isn't available or running late, the Co-host can moderate the meeting. Builds trust.

  4. Get data for anonymous join users.

    Get data for anonymous join users.

    Anonymous join is a nice feature, but data such as IP address should be provided to the administrator.

    As an admin, I need data to keep track of who attends corporate meetings.

    There should be no information leakage or unnecessary participation.

  5. Stop people joining a meeting after the allotted time

    When a meeting has passed, it should no longer be possible to join that event any longer (given a certain grace period)

    Example: A meeting runs from 14:00 to 15:00, and finishes at 15:10. I should not be able to join the same meeting the day after. I suggest if the link is used, an error should be shown to the participant that the meeting has finished.

  8. Regarding the "Blur my background" feature

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    背景をぼかす機能について
    Regarding the "Blur my background" feature


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Teams 会議の背景をぼかす機能の利用要件として、一定以上の PC 端末のスペックが必須となっています。
    PC 端末のスペックに関わらず背景をぼかす機能を利用可能とする機能を要望します。
    Currently the "Blur my background" feature for Teams meetings can only work if the PC device has a certain level of specifications.
    We hope this feature can be made usable regardless of the PC device specifications.

  10. Support for Live Event (streaming) of a Teams Meeting

    A big chunk of local and central gov meetings with councillors, deputies as participants need to be open to the public by law.

    Teams Meetings is an excellent format for these meetings but the platform should have the possibility of streaming these Teams Meeting sessions through Live Events in real time.

    The ask is to have a Teams Meeting as the source of a Live Event.

  12. Text message Teams meeting invite

    Create a way to send a text message with the link for a Teams meeting. This would be helpful for external guests who are joining a meeting from their smartphone.

  13. Return to the slide where you left in PowerPoint

    When presenting a PowerPoint and then share something else like an application, for example doing a demo and switch back to the PowerPoint, to have visible the slide where you left before doing the demo. Currently, it returns to the first slide of the presentation.

    Live Meeting and Skype could do this

  14. Reminder to start recording the meeting.

    Please add a feature that pops up once the meeting has started to remind the scheduler of the meeting to begin recording the same. It is mandatory for some organisations to record the meetings and sometime one forgets to do so.

  15. Teams meetings notifications and reminders - people are missing meetings

    People are missing meetings because you don't get notified about a meeting you are invited to - particularly if that meeting was created for a Channel-wide scope, and not entered as a mandatory attendee.
    Also, there is no reminder of a meeting about to happen.

  16. Sidebar Conversations during meetings

    During meetings, especially with several attendees, sometimes you need to be able to ask another participant a question without distracting the whole group. It'd be great to be able to select another meeting attendee to have a 'sidebar conversation' with while the rest of the meeting continues in the background. I would still want to be able to hear the meeting while talking to the other person, but to have it in the background.

  17. Toggle Button to Remove participants strip at bottom of Meetings Screen.

    Participants strip at bottom of Meetings Screen takes unnecessary space on window as participants list on righthand is sufficient.

  18. Timer during meeting should have lap/overshoot button to indicate a hard stop of presentations

    When we have presentations over teamz , to have hard stop somebody needs to monitor separately.
    Today teams show total call length.
    But if we have feature to have hard stop configuration , it will help better.
    This will help how much more time we have for meeting and how much excess time did the speaker took.

  19. Join Button in Teams Calendar

    When scheduling a meeting that is shorter than 30 minutes in duration or if you have more than 2 overlapping meetings, the Join button does not appear in the Team Calendar and you'd have to either right-click on the meeting and choose Join or go into the calendar entry and click Join.

  20. Support screen sharing for large 21:9 monitors

    I have a big ultrawide monitor - 3440x1440. When I try using the desktop sharing feature, Teams silently does not work - people just see black screen. This works well in Skype for business, so please make it work in Teams!
