  2. Teams meeting lobby - allow "selected people" to bypass lobby

    With the new "Only me" option for bypassing the lobby, this puts huge onus on organisers who might not normally expect to attend a meeting but where the meeting has a requirement to hold particpants int eh lobby.

    For example ...

    Person A sets up a MS Teams meeting that we will use to teach a random group of students about a topic. Person A sets the lobby to "only me" and invites person B as a "presenter". They also invite 100 random students.

    On the delivery day Person A arrives and admits person B from the lobby shortly before…

  3. I want you to be able to control the notification sound for lobby waiting.

    A notification tone sounds when there are users waiting in the lobby.
    If this notification sound is present during the meeting, it will interfere with the meeting.
    Therefore, please implement the function that controls this notification sound.

  4. Allow hide/collapse command meeting bar

    During a meeting or a call, it could be allowed to hide/collapse the command bar where it contains those commands like video, mute, add participants even when moving the mouse on normal screen. Today this bar is only hidden when you do not move the mouse.

  5. Allow Users To Register for Teams Webinar

    Have the ability for a host to create a webinar event page that can be shared externally/internally. This page would contain meeting details and agenda of a Teams webinar.

    Those interested could then register for the webinar and receive an email confirmation containing an ics calendar appointment. The Teams host could then view and manage who is registering for their webinar event.

    Adobe and WebEx do this.

  6. Pop out for video/live events/meetings

    During live seminars or video conferences it would be helpful to pop out the session into a separate window so that we have full access to the teams main app during these sessions. It is distracting to have to switch to different chats even when though we already have the pop out chats.

  7. Stop Recording on Exit

    We need an option/pop-up to stop recording on meeting exit. At the moment if someone who is recording a meeting exits the meeting, the recording continues forever. What's worse is that the person who started the recording is the only one who can stop it. I "get" that part of the reason why only one person owns the recording is because of the need to associate the recording with a particular Microsoft Steam account... so what I propose are two things:


    1. On exit, if you are recording, you are given a prompt to also end recording or leave it running.

  8. Join a meeting without going through the browser

    Notify Teams meeting invitation emails in Outlook.
    Click on the meeting URL in the invitation email.
    At this time, the browser starts and opens the desktop client.
    Operation via this browser is inconvenient.
    I want to join the meeting with a desktop client without going through the browser.

    We’re pleased to announce that all meeting join entry points have been addressed in Outlook for Windows and Mac.
    - For customers keeping current on the monthly release channel, this update has been released.
    - Customers keeping current on the semi-annual release channel for Outlook will get this this Summer, with a gradual roll out scheduled to begin in mid-July.

  9. Meeting invitation customization

    I'd like to see an option to customize the teams meeting invitation sent from outlook add-in the same way it can be done in Skype for business.
    Attached is a screenshot from sfb admin center.

  10. Remote control on linux

    First of all I really thank you to create the Teams Linux client. What would be really useful now is having available also for the Linux client the Remote Control feature (during the screen sharing).

  11. 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?

    This issue is in our backlog, but we wanted to share a workaround that may help in the meantime. You may run into this issue if your Outlook client is logged into a different account than your Teams client.

    As a workaround, when you join the meeting, make sure your Outlook client and Teams client are logged into the same account that the meeting was scheduled from.

  12. forward meeting invites within teams

    Ability to forward meetings and/or add attendees when you are not the original meeting creator.

    Currently if Employee A invites me to a meeting I cannot invite Employee B, C, or D unless I forward from Outlook. This seems to add complexity and restrains my ability to stay within the Team ecosystem. I would like the ability to add attendees or quickly forward meetings to other members from the Meeting room and/or the Chat box.

  13. Teams meeting - lock the meeting

    The meeting host should have the possibility to look/anlock a meeting, so that no one additional can join the meeting after it is looked. Excample: in a director meeting I'm invited to present a special topic. Then, I have to leave and the meeting host can lock the meeting so that I cant't join again. Otherwise I could join and maybe eavesdrop .

  14. Be able to see participants and chat at the same time

    On the right side, it would be great to be able to see the people in the meeting as well as the chat at the same time. Toggling back and forth is not efficient.

  15. Merge two conference calls/meetings into one

    Usually when we dial into a conference call meeting, it requires us to input extension number, meeting room numbers or etc. So when I want to combine two meeting into one, I can merge calls in Skype for Business, but cannot find the same feature in Teams. Is there any roadmap to add this feature back to Teams?

  16. OneNote Meeting Details (outlook) integration

    Currently there is a "Meeting Details" feature in OneNote or "Meeting Notes" feature in outlook. This feature allows you to link a OneNote page to a meeting, it pulls in the meeting details, and using skype it automatically tracks who is in attendance.

    Please expand this feature to Teams so that it automatically tracks who is in attendance. It would also be nice to expand upon this feature to have it automatically create pages when a meeting is scheduled for that team.

  17. 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…

  18. Allow iPad users to change their background on a Teams call

    At the moment iPad users cannot change their background during a MS Teams call. It would be great if we get that functionality available for all iOS users so we can use theme backgrounds during meetings.

  19. Personal Muting of Other Participants

    I would like a feautre that enables you to mute other participants personally (only that we can't hear them, but others can).

  20. Adjust the volume of individuals in a group call

    Like discord I would like to adjust the volumes of each member in the call.
    This is to adjust volume levels to the microphones they are using, or lower background noise from other participants.
