    • 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.

      • Create a new meeting in teams for iOS

        We need the ability to create a new meeting in Teams for iOS. Right now I can only view existing meetings. Then wait until I’m back at my desktop to create a meeting in Teams for Mac.

        • Unable to share screen in web browser version of Teams

          Within a teams meeting, anyone using the web browser version of Teams is unable to share content with the meeting. Only those on the desktop version can share content.

          • Allow Time Zone selection when scheduling meetings

            You should be able to select a specific timezone (like in Outlook) when schedule meetings - some locations don't observe DST or change to/from DST on different dates which causes meetings to jump around.

              • Add Teams link to any meeting

                Sometimes I accidentally create a meeting in Outlook instead of Teams, or unexpectedly folks are remote that were not planned to be, requiring a call through Teams. There doesn't appear to be a way to create a Teams link from an existing meeting. Right now the workaround is to just create a group chat with those people and call them in, or just create one ad hoc in a Channel. I'd like to be able to view the non-Teams meeting in the Meetings tab (as I can today), and somehow select to generate a Teams link out of it.

                    • 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.

                      • Pausing screen sharing in Teams Meeting

                        Similar to Webex, GoToMeeting, Zoom, and JoinMe...It would be really helpful to be able to pause screensharing vs have to start and stop every time you might need to pause sharing. Hope this capability is coming. Thanks!

                        • 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.

                          • Allow users to configure meeting notification settings

                            Allow users more flexibility for choosing what meeting notifications they receive. For instance, my team has a daily meeting that all participants leave at approximately the same time. Yet I receive a notification every day that the meeting has ended. The notification is unnecessary and annoying. It appears as a chat item, and I have to go to my chat to clear the notification.

                            This is particularly frustrating since Teams is very slow and unresponsive. Every unwanted interaction with Teams just exacerbates my frustration with using the application.

                            • 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.

                              • Parent view

                                Need to put assignments into pupil's Outlook calendar so that they can share a read only link with parents. This would enable parents to see all upcoming assignments for their child, i.e. a parent view of assignments.

                                Alternatively, give parents a code linked to their child's account that will allow them to see selective team content including all assignment details. Teachers should be able to select whether parents can see everything, particular channels, or just assignments.

                                • Present two buttons when cancelling a meeting in a series

                                  When you Cancel Meeting, you can choose Series or Occurrence. It'd be better if it Teams recognized that the meeting is one of a series and presented both buttons at the same time.

                                  • Integrate Meetings Better

                                    Meetings and teams don't integrate and it would be great to create a "Team Meeting" where you could use scheduler for all of the team members and if you had recurring meetings you could keep your notes within Teams. It would also be able to see the calendar for the group or team within the team interface.

                                    • Can't edit a Teams meeting in the future (single occurrence)

                                      I am using Teams app on a Mac to manage a recurring fortnightly meeting. The next one is on 2nd March and I need to make an edit just to that occurrence.

                                      I can't get to that meeting because the calendar navigator doesn't go further than Monday 26th Feb. I can't make the edit in Calendar (Outlook) as I created the meeting in Teams and the edit option doesn't show up in Outlook Calendar.

                                      Any ideas? I'm a little stuck now.

                                      • Allow scheduling a meeting as private (hidden details)

                                        When you schedule a meeting in Outlook you can choose to mark it as private so that it does not show up in your calendar. This is very useful sometimes when you have a calendar everyone is allowed to view. This features appears to be missing in Microsoft Teams.

                                        • Allow users to see past meeting info in Teams Agenda view, not just upcoming meetings.

                                          Currently, the agenda view only shows upcoming meetings in the week. It would be helpful to see past meeting information, even if it's just meetings scheduled that day. For example, an Audio meeting on Teams ran over time and a user inadvertently hung up. The user could not easily log back into the meeting via Teams and had to click on the link in Outlook.
