  1. Mute

    Ability to control who has access to muting all other meeting participants.

    In other meeting platforms (Webex, GoTo Meeting), only the meeting host or delegates hosts have the ability to mute everyone else in the meeting. In Teams, everyone can mute all other participants and this is a concern for companies switching over from those platforms.

    Can we create an option where only the meeting host has the ability to mute all other participants?

  2. 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.

  3. Option to only allow meeting organizer to record video meeting

    Have an option (like BlueJeans) to only allow the meeting organizer or moderators to record the meeting, since right now anyone in the organization can record the meeting.

  4. Enable annotation of PowerPoint presentations within the meeting

    Skype for Business enabled annotation of PowerPoint slides while sharing them in the meeting. We depend on this feature to facilitate interactive meetings, workshops and trainings. Please consider adding this feature to Teams as well.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. 'Add All Team Members' your meeting.

    'Add All Team Members' your meeting button!
    Rather than individually inviting people, or hoping that everyone 'Adds Meeting to Calendar' an option to 'Invite All' would be great.

  9. setting to admit all waiting in lobby before meeting starts

    For meetings with large groups, the presenter cannot monitor those waiting in the lobby to admit them. there should be a setting prior to the meeting to allow all, without needing to admit them.

  10. 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.

  11. Integrate OneNote, Planner into Meeting Notes

    1. When having a Teams meeting based on a channel/Team, I want to use OnNote instead of "Meeting Notes" 
    2. In OneNote, be able to add the Meeting Invite information 
    3. In the note, it should separate who attended and who was invited but didnt not attend 
    3B. Make these actual attendees list editable 
    4. Add tasks to the OneNote that you can assign users 
    5. From those OneNote tasks, auto create Planner tasks. 
    6. When the meeting concludes, you can go to the channel and see the OneNote/Meeting Minutes as a tab 
    7. Should see the Planner Tasks from…

  12. 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"

  13. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. Assign Nickname to Meeting Attendees Attending by Phone

    When meeting attendees join by phone (ie. through a conference bridge), it is difficult to identify who they are. If there was an option to assign a name or nickname to the phone number (ie. 555-5555 = Bob, 555-4444 = Sally), it would be a lot easier to manage - especially if the call goes on for a long time. If there are a lot of callers, this would make it easier to determine who is who.

    This would be best if the name was assigned for everyone to see, but would also work if individuals could privately assign nicknames.

  17. Teams Meetings appear to take a lot of CPU (avg 32%)

    When running a Teams Meeting on my Surface Pro i7 (2017), my screen-sharing, video meeting used about 30-32% of my CPU constantly. This seems different than Skype for Business. My battery life went from 100% to 35% over the 2 hour meeting.

  18. Allow uploading/linking Microsoft PowerPoint file to meeting

    Skype for Business has the ability to 'upload' a Microsoft PowerPoint file which then pushes out to all the meeting attendees. This makes it possible for the presenter to quickly flip between slides without the lag caused by redrawing the screen over low-bandwidth connections.

    This ability to flip slides on a shared file is essential for a smooth flowing meeting.

    Listing to a multiple meeting attendees reading out what screen they're on, 'oh, it's coming... it's blurry now (redrawing)... etc.', every time the slide changes is so unproductive.

    Teams needs an S4B equivalent feature where the entire slide deck and…

  20. Rename call in participant

    Is there a way to rename a call in user in MS Teams meetings, e.g, if you have someone come in via phone only and you want to associate a name with the phone number. In other conferencing apps you can rename a call in user.
