    From within a meeting the share control can be found at the dropdown at the top of the screen if you are currently sharing as well as the floating control box that exists when you are in a meeting.

    Thank you for all your feedback.

  3. full screen only one person from the call

    On a call with more than 2 persons, unless someone is actually presenting his/her screen, the screen is usually split between the others on the call. Its always a split screen, up to four seperate window. But if someone uses its web cam, lets say to show us a white board... we can't make that specific person's web cam presentation full screen.

  4. Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

    Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

    I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

  5. Start a meeting with the mic muted, like Skype and Lync do

    When joining a meeting, the video and mic should be turned off by default and need to be turned on by the user either per session or globally via settings. This is the default behavior for both Skype for Business and Lync 2013 (as I recall).

  7. Save audio / video devices

    On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

  8. Allow meeting participants to mute each other or mute all

    This is a feature of Google Hangouts we use all the time. When someone is in a noisy environment, has a mic/speaker setup that causing feedback, or is banging on their keyboard, they don't always realize it, and it's very useful for someone else to be able to mute the participant who is causing a disruptive amount of noise but not speaking.

    Hi everyone!
    Got some great news to share this feature request is now live to the public!

    Mute someone in a meeting

    Mute individual meeting participants straight from the meeting roster to cut down on background noise. If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to chime in.

    Mute everyone in a meeting

    If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select Mute all. Each individual will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

    Thank you all for the great feedback. We will continue to improve Teams and your feedback is key part in our efforts.

  9. Screen share toolbar obstructing browser tabs

    Issue:
    The MS Teams screen share toolbar obstructs browser tabs in Chrome and Edge. The toolbar does auto-collapse but takes too long (approx. 5 seconds). Skype for Business' toolbar collapses almost immediately. Also the MS Teams toolbar cannot be moved as the Skype for Business one can.

    Workaround:
    Clicking the pin icon on the toolbar twice collapses it immediately but it reappears when you move the cursor near the top of the screen again

    Preferred Solution:
    Make the toolbar collapse immediately when unpinned and make it possible to move it

  10. Allow the camera to be disabled by default

    In my environment, we don't do a whole lot of video conferencing. We do, however, do a whole lot of screen-sharing. Can you please add the ability to disable the camera by default? That way you don't have to scramble to disable it every time you share screens.

    Once you make a selection of whether or not to have your camera enabled or disabled the selection is stickied until you change it the next time around.

  13. identify active speaker

    In Skype you could identify the active speaker by air quotes " " around the Microphone next to the person's name. This was helpful for meeting organizers who needed to mute someone with a distracting background noise (like echos or barking dogs, loud traffic noises, etc). We would like to see this feature come to Teams.
