    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Have end users change participant settings (lobby settings) for Teams meetings

    Just like with Skype for Business have a setting that allows our end users to change the participant settings for Teams Meetings as described here for Skype for Business: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/change-participant-settings-for-skype-for-business-meetings-9175e297-de5f-43b2-8e0f-85cc05e24986

  7. It's distracting to get a chat message when a meeting has started or ended

    This should be a notification option that you can turn off. Currently you see a chat item for your attention. You go to it only to see that the meeting you just started, or just ended, started or ended. You already know that, and the notification is just wasting your time.

    We are happy to announce this feature is released. By default meeting chats will be muted until send a message in the chat, or join the online meeting. To change these defaults, go to your profile picture at the top right of the app, select Settings > Notifications. From there, scroll to the meetings section and open the menu next to Meeting chat notifications.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. Create teams meeting from calendar using OWA

    When using calendar on OWA, there is no way to create a Microsoft Teams meeting. You need to create it from Microsoft Teams instead.

    Please add the functionality to create a meeting from Calendar using OWA

  12. Meeting Policy - presenter permissions

    In Skype, you were able to set your meeting options for any particular meeting. You don't have this option in Teams and everyone from your organization is made a presenter by default, so anyone can mute or remove anyone including the meeting organizer from the meeting. At the very least, we should be able to set an option in the Meeting Policies to not allow entire organization to be presenters, but it would be better if the meeting organizer could decide who if anyone, can have those permissions.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    The option to allow only the meeting organizer to record a meeting is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:

    Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
    - Present
    - Mute All
    - Remove/Add Users
    - Admit Users from Lobby
    - Start/Stop Recording

    For more info, please see the documentation below:

  16. Remove participants from chat or meeting

    I'd like to remove participants from a group chat or meeting. This is similar to what's available in Skype for Business.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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?
