  1. click to dial

    Add Click-to-dial for tel protocol. Our staff makes a lot of calls and has to copy and paste phone numbers right now. Would love to see an option for Teams to handle "tel:" protocol or another option for the ability to click-to-dial phone numbers within a web browser. This needs to be supported on Windows and Mac.

    • BToE

      We need BToE support with our Polycom deskphones. Without it, we will have to always run Skype for Business side by side to sign in our users to the phones.

      • Barge, Whisper, Listen In

        I found a similar request for Skype here (https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/8900035-monitoring-features-silent-monitor-whisper-bar). I haven't been able to find documentation on implementation of the following so wanted to throw it out there just in case.

        1) Whisper - Managers or supervisors can tell agents what to say (advice or answers) without customer hearing them.

        2) Barge In - Managers or other users can jump on a call without permission from the original user to help with a call (especially useful in call center situations).

        3) Listen - Managers or other users can listen in on a call, given they have the access…

          • Notify Admins of Firmware updates on phone equipment

            Please setup a portal and email offering to notify admins when a tenant will be updating the physical phones (Polycom/Yealink/etc.). We want to allow Microsoft to manage these updates, but would like notification to allow support to better troubleshoot potential issues.

              • Allow for one-off calls without creating a contact

                Maybe I'm missing it, but it looks like Teams wants me to create a contact in the Chat section before I am able to place a Teams call to someone. I do a lot of one-off calling and don't want to litter my Contact Lists or Groups

                • Add hang-up / end call confirmation noise

                  When a 1:1 call ends from the opposite end, there is no confirmation noise that they have hung up, so I always spend a few seconds finding Teams again, opening it up, looking around for a End Call button, only to realize that the other person beat me to it and I'm not on the call anymore. It would be helpful to have a noise confirmation that the call is ended.

                  • 5-7 second delay before calling end can hear when picking up call with Polycom phone

                    When a call comes in from the Auto Attendant / Call Queue and the call is picked up on a Polycom phone there is a 5-7 second delay before the calling end can hear audio. This delay is pretty long and causes confusion, it should be 2 seconds at the most.

                    • When i call someone, I can't hang up the call. Maybe i called the wrong person or I changed my mind.

                      I want to be able to hang up on someone if they haven't answered yet. Sometimes I call the wrong contact or I realize they're not available but I can't disconnect that call without disconnecting my entire call.

                      • Call should be picked up on multiple device

                        When I open Team on desktop (Mac), if someone calls me, the call can only be picked up on the desktop. There’s no notification nor the ability to pick up or join the call on my iPhone.

                        • DTMF Tones do not work when in a call

                          If i use teams to make an external call (using my skype for business phone number) the DTMF tones are not detected. So if i'm on a call that asks me to enter my PIN or some other input, it does not work

                            • Drop Teams

                              This is more a thought that an idea, but I have worked with MS software for almost as long as it has be available and this is starting to feel like you are pushing your version of Facebook into a product that is so overloaded with features it is difficult to use. I am never sure if my posts are private or public most of the time I can't find what I am looking for and the Voice/Video drags my system down and the audio locks and skips. It feel like I have the latest version of Zune. Please, you…

                              • Use Contacts For Inbound Calls

                                Use the contact list to look up callers name and company based on the caller ID. Ideally this could also use the global address book from Exchange but would be fine to just use the local contacts.

                                Also, when creating a contact associate the call history with the contact so the call history list shows name and company rather than just number.

                                    • What is the true purpose behind the service address (SA) vs the billing address(BA)

                                      I assume the request for billing address is to communicate paper mails where digital communication is not possible due to either geographic or physical constraints.

                                      The service address would be know the most used location/geographically fenced location for offering a service as those services cannot be offered reliably beyond the confines of a fenced location like emergency services or signal quality services.

                                      Third party hardware authenticators with gps or non gps geolocation/timing could enforce such a logic to support the service.

                                      Take the case of a homeless traveller with a PO Box and without a place to call home will…

                                        We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Skype for Business and would like to have a report with below data captured on a per user basis :

                                        1. Name of Devices logged in From
                                        2. Duration of the Session
                                        3. IP address of the Device
                                        4. Mac Address of the Device (Being able to use this for maintaining inventory - for example Polycom Skype enabled devices)
                                        5. Fimrware of the Device
                                        6. Number of calls made from each device

                                        Understand some information we can get from the call quality dashboard - not all of them

                                        • Enable Polycom desk phone to join a channel meeting, not just a generic teams meeting

                                          With the VVX phones, you can click to join a meeting in Teams, UNLESS this meeting is a channel specific meeting. Please fix this bug/issue. Thanks!
