I am CEO of a 2000 person company, now, due to corona, running it from home, with 8 hours a day in Teams meetings. It is perfect for us, and I use the chat to ensure efficient meeting management. At first, I liked the «jumping» thumbs up. But in reality, it is very distracting, because you want to look into the camera. Before, it was very clear that when there was movement, there was a new message. Now, I need to check all the time, because everything jumps. Could we go back to the good old thumb?
When having meetings or gatherings it would be lovely to have the choice to see all team members at the same time. It does not matter if there would be smaller thumbnail like videos of all - just nice to see the ones who joins. When working from home we sometimes gather over a "3pm coffee" and then we wish to see all. :)
With the school closed, we will use TEAMS to educate the students. I have comed up with a solution to have tests at home, with the camera and mick on in TEAMS I can monitor the students in front of the computer. What I would like is at Quick way to **** who I see. At the moment I must "Pinn" the student I want to se and it would be better if I just could click on at student and that videofeed came up.
The Rollover text for the icons in new Posts is unreadable, and also hidden behind the cursor. Now that everyone is working from home on Laptops ... and using Teams. I am getting this as a support question from a lot of people. What do the icons each mean, I can't ready the rollover text description.
I also can not grab a screen shot of it with one, note. so the entire flyout / rollover seems to have a bug in the desktop app.
need the ability to screenshare a file within Teams, when I am already on a phone meeting through Teams.
the workaround i am using now is i open another Teams session in a browser, and then screenshare the browser in the phone meeting.
Hello. I have started using teams for my students. I have used the hand in function, where I can assign tasks to my students.
When they hand in their job, I would like more alternatives. At the time now I can write a comment and send to them. But if I am not satisfied I would like the possibility to put diffrent options from a roll down menu. For example "You need to do this again" etc.
Virtual meetings are different than real ones, because you hear everyone at the same volume level. In real meetings you sit at a table and hear people near you louder than ones farther away and you can whisper to them or lean in so you don't disturb others. You can make a comment to your neighbor or ask him a quick question. You can't do such things in virtual meetings, because of the same volume level of all participants, which could lead to not being able to follow the thoughts of the speaker (maybe you were somewhere else with your thoughts or had to leave for a bathroom break) without disturbing everyone else and it is somewhat more separating and less collaborative than real meetings. Additionally, the same volume for all participants leads to only hesitant talking, because nobody wants to disturb the others with minor remarks.
I propose a virtual table where you can choose your seat and have different volume levels depending on the distance to the speaker. Maybe even with the possibility of whispering or leaning in. Currently you can somewhat do this by a direct message to a person, which is not the same. I don't know how you could solve the issue and don't overcomplicate meetings, but I think it would make virtual meetings more like real ones (which is what we want) and thus be worthy some experimentation.

Have a way to see if I'm optional to a meeting or mandatory.
Curently I can see that for other attendees, but I can't see it for myself.
If I was listed in the attendee list it would solve the issue :)
It really is a shame that pure on-premise deployment is not an option at the moment. That means that Governmental Organizations working with classified informations and/or working in dedicated offline infrastructures do not have a natural upgrade path from Microsoft Sharepoint Server 2016 and Skype for Business 2015.
In the EU this is a potential deal-breaker.
This will eventually leave these customers with no other choice than to look for alternatives to the Microsoft products.
