  1. Be able to choose different device for ringing

    When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
    Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.

  2. Team Templates

    A team template!! Much like sharepoint document site or site templates that contain a specific layout and set of documents this would be amazing for a team template. We could deploy a team for each project we had that had a preset assignment of planner tasks and documents attached to it and a preset of channels that goes with that team. Could really make a big difference in the way we deploy and use teams.

  3. Drag and Drop attachments

    It really slows us down to have to click Attachment and browse the finder to find an image. Would prefer drag and drop.

    This item is still completed, HOWEVER many of you have reported a new issue: drag/drop does not work when you are taking a file directly from email (i.e. Outlook) and trying to drop it into Teams. I experience the same problem every day, too!

    If you’d like this function, please add your votes to this UserVoice item for that specific drag/drop ask: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/16927345

    Thanks and hope you’re having a great day.

    Sincerely,

  4. Lock the Video Spotlight

    In Skype for Business hosted meetings, there is a feature called "Lock the Video Spotlight" that allows you to choose a video feed that's displayed to all participants. This feature does not appear to be in the Teams client today, and it doesn't appear on the Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams Capabilities Roadmap.

    In some Teams meetings I want all my participants to just view one presenters video stream and not have the 4 participant split view. We need a way for the Teams meeting host to force their video to be prominent from the participants view.

  5. Ability to Mute a Conversation Thread

    Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

    Muting of conversation threads is available to the public. Just like muting a chat, turning off notifications to a channel conversation will stop you from receiving updates for that specific conversation.

    To turn off notifications for specific conversations

    • Go to the beginning of a conversation in a channel
    • Go to the top right corner of the original message in the conversation thread and select More options … > Turn off notifications.
  6. Add quiet hours to notifications

    I like having notifications on my mobile device, but would like the option to silence notifications for after hours and weekends. Potentially, selectively per channel/team.

    Slight correction. This is being flagged as completed as it is now in the public ring.
    Teams cloud meeting recording is now available world-wide as a Preview! Please try this feature out in your Teams meetings and let us know how we can improve it!

    Additional information.
    Admin doc is located at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/cloud-recording
    (Biggest thing is to be sure to check the pre-requisites.)

  8. Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

    Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

    Thank you for your feedback – Presence for Teams users is supported on Outlook/Office 2013+ and the latest Teams desktop build. Skype for Business is no longer required to be installed on the machine.

  9. Pop Out/Dedicated conference & meeting window for Teams Meeting

    If would be good to have a pop out dedicated window during conference call, meetings and screen sharing session like Skype for business.
    Currently it is very inconvenient to continue work on TEAMS without getting calls window minimized.

  10. Allow removal of people from Group Chats

  11. Hide, Archive, and Delete chat threads!

    Teams is way to cluttered when you have several chats. It is difficult to see new messages when they come in. I like a very clean and simple tool and if you could manage options that let you delete threads and also that would let you choose to clear all activity and history upon closing the App that would be great. As it is I have a bunch on inactive threads that are always in the activity list and they are old and not active any longer. Other than this I really like the UI and the functions of the…

    Additional clarification as to what was fixed in this feature request.

    This request is done except for Delete Private chat. Delete Private Chat is still Under Review and therefore will be pulled into its own topic; no decision has been made to yet if this will be done or not.

    What is complete are the following:

    1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
    2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
    3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads that appear when you click the Chat icon on the left-side app bar).
    4. The ability to mute your private chat threads. (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads…

  12. Reporting Capabilities

    We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

    We would like to have data capturing:
    1. Number of users enabled
    2. Number of daily active unique users
    3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
    4. Number of teams created
    5. Number of teams deleted
    6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
    7. How many calls made in Teams
    8. Number of files shared in channels
    9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

    This item was completed.

    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.

  14. Allow organizer to end meetings

    People should not have to manually leave meetings in order for them to end. We have had several people forget to manually leave meetings, and the channel continues to show that a meeting is in progress when in fact it has ended.

    The organizer of channel meetings should be able to 'end' meetings altogether instead of simply leaving the meeting space.

    As stated last week, based on the volume of recent feedback, we fast-tracked adding the ability for meeting organizers to end a meeting for all participants with the click of a button. This was released to the public ring today.

    In addition, the team has begun working on an option requiring everyone other than the meeting organizer to go thru the lobby. Once that feature is available, attendees will be placed in the lobby when rejoining the meeting. (Please see this UV item – https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38309602).

    Thank you,

  15. Join Meeting Button

    When I schedule a meeting as a Skype Meeting it adds a "Join Meeting" button to the Outlook reminder that pops up. That button does not exist when I schedule a Teams Meeting. It should.

    Without that button I have to double click to go into the calendar item, locate the hyperlink to "Join Teams Meeting", click that, which opens my web browser, and then the web browser tries to launch the Teams app, but first asks me for confirmation, which requires another click. You've added several layers of unnecessary clicks which impede my ability to join a meeting.

    Just…

  18. don't switch to "away", just because I'm using a different application (i'm still at work!)

    The availability status should indicate whether or not someone is available, which means they are available to chat.

    So it does not make sense to switch my status to away, just because I'm answering email or do something else on my computer.

    The fix for this is officially completed! For the specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you are still active on the device, there was still a small % of users who saw the broken behavior, but as of today, all should be working correctly. Please note this was a backend fix, so no client update is needed.

    If you believe you are still having an issue, please feel free to capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks everyone – and enjoy!

    You can now remove yourself from group chats! Just click the overflow menu next to the chat and select Leave. You’ll still have access to chat history up until you left.
