  3. Option of adding an alert when a person joins

    For internal meetings, often people join and those who are in conversation are not aware that new participants are on.

    Add a feature to optionally alert active participants (with subtle audio cues) when new participants have joined or have left.

  4. Move Conversations Between Teams or Channels

    From time to time a conversation will begin in the wrong Team or Channel. It would be helpful if we could move a conversation and threaded replies to a different Team or Channel.

  7. Add ability to remove items/choices in Share area (Meeting-->Join-->Share

    Here is the situation: I set up a Teams meeting, Join the meeting, press the Share button and 7 PowerPoint presentations show up in the share 'area' as selections. Several are old that I used a few weeks ago and no longer want to use. Another problem is that not enough of the titles show to know which is the one I want, only the one I want is actually open in PowerPoint. I'd like to be able to limit the choices or selections I have in the share area to only the files I have open or, be able…

  8. Provide Meeting Buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] buttons as Toolbar buttons during Meetings

    When conducting meetings, the meeting buttons window is useful but obstructing the presentation area. To fix this, can we introduce a Toolbar (Like Windows Media Player in olden windows) that has the meeting buttons [Video|Mic|ScreenShare|EndCall] during the call. This helps to manage calls, mic without having to restore the meeting snippet.

  9. Disabling Microsoft Teams features

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams の機能の無効化について
    Disabling Microsoft Teams features


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams の ​"チャット" "チーム" "ファイル" "会議" "アプリ" などの多数の機能があるが、ユーザーが使用する機能を選択して、使用しない機能を無効化できる設定機能の拡充を要望いたします。
    There are lots of features for Microsoft Teams like "Chat", "Team", "File", "Meetings", "App" etc, but we hope that a setting feature will be implemented to let users choose which features they are going to use and disable the rest of the unused features.

  10. Add Chess, Checkers, TIc Tac Toe Etc

    Add interactive games like these as app options to Microsoft Teams. This is especially helpful right now when most co-workers are working from home and it's hard to stay connected. This can be one interactive way for co-workers to stay connected in a fun and social way with others by taking turns throughout the day when time allows to make your move in chess, tic tac toe etc against your co-workers and bring some light fun and breaks to your day. I got more ideas on the game formats, etc if you want to get in contact with me through…

  11. Notification for Completed Tasks

    It would great if the creator of a task gets notified when the person it's assigned to completes it. I can't keep going back and forth and checking to see what's complete and ready for review, it would be very beneficial to my teams productivity to get a message or an email saying the task I assigned someone was completed.

  12. Allow site admin to set a timeout to reset Status for Users

    I notice several users who forget to reset status days after setting it to something like "busy" or "away".

    Allow the admin to configure a timeout like 12 or 24 hours to reset status on behalf of their users.

  15. per user default notifications

    allow each user to have a setting for "default notifications" that all channels would use initially until explicitly changed. Then add an option for each channel notification to be "default value" which would inherit from this setting. This would allow users to be notified according to the default value, but still be able to change it for each specific channel

  16. Control team visibility with admin

    Infrequently used teams are moved to Hidden Teams.
    If you move to Hidden Teams, you may also make new posts.
    However, members are missed because they are not notified.
    Team members need to look at this.
    Therefore, we hope that the administrator will implement a function to move from [Hidden Team] to [Your Team].

  17. Eye contact through camera iris is key

    A 4k Microsoft designed Surface/Teams PC monitor with embedded high quality camera, mic, screen as membrane speaker (Sony TV Type). Set-up is optimized for Video Conferencing but still a top monitor. Camera is fixed behind screen in the center and 1/3 down (Possibly as a separate and up-gradable module, bayonet insert and twist to lock with built in USB mating or short USB cable plugging straight to adjacent USB on monitor). Software algorithm in Teams is optimized to always locate speaker video feeds to be centered between human iris' location or nose bridge over the camera iris. That way video…

  18. Tracking Tasks

    Currently, to see how other team members are doing with their tasks (or if they have late tasks), as a supervisor I have to be assigned to the task as well, but that makes it hard to navigate to my tasks.

    Instead of just a "My Tasks" tab, I wish there was a way to see how other team members are doing with their tasks without having to assign myself the task.

  19. Provide different colors for various status options

    Provide more colors for various status options that already exist. (ex. purple "in a call", black "presenting", orange "be right back", pink "busy")

    I think this would be of great benefit to the program because red is used for several different status's and this is very confusing.

    So come on, Guys!!! Surely with a whole rainbow spectrum of color to choose from you can add a few more, right?! .

  20. Play YouTube through teams

    It would be great to have the functionality to play YouTube videos directly through teams so that all involved in the chat can watch a video together. This is a function that platforms like jitsy already allow and it would be great in the virtual classroom.
