  1. Read receipts makes Teams unusable on some chats

    When the read receipts were introduced, they added so much overhead that frequently the chat just freezes for several seconds. Turning them off improves the situation considerably, hence why I'm blaming it.

  2. Add a bio break button so we can politely step away from a meeting

    Sometime I need to make coffee or *** but don't want people calling out my name thinking I'm not paying attention. Add a button for BRB

  3. The People Need More Emojis!!!

    Teams simply needs to have more Emoji diversity. The current emojis are beyond depauperate. They should at a minimum have as many smile face emojis as the Apple products.

  4. Talkie-Walkie Mic during a Conference

    Instead of muting our mic everytime due to background noises we can rather have a Talkie-Walkie functionality so when we click and hold on a button we can talk (can listen others simultaneously) and it stops when releasing the button.

  5. Only show team members which have Planner tasks in Charts

    Only show team members which have Planner tasks in Charts. It currently also shows Team members which have zero tasks making it difficult to reference in large teams

  6. Integrate teams into file explorer

    It would be great to have teams available within file explorer in the same way that OneDrive is. This would completely revolutionise the way people use file servers and collaborate with Teams. Saving directly to Teams and pulling files directly from Teams without having to figure out or retrain staff who aren’t very IT literate.

  7. Option to create a meeting, from channel post

    Using menu access for new item in posts tab, be able to create a TEAM meeting from this.
    Attached Pic has better explination.

    Usefull when item recieved from channel email address, and needs to be better discussed. Create meeting icon on bottom of screen, allows using subject but does not tie back to original post.

  9. Video from my main camera (MS Lifecam Cinema) is dark in MS Teams.

  10. auto completion of participants in meeting notes in One Note

    ForTeams Meetings scheduled via MS Outlook, from Outlook meeting window there is a button to take "Meeting Notes". This creates a One Note with details about agenda and participants. It includes a list of invitees, but it does not ticks off whether the invitees are participating in the meeting or not, we have to tick them off manually.
    For Skype meetings via MS Outlook, it actually automatically fills which invitee are participating, but not for Meetings.

    The suggestion request is that for Teams Meettings the participation shall be automatically logged in the One Note meeting notes.

  11. Display scheduled meeting time along with In a call/Meeting banner on any ones profile

    I wish to see the time until any one is busy in any pre scheduled meeting. So that when I see their profile I could get information like the person is busy in meeting for next 2 hours something like that instead of showing just "IN A MEETING" or "IN A CALL"
    Example:
    "In a Meeting till 15:30"

  12. Scheduled meetings should be joinable on specified day, date and time.

    Dear Teams Team,

    Our organization is using Teams to deliver daily/weekly lectures.

    When an organizer schedules a meeting(lecture) to take place on a specific day and time and sets its re-occurrence on daily or weekly basis, the team members should not be able to join it on any other day.

    Currently teams allows team members to join any of the scheduled meetings irrespective of the actual day as per system clock. This creates problems when students join wrong day meeting, while teacher is delivering in some other day. Members face problem hearing voice, viewing shared screen etc.

    Please look into…

  13. Disable student participant cameras

    Dealing with student privacy laws teachers are asked to not engage in video conferencing with students in online platforms. We use the video elements to staff meetings regularly but when dealing with students, we need a function just like the audio muting feature but for muting the video as well.

  14. Show upcoming meeting info on main display of Microsoft Teams Room Systems

    Rather than just showing the time on the main display of a room system it would be good to show any upcoming meetings like the in room touch panel does. Saves the user having to wake the touchpanel to check an upcoming booking in the room.

  15. Show my own thumbnail, activity, and microphone status even when my video is off.

    Show my own thumbnail, activity, and microphone status even when my video is off. My own thumbnail should look just like any other user's thumbnail and show voice activity, microphone status, etc.

    The attached image shows a video thumbnail, but with video off my thumbnail should show the circle "KF" or my profile image and get the purple "talking" treatment, show microphone status, etc. Just like every other user in chat.

  16. Show the microphone mute state in the local user thumbnail.

    The video and avatar thumbnails show microphone mute state for other users. It should display for yourself as well. Attached image shows me muted in the controls, but my video thumbnail shows me as not muted.

  17. Teams video conference for more than 4 people

    We were looking to do a video conference with my team but it looks like only 4 people can display. It would be nice to increase that number now that we have the entire team remote. Not sure this is possible today through configuration or setup but i was told not.
