  4. Mute chat notification pop ups while in a meeting

    while in a meeting and people are typing in chat you get a pop up notification which covers up the text box for the chat, this gets very annoying as i'm not able to use the text chat when other people are also typing. i would like there to be a function where you can block/mute/turn off these useless and bothersome pop ups and im sure many people would appreciate if this was fixed

  7. Create a task in Outlook from an item in Teams

    I use my email inbox as a to-do list. When I get an email of something I need to, I mark it as a task to complete. That way they're all in one place. But if someone posts in Teams with a request for me to do something, look something over, etc., I can't mark that as a "to-do" or a task unless I manually type it into an Outlook task/reminder. Since Teams can integrate with the Outlook calendar anyway, could we have the ability to create a task from an item (chat, file, etc.) in Teams?

  9. Filters

    Re video calls: Us young people are used to the beautifying filters of Snapchat and Instagram. Especially when working from home, popularized by COVID-19, it would be nice to have some simple filters for the videos. No, I don’t need to look like a puppy or have a crown, but being able to wear no makeup at home and feel presentable would be clutch!

  11. Add ability to screenshot in chat.

    I think it would be very useful to add the ability to capture a screenshot right in a chat. Cisco Jabber has this feature and it's very handy.

  17. Integrate Outlook groups and Teams

    When creating an Outlook group it creates similar functionality as creating a team in Teams. But there seams to be no connection between the two. I would like to see my Teams as groups in Outlook and vice versa or combine them.

  18. Teams on Safari

    G'day Microsoft Teams Team,
    Firstly - well done on the new Teams updates with enhanced assignment and OneNote functionality/Integration. Awesome.

    But... as a school with a MacOSX device environment we are still waiting for Teams to work within Safari. Any eta on when this will happen (other than a vague - 'it's coming')???

    Looking forward to working with my staff team on the change management journey getting our classes set up in the Teams environment.

  19. Make Teams App available on Amazon Fire Tablet

    Make the Teams App available on the Fire tablet to support home learning.

    As lots of students are learning at home, many of them will have a Fire Tablet only and will allow them to participate in work created by Teachers on their personal tablet.
