  2. Live event presenter unmute option

    As a producer in a live event I can mute a presenter.
    However, I can't unmute them.
    This would help make the live event producing smoother
    as the presenters only have to concentrate on presenting
    and will help with the less technical presenters.

  4. sub-channel meeting scheduling and notifications

    I've set up an Advising Team. This means that I have a general chat and I have one-one channels with students (for privacy). I would like to be able to schedule future meetings in the sub-channels (right now I can only "meet now"). I would also like to receive an email notification whenever a student posts something in their sub-channel since they are used infrequently. It would also be nice if I could schedule a meeting with everyone in the team without having to add everyone's name and/or when I am scheduling a meeting within a team, have those team…

  5. Blocking function on teams

    I think that you should be able to block people on teams. I understand that it is a forum that’s only used in work/school contexts, but I still think that it’s necessary to block some people. I don’t want to see every message some people writes in public school chats, it affects my school performance. Maybe you should not be able to block school staff, but at least other students.

  6. Voice filter

    Develop a voice filter so that we only hear the voice from other participants and not all other kind of noises.

  9. Share a second camera to show worksheets full screen as a document camera

    Teachers use document cameras to teach. Having this option will improve teaching as students can see what you are writing on a worksheet.

  10. Share computer audio so that videos and audio clips can be shared with a class or group

    Teams need to allows users to share computer audio, to allow teachers to play recordings or audio clips to students, especially for younger students

  11. Abilitly to unmute participants.

    I am using Teams with Kindergarten students. Sometimes I have to mute the class as there are distracting behaviors/noise happening. However, some of my students do not know how to unmute themselves. It would be great to have the capability to unmute attendees from the organizer's side.

  12. Create our own backgrounds

    It would be good for students to be able to create their own backgrounds - Still images or videos that they could perform in front of.

  14. Allow most recent activity to appear at the top of the Team feed.

    Having the oldest post be at the top of the Team feed is counter intuitive and annoying. Who needs to be reminded of the very first post every time they open the Team page? I want to see the most recent activity. PLEASE make this happen. I have not seen a reasonable justification for why it's not an option (or the default for that matter).

  16. Option to stop Microsoft Teams from controlling your microphone volume.

    Whenever you get into a call, Teams takes control of your microphone volume dynamically which is super annoying to a point where the quality of the call becomes unbearable. There should be an option to disable teams for doing that. Even with Exclusive Mode turned off in windows for the microphone, it still does it. Most people just want their microphone static.

  17. Allow teachers to turn the microphone on and off as needed during a video conference

    As a preschool teacher using Teams for video conferences, I wish to have control over the microphone access. It will be easy if I could turn on the microphone when I need the student to give an answer.

  19. I would like for there to be a document camera option the same way you can screen share..

    Currently you can only use a document camera instead of your video image which makes it difficult for people to see when the screen is split among so many people. It would be nice to be able to show something from a document camera or external camera the same way you can share your screen. The other alternative would be if the presenter and other owners have the capability of making their image the whole screen at certain times.

  20. Better Document viewing

    The current method of viewing documents is actually not that good, as firstly, PEOPLE DON'T PUT THE ZOOM INTO A DROPDOWN that is HORRIBLE design practice. EVEN I DON'T DO THAT! Please also note that you guys might want your desktop app to be more dynamic. The reason why people download desktop apps is so that they can reduce the lag of receiving new files from the server every time they click a button. You might want to at least store a temporary cache somewhere in the C:// that you can put some old messages there, and when you click…
