  1. Allow more participants to show up when using the camera feature.

    Max of 4 people show up when using camera in Teams - My whole "Team" doesn't display at one time unless someone speaks. Zoom, WebEx, and other platforms provide this - I wish Team would provide the same experience.

  2. Allow user to choose time limits for availability.

    Team shows me away after 10-15minutes, but I'm still working at my computer. I would like to control the idle times like Skype.

  4. Recovering multiple chats for event response into a timeline of events

    Recently we had an Event Respose to a server issue. When we run into issues we start a teams chat with an Event Response group. Ideally we all talk in there so we can easily recover our history to come up with Post Event Documentation.

    However, in an emergency situation we dont always chat in the one nice box, usually i am talking to 3-4 coworkers at the same time to resolve server issues.

    What i would like is a way to extract multiple conversations, from a certain time period and it could consolidate all my chats, and arrange them…

  5. When users visit the Notebook tab in a Team and access different sections or pages, then move to a different tab or channel, they should be

    If I access the Class/Staff Notebook tab and go to a specific section or page, if I leave that tab and then return to it, I would like the last page/section visited to display (not the Welcome to Class Notebook landing page).

  6. Export grades from Microsoft Teams to Excel with SIS ID

    Please add the ability to select fields such as SIS ID when we export assignment grades from teams. We need to be able to export our grade file with an SIS ID in order to import it directly into our SIS.

  7. Only certain assignments with a key word appears for parents and guardians on the digest.

    As a teacher, I use Teams for both classwork and homework assignments but I do not necessarily want parents seeing what I have set for classwork assignments. Is there a way which only the assignments with the key word Homework (or Prep as we call it) will show to parents in the digest?

  8. Enable users to change default for notices

    Currently, the default for teams and channels is to not notify members when there is a communication. You have to go in and change it so it notifies you for each channel, which is hard if you've never been notified in the first place. Can the default be to notify anytime there is a communication and then users can choose to not be notified? I understand that some people may get annoyed with the constant messages but it is worse to never be notified — you may miss a very important conversation.

  9. include English (UK) keyboard language

    currently, you cannot set your default language to English (UK), this means that while writing up notes etc. red underlines appear non-stop telling me I am spelling things wrong because UK uses an 's' while the US use a 'z'

  11. Manage Team Analytics improved date ranges

    Under manage team you are able to see an analytics tab. It would be beneficial for this to have a significantly increased date range to choose from, and also the ability to select between date ranges. This is a really helpful feature.

  12. Open Teams in multiple windows

    In OneNote you can open the app in a new window by pressing Ctrl+m. I need that in Teams. For example if I am viewing a planner and then want to view a document, then I have to navigate back to the planner again.
    Very important! I think this is the main reason Teams has not yet become my work-environment of choice.

  13. Sort assignments by category

    Students and Teachers should be able to filter assignments by category in the assignments section, not just in each individual team.

  14. Poor translations need to be improved

    The language in translated versions of Teams should be proofread by qualified humans. The button "schedule" that must be clicked to post tasks in the future has been autotranslated to "tidsplan" in Norwegian, which is a correct translation of the noun "schedule", but it makes no sense in a context which requires a verb. A human would spot this.

  16. Word Document Bookmarks and Hyperlinks Not Functioning in Teams - Only in Desktop App

    I created document bookmarks and hyperlinks within a long document, so our team can efficiently identify needed content; however, that feature is not accessible in the Teams or Browser view. That feature is only available in the Desktop App.

  17. More than One Person Open a Doc Using Desktop App

    When more than one person attempts to open a document using the desktop app, the document closes. There should be a way for more than one person to open the same document using the desktop app, as many features in the Desktop App are not available in View in Teams or View in Browser. This makes document collaboration challenging.

  18. Redesign the UI

    I find the layout completely incomprehensible. It's just an assortment of material design components barfed all over the canvas. There's so much UI hidden behind and under stuff, frames without borders so you don't know where the menu ends, the content begins or where the scroll bar is at, which itself is TINY and doesn't scroll all the way to the bottom of what appears to be the content window. It just hurts to use it.

  19. Multiple channels selection - to set same settings all in one go

    It would be very helpful if we could select multiple channels in Microsoft Teams by holding SHIFT or CONTROL and clicking.
    This would help when setting the same channel notification settings all in one go for the selected channels, rather than having to do it individually for every channel one by one.

  20. The ability to assign one assignment to multiple Teams

    It would be great to be able to create an assignment in Teams and choose which Teams to post it to at the same time as opposed to having to go to each Teams and copy the assignment. Similar to the new update where we can post an announcement to multiple teams at once. Thanks for all you do. Teams is great!
