  2. I would like to have the function as a host to mirror my ipad to the Team Meeting like the function Zoom provides

    I would to mirror my ipad to the Team Meeting because I don't have a touch screen computer and how could I write on the computer without a writing pad... I use ipad in Zoom and it works perfectly but it seems that I have to buy like "reflector" to get it to work

  5. I should able see the any participant video in full screen. Full screen video of any one participant option should be made available.

    If I want to see a incoming video in full screen of any member then the option ahould be made available for the user. It is actially required for online education. Display of 9 video in a single screen resulted in a very small display of teacher video and students do not able to see the contents properly. Therefore an option should be there to turn any participants video to full screen, so that video of teacher end are properly visible to students.

  6. The ability to delete chat/conversation history

    We should be able to delete all history at one time or individually. The only two options currently available are to leave a chat and to hide...and even with the hiding it has to be done one at a time!!! so painful!

  7. Explore Discord for improvements.

    A Discord feature right click on a participant and increase/decrease participant's voice volume. this helps for loud talkers or soft talkers.

  8. need to add the ability to switch between multiple teams... Bring what you did to the moble to desktop!!

    have multiple children who all use the same platform and device for their education. As a parent the ability to constantly be informed with both classes is vitally important... the mobile app feature multiple accounts solved some of the problems but need the same level of flexibility in the online platform to facilitate virtual education.

  9. I would like to be able to cancel future meetings in a series without deleting previous meetings.

    Cancel future repeats of meeting after term is over without deleting previous meetings. This would let students find the previous meetings' chat and links.

  10. Tasks app

    I've added items to To Do Tasks by dragging emails in Outlook online (works well, thanks). I can read the emails in the tasks while I'm in Outlook. When I'm in the new Teams task app, I see these items in my Tasks and it tells me there is an attachment (the email message), but I can not view the email text while I'm in Teams. I would like to see the email text without leaving Teams and having to go back to Outlook.

  13. The organizer should have control over her/ his class: mute participants facility, chat controls, recording controls, screen controls.

    The organizer should have control over her/ his class: mute participants facility, chat controls, recording controls, screen controls and it should be more user friendly.

  15. Additional chat features

    I’m considering moving my friends to discord as teams chat seems like a worsened version of it. However, that would be tedious and I want to keep using teams for convenience. Here are some features to add/re-add:
    * Bring back gifs.
    * Bring back YouTube video attachments.
    * Better iOS mobile support.
    * Chat owners that can temporarily or permanently kick, mute or restrict permissions of users.
    * Interactive Chat bots with easy programming.
    * View hidden chats and add chat categories.

    if teacher could speak to just 1-2 student during meeting. For instance if a SPED teacher could "push in" to another teachers meeting and assist 1-2 students during the lesson.

  17. In a Teams call, allow the hovering bar to be moved or minimized. It blocks things like captions.

  18. It's annoying you have to double click the video to get rid of the controls (which I hardly ever use btw). Not even one click gets rid of it

  20. Allow for color differentiation in chats by changing Chat bubble Colors of the user. and have Chat tab correspond to that color s well

    Would be cool if you could make chat bubbles a selection of colors so you can easier differentiate which chat youre in. It's very easy to forget or not notice you havent changed chats and are in the wrong one, but having a more visible cue can help
