  1. Allow users of Teams to test their webcam and microphone before a meeting

    The desktop Teams app opens to a blank page for a new user. No opportunity to check a webcam has connected or a microphone is working with the app. Why not? Even a meeting like the "Skype call testing service" which I must have called at least 100 times in my career (so far).

  2. improve how to append guests to a meeting and revoke a malicious guest from the meeting

    I want to use Teams meeting for a community, which is consists of almost trusted, but unspecified members.
    And so I want to revoke some malicious members if necessary.

    I exec the following steps:


    1. The meeting organizer X makes a new meeting and appends a guest user Y (by mail address).

    2. Y receives the URL of the meeting and go to the lobby.

    3. Y can make a name freely and join the meeting.

    4. X permits Y by checking the above name.

    5. Y interrupted the meeting, so X revokes Y.

    6. Y clicks the same URL again, and Y can join immediately.

  3. Choice to view the video thumbnails of participants above the Shared Content instead of having them fixed to the bottom.

    It would be great if when a user is sharing their screen during a video call, the list of participants and their small video feeds were shown above the shared content rather than below it. Many times people are looking at themselves or other participants when speaking, and it looks to others like their eyes are closed. By moving the user's own image and the images of others to the top of the screen, above the shared content, there's a better likelihood that users will be looking upwards towards the camera rather than down.

  5. Export/Import wiki pages

    Hello,

    It will be really useful to export (and import) a wiki created in the MS Team wiki tab.

    The export could be in HTML, Markdown or plain text format.

  6. Delete chats

    There needs to be an easy (easier?) way to delete a chat or messages with in a chat. Having the whole thread is clunky.

  8. Provide option to edit the Privacy type of channel from Standard to Private or vice versa;

    If we are allowed to edit the type of privacy, if by mistake privacy is wrongly selected we can edit else we have to delete the entire channel to re-create which is rework.

  10. Avoid multiple divice login in same time to meeting

    Hi,

    MS Teams allows using multiple devices with the same account to joining to the same meeting simultaneously by default. This feature called 'Having Companion Device in the Meeting'. Is there any way to block this? So that it allowed only one device of a user with a particular account to join the meeting.

  13. Bring back full screen mode

    The new version of TEAMS pops out a new window but loses full-screen mode. This is a HORRIBLE miss. Bring it back!

  14. Allow non-teams users to join Live Events as presenter

    Currently we have many live events happening, where a large portion of the audience is external to our company. While we can setup the Live Event as a public meeting, we cannot designate one of those external people to be a presenter.

    Currently you seem to require people to sign up as either a company, or a school, to use teams free, so they can be presenters, meanwhile all your competitors allow very easy guest configurations where they simply enter their name in a text field, no signup required, only the email address needs to match.

    I am doing all…

  15. Add Important Notification to Webhook Connectors

    When writing a message in Microsoft Teams, a user can click the exclamation point icon in compose mode to mark the message as important (alternately done through control-shift-i). This flags the message as important in the team channel, as well as give the channel an alert icon of a red exclamation point. Looking through the actionable message card documentation, I cannot find any mention of this functionality. It would be nice to have to option to flag a webhook as an important message.

  16. "Test your equipment before you join..." function for attendees

    When joining a Teams meeting via invite URL, it should be possible for attendees to "Test the Audio/Video capabilities of your device before joining the conference...". That could be a link to a test room, or some test scenarios, or some diagnostic software which checks out if camera, microphone and speaker are working correctly for this meeting. That tool or link might even check out the issues if the attendee cannot install Teams, perhaps due to missing permissions...

    Thus, it would be great if there was some kind of test link or capabilities check. And perhaps with hints on what…

  17. Allow to upload a FOLDER instead file-by-file

    The bad things that I discovered is I cannot upload a folder (whole file) instead to the channel.

    I need to upload file-by-file and create a folder and move it to desire folder which take times.

  18. Cannot find Planner and Forms in the free tier Teams - even for purchase

    I've used Teams in a paid environment, and today set one up for a non-profit, using the free tier at least initially.

    I quite like the Planner and Forms tabs, and am hoping to be able to use them. They don't show up in the Tabs selection (+). Also, they aren't available in the Store.

    These extensions are in my opinion very cool, and it's a pity that evaluators of the free version won't even get to be aware of their existence.

    What to do?

  19. Delete Org on Teams Free Version

    The following site states you should contact Microsoft Support via Phone to delete the Teams Free org:
    https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/delete-your-teams-free-organization-2c28cfcf-3fbf-497c-938f-8815a8f6a6b9

    However, neither the Commercial Support Team, Office Consumer Team, and Office Business Team know how to do this, based on phone conversations with them. It'd be better if you could do this on some portal or at least gave those teams clear instructions on how to achieve this.
