  1. 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.

  2. Conversation delete.

    There should be an option of deleting an entire conversation. The way it was for Skype.

  3. "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…

  5. About the default function of [Blur Background]

    Implement a function that turns on the [blur background] function by default.

  6. Chat history is inaccessible due to terrible scrolling/loading behavior!

    Loading chat history takes forever or often results in an empty page. I can't navigate through the history and look around because every scroll move takes me somewhere else or to nowhere.

    There seems to be no chat history cache at all.

  7. Background Options

    Allow the Team moderator change the background. The white on grey is too boring.

  8. Away Status timer

    Skype for Business has an option that allows you to change the amount of time that elapses before your status changes to “Away”. This is a great feature.

  9. fullscreen

    Fullscreen is missing when trying the "new meeting experience". There is also no keyboard shortcut to activate it.

  10. 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!

  12. Power Point share option in Microsoft Teams Live Events

    In a regular Teams Meeting, you can share Desktop, open Windows, or PowerPoint presentations, which you can browse from your OneDrive, your computer, or from Teams. It allows you to share the entire PowerPoint "full screen", but inside your Teams window so you can still see the chat and participants. This feature is not in Teams Live events, but would be a great help. Currently, we require whoever is presenting to use two screens so they can have their content on one screen and the Teams Live event on the other. This would eliminate that need, and also allow one…

  17. move/dock toolbar

    we sue teams for VFX work. remote meetings, and especially for screensharing video players. the toolbar (with meeting timer, mute, hang up, etc) just sits there in the worst place. and i see all that lovely grey in the periphery near the help search field..... the option to move -or better yet dock- the toolbar would make this app **** near perfect for me. love using teams, but this one little hangup is kind of annoying. thanks for reading!

  18. Connect to existing OneDrive

    Within the free MS Teams under the file menu, there is integrated a OneDrive. However this is a different OneDrive than the one I already have for the same user.

    Please could you make it possible to add the personal OneDrive i already have in my home edition of Office 365.
