  2. Don't skimp on the abilities of each app

    I created an excel sheet in my desktop app, then I upload it to TEAms so everyone can collaborate on it. The only thing is, Teams does not support all the capabailites of excel so my workbook gets messed up. Why?

    that's my question- why? why even make teams if doesn't talk to desktop apps correctly? why even make online apps if they don't offer the same features as the desktop apps? Just why?

    For my processes- it takes up my time to start aproject in the online app only to realize that what I need is only available in…

  3. Enable Automatic switching of Camera to current speaker in Live Events

    When holding a live event, the video options available for the producer are a single pane, or a large pane with a smaller pane next to it. Whilst these are sufficient for a rigidly scheduled event, it does not work so well if attempting to broadcast a more fluid meeting. The producer spends rather a lot of time having to switch manually between the cameras of those who are talking, especially where a debate is taking place and the next speaker may be anyone in the event.

    An option should be made available to automatically stream the camera of the…

  4. GCC Teams Web Connector

    So, we need to be able to allow the creation of the "Web Connector" like we do in the commercial application. That is, if we select a channel and say we wan to make a web connector, we should be able to do so. And then call that web connector with an active card and have it show up in the channel. This is how it works in the commercial deployment and we just want the same thing. If there is AAA that you need to do for GCC/DOD ... fine ... then just let us know what we need…

  7. Remove recordings from teams to diffrent easy accessible place only for recording.

    Also let the user decide the video quality of recordings so that they can access these on poor internet connection. (It won't load on poor internet connection)

  8. Allow muting channel conversations

    This is a feature that exists in the commercial version.

    Allow muting notifications for a conversation. If you've participated in a conversation, and it has a lot of activity, you get a notification for every post. I would like the ability to mute a conversation that I would normally get notifications for, temporarily. This shouldn't affect other conversations.

  9. Get rid of rapists in GIFs

    When you search, "Jello," in GIF's, there's an option featuring Bill Cosby. I get the connection but really? Let's stop giving that convicted serial ****** any platform, please.

  10. Add functionality to move the "Presenting..." toolbar

    When sharing your screen in a Microsoft Teams video conference, the "Presenting..." bar is in the way of accessing items that require hovering over them to display.

    Can you please make it possible to move the “Presenting…” toolbar?

    For example, if you are sharing your screen to show a remote desktop session and the remote desktop bar is not pinned, it will be very difficult to access that bar because the presenting bar will appear before the remote desktop bar and remain in foreground much longer than the remote desktop bar.

  11. Have a set of key words for alerting

    I understand the Search and Filter functions, but am suggesting being able to set key words and get alerts when those words are posted.
    The ability to set key words that alert you if mentioned by anyone within any of the channels to which you subscribe.
    The ability to set key words in specific channels that may be different than and in addition to the main set of key words.

  12. Promote Channel to Team

    I would like the ability to promote an existing Channel so that it becomes a Team (similar to being able to promote a Planner checklist item to a Planner task). Conversely, being able to demote a Channel into a Team would be useful.

    Allow setting on phone to only use WiFi. Had work vc and forgot mobile data on. now have 85% of monthly quota used in 1x day. Why is there no feature banning using mobile data on Android?

  15. Individual track change option in co-authoring documents in Teams

    When co-authoring a document, we need to be able to set the track changes to on by user, instead of it being on for all. I cannot format or work on the document when other have turned on track changes as I don't want my formatting in track changes.

  18. Enable private side conversation while on a call

    As the courts are starting to leverage video conferencing capability there is a need to enable private voice conversations within a subset of call attendees. This should be a capability that more than the call organizer/admin can trigger. Think of it as a defendant talking in private with their representative. This is not currently a capability within Zoom and would offer a compelling differentiator for Teams.

  19. Recovery of deleted teams

    An accidentally deleted team cannot be recovered because the team is not generated between Outlook Office365 groups.

    Does an Office365 Outlookgroup correspond to a team created within Teams?
    Now it seems not.
    thank you.

  20. Add Rol "administrador"

    Starting with Microsoft Teams it happened to me that I added several Owners and one of them deleted the team and I could not restore it.

    An administrator "Role" is required to prevent another owner from deleting the Team.
