  2. CVR

    Why can't I have the "Show Conversation" window and the "Show Participants" window open at the same time? Right now if I open one the other closes.

    I would lose nothing on my screen as my colleague's screen share only utilizes half of my 49" ultra wide monitor.

  3. Add offline local Instant Messaging and Presence

    Add offline Instant Messaging and Presence via on-prem extension for locations that rely on Teams for collaboration but may have high risk for WAN disconnect, natural disaster, etc. - NOT having this ability could actually impair a team reliant on Teams from resolving issues effectively should BC/DR needs be triggered with WAN disconnect from MS cloud. I am aware of an SBC like local configuration to maintain dialtone, but this is inadequate in these scenarios.

  4. Filter events in Channels by date of actual event/meeting time

    Need feature added so events in Teams/ Channels is by date of actual event.
    If meeting time link is added on Saturday to Teams Channel but actual meeting is not until Monday. Now have to search back through until you can find event that was added Saturday. If participants don't add to calendar its a mess to find.

  7. DOD

    Make Contacts a dedicated feature in MS Teams that look and act more like Skype for Business. I don't know why you threw away all that functionality for this embarrassment of a contact list buried in Teams Chat with no useful features.

  8. Wenn Sie Teams im deutsprachigen Raum anbieten, dann machen Sie Ihren Rückmeldebogen auf Deutsch.

    Lassen Sie die gleichzeitige Ansicht von Chat und Präsentation bzw. Teilnehmenden zu. Lassen Sie verschiedene Handzeichen zu. Lassen sie Chat zwischen einzelnen Teilnehmenden zu. Teams ist viel zu wenig interaktiv! Die schlechteste aller digitalen Sitzungs-Apps!

  9. Allow additional 2-way authenticators

    I work in a building that doesn’t allow cell phones & unauthorized electronic devices. We also alternate teleworking in the schedule.

    There is no way I can use my work phone as an authenticator & still be able to use text authentication at home. Give us the option to choose. Right now I’m forced to reset two-way authentication every time I switch between work/home & it’s a real pain.

  10. Allow channels to be formatted as chats rather than conversations.

    allow team channels to be configured as "linear" or "conversation" mode, where "linear" mode is similar to a chat type experience where messages are sequential rather than being "form posts+reply" style.

  11. Prevent Team Owner from renaming Team

    Our Teams are currently created by the Teams admins.
    Their names are carefully chosen.
    The Team Owner should NOT be able to change the Team from the name the Teams Admin has set, especially in Government tenants.

    In the mean time, the Teams admin in government tenants should have an alert/report that shows when Teams have been renamed.

  12. New posts in teams mobile

    In teams, Chat on mobile shows the number of new or unread posts, but it doesn't tell me which ones they are. I have 3 new items, but can't figure out where they are. I have about 12 that are bold, some of those are old meetings , not sure why they are still bold. I can't filter to just show the 3 new ones either. How do I find the new ones?

  13. Resigning in every 18 hours

    Resigning in the morning delays response time and communication effectiveness if I need to ensure everyone gets a message early in the morning teams is not the app I use

  14. Wiki Search

    Information within the Wiki feature of Teams does not appear to be searchable.

    Wiki is a great tool and I love it, however, we have stopped using it because it is so difficult to find things when you get a lot of content.

    Please include Wiki pages in Teams search.

  15. Make the caption show more than 2 lines at a time

    Make the caption show more than 2 lines at a time so if the user looks away for a few seconds he is not lost.
