  1. It should not be lacking to much and it should use less Mobile data

    It should not be lacking too much and it should use less mobile data. This app needs too much mobile data which is really awful.

  2. CVR

    When using multiple cvr accounts in the Android app, one account or the other will show that I am "no longer a participant". Complete sign out and re-sign in is required to temporarily rectify.

  3. GCC?

    Enable Power Automate to include the checklist when creating a planner task. I know there is a fairly involved work around in place but those of us in the government sector don't often have access to admin or other higher level functions. Seems silly to be able to automate creation of a task for a specific planner and not have the ability to include the common checklist associated with that same planner. Seems there are a ton of people on the internet asking how to do this and they are taking matters into their own hands making custom connectors. Seems…

  4. Changing video background

    It would be great to be able to test and set your background without being in a meeting. It’s annoying that you can’t pre test and set it up

  7. GCC

    For customers with a Teams calling plan, when highlighting a phone number in Outlook, Word, Edge, etc., a right-click context menu should include "Call," which would place a Teams voice call.

  9. Privacy

    Since this an app for government use on a personal device, privacy should be a number one priority. Full control of privacy should be on the user. I should be able to turn off the “Last time seen” that other users can see. Any other options that allow others to see any sort of status should be available to turn off.

  10. Delete the entire app

    Ive never seen a more disorganized and non functioning app from a corporation that is abundant in these issues and more, take a page from the microsoft playbook and just rip off the exact same design from Zoom or even Discord, and revamp this entire mess.

  11. Include Apple/iOS devices in the Mobile Office 365 pilot.

    Currently, only Android devices are in the Mobile Office 365 pilot. The ability to utilize Teams on government issued mobile devices to include all government mobile phones and pads and those devices should be included in the Mobile Office 365 Pilot to address any issues.

  15. Two different logins

    Please have the ability to log into multiple accounts at the same time. Currently have to logout of one account then log into the other account. Would really appreciate this to enable tracking of multiple teams with multiple accounts.

  16. Disable the automatic start up when you sign on and redesign the UI

    Disable the automatic start up. It takes too long. Redesign the UI. It’s clunky looking and not intuitive

  19. Contacts in Phone System

    Since a couple of years we are using MS Phone system, which works really well.
    Now – because we are being forced - we are/were about to make the transition from SfB to MS Teams.
    For testing we bought an Yealink T55A, nice phone but it does not show the contacts from an Teams account.
    Turns out MS haven’t implemented the "Contact" features on the application yet.
    Forwarding incoming calls is hard because of this.
    We want to forward calls to an contact (telephone number), not necessarily to an Teams account!
    Phonesystem is more or less useless for us in…

  20. It should work

    Zoom and Skype are better, more stable platforms. I haven't had a Teams meeting yet that didn't drop a connection.
