  1. Enable participant to remove their own video from their screen while still being visible to others.

    If you could toggle off the video screen showing while still keeping the video feed for others it would mean one more team member was visible to you. Many people find their own video disconcerting and distracting. If they could toggle it on and off it would actually enable more natural behaviour. An icon would be required to let them know they were still steaming with it toggled off.

  2. Improve Breakout Room Funtionality

    I work for a state agency and we utilize Teams to do training. When training, we have multiple trainers that train most sessions. It would be highly beneficial if any meeting member listed as a presenter could both create/send attendees into breakout rooms as well as having the capability of moving in and out of breakout rooms freely. The way it is currently set up, only the the Organizer has these abilities which only allows one trainer to monitor breakout rooms and assist participants.

    Another potential workaround for this is having the organizer designate a proxy that can utilize that…

  4. Move the tool bar

    Need the ability to move the Teams meeting tool bar to a different location. When a person is presenting, the tool bar hides a portion of the slides being shown.

  5. Please add functionality to Team application

    I work in state government and we use Teams. I have also used a different meeting application in my non-profit role. There are some features I really miss when I'm in Teams. Please add: whiteboard functionality and breakout room capability. You recently added the ability to see 9 videos at once, but you can't scroll through screens to show more individuals who have video on. I would love the ability to see all video participants.

  7. Multiple shared screens

    Medical teams are running clinical meetings. We want to be able to share multiple screens at once. Eg radiology, clinical portal. Might driven by two different people.
    When i am viewing a meeting i want spread views over multiple displays so radiology is large.

  8. Send To Lobby

    Send To Lobby

    Hi,
    I wonder if it's possible make an option to send someone to the lobby again.
    I'm using Teams to take some court hearing, and one can't hear what other is saying. Every time I need to remove the person, and ask to rejoin and wait again in the Lobby, but sometimes people doesn't understand and left the meeting... It's quite anoying.

    Another option would be to put someone in hold.

    Could you do this, please??

    Thanks

  9. Paste a list of attendees emails into Teams Meeting invite.

    Have the ability to copy and paste a list of emails into the required attendees when inviting people to a Teams meeting. Major pain having to add one by one, especially when there are a large number.

  10. Spotlight - ability to spotlight multiple particpants

    We need a way to allow Teams meeting organizer to spotlight multiple users. During virtual proceedings, there is a need to keep the judge's video and whomever is speaking at that time on the screen. There is also a need to be able to hard mute all attendants and only allow them to speak when it is appropriate.

  11. Allow presenter to be in presenter mode and also view the list of participants

    When I'm presenting and sharing my screen, I can't also see the participant list to know who's on, unmuted, etc. I would like to have the participant list open while presenting. Right now, I need to cut away from what I'm presenting to see the list... which interrupts the flow of my presentation.

  12. Pop-out Chat and/or Participants window options within Meetings

    As a Teams Meeting user, I would like the ability to enhance my options for viewing the Chat (or meeting conversation) and/or the Participants List with a "pop-out" feature.

    The ability to pop-out these areas (similar to the existing fly-out or pop-out option for a Teams personal chat) would allow users to:

    • Enable an option to utilize the Meeting screen real estate more efficiently when viewing and/or sharing content and video.
    • Permit users to resize the amount of space the pop-out chat or participant list takes up on their individual monitor(s) or screen(s) with ease.
    • Allow users…

  13. Enable share system audio for Team Live Event on GCC, so that we can share a video with audio.

    The commercial cloud has this enabled already. You're able to share a video as content during a live event and include the system audio. However, GCC doesn't have this feature. Please enable this for GCC!!

  14. Live Captions for GCCH

    Hi,

    We have some Team Members that are hard of hearing and use hearing aids. With our increased need to use Microsoft Teams for meetings, it would be very helpful to have Live Caption available for these Team Members.

    I see the option to disable or disable with user override in the Admin Panel, however this option is not available in the Teams client.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-live-captions-in-a-teams-meeting-4be2d304-f675-4b57-8347-cbd000a21260

    Thanks,
    Brandon

  16. MTR Teams - support second MTR camera (front & rear) for presenter / training spaces

    On the Skype for Business MTR (SRS v2) there is the ability to connect 2 video cameras to the room system and users can toggle between the cameras during a call if required. (front and rear camera)
    This is a crucial capability for a number of business use cases such as presenting to a remote audience or training sessions to local and virtual participants.
    Please enable this feature on the Teams MTR and allow the selection of which should be default and allow renaming of the cameras (for a usable and differing name via settings features).
    We have gov clients…

  17. Meeting Options - add ability to disable chat for specific meetings

    With the release of hard mute in meeting options, there are many public meetings we are using Live Events for that could truly be handled with a Teams meeting with hard mute. During public meetings, the public can view/listen to the meeting, but cannot speak or have unsolicited comments be seen by all. Having the ability to mute attendees solves part of the problem, but now we need the ability to disable chat for specific meetings so we can use this solution since it solves many complications we have with live events and external presenters.

  18. GCC: Configure Meeting options when scheduling meeting

    Currently, you have to schedule a meeting and send out the invitations before you can configure the meeting options for Teams functions like "who can present". Beyond extra time required for meeting organizers to go back into meeting they just scheduled to configure it, this design prevents meetings created on a shared calendar from being edited at all, effectively blocking anyone from presenting.

    Please enable the meeting options to be configured when you are adding attendees.

  20. Let Schedule Meeting invite entire team vs individual users

    When scheduling meetings, add the ability to invite an entire team versus individual users. As of right now, you can only select what channel to meet in.

    This does not allow for individual users to accept/decline/tentative the scheduled meeting and the scheduled meeting does not show up in individual user calendars.
