  4. Thumbs down emoji

    Hi. We are using Teams for our leadership team meetings. We often have to take a vote. We found the thumbs up emoji for a YES vote but there doesn't seem to be a thumbs down emoji for a NO vote. It would be great to add that.

  5. Behind scenes chat meeting with anonymous attendee

    For training services about government tech implementation. We wish to have behind scenes chat with anonymous attendees in a meeting in order moderator could support any of them when stays behind, like software use training, without interrumpting presentation by organizer. With raise hand feature available this could be helpful.

  7. Enable MS Forms Tab/Create Poll After Meeting has Started

    Please add the ability to enable the MS Forms tab/option and create a new poll once a meeting has already started, especially when the MS Forms tab was not enabled in advance of the meeting start.

    Scenario
    There are many times when we did not enable the MS Forms tab to a meeting prior to it starting and thus we cannot add/create a poll once the meeting is running. In this scenario, we need the ability to enable the MS Forms tab to an already running meeting and then create a poll to launch, all during the live/running meeting. Also…

  8. Include feature to display a timer in a Teams meeting for facilitators and presenters

    A timer feature available in Teams meetings to display for all meeting participants would be especially helpful for facilitating large meetings with an agenda of assorted topics and presenters to keep the agenda on track. Suggest the timer is fairly inconspicuous so as not to distract or add pressure to the presenters, but visible if you are looking for it.

  10. allow call-ins for live events

    Call in for audio for Live Events.

    People need to be able to ask questions by voice for live events instead of just chat if they are calling in. They also need to be able to raise their hand so they can be called upon to so they can speak.

  11. Make the ‘join meeting’ button stand out more.

    Make button a contrasting colour. It looks like a heading not a call to action so tends to get lost in the meeting invite text.

  12. Intégrer un module de signature numérique dans Microsoft Teams

    Il serait fort appréciable que MS Teams permette la signature électronique des documents et plus particulièrement des listes de présence lors des réunions virtuelle.

  13. Manual control of the always on top Control Bar

    The tool bar is huge and distracting, and the inability of a user to minimize or move it is ridiculous. Waiting for it to disappear in response to mouse movement is a wholly inadequate feature.

  14. enable integration between paralel meetings or live events

    it will be appreciated to have multiple running meetings integrated for one single group of users such is the case for breakout rooms that are organized in a real conference. this could serve the purpose of running a virtual conference with benefits to participant to move from a room to another without having to exit the conference. it's helpful if Teams can have a master meeting (to replicate the plenary session in a conference) that could breakdown to sub-meetings where participants are eligible to join with a key or freely.

  15. Add a Guest role which allows only viewing, listening and being involved in the chat.

    There's a need for an additional role, one which allows participant to view and listen to the presentation but not to speak, to just respond or provide input in the chat.

  17. Call Quality Reporting

    The Teams call quality reports currently only looks at average values (packet loss, latency, jitter) when flagging possible problems with media quality and because of this, meetings that have high amounts of maximum packet loss, latency or jitter are being rated as Good which in turn makes it very difficult to track down possible problems without having to drill down into each user's meeting connection. The Teams call quality reports need to take maximum values into account when rating media quality.

    Also, it would be extremely beneficial to have a new in-between rating (e.g. "Impacted") to help rate those calls…

  18. Allow people that dial in to be placed into breakout rooms.

    Our Agency relies HEAVILY on the breakout room feature in our meetings platforms. We have recently acquired G5 licensing for all Agency personal, partly so that we could use the phone feature in Meetings. Unfortunately the following text shows up under the "Assign participants" pane, "People who dial in on a phone line can't join breakout rooms." Allowing people who dial in on a phone line to be placed in breakout rooms would be a huge boon for our Agency. Please make it happen.

  19. hide participant name

    Ability to hide or mask participant or meeting host names.
    We have sensitive interviews that we need to hide the interviewer's names that are tied to the GAL and Teams contact and are showing during the Teams calls which is causing privacy issues.

  20. Provide option to add text on name (rename) during meeting

    For easy identification of what organization a participant is representing specially for big meetings, having the option to add the organization acronym on name is a big help to meeting organizer.
