  1. Give control to All during Shared Presentation

    During my pdf or web shared link presentation...I want to enable All my students to be able to share control during presentation. Now we have to enable only one person at a time.

    If it’s possible to have a feature to Enable All, so simultaneously students can work collaboratively to solve an online exercise.

  2. Permission based meeting recordings for Legal/Lawyers and their staff

    I work in the Legal/Enforcement Division of a state government. I am stunned that Teams does not have permission based recording that is controlled by the meeting creator.
    During a Teams meeting I had a laptop fail during a confidential meeting with attorneys, and I had to rejoin that meeting using the Teams App on my phone and when it launched somehow it began recording the meeting. I cannot emphasize enough the issues this creates. Immediate issues: A) I did not know I had started recording the meeting B) I had no idea how to stop the recording, and C)…

  3. 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.

  5. The ability to move individual participants in/out of lobby/breakout rooms

    In hearings, we need the ability to move people in and out of lobby (and breakout rooms) individually without the option of them returning to the meeting without approval.

  6. Edit display name functionality

    For virtual hearings, or other online meetings with external users there is a need to maintain privacy and at times a need for the meeting organizer to edit participants display name during a meeting.

  9. 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. separate gallery from presentation

    Add the ability to pop out the gallery (like you can in Skype) so you can have people in one window (or screen) and the presentation in another.

  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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  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.

  16. 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.

  17. Ability to disable recording in breakout rooms

    Although attendees and external users should not have the ability to start a recording it is important to the integrity of the Hearing that no one be allowed to in the breakout room. An option for the Host to enable recording (for use cases other than Hearings) would be helpful

  18. 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…

  20. Allow Guests to Participate in the chat of a Meeting owned by a MS Teams Channel

    We have Teams set up for certain work groups and advisory councils that can be used between meetings. We would like the Meeting invite itself to be owned by the 'group' rather than one individual user.

    However, their are many guest attendees/presenter at the monthly meetings and those guests need to be able to participate in the chat. Those guests are either added last minute or not appropriate to add to the teams space itself, so they cannot see the chat for the meeting if it is owned by a teams channel.

    To ensure that long-term planning can occur, while…
