  2. Increase the number of videos during Team meetings from 4 to around 25.

    Currently only 4 cameras are shown during a Teams meeting. We need to have up to 25 people showing instead of them rotating as they speak.
    Also we need to be able to mark at least 4 people as always showing if the number of attendees goes over the max limit, such as the suggested 25 viewers.

  3. Add a hand-raising function for Teams meetings

    Add a hand-raising function to Teams meetings so a moderator or meeting leader can designate who is next to speak. In large meetings, having multiple people trying to speak over each other is disruptive. Chat is fine for short questions and comments, but not the best way to allow people to discuss more involved topics.

  4. View or export a list of users who attended a meeting

    Currently, there is no method of viewing a list of meeting attendees after a meeting has ended.

    Meeting organizers should be able to view or export a list of attendees, including enter and exit times, duration, etc.

    You are working on testing this for the public, it is also needed on the government accounts.

  5. allow multiple instances of Teams to be open

    I'd like to be able to open multiple instances of Teams so that I can have each instance open on a different Team and perhaps another instance open to the Chat. Not being able to do this makes it hard to keep track of where I am when I'm switching tasks.

  6. pin multiple participants

    Teams iPad/iOS/GCC feature: Need the ability to pin multiple participants on the screen vs. just 1 currently. Also be able to show more than the 3+1 participants on the iPad. Ideally at least up to 9 participants.

  7. Enable PowerApps, PowerAutomate, and Forms Apps in Teams for GCC/Gov Customers

    Please enable the 1st party apps for Microsoft PowerApps, PowerAutomate (Flow), and Forms for GCC/Gov customers. GCC versions of these services exist but the Teams integrated apps are missing for GCC.

  8. Add functionality to move the "Presenting..." toolbar

    When sharing your screen in a Microsoft Teams video conference, the "Presenting..." bar is in the way of accessing items that require hovering over them to display.

    Can you please make it possible to move the “Presenting…” toolbar?

    For example, if you are sharing your screen to show a remote desktop session and the remote desktop bar is not pinned, it will be very difficult to access that bar because the presenting bar will appear before the remote desktop bar and remain in foreground much longer than the remote desktop bar.

  10. Hide history of members leaving or joining the team

    Don`t show information about who joined or left the team. We are 19 000 users in our organization, big teams generate long lists of this information where we would rather want to see important information. Some teams have now vacated the General channel because of this problem.
    Maybe this technical history can be hidden og located in antother place?

  11. Need reply to message option in chat

    Especially within a chat group, there needs to be a way to comment on or reply to a particular message within the chat history. This is useful when there are a number of simultaneous conversation threads (similar to how messaging is implemented in a channel), and is a common feature on other communication platforms.

  12. Enable up to 500 attendees in Teams meetings

    Skype rolled out testing on meeting attendees last year to increase from 250 to 500 attendees. The same needs to occur in Teams meetings. The difference between 250 attendees for Teams meetings and 10,000 Live Event attendees is too great.

  13. Delete chat conversation

    I don't want to keep meeting conversation times and history in chats tab. Please create Delete option. This shouldn't be saved at all. keeping conversation history includes highly confidential as well. I see no way it is secured one.

  14. Freeze Chats in Meetings

    Please give meeting organizers the option to freeze meeting chats after the meeting is concluded. Owners can post a redirect back to an actual channel. Allowing meeting chats to linger on causes confusion and cannibalizes attention on channels.

  15. notification

    So you know how you can turn on the notification "all activity" for a channel in a team. It would be nice to be able to turn on and off "all activity notification" for one whole team that is separate from other team. Not notifications for the whole app.

    Example : Click on the 3 dots beside the team name ( drop down menu - manage team, add channel, add member etc..) not general and have an option that states "turn on all notification" in that drop down menu that way you don't have to it individually for each channel.

  17. We need there to be some sort of portal for live meetings so attendees can register for the events like other webinar software has.

    Once you create a live meeting there is no way to know who plans to attend the event live. There is only the attendee engagement report once the meeting is over. I know that at my agency at the least, there is a requirement that they need to know who is coming to the event and what organization they work for. Without this feature we will never be able to utilize Teams for live events. We love every other aspect of Teams live events compared to other webinar software out there but those other software has registration portals. This is…

  18. pop out chats

    With multiple chats going on at any given time and the inconvenience of jumping within Teams to various ongoing chats or other work, would really appreciate the ability to pop out chat sessions.

  20. Create meeting in meeting

    To be able to divide the group into smaller meeting rooms for workshop purpose. Zoom can do this and it is a fantastic feature.
