  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  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. 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…

  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. Would like the ability to turn off entering and exiting sounds during a meeting.

    Entering and exiting notification sounds are extremely distracting during a meeting - especially when the meeting is configured to allow everyone to pass thru the lobby. We need the ability for presenters and organizers to mute all entering and exiting notification sounds when the meeting has begun and the ability for the organizer to set a meeting to not have entering and exiting audible notification sounds.

  16. Ability to archive and file Chat conversations

    I would like to be able to archive chat into a place like Conversations in Outlook like Skype does.

    In the case of Channel Chats, it would be good to be able to attach them to Meeting Notes or archive the chat conversations into a document library.

    We deal with NEPA and contracting and would appreciate that capability.

  17. 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.

  18. Meetings - screen sharing - switching screens/apps

    When sharing a screen and changing from sharing an app to a screen, or an app to an app, or a screen to an app, you shouldn't have to end the sharing session to change so that the transition is less jarring.

  19. pin a comment in a chat or channel

    Allow owners to pin a comment in a chat or channel so you can either direct people to another chat or channel. or lock a message. The pin locks the message at a point that is visible to all and doesn't move from the pin space when people scroll through the chat. Example: pin a notice that they are in an old chat and a new chat is on another <channel> or <chat> and this channel will not be monitored on a regular basis. And after a time the chat will be unavailable.

  20. Add Azure DevOps apps in Teams for GCC

    Is there any ETA when Azure DevOps apps like 'Azure Boards',, 'Azure Pipelines' etc will be available for Teams for GCC. Currently there is nothing in M365 Roadmap regarding that: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=GCC
