  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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?

  5. Set preferences for captioning on in Teams

    Enable captioning feature to be on when entering or starting a Teams meeting/call. This eliminates having to select the ellipses and turning on captions every time.

  6. Please make all policy/settings to be able to be applied to groups.

    Some of the settings can be applied to groups, but some are only applied to users (at least through the gui). An example is the Team Apps Setup Policy. As new users are provisioned too many things have to manually applied. This would also apply to retention policies. We have multiple retention policies that are dependent on which OU you are in.

  7. 911 ringing

    When our users are dialing 911, they don't get a ringtone. This causes them to get confused and hang-up thinking the call isn't going through. They resort to using their cellphones to call 911 each time this happens. Ringing should occur with every call no matter if it's emergency or non

  8. Allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document repository via teams

    Although there already exists a way to upload documents to teams and have them go to a folder in an associated SharePoint, it will only go to a single default folder. Along with this, there already exists a way to link a SharePoint document repository to a Teams group. But there is not a way to directly upload a document to a specific folder in the SharePoint repository through Teams. (Below are some screenshots taken on the Android mobile app showing the default Teams file upload location, how we access the Teams document repository, and the currently available upload/add-to options…

  9. Keep pinned posts visible in channel

    When a post is pinned in a channel, keep that post visible at the bottom of the channel at all times.
    Pinned posts are used for important announcements and information, and hiding them in information pane of a channel does not allow for using them as an effective announcement. Pinned posts in a channel should be shown to all users immediately when they open the channel.

  10. Co-Organizers for Teams Meetings and Breakout Rooms

    Allow for Co-Organizers for Teams Meetings and Breakout Rooms. This would allow multiple people to manage Breakout Rooms and meetings. Also if the primary organizer is out the co-organizer can still make modifications to the meetings.

  11. Missing Government Tenant Features

    We (GCC, GCC High, DOD) need a central place to go where we can see all the GA features not currently released to us and their status. The roadmap is useful but not for items not on it such as Tags, channel email, pinning channels, whiteboard... that have been in GA for months but are not on the roadmap. It would be very helpful to know (generally) as an administrator why they are not available and if they are being considered or not for future release.

  12. Switching channels from private to public or public to private

    Understanding that 'used' chats (any team/channel that has comments from other members besides the owner) may have privacy issues, it would benefit us (the owners/creators) that while figuring out how our team is to be built, we would be allowed edit rights to move channels from public to private, and private to public (especially when no one has submitted anything in there other than the owner). It's frustrating that one must go in and create a whole new channel with a modified name (because the old channel, regardless if it's been erased or not, is still using that original name),…

  13. Create an archive feature for Teams channels, conversations & files

    It would be great to see features that allow us to archive channels & conversations that no longer used but instead of deleting can archive for documentation purposes.

  15. Allow a user to flag a message in teams chat and have it populate to the "to do" application

    Allow a user to flag a message in teams chat and have it populate to the "to do" application. This is possible for flagged e-mails, and would be useful for chat messages

  16. customize Teams admin roles

    Currently we cannot customize Teams admin roles. For example, if i only want the admin who has the right to change the settings of the auto-attendant, the Teams admin or Teams communication admin will give too many permissions to this admin. This is inconvenient for management purpose. Can we enable this in in the future?

  17. Allow Team Owners to take control of meeting

    Provide Team Owners the ability to take control of a meeting, replacing the current Organizer.

    This provides a back-up for when the organizer is absent and does not require as much re-coding as adding a co-organizer feature {which still would be good to have!}

  18. Allow multiple chat conversations to be selected simultaneously

    I would like to select multiple conversations at the same time in order to hide/archive or delete them. This would help keep an organized and clutter-free Chat section in MS Teams. This can be done by converting user profile photos into checkboxes and/or holding the Shift key down and selecting multiple chats.

  19. Change camera hotkey in Teams

    suggest add a hotkey to quickly/easily switch between cameras. eg change to a usb document camera. Even better multiple hotkeys so that any one of 3 or more usb cameras can be selected. eg person/document/microscope etc.

  20. Allow attendees to pop out video of participants while someone is sharing content

    Allow participants in a meeting where content is being shared to "pop-out" the gallery/participant view to view in a separate window (instead of small images down below at the bottom of the screen).
