  3. Allow GUI export of Team membership, including guests, in GCC

    Currently, there is no way to export the list of a Team's Owners, Members and Guests. This is very important for large Teams where membership must be audited regularly.

  4. New customizable indicator like the the small circle that identifies your current status

    With distributed working becoming the norm and the workforce using different modes and tools to communicate, it would be great for coworkers to know how individuals can communicate. This could be done by adding another indicator like the exiting status indicator (but maybe a square). The organization would develop the 'legend' for the different colours. E.g., I am someone in the OPS that is ready and able to have a fully enabled Teams meeting = purple, I use Teams, but I'm new at it = light purple, I am currently only landline telephone enabled = blue, etc. etc. Potentially this…

  5. Enable Better Eye Contact, Move Video Ribbon to Top During Screen Sharing

    When someone is screen sharing, videos of participants are move to a ribbon at the bottom of the screen. Most (though not all) webcams are positioned at the top of the screen.

    Moving the ribbon to top of the screen would allow for the appearance of better eye contact. At least when people are not looking at the shared content.

  7. Include Organizer, Presenter, and Producers in the attendee list

    Please include organizer, presenter, and producers in the attendees list. This will not only improve the reports to be complete and accurate, but also simplifies the process for users. The current attendee list is short sighted and does not meet business needs. Please include all who attended the meeting.

  8. Sign in

    Multiple sign in options. I do not have access to my cell phone at work and I switch desks frequently. signing in is difficult due to the two factors authentication. I cannot sign in because I am never by the phone.

  9. Cvr.mil

    It would be great to have another choice for verification other than cell phone for those of us that work in vaulted areas in buildings with thick walls. By the time I pull my CAC card, exit the vault, get my phone from locked storage, walk around 100 meters to where I can start to get reception, By the time I can get back to the desk with a code, 95% of the time it has timed out. It would be great to have an email as a back up to the cellphone text.

  12. DOD

    Teams mobile app needs to allow you to seamlessly switch between chat view and most recently viewed Team conversation as in the desktop app.

    It's an unnecessary annoyance to have to select the team conversation you want again every time you switch from Chat back to Teams.

    Applies to Android Teams app.

    Chat view needs a way to view and select your contacts.

  14. Multiple tabs open at once

    Currently switching between multiple chats, calendar, teams & teams files, but can only view 1 at a time & have to find other files each time. Would be ideal to have many tabs open at once to easy compare files, go back to frequently used pages, etc.

  15. Grid View in Live Events

    This has been suggested in other channels but wanted to make sure to suggest it here for Government. There needs to be a Large Grid View option for Live Events my users are nixing using Teams Live Event because of this shortfall. The only options are content/video or a combo of Content and small video. Adding a third option for Large Grid View would allow us to pin multiple presenter video to the grid. We could have a debate style conference or a team debate Style.

  16. Layout on Desktop App


    1. The layout of the desktop app is terrible. There is tons of unused empty space. On top of that, things are needlessly busy and contain too much oddly formatted information. This may be in part due to the naming scheme the gov't uses, but an option should exist to create and view nicknames.

    Because of this, there really isn't an option to minimize teams to a small area on your monitor. You need it maximized to be usable, but it clearly doesn't actually require that much space to be functional.

    There should also be a way to minimize it to…
