  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. Pin an App for Easy Access - GCC

    Being in the GCC for several years now, I understand that there are delays for features and apps coming to the Government Community Cloud. One feature that has been available for more than 6 Months on the Commercial Side is the ability to for users to Pin Apps (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/pin-an-app-for-easy-access-3045fd44-6604-4ba7-8ecc-1c0d525e89ec). It would nice to be able to have that feature in the GCC. I have the option turned on within the Teams Admin options, yet am still unable to pin any Apps (besides the ones I want to do Org-Wide).

  6. 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. Allow users to configure their Team to Land on the "Files" tab instead of "Posts."

    When you select a Team, it takes you to the “Posts” page. This is usually an empty page and then a user needs to select "Files" to get to where they really want to go. I would like the ability to configure preferences to land instead on "Files"?

  9. 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…

  10. Cvr

    Provide (do not require) CAC access, without the dual authentication requirements. A significantly large portion of the user base, work in secure environments, without LAN line or Cell phone access. Some of us are grown up and can use a CAC on personal computers. Plus scrap the 18 hour session time out. It is just a head ache that actually reduces security because people are using the alternative number sign in, and some rando is hitting the pound sign, proving nothing.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    Applies to Android Teams app.

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

  17. Automatic sign in on phones

    It is very annoying having to always re-sign into my account every time I open the app on my phone. Make it so I can just click on the app and open it, instead of having to type my password, then call to verify and press the # sign. This is very inefficient and inconvenient.

  18. 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.

  19. Shrink/condense chat & teams window size

    The teams window takes up a lot of screen real-estate and I'm finding myself frequently needing to close it because its in the way of other work. For example, the chat window (when popped out) at its smallest size is still twice the size of a skype chat. Can you provide an option for a more condensed view. When within the Teams app, you lose the contact list if you try to shrink the window which isn't helpful when multiple chats are occuring.

  20. CVR

    UI needs an overhaul. Wasting bottom screen space with 5 tabs, 3 of which are what we use, is kind of pointless when slack and discord have more proven, user friendly UI. Nix the tabs, especially the cvr hub and move to a UI with channels and such on the left of the screen with chat centered/right. This is the reason everyone hates using teams, no reason we can’t make it better.
