  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Live polling and survey capabilities.

    We currently use MS Forms, but need the ability to post surveys live on the screen during a workshop and obtain answers immediately to show polling data/answers.

  9. EMERGENCY! VOICE AUTOMATIC AUDIO GAIN IS TOO LOW AND IT'S AFFECTING OUR GOVT CALLS! PLEASE ADD A SLIDER AND LET US DISABLE AUTOMATIC GAIN!

    HELLO,

    THIS IS MR DANNY ON BEHALF OF THE GOVT OF NEW YORK. WE HAVE BEEN MAKING MEETINGS FOR OUR VIRTUAL HEARINGS AND WE WERE NOT ABLE TO HEAR MR.JACK AND ZUCKERBERG CORRECTLY BECAUSE OF THE AUTOMATIC MICROPHONE AUDIO GAIN.

PLEASE ADD A SWITCH TO DISABLE AUTOMATIC GAIN AND MAKE A SLIDER TO ADJUST AUDIO GAIN MANUALLY FOR NEXT WEEK BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE HEARINGS LIKE THESE AND WE WANT TO HEAR WHAT OUR THIRD…

  10. Live Annotation Tools

    Having live annotation tools for Teams Meetings/Workshops where the attendees can give live input on the screen, similar to whiteboard capabilities. This would be helpful for keeping meetings and workshops interactive and brainstorming ideas.

  11. 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.

  12. Pop-out Chat and/or Participants window options within Meetings

    As a Teams Meeting user, I would like the ability to enhance my options for viewing the Chat (or meeting conversation) and/or the Participants List with a "pop-out" feature.

    The ability to pop-out these areas (similar to the existing fly-out or pop-out option for a Teams personal chat) would allow users to:

    • Enable an option to utilize the Meeting screen real estate more efficiently when viewing and/or sharing content and video.
    • Permit users to resize the amount of space the pop-out chat or participant list takes up on their individual monitor(s) or screen(s) with ease.
    • Allow users…

  13. Allow for presenter to see chat and hand raised

    In Teams meetings, the presenter cannot monitor the chat box or the hands raised, which makes presenting really clunky. Inevitably someone needs to monitor the chat box and interrupt the presenter rather than allowing the presenter to handle it when they want.

  14. Add a virtual, "I agree with this"

    Similar to the new hand raising option, which is really helpful, how about a way to say I agree with the current speaker. It could either be something switched on and off or you can press the button to "send" an agreement. Almost a virtual, "hear hear" - so people don't have to come off mute to say they agree whennthey don't have anything else to add to the conversation.

  16. Provide ability to remove users added to recurring meetings' chats

    Reposting another users suggestion from the Public User Voice

    We have the following scenario that cannot be remedied without deleting a recurring meeting:
    1. User A and B have a recurring weekly meeting in Teams.
    2. User C is invited to join the call on this meeting during one instance.
    3. Even though User C has not been invited to the recurring meeting, User C now has access to the Teams chat of the subsequent recurring meeting instances.
    This seems like a huge bug that you cannot remove a user from seeing the chat of a meeting to which they…

  17. 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.

  18. Allow transcription-gcc-bot to be hidden in meetings

    Why does the transcription-gcc-bot take up valuable real estate during a Teams meeting? Please enable a way to hide the bot so more human participants can be seen.

  20. Please add functionality to Team application

    I work in state government and we use Teams. I have also used a different meeting application in my non-profit role. There are some features I really miss when I'm in Teams. Please add: whiteboard functionality and breakout room capability. You recently added the ability to see 9 videos at once, but you can't scroll through screens to show more individuals who have video on. I would love the ability to see all video participants.
