  3. 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.

  4. Interchangeability of calendar and invitation/reminder functions in Teams and Outlook

    Need full access to Outlook calendars and an option to have email invitations and reminders for meetings interchangeable/in-sync with Outlook.

    Interchangeability of Outlook and Teams calendars and email invitations/notifications for meetings needed; Teams lacks the full suite of options available in Outlook, but the calendar/invitation/reminder function of Teams should really be fully interchangeable and compatible with Outlook. Otherwise, it leads to confusion.

  5. MS Project integration with Teams

    I’d like to be able to integrate MS Project online with MS Teams such that the Project application is made available through the Teams “add a tab” functionality. Currently, searching for “project” yields no resulting apps that I can add as a tab. Planner does show up, but not Project.

  6. 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

  7. Allow the ability to have a confidential discussion during a public live event

    We need the ability to switch to private mode for internal confidential discussion during a public Teams live event and then back to public mode. During the private discussion time, we should be able to have a message being displayed on the screen for example streaming will proceed soon.

  8. Mic default to off

    As mentioned in the non-gov Teams idea lists, the mic should default to off when people are joining a meeting. At the very least, make this a user option.

    A related, nuanced option would be to give an admin control to pin certain people (presenter) to on, so that they are untouched by the "Mute All" button.

  9. Allow muting channel conversations

    This is a feature that exists in the commercial version.

    Allow muting notifications for a conversation. If you've participated in a conversation, and it has a lot of activity, you get a notification for every post. I would like the ability to mute a conversation that I would normally get notifications for, temporarily. This shouldn't affect other conversations.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Move the tool bar

    Need the ability to move the Teams meeting tool bar to a different location. When a person is presenting, the tool bar hides a portion of the slides being shown.

  15. Show team name when shared document link is clicked

    When someone shares a document link to a Team file, there is no good way to know what Team the document is stored in. This context can be very important as a collaborative document is being worked on to properly understand the scope the document is intended for.

  16. Enable participant to remove their own video from their screen while still being visible to others.

    If you could toggle off the video screen showing while still keeping the video feed for others it would mean one more team member was visible to you. Many people find their own video disconcerting and distracting. If they could toggle it on and off it would actually enable more natural behaviour. An icon would be required to let them know they were still steaming with it toggled off.

  17. Allow presenter to be in presenter mode and also view the list of participants

    When I'm presenting and sharing my screen, I can't also see the participant list to know who's on, unmuted, etc. I would like to have the participant list open while presenting. Right now, I need to cut away from what I'm presenting to see the list... which interrupts the flow of my presentation.

  18. Please add a pause recording button in Teams.

    Hello, Please add a pause button to the recording feature. I need to pause when making How-To videos to reset the screen, take a break, etc. I am sharing these instructional videos with colleagues and team members.
    Thank you!

  20. Have a set of key words for alerting

    I understand the Search and Filter functions, but am suggesting being able to set key words and get alerts when those words are posted.
    The ability to set key words that alert you if mentioned by anyone within any of the channels to which you subscribe.
    The ability to set key words in specific channels that may be different than and in addition to the main set of key words.
