  1. Contacts in Phone System

    Since a couple of years we are using MS Phone system, which works really well.
    Now – because we are being forced - we are/were about to make the transition from SfB to MS Teams.
    For testing we bought an Yealink T55A, nice phone but it does not show the contacts from an Teams account.
    Turns out MS haven’t implemented the "Contact" features on the application yet.
    Forwarding incoming calls is hard because of this.
    We want to forward calls to an contact (telephone number), not necessarily to an Teams account!
    Phonesystem is more or less useless for us in…

  3. Join a meeting in the app by copying a url

    When working from home we use citric workstation to enter the workserver. If i get an email in outlook with a invitation to a teams-meeting i cant use it through the server. Thats why it would be a great idea to be able to copy the link-url from the invitation and pasting it into the app outside the server to join the meeting.

  4. Please make the slider bars wider

    Please make the sliders wider. I routinely- unexpectedly -rearrange pinned chat lines in the main chat zone; when in meeting unable to move quickly up and down the chat; and moving up and down a page in a Team/ channel requires an effort to snag the thin line with the mouse. Thank you.

  5. Chatvenster losmaken

    Net zoals messenger bij Facebook, zou het een voordeel zijn wanneer het chatvenster los kan worden geplaatst naast de Teams, zodat je kan chatten met iemand in 1 venster en ondertussen een bestand kan bewerken of iets anders kan bekijken in het Teams-deel.

  7. Remove recordings from teams to diffrent easy accessible place only for recording.

    Also let the user decide the video quality of recordings so that they can access these on poor internet connection. (It won't load on poor internet connection)

  9. It should work

    Zoom and Skype are better, more stable platforms. I haven't had a Teams meeting yet that didn't drop a connection.

  10. Searching for individual by "Last, First"

    When searching for people, allow searches to be in the format of "Last, First". Currently have to search for people by "first.MI.Last". People usually don't know co-workers middle names.

  15. Number pad not shown

    The number pad is not showing up when in a meeting. Therefore we can’t add external clients to a meeting. More information is required to help clients determine how to enable this function. It works great in skype for business.

  16. Hide talker icon

    In skype, during a presentation, we can hide the ‘Active talker’ screen…

    AND we can pop it out, and hide it.
    In teams, it always seems to take up space.

    Can we hide this… it takes up a lot of real estate

  18. Minimized popup

    When in a teams meeting and you minimize teams. It would be great to have the same popup as Skype for business does. Allowing to unmute and hang up and recover meeting fast.

  19. Assignment page

    It is really annoying, because everytime you want to view the assignment, first you have to choose the channel. It would be much better if it was as before. Just view the newest assignments, so the people don't have to click on each channel to find it out.
