  1. 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. GET RID OF OOO POP UPS

    It is RIDICULOUSLY annoying that Out of Office Pop Ups appear for EVERY PERSON WHO IS OUT OF OFFICE every 3 seconds. Do you realize how often people in govt. TRAVEL? How many of those things pop up constantly? How f*ing annoying it is that they WILL NOT GO AWAY?? What MORON at MS thought it was a good idea to make them persistent?

  5. Microsoft Teams Delegation

    For a meeting scheduled using Teams, it would be great to be able for my Manager to delegate the organizer role so that I am able to create meetings on their behalf and add the Microsoft teams when the team needs to meet via video etc. this link shows you can do this https://support.office.com/en-us/article/set-up-a-delegate-to-take-your-calls-75e8c522-dde0-45b3-8fd1-8341f19740f9 but we do not have that feature currently.

  7. Send To Lobby

    Send To Lobby

    Hi,
    I wonder if it's possible make an option to send someone to the lobby again.
    I'm using Teams to take some court hearing, and one can't hear what other is saying. Every time I need to remove the person, and ask to rejoin and wait again in the Lobby, but sometimes people doesn't understand and left the meeting... It's quite anoying.

    Another option would be to put someone in hold.

    Could you do this, please??

    Thanks

  8. Thumbs down emoji

    Hi. We are using Teams for our leadership team meetings. We often have to take a vote. We found the thumbs up emoji for a YES vote but there doesn't seem to be a thumbs down emoji for a NO vote. It would be great to add that.

  9. Let us use Manager Schedule function in Teams

  12. Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    As it stands, there is virtually no way to accomplish this and the global lookup is limited to 25 people.

  13. Policy to Enable/Disable "Rejoin" Button in Policy

    We've noticed if a participant exits the meeting themselves, and "rejoins" with the button, they will bypass the lobby and join the meeting again. If they are removed by an attendee, they cannot rejoin (but they can access the link again and get back into the lobby, which is expected). So either force all guests to go into the lobby and/or allow us to disable/enable the "rejoin" function via policy.

  16. Create a different alert for reactions to comments. I would prefer to only be alerted if there is a new comment.

    In the toolbar I get alerts for new comments and also reactions to comments. If I am involved in several conversations, I only want alerts for new comments. Maybe create a different colored button or only alerted in Activity tab if there is a comment reaction.

  19. Give control to All during Shared Presentation

    During my pdf or web shared link presentation...I want to enable All my students to be able to share control during presentation. Now we have to enable only one person at a time.

    If it’s possible to have a feature to Enable All, so simultaneously students can work collaboratively to solve an online exercise.

  20. reminder

    Setup the option to create automated reminders such as
    "meeting in 30 minutes"
    "Timecards are due at 2pm"

    Etc.

    Slack and other tools have a /remind command for this.
