  2. Enable meeting lobby and meeting options for GCCH

    Please enable meeting lobby and meeting options for GCCH.

    There is currently a button inside of Teams that says "Meeting Options" when I create or edit a meeting, but it does nothing. Our admins have triple check the admin portal and there is no option for meeting options or meeting lobby that they are blocking.

    Please enable meeting options so we can set the following setting for each individual meeting (not a tenant wide policy)
    - enable / disable entry tones
    - set meeting Organizer / Presenter / Attendee roles
    - who can bypass the lobby

  3. Release Power BI Tab for GCCH

    Please release the Power BI Tab /app for GCCH. Power BI is currently fully available for GCCH, yet the Teams connector and available to add as tab is not available, and there is no mention of development on the roadmap or documentation.

    Documentation lists this feature as "[...] not available in the environment and we don't have an estimated time frame for delivery."

  4. Allow attendees to pop out video of participants while someone is sharing content

    Allow participants in a meeting where content is being shared to "pop-out" the gallery/participant view to view in a separate window (instead of small images down below at the bottom of the screen).

  6. Development of a mechanism to coordinate and deploy Microsoft Teams updates simultaneously to specific groups of managed desktop computers

    The government needs to have the same Microsoft Teams version on all user profiles on all desktop computers to ensure users will have the same user experience and that appropriate security measures are in place.
    Furthermore, note that desktop computers are shared among users and consequently have multiple profiles. Users may not be able to log in to their profiles for months.
    To this effect, we would need for Microsoft to develop a mechanism to coordinate and deploy Microsoft Teams updates simultaneously to specific groups of managed desktop computers, or a feature that would make this possible on all of…

    200 Channels per Teams is not enough. Please increase the number of channels to like 500 channels.

  8. Add *ALL* chats to the Chat notification on the left bar

    Please add ALL chat notifications - DM and team channel chats -- to the "Chats" icon on the left. I often miss chats that are sent in a given Team-based channel, and I am not alone -- most of my colleagues miss chat notifications when coming from a team channel chat rather than direct message Chat.

  10. Add keyboard shortcuts for raise hand/responses

    It would be awesome if we had a keyboard shortcut for raising your hand, as well as the other "response" keys.

    This feature appears to have been implemented in public teams, but the Ctrl+Shift+K combination does not work on the GCC Teams that I've tried.

  11. Gerenciador de contas

    Gostaria que o Teams obtivesse a ferramenta de gerenciar contas, para que possamos remover uma conta que tenha expirado ou cancelada.
    E aproveitando o gancho, poderia liberar logo a possibilidade de gerenciar várias contas pelo desktop e não apenas pelo mobile.

  12. When your accessing the teams it is slow sluggish

    When the chats are there it should be deleted or have a word, which has got delete and then select the number of messages you want to delete. When I am trying have a meeting, the messages always say that we ran in to a problem. It is making me delayed for the meeting. I would like to mention, that Microsoft Office teams keeps on kicking people of the group.

    My Ideas are not to kick people out of the meetings, especially if they are having lessons.

    Make that there is a delete button, so that the people can delete…

    Add a THANK YOU emoji so we can express our appreciation at the end of an event, without contributing to a long line of chat messages that block the screen for transitioning to other tasks.

    Show me what kind of call I'm getting so I can answer in kind.

    Is it video chat, or voice only?

  15. GCC

    Our audit and investigations teams maintain a public facing “hotline” for the general public to report fraud, waste and abuse. Being an easily found an accessible number we receive a lot of abusive type of calls from the general public which may or may not concern our office. We currently maintain a “list” of the repeat offenders and now it is responsibility of whoever is answering these calls to identify the number and send to voicemail. As you can imagine, there are issues with this manual process. I have inquired if we can simply block the callers and the response…

  16. Allow moving notifications to an area where they are less likely to be missed.

    My configuration has four monitors and notifications currently pop up outside of the field of vision where I do most of my work. I often leave my headphones plugged in and do not hear the audio signals. It would be nice to be able to move notifications to appear right in the middle of my main screen or to have some other, optional method to get my attention, such as a screen flash or a kick in the shin, anything bolder to get my attention. - FAA/DOT user

  17. Status that shows Teams Chat was joined from a mobile device / iPhone

    Our work-from-home team of about 20 people supporting U.S. Government just switched from Skype to MS Teams.

    Mostly now with Teams we have a group chat session running 24/7/365. All users are running Win10 for desktop and iPhone’s with ‘Office’ installed that includes Teams, all devices join over a corporate VPN.

    Can you consider a setting for Teams Chat that will enable us to see that a person has joined from their Mobile device (iPhone) rather than from their Desktop?

    Thanks a Lot!

  18. Provide option to add text on name (rename) during meeting

    For easy identification of what organization a participant is representing specially for big meetings, having the option to add the organization acronym on name is a big help to meeting organizer.

  19. External participant meeting control - Whitelist

    Currently there is a radio button that by default doesnt allow external participants to recieve or request control in the meeting.

    It would be nice to have a whitelist associated with this option so only certain domains could be allowed control, ie microsoft.com to allow only Microsoft based users the ability to request or be given control of meeting.

  20. Collaboration between tenants

    With so many companies in different places on their inevitable march towards GCC High, collaboration between tenants is a feature needed now. I fear it won't be implemented until most are on GCC High and then it won't be needed as much.
