  1. Ability to disable recording in breakout rooms

    Although attendees and external users should not have the ability to start a recording it is important to the integrity of the Hearing that no one be allowed to in the breakout room. An option for the Host to enable recording (for use cases other than Hearings) would be helpful

  2. The ability to move individual participants in/out of lobby/breakout rooms

    In hearings, we need the ability to move people in and out of lobby (and breakout rooms) individually without the option of them returning to the meeting without approval.

  3. Allow SharePoint Properties to be Updated in MS Teams

    When setting up a view with the file structure it would be wonderful to be able to update those fields/columns in MS Teams instead of needing to bounce back into SharePoint every time.

  4. Edit display name functionality

    For virtual hearings, or other online meetings with external users there is a need to maintain privacy and at times a need for the meeting organizer to edit participants display name during a meeting.

  5. GCC

    We use a series of Teams to serve as "rooms" in a social learning community with channels underneath as private work/collaboration rooms. We would like to be able to turn off members at the Teams level the ability to create meetings since they get inadvertently distributed to hundreds of individuals in our division.

  8. Bookmark Files/folder/pages

    Add a feature to Bookmark or Favorite pages/folder/files, and then have a tab on the Left Side of the screen (where you access Teams, Calendar, Activity, etc) to access your favorite files and/or folders

    Many of us have multiple channels with multiple folders and files and I cannot keep track of where everything is. This current system sucks

  9. Teans Breakout Room functions for all presenters

    Anyone identified a presenter in a Microsoft Teams meeting should have the ability to create breakout rooms and jump to different breakout rooms. Only allowing the creator of the meeting limits any support staff.

  12. Simplify feature purchasing

    Per all 365 tools, large institutions often have cumbersome purchase processes. Paying extra for individual little services is a pain the [bleep]. Thus, maybe allow ANY feature to be used, but those with an extra fee are so marked. There would be a pool of available "feature credits" included in the plan that one could tap into. If the pool grows empty, then throttling starts and perhaps non-intrusive notices. The throttling and notice frequency increases with "feature debt". It's not an all or nothing situation that can suddenly keep people getting work done, but a gradual and increasing nudge. Plus,…

  13. Option to hang up a call and remove existing members

    We frequently have calls where people forget to hang up, and then are holding the call open and causing the recording to be way longer than it should be. Can we have an option to kick these people and hang up the call, rather than needing to kick them one by one? (Also, the fact that it's so easy to forget to leave a call is a huge issue with users.)

  14. Allow users to configure their Team to Land on the "Files" tab instead of "Posts."

    When you select a Team, it takes you to the “Posts” page. This is usually an empty page and then a user needs to select "Files" to get to where they really want to go. I would like the ability to configure preferences to land instead on "Files"?

  15. Dept of Veterans Affairs

    How about adding a bolder highlight to indicate the current day on the header which has date and the day of the week? See attached file. The current orange line showing time of day which is slightly bolder on the current day needs something more to be useful at a glance.

  16. CVR

    Why can't I have the "Show Conversation" window and the "Show Participants" window open at the same time? Right now if I open one the other closes.

    I would lose nothing on my screen as my colleague's screen share only utilizes half of my 49" ultra wide monitor.

  18. User will be able to rename his/her displayed name

    I wish there is a feature in Teams meetings wherein you could rename your displayed name (and/or the organizer) so that instead of the name of the account holder you could change it to represent an office or a location. Thank you!

  19. DoD

    Allow me to stay logged in without continually needed to verify my credentials. Stop pretending like this is a classified system that requires reauthentication every 24 hours. There are FAR more important important systems with real classifications that do not require constantly calling phones or sending codes to numbers for authentication. This is a Microsoft adapted software, it's not secure, it's not classified.

  20. Add a "raise hand" feature for phone users in meetings.

    Meetings planned on Teams often have most people joining by video, but some also join by phone, whether out of personal preference or for reasons of accessibility. There is currently a hand-raise feature for video users, but no such option (that I've found) for phone users. Adding something like the teleconference classic "*6" would provide more equitable access to phone users in Teams meetings.
