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

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

    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…

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. GCC

    As has been requested in the Public and School/University sites, the GCC platform needs to provide users the ability to specify their preferred pronouns as part of their profile. Those pronouns should show automatically with the user's name throughout the Teams application.

    Lack of this ability is causing difficulty for our staff who do not use traditional she/he pronouns. This lack is also counter to several of our internal and state government-wide initiatives regarding diversity, inclusion and anti-racism.

    It is 2021. It is well past time that this be integrated into this application, especially.

  16. Add Apple CarPlay integration.

    Adding Apple CarPlay integration would open Teams up for greater mobile use for people in transit.

  17. 'SNAP-IT' -Screen snapshot to share in business TEAMS chat to supply to Company IT channel

    'SNAP-IT' -Screen snapshot to share in business TEAMS chat to supply to Company IT channel. T this is for employees who may be within a secured environment with policies applied where snipping tool and screenshare feature is disabled, however an admin controlled feature permits a snapshot share to an IT Channel in-app. This could be integrated into other apps providing service desk operations such as freshservice where tickets can be created from the SNAP itself as a visual is always a good idea to support the escalated problem for IT issues.

    Make the "call-me" function configurable globally for administrators to enable or disable just this feature. Currently, (according to support) the only way to do so is to disable the "dial-out" permissions on a per user basis, which has unintended consequences....doing so grays out the entire "phone audio" selection in the teams app, which forces users to refer to the dial-in number from the invite, which is an inconvenience.

    Make contact lists from Outlook available in MS Teams. i.e. Currently personal contact group can not be added to meeting invite, every person has to be individually added.
