  2. Enable PowerApps, PowerAutomate, and Forms Apps in Teams for GCC/Gov Customers

    Please enable the 1st party apps for Microsoft PowerApps, PowerAutomate (Flow), and Forms for GCC/Gov customers. GCC versions of these services exist but the Teams integrated apps are missing for GCC.

  3. Allow Teams Custom Apps/Bots in GCC

    Allow GCC customers the ability to upload custom apps/bots to Teams and enable the 'Manage Apps' section for GCC customers under 'Teams Apps' in the admin portal. Third party apps are now available (apparently), but custom apps aren't, doesn't make sense....

  4. allow multiple instances of Teams to be open

    I'd like to be able to open multiple instances of Teams so that I can have each instance open on a different Team and perhaps another instance open to the Chat. Not being able to do this makes it hard to keep track of where I am when I'm switching tasks.

  5. Freeze Chats in Meetings

    Please give meeting organizers the option to freeze meeting chats after the meeting is concluded. Owners can post a redirect back to an actual channel. Allowing meeting chats to linger on causes confusion and cannibalizes attention on channels.

  6. Improved/automated management of uploaded media

    File versioning should be automated. If I share "image.png" in a chat, and then share a different "image.png", I don't care what the name of the image is, so long as both distinct images appear in the chat history. At the moment, I get prompted to overwrite or save the "image.png" as "image (1).png", which is disruptive.

    Moreover, choosing the "overwrite" option has in the past created situations in which I am looking at one version of an image on my screen and a coworker is looking at a different version of the image on his screen. This situation should…

  7. Need reply to message option in chat

    Especially within a chat group, there needs to be a way to comment on or reply to a particular message within the chat history. This is useful when there are a number of simultaneous conversation threads (similar to how messaging is implemented in a channel), and is a common feature on other communication platforms.

  8. Easily toggle between shared images

    When viewing shared media (such as images or videos) within chats, there needs to be a way to switch back and forth between items with arrow buttons and/or the arrow keys. This is useful for comparing a series of shared images, for example.

  10. 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.

  12. Allow use of the default list view for sharepoint teams integration

    When adding a SharePoint tab in a channel on teams, you can select a list. Great, except for the fact it doesn't use any of the views we have created, it just defaults to a standard view with only a portion of the applicable data fields. It would be great if Teams could use the default view set up for SharePoint lists.

  14. Allow creation of meetings for a Private Channel ONLY

    Many folks in organization have private channels for management. From lower management executive private channels. We wish to create a video conference/meeting for a specific private channel only. Currently only Public Channels have this option. This is huge and I cant imagine others not needing this. We also hold specialized training for specific individuals who are part of a private group. We cant create these training sessions by simply sending meeting to specific private channel. Only work around is individually typing everyone’s name. We have over 35k employees. This seems like it would have been implemented from day one but…

  15. Increase the number of videos during Team meetings from 4 to around 25.

    Currently only 4 cameras are shown during a Teams meeting. We need to have up to 25 people showing instead of them rotating as they speak.
    Also we need to be able to mark at least 4 people as always showing if the number of attendees goes over the max limit, such as the suggested 25 viewers.

  17. Allow administrators to block "call me" options in Teams meetings while allowing organizers to call attendees.

    The 'call me' option for attendees in teams is costing a fortune in PTSN calls. Administrators need the ability to turn this option off, while still allowing meeting organizers to add dial out to phone users/numbers.

  20. 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.
