    La app nel complesso non è fatta male, ma dovrebbe dare la possibilità di vedere tutti i partecipanti al meeting non solo 4.

  5. Privacy

    Since this an app for government use on a personal device, privacy should be a number one priority. Full control of privacy should be on the user. I should be able to turn off the “Last time seen” that other users can see. Any other options that allow others to see any sort of status should be available to turn off.

  6. Interchangeability of calendar and invitation/reminder functions in Teams and Outlook

    Need full access to Outlook calendars and an option to have email invitations and reminders for meetings interchangeable/in-sync with Outlook.

    Interchangeability of Outlook and Teams calendars and email invitations/notifications for meetings needed; Teams lacks the full suite of options available in Outlook, but the calendar/invitation/reminder function of Teams should really be fully interchangeable and compatible with Outlook. Otherwise, it leads to confusion.

  7. Limit SharePoint access for guest accounts

    A guest account added in Teams gets added to the 'Member' security group for the underlying SharePoint site. The 'Member' security group in SharePoint has Edit permissions by default.

    A guest using the 'Open in SharePoint' option in Teams can therefore make changes to the SharePoint site. They can add lists/libraries, delete lists/libraries, delete site pages, edit the home page. The guest account should be more limited than that... maybe just Contribute access to the 'Documents' library which contains the files stored in each channel.

  8. Allow the ability to have a confidential discussion during a public live event

    We need the ability to switch to private mode for internal confidential discussion during a public Teams live event and then back to public mode. During the private discussion time, we should be able to have a message being displayed on the screen for example streaming will proceed soon.

  9. Behind scenes chat meeting with anonymous attendee

    For training services about government tech implementation. We wish to have behind scenes chat with anonymous attendees in a meeting in order moderator could support any of them when stays behind, like software use training, without interrumpting presentation by organizer. With raise hand feature available this could be helpful.

  13. Multiple shared screens

    Medical teams are running clinical meetings. We want to be able to share multiple screens at once. Eg radiology, clinical portal. Might driven by two different people.
    When i am viewing a meeting i want spread views over multiple displays so radiology is large.
