  1. allow call-ins for live events

    Call in for audio for Live Events.

    People need to be able to ask questions by voice for live events instead of just chat if they are calling in. They also need to be able to raise their hand so they can be called upon to so they can speak.

  3. Add the 'Reactions' into the quick reply box that appears when the Banner pops up to alert you of a new message.

    As the little banner pops up on the bottom right hand corner alerting me of a new message, it helpful adds a text box, so I can do a 'quick reply'. It would be useful if the reactions were added here, so I could do a really quick acknowledgement type of reply, instead of having to reply on typing text.

  4. Preview files when uploading

    When uploading files into Teams from OneDrive, Teams shows the files available, but does not have any preview of them. If the files are not named properly, it is difficult to tell what will actually be sent into the chat. Being able to preview files and images before sending them would be helpful

  6. Implementar acessibilidade em Webinars

    Hoje um produtor de um evento ao vivo pode compartilhar uma apresentação (ppt) e um palestrante ao mesmo tempo.
    Solicito que seja possível, num webinar, que o produtor consiga colocar duas pessoas no "ao vivo" de um webinar.
    Isso iria atender em um webinar com tradução simultânea em Libras.
    Hoje quem tem deficiência auditiva não pode participar de webinars pois já que não escutam, não vão entender nada.

  8. See list of members following a channel

    A Team can encompass a fairly large organization or project. The channels can be used to create communities of interest (COI) around a subject. It would be great to be able to see who is following the channel and what their online status is. This way we can see who will be seeing our post right away and if members that would benefit from following the channel should be invited in.

  9. separate gallery from presentation

    Add the ability to pop out the gallery (like you can in Skype) so you can have people in one window (or screen) and the presentation in another.

  10. Allow guests to change nicknames

    I like Microsoft teams but,
    Only teachers/Guards/Admin can change their nicknames.
    But it's just that teachers forgets who i am and who are the students, But it will be great if we can change nicknames, If someone has a bad nickname, Then atleast make a detector bot that detects bad nicknames.

  11. Allow owners to change descriptive title of guests

    I'm a project manager of host nation projects in Japan. I added some Architect-Engineer contractors as guests. MSTeams automatically used the names in the guest's email and difficult to identify who they are. Please allow owners to change their descriptive titles so it is easy to identify each and everyone.

  12. Enable share system audio for Team Live Event on GCC, so that we can share a video with audio.

    The commercial cloud has this enabled already. You're able to share a video as content during a live event and include the system audio. However, GCC doesn't have this feature. Please enable this for GCC!!

  13. Make the ‘join meeting’ button stand out more.

    Make button a contrasting colour. It looks like a heading not a call to action so tends to get lost in the meeting invite text.

  14. Make conversations appear as a thread.

    It’s frustrating not being able to reply to a specific team message.

  15. Enable Better Eye Contact, Move Video Ribbon to Top During Screen Sharing

    When someone is screen sharing, videos of participants are move to a ribbon at the bottom of the screen. Most (though not all) webcams are positioned at the top of the screen.

    Moving the ribbon to top of the screen would allow for the appearance of better eye contact. At least when people are not looking at the shared content.

  16. An automatic tracking of sign in and out of the office

    I know that Shifts and tracking of sign in/out via smartphone is there but most Govt. employees don't have Govt. phones to track. If just tracking the time someone logs into their computer/teams would auto-populate a sign-in/out file or timesheet, that would be great. Right now, this is a manual process and with so many working from home now, the manual process doesn't work very well.

  18. Add a virtual, "I agree with this"

    Similar to the new hand raising option, which is really helpful, how about a way to say I agree with the current speaker. It could either be something switched on and off or you can press the button to "send" an agreement. Almost a virtual, "hear hear" - so people don't have to come off mute to say they agree whennthey don't have anything else to add to the conversation.

    Allow setting on phone to only use WiFi. Had work vc and forgot mobile data on. now have 85% of monthly quota used in 1x day. Why is there no feature banning using mobile data on Android?

  20. Do not require profile switch for external users

    Teams requires users to switch profile between their corporate account and the external account. This is creating confusion for the users and results in missed messages, action items, documentation etc.

    Requesting enhancement similar to slack where all teams and channels can be viewed within a single profile.
