  1. Provide External Meeting Attendees the ability to PIN Video in a Meeting for ASL Interpreting

    Allow meeting attendees outside of your organization to pin video of certain participants. The feature is used of by Adult Sign Language (ASL) interpreters in order for the both the interpreters and the person they are interpreting for to be able to see each other clearly during a meeting. Currently this can be done for all users inside an organization, but is limited when external guests are invited.

  3. Customisable Praise Badges

    Picture this - you've been engaged in a fierce debate with a colleague via the chat function on teams for the last 3 hours, until finally, in one foul swoop, the parley ends. Your colleague - Jim - has completely annihilated any hope you had of moving up the chain of respect within your organisation. He is unbeatable. A genius stuck in a modern man's world. Touché, you mutter under your breath.
    Hands shaking, you reluctantly move the mouse toward the 'praise' icon in the bottom right hand corner. You review the options... Praise? Courage? ... Leadership? These hardly seem…

  7. Add ability to archive or export private chats and team conversations in a local format such as Word Doc

    Although you may highlight then copy a team conversation manually and paste into Word, there is much to be desired for archiving important conversations in a local format. If an agency has retention set to 3 days, you are out of luck on day 4 and the saved messages vanish. It is crucial for us to be able to archive chats and conversations with the growing reliance on teleworking and remote collaboration.

  8. Individual track change option in co-authoring documents in Teams

    When co-authoring a document, we need to be able to set the track changes to on by user, instead of it being on for all. I cannot format or work on the document when other have turned on track changes as I don't want my formatting in track changes.

  10. Being informed of meeting, if you have not been sent the link

    Teams to call you if certain team is meeting, as if attendees have been sent a link to log onto a call, some homeworkers will not have received the link (if unable to access work email calendar & not been able to forward the link to their own email). Many people have to access teams on their mobile as microphone/ voice/ video not working on laptop. In other words: if mobile would ring when certain team starts any activity, if it looks like attendees are same as in a certain ‘team’, even if the original link to join did not…

  11. Two different logins

    Please have the ability to log into multiple accounts at the same time. Currently have to logout of one account then log into the other account. Would really appreciate this to enable tracking of multiple teams with multiple accounts.

  13. pop out chats

    With multiple chats going on at any given time and the inconvenience of jumping within Teams to various ongoing chats or other work, would really appreciate the ability to pop out chat sessions.

  15. Meeting Minutes for Chat

    Now that we’re having more and more meetings in Teams Chat, we’re finding a great fringe benefit: We literally get minutes of those chats for free. We can cut down on having the same conversations multiple times with multiple people just by sharing those minutes. However, copying and pasting is currently finickity, so my idea is to add a feature to support this directly.


    1. Click a button at the start of chat which says “Minute meeting.” When participants enter that chat, they see a banner which says “This meeting is being minuted and will be shared.” A second “Copy Minutes…

  17. Seeing if I'm muted at a glance

    Seeing if I'm muted at a glance. I would like the abiltiy to be able to see if I'm muted without having to move my mouse over the window to bring up the control panel. Suggest that a mic indicator be placed next to my profile pic that shows a graphic that indicates my mic being on or off.

  18. Multiple channels/accounts on desktop account

    Add support for multiple accounts to desktop app. I use teams for multiple organizations and the only way to keep all accounts up is through a sandbox program. I should be able to tab back and forth like the mobile app.

  20. Ability to stream Teams users' activity logs to Azure Log Analytics workspace

    When we rolled out Teams and some of the users experienced issues. There is no easy way for IT admins to analyse these situations. It would be very useful to be able to stream the Teams users' activity logs to an Azure Log Analytics workspace so we can generate reports such as:
    1. list of attendees to a meeting
    2. How they signed in to Teams clients ( by cross checking their AAD signinlogs )
    3. For governance and compliance purposes, generate list of activity records for a given user or users.
