  2. Ability to print all or some parts of the Org Chart from within Teams

    Requirements:
    Need to be able to print all or some parts of an organizations org chart
    Able to specific number of levels per page; or default to max of 4 levels
    Able to add/remove what information is displayed; name/title/position number/phone number/etc.
    Print on-demand; I imagine it will not be printed frequently, but I am not sure.
    Ability to create what-if scenario of the organization; what if we moved this person here or what if we moved all operation people to another leader (probably outside scope of this request

  4. New customizable indicator like the the small circle that identifies your current status

    With distributed working becoming the norm and the workforce using different modes and tools to communicate, it would be great for coworkers to know how individuals can communicate. This could be done by adding another indicator like the exiting status indicator (but maybe a square). The organization would develop the 'legend' for the different colours. E.g., I am someone in the OPS that is ready and able to have a fully enabled Teams meeting = purple, I use Teams, but I'm new at it = light purple, I am currently only landline telephone enabled = blue, etc. etc. Potentially this…

  7. 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.

  9. Allow GUI export of Team membership, including guests, in GCC

    Currently, there is no way to export the list of a Team's Owners, Members and Guests. This is very important for large Teams where membership must be audited regularly.

  11. Include Organizer, Presenter, and Producers in the attendee list

    Please include organizer, presenter, and producers in the attendees list. This will not only improve the reports to be complete and accurate, but also simplifies the process for users. The current attendee list is short sighted and does not meet business needs. Please include all who attended the meeting.

  12. Sign in

    Multiple sign in options. I do not have access to my cell phone at work and I switch desks frequently. signing in is difficult due to the two factors authentication. I cannot sign in because I am never by the phone.

  14. CVR Teams does not work thru DoD firewalls well

    Teams features such as Voice and video Do not work acceptably between folks on DoD networks such as AFNET and folks on commercial connections. We need Teams to not require network re-engineering to make it work

  15. End use of third party cookies by Teams

    Teams in web browser needs third party cookies to work right, but that is a massive security hole that DoD will not allow. You can kind of work around it by Allowing sites, but this doesn’t work for many teams features (files, etc)

  17. 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.

  18. GCC - Teams Mobile App Cannot Override Out of Office Status

    Teams mobile app cannot override your status. If you are marked on your calendar as out of office, no matter how many times you try to change your status, the Teams mobile app continues to reset to out of office status. On the desktop app, you can set your status as available while out of office on your calendar. Please normalize this functionality between desktop and mobile.

  19. Move out of office prompt in group chats

    The out of office prompt is very annoying in group chats, we tend to use group chats for our smaller teams and when a team member is marked as out of office or with a status it just gets in the way when it is above the message field and gives a cluttered feeling when trying to read through messages, especially when it is bright grey and re-appears after dismissal.

    I think it would appear less cluttered if the notification was not near the message area.

  20. Cvr.mil

    It would be great to have another choice for verification other than cell phone for those of us that work in vaulted areas in buildings with thick walls. By the time I pull my CAC card, exit the vault, get my phone from locked storage, walk around 100 meters to where I can start to get reception, By the time I can get back to the desk with a code, 95% of the time it has timed out. It would be great to have an email as a back up to the cellphone text.
