  1. 911 ringing

    When our users are dialing 911, they don't get a ringtone. This causes them to get confused and hang-up thinking the call isn't going through. They resort to using their cellphones to call 911 each time this happens. Ringing should occur with every no matter if it's emergency or non

  4. Adjust the exposure of the video to the person's face

    When I sit in front of a window, Teams tries to expose for the window instead of my face, which makes me look like just a dark outline. I don't think people are interested in the window; theyre interested in my face- so can Teams (for desktop) try to expose the webcam input to expose for the face?

  5. Teams GCC Cloud

    Please bring back the purple side bar, or let that color be customizable. The icons blend in with the white and it's hard to see. Dark and high contrast are not good options.

    200 Channels per Teams is not enough. Please increase the number of channels to like 500 channels.

  7. GCC

    Our audit and investigations teams maintain a public facing “hotline” for the general public to report fraud, waste and abuse. Being an easily found an accessible number we receive a lot of abusive type of calls from the general public which may or may not concern our office. We currently maintain a “list” of the repeat offenders and now it is responsibility of whoever is answering these calls to identify the number and send to voicemail. As you can imagine, there are issues with this manual process. I have inquired if we can simply block the callers and the response…

  8. Add independent meetings to teams channel after meeting occurs

    Maybe I can connect the old Febraury meeting to my new teams channel - but I don't think so...
    I had a meeting about a project before deciding to proceed with project. At that moment there was no need to open a teams channel. However, a couple of weeks later, we decided to proceed with the project. Information shared in the initial meeting chat, meeting minutes, and files now resides in an unconnected meeting. The project team still references the information from that initial meeting. I can either copy everything from the meeting into the new teams channel, or keep…

  9. Remove the limit of Private Channels within a Team

    Why is there a limit on the number of Private Channels in a Team? And if there is going to be a limit, 30 is WAY to low. Not everyone in a Team is involved in every project or task, so the need to have many Private Channels is a high priority for us.

  10. Team name alias

    In the Microsoft Team GUI the favorite team names show up on the panel on the left. The name of the teams here are same as the team name you create. But there are situations where you want a standardized team name across the company or organization. While you want a more descriptive and adhoc name show up in the favorites panel. For eaxmple, team name need to be a standard 5 digit number say 10200. This team may be doing "Product A development". So when you see the team on the favorite panel we would like to see "Product…

  12. CVR

    Why can't I have the "Show Conversation" window and the "Show Participants" window open at the same time? Right now if I open one the other closes.

    I would lose nothing on my screen as my colleague's screen share only utilizes half of my 49" ultra wide monitor.

  13. Add offline local Instant Messaging and Presence

    Add offline Instant Messaging and Presence via on-prem extension for locations that rely on Teams for collaboration but may have high risk for WAN disconnect, natural disaster, etc. - NOT having this ability could actually impair a team reliant on Teams from resolving issues effectively should BC/DR needs be triggered with WAN disconnect from MS cloud. I am aware of an SBC like local configuration to maintain dialtone, but this is inadequate in these scenarios.

  14. Filter events in Channels by date of actual event/meeting time

    Need feature added so events in Teams/ Channels is by date of actual event.
    If meeting time link is added on Saturday to Teams Channel but actual meeting is not until Monday. Now have to search back through until you can find event that was added Saturday. If participants don't add to calendar its a mess to find.

  16. DOD

    Make Contacts a dedicated feature in MS Teams that look and act more like Skype for Business. I don't know why you threw away all that functionality for this embarrassment of a contact list buried in Teams Chat with no useful features.

  17. Wenn Sie Teams im deutsprachigen Raum anbieten, dann machen Sie Ihren Rückmeldebogen auf Deutsch.

    Lassen Sie die gleichzeitige Ansicht von Chat und Präsentation bzw. Teilnehmenden zu. Lassen Sie verschiedene Handzeichen zu. Lassen sie Chat zwischen einzelnen Teilnehmenden zu. Teams ist viel zu wenig interaktiv! Die schlechteste aller digitalen Sitzungs-Apps!

  18. Allow additional 2-way authenticators

    I work in a building that doesn’t allow cell phones & unauthorized electronic devices. We also alternate teleworking in the schedule.

    There is no way I can use my work phone as an authenticator & still be able to use text authentication at home. Give us the option to choose. Right now I’m forced to reset two-way authentication every time I switch between work/home & it’s a real pain.

  19. Prevent Team Owner from renaming Team

    Our Teams are currently created by the Teams admins.
    Their names are carefully chosen.
    The Team Owner should NOT be able to change the Team from the name the Teams Admin has set, especially in Government tenants.

    In the mean time, the Teams admin in government tenants should have an alert/report that shows when Teams have been renamed.

  20. New posts in teams mobile

    In teams, Chat on mobile shows the number of new or unread posts, but it doesn't tell me which ones they are. I have 3 new items, but can't figure out where they are. I have about 12 that are bold, some of those are old meetings , not sure why they are still bold. I can't filter to just show the 3 new ones either. How do I find the new ones?
