  2. Allow Teams Meetings and Add Member to copy/paste multiple names

    When adding users to a teams channel meeting, it would be beneficial to have capability to paste names in the "Required attendee" to field. The same would be true when adding users to a team. To have the capability to add multiple users in the same request entry would save time and make more user friendly for team owners.

  3. multiple identities access

    in my organization we use different identities in our communications and daily work. In a daily bases we need to connect to different MS teams instances using different identities.

    It would great if, as in OneDrive or Outlook, MS teams Allow to have different users setup. this will make the switch between organizations simple.

  4. Fix federation! Closed federation should mean CLOSED.

    GCC tenant has closed federation configured. All domains blocked except explicitly allowed domains. Users are unable to search for or communicate with external organizations as expected, HOWEVER, they are able to join conferences and share media with external organizations. Example: external organization creates a Teams call. GCC user is not invited. GCC user is accidentally forwarded the join URL, GCC user can actually join and participate in the externally hosted call, even though they are not federated. It's as if the federation list is only applicable to P2P calls, and not for MCU calls. Please fix this! This is a…

  5. Add contact list in government tenants.

  6. Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    Make it easy to add people to you Teams Contacts. Better yet, let users import contacts from outlook.

    As it stands, there is virtually no way to accomplish this and the global lookup is limited to 25 people.

  7. 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.

  8. Create a "People" tab in the far left column, so that I can view all (or some) members

    Create a "People" tab in the far left column, so that I can view all (or some) members. The "People" button could be placed right under "Teams" and would display a page of all members listed with their profile pictures (enlarged thumbnails) and names. This option could also allow filtering to view certain groups of people (e.g., depending on the Team they belong to, I might only want to view all the members and their pictures from Team Alpha). This would enable users to better acquaint themselves with members in the organization within a virtual environment.

  9. GCC

    As has been requested in the Public and School/University sites, the GCC platform needs to provide users the ability to specify their preferred pronouns as part of their profile. Those pronouns should show automatically with the user's name throughout the Teams application.

    Lack of this ability is causing difficulty for our staff who do not use traditional she/he pronouns. This lack is also counter to several of our internal and state government-wide initiatives regarding diversity, inclusion and anti-racism.

    It is 2021. It is well past time that this be integrated into this application, especially.

  10. Improve the Picture Update / Sync in Teams (GCC)

    There is a real issue with slowness and inconsistency to get picture changes to show up for people on Teams. Often if someone updates their picture it will show up in other places in O365 (SharePoint, etc) but Teams will either take forever to update or it just never will. That happens all over our tenant and updates to profile pictures are VERY inconsistent in Teams. Please fix that functionality in Teams.

  11. The user should be able to delete users in messages and call history. I only use it for meetings and nothing else!

  12. Provide one-click Status change

    Suggest you provide capability for a one-click status change.

    Ideally, there would be the four status buttons on the left side menu, PLUS a new button for Be Right Back (BRB), so you could make a quick status change without having to click on your profile picture and then select a status.

    Then I could hit the BRB button quickly, as I dash out the door for a quick break! See attached sample for how this could look.

  14. 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.

  15. Allow Teams To Be More Military/Rank-Oriented With Military Rankings In Naming Conventions

    Microsoft Teams seems to use a

    <First Name> <Last Name>

    system, especially in the mobile versions. For military/government organizations, it is more rank oriented and people's names are structured:

    <Rank> <Last Name>

    In the mobile versions, when speaking, your name shows up as:

    PFC X.
    Sgt Y.
    Capt Z.

    And it's hard to differentiate exactly who is doing what activity or who is speaking because of naming conflicts. For example, there are 5 people who have the rank of "Sgt" with a last name beginning with "K" and they all show up as "Sgt K.".

    Can we have some sort…

  16. Retrouver la liste des personnes affectées à une stratégie

    Trouver facilement la liste des personnes affectées à une stratégie.

    Actuellement il n'y a aucun moyen de connaitre l'ensemble des personnes affectées par une stratégie TEAMS par défaut ou une stratégie créée. C'est uniquement sur un utilisateurs que l'on peut voir les stratégies qui lui sont affectées. Avec plus de 1500 salariés dans mon entreprise cela n'est pas pratique. Cette liste permettrait de modifier facilement et rapidement les membres concernés (ajout suppression). merci par avance

  17. Transform a Large Meeting Invite (Attendees/Invitees) Into a Distro List

    Currently, it's extremely hard to copy-paste a large group of people from a calendar invitation into a new email or new calendar invitation without bogging down the computer (i.e., in my experience, it functions extremely slowly when there are 100+ people in the invite). Can there be a simpler way to create a distribution list directly FROM a calendar invite without having to manually input each name/email address individually? If this exists and I'm unaware.... please school me!!
