  1. GCC: Configure Meeting options when scheduling meeting

    Currently, you have to schedule a meeting and send out the invitations before you can configure the meeting options for Teams functions like "who can present". Beyond extra time required for meeting organizers to go back into meeting they just scheduled to configure it, this design prevents meetings created on a shared calendar from being edited at all, effectively blocking anyone from presenting.

    Please enable the meeting options to be configured when you are adding attendees.

  2. Mute a participant only for me

    If several participants from an office take part in the same conference on their own laptops, problems always arise, as there is always very annoying feedback and echoes. Is it not possible to set the program so that I can mute a participant just for me? If you mute this participant, he is also muted for all other participants. Then a conference in the same room with several team members would be possible. This means that one person always has to sit alone in the office.

  6. Allow transcription-gcc-bot to be hidden in meetings

    Why does the transcription-gcc-bot take up valuable real estate during a Teams meeting? Please enable a way to hide the bot so more human participants can be seen.

  11. Improve participant selection for video chat

    Need everyone on my team listed so I can select who I want on the call, with a select all and deselect all option, and post-select all customization. Typing in each member after having already done that step to create a team is cumbersome.

  12. Give control to All during Shared Presentation

    During my pdf or web shared link presentation...I want to enable All my students to be able to share control during presentation. Now we have to enable only one person at a time.

    If it’s possible to have a feature to Enable All, so simultaneously students can work collaboratively to solve an online exercise.

  15. Thumbs down emoji

    Hi. We are using Teams for our leadership team meetings. We often have to take a vote. We found the thumbs up emoji for a YES vote but there doesn't seem to be a thumbs down emoji for a NO vote. It would be great to add that.

  17. Behind scenes chat meeting with anonymous attendee

    For training services about government tech implementation. We wish to have behind scenes chat with anonymous attendees in a meeting in order moderator could support any of them when stays behind, like software use training, without interrumpting presentation by organizer. With raise hand feature available this could be helpful.

  18. Include feature to display a timer in a Teams meeting for facilitators and presenters

    A timer feature available in Teams meetings to display for all meeting participants would be especially helpful for facilitating large meetings with an agenda of assorted topics and presenters to keep the agenda on track. Suggest the timer is fairly inconspicuous so as not to distract or add pressure to the presenters, but visible if you are looking for it.

  19. 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.
