  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Enable MS Forms Tab/Create Poll After Meeting has Started

    Please add the ability to enable the MS Forms tab/option and create a new poll once a meeting has already started, especially when the MS Forms tab was not enabled in advance of the meeting start.

    Scenario
    There are many times when we did not enable the MS Forms tab to a meeting prior to it starting and thus we cannot add/create a poll once the meeting is running. In this scenario, we need the ability to enable the MS Forms tab to an already running meeting and then create a poll to launch, all during the live/running meeting. Also…

  6. 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.

  8. allow call-ins for live events

    Call in for audio for Live Events.

    People need to be able to ask questions by voice for live events instead of just chat if they are calling in. They also need to be able to raise their hand so they can be called upon to so they can speak.

  9. 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.

  10. Intégrer un module de signature numérique dans Microsoft Teams

    Il serait fort appréciable que MS Teams permette la signature électronique des documents et plus particulièrement des listes de présence lors des réunions virtuelle.

  11. Manual control of the always on top Control Bar

    The tool bar is huge and distracting, and the inability of a user to minimize or move it is ridiculous. Waiting for it to disappear in response to mouse movement is a wholly inadequate feature.

  12. enable integration between paralel meetings or live events

    it will be appreciated to have multiple running meetings integrated for one single group of users such is the case for breakout rooms that are organized in a real conference. this could serve the purpose of running a virtual conference with benefits to participant to move from a room to another without having to exit the conference. it's helpful if Teams can have a master meeting (to replicate the plenary session in a conference) that could breakdown to sub-meetings where participants are eligible to join with a key or freely.

  13. Add a Guest role which allows only viewing, listening and being involved in the chat.

    There's a need for an additional role, one which allows participant to view and listen to the presentation but not to speak, to just respond or provide input in the chat.

  15. Permission based meeting recordings for Legal/Lawyers and their staff

    I work in the Legal/Enforcement Division of a state government. I am stunned that Teams does not have permission based recording that is controlled by the meeting creator.
    During a Teams meeting I had a laptop fail during a confidential meeting with attorneys, and I had to rejoin that meeting using the Teams App on my phone and when it launched somehow it began recording the meeting. I cannot emphasize enough the issues this creates. Immediate issues: A) I did not know I had started recording the meeting B) I had no idea how to stop the recording, and C)…

  16. Provide option to add text on name (rename) during meeting

    For easy identification of what organization a participant is representing specially for big meetings, having the option to add the organization acronym on name is a big help to meeting organizer.

  17. The ability to move individual participants in/out of lobby/breakout rooms

    In hearings, we need the ability to move people in and out of lobby (and breakout rooms) individually without the option of them returning to the meeting without approval.

  18. Add a "raise hand" feature for phone users in meetings.

    Meetings planned on Teams often have most people joining by video, but some also join by phone, whether out of personal preference or for reasons of accessibility. There is currently a hand-raise feature for video users, but no such option (that I've found) for phone users. Adding something like the teleconference classic "*6" would provide more equitable access to phone users in Teams meetings.

  20. Better video quality (hd)

    Currently the quality is very blurry compared to other platforms. I use a 4k webcam but its hardly 720p.. would be nice with 1080p at least.
