  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Spotlight - ability to spotlight multiple particpants

    We need a way to allow Teams meeting organizer to spotlight multiple users. During virtual proceedings, there is a need to keep the judge's video and whomever is speaking at that time on the screen. There is also a need to be able to hard mute all attendants and only allow them to speak when it is appropriate.

  6. Allow Guests to Participate in the chat of a Meeting owned by a MS Teams Channel

    We have Teams set up for certain work groups and advisory councils that can be used between meetings. We would like the Meeting invite itself to be owned by the 'group' rather than one individual user.

    However, their are many guest attendees/presenter at the monthly meetings and those guests need to be able to participate in the chat. Those guests are either added last minute or not appropriate to add to the teams space itself, so they cannot see the chat for the meeting if it is owned by a teams channel.

    To ensure that long-term planning can occur, while…

  7. GCC - Can't see PowerPoint presentations in Teams mobile app

    Using the present PowerPoint option instead of sharing the entire screen is helpful. And private viewing mode is great. But, in enabling these functions, you excluded mobile devices from seeing the content. Please add support for the Teams mobile app to view shared PowerPoint presentations in meetings.

  11. Participants pinned by the organizer should appear on everyone's main screen simultaneously

    The participants pinned by the meeting organizer should also be reflected in all other participants' screen. So that during a formal meeting, the important members could be seen in everyone's main screen simultaneously.

  13. 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.

  15. Seeing if I'm muted at a glance

    Seeing if I'm muted at a glance. I would like the abiltiy to be able to see if I'm muted without having to move my mouse over the window to bring up the control panel. Suggest that a mic indicator be placed next to my profile pic that shows a graphic that indicates my mic being on or off.

  16. mute a meetng

    When in simultaneous teams meetings ..App and Teams Desktop.. and possibly a third (phone)... can a mute button be added to mute the audio of a meeting so one could open the mic and respond to a query in a team meeting without the other meeting hearing the reply with the other meeting talking at the same volume level. Thank you

  18. Paging, pinging, or otherwise getting attention of a meeting participant

    In meetings, I want to be able to page, ping, or otherwise get the attention of a meeting participant. For example, if a specific person needs to answer a question, mute their background noise, etc., we should be able to click a button to get their attention. People's attention often wanders during online meetings, especially if they weren't expected to be answering questions.

  19. Multivisione

    La app nel complesso non è fatta male, ma dovrebbe dare la possibilità di vedere tutti i partecipanti al meeting non solo 4.

    There needs to be a manual method of removing the on-screen menu, in the event of broadcasting the output. Like, permanently removing the menu.
