  1. Sequential order of "Raising of the hand" to follow non presenters in meetings

    We currently represent a Government IT department (Provincial Parliament in South Africa). We are using Teams predominantly in our remote work scenario since Covid 19 took stage. We have had great success with introducing Teams as a vehicle to facilitate our Parliamentary Sittings and meetings for Members of Parliament and staff. It works very well but for a few feature issues:
    Raise your hand feature:

    • Very good feature which predictably organizes the sequence of input from meetings.
    • Issue raised: For Attendees joining the meeting, there is no sequence of “raising the hand” to let the Chairperson know the…

  2. Allow presenter to be in presenter mode and also view the list of participants

    When I'm presenting and sharing my screen, I can't also see the participant list to know who's on, unmuted, etc. I would like to have the participant list open while presenting. Right now, I need to cut away from what I'm presenting to see the list... which interrupts the flow of my presentation.

  3. 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.

  9. 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

  11. Join a meeting in the app by copying a url

    When working from home we use citric workstation to enter the workserver. If i get an email in outlook with a invitation to a teams-meeting i cant use it through the server. Thats why it would be a great idea to be able to copy the link-url from the invitation and pasting it into the app outside the server to join the meeting.

  12. Hide talker icon

    In skype, during a presentation, we can hide the ‘Active talker’ screen…

    AND we can pop it out, and hide it.
    In teams, it always seems to take up space.

    Can we hide this… it takes up a lot of real estate

  13. 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.

  17. Fallo en reuniones desde android

    No se actualizan los equipos a tiempo real y no puedo acceder a las reuniones ya que me sale la actividad de días anteriores. Esto sólo me pasa desde smartphone o tablet, desde pc funciona perfectamente.
