  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. Video Editing and Effects

    Hi,

    Please bring basic video editing to Microsoft Teams or using another Microsoft Video editor which can connect to Teams in Realtime

    By video editing I mean the following as an example:


    1. Set a caption for every vide screen, such as the name of the guest with adding background color to the caption bar in addition to logo and animated video as well as show and unshow effect


    2. Set a a logo or water watermark for every video screen, for example, if Apple and Microsoft is meeting then Apple logo to be shown on the guest from Apple and Microsoft…

  13. DoD

    Allow auto mute of hot mic after a user set delay. For example, during a meeting, a user speaks to present or comment, and once they are done, the delay begins. After the delay, the mic would mute by default to keep ambient noise and background conversation from interrupting the discussion.

  14. Add the three dots indicating someone is typing in the Team Meeting chats (similar to Facebook and phone texting)

    When hosting virtual meetings, it is impossible to know when to move on from a conversation topic because you do not know if someone is typing or if everyone is done adding to the conversation. It would be nice to see a status of when someone is typing in the text box while in a Microsoft Meeting.
    The three dots already show up in Team chats but for some reason do not show up in a conversation during a Teams meeting.

    Currently you have to use Teams Desktop app to Produce / Present in live meeting. This capability should be available in web browser.

  17. We use Teams in the GCC. We NEED to be able to easily capture the attendee list (for example, during a training session).

    We use Teams in the GCC. We NEED to be able to easily capture the attendee list (for example, during a training session) during a "regular" (not Live Event) Teams meeting.

    This is becoming a huge issue in my Fed. office.
