  1. Live Event Enable Q&A By Default

    Please allow the Live Event policy to change the default behavior of Q&A so that we can turn it on by default.

    It seams like 99% of live events want the Q&A so it should be on by default and off if requested.

  4. Hide participants bar at the bottom of MS Teams

    While using DoD/CVR MS Teams during course instruction with many participants and a presentation, the bar of participants is always shown at bottom side of the meeting screen, even when in the new large gallery view. It takes up screen space and reduces the ability to see all the participants. Additionally it seems redundant to have the gallery view, and the participant bar. Could there be a way to hide the bar when you don't need it to be there, so more participants can be seen on the screen? It helps with the span of control in a learning environment.

  6. Fix screensharing on linux (DOD)

    Hello, I am running ubuntu 18.04. I installed the microsoft teams client from the debians maybe 6 months ago. The screensharing option used to work in calls. Then, one day, about two or three months ago, it stopped working. When I click the share button, there aren't any screen selections to click on. This issue happened to all of my coworkers running linux at the same time, so it is probably due to an update.

    Since we primarily use linux, this is a big issue. Fixing this glitch would make microsoft teams a lot better for anyone who uses linux…

  7. TEAMS

    Is there a feature in Teams by which we could open the meeting notes and the discussions are transcribed automatically without having to type? Similar to using the mic feature on MS word. This would be useful for accessibility, people with RSI who need to take minutes that go for hours.

    I know we can record the meeting and type later. MS word has a transcribe feature but when used in Teams it doesn't work properly, continuously and consistently. I am trying to cut down the post meeting typing time and save person from hand injury. I posted this in…

  8. GCC kuwait, Ministry Of Education, Public Education

    Hello, I have a recurring problem with the raise hand function. Because sometimes I don’t want to answer but rather ask a question and so it wastes time and causes the teacher to get off point. So i would suggest that you make a specific button to ask questions with the symbols of a question mark. Thank you for your cooperation.

  9. Provincial government in Canada

    In Outlook, we schedule meetings in Teams. When the reminder pop up appears and I click the Join Teams button it opens my browser first then it opens the Teams desktop app. This 2 step process is clunky and time consuming, is there a way to get it to open the Teams desktop app directly.

  11. Government

    There’s no availability for live captioning for calls and meetings on mobile devices. ADA compliance is being overlooked.

  12. Make it possible to remove people from video chats. Admin should be able to remove people from the active meeting.

    Admin should be able to remove people from the active meeting. This should also include removing people that are called but doesnt answer. Today when someone doesnt respond to video they are left "hanging" in the meeting and they get all the chat history also.

  13. Remove Automatic Speaker Pop Up Window

    It would be nice if the speaker window didn't pop up when I minimized the meeting window. I need to manually close the picture, with is rather annoying and requires a fair number of clicks on days where I have lots of meetings.

    This link covers the topic nicely:

  14. Payment Gateway Integration

    Please add an option to integrate with various payment gateways for paid events so the event invitation will also include the payment link and then only people who were invited and paid should be able to attend the event.

  15. In CVR, add meeting I'm attending to my calendar

    If a user has a link to a recurring Teams meeting, that they got (for example) from someone in an email or otherwise, They can join the meeting just fine.

    However, I'd like users to have the ability to add the meeting to their Teams calendar.

    I and some of my colleagues have several recurring meetings that for various reasons (which I won't expound upon here just now) we have created in Outlook, and pasted in the meeting details in the body of the invite. This works just fine, but the meeting does not appear on the participants' Teams calendar.…

  16. If i have teams call me for audio and I hang up the phone my computer meeting should also hang up.

    When I hang up I sometimes leave meetings open for hours marking me away. This is suboptimal. Yes I know I can just remember to hang up but sometimes I forget.
