  1. Need to make it easier to add multiple phone numbers for 2 factor authentication

    Need to make it easier to add multiple phone numbers for 2 factor authentication. Cell phone and work phone because many people are teleworking from home but don’t have a cell phone on file so it calls their work number to authenticate, Or vise versa. Should be bake or go into user profile and update multiple authentication numbers

  2. 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

  5. Increase video call from 4 to 10

    The NHS Board consists of more than 4 members, so it is essential we have more than 4 video calls in the meeting. Starting to look elsewhere which can be frustrating and costly

  6. notifications from individual chats or teams

    I know overall notifications are in the account area, but I would like to modify notifications for individual chats or teams; if I do an overall setting I miss items in the popup flurries in any of the chats or teams and the pop ups stop mouse in its tracks and when i look in "activity" sometimes it doesn't show where activity came from and then I have to scroll through "Recent" .. or at least can chat or team with recent chatter (activity) to the top of the "Recent" list..? Thank you.

  8. The user should be able to delete users in messages and call history. I only use it for meetings and nothing else!

  9. Enable private side conversation while on a call

    As the courts are starting to leverage video conferencing capability there is a need to enable private voice conversations within a subset of call attendees. This should be a capability that more than the call organizer/admin can trigger. Think of it as a defendant talking in private with their representative. This is not currently a capability within Zoom and would offer a compelling differentiator for Teams.

  10. Recovery of deleted teams

    An accidentally deleted team cannot be recovered because the team is not generated between Outlook Office365 groups.

    Does an Office365 Outlookgroup correspond to a team created within Teams?
    Now it seems not.
    thank you.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Setting unique Notification & Ringtones for Teams (like you can for Contacts)

    Exhausted "searching" efforts to set a unique Notification tone for Teams chat, calls, etc (in both phone & app settings). Want to set my tones for Teams like I can for contacts. I must leave Teams running, but at times it's critical for my sanity (and productivity) to differentiate between Teams and other notifications (many meetings).

    NEEDED!...please help us :)

  17. Allow editting of Microsoft Word on Teams

    Please revert it back from "View only" so that any Microsoft Word documents can be directly edited on Microsoft Teams rather than the current situation where we would need to open it on SharePoint or Desktop App to edit. Those options would be valued but also rather not have multiple software open.

  18. Add Rol "administrador"

    Starting with Microsoft Teams it happened to me that I added several Owners and one of them deleted the team and I could not restore it.

    An administrator "Role" is required to prevent another owner from deleting the Team.

  20. Create a "People" tab in the far left column, so that I can view all (or some) members

    Create a "People" tab in the far left column, so that I can view all (or some) members. The "People" button could be placed right under "Teams" and would display a page of all members listed with their profile pictures (enlarged thumbnails) and names. This option could also allow filtering to view certain groups of people (e.g., depending on the Team they belong to, I might only want to view all the members and their pictures from Team Alpha). This would enable users to better acquaint themselves with members in the organization within a virtual environment.
