  1. 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.

  3. Outlook Calendar needs more organizational colors

    Colors are used to effectively manage meeting schedules. We need access to a full color wheel, or at least a much greater variety of color that can be used

  6. Changing video background

    It would be great to be able to test and set your background without being in a meeting. It’s annoying that you can’t pre test and set it up

  9. Multivisione

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

    Unable to create teams unless you’re an admin position or access given by IT. Currently working from home due to the pandemic and unable to utilize Microsoft Teams without getting permission from IT.

  16. Ability to Restrict Users from changing HR Approved User Profile Photos.

    We are required to Manage the User Presence with in all applications through out the agency including O365. Teams seems to have ignored the administrator settings and allow the user to change their photo. this is a no go and opens the user to administrative actions.

  20. Assignment page

    It is really annoying, because everytime you want to view the assignment, first you have to choose the channel. It would be much better if it was as before. Just view the newest assignments, so the people don't have to click on each channel to find it out.
