  3. Translate

    When using the translate feature, we should be able to choose from a list of languages to translate the original message to.

  4. Have Team members show up first when starting a chat

    When starting a chat, the people in my “Team” used to show up as the first suggestions. Now they don’t so I have to search through all of DoD to send a private message to someone in my unit.

  5. GCC

    There appears to be a latency issue when using chat in TEAMS. It takes up to 30 minutes for the NMCI computer to update the chat where the I-phone TEAMs app updates chat dialogue instantaneously. There should be a refresh button that allows the users to update the NMCI computer when they want. Right now the user has to log off then back on to refresh chat in TEAMs.

  6. DOD


    1. Add more labels in the planner, five labels is not enough. 2. Provide an export function for the calendar view to a pdf, excel or word document. I take a screen shot and save it to powerpoint to share with members who are not on teams.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. I want to keep the guest email address private

    Since we do not want to disclose the guest user's email address to users inside or outside the organization, we would like to make it private.

    ゲストユーザーのメールアドレスを組織内や組織外のユーザーへ公開したくないため、非公開とする設定を希望します。

  12. Remove recordings from teams to diffrent easy accessible place only for recording.

    Also let the user decide the video quality of recordings so that they can access these on poor internet connection. (It won't load on poor internet connection)

  14. Searching for individual by "Last, First"

    When searching for people, allow searches to be in the format of "Last, First". Currently have to search for people by "first.MI.Last". People usually don't know co-workers middle names.

  15. Which CDN is Teams GCC using?

    I know the Teams provided background images come from a static CDN endpoint.

    The O365 CDNs are not available to GCC, however, per this article:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/use-office-365-cdn-with-spo (updated Feb 19, 2020)

    Therefore, I want to know which CDN(s) does Teams use in GCC?
    Which CDNs are providing the Teams backgrounds, and which other ones are in use elsewhere in GCC?

  17. Get rid of rapists in GIFs

    When you search, "Jello," in GIF's, there's an option featuring Bill Cosby. I get the connection but really? Let's stop giving that convicted serial ****** any platform, please.

  18. 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.
