    For customers with a Teams calling plan, when highlighting a phone number in Outlook, Word, Edge, etc., a right-click context menu should include "Call," which would place a Teams voice call.

    Ability to add a person within the organization as a guest of a team.

    My science center Data Management Team (DMT) uses Planner to track data releases through stages of the publication process. Each release has a task, each bucket is a stage of the process, checklist has work items to complete (including data and metadata reviews), reviewers are assigned to the task. Often reviewers are employees of the science center but not members of the DMT. We want to assign them to the Planner task without giving them edit/delete abilities (i.e. as a guest). However, guests are defined as…

  5. organize contacts

    Add an ability to re-organize contacts by dragging and dropping. Current setup requires users to manually add a contact to the new group and then remove from the old group.

  7. Don't skimp on the abilities of each app

    I created an excel sheet in my desktop app, then I upload it to TEAms so everyone can collaborate on it. The only thing is, Teams does not support all the capabailites of excel so my workbook gets messed up. Why?

    that's my question- why? why even make teams if doesn't talk to desktop apps correctly? why even make online apps if they don't offer the same features as the desktop apps? Just why?

    For my processes- it takes up my time to start aproject in the online app only to realize that what I need is only available in…

    Un-Convolute The Cloud/Tenant/Team Mess

    What a convoluted mess. If an individual happens to be a member in multiple teams across multiple cloud/tenants and say has personal individual and business MS accounts, it is basically impossible to determine which account is in control at any given time. Combine app with browser, multiple browser profiles and every helpful login redirects it becomes near impossible. Step away for a day and, well mostly just give up.

    If you are a member of a team in a single tenant, great tool. Multiple tenants? One needs a new wig cuz the hair is being ripped…

    Change the notification text that posts when a meeting attendee leaves an active meeting. Currently the following posts in chat viewable by all participants: "(Host name) has removed guest from meeting" leaving the impression that the host is actively kicking people out of the meeting. Recommend stating "(guest name) has left the meeting" or similar. The current notification is very problematic and disruptive in a high-tension meeting where the possibility does exist that the host may need to remove an uninvited guest from the meeting. If this is actually the case, the action should not viewable by all.

  11. How can I see if a Live Event has Q&A enabled prior to the Live Event starting?

    Hi, I have set a few Live Events and the Q&A was not enabled. I was sure I had enabled Q&A by checking the appropriate box when scheduling on Teams. Once the Live Event started, I did not have Q&A and it was a problem for me. How can I see if the Live Event invite has Q&A enabled prior to the event starting? This would be helpful if I can see (and re-verify)that option is selected. If this function does not exist, please look into adding it.

  15. 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.

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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。
