  2. Make it so we can see who muted or removed us from a meeting

    My son is using Teams for virtual school, and one of the kids in his class keeps muting others and removing them from the meeting, which is super disruptive (they are in kindergarten). The teacher says she is making the kids attendees, so I'm not sure how this is still happening. It would be super useful to the teacher and parents to be able to see who is muting you or removing you from a meetings.

  3. Shared OneNote in Chat

    It would be great to have a shared OneNote for a Chat in Teams (personal) as it is possible in the professional Teams or at least a wiki.

  4. Can you add a toggle button in the UI to make it easy to switch between work and personal?

    Make it easy on the user interface to toggle between work and personal teams. Done in the right way will help drive adoption of Teams for Personal use and not just work use.

  5. Integrate SMS on Android

    If you want widespread adoption, allow this to be the default SMS for Android phones. It is SO ridiculous that Signal is the only one that has this feature.

  6. Teams and Channels

    Add ability to create Teams and Channels like the organisation version.

    Chat alone is too restrictive if you want to organise and collaborate on events and projects in a family.

    Or at least allow paid upgrade to use this function.

    Maybe rename them to something like Groups or Projects.

  7. Bring actual teams with channels in the consumer app

    The organisation version is a very capable and powerful app that unfortunately is not available for the professional non-corporate consumers that want to colaborate with others (the ones who are not a part of a company). In my opinion, I don't think that this version of Teams will be used just for casual chat and needs some more features from the org version, like actual teams with channels and different threads with apps and files. The current group chats are preety similar to a Skype group chat with some extra features and even though they might work well for some…

  9. Allow Unmuting

    Please allow hosts to unmute individual participants. Three and four year olds are using your system and this is a big issue in Prek clas

  10. Teams full screen restoration request

    After recent update to Teams, we lost the option "Fullscreen". It is now very difficult to conduct office meetings because we share lot of material, and now it is very difficult to read. Please restore the "FullScreen" capability quickly and ensure that full screen takes 100% real estage.

  11. Expense tracker, bill splitter

    Like SplitWise - for a group trip or project: let group members log expenses, upload receipt photos, automatically calculate who owes what to who.

    For a household group, this could work ongoing for food, bills etc, even better if expenses can be categorised.

    This is easy functionality used in loads of apps, and really useful - over 5m people use SplitWise alone. Why not bring it all into teams

  12. Paste unformatted text

    Pasting text without formatting requires first pasting to notepad then pasting again to Teams. Skype allows an option to easily paste without formatting. Thank you

  13. Package Tracker

    A place to add a package tracker would be helpful for listing known packages and delivery dates for those items arriving at home. At the same time, it can notify the group of the estimated arrival.

  14. Automatically create group with my Microsoft Family

    When I set up a Microsoft Family, it automatically creates a shared OneNote notebook, and an Outlook Group with every family member. There is also a shared calendar.

    It should also create a Group in Microsoft Teams with every family member, and use that same shared calendar as team calendar.

  15. Make it work on multiple devices with only one account.

    Make it work on multiple devices with one account. Cells when I am on road. Desktop when I am at home. Tablet when I am in a field. I don’t want to talk with my coworkers always thru my phone.

  16. Update Chromebook version of App

    The Chromebook version of the App (not web version) needs to have the 'Raise Hand' and 'Pin' video options integrated. (The web version does have these, but does not allow for seeing other participants, which limits the sense of interaction for kids who are now using it for school).

    In using the App version, it allows for seeing everyone else, but the teacher cannot be pinned as the lead video, and there is no raise hand feature to allow for participation.

  17. Let me choose the account to launch from the context menu of the app icon on Android

    I should be able to tap and hold and get more options than Chats and Search from the context menu of the app icon. It should at least let me choose which account to launch in Teams.

  18. Make Teams as good as Zoom

    Some key features are lagging behind Zoom:


    1. If used for private business mainly with clients via social media - need to generate and share link without adding email addresses and emailing. This needs to be easy, simple and intuitive


    2. Easy and simple muting and unmuting participants - individual and All. Very clunky right now


    3. More meeting settings available to set up when creating a meeting


    4. easier access to option to play audio/ video in screen sharing mode


    5. option to spotlight and record speaker/ host and their screenshare only not everyone


    6. easy switch between speaker/ gallery view and better gallery view

  19. How about just making it work? It is buggy where it is embarrassing when I am presenting to customers.

    How about just making it work? It is buggy where it is embarrassing when I am presenting to customers. I don’t even have a place to comment regarding Teams and O365. The feature set is incomplete, and buggy, I’d happy if it just work, and the calendar is integrated with Outlook so that when I create a meeting in Outlook, it sure would be nice to ge able to have a toggle switch to use Teams, only in the Teams calendar can you dot that. It’s really frustrating and makes me wish that I stayed with Google.
