    Make this work like Zoom, and ready Talk. In a Ready Talk or zoom invite process, there is a pop up to select any of the available numbers your organization has authorized as you create the meeting invite. These can include local numbers, and toll free numbers. We have global calls with over 10 different locations and putting the local numbers into a meeting invite is a must for mobile only users who may not have internet access to locate "local numbers"

    The only painful work around for this in Teams right now is to Ctrl-click the "local Numbers" link ion your meeting, find the local or toll free number on the invite and copy and paste it into your invite before you send it. Are we still living in the 90's here Microsoft? Simple thing to implement, but probably at the top of page 5 in terms of features you plan to add.

    But these simple things make Teams o unusable and hated by our users who enjoy the simplicity and thoughtful features of the competitive meeting systems. So hard to get people to switch hapily when simple features just are not present in a new tool.

    This feature is available in the Teams admin center. Wouldn't it be nice if someone actually curated these suggestions and let you know that. If you are getting the URL for the icon and not the actual icon, you don't have the icon properly sized. It can only be 60 pixel by 130 pixels. very tiny. And the URL must be accessible from the public internet, not hosted on a local URL. And even though you use a tiny image, Teams will blow the image up and cause light pixilation. But hey, at least the feature is there.

    Once again, Teams is not on par with Skype for business or any other modern meeting system.

    The meeting invites look like garbage on an Iphone native calendar. AS mentioned in another comment, the meeting link should not have a space, and should be formatted in the standard

    +1-123-456-7890,,98765432# in a plain text format that has space between it and the rest of the meeting link garbage so that a mobile user can easily find the link and it is clearly labeled as a click to call. See the elegant and simply formatted Zoom invite attached. Looks great on iPhone native calendar too!! no massive complicated 200 character link with %20 and %23 characters in it. If you expect people to be using the Outlook Mobile app to see invites properly formatted, that is very short sighted. Our external users are often not Outlook users, and in our survey, 90% of our internal users just want to use the native device calendar for quick access to meeting joins.

    This is happening still. typing indicator continues again below their last message for about 2-3 seconds, after their last message even though they are not typing. very annoying. All our users are starting to complain. You see their last message, see they are still typing again. Wait.... wait.... typing indicator goes away... are they thinking? Backspacing? Is there more to come? Guess not. 5 to 10 seconds wasted every time until you finally realize this is just a bug and there is nothing more coming. You move on, sad and lonely that there was no more, hopes dashed that the next message might solve the mysteries of the universe. Like why Microsoft won't curate this feedback board anymore and provide status on these annoyances. Or even publish a new roadmap on what features and bugs we might expect to be fixed soon.

    We have a Microsoft branded Polycom Round table and it cuts and crops with no panorama view. MS -please fix these small but annoying problems. People have bet on MS with Skype for Business and now Teams and your lack of support for existing equipment is killing us.

    Hello - is this user voice feedback even being reviewed and curated anymore?

    This cal lme back feature is so poorly done. Does MS even do UX design anymore with actual users. Non of our external meeting participants can find this call me back feature hidden under the tiny little "i" icons on the right top of screen. And once there, you have to hard enter your phone number. No save me feature, no connection to contacts etc.

    This feature is so poor, we had to enter a custom message at the bottom of our meetings, hoping we can direct new Teams meeting users to find the feature: For a call-back to join by phone: Join Teams Meeting, click the "ⓘ" icon at top right, enter your number (+dial code outside US) and click Call Me. Thank You.

    we surveyed. 90% of our 1,000 users didn't even know call back was available, or dial out.

    Great to have a new product, but it seriously needs work faster than it is happening. We just can't adopt this sub-par tool for our enterprise... we are getting killed by user acceptance.

    Please look at Zoom, WebEx, ReadyTalk, PGI and adopt some of their superior UI for these types of features.

    1000 votes and this is still in the backlog? Is Teams ever going to be capable of this function? Next version says it will have nine (9) video feeds live, that is still inadequate for our typical meetings. Still forced to use Zoom until this is fixed. Maybe MS doesn't think this is broken because they have Teams rooms all over their campus and don't understand the use case of how companies like to collaborate with live video of all attendees. Having the ability to toggle between all video, or focused video would be the ideal solution.

    This major feature limitation is the one main thing stopping us from being able to decommission Teams alternatives that we already use. Zoom.us must still be used for meetings with more than 4 video streams needed at one time (90% group meetings in our org need all videos live at same time to facilitate collaboration in our global setting). My leadership will not let me migrate to Teams only until this is available. (I was going to say "fixed" but MS doesn't seem to think it is broken, this was apparently by design to limit 4 video) It is frustrating that a collaboration tool doesn't support this very common use case. If I had one piece of advice for Microsoft on Teams voice/video it would be... Just make it work as well (features and functions, reliability) as Zoom.us!!!!!!!

    We have the call me back feature enabled on our Teams tenant, but it is hidden away under the tiny little "i" icon barely visible in the right corner. Of course it is only present for people who have Microsoft conferencing enabled on their O365 account (which is fine). But not having Teams prompt you at meeting join for the option to have a call back is a TERRIBLE user experience.

    People unfamiliar with MS Teams and migrating from other options like Skype for Business, Zoom, WebEx and are all familiar with Call Me Back being presented right at the start of the meeting, are so frustrated that they can't do call me back in a Teams meeting. Yet there it is hidden away in the tiny "i" icon and we have no way to tell them because their device doesnt support VOiP or their badnwidth is so poor (African Continent - global company) that we can't communicate how to find the Call me back feature.

    Does this User voice even work or matter any more? Seems like there is no curation of these critical items anymore, and no one from MS even commenting to give us hope that some of these feature might be coming in the near future. Is MS too focused on making changeable backgrounds and Whiteboard webcams that they can't fix this most basic of all current meeting platforms. The usability of this feature is currently UNUSABLE!!!

    None of our external meeting attendees can figure out where the "call me back" feature is under the tiny little 'i" icon barely visible in the upper right corner. Everyone thinks the meeting must be VOiP or they have to call in using the original option in the meeting invite.

    This is just one of the many features that makes Meetings in MS Teams nearly unusable

    This has to be fixed ASAP. Our all company channel is flooded with adds and removes and often people find out about a departure before it is announced because we suspended their account. Major HR issue here. We may have to suspend the use of all company channels until this is resolved. It is also very poor experience for any public channel that has a lot of people joining. New users get treated to a long list of scrolling added members instead of welcome message or other recent posts.
