  1. MS Teams: Right to create breakout rooms needed beyond organizer

    It is great that Teams Breakout rooms are finally here and will make my life as moderator for virtual trainings and workshops a whole lot easier.

    However, there will be instances where a person other than the person who send the original meeting invite (aka meeting organizer) needs the right to create such breakout rooms. Therefore the possibility should be provided that the meeting organizer can pass on the right to create and manage breakout rooms (similar to being able to switch people between the roles "presenter" and "participant" already).

  2. Balance email notifications on comment replies.

    A user receives an email notification when someone replies to his/her comment on a document. For elaborate documents with many comments, this feature results in the user's mailbox being flooded.

    We feel the experience could be enhanced without requiring the user having to turn off comment notifications.
    Suggestions:

    - Offering a user to pause notifications when a flood is detected.
    
    ○ Entirely
    ○ For the document
    - Use toast notifications instead of email.
    - Only send email notifications for @mentions
    - Ask the author of the comment to confirm before sending the notification

  5. Localization of Office 365 in Albanian language

    Dear Sir/Madame,

    I’m writing on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation of the Republic of Kosovo, regarding the localization of Office 365 and apps in Albanian language.

    Some of the apps in Office 365, such as Outlook are already translated and available in Albanian language, but our request is for Microsoft Teams to be localized in Albanian language.

    FYI: the region of South East Europe including countries: Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia have around 7 million citizens who’s mother tongue is Albanian.
    In this time of Corona Virus we are facing the language difficulties…

  6. Teams meeting attendance roster download

    Put last name then first for students as teachers' lists are all alphabetized by last name. Having to search for students by first name to take attendance from a meeting roster is creating lots of extra work during distance learning.

  7. Enable people to download an attendance list after a big meeting

    It would be good to be able to download list of everyone who attended at any point during a long meeting with a large number of attendees. Currently it's necessary to go through the Chat manually afterwards and count people up, or to run a report during the meeting but this only captures those present at that specific time. I run meetings from 10am to 3.30pm and inevitably some people only attend at certain times so doing the report mid-meeting doesn't capture everyone.

  9. An AIP Excel can't use sheet protection with CoAuthor permissions.

    In the meantime, the feature is only available for users with full control permission on the file, so for Owner and Co Owners.
    We would like to allow the feature for CoAuthor permissions, or have the ability to "change rights" permission independently of your role as Owner.
    So not all owners and, delete or edit the labels

  10. Allow tags when assigning work to students in Teams

    For teachers working with special education students, the team assignment process could be greatly simplified by allowing the teacher to assign work to a "tagged" group of students. This would allow the teacher to set up two tagged groups (general education and another with students who need modified versions of the work being completed) and when they create the two assignments, they could assign each to their respective tagged group. This would cut down on many of the steps needed to complete this task now. It would also keep students in the classroom unaware that there are different assignments for…

  12. Excel Table VS Sheet Protection Conflict

    The Table Object is one of the best practices for use in Excel, especially in the latest versions and in 365, but it conflicts with a fundamental thing: the protection of worksheets...

    If you protect your Worksheet, you cannot add rows.

    We also know that adding lines without any restrictions would lead to conflicts with protection.

    In this way, I created a flowchart and a simple demonstration image of how the process could be carried out.

    https://ibb.co/kxCKKrv

    Please evaluate the idea.

    Regards,
    Fábio Gatti

  13. Create a personal carbon footprint calculator of Office365 services

    Environmental footprint is an important topic, and awareness about the topic is rising at personal level, but also enterprise level.
    IT represents about 4% of global carbon footprint, and IT users don't know what is their digital carbon footprint.
    Idea would to include in MyAnalytics, a carbon footprint calculator so that each user could see its own carbon footprint

  15. Microsoft Teams Large Gallery Scroll Bar

    With Microsoft Teams, using the Large Gallery view, it would be really nice to have a scroll bar to be able to scroll through everyone sharing their video. Zoom does it, so should MS Teams! :)

  16. Perform background validation before allowing user to cancel meeting with numerous recipients

    Had an issue where user (Human Resources) who typically sends large audience invites and mass mailings inside the company. Organizer attempted to cancel a meeting request with ~3000 attendees. Organizer clicking on cancel caused the meeting to be removed from their calendar, but also got NDR for 3000 cancellations not sent due to exceeding 24 hour throttling. Can a pre-cancellation validation be performed to avoid this? Organizer was not able to cancel the meeting after the throttling period because the meeting was no longer on their calendar and support had to be engaged to remove the invites from the 3000…

  18. Allow Table of Contents /t switch to support across cultures

    Microsoft Word supports building a Table of Contents by mapping specific styles to a TOC level. This is enabled with the /t switch.

    However if you use Word's built-in styles such as "Heading 1", the entry is captured as text in the TOC field. This means if you open the document in another language/culture (for instance, French), the style name for "Heading 1" changes to "Titre 1" and is not picked up if you rebuild the TOC.

    Requesting that the TOC automatically map across different cultures.

  19. For new emails: Please have the cursor begin in the TO: field, not body of text

    In writing a new email, the cursor would go to the TO field, then we could easily tab down to write the email. Now the cursor goes to the body of the text, and you have to then physically move the cursor back up to the send field. Doesn't sound like much, but if you're writing a lot of emails, it is AGGRAVATING. Please fix this!
