    It's too bad that most of the features/tips presented here aren't even available to all tenant types. How about tips for GCC tenants?

    It was nice to see the examples provided here however, the backgrounds feature is not available to everyone. It would be nice to see how to add, change the backgrounds.

    thanks for tips, very valuable.
    now that we are able to add our own backgrounds, that makes it more interesting!
    btw, I love Prague and was there last year on same date!! wonderful city!

    A worthwhile effort, but comments such as:
    * "fingers crossed"
    * "hopefully everything works"
    * "give it a second"
    * "just a minute"
    * "it's a little bit slow"
    * "congratulations everybody"
    * "fatigue with Teams"

    ...send a certain kind of message.

    Logging in to Teams twice to do something that should be possible as a presenter is problematic for most users. Avoid "tricks" and make them obvious features. Consult with real business users (not just IT pros) to better understand the challenges that non-technical users have with online meeting products.

    Focus development efforts on the desktop + mobile / dual-screen scenarios, as this makes Teams a more adaptable, more versatile, more usable product. Also, smoother integrations with PowerPoint, Whiteboard and Edge would enhance the value and utility of Teams IMHO.
