39 ideas for Webex Teams

Hi,

I already shared this in another Cisco-Forum and received feedback that this will be forwarded to the product management.

I am reposting this here to perhaps inspire you for even better ideas!

kind regards
Fritz

1

general

please merge Webex-Meetings and Webex-Teams into one product.

2

Please treat Webex-Teams like e.g. a Smartphone: a multifunctional communication-"device": think bigger.

3

User Interface

allow more customization like custom notification sounds and ringtones..

4

allow to choose / change the color of teams and spaces.

5

allow icons / emojis for teams and spaces - not just a circle with the first letter.

6

more eye-candy! a smooth scrolling effect in the chat.

7

more eye-candy! fade-in /-out FX of the video-image when someone joins/leaves a meeting

8

more eye-candy! re-arrange- /resize- animation/ fade-FX of video-images when speaker changes (not just a hard cut)

9

use arrow-key up to edit last chat-message

10

the "+" button the create a new team has the same size and shape as a team-icon: both are grey blocks. Usability?

11

team-icons: boring grey block without icons, emojis or even the subtitle... just the title and a lot of grey.
(or is there an "unread messages-Counter" I am not aware of ?)

12

how to custom-arrange the order of my teams?

13

there are at least 4 different (but very similar) shades of gray in the UI: mistake or (hard to see) intention?

14

some visual elements are not aligned accurately

15

allow custom sorting of contacts (by first name /last name / last-contact /domain, fully custom...)

16

some ui-elements do not have the same size, but should.

17

the magnifier-button is on the far right, but the response to the click happens in the grey area on the far left? (Usability)

18

Teams does not save it´s window-size and column-with (contacts vs. chat-area)

19

in german some UI-texts are too long to fit into the text-boxes..

20

visuals of cats, people in a boat etc. are "nice" but not useful since not intuitive (Usability)

21

most elements change color on "mouse-over" some don´t. (Usability)

22

contents of "Content / Files" can not be sorted (by date, size, type, contributor..)

23

allow to change the interface-language at any time after installation. (Usability)

24

Why is "Threads" a button and not a tab like "Messages, "Content and "Schedule" ?

25

Calendar-view has far too few options (week, 2 weeks, month, work-week, etc..)

26

Audio/Video-FX:

add Chroma-Key (greenscreen) features

27

allow to change basic video-parameters like saturation, brightness, flip left-right, up-down etc. (for outgoing Video)

28

allow to add a logo, banner etc. to outgoing Video

29

add a basic "equalizer" to allow sound-optimization (incoming audio)

30

features:

spell-checker does not automatically recognize the language; room for improvement.

31

allow to put custom-content onto the whiteboard (backdrop) to allow drawing on that content (plan, image, map, diagram...)

32

the image-viewer does not offer zoom with mouse wheel and has no "show at 100%"-button and no "fit to window/screen"-Button

33

add (admin-?) option to set a custom file-type (JPG, PNG..) and compression-level/resizing for images that are shared via copy-paste or drag-n-drop.

34

since there is no Black-/White-List feature to block unwanted contacts I can not stop "someone out there" to add me to his contacts.
since this "pairing" is automatically mirrored on my client: risk of DOS-attack by flooding me with dummy-contacts?

35

it´s not possible to add an image inline to text-message (some text, an image, some more text..)

36

open:

to any kind of contacts-source like private Google-accounts, Outlook.com-accounts etc. (not just G-Suite etc.)

37

to any kind of calendar-source like private Google-accounts, Outlook.com-accounts etc.

38

allow to add Webex-"apps" for all/multiple teams/spaces at once - not just one by one.

39

Data-Protection

allow participants to opt-out of meeting-Recordings. e.g. show a timer for 15 Seconds while joining asking "allow to record your content? Yes / No"
If "no" is selected, all content provided by this participant is not recorded.
Explanation: at least in Europe its common that phone-Systems ("welcome to company xyz, please dial 1 for ..")
tell you that your call may be recorded for training-purposes etc. and gives you an option to disable recording.

    When conducting a long (design review) webex with experts, I need to take notes on their comments but be quick and mindful of their time. Recording the webex is helpful so that I can review it later. A nice feature to add would be to give me a button to make a bookmark in the recording whenever there is something I need to review later. Then I wouldn't need to take the time to jot down notes outside webex.

    Teams window is way too large. The option to make it any size i would like needs to happen. We used to use Skype and the size of that window is what we are needing.
