  1. It would be great if we could archive assignments in Teams.

    We have only been using Teams to do distance learning for a few weeks now, but the list of assignments is getting long with the current one being at the bottom of the list. It would be great to be able to archive previous weeks assignments. I tried deleting a couple but that was a bad idea. Students, parents, and teachers need to refer back to work that was turned in from time to time.

  2. Options for Downloading Gradebook Data

    I would like to see options for users to check off for downloading their gradebook data. I'm thinking checkboxes of data to include in the download file such as:

    ___ feedback

    ___ points earned (assignment title)

    ___ points possible (assignment title)

    ___ fraction points earned/points possible

    ___ choose dates to include in date (date range)

    Thank you!!

  3. Toggle Between Teams without Going Back to Teams Menu

    Currently, when you're in a Team and you need to go to a different Team, you have to go back to your ALL TEAMS menu. Why can't there just be a drop menu (or smtg) that brings up your list and you can toggle between Teams right there. The extra set of leaving and coming back in is annoying and takes too much time.

  6. Separate Group and Personal Chats

    In the chat tab, it would be nice if one-on-one chats were organized separately from group chats.

    It is easy to mistake a group chat for a one-on-one chat which causes users to message a group by mistake, when the message was intended for a specific person in a one-on-one chat private chat.

    Other platforms have this feature, and it would be nice to see it in Teams as well

  7. If you are in a Teams meeting, and you click on a link to open a document in Teams, could we have it default to open in the Native app?

  9. Make attendee gallery bar moveable

    When an attendee shares a screen everyone's camera image is shown at the bottom of the screen. As it is natural to look at someone when they are speaking the viewer is looking at the bottom of the screen rather than into their own camera which is almost always at the top of the screen. This gives the impression others are not paying attention. This could be easily addressed if there was an option to move the gallery to the top of the screen.

  11. Join new conversations to existing conversation

    There is a common issue of new conversations being started in Channels, when users should use the reply feature.

    Please provide an option to join or link a new conversation to an existing conversation, as a reply. Ideally, the user that accidentally started a new conversation would receive notification that their convo has been moved/linked. This feature can be available to moderators/owners and have a permission option that allows members to do this as well.

  12. Make the Monkeys Dance to their Own Beat

    Would be great when I enter multiple monkey emojis (or the other "lesser" emojis) if they preserved their individual timing like when I initially enter them. Once posted, they all run in sync. Make this happen.

  13. Make the task/control bar invisible or configurable to not hide valuable information...

    There are so many requests in the internet to make the task/control bar within teams configurable but unfortunately no real solution so far.. I was searching for a solution and not able to find one, only the answer that the bar will vanish automatically after some time....

    This feature should really be easy to implement and would make a lot of user really happy... please take your customer serious and resolve this issue...

  14. Hide specific users in some teams

    It would be beneficial to some organization if Microsoft Teams add a feature of hiding specific users in some public/private teams in order to prevent other members to see them from the member list.

  15. l.boorer@griffith.edu.au

    Hi Teams Users,

    Some very clever people at our university have created a Teams Integration tool that allows automatic enrollment of our students and creates a new Team.

    What I would LOVE to see that on the Select a team type page there is a fifth option for us to use that allows us to add a link to our wonderful new Automatic Team Creation and Enrollment Tool.

    Thank you, Lenka

  16. To see the list of active users under Analytic tab in teams

    It would be very helpful if the end user (maybe limit to onwer and admin only) can see the list of active users under Analytic tab in teams

  17. Re-arrange answers

    I'd like to attach Teams posts as answers to other Teams posts, meaning re-arranging the posts.

    Scenario: Someone created a post with a question. I'd like to answer, but hit the wrong field and therefore my answer isn't an answer but a new post. It'll get confusing after a while if this scenario happens regularly and more often (to colleagues as well).

    So ... I'd like to clean up and attach posts that are actually answers to their original post.

  18. Voice Message Feedback in Assignments

    Add a record feedback button in the area where you can give points, rubrics, overall feedback in assignments. It would make marking x100 quicker if we could record constructive voice feedback rather than typing it out or editing the Word documents we set.

    Or add the dicate feature already built-in Word into the overall feedback section. It is a fantastic way of setting work in class but slow typers as well as the period of time it takes to load a document means marking is not as efficient as it could be on the app!

    Thanks for all your hard…

  19. Teams chat history export feature

    It would be good that Teams chat history can automatically be saved into Outlook folder like Conversation history (Skype does). I'm not sure if this feature still available in Teams, or we can have a way to export the chat to a file or something.

  20. Allow me to share multiple applications without sharing my entire screen.

    We often share during calls, but sharing the entire screen is not helping when reminders come in that distract from the shared screen and discussion. It would be great to have a feature similar to WebEx allowing the selection of multiple apps that are ok to share (e.g. all xls and all ppt, but not other apps).
