  1. Annotation Tool in Assignment-Tool of Teams

    Hi,

    I am a teacher and I‘m used to make annotations in the assignements Students send to me. Usually I work with itunesU and there is the possibility to open the document and write with pencil or typewriter-Tool into the Document. I am missing this Tool in Teams.
    Here I only can give a Feedback in a special Space.

  2. Organize Teams into groups or folders

    Allow Teams to be grouped into custom folders such as favorites or priority.

    Most larger organizations have many teams for many projects that require a more eloquent options than just Active/Hidden.

    I personally have 18 teams I need to pay attention to and organizing them will sometime have me miss something further down the list as i would need to scroll down to see them.

    This would be a simple solution as it would only expand the current system in place.

  3. Whiteboard and breakout rooms

    Having run a college staff training session on running teams their is an overwhelming need for an easier breakout room functionality. Staff also really like a web based version of a interactive whiteboard that logged who had written each comment. Can we please add this to Teams whiteboard, without the need to download an app, which our college IT system does not allow.

  4. 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).

  6. Disable "reply" in the General Channel

    Would like to be able to block "Reply" in the General channel, as is possible in other child-channels of a Team.

    Looking to use the General channel as a one-to-many comm platform for an ad-hoc org team of over 2k users. Moderation is limited: can block who can post/originate messages, but not block reply options for members. With so many users responding to official postings in this channel, the General channel becomes all but useless.

  7. Planner in private Channels

    Hi All,

    I created a private channel today and then tried to add a MS Planner tab to the channel, but it does not appear as an option.
    Can you enable this option in Teams?
    Thanks in advance!

  8. Control Camera

    Please enable the option of being able to control the participants' camera in a meeting, so that the meeting organizer can decide who to turn the camera on and off as well as the microphones. We don't need to turn off all the users' cameras, but to decide when the meeting organizer turns on the camera and when he turns it off.
    Thank you.

  9. Create a new category called "Reviewed assignment" under the "Assignment tab" to make it easier for students to find a reviwed assignment

    Hi,

    Many teachers spend a lot of time to review, comment and mark student's assignments.

    After doing so, we return it to the student and we are expecting that the student will find our comments and reviews easily under the "assignment tab".

    Unfortunately, when the student logs into his account and click on the "assignment tab", the reviewed assignment can be found under title "completed assignment". This is not logical nor intuitive.

    It would be better to have an additional category/title called "Reviewed assignment" or "Commented assignment" or some other logical title to make it easier for the students to…

  10. 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.

  11. Delete Chat Messages

    Hello Microsoft Uservoice,

    we need the ability that a user can only delete his chat messages, not his replies in teams channels (because of auditing and transparent visibility).

    At the moment the teams global message policy inherits the option “Owners can delete sent messages”. That implies teams chat and teams channel messages. So it would be great to have a more accurate configuration possibility for the global message policies.

    Best regards
    Oliver Kreis

  13. Feature to pause the screen sharing

    There should be provision to pause screen sharing so that presenter can work on background when some meeting does not require active screen movement by presenter.

  14. Transfer Voice Calls to External Contacts

    We have recently implemented Teams PBX solution. Currently i cannot transfer a call to a saved Outlook contact that is external to the business. All internal business users are fine. Surely we should not expect users to manually search, copy and paste a phone number into the transfer call field?

  15. Notification sounds.

    There is no option for notification sounds. I don't receive any audible notifications any time someone posts in a channel or feed. There is a visual notification but I don't have this window in view constantly, so an audible sound would be great. Hard to believe this isn't already an option.

  17. Notification of Hand Raised during Screen Share across all applications/screens

    When someone is presenting during a Teams Meeting, and while sharing a specific application on a different screen, when someone raises a hand, the person doesn't get notified if they don't have the Teams task options on that screen. Please add a feature to notify the user across all applications/screens during the screen share.

  18. Archive old assignments in Teams rather than delete them.

    Can you add the provision to archive assignments in Teams?

    Our teachers are currently relying heavily on Teams to deliver Remote Learning to students self isolating due to Covid19. As we all assign more and more tasks we don't want to delete them as this will lose the valuable record of work needed for assessment and evidence for LA review and OFSTED inspection. But at the same time teachers don't want assignments from weeks, or even months ago cluttering up screen space leading to confusion for students and teachers alike.
    An archiving or exporting function it would improve things greatly. …
