  1. Create home page that navigates to MS Forms Survey

    Hi there everyone,

    I am busy creating a survey for 17 teams using Microsoft Forms. I have created the survey, however, I would like to know... is there a way to create a Home Page before accessing the Survey where the home page has a drop down option that will ask you which team do you belong and when you select the team name and press enter, the next page pops up which will be the survey for that particular team.

    e.g. The Home Page has the question, "What is your team name?” And then there is a drop down…

  3. I should have my own folder(s) where I can organize and keep the most important posts

    It is an issue, when the post "disappears" after a certain amount of time due to "traffic". It would be nice if we could "fish it out" of the mass of conversation and "save" it in a folder of our own making.

  5. Converting speech to sign language by virtual bots

    It would be great for Teams to launch a AR/VR or AI enabled digital avatar to translate speech/voice to sign language. This would immensely benefit the hearing impaired during events, live sessions & meetings.
    Having an avatar/AR/VR would make accessibility fun & interesting.

  6. Keyboard shortcut to raise hand in a meeting

    It would be helpful, especially for people with certain disabilities, if there were a keyboard shortcut to "raise hand" in a meeting, so that people could program external interface devices (custom button on keyboard or mouse or other accessibility device) to activate this command. For instance, children with disabilities attending class online using Teams.

  8. More intuitive, less complicated

    It has too many tabs. I normally don't know where to cluck to find my stuff. It doesn't have the intuitive layout/organization of a Microsoft product. As it is a product you have bought, perhaps you should go back to a white canvas and designed it from scratch. I tried to avoid having meetings, courses, or interact with my colleagues through Teams. I dislike that my kids school use this app as it may things very comucated. INTUITIVE and SIMPLE project sharing and meeting app that integrates easily with other Microsoft products. That's what I would like. Thanks.

  9. Present, AND see 'Chat' AND have a mouse pointer that my audience can see!

    At the moment, when I start a meeting, I goto 'share content' button, choose 'browse' select my .ppt, and present. This allows me to present from within the TEAMS window, so I can see chat and breakout rooms etc. HOWEVER, I have no laser pointer or mouse pointer or highlighter function if I present like this. Could you add this feature?

  12. Add ability to "pin" contact list to keep it visible

  13. Portrait mode on the desktop app for vertical monitors

    When using Teams desktop on a vertical monitor, allow for a view similar to the mobile app instead of crushing everything into a tighter view. For example, move the tab buttons to the bottom and organize the chat view like the mobile app instead of forcing the user to click chat, select the conversation, then click in the conversation to start typing.

  14. allow separate windows for "Teams" pin vs "chat" pin vs "call" pin

    I would like to be able to open up the chat tab in Teams without having to leave the file I am reviewing in the Teams tab. It seems that there should be a simple way to have each tab on the left of the window be it's own separate window.

  15. Allow students to tag segments or sections in a recorded class

    It would work like this:
    The students can tag on the video that, from minute 2:18 to 13:19, the professor was talking about History of Law.

  16. A GIF and emoji content filter

    Children are using Teams for school. There should be a content filter for emojis and gifs so students aren't clicking on images of **** women or guns.

  17. Adding ticks or comments to uploaded jpegs from students in assignements

    I know this question has been asked before but wondering if there has been any progress.

    I really am trying to promote the use of assignments in TEAMS, rather than using our VLE. My students have their own pre-printed workbooks that they work in. Whilst distance learning they are required to take a picture of their completed pages and add these pictures to the assignment. This part is fine, it's the part when I really want to add ticks or comments to the jpeg pictures. It's possible to do this on our VLE although it's so slow in viewing any…

  18. Bold your own name when your microphone is picking up sound

    The bolding of participant's names when their microphone is picking up sound or speaking works great. It would be nice to know if my microphone is picking up background noise that others may hear but I don't realize it.

  19. Always display names on video tiles

    An option to keep video tiles labeled with names at all times, as opposed to only showing somebody's name when you mouse over. I marked this as an accessibility issue because I provide closed captions, and when I join a group of 20 unfamiliar names/faces, it's critical to have a reminder as to who is who. Right now, those names vanish from the tiles after a few seconds, and I have to mouse over to see again who is speaking (or rely on the participants list).
