  1. Create a PLC Team from a Group

    You can create an Other or Staff Team from a Group, why not a PLC Team?

  2. When opening Teams for Web, remember user selection to choose the web version or the desktop version of Teams.

    My firm does not allow desktop Teams access from machines not on our network so when accessing from home, I am required to use the web client. Every time I open the Teams bookmarked web client, I'm taken to a landing page and have to click again to choose the web client rather than the desktop client. Teams should remember my selection so that I don't see this landing page every time I try to access the program.

  4. Education license for non-profit

    Alow non-profit (but non-accredited) education oroganisations to get an A1 license so that they can still teach their students. At the minimum, provide them with the "Assignments" and "Grades" tabs. This is currently impossible and a lot of educators are forced to provide remote learning due to COVID-19. Google provides this, why does't Microsoft?

  9. Add a Training Feature

    Under the Help Icon they mentioned a training feature that provided videos and other information and I think that would be helpful.

  10. Stop advertising featues without confirmation of when users will get them

    Fed up seeing tweets about upcoming features then finding out you have no idea when they will go live.
    Prime example is pop out chat. Been waiting for ever, then see a tweet back in November bigging it up for the new year.

    Now its the end of march and response back is "we don't know when it will roll I'll out".

    Ridiculous.

  12. Have a team preloaded of Microsoft people to help those who are new to Teams.

    When I loaded Facebook back in it's starting days, it came loaded with Tom as your first friend. I was able to understand how facebook worked because of that link.

    Teams should have a similar link to MS people who can help us newbies get started using Teams. Otherwise, though we load Teams, it will never get used by us who do not understand how it works.

  13. Setting Up Groups

    Have the setup or integration of accounts rollover from Outlook groups that are already setup. Maybe this is a feature already, but I cant figure it out. It would help enormously so we don't have to manage two groups of people.

  15. Even the feedback mechanism is too complex!!!! For goodness sake, simplify!

    Everything is too complex. Simplify

    And also, it take me away from the things I know. I’m old and can not adapt easily.

  17. On premise solution for Governmental Organizations

    It really is a shame that pure on-premise deployment is not an option at the moment. That means that Governmental Organizations working with classified informations and/or working in dedicated offline infrastructures do not have a natural upgrade path from Microsoft Sharepoint Server 2016 and Skype for Business 2015.
    In the EU this is a potential deal-breaker.
    This will eventually leave these customers with no other choice than to look for alternatives to the Microsoft products.

  19. make it possible to edit your name.

    My name is Alyson I prefer to go by Aly-- I am fine with people calling me alyson but I think this would be important for trans and nonbianary folx to be able to edit the name that shows up in chats.
