  3. provide access to toolbar without being in a meeting

    Provide access to the toolbar without being in a meeting to add a photo to background effects. Currently you have to be in a meeting or join a meeting for this option to appear.

  4. Video Conference

    The video canvas should be able to change colors so the glow can illuminate faces and supplement bad room lighting. Yellows & Oranges.

    Additionally, give the option to tint colors of people who are not on video or have no picture/avatar to accomplish this illumination.

  9. assignments

    Hello, I'm from the Bridgeport, CT Early Adopters District Pilot. I would like students to be able to type something when they submit an assignment. It might be a simple assignment where they can type a short answer, or they might want to explain something when they submit it.

  10. In Telkos / Webkos für jeden Teilnehmer einzeln die Lautstärke anpassen

    Manche Kollegen haben laute und durchdringende Stimmen, andere sind eher leiser, ich würde mir wünschen jeden Teilnehmer einzeln lauter oder leiser stellen zu können.

  11. Add feature to send Teams message without preview in receiver's pop up

    It would be nice to mark a new message to someone as private so a preview of the message does not show in the receiver's pop up. In case the receiver is sharing his/her screen in a meeting, this would prevent others from seeing the content of the message.

  14. Enable tagging @mention on mobile app (IOS)

    Currently, you can’t add a tag for mentioning a group of people on mobile Teams app, such as Teams for iOS. This is very inconvenient when you want to make sure that target audience will receive a notification.

  15. Makes Teams Chat more Like Skype

    Skype for Business has been honed in and perfected over the past decade. The Grouping - the ability to have it only in the side (not taking up your entire screen), the ability to automatically pop out conversations, the compact size, etc. Teams simply ignores all the virtures of Skype. Make the Chat feature in Teams completely pop-outed so the contact list looks just like Sype. Allow the list to be much more compact. Allow the conversations to automatically pop out. The idea behind teams is fine - the execution is very disappointing.

  17. Outstanding Assignment in one place

    Would it be possible to have one place where the students can see all their assignments from across different subjects? At present, they have to go into each Team to see if they have any assignments that are still outstanding.

  18. I have my favorites set up but now I see them and a larger window area on the right. Is there a way for me to see just the list of my contac

    I really want to see JUST my contacts list (like it was in Skype...) and not the large window area to the right of it which takes up too much space on my screen. Really annoying and distracting. If I'm not IN a chat or meeting I really don't want to see all that.

  19. Assignments

    Hello,
    Right now, if I provide feedback on a student, whether they completed it or not, the assignment goes into their completed folder. This is very misleading to the student (and their parents). Perhaps there is a way the teacher could mark the assignment as completed.
    I am from the Bridgeport CT Early Adopters District Pilot.

  20. make your Office products truly customizable, finally !!!

    Well, I was just force-switched to Office 365. I knew it would be a rude shock but boy, this is so frustrating. I knew with every forced update from an older version to an (invariably inferior) new version of MS Office it is rude, but this time it is truly terrible. After having spent 3 hours Googling for solutions, like "how do change the color of the outlook icon so I won;t confuse it with Word", "how do I get rid of the toddler graphics in the Quick Access Toolbar", the answer always is: MS decided this cannot be changed.…
