  5. Para una mejor "Experiencia"

    Debería de ser más rápida y más atractiva a la vista y por supuesto que deberían tomar en cuanta que son apps para interactuar con profesores por lo cual deberían implementar video conferencias fáciles de manejar y con un menú por cosas por hacer más simple como el caso de la app de "Google Classroom"

  6. Disable ALL email notification for MS Teams messages

    A simple option in Teams, which disables all email notifications, so that the only media where you see something about the messages is teams itself.

  7. BRB and other status commands optional clarification

    Right now using buttons or commands like /brb, /away, /dnd, /busy allows team members to see what you're doing and your level of availability.

    However it doesn't offer any fine-grained explanation that you would expect in person and is needed even more in faceless virtual office. If someone came up to my desk and I held up a hand to them and just said "busy!" and turned away that would be considered extremely rude and you would never do that. Yet that is what Teams offers.

    Teams should follow the Skype status function where free-form optional text offers customisable detail…

  8. Help app in Microsoft Teams unusable in dark mode

    If you set Microsoft Teams to dark mode, it makes code blocks and notes nearly unusable in the help app.

    The in-app Help for Teams contains notes in numerous places. They are displayed in a white font on an almost-white background, making them unreadable.

    For an example, click the three-dot item in Teams' sidebar menu ('More added apps'), click 'Help', click the 'Schedule a meeting' link and scroll down:

    Can this be fixed up? It works fine in Normal mode, and in high-contrast mode.

  9. /UpdateTeams command please (checks for updates)

    much like /whatsnew or /help I think it would be advantageous to /updateteams using the same command mechanism.

  11. Keyboard shortcuts to navigate directly to various channel tabs (Posts/Files/Wiki/etc)

    We can use Ctrl+G to navigate to a channel, but it opens on the main page. For faster navigation, it would be convenient to have a keyboard shortcut that navigates directly to, for example, the Files tab. Or a keyboard shortcut to navigate channel tabs quickly.

  12. 'Insert link' button available in the compressed view ribbon bar.

    Our team post with links an awful lot. Would be so much quicker if the 'insert links' button appeared in the ribbon of the compressed view for posting.

  15. Fix copy assignments so it doesn't always post them as due the next day

    Current version saves all assignments as due the next day at midnight regardless of what the actual due date is set as. I then have to go in and manually edit each section of my class (each Team) to post the correct date/time.

  18. Changes to Teams for distance teaching in a public school middle school

    Got some requests from the Jason Lee Middle School Electives PLC for changes to Teams that would help teachers.

    • A ‘Student’ category with certain rights and privileges
    • Teams meetings can be terminated by the teacher(s) at any time
    • Students must wait in a waiting room before the teacher allows them to enter the Teams meeting
    • A student can be Kicked out of a meeting by the teacher as a punitive measure for inappropriate behavior
    • The ability for the teacher to hide inappropriate chat entries from other students
    • Restrict which students can chat and when…

  19. add name to outside number

    Would be good to add name when an outside number dials in so that the group can know who called in. Any person on the call should be able to type in the name on the outside number. I've seen this with other meeting apps.

  20. Offer a "tear off" tab feature for meetings

    Provide a function to open meetings in a separate tab or window, or "tear off" a tab to allow the normal Teams app to run as-is for chat, calendar, etc. while in a meeting. This would be very useful since I often use browsers in this way, watching a process or something in a separate monitor while viewing a training video on another monitor. This would greatly enhance usability
