  1. Assignments should be able to be sent back to students so they can resubmit either so they can act on feedback or if their work is not good

    All work entered needs to ha e feedback for students but this is not much good if the student can't have the chance to act on the feedback and improve or redraft work.
    A button to send work back to students or just to allow more files to. We submitted would be great

      • Reliability sucks compared to Slack

        Android version so often goes offline. While other chat apps work just fine. Web app is so-so... when the desktop app doesn't make sense to install or you can't. Desktop app also is not great.. sending a file causes the UI to just freeze for a while.

        • Make it faster to switch between accounts/orgs - it's very slow

          It can take 30s to switch between orgs/accounts in MSTeams - length of time makes the multi-org setup cumbersome to use...

          • Improve Stability and Performance of Video Calls

            The performance of Teams on video calls is really bad. It slows up, becomes unresponsive and I've had 2 blue screen of deaths (one from 5 minutes ago attached).

            Myself and 3 others have been using Teams for the last few months and all of us are experiencing similar issues on video calls. It seems to be worst on 1 on 1 video calls versus group calls.

            Once a video call is started, trying to use the buttons in Teams to share your screen or change your device settings are also very slow to respond. The problems may be worst…

            • Preference to open linked docs in local/desktop version of excel/word/onenote - and not always Office Online

              We use OneNote and Excel quite extensively. We share files via Team channels all the time. But opening them in Office Online is very very slow. We want to open the document in the desktop versions of Excel and OneNote as a first choice.

                • scroll performance - messages are grey boxes before rendering

                  scroll lag : scrolling performance (i.e. to previous messages in a chat/channel) is much worse than expected - messages don't render for a noticeable period of time

                    • Please get rid of the bar at the top of my screen when I screen share.

                      The bar sits directly over the browser tabs during a screen share. It's infuriating. Or at least allow us to move the bar somewhere less inconvenient. Thanks.

                        • why can't i save a pdf to Teams

                          PDF files cannot be saved to Teams which is a huge problem for my area of work. I manage an accounting department and my staff and I work with hundreds of pdf files. This is an obvious flaw in Teams and should be easily rectified. Another problem is not being able to open a PDF file in Adobe Pro while in Teams.

                            Please make it faster. It seems like it used to work very quickly and lightweight. But now doing any simple chatting taxes my PC!

                            The fan on my PC goes absolutely crazy once I start up a chat- and especially whenever I open a video chat. My teammates and I were routinely using this to chat throughout the day and now it is becoming a painful bandwidth hog.

                            I think this has been happening for at least a couple of months now.

                            • not responding

                              Since today, so basically the first work day after a couple of updates on Friday, Teams often "hangs" after I click in it. It seems to happen most often if I go back to it after not having focused to screen for a while or if I go into a new (large) chat.

                              Did something change in this respect?

                                    • It takes far too long IMHO for MS Teams to load after a reboot or logging on as a new user.

                                      And while it's loading, I can't really do anything else – even on a relatively new Dell laptop with i7 processor.

                                      • Slow response of Microsoft teams while scrolling through chat history

                                        Scrolling back through chat history or even searching of messages on the command type is time-consuming and MS teams responded slow. Hope this feature will be addressed soonest as possible. Suggesting if the usual CTRL+F within chat can be made possible too!

                                        • Automatically Update Status

                                          Have it so that when I'm in a meeting on outlook, it automatically changes to "In a Meeting", or if I'm sharing my screen it goes to "Do Not Disturb" and doesn't show my message notifications on the shared screen.
