  1. An Outlook App to the Teams Apps Store

    Outlook is always open on every computer in the class. It would make sense for all Microsoft products to be accessible from within teams, rather than all of them except for Outlook.

    This would be on the right hand tab tray, just like the integrated "files" tab for one drive, but would instead display the users Outlook inbox and allow for composing and managing emails.

    As many of the other Microsoft apps for teams are portals or clones of their webApp equivalent, I don't see why it couldn't be done. There are external teams apps that do this in under…

  5. Better chat

    A good idea would be to have some kind of team indication on chat rooms. Maybe a symbol? Right now all message "rooms" are displayed as equal under the chat tab, but maybe it could be possible to collapse or expand the chat "rooms" related to each team, or just display a symbol next to the person you are chatting with so you can see which team(s) he is in?

    My idea is to make a group of people and if you mention the group name the message will be sent to all of the people in the group.

  7. Please allow students to message each other.

    Kindly prevent the administrator from disabling this option. I have no access to social media at home, and I really want to meet my friends. Its been six months since I spoke to them. Also, it will be useful when we want to do group projects.

  13. There should be an option to privately chat one student, so you can tell a student to (put away their pet, put on a shirt, stop doing flips)

    This will enable a teacher to suggest something to a student without embarrassing them in front of the whole class.

  15. Make Insert Image available in quick polls of Teams Chat box.

    When creating/inserting a poll in chat box, enable image to be inserted. Feature is only available in regular Forms but not with Forms created in poll directly in Teams chat box. Insert Image as part of question should be made available as well

  18. Student Messaging

    Make it to where students are able to communicate with one another via text in Microsoft Teams. This way students are able to talk to each other just like in the classroom whilst still being muted during class. A lot of students aren't allowed social media at home. This would help them be able to talk to their friends who they haven't seen in almost six months. Please consider this as it may help us students feel more welcome and comfortable in this app. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  20. Muting the Q&A in Live Events

    There should be an option for viewers to mute the Q&A during a live meeting. During a teacher professional development for my district, there were 6000 participants. So many people were commenting in the Q&A and the little dinging noise was incredibly distracting to me. It was pinging every 10 to 15 seconds, making it hard to focus on the presenter.
    Is there a way to mute the Q&A already? If no, could one be developed? If yes, could it be located somewhere more intuitive?
