  2. Mute student conversation for large Class Teams

    I have discovered that the ability to Mute Members' Conversations in Class Teams to stop them from posting in chat does not work for large classes (more than around 90 in my testing). Upon clicking 'Mute All' I am told it is 'Unable to mute members at this time'

    This is a bug which needs to be fixed please as we have groups containing large numbers of students and this feature is especially imperative for these large Class Teams.

    Thank you

  3. New way of conversation (Please vote)

    (Use of the link is given at the end of the article)

    By https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/users/2323166872-microsoftuser1,

    It would be great if you add a text to speech option as it is in mobile phones; for the desktop users. It would be convenient as we do not need to type the whole message (especially big) and it would be auto-typed by speaking. It would also be great if it supports many languages and yes, I have 1 more feature in which we can translate the text written in one language to another for eg. Hi in English to any other language or…

  4. You should add a thumbs up button that goes with the raise hand button.

    You should add a thumbs up button that goes with the raise hand button. That way students can agree even without a mic.

  5. Having the ability to delete unwanted messages in chats, or deleting the whole chat itself

    If we accidentally sent something on a chat (in class Teams or private chats with other students) that we didn't mean to post, we should have the ability to delete or edit those messages, or even the ability to permanently delete the whole chat history itself.
    Say, you sent some embarrassing or unrelated messages/images in the past, that you don't want to be read again and remembered. So, the ability to delete these messages would be very helpful. And if you just wanted to delete the whole chat history for both the sending and receiving end, to make it look…

  10. add eyeroll reaction to messages

    The thumbs up, laugh, heart, and sad face are all nice, but when you are on a team in teams the EYEROLL emoji would be an excellent addition as an instant reaction.

  11. Paste as plain text

    It would be very appreciated to add "paste as plain text" as an option when pasting text.

    We constantly paste code or formatted text and it's rare to want to keep the original format. I'm constantly pasting and copying into an intermediate text application to remove formatting.

    We need this feature in Linux and Windows app

  15. Include a "deliver quietly" option for messages.

    While sending messages, if there is a deliver quietly option, then it will be very, very helpful.
    This is required because, if the message is not urgent, or if person is in a meeting, but needs to see the message we can simply wait till he opens his chat.

  18. Chats and Messages

    Greetings, Microsoft Teams Staff...

    Requesting you to kindly add an option to delete chats and clear all messages in groups and personal chat accounts as they look like they're filled up in the chat section. This is a feature available in apps like WhatsApp and Messenger. Requesting you to please see through this as sometimes, packed messages can be pretty annoying when the inability to delete them is not present. Please do the needful. Thanks in advance.

    Kevin Sajan T.
    Student of Teams.

  20. Blocking People on Chat

    My school recently switched over to using teams because of the corona virus pandemic, so anyone in my school can privately chat me. I do not like the feature. 1) you should be able to send a request, asking if I can privately chat with someone. If they refuse, you cannot chat with them. If they accept, you can chat with them. 2) I believe that you should be able to block someone. I have recently been able to mute someone, but I still receive their messages! So please, Microsoft, make a feature that allows people to block people.
