  2. Please add a thumbs down emoji for chats and conference options

    I would like to be able to respond to a comment or message with a thumbs down rather than an angry emoji. Disagreeing is different than being angry.

  4. Add multiple skin tone for emoji's

    I believe that in order to become more inclusive and diverse, it would be appropriate to have multiple different skin tones for emoji's. This would allow people from all backgrounds to express themselves in a way they can relate to.

  6. notifications

    It will be great if notifications can be muted when one is Out of Office. As MS teams in synced to Outlook, it should detect when someone is Out of Office and mute notifications on mobile automatically.

  8. mute a chat for 5 mins

    The kids are able to chat with each other in classroom chats, but sometimes they get a bit off-topic during asynchronous time. As a supervising adult, you don't want your student to mute the channel permanently, because they might miss an important communication later. There should be a way to "Snooze notifications" per channel, or "Mute this chat for 5 minutes" or something.

  10. Messaging

    Can you please add a feature where students can have two hands up buttons - one for normal questions one for urgent questions? Sometimes my hand doesn't get seen and maybe the urgent hand can deliver a notification to the teacher?

  11. Notify when seen.

    I think that you should have an option to be "Notified when seen". This concept is a button that you can use on one of your own messages, that appears when hovered over the message. If you are in a group chat, then you can choose options like "When Bob Seen" or "When Everyone Seen".

  12. Ability to block status updates (Users using @ mentions to chat even with chat disabled)

    Even with chat disabled, students are using the status window to @ other students and talk.

  15. Student conversation

    If a teacher says that kids can work with a partner how will they communicate? My idea is both to allow student private messaging or allow students to start Microsoft Teams meetings! Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this!

  17. i want you to add voice in chat reply section

    Sometimes students send me their homework or classwork to Teams chat. I want to say comments on them, that would be time saving instead of writing all the sentences in the typing section.
