  1. I want to addd voice command in pm 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.

  2. can you add Voice recording /command or icon/ to the pms

    when some student sends me his or her homework, it is easier to say my comment via voice. that would save time. Sometimes, it takes lot of time to reply all the sentences as typing.

  5. Adding automated messages to be sent to email to keep track easier in classes/work

    I think that a great idea would be to add automated messages from classes/ works to send important dates for projects, meetings, etc.

  6. Delete Coversations

    We must resort to deleting student accounts in Azure and creating new ones to delete chats that our students have. We have no ability to control anything after they have created the chat and inappropriate stuff has been going on. This is IMPERATIVE that we have the ability to delete conversations students have either from the Admin console or from the account itself.

  9. you should allow us to delete and edit messeges

    I don't know why you removed this, since in our school we are expected to talk with our teachers formally, but if i get a bad spelling in my messeges, i cant edit or delete it which is quite annoying. also sometimes i accidentally send a messege that i was searching up on gogle or somthing (e.g. i try searching up 'top ten facts about earth' but then the teams messege bar is selected, and it sends to my whole class, making the teacher think im cheating or something when im actually just trying to do some research for the…

  12. Please add a "Delete Chat" feature, it's impossible to have a chatting application without this feature.

    Like in all chatting or messaging systems there should be a "Delete Chat" option. It's highly needed for many purposes. for example my chat box is full of old chats that i don't need so it's important.

    Thanks,
    Please add this feature as soon as possible, I always like Microsoft but there are some weird mistakes that such a company shouldn't have had.

  13. flag chat messages as for action

    Where chat messages have been read and need to be acted on but not immediately, it would be useful to be able to flag them

  17. With teachers in mind now.. and for everybody to organise corespondation. Provide a way to group messages on chats.

    A teacher has a problem to respond on all chats on group of students who sent projects and works and find only them.
    Between 8 am - 9:30 am he must do it all.
    It's issue of searching, waisting time and avoiding mess.
    They have 100 maybe 150 students and some number of groups. It's a lot of messages.
    No one remember all surnames and album numberes.
    I think that will be simply and fabulous and less stressful for everyone.

  18. View all hidden chats/direct messages

    I think it would be great if you added a feature to the chats tab that will allow us to view all of the chats we have selected 'hide' on. It's hard to find them once I, for example, accidentally clicked hide, especially on a group chat.

  19. Extra Reactions

    I really love having the ability to react to people's messages and comments as it is an efficient response and they are easily understood. However, sometimes reactions including an eyebrow raise, eyeroll, or facepalm feel really relevant for certain situations, until I remember these are yet to exist as reactions. It would really be appreciated if you could add these reactions!
