  7. restrict chat for students

    We want to be able to restrict the chat function for some students. This is a must for microsoft to add, we have students that are not able to cope with the rules of social media and can not be trusted with the chat-function. We dont want tod siable the chat for the whole community since many students use it in a constructive way but we need to be able to restrict chat for individuals.

    Please microsoft, make this happen!

  8. Delete past Team chats in chat mode (both sender and receiver chats).

    Chats should not be never-ending storage of a chat, and we should be able to delete individual chats as instructors or keep them ( both the sender and receiver chat). I realize we can delete our own, but we need the option to delete both our own as well as the students. We should have that option.

  9. Messaging

    I think that there shouldn't be the 'feed' section because it means that you cant see the new messages from piers, and you can only see messages where people have tagged things. A lot of my piers feel the same way and that it is a very annoying trait and downfall of the app MSTeams. I also don't like how you need a code to create teams and that is annoying as well as I cannot create teams between few people, just in our classes. This would be great if this could be fixed in the future :)

  11. When starting a new chat, it should be possible to select groups of students and teachers.

    Now we must choose students one and one. We have many groups of students in Office365 that should be available in the chat function. When we add new members to a Team we can use these groups.

  12. Merging conversations in Teams

    As a Team Owner, I would like to be able to merge conversations. I see too many people start a new conversation when they should be replying to an existing one. Over time, they end up becoming fragmented.

  13. Sound volume

    When I receive a message in Teams, it makes an almost inaudible sound even though I have my volume turned up fairly loud. Please allow the notification volume to be adjustable, and also allow us to pick our own notification sound from a list.

  14. The ability for the teacher to share a conversation across multiple teams

    Having to copy and paste the same conversation in multiple classes(teams) can be redundant. Especially if I have an announcement for an event I want all my students to know about.

  16. Ability to Copy Conversations

    When trying to copy and paste a conversation from the desktop app (in Windows) or web (Chrome) I have to copy individual lines. I am not able to highlight and copy the entire conversation.

  17. ability to approve student posts before they become visible (post moderation)

    I would like the ability to screen and approve posts before they are posted to the whole group in conversations instead of muting a person (who then totally doesn't have the ability to ever post).

  18. allow the owner to delete messages

    giving the team owner full delete/edit privilege will allow for the team to focus on the correct topic and allow for misplaced messages to be deleted by the team owner, also when deleting a message remove the visual display of "This message was deleted to allow the channel to flow better

  20. Deleting chats

    Enable deleting chats that are not needed any longer. It would also be great if the teacher could remove comments or posts from a channel that are irrelevant, nasty or not needed.
