  1. Edit history for posts

    Hello,

    I'd have more ideas for improvements. Perhaps I can find someone here who would welcome these new functions as well.

    I would like to see the edit history of the message that the author has edited. If the teacher on the team publishes a report, I can read it, that's logical. However, if they modify this report, for example, before I can read it, I would like to know what was in the original report. Often I don't even notice what adjustment has been made here, sometimes it's obvious at first sight, anyway I find this function very useful.

  2. Be able to jump to specific dates within private chats

    I think you should be able to access a specific date in a private message in an efficient manner like how you can cntrl+f/command+f to find a specific message. For example, if it were March 15th, and I wanted to go to a specific date when messages were sent to review what was said, but I did not have time to scroll up through tons of messages, I could go cntrl+d and enter a date with perhaps a drop-down calendar or entering a data in the month/day/year format.

  3. Enable Teacher Monitored Chat Between Students

    My idea is that students should be able to chat with each other privately, as a DM. The students could also create groups with up to 4 people. Teachers would of course be able to monitor these DMs to make sure everyone is on task, it would be silly if the teachers didn't have that ability. This would make it so students can have a better learning experience during virtual classes and can actually talk to people. School isn't just about learning. If there's no enjoyment that comes with learning, kids will start failing.

  6. Make the conversation notifications offer a separate window

    When working on a document or marking an assignment, I sometimes get message notifications that I want to read fully, reply to or keep an eye on, even if I don't plan on stopping what I am doing.

    It would be great if a button on that notification allowed us to open that conversation in a popup window instead of sending us straight to the conversations section.

  7. blocking other users

    the option to block other users to prevent them from messaging you further is in the present day a feature that is standardized, that should also count for Microsoft teams. for example people are getting messaged/bullied/harassed/ stalked with no way of blocking them the only thing you can do about is hide or mute the chats but either way you still get the notification once you start the app.

    this is a feature that is needed by a lot of people who are getting harassed by others that are in the same school network for example. it is very unprofessional…

  8. read status

    It'd be really great to add the msg read icon on the recent chats list and for group chats show how many ppl read it in the recent list and for the group message add the read icon to the message stream and show how many group members have read it without going into the message menu.

  9. allow for private messages in chat. I don't need everyone to see the message sometimes

    Some messages are only for one person in the meeting. Private chats would be good to have

  13. Letting teachers message students directly

    If teachers need to speak with a student privately they can message them or call them into other channels that make it easier for calling direct students.

  14. It would be very useful if you could add a option to "delete the chat" in teams chat rather than "Hide chat "

    It will ensure more privacy for people if we could delete the whole chat instead of only "hiding" the chat. Hope you consider this suggestion :-)

  16. Make it possible to rotate images/photos

    When someone sends you a photo/image, you cannot automatically rotate the image to view it but instead need to download it and use a different application to rotate the image.

    It would be nice to be able to rotate it right in TEAMS!
