  1. mute the chat for EVERY ONE

    Some one, maybe only presenters and organizers can press something in the chat tab ,y'know, where you mute the chat, JUST FOR YOURSELF. Maybe there should be another option just for presenters and meeting organizers to mute the whole chat for everybody, to help with people who aren't tech-savvy but hate the annoying notifications.

  2. Can you give us access to send private messages in chats to specific students?

    When I need to speak to students about their private grade, I have to ask them to go to another site. This is not convenient . I want students to be able to send me a private question. I also want to reciprocate with out breaking all FERPA laws

  3. Send chats to multiple teachers on a Team at the same time

    If a classroom as a consultant teacher or a coteacher, students need to be able to send a chat to both teachers at the same time. As a consultant teacher, I am not able to see if my students need my help if they have messaged the general education teacher instead of myself. If they message me, then the general education teacher is not able to see that they need help.

    ALL teachers associated with a classroom need to be able to access and answer the chats for students in the classroom, or at the very least, that functionality should…

  4. why does leaving a call automatically change your status from "busy" or "do not disturb" to available?

    I'm always having to switch back to "do not disturb" after every call I leave so I don't get notifications that block what I'm doing. Can you please make the status static? (does not change when you leave call)

  6. add a voice note feature in chat

    Sometimes a call can be too much but writing the answer to a question can take too long. Being able to leave a voice note feature in the chat, will help to enable discussion but without having to schedule a call

  7. You should have a feature that will let you block someone if they are being rude

    adding this feature will let students communicate better and block people who distract him

  11. it would be great if students could keep their chats and their chats would be untakeable and they could chat in private

    if students could be talking to each other in private they would use it for anything including school as long as it wasn't too inappropriate and they could only text like school and dating things

  16. Can we please have a function that prevents students from "replying" to others in chat.

    I have muted everyone in the teams. Now they students have found a way to keep chatting by replying to someone's message, then continue their conversations or start a new one. This is a HUGE inconvenience as a teacher trying to keep a safe and respectful environment.

  18. Bring the entire chat back

    I use to be able to type something in the search bar and click on an old conversation and it will be put the entire conversation which was helpful for training purposes. Now it just pulls up that section (or paragraph) only instead of the entire thread pertaining to the conversation. Can we please bring that back?
