  1. Often when I am in a call I get push notifications from the chat that I am already viewing on screen. This is very annoying and distracting.

  5. After adding a team, auto create an e-mail group based on the team's membership

    If you want to e-mail everyone in the team, you have to enter each member individually. It would be great if there was an auto create of an e-mail group of the whole team when creating a new team.

  6. So today during my math class, my math teacher dissabled the private chats.

    So basically today during my class, my teacher disabled the private chats. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with this, but today I do. I have very close friends on teams that got ABSOLUTELY NO notice that I couldn't talk to them. I understand how many people get distracted and off task because of teams chatting, but is there any way that could still chat but it wouldn't be so disctracting ONLY if I'm in class, otherwise I could get as many chats as I want lol :). Thank you and I do hope that you can consider this option.

  8. Banner notifications are blocking chat typing and send functions - please fix

    When banner notifications pop up, they block whatever is being typed in chat, etc. as well as the Send button. I need these notifications, but could you please have an option for where on the screen they're located (or have them moved somewhere more practical)? E.g. lower-left corner. Having them stack more tightly would also be really helpful...these things are overwhelming. Is there a way to dismiss all of them at once? Thanks!

  10. I would like that they switch off messages for the students

    That when there are lessons or calls they switch off the messages but only put it on for the teachers because it is distracting for some of the students

  18. when a user messages you, mention which common team/ teams they are from.

    I am a teacher and I have many teams with many students, it'd be nice if every student messaged me, I know which team or class he/she is from.

  20. Attaching users, teams, channels or other shared resources in chat messages

    When chatting trough Teams it would be useful to reference a shared resource (a user that all participants can contact, a channel that all belong to) in a way that allows direct interaction with said resource (message a user that someone referenced, accessing a specific channel without having to search for it manually).
