  1. User Pronouns

    Many of my classmates either have androgynous names or use pronouns that others might not assume (they/them). For non-binary and transgender classmates, it's hard to know how to refer to them. In many cases, pronouns aren't on teachers or students minds', so students accidentally get misgendered. Having pronouns next to names (maybe optional) would be an easy quick-hand way of communicating the best way to refer to your peers.

  2. Track student attendance within Teams

  3. LTI Integration

    With Teams replacing Class Notebook, there is a focus to use this in Education. If Teams worked with LTI, it would allow Learning Management Systems such as Moodle and Canvas to assign users to a Team through direct single sign on. This creates a more seamless experience for students and decreases the amount of admin needed to get them in.

    Further to this, each group inside an LMS could be given a separate team or private channel in Teams to Collaborate. This would be massively beneficial for Education.

    great news!  ·  Justin Chando responded

    Thanks to all of your feedback and thanks to our partners and their tireless efforts, we’ve made it possible for you to now set up a Microsoft Teams meeting for your online classroom directly from within your learning management system (LMS).

    This new capability allows you to quickly enable remote learning for your students and faculty by bringing the power of Teams directly into your LMS. We already have integrations launched across the world’s top LMSs; Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace, Schoology, and itsLearning!

    Learn more about these new integrations and get started today here; https://educationblog.microsoft.com/en-us/2020/03/microsoft-teams-meeting-creation-now-available-in-canvas-blackboard-schoology-brightspace-and-itslearning/

    The best part is this is only the beginning because as Teams evolves, we’ll continue to improve our LMS integrations as well. Thank you!

    Unfortunately I need to switch this back to Under Review. The feature team is investigating how best this could be implemented.

  5. Add paste image, text box, drag and drop, zoom in or out to the Whiteboard in Teams

    The Whiteboard would be more useful with the ability to: 1) paste an image or anything onto the whiteboard. 2) insert a text box, 3) move what's on the whiteboard to a different area on the whiteboard, 4) zoom in or out

  11. Create quick class polls in MS Teams

    In the conversations area we need the ability to add a quick question for formative assessment purposes. The different types needed would be: multiple choice, text and ticktboox. The instant feedback to the teacher can be used to judge how the class, or individuals, are progressing with the lesson.

  13. "Detect Fragments and Run-On Sentences" feature in Word 2016

    Previous versions of Word detected fragments and run-on sentences, but Word 2016 does not. This is especially problematic because these are two of the most common writing errors students make; many students relied on this feature to improve their writing
    Please vote to have this feature added to Word 2016.

  15. Compile all student data in one section for all classes

    I'm a special education teacher and it would be great to see what students on my caseload are doing in other classes. I would like to have a caseload roster of students and when I click on their name, it gives me "snapshot" of all their work/progress/activity/etc in all their classes on Teams. Currently I would have to access to each individual class and check their work one by one, but this way would be so much more efficient.

  17. Reject option of removing student to opponent student from meeting.

    Some students are removing the opponent student from the class meeting it's better to reject the option or make the student name display on screen who is removing the opponent student. Make an setting that only an organiser can remove the student from meeting

  20. Sound Notifications - Need volume adjustment

    The current sound notification is very muted and does not make an audible sound unless computer is at full volume (which then impacts other application sound). Can you set a louder notification sound for chat/mentions/notifications? Or let this be adjustable/customizable?
