  1. Multi-tenant please!

    So many people have multiple jobs where both jobs are now on Teams, especially with COVID-19 and WFH. I love using Teams for one job, but with two jobs it's really hard.

    I realise that adapting it for multi-tenant will take some time, so how about a quick fix to allow multiple instances of the app to run simultaneously?

    I can run two instances of most apps on MacOS, but Teams doesn't seem to like it. A patch to remove this limitation might be fast way to enable lots of us multi-job WFH people to be more productive.

  2. Have Shifts reflect on Personal Outlook Calendar

  3. Tasks in Teams

    I have a problem with Teams, how it provides feedback of Information; that there will always be a green tick that misleads my students to believe that the task is approved. But its not! Whether I mark the task 100% or 0% correct, it becomes a green check mark as a marker, as it is when its aproved. I want a better feedback for unsuccessful submissions. Is it possible to change this highly misleading feedback?

  4. MacOS notifications?

    Please could you implement notifications at the OS level on Mac? Then the app will respect system-wide settings and I won't miss most notifications.

  6. Enable applying policies to groups

    When Teams was administered within settings, it was simple to control by licence type. Now that Teams admin has moved to its own admin centre, the ability to apply policy to a group is gone and the only option is to apply to individuals. This is too onerous. Permissions for groups is the cornerstone of security so why remove that option for Teams. Please provide a group option for applying policies.

  7. Group students in classes so when they send a message, we can see what class they are from

    I have over 100 students a day. I have met them once face to face. It is VERY hard to remember which student is from which class when they send a message. Can we please have a way to group them? Even a color coded icon would work. Anything to help us stop saying "what class are you in?"

  12. Integrate To-Do into Teams

    It would be great if To-Do could be integrated between Teams and Outlook so you can have a cohesive list of Tasks in one place across multiple different working Teams

  13. For gosh sake, make it possible for Mac users to share sound from the computer/Youtube/whatever source!

    Mac users can't share sounds from the computer. Voice works fine, but I need to play sound files for music class, Come on, this cannot be a difficult fix!

  16. Shifts Clock on Desktop

    The time clock function on Shifts is only functional for mobile devices. We cannot ask our employees to use their personal phones or data in order to clock in/out. Additionally, this also assumes the privilege that front line employees have a smart phone with app capabilities. Can we please have the clock in/out function be workable for a desktop PC?

  17. Would it be possible to have a Lock Mode whenever you have a quiz?

    During remote learning, we use online tools to create and facilitate exams. In my case I use MS Forms for my formative and summative assessments. To avoid plagiarism and opening of other tabs (like google) when taking an exam, I think it would help that there is a LOCK MODE in MS Teams to avoid students from opening tabs or other channels.

  18. Allow users to login from multiple accounts

    It would be really helpful if you enabled us to add multiple accounts on pc. I know this feature already exists on mobile and it would be really helpful if you did this on pc too. This is because multiple logins often ask for codes to ensure that the account is safe and then it gets really hectic.
    Thanking you in anticipation
