  1. 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.

  3. Filters

    Re video calls: Us young people are used to the beautifying filters of Snapchat and Instagram. Especially when working from home, popularized by COVID-19, it would be nice to have some simple filters for the videos. No, I don’t need to look like a puppy or have a crown, but being able to wear no makeup at home and feel presentable would be clutch!

  11. Integrate Outlook groups and Teams

    When creating an Outlook group it creates similar functionality as creating a team in Teams. But there seams to be no connection between the two. I would like to see my Teams as groups in Outlook and vice versa or combine them.

  12. Create a task in Outlook from an item in Teams

    I use my email inbox as a to-do list. When I get an email of something I need to, I mark it as a task to complete. That way they're all in one place. But if someone posts in Teams with a request for me to do something, look something over, etc., I can't mark that as a "to-do" or a task unless I manually type it into an Outlook task/reminder. Since Teams can integrate with the Outlook calendar anyway, could we have the ability to create a task from an item (chat, file, etc.) in Teams?

  18. Teams on Safari

    G'day Microsoft Teams Team,
    Firstly - well done on the new Teams updates with enhanced assignment and OneNote functionality/Integration. Awesome.

    But... as a school with a MacOSX device environment we are still waiting for Teams to work within Safari. Any eta on when this will happen (other than a vague - 'it's coming')???

    Looking forward to working with my staff team on the change management journey getting our classes set up in the Teams environment.
