  2. Planner: Assign check list items to individual assignee's in tasks

    When creating a new task within Planner it would be nice to assign specific checklist items to individual assignee's that have also been assigned to the specific task.

  4. Add ability to screenshot in chat.

    I think it would be very useful to add the ability to capture a screenshot right in a chat. Cisco Jabber has this feature and it's very handy.

  12. Teacher mode version in JOIN meeting now option.

    The Teams program needs a teacher mode. In JOIN meeting now, the immediate requirements are to prevent students from deleting other class members, muting the teacher while they are teaching and having a log of activity to identify any student doing the wrong thing.

  13. translate meeting captions, translate documents opened within teams, translate a complete chatl.

    the only thing I can get immersive reader option is on a single chat/post box. it would be nice to have the whole chat or at least continue through the chat from wherever you began. I read that it is supposed to work in docs and powerpoint but I cannot figure out how to do it. I love the caption option for live meetings, if this could be translated, in real tme. it would be so awesome for parent and sped ard meetings.

  14. Clean up the General channel for students by not logging EVERY single change I make to the channel. They don't need that record.

    Clean up the General channel for students by not logging EVERY single change I make to the channel. They don't need that record. It would be nice if I could hide the logs so my channel isn't cluttered either.

  15. Move "like" notifications for chat from activity to chat

    right now if somebody "likes" your message in chat it shows up as a notification in the activity instead of part of the chat. doesn't really make sense.

  16. Manage Team Analytics improved date ranges

    Under manage team you are able to see an analytics tab. It would be beneficial for this to have a significantly increased date range to choose from, and also the ability to select between date ranges. This is a really helpful feature.

  17. Allow teachers to enable a 'student view' for testing and demo purposes

    Allow teachers to 'View from student point of view' in Teams to enable teachers to easily test a Team from a students point of view and also demo to students with a view that is familiar to them, instead of demoing to students with your own teacher view which is slightly different.

  18. the teams status is broken

    sometimes the status of people just randomly change from in a meeting to offline or available to in a call or meeting so teachers sometimes mark students absent because of this

  19. Enable App use in Private Channels

    When within private channels, many useful apps are disabled (Praise, Forms, Polls, Reflect) which would be very beneficial for use with small group instruction. I would love if these apps would be enabled for use when in a private channel, just as they are available in the public channels.

  20. Please would you add a seating plan designer to Teams?

    Please could you add a seating plan layout designer to Teams? It would be brilliant addition to Teams if we could combine class layouts / seating plans with our existing Teams classes.

    It would be helpful if it could also link in with programs like SIMS which include photos, SEND info etc.
