  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Screen share and see students at the same time

    Is it possible to share your screen and see the students at the same time? Is there any way that the students could be thumbnails across the bottom of the screen?

  11. Additional user type in team for a class

    I have created a team for a class that I am teaching. It will be very useful to enrol some users as TAs (teaching assistants). I would like to give these users privileges to grade and edit the assignment scores but will prefer that privileges for creating or deleting an assignment or editing the team settings to be with the owner. Several instructors in my university also face the same situation.

  13. meeting attendance should allow us to change how names show up (to be last, first name )

    To allow us teachers to choice which way the names show up. Most of them show up as first , last name and for when we do attendance it goes by last name , first name so we should be able to pick the way the attendance names show up on the downloaded copy instead of having to take time to change the order

  15. 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.

  18. Volume changer

    I want to be able to change the volume of induvidial people. Example if someone has a loud microphone, I can lower the volume of that person and only that person, rather than the entire call

  19. Are You Still There

    When I am working on schoolwork i like to switch back and forth between pages but sometimes I can't because there is an "are you still there" box that causes me to reload the page which takes more time and is annoying.
