    WE should be able to launch a Poll on the main screen while the meeting is going on. Participants should be able to answer on real time basis and we should be able to see the responses and percentages.

  6. Channel notifications for multiple channel posts

    Currently, when you use the @ mention feature to mention a channel and post the same message across multiple teams with the identical channel name, the only team which receives the notification is the team in which the post is created. It would be ideal if all Teams received the notification. That way students are notified of the post and teachers don't have to copy and paste the same message to all Teams so students receive the notification.

  8. Disable "See More" feature on Posts

    I wish we could disable the "see more" feature on posts. When I post something longer, students must click "see more" to read the entire post. What seems simple for most must not be for the students. I have lots of kids missing things because they don't click "see more" to read the entire post.

  10. Make everyone an attendee except for the organizer

    I am really frustrated with a tool on Microsoft teams. When we join a call with our teachers, we all join as presenters and since people like playing pranks, they make other attendees keep muting people and removing people constantly as well. This is a really bad feature on teams I must say as it is really unfair if people do this. That's why what I suggest is that during school meetings, everyone except for the organizer should be made attendee so everyone can learn without any hindrances. Also everyone but the organizer should have the rights to kick someone…

  12. Bulk remove team members

    I'd really like to be able to remove a lot of team members all at once, like for when kids change classes at semester or at the beginning of the year. Clicking remove one by one 200 times is too time consuming, and I'd rather not have to make entirely new teams each semester.

  13. Make able to set a username or set a name for a profile

    It is really vexing not to know which user I'm talking to or having to ask the name everytime in a meeting with more than 15 persons. Accounts should be able to have a name or username that isn't the email, which makes sense in any meeting platform or social media these days. Also there's no reason why there isn't a place to complain or send feedback directly on an error or bug. Why would my school email appear in the email section and my personal email which I didn't place there would appear below my photo and I'm not…

  14. Filter users in "Team admin center" using "Office365 admin center" custom filters (in order to edit policy to selected group of users)

    It would be useful to filter users in Team admin center users' list using office365 custom filters.

    It would also be useful to filter by
    - the team they belong to
    - their contact information (the general ones already present in the general Office365 Admin interface)
    - the custom filters already defined in Office365 Admin center

    For instance, I need to edit policy for all students and then also for all teachers.
    In Office365 Admin center I can filter and select only students (or only teacher) using their "profile info/contact information" and custom filter.

    But I can't do the same…

  15. Hide responses to discussion posts until after student has written response

    I would like for the students to not see others' discussion posts until AFTER they have posted. Once they have replied, they should be able to read the other students' posts, but not before. Otherwise, they simply think the first poster's answer is correct and plagiarize that answer.

  17. Downloads shouldnt fail

    The downloads should never get cancelled due to lost connectivity (or slow internet).
    They may get paused but should continue the download process automatically when the internet is back.

    Also, the progress of the downloads should be displayed.

  18. Chat

    subject: CHAT
    There is no category above for chat, so I chose "other".
    I have 60 students in 2 different teams. They send me chats all the time. Is there a way to show the team they belong to once I click on their chat?
    I don't know who is who and to which class or team the belong to!
    Thank you

  20. ADD a feature in Teams that allows you delete chats, teams, and recent history. Teams SUCKS without it

    I have multiple OLD teams that I cannot delete or clear history. This is extremely inconvenient for trying to find/respond to current teams, files, chats, etc.

    Makes me skeptical of why you won't allow me to delete this information. What is Microsoft doing with it?

    I want to delete this stuff because I JUST DON'T TRUST MICROSOFT with any of my information.
