  1. 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

  2. Add paste image, text box, drag and drop, zoom in or out to the Whiteboard in Teams

    The Whiteboard would be more useful with the ability to: 1) paste an image or anything onto the whiteboard. 2) insert a text box, 3) move what's on the whiteboard to a different area on the whiteboard, 4) zoom in or out

  3. Ability to change student profile images to one logo through admin console

    To give you a bit of background on this firstly, We would like the ability to be able to have separate polices for photo image usage for Students and Staff, allowing staff to be able to change their profile image, and students not able to. What we wanted to do was bulk send out a default school photo profile logo for our students, and lock it down so they couldn't change it.

    This feature would be very useful as many students are uploading inappropriate pictures for their profile image photo.

    Thanks
    Brian

  4. 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.

  6. show a raised hand while sharing screen

    The raised hand idea is great but the teacher cannot see the raised hand when he/she is sharing the screen. That would be a good feature

  10. Multiple account signin

    There should be an option for multiple account signin in the desktop version of this app, this feature is already there in the mobile version. This feature is really helpful when two or more people have to use the app with different accounts, saving the time and effort to sign out and signin with password and id repetitively

  12. Teams owners deleting their Teams in error

    Please remove the ability of Teams Owners being able to delete Teams! In an educational environment, this is creating havoc. Instead, have a new Creator permission so that unless they created that Team, they cannot delete it. That ability should be reserved for the person who created the Team and the Administrators.

    We have restricted Team creation to a very select few more "responsible" staff members!

  13. Hand over organizer role to create break out rooms

    We are running online programs (executive education) via Teams. Before the new break out function got installed, we used seperate Teams and channels to work in subgroups. Since you announced the new feature, we would like keep it easy and only set up meeting invites with a link. Is there the opportunity to hand over the organizer role, or at least add a co-host in case the meeting organizer is dropping out/ cannot attend? If I got it right, so far only the organizer of a meeting can set up break out rooms.

    If its not possible until now -…

  14. Voting in Teams

    I would like to propose "voting model" in Teams. Sometimes team need to vote, even secret ballot. We use third party aplications - but to have voting possibility in Teams would be better.

  16. GDPR Violation

    During the class, if a student hovers the mouse on another participant, he can see his mobile number. This against GDPR and it should not be presented over there. Please help me and guide me on how to stop this.

  20. "Who is available now?"

    As a student, sometimes I need to find a teacher who is online at that time to answer a question or something of the sort, or find another student to work on an assignment together. If there was a feature that let you view all of the people in your organization who have their status set to available, (maybe even filtered by relevance to you?), lots of time spent searching would be saved.
