  3. 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.

  4. hidden self-view

    In Zoom, participants have the option to hide their self-view which makes students less anxious because they forget that others can see them. It's also more like a real classroom where you can see everyone else, but not yourself. It was a game-changer last semester when I showed students how to hide themselves on Zoom. Now that we have to use Teams, not having this feature results in cameras being off.

  8. The ability for teachers or students to set nicknames in certain channels

    My school of work has a Pride group, which has a teams channel as well. The Pride group is a safe space for LGBT+ students and ally’s. It’s so heartwarming to see students who in the classroom/around school may seem shy or down, really come into themselves and not be afraid to have a laugh. There are some students in this group who don’t identify with the gender/name they are assigned at birth, and if it were possible to have a feature where in a specific teams channel, students could have a nickname that would be approved by the channel…

  11. Mute chat notification pop ups while in a meeting

    while in a meeting and people are typing in chat you get a pop up notification which covers up the text box for the chat, this gets very annoying as i'm not able to use the text chat when other people are also typing. i would like there to be a function where you can block/mute/turn off these useless and bothersome pop ups and im sure many people would appreciate if this was fixed

  14. Live caption control for attendees (esp. hard of hearing)

    Hi,

    I am a Year 5 student and I would like to see live captions for all meeting participants, including attendees. My school recently started setting students as attendees to reduce disruptions in the classroom. As a Hard of Hearing student, it was very disappointing to discover that the live captions are not available for attendees. It has severely affected my performance so please, fix the problem. Even if schools have the power to control whether students may access Live Captioning, it would really save a lot of trouble to enable it automatically. Thank you.

  18. Enable posts to be pinned within a Team.

    Allow owners posts to be pinned at the top of the feed so that they do not get lost, an 'important' announcement gets lost when you have 100+ users commenting.

  20. Have an option to not get the Mic Muted notification

    So my workspace has a large amount of noise that it creates, and constantly the "Mic Muted" Notification pops up, and it's a huge distraction for me during class, and it's hard to focus and get my grades up when being distracted constantly (I'm a failing student currently, so this would really help)

    Thanks for reading (if you do)!
