  1. Enable Viewing Statistics for Posts

    I would love a way to see statistics/views on a post, even if students/staff members haven't responded to it or commented on it. Maybe just a general number of views, like on YouTube, Sway, or even OneDrive docs now.

  4. Add a change/Roulette button

    I teach physical education to my special needs studentes with TEAMS. A lot of jumping in front of the webcam... 😜About 55 studentes attend the meeting. I can only view 25 studentes at once. I mute all the students so they can hear me and the music and don't disturb the class.

    Is it possible to add a button(change or roulette) so that it is possible to change the students that are vissible for me? Once 25 studentes are vissible it won't change. By clicking the button, automaticly 25 different students apear on my screen. This Will make it easier…

  6. Keep an announcement scrolling at the bottom

    Sometimes (when I am absent) I like to post an announcement for my students there will be no meetings for the day. It would be nice to have that announcement scroll at the bottom of the posts for like a day so all my students can see it. They like to post acknowledgements and that makes the post run up in the que. Also, when you are having a meeting, it should stay on the bottom until you are done as well.

  9. Make profile pictures have gifs!

    I really like the idea of having gifs as profile pictures and i think it would be a nice little feature. I like making my own ones too.

  10. Love the breakout rooms, but can we dupiicate access?

    We have co-taught classes in several different departments, but Teams allows only a single teacher (the one who "calls the meeting") to start breakout rooms, populate them, and visit them. Other teachers have no access to those rooms. Could we change this so that anyone with, say, presenter status, can also have breakout-room status?

  12. Add a function to rotate the webcam image in camera settings

    Using a logitech streamcam I can't rotate the image in Teams unless I rotate the camera itself, I Want a portrait not lanscape view with my camera. There needs to be a function to allow image rotation like other video conferencing applications.
    I've looked through doxens of posts with the same issues, some 2+ years ago. Just add an option to rotate camera image.

  14. Update the Linux version regularly

    The Linux version is wonderful and has been a life-saver. However, the Linux version lags so far behind the Windows/Mac versions. People are using features and settings that have been standard for months now that still aren't present in Linux version. Please update regularly.

  18. The ability to allow a guest to become an owner

    As a College Teams account and due to Covid, for our Apprenticeships and employer engagement that goes with that we are using Teams. However, as the employer appears as a 'guest' within this Teams group they cannot assign projects for students or use many of the features that are beneficial and necessary for virtual based apprenticeships.
    The employers in question have Microsoft Teams for their businesses, therefore I should be allowed to delegate them control.

  20. closed caption during live meetings

    Closed captions would be extremely useful for hosted live events in Microsoft teams. This feature could be accessible to the viewer under the The playback and quality features are helpful, but could use the settings tab. The addition of closed caption here acknowledges the neurodiversity of Teams viewers and assists with multi-tasking on the same device (especially when occupying a space where speaker audio is not appropriate). I look forward to this adoption, as well as many others listed here soon.
