  1. We need an "enable original sound" option.

    Sustained sound gets cancelled out as a background sound. Extended ranges of our instruments also gets cancelled out. Music teachers need these sounds, so we need an option to disable the microphone's normal settings that are written to focus the on the speaking voice.

  3. I hope the create a Take a Test link in Microsoft Education Center will become available again

    I hope the create a "Take a Test link" in Microsoft Education Center will become available again because it prevents students from opening another browser to open or access other apps or their LMS notes, browser lockdown is a must when taking an online exam. Thank you!

  5. Share a second camera to show worksheets full screen as a document camera

    Teachers use document cameras to teach. Having this option will improve teaching as students can see what you are writing on a worksheet.

  8. Refresh Button

    Refresh Button for the whole platform. The platform doesn't immediately refresh when new chat or post appears. For instance, I have posted in a team discussion on my phone but then when I return to my desktop application, I have to close out teams for the post to appear.

  12. sub-channel meeting scheduling and notifications

    I've set up an Advising Team. This means that I have a general chat and I have one-one channels with students (for privacy). I would like to be able to schedule future meetings in the sub-channels (right now I can only "meet now"). I would also like to receive an email notification whenever a student posts something in their sub-channel since they are used infrequently. It would also be nice if I could schedule a meeting with everyone in the team without having to add everyone's name and/or when I am scheduling a meeting within a team, have those team…

  13. Create our own backgrounds

    It would be good for students to be able to create their own backgrounds - Still images or videos that they could perform in front of.

  14. Adding Hotkeys

    Maybe Adding Hotkeys like "M" to mute the mic or like "V" to turn on video chat or share screens would be good additions

  15. Voice filter

    Develop a voice filter so that we only hear the voice from other participants and not all other kind of noises.

  17. I would like for there to be a document camera option the same way you can screen share..

    Currently you can only use a document camera instead of your video image which makes it difficult for people to see when the screen is split among so many people. It would be nice to be able to show something from a document camera or external camera the same way you can share your screen. The other alternative would be if the presenter and other owners have the capability of making their image the whole screen at certain times.

  18. Blocking function on teams

    I think that you should be able to block people on teams. I understand that it is a forum that’s only used in work/school contexts, but I still think that it’s necessary to block some people. I don’t want to see every message some people writes in public school chats, it affects my school performance. Maybe you should not be able to block school staff, but at least other students.

  19. Option to stop Microsoft Teams from controlling your microphone volume.

    Whenever you get into a call, Teams takes control of your microphone volume dynamically which is super annoying to a point where the quality of the call becomes unbearable. There should be an option to disable teams for doing that. Even with Exclusive Mode turned off in windows for the microphone, it still does it. Most people just want their microphone static.
