  2. Folder 'assignments' for students

    It would be great for students to have a folder 'assignments' where all the assignments from different subjects (with deadlines) would be placed. It would be easier to organise work.

  3. Be able to have the recording sessions in a chronological way, because some times the recordings get lose when you are looking for it.

    You can lose the recorded class in the plataform when you are looking fot it and it is really anoying because when you miss a class and then you look if someone record it, it is just not there, but really it was just hidden in the reply's of the chat.

  5. Enable a feature whereby children are not allowed to delete assignment or videos uploaded by the teachers

    It seems that children are accidentally deleting the class material, videos etc loaded on Teams by the teachers. Perhaps a function can be added whereby only teachers can delete videos or a function where deleting videos or material can be disabled by the parents to ensure that the work does not get lost.

  6. Class Document Library

    The class notebook within OneNote is a useful idea, and I would like to see something similar to automatically configure permissions for a document library.

    In other words, there would be folders that are editable by both teachers and students (already exists), folders that are editable by teachers and viewable by students (already exists but it is kind of a hack because it does not actually reside within the Team file share and does not sync along with it), folders that are editable by teachers and not viewable by students, and personal folders for each student that the teacher can…

  7. Teacher Request that for video uploaded assign some owner permissions like 1) View only 2) Can not download or download for confidentiality

    URGENT AND IMPORTANT

    Being Professor, I Request that Teams Microsoft platform should assign some owner permissions like 1) View only 2) Can not download or download for uploading TEACHING VIDEO/DOCUMENTS for confidentiality of every video/documents uploaded.

    This is required to stop illegal transmission of video among others except teams members. Such permission should be asked by software every time before uploading any type of documents or video file by owner. This is specially helpful for confidentiality TEACHING VIDEO file uploaded among team members.

    Please take this seriously and add such permission features in Teams Microsoft software specially at the earliest…

  8. Jumping Files

    When in files and going back, it jumps back to the start or to another folder. Not just back a page.

  12. Allow us to delete items (files) in the share screen for general meetings.

    Allow us to delete the numerous files listed in the share screen for general meeting (I'm not referring to chats).

  14. Video uploading on teams

    I would love it if in future we were able to lock uploaded video files so that students could access them at their leisure but not have the option to download them.

  16. Handy App für Android verbessern

    Auf dem Handy werden nicht alle Dateien und Aufgaben angezeigt. Viele bekommen nicht mit, dass es Aufgaben gab. Ich würde mir wünschen, dass alle Aufbaben und Dateien auch über das Handy (Android) zu erreichen wären, sodass alle Schüler einen Zugriff auf diese haben.

  18. Ensure that animations still work when presenting in the online application.

    I made a PPT with interactive features (e.g., if students say the wrong option and the presenter clicks on it, the box turns red. If they click on the right option, it turns green.) However, this interactivity only works properly if I open the desktop version of PPT. I find this annoying, since I want to be able to present in the online application, which has a better writing and erasing feature during live presentations.

  19. Favorites Bar

    It would be helpful if users could have a favorites feature added. We use Teams for online classes and the teachers have created several groups that represent classes. Some "classes" have our main folders/files, but navigating them each time is very time consuming. If we could access a folder quickly via a favorites bar, it would help us to utilize our time in class more efficiently.

  20. Hey,

    Hey,

    I suggest you add the "share option" of files in a team's channel to another team's channel.

    e.g: share files of channel titled "activities" in team-1, to channel titled "activities" in team-2. thus, we avoid uploading them again.

    thanks
