  3. Simple read-only option for files and folders.

    Allow an option in the 3-dot menu of files and folders to make it Read Only. Going into Sharepoint or having to put every file into the general channel is not compatible with running classes in different channels.

  4. There should be a feature when we are trying to send the fill test, when we need to confirme that we want to submit the test.

    Today I had an exam and i pressed by mistake the submit button. There should be a confirmation before sending it!

  6. Integration of existing MS products

    Keep consistency for Word, Excel etc. Editing options are frustrating if using the Teams platform. Launching into desktop mode can be inconvenient and time consuming whilst making minor amendments before delivering content.

  7. Ability to choose when a file becomes available

    A feature I would like to see in the future, is the ability to choose when a file becomes available for my students. In that way I can give them an assignment and provide them with the solutions to the problems, but only after the assignment is finished

  10. Whole Class Bookmarks - One Quick Click

    I need my students to be able to access a variety of websites.
    Exactly like the “Files” Feature, but instead of Files, where they then have to open a document and then click on a hyperlink, make it just a “Bookmark” tab where students can click on links, directly.
    I know I can make my own Bookmarks and access my own saved messages, but I would like for all of my students to also have the same messages saved, and the way that it is set up now is too much navigation for younger students.
    Please allow for Team Specific…

  12. Make a "go back funktion" that takes you back to the previously page you was on. Not like the one on teams that takes you way back.

    When you enter a folder, then another folder, then another folder and then click "back" on teams, it takes you to posts. I didn't ask to get to posts, if i wanted posts i would have clicked posts. I want to get back to the folder that i was in before i pressed on the one that i am in right now.

    Resume:
    Folder 1 --> Folder 2 --> Folder 3 --> "press back" --> posts = not what i asked for.

    Folder 1 --> Folder 2 --> Folder 3 --> "press back" --> Folder 2 = Exactly what i…

  14. Speed up/Slow down for your video player

    Sometimes my teacher posts video lessons. She doesn't edit them, and the lessons are too slow. The files are a little wonky, and usually are around 1 or 2 GB. I would find it helpful if I could watch the video in x1.5 or x2 speed. Other students may find the teacher's videos to be too slow, so a x0.5 or x.75 speed would be good for them as well.

  15. Turn of reply function under assignment to stop kids from chatting

    Every time a make an assignment - kids reply and chat to each other. It would be useful as a teacher if I could have the option to disable this

  16. Allow downloads to go to a certain folder or location

    You can change the download location for either a certain class or everything. You could have a "School" folder or a "Science" folder that your downloads would automatically go.

  18. You should be able to drag emails from Outlook to Teams.

    Dragging emails from Outlook to Teams. The workaround is dragging from email to a folder and then from the folder to Teams. That's super clunky.

  19. Be able to search files uploaded in a team

    Sometimes I might not now where a certain file is, so it would be useful to be able to search the name instead of going through each file - especially as it once you open a file, if you close it, it takes you back to the first 'homepage' of files instead of the folder you recently opened.
