  1. Notify students when Teacher uploads Files

    In Modular or asynchronous classes, Teams does not notify if there are new modules or video lectures uploaded in the files tab in class materials. it would be helpful if it is included as an option in Notifications if the teacher would not inform the students that they had already uploaded one

  2. Improvements on integrations and interactivity

    I made a post yesterday asking if you can integrate an interactive picture through apps. The post can be found in the link bellow:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msteams/forum/msteamstfe-msteamsteams-msteams_mngteam/interactive-picture/c91aa96a-ec69-416b-962d-bc60a1f26daa?messageId=14913c83-44df-4344-8375-2c11daa7d1df
    However i was told that you are unable in the current version of MS-Teams. I made a few tests on the Power Apps platform and while i created what i wanted, when i integrated it in a tab of a Team channel (using the desktop app version, not the browser version), when i pressed on it, i got redirected on my internet browser version of the teams app. This was my problem while…

  3. Teams are appearing very cluttered and it is difficult for my daughter to find what really matters ie. Lessons and homework.

    There needs to be clearer indication of the dates materials have been posted so it is easier to find things.
    Also all the comments children/teachers make do not need to be visible for everyone ie. on general channel but could open if somebody wants to read them.

  5. Dyslexie font

    Dyslexie font would be a wonderful addition to Teams and it would be even better if all files were either uploaded in that font or the program automatically changes the file to dyslexie font!!! if that's not possible maybe we could make a feature where the parents/ students could change the file font to Dyslexie Font. Personally my son would benefit from greatly and so would alot of other people.

  7. improve the MP4 viewer

    improve the MP4 viewer because t's always at the loading then play 2 secs and then it load again or add an option to download it using IDM or any other downloading program because download big files using the browser downloader make it more difficult to do

  8. Making organization of maps easier

    It would be nice if it were possible to move folders around. So, for example in the image I added, ideally I would be able to move all the selecter folders into the Semester 1 folder. Right now organization is a bit hard, as it involves a lot of re-uploading of files, which in my opinion isn't neccesary.
    This would make checking folders a lot easier : )

  9. Change document view width default

    When reading and editing a document online, due to the variety in size of screens, it would be good if the document would open in a FIT TO WIDTH size.
    It would also be good if authors can change:
    1) the default view of a specific document for all users.
    2) the default view of all document for the user.

  12. Moving Folders into other Folders

    We require the facility to move existing folders into other folders (not just individual files). This would help with organisation of our Team drive.

  16. Need support for .MOV files in the mobile App.

    Need support for .MOV files in the mobile apps. It is really frustrating particularly as we are all home schooling and teachers are uploading videos in .MOV format as a lot of teachers are using iOS where all videos are recorded in .MOV format.

  18. It would be useful to know what data would be required before clicking on a file.

    For those students who have limited data, it will be helpful for them to know upfront how much data would be required to view each file, so that they can plan/prioritise which files to choose to work on.
