  2. Make option to rotate pictures when we look at them after upload. Thanks.

    Usefull stuff. When we use Teams for education for example. My students send me pictures whit their homework. Now i have to download them and then upload them in diferent roatations. The problem is when they use post a picture right away and they dont edit it beforehand. Would be extra usefull if we could rotate pictures in wiew mode. Thanks.

  3. Reporting and analytics tool

    Teams would need a reporting tool to see, for example, the assessment of a pupil's school year view. At the same time, it could even get a graphical view. This would be a really good improvement and a much desired feature of teachers. For further development, this could predict the student's school success. I mean, therefore, learning analytics. Third party payments are already payable. If Microsoft were to make their own, Teams would overwhelm all electronic learning environments at this time. For such, we have a strong demand in Finland. Finland is one of the model of education and we…

  4. Use insights to measure the activity on Class Notebook.

    We have insights installed but it does not currently show us when children access the class notebook. This would help a great deal to see who is accessing the work. We can see they have been onto Teams if they look at files or post but no record of class notebook access.

  6. task dependencies

    Hi there, it would be great if Teams added a task dependency ability to the planner. Task 1 is dependent on completion of task 2 and so forth. Notifications for task 2 non completion will also be sent to task 1 group. Visual connections between the two or in the expanded task choices it is apparent.
    This could be as simple as the ability to also tag another task not just people.

    Thanks!

  7. 'Stream' videos inside

    About 'stream' option. It would be very useful to have acces to stream web page, or at least to all videos classified by groups and channels, in the same 'microsoft teams' app. If so, you wouldn't need to get out from the app to google chrome, safari, … That would be more efficient

  9. I want to filter insights data by tag group

    Rather than filtering all students, or to a specific pupil, I would really like to be able to filter the insights data by the tags I have setup in the team. This would be really useful for sub dividing pupils by class, subject free school meals, additional support needs etc. Please make this happen.

  10. I would like to be able to see which students have viewed videos on our class stream channel.

    We can see if the students have viewed an assignment, but can't tell if they have viewed the linked videos on stream.

  11. Insights

    Show "Viewed" status in downloadable spreadsheet under "Turn-in status". This would allow for filtering of students who have seen the assignment but have not completed it. This is would be useful for tracking homeworking engagement across classes.

  12. sorting students by last name through Insights as a filter option

    It would be nice to be able to filter the students on the Insights page by last name or have the option to. Student rosters are usually formatted in this way and it makes it harder to get to the student information needed when the first name sort is the only option.

  13. Show when a member was last online

    I am trying to figure out which pupils have accessed our class Teams but this would be a lot more useful if you could see a date and a time when that member last logged on.

  15. Analysis and insights

    Insights is good at a classroom level however it would be great to get similar data at a school and trust wide level..
    As a director of digital learning I would like to be able to run insights style analysis via the teams admin console to a far greater depth than the current analysis allows. I would like to be able to be able to see things like how many teachers and which office 365 accounts have set teams up, be able to group them via subject and then look globally at assignments set, hand ins, latest, time spent on…

  16. Thoughts from a School Teacher

    Overall, a solid product. Here is the feedback of a schoolteacher after two weeks of using MS Teams for remote learning:

    Assignments


    1. Please put assignments for ALL teams in one place and (2.) integrate it with the calendar function. My students can, but refuse to click on every team's "assignments" tab to see assignments. While this isn't an issue with younger grades, it's been a rather significant hurdle for my middle schoolers with nine different teachers.


    2. On that note, planner does not communicate with calendar or assignments...I don't understand the function of this product given the inherent lack of integration…

  17. More than 1 question in a quick form

    When you add a quick form to a post we need to be able to add more than just 1 multiple choice question. Look at what Polly does and add the ability to ask multiple questions and different types of questions.

  18. Expanded Insights for Across All Teams

    Insights is great at Team level for teachers, but not so good for Middle or Senior Leaders to view trends across year groups/ subjects etc.
    I would like to see a version of Insights (or some alternative analytics option) that allows specific colleagues to view this data across multiple Teams. Perhaps even a linked Power BI file that draws on that data for the tenancy.

  19. Monitoring Communication Activity within a meeting

    Within the 'Communication Activity' tab, have Insights add analytics for posts, reactions, hands up etc when writing in the sidebar chat of meetings. This is the way our students ask and answer questions in 'live lessons'.Also,if it could monitor how much they have their mics on (rather than on mute) this could give a good indication of comparison of which students contribute more/less than the average.

  20. Audio sharing on both the app and Chrome

    Since the desktop version keeps crashing on Windows 10 I need an alternative. However, neither the app, nor MT on Chrome has audio sharing.
