  2. 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.

  3. Profile Photo

    It would be really cool if I could upload a profile photo instead of getting a message saying "There was a problem saving the photo. Please try again."
    :)

  5. Explore Discord for improvements.

  6. Monthly attendance report automatically marked according to the duration attended each day

    School teachers face a lot of difficulty in marking attendance for students. Some students drop in or out in between the class. Even though the attendance report lets us know about it, it is very laborious job to identify it after every class.

    There should be a feature in which the monthly attendance report should be generated following points mentioned below: -


    1. There should be a list of all the members in the the class (in the team) which will come out in an excel/ csv file in row A and the following rows will have dates for the entire…

  7. Presenter view

    As the presenter, I would like to see the participants video along the bottom of the screen (same view that the participants have). Also, can not see hands raised as the presenter.

  8. 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.

  9. Email Tab

    It would be helpful to have an email tab (similar to the calendar or chat tabs) so we would not have to toggle between Teams and Outlook.

  10. Insights missed assignments interface

    The new insights shows you missed assignments. But it does not show you which student you missed and you can't go to them directly from that page. Please link assignments into the new missed assignments category of insights.

  12. Covid - 19

    British Education System
    Covid-19
    As a school we are trying to respond to the current and future impact that this virus is having on our daily operations. As we move closer to the examinations season, this situation could have a drastic impact on our young people’s future.

    At the moment, we are making use of Teams and OneNote to teach pupils who are self-isolating because of recent travel. Dealing with small numbers of pupils’ needs is relatively simple, but what we might well see soon is enforced school closures. I can see that Teams and OneNote will allow us to…

  15. Insights tab should record time spent on phone apps as well as the desktop app

    We’ve been using Insights to gather attendance data, but many of our kids use Teams on their phones. The Insights tab doesn’t display if students were in Teams on their phones, so Insights is giving us an incomplete picture of our attendance.
    Please let Insights record user time on the phone apps, too.

  17. Inserir a rede social Dialeticos, como alternativa para a promoção de debates com os estudantes.

    Sou professor no Estado do Mato Grosso, Brasil. Estamos usando a plataforma teams e gostaria de disponibilizar junto com a plataforma a rede social Dialeticos.

    A rede social Dialeticos (de minha autoria) foi criada no intuito de promover uma educação dialética para a era das relações virtuais. Com a advento da internet, se faz necessário uma educação que pratique os princípios da dialética, a saber, a busca das contradições do discurso e a escuta do contraditório. A rede usa um modelo de intereção que privilegia o debate, tendo o professor como mediador para que o raciocínio se desenvolva.

  18. Integrate Excel with Teams for Attendance

    Being a student our first 10 mins get wasted in attendance as faculty has to call out all names and mark our attendance. India we have 100 students in one session, so its too hectic.

    Its gonna be great, if Teams team can integrate, Excel with it and can fetch data for all people who have joined the meeting. If possible fetch as per present date and time, Its gonna be helpful for saving time and increase efficiency.

  20. Hello!! we would like to see many students/participants on either side of the screen while Screen sharing so as to have better control.

    We teachers have to do recapitulation and take short test to check the understanding of the lesson. It will be better if the questions asked by the teacher gets printed on the screen.
