  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  6. Fix “All Time” to show more than the past 30 days

    Activity data is great but opening “all time” or custom RANGE would be immensely helpful at end of term reporting times. The data is there but cumbersome to locate as it has to be searched one date at a time currently. “All time” range only shows thirty days.

  7. 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."

  9. reporting

    Reporting a student (for various reasons, behaviour and Academics mainly) to the teacher in charge of discipline?

    Preferably Academics (No H.W.) is reported under assignments in the individual’s screen and behaviour is reported under Manage Team/members. When the name of the student is selected you get the teacher in charge of discipline for that year group and the guardians' contacts automatically to be selected if needed.

    Moreover, when reporting behaviour issues the choice of selecting multiple students for the same report should be an option.

    This is e.g. of another system.

  10. Add-On to Track Student Attentiveness

    I am teaching my whole school timetable as live lessons on Teams and one of the main difficulties is knowing whether students are paying attention. I have written a detailed spec for a Teams Add-On which would allow teachers to monitor and improve attentiveness during Teams lessons. It's based on a one or two click system for sending a quick preset "check in" question (like "are you still here" or "have you opened the worksheet") to all students. The Add-On would then track how quickly students respond and what their response was and create an "attentiveness" score for each student…

  13. Data & Feedback from a range of assignments

    When looking at the list of assignments at student has completed over a a time period, would there be a way to also integrate the grades and feedback given for those assignments?

    This will be useful for having meetings with parents and students, as the data could be pulled up and we can give an immediate overview of their progress over time, and identify any areas where intervention is necessary.
