  1. camera capability

    Some kids are not comfortable being on camera, so it would be nice to have them be able to have cameras (video)on, but only have teachers see them and not each other (so maybe call it a teacher view option)!

  2. Reduce latency (time lag) for audio in meetings

    Many music teachers are beginning to use Teams as an online tool but cannot hold rehearsals because of the time lag in the audio between participants in the meeting. Ideally there could be one person with the video on (the conductor) and all students with audio only. Many recording software programs have a way of reducing latency, but this would have to be adapted to the online issue of sending data over the internet.

  5. mic gain or volume adjusment

    hi it would be very useful to be able to adjust the volume on your own mic, it is way to loud some times compared to on other voice chat services

  7. Allow all call participants to share screen at same time

    Teaching a programming or web development class remotely is tough to help students debug. I have to stop my screen share, and they have to go one by one and ask for help. If I could see all of their screens all the time instead of their webcams it would be much better.

  11. classes with many students (>10)

    PROBLEM:
    Teams is set in such a way that only when the Teams video is in sharing mode the teacher's picture takes up the whole screen for the other members of the class/meeting. Otherwise, his picture can be seen in a smaller box with other boxes representing all the members attending the lesson.
    This is a wonderful tool for meetings or for classes with a small number of students (<10). For classes with many students, such as 80 - 100 this is useless or even misleading.

    I warmly suggest adding a menu to simply distinguish if the Teams user is…

  17. Change background during a live meeting

    I am a parent and we use Microsoft Teams for work meets and we are able to change out back ground so that everyone in the house walking by is not visible to meeting participates. I think this would be a great option for the students as well so that family members and such are not in the background.
