    Thank you for everyone’s feedback. We are actively working on this. In the meantime, please use the desktop Teams app or the mobile SharePoint app to access Class Materials.
    (‘Class Materials’ can be found underneath Pages in SharePoint’s navigation.)

  2. Submitting of a task on a restricted network

    Can Microsoft make it possible to let users deliver tasks on a restricted network (when taking tests/exams) while access to chat/files (and such) in the Teams app still is restricted/unaccessable?

  3. Blinking Notification on Teams Taskbar

    When receiving a IM message within Teams, it would be nice for one of the settings to be a blinking notification in the task bar after the original message pops on the screen. Similar to Skype for Business, it would draw my attention to the fact that I have a pending message. It would be nice for that to be a feature under each notification section so someone could turn that on and be alerted with a blinking update notification.

  4. More background options for Announcement banners in the Conversation Tab

    It would be great to have more background options for the Announcements I post in the Conversations tab on Teams. I enjoy the current options, but can only post the fire-breathing dragon so many times before it is no longer novel and eye-catching.

  5. Making a Team: which option do I pick? (reducing failure demand)

    In an education tenant, we get four options for Teams: Class, PLC, Staff, and Other (the option formerly known as Anyone).

    It would be really useful if:

    1. There could be a hyperlink below the options that said something like "Not sure what to pick? Click here to find out more." That could go by default to the Microsoft article.

    2. If that URL could be customised to point to a URL of the tenant admin's choice, that would be excellent.

    We're seeing people getting confused by the options and once you've created your Team, you cannot change it. This…

  6. video

    I would like to be able to see video from all participants in a meeting/ call at the same time. Currently in a Teams call, we can only see a few participants video stream even if there are many more on the call.

  7. Multiple Screen Share

    In Teams you can only share one screen at a time. I work in an office where we use 2-3 screens. Being able to share multiple screens at one time would be very beneficial.

  8. Shifts Clock on Desktop

    The time clock function on Shifts is only functional for mobile devices. We cannot ask our employees to use their personal phones or data in order to clock in/out. Additionally, this also assumes the privilege that front line employees have a smart phone with app capabilities. Can we please have the clock in/out function be workable for a desktop PC?

  10. Share Planner Tasks with Multiple Teams

    I would like to be able to copy tasks that I create in Planner to multiple teams (classes), so that I don't have to retype it for each individual team.

  13. Assignments - Printing Comments and Feedback (for EV purposes)

    Ability to print feedback view of an assignment with:

    - The assignment itself

    - Comments within the assignment

    - Summative feedback comment at the end

    This would be great for when people need to print off work for external verifiers.

  14. Several calendars in one

    My students are in a lot of different teams (up to 15 teams possible). Each team uses a calendar. So the student has to check a lot of different calendars. It would be perfect if each student has his/her events from all teams collected in a personalized calendar.

  15. integrate with Rediker and OneNote

    Integrate Teams/OneNote with Rediker (Plus Portals) so that grades can be automatically transferred to Rediker from Teams.

    OneNote can connect with Rediker

    Teams can connect with OneNote, but when doing so, OneNote cannot connect to Rediker. Only one connection is allowed, so grades cannot be transferred from Teams (or OneNote) into Rediker. I understand this functionality is available for Powerschool and am hoping that it is coming for Rediker as well.

    I would love to use teams as it has some great features, but I just don't want to give up my connection to transfer grades directly into Rediker that…

  17. Remove "Staff Notebook" from Microsoft Teams for Education

    I am not sure if this is a bug or not but we are using Microsoft Teams educational licenses. We want to use the Teams for our internal staff departments first. For some reason the setup of teams includes extra educational features like it force creates a OneNote tab called "Staff Notebook" in the General channel of each team. the OneNote includes a lot of classroom type customization that we do not want/need. Our departments have their own OneNotes. I cannot delete Staff Notebook tab or even rename it. I can add and delete other OneNotes but we want a…

    Hi everyone! If you do not want to use the OneNote Staff Notebook or any of the other default tabs across the various team types, we suggest creating an ‘Anyone’ team instead.

    The ‘Anyone’ team will not include any add-ons by default and gives you the flexibility to use Teams however you would like. We understand that there are so many other ways you can use Teams that does not fit the Class/PLC/Staff team template. So ‘Anyone’ will be your best option!

    More information on the different team types in Teams for Education can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/choose-a-team-type-to-collaborate-in-microsoft-teams-0a971053-d640-4555-9fd7-f785c2b99e67

    Feel free to reply back here if you have additional feedback.

    Thank you!
    Justin

  19. Posibility to add new Document Library

    I want it to be easier to add a new document library in a channel, besides the Files tab. If I click on the plus sign in the files menu, it is only possible to link to an existing document library. I wish that I also could create a new one without having to go to Sharepoint.

  20. Multiple Phone Numbers or Multiple DIDs for a single user

    A user should be able to have multiple phone numbers, some might need a number in different countries or in some cases when a user is terminated calls will have to go to another user. User should have a primary number and the option for other inbound numbers.
