  1. User Pronouns

    Many of my classmates either have androgynous names or use pronouns that others might not assume (they/them). For non-binary and transgender classmates, it's hard to know how to refer to them. In many cases, pronouns aren't on teachers or students minds', so students accidentally get misgendered. Having pronouns next to names (maybe optional) would be an easy quick-hand way of communicating the best way to refer to your peers.

  6. Can there be a way to mute particular Teams?

    I am a member of multiple Team classes as I attend them once a month. However, I get daily class invite notifications as they are sent to the entire class. I would like to be able to click on the three dots and have "mute Team" or "mute notifications" as an option. This would include the emails that arrive from the invites as well.

  8. Teacher Mode - Students See Only Teacher But Not Other Students

    There should be a "teacher mode" where the teacher can see the students, and the students can see the teacher, but the students CANNOT see each other. Sometimes it's great for students to see each other and interact and socialize and feel a classroom vibe.

    But other times, it's very distracting for students to see each other. And sometimes students don't want other students to be able to see them or their home environment (i.e. for socioeconomic inequality reasons).

    The tech seems to already be in place to "turn on" this feature, and I think teachers would love the option,…

  10. Image close button needs to be moved!

  11. the teams status is broken

    sometimes the status of people just randomly change from in a meeting to offline or available to in a call or meeting so teachers sometimes mark students absent because of this

  12. Allow teachers to enable a 'student view' for testing and demo purposes

    Allow teachers to 'View from student point of view' in Teams to enable teachers to easily test a Team from a students point of view and also demo to students with a view that is familiar to them, instead of demoing to students with your own teacher view which is slightly different.

  14. Compile all student data in one section for all classes

    I'm a special education teacher and it would be great to see what students on my caseload are doing in other classes. I would like to have a caseload roster of students and when I click on their name, it gives me "snapshot" of all their work/progress/activity/etc in all their classes on Teams. Currently I would have to access to each individual class and check their work one by one, but this way would be so much more efficient.

  15. Make Teams App available on Amazon Fire Tablet

    Make the Teams App available on the Fire tablet to support home learning.

    As lots of students are learning at home, many of them will have a Fire Tablet only and will allow them to participate in work created by Teachers on their personal tablet.

  16. Group students in classes so when they send a message, we can see what class they are from

    I have over 100 students a day. I have met them once face to face. It is VERY hard to remember which student is from which class when they send a message. Can we please have a way to group them? Even a color coded icon would work. Anything to help us stop saying "what class are you in?"

  18. Let Students Change Display Name

    There are many transgender students and international students that use a different name than what is shown for their display name. Not allowing them to change their name on the platform can dangerously out transgender students and would reveal personal information about them to the class.

  19. Reject option of removing student to opponent student from meeting.

    Some students are removing the opponent student from the class meeting it's better to reject the option or make the student name display on screen who is removing the opponent student. Make an setting that only an organiser can remove the student from meeting
