  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.

  3. 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.

  5. Schedule when your Post appears

    Allow the ability to schedule when a post (or new conversation in Posts) appears similar to how Assignments can be scheduled. This will further help automate daily tasks for teachers.

  6. Master audio control for live event

    Hi MS Teams,

    I have been using the Live Event in Teams a lot.

    There is one feature that would be helpful as a Producer.

    It would be great to be able to mute the master audio out.

    You could have the event live, with a holding slide broadcasting.

    However, still be able to talk to the Presenters and Producers in the

    back end, right up until you want to start presenting.

    Is this something that may be added in the future?

    Kind regards,

    Mark

  8. 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.

  11. 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?"

  13. 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

    Please can you add a import photo where you can blur your background? Then we can import our own photos and have them as our background.

  16. Add paste image, text box, drag and drop, zoom in or out to the Whiteboard in Teams

    The Whiteboard would be more useful with the ability to: 1) paste an image or anything onto the whiteboard. 2) insert a text box, 3) move what's on the whiteboard to a different area on the whiteboard, 4) zoom in or out

  18. Would it be possible to have a Lock Mode whenever you have a quiz?

    During remote learning, we use online tools to create and facilitate exams. In my case I use MS Forms for my formative and summative assessments. To avoid plagiarism and opening of other tabs (like google) when taking an exam, I think it would help that there is a LOCK MODE in MS Teams to avoid students from opening tabs or other channels.

  19. 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.
