  2. Upload files to multiple channels at the same time

    When posting a message please allow us to upload a file to multiple channels.
    Currently if you attach a file to a message you can only post it to one channel. Many teachers are responsible for multiple classes in the same grade. Having to go and upload a file to each team and channel one by one is very time consuming.

  3. Let .pdf presentations to be shared in Teams (currently Powerpoint only is supported)!

    Hi,

    I use .pdf slides (written in LaTeX, lots of equations, tables etc.) in my classrooms, yet I cannot share them because only Powerpoint is supported, so far. It would be great to make .pdf presentations shareable in Teams.

  6. Posting across channels with attachments

    The option to post on multiple channels is awesome! I wish there could be a way to attach a file and share it across multiple channels. Is that a future possibility? Would really help out the teachers at our school! OR is there an alternative way to share the same content (with attachments) across multiple channels and only posting once?

  7. Add virtual manipulatives for students to use within Teams.

    This feature would take Teams to a whole new level compared to competitors. A library of virtual manipulative that teachers can drag into the meeting screen for students to see on an interactive whiteboard. For example, fraction parts, area tiles, counters, base 10 blocks, ruler, dice, etc.

  10. View of the files uploaded in Microsoft Teams ought to no longer be tormented by the theme selected. (Please vote)

    (Use of the link is given on the end of the article)

    By https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/users/2323166872-microsoftuser1,

    I am writing this to @microsoftteams.uservoice.com and the crew hoping that they'll solve my problem. I have a proposal. It's that I have selected the "High contrast" mode for my view. It's very nice! No doubt :). Just I have a hassle while opening the documents uploaded in files or class notebook! :( …
    Each time I open the files the whole file opens up in a high contrast mode - which even changes the view and is a "trouble"! So my opinion is that…

  13. Downloading status

    It would be great to see a sort of progress bar, showing the percentage of files currently downloaded. When trying to download several podcasts (i.e. more than 1GB), I need to check manually every 2 minutes if the files are finally downloaded.

  14. Have an option of renaming files and deleting files in the mobile app.

    The desktop app has an option of renaming and deleting files where as the mobile app doesn't.
    That option should be available for the mobile app too.

  15. Have a 'Class materials' File in every channel

    Can every channel have a 'Class materials' section. Or can there be an option to tick where students can't edit the document.

    I have each topic set up as a channel on my Teams page and students keep clicking on the files and editing them by mistake- locking the file/ having a class materials in every channel would be a dream!

  18. recall One Note pages

    There needs to be a way to recall One Note pages as easily as distributing them. When I delete an assignment, I want it to automatically delete any One Note pages that were distributed with the assignment. Or, if I distribute a page to the Class Notebook, there should be an easy way to recall pages from student notebooks. Distributing pages in only a couple of clicks, but there is not option to recall or remove pages without going in to each students' notebook and deleting the pages manually. That is a huge amount of time with 150 student notebooks.

  20. Make a playback speed button for all videos uploaded.

    Many are using this app to upload their lectures. Their initial talking speed may be too slow for its listeners. This will 100% make everyone's life easier and happier.
