  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?

  9. 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. 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.

  13. Show download progress (Files Tab/Downloads) for any kind of file (Currently this is not showing).

    You cant see the progress of a download, like when i try to download a meetings video i cant see the progress, i can only see when this is finished.

  14. 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.

  15. File additions across multiple teams.

    Could you please make it possible to add a file or folder to multiple teams at one time rather than adding them separately to each team. I teach 5 AP sections and they all work simultaneously. It takes time to add the same files to each class separately.

  16. 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!

  17. Folder 'assignments' for students

    It would be great for students to have a folder 'assignments' where all the assignments from different subjects (with deadlines) would be placed. It would be easier to organise work.

  20. Pin very important things on chat box, like a document or chat

    Make things like documents, links, and chat visible for EVERYBODY without scrolling in the chat box. This is for quick access to important links, like tutorials and YouTube educational videos. For example if a teacher has tech problems with hearing videos, students can go to the link themselves. Or just list things without sharing the screen!
