  1. Provide Individual View to Students in Insights

    It would be beneficial for students to see their own activity inside insights, like number of posts, replies, when they are active in communication because they are often graded for this participation and engagement. Without this visibility it puts the onus on the instructors to share this information, which is extremely manual through Excel exports.

  2. Provide an option to student to raise a flag, if gone on a break.

    During the class student might have to go for nature call or water break. So, student can raise that flag, and if during the class faculty called out the student name than faculty can see if the student is available or not.
    Also to track the break time, a timer can also be shown for that flag.

    This should only be shown to faculty who should be the owner of that Team or group.

  3. Use insights to measure the activity on Class Notebook.

    We have insights installed but it does not currently show us when children access the class notebook. This would help a great deal to see who is accessing the work. We can see they have been onto Teams if they look at files or post but no record of class notebook access.

  4. Expanded Insights for Across All Teams

    Insights is great at Team level for teachers, but not so good for Middle or Senior Leaders to view trends across year groups/ subjects etc.
    I would like to see a version of Insights (or some alternative analytics option) that allows specific colleagues to view this data across multiple Teams. Perhaps even a linked Power BI file that draws on that data for the tenancy.

  5. Analysis and insights

    Insights is good at a classroom level however it would be great to get similar data at a school and trust wide level..
    As a director of digital learning I would like to be able to run insights style analysis via the teams admin console to a far greater depth than the current analysis allows. I would like to be able to be able to see things like how many teachers and which office 365 accounts have set teams up, be able to group them via subject and then look globally at assignments set, hand ins, latest, time spent on…

  6. CHAT

    Teachers need to be able to disable chats for individual students or entire classes when students misuse the feature. Having no control over what goes in to the chat is very difficult.

  9. allow multiple user team accounts to log in and stay logged in and switch easily between teams accounts.

    allow multiple user team accounts to log in and stay logged in and switch easily between teams accounts. For example: I have a work teams account, college teams account, and my daughter that uses my computer also has a school account. We miss a lot of important announcements because another account is logged in and the others dont send notifications.

  10. Generate attendance lists automatically

    Staff are forgetting to download and send registers in following each lesson, sometimes to export takes time, does not arrive or is in an unreadable format.
    Can the file be generated and sent to a specific email address or saved in a folder automatically? This would save much time and avoid inaccuracies.
    I have used Insights and it is great for analysis of user activity over time. However, I have seen discrepancies between numbers on registers generated and those on the Insight lists. Insight’s have been lower.
    I am looking for the quickest, easiest, most accurate option as I am…

  11. Hide phone number in profile

    I feel unsafe with the fact that my personal number is easily accessible on my profile on Teams. I've had friends who were contacted by random people with this reason. Really appreciate if there was a feature to hide my number or even just not have it displayed at all.

  12. Reports for multiple class pages

    Please can you consider adding an ‘export to Excel’ option for the Insights snapshot view or the full reports of multiple Teams class pages?
    Many organisations require a top level dashboard/ report for admins to view activity on multiple pages at once.

  16. Insights missed assignments interface

    The new insights shows you missed assignments. But it does not show you which student you missed and you can't go to them directly from that page. Please link assignments into the new missed assignments category of insights.

  17. Include meeting time and linked class notebook time in Insights

    Including class notebook time and meetings in insights would give educators a better overall picture of student activity.

  20. bulk download attendance reports

    Good job on upcoming changes to Insights. They will prove helpful!

    I'd like to bulk-download attendance reports for meetings in my channel.

    This would be a great enhancement so I can do my own data mining. :)
