  1. 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.

  2. Please allow the ability to flip the camera from mirror to actual view. Writing on a board or showing images to the camera are all mirror

    Please allow the ability to flip the camera from a mirror view to actual view on apple products. Writing on a board or showing images to the camera are all mirrored. If there is already a way to reverse the image a button on the video menu would be very useful.

    Thanks!

  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. 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.

  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. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. I would like to be able to see which students have viewed videos on our class stream channel.

    We can see if the students have viewed an assignment, but can't tell if they have viewed the linked videos on stream.

  10. 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.

  13. I want to filter insights data by tag group

    Rather than filtering all students, or to a specific pupil, I would really like to be able to filter the insights data by the tags I have setup in the team. This would be really useful for sub dividing pupils by class, subject free school meals, additional support needs etc. Please make this happen.

  15. Monthly attendance report automatically marked according to the duration attended each day

    School teachers face a lot of difficulty in marking attendance for students. Some students drop in or out in between the class. Even though the attendance report lets us know about it, it is very laborious job to identify it after every class.

    There should be a feature in which the monthly attendance report should be generated following points mentioned below: -


    1. There should be a list of all the members in the the class (in the team) which will come out in an excel/ csv file in row A and the following rows will have dates for the entire…

  17. Show when a member was last online

    I am trying to figure out which pupils have accessed our class Teams but this would be a lot more useful if you could see a date and a time when that member last logged on.

  18. Integrate Excel with Teams for Attendance

    Being a student our first 10 mins get wasted in attendance as faculty has to call out all names and mark our attendance. India we have 100 students in one session, so its too hectic.

    Its gonna be great, if Teams team can integrate, Excel with it and can fetch data for all people who have joined the meeting. If possible fetch as per present date and time, Its gonna be helpful for saving time and increase efficiency.

  19. task dependencies

    Hi there, it would be great if Teams added a task dependency ability to the planner. Task 1 is dependent on completion of task 2 and so forth. Notifications for task 2 non completion will also be sent to task 1 group. Visual connections between the two or in the expanded task choices it is apparent.
    This could be as simple as the ability to also tag another task not just people.

    Thanks!
