  1. camera capability

    Some kids are not comfortable being on camera, so it would be nice to have them be able to have cameras (video)on, but only have teachers see them and not each other (so maybe call it a teacher view option)!

  3. make 2 types of raise your hand, for questions, the other one for answers.

    make 2 types of hands they would have diffrent colours, example, the asking hand is green, and the answering a question hand is red, its really bad if you were going to ask the teacher to go to the bathroom, and he thinks you are going to answer the question.

  4. Nicknames

    When on a call, some students wish to go by different names, and teachers are constantly mistaking mine, personally. We don't have the ability to appear as this nickname which can also get confusing when communicating on a call (considering you can't tag people when you are talking like you can on comments, etc.).

  6. It would be great to be able to see all the videos on screen at the same time (like grid mode on Zoom)

    I am a teacher and it is a lot easier to check that everyone is behaving and doing their work if I can see them all at the same time.

  7. One way camera settings?

    The last few days there has been a discussion in Norwegian Newspapers that pupils hesitate to keep the camara open, much to the teachers dismay. Teachers like to see the ones they talk to, (some) pupils printscreen other pupils that may do smth funny, impropriate or other 'faces' that is not OK to have spread on SoMe.
    It ought to be a small task for MS to have one-way camera? I as the organizer can see my audience, they see me, BUT NOT the others in the audience??

  10. Change Team type to CLASS

    I am a school teacher, and the problem is, when the admins created or teams from the admin panel, the type of the Teams are other than CLASS, so we can't use Assignments, Grades, Notes, Mute student from "Manage Team", can't add Insights and similar things important for teachers. Also when i try creating team using "Create a team using an existing team as a template" , and try to create CLASS type so i can transfer all things, don't show when the type its different.

  11. Add a Be right back emoji

    You already have emojis in teams so just add one that says bathroom or Be right back It could be a clock or a timer or anything for that matter but it would help out so much. Not only for bathroom breaks though there are many reasons to do this for me I have panic attacks and they come out of the blue and so I don't have time to tell my teachers that I can't that I'm having one so this would really hep me. Thank you so much and have a great day!

  13. Please make it when somebody kick you out of the meeting it displays his/her name

    Please make it when somebody kick you out of the meeting it displays his/her name, or when he/she makes you an attendee, because its so annyoing that people can keep trolling you and u dont even know who it is. Its not something hard to implement so please do it.

  14. Change background during a live meeting

    I am a parent and we use Microsoft Teams for work meets and we are able to change out back ground so that everyone in the house walking by is not visible to meeting participates. I think this would be a great option for the students as well so that family members and such are not in the background.

  16. adding the ability to mute people only for yourself

    If someone was talking too much but there is nobody to mute them somebody could make it so they mute that person only for themselves, kind of like blocking them so they would not be able to hear their voice but still see their chat messages. That person would not be muted to others that had not muted them though

  18. Block requesting options for young kids

    My son continuously gets in trouble for pressing the “request control” button on the screen. Either that, or he has figured out how to mute a teacher. At such a young age you almost can’t blame him for pressing the big button staring him in the face, but I also can’t afford to hover over him day in and day out.

  19. Kids mute me as a joke. I cannot see who does it. Can we have a feature where it is impossible for a learner to mute the presenter?
