  5. turn off notifications on shifts

    Turn off notifications so that shifts updates in the background so a team of 40 people are not getting attacked with shifts changes all the time.

  6. allow users to personalize the view

    I would like to see this have a feature similar to the Microsoft Outlook email inbox where you can switch views while looking at the chat conversations. It would be helpful to stack the list of contacts above the chat window so you can make it slim and vertical instead of bulky and horizontal.

  7. censor Hate language

    As a Teacher and owner of the team I'd like to be able to set some language conventions to be applied to the Conversations tab.

    I'd like to be able to block all common swear words. Also the ability to add additonal custom words might be useful.

    What would be amazing if MS could use some of it's AI powers to scan a message and flag comments it think might be abusive and hide them until the owner has approved them.

    Currently Teams has the ability to mute people etc which is a useful tool. But it would be nice…

  8. Name abbreviations

    The names in feeds appear to have changed to first name initial and then last name - or simply first and middle name initials.
    This is very confusing with similar initials. Please revert back to showing first and last names.

  9. Have an area where teachers can share and create assignments

    It would be great if the teacher had an area that they could just create all of their assignments and not distribute them. It means that teachers could share this space and they could create all of their shared assignments for the year. This would mean that they could then just assign them when and where they want. I have actually had to create a team that my colleagues share ownership of and we make assignments in there but this is a bit difficult. A tab, possibly a bit like the planner app, where you could create them would be…

  12. Notices when anything new has been updated to the team

    Anytime anything is added to one of the teams or a new message, users should get some kind of notice that there are changes and show under activity where they are. It should already be a part of the function for Teams. Instead of having to keep looking to see if anyone has updated something and WHERE?

  13. Add a quick access toolbar to onenote

    OneNote 2016 has a quick access toolbar and I hope to see this feature on the OneNote desktop app soon. It's extremely useful for grabbing different pen colors, etc.

  14. Kids can create Teams

    You can make it where kids can create Teams that way if people need help with something they go to the team and type it in. It can be a way for Kids to communicate with other children.

  15. read only

    It would be great to have the option to add someone as a Read-Only member of teams (similar to Google's Viewer user type).

  17. Add a setting to change the time limit on the tabs

    Imagine you're doing an assignment and you open a new tab to search up something. What feels like 5 seconds you come back to your assignment and it's blocked you. It asks you if you're still there and you click yes, then you go back to your research. 5 seconds later you go back and again it asks you the same thing.
    It's very frustrating and i think it would be better if you can change the time limit on this. For example: 15 minutes, 20 minutes.. I think it would just be MUCH better and way less annoying.

  18. Give the ability to make an assignment optional.

    As a teacher, I sometimes give assignments that are optional. It would be nice to be able to somehow mark this in Teams so when a student doesn't do the assignment, it doesn't show as missing.
