  1. Borrar carpetas

    En el Teams estaría bien que los archivos que suben los profesores no pudieran ser borrados por los alumnos, o al menos poder saber quíén lo ha borrado.

    • Seeing multiple screens within teams meetings

      It would be nice to have the option to see the chat box as well as the list of attendees while in a meeting watching the presentation. Sometimes people aren't on mute when they join the meeting and I have to quickly leave the chat and go to the attendees list to figure out who it is that's not on mute and mute them. being able to have the option to have all three things viewable on the screen would be helpful.

      • When a file print out is added automatically set to background

        When adding a document in the collaboration space in Onenote via channels the document should automatically be set to background or that option should be added. You can set it in the app version in advanced settings, but it is not defaulted. It is much easier for students to edit a document in the web versions in the document printout is not moving. Also the teacher my not have access to set to background. Thank you.

        • SDS update Teams Class Notebook more reliably

          We are using SDS (Using Flow which is awesome!!) to sync our courses to Teams. When a student is added to a course, they do not appear in the already created Class Notebook. To get the student to show up, we have to go to Teams, click on the team and click on the Class Notebook and make sure the student is listed. Sometimes they are still not there and we have to click on the Class Notebook of any other team, then go back to the original Class Notebook and then they appear. Is anyone else experiencing this?

              • I would like to receive notifications when files are uploaded.

                As of right now, I receive no notifications when a file is uploaded. I searched notification settings and do not see this as an option. Please allow this option as it is a necessity for those of us who work remotely and need to share files.

                • adding a remind button

                  I was hoping you can add a "remind" button to teams? It would be great to set an alarm to remind the kids when an assignment is due or set up "student of the week" prompts for a set day without having to go in on a daily basis.

                        • Aufgaben abgeben

                          Wenn die Studenten eine Datei in "Aufgaben" abgeben müssen. Dann passiert es häufig, dass sie nicht so lange warten, bis die Datei hochgeladen ist. Sie drücken schon während des Uploads auf den Button "abgeben". Der Upload wird dadurch unterbrochen und die Aufgabe ohne Datei abgegeben.
                          Vorschlag: Die Schaltfläche "abgeben" sollte während des upload Prozesses nicht aktiv sein. Erst nach erfolgtem Datei-Upload sollte diese Schaltfläche wieder aktiv sein.
                          Danke!

                            • Additional user type in team for a class

                              I have created a team for a class that I am teaching. It will be very useful to enrol some users as TAs (teaching assistants). I would like to give these users privileges to grade and edit the assignment scores but will prefer that privileges for creating or deleting an assignment or editing the team settings to be with the owner. Several instructors in my university also face the same situation.

                                When students have to attach a work file to their assignment, they are still able to click "Turned in" and the teacher view also says turned in. They shouldn't get this message if they have no work attached and the assignment requires a work file.

                                • Search user Titles, Department and other profile data (e.g About Me and Projects)

                                  When searching it would be great if the Titles, Department and other profile data (e.g About Me and Projects etc) from AD and SharePoint etc were included. e.g. a search for Head of Maths returned the person whose 'title' in AD/AAD was "Head of Maths"

                                  This is related to the request "About Me' / Teacher Profile section"

                                    • Add a date and/or multiple dates to the feedback on an assignment.

                                      Microsoft should add a date and/or multiple dates to the feedback on an assignment.

                                      I.E. I added feedback and clicked return. A student added work to the assignment link 3 weeks LATE. Once the student added the work it makes it appear that I added the comment then (3 weeks late), as well. It's almost impossible to "argue" that I sent the feedback within 3 school days if I don't have proof of when the original feedback was left!

                                      • Search should include folder names

                                        The search function is otherwise great, but it does not include folder names, like a search in file explorer. Surely that must be a mistake?

                                        • Make word tab bold for new content

                                          We often collaborate in one central word document (with a table). It is in files, but also has its own tab for easy access. But we are not notified of changes until we open it. In OneNote, tabs are bold when there is new content. Could this also be the case in Teams word tabs?
