  1. Page colour options for those with Irlen Syndrom like in OneNote

    I have students who really like the option to change the colour of the page in OneNote to help with their learning, but this is not an option for Teams which is a shame when I use both together.

  2. change order of channels

    The order that channels appear needs to be alpha-numeric or even better, allow the Team owner to sort the order of how channels appear for all users. Problem is if you have a channel for each year group (e.g. year 9, year 10, year 11 etc) then they appear as year 10, year 11, year 9. Not very intuitive!

  4. Make it easier to dial the number of a contact

    Currently the only way you can make a phone call to a contact is from the Calls\Contacts list by clicking a contacts telephone number. There should be the option to dial a contact's number wherever you can see the contact within Teams.

  6. Students removed from Teams should be automatically removed from the Class Notebook

    Students removed from a Team should automatically be removed from the Class Notebook within that Team. This will make new semesters/school years much easier to navigate.

  8. I would like to be able to choose the theme image when I use the class mode because the present images are a bit childish.

  9. American V British English phrasing

    In assignments the phrase 'turned in' is used to describe students finishing an assignment. I was wondering if it would be possible to have a more British English alternative phrase. Maybe 'completed' or 'submitted'? (we would say 'hand in' rather than 'turn in' when describing homework and students/teachers have found it hard to understand what 'turned in' means) Thanks

  10. It would be helpful to have the ability to make Buckets private in Planner--we have a large team that has individual tasks assigned.

  11. Delete Conversations

    We need the ability to delete more than just our own messages, and instead delete entire conversations on our end. Many of the major and successful chat systems used in businesses have this feature, and it is one Teams should implement ASAP to make it even better. There are so many reasons/requests for this that I'm seeing... privacy, cleaning up history/clutter... Please implement this as soon as humanly possible, or sooner! :)

  13. Display account information

    In my Skype for Bu. siness, I used this with several of my accounts. I could always tell which account I am using SfB. I would like to see featured a way to tell which account one is using MS Team with.

  15. Remove the limit on Teams created

    My district has implemented a policy where only the tech coaches can create teams - which has value...it's easier for us to help teachers troubleshoot/learn, it's immensely helpful for maternity and other leaves when we have to move teachers around, etc. We're now running into a problem with the limit on 250 created Teams though (it's a problem due to Teams popularity! that's a great thing!). Can this be altered/bumped up sooner than later?

  16. Add an app that randomly chooses a student from your class roster

    Google Classroom has an option that allows you to randomly select a student from the class roster. I use third party apps to do this now, but it'd be easier if Microsoft Teams incorporated an option/app to do that for us. I like to randomly choose a student to answer questions, and I imagine others would like that capability too.

  17. MIS integration for Teams members

    Could there be / is there a way to migrate class groups from SIMS /MIS directly into Teams so that it is quick and easy to create class teams? Currently staff have to set up their groups and is a little time consuming even with codes generated through the settings.

  18. Ability to remove assignments tab

    I work at a university and already have an LMS. It would be nice to customize the Teams sidebar to not include assignments since most of the people that use it are employees not students.

  20. share links to Teams App downloads

    Every time I start a new Team it would be nice to post the links to the iOS, macOS, Android, & Windows 10 Teams App in an initial post...If these link were made readily available thru the Teams App that would be very effective.
