  6. add question reaction to chat

    You can already react to chat messages with a heart or thumbs up, but I wish there was a question mark or confused face. Thanks!

  7. It would be really great and helpful if disable chat for students is provided.

    Students should not chat either before or after the class time in their grade subject teams....A separate team could be created for them to ask their queries.

  8. Private Chat

    When you are in a meeting, you can mention someone but put in between ( ) so you can private chat with someone. You can also add a range of people's names in the parenthesis to private chat with a group! For example, someone can mention my name and put it as (example) to private chat with me! Another example is (example, other example) to add more than two people on your private chat! This will help a lot because we would socialize more in a classroom without bothering the teacher!

  9. give an option to have a separate tab for chat

    I want to be able to access chats while working on other tabs to be able to multitask. having to popup each chat individually instead of a dedicated alternate window for chat is too much of a hassle

  12. See if other people have viewed your message

    Once you post a message, you can then see if other people in the group have viewed your message. To maintain privacy, the other users can block this.

  13. Record audio

    It is about students to record what they want to say, and then they need to send the recorded audio to their teacher.

  15. Send many private chats at once to individual students

    It would be wonderful to be able to send the same private chat to a group of selected students in a class, but keep the chat individual. I often need to send a message to students about their missing work, it would be great to send the specific students missing that work all at once. Or a check in in class like, "Hey! how is your Greece government assignment going? Do you have any questions?" and not have to go through all 30 students individually.

    You have this feature set up on Rooms under "Announcement" where it sends the message…

  16. Give the ability to leave the advanced format tool on!

    It would be so helpful if the advanced format tool had the option to toggle on at all times so it would not have to be clicked on each time when starting a message!

    This would transform my TEAMS usage!!!

  17. Private Chatting with orginisers/teachers/managers ext

    It would be an intelligent idea to introduce chatting privatley with the orginiser of the teams call. This would be an appropiate idea to intorduce due to students maybe feeling anxious about unmuting and speaking in the chat. It may also help if you are doing a test and blocking others from getting a notifaction you can just privatley chat the teacher.

  19. Just one suggestion, I think it would be better if you keep the feature of Deleting and Editing messages.

    Sometimes I want to Delete a message I should not have posted, or correct a typo in a message.
