  1. Restrict students from creating their own channels.

    In my school, students are creating their own teams that teachers can't see or monitor. As a result, there is a lot of irrelevant and inappropriate communication happening in these channels. I suggest students especially at the primary level, get permission from their teacher to create a channel or once a student creates a channel/team, the teacher is notified or added to the team by default, or the teacher has some access to monitor the created channel.

  3. Font color options

    I would love to have different (or more) color options for the font in assignment descriptions and/or channel posts. The options that are currently available are mostly too light in my opinion. I would like to be able to use different colored fonts to draw attention to specific items, but the available font choices are a little hard to read.

  4. Teams owners deleting their Teams in error

    Please remove the ability of Teams Owners being able to delete Teams! In an educational environment, this is creating havoc. Instead, have a new Creator permission so that unless they created that Team, they cannot delete it. That ability should be reserved for the person who created the Team and the Administrators.

    We have restricted Team creation to a very select few more "responsible" staff members!

  7. Logbook of actions In meetings

    I am a teacher, and some of my students think it is funny to mute each other all the time.
    I wonder if it is possible to see who is doing this. Maybe if it was possible to download some sort of logbook after the meeting, with actions and names.

  13. Allow meeting recording previews when sliding mouse on time bar.

    I often go back and watch class recordings on teams but because there is no such feature to see what is going on at any minute, I would have to skip big chunks of the recording to try to find the one part I am looking for. It would be very helpful and would save so much time for me.

  18. Add Virtual backgrounds to the browser extension

    I am using the teams browser extension for school at home because the app is constantly crashing. We are currently unable to use virtual backgrounds on the browserversion. my desk is in an area where people are constantly moving around in the background. I am constantly having to mute or turn my camera off. Adding Virtual backgrounds to the browser extension would be a huge help, especially because we are now getting points docked for not having our cameras on.

  19. closed caption during live meetings

    Closed captions would be extremely useful for hosted live events in Microsoft teams. This feature could be accessible to the viewer under the The playback and quality features are helpful, but could use the settings tab. The addition of closed caption here acknowledges the neurodiversity of Teams viewers and assists with multi-tasking on the same device (especially when occupying a space where speaker audio is not appropriate). I look forward to this adoption, as well as many others listed here soon.
