  1. Using the Insight tab for class attendance

    We would like to have specific scheduled class sessions where we can also track attendance for each session and that students could see what they attended. If we have sessions scheduled in Outlook, would it be possible for the students to log in to those sessions and then attendance reports (when they logged in, logged out, possibly attentiveness) be compiled that both the teachers and students could see? Students would just see their own attendance but teachers would see everyone's attendance.I am including my email address below and I would love to discuss further with someone.

  4. need to add the ability to switch between multiple teams... Bring what you did to the moble to desktop!!

    have multiple children who all use the same platform and device for their education. As a parent the ability to constantly be informed with both classes is vitally important... the mobile app feature multiple accounts solved some of the problems but need the same level of flexibility in the online platform to facilitate virtual education.

  7. reporting

    Reporting a student (for various reasons, behaviour and Academics mainly) to the teacher in charge of discipline?

    Preferably Academics (No H.W.) is reported under assignments in the individual’s screen and behaviour is reported under Manage Team/members. When the name of the student is selected you get the teacher in charge of discipline for that year group and the guardians' contacts automatically to be selected if needed.

    Moreover, when reporting behaviour issues the choice of selecting multiple students for the same report should be an option.

    This is e.g. of another system.

  11. Integrate Excel with Teams for Attendance

    Being a student our first 10 mins get wasted in attendance as faculty has to call out all names and mark our attendance. India we have 100 students in one session, so its too hectic.

    Its gonna be great, if Teams team can integrate, Excel with it and can fetch data for all people who have joined the meeting. If possible fetch as per present date and time, Its gonna be helpful for saving time and increase efficiency.

  14. Monthly attendance report automatically marked according to the duration attended each day

    School teachers face a lot of difficulty in marking attendance for students. Some students drop in or out in between the class. Even though the attendance report lets us know about it, it is very laborious job to identify it after every class.

    There should be a feature in which the monthly attendance report should be generated following points mentioned below: -


    1. There should be a list of all the members in the the class (in the team) which will come out in an excel/ csv file in row A and the following rows will have dates for the entire…

  15. Hello!! we would like to see many students/participants on either side of the screen while Screen sharing so as to have better control.

    We teachers have to do recapitulation and take short test to check the understanding of the lesson. It will be better if the questions asked by the teacher gets printed on the screen.

  16. Add-On to Track Student Attentiveness

    I am teaching my whole school timetable as live lessons on Teams and one of the main difficulties is knowing whether students are paying attention. I have written a detailed spec for a Teams Add-On which would allow teachers to monitor and improve attentiveness during Teams lessons. It's based on a one or two click system for sending a quick preset "check in" question (like "are you still here" or "have you opened the worksheet") to all students. The Add-On would then track how quickly students respond and what their response was and create an "attentiveness" score for each student…

  17. Expanded Insights for Across All Teams

    Insights is great at Team level for teachers, but not so good for Middle or Senior Leaders to view trends across year groups/ subjects etc.
    I would like to see a version of Insights (or some alternative analytics option) that allows specific colleagues to view this data across multiple Teams. Perhaps even a linked Power BI file that draws on that data for the tenancy.
