  1. ALLOW ONLY THE TEACHER TO VIEW US VIA CAMERA AND NOT OTHER STUDENTS AS WELL!!!

    As a student I personally hate turning on my camera during class! Due to the pandemic it is quite necessary especially during tests. But I would be completely okay with having just my lecturer being able too see me. So please Microsoft!!!!! Make this happen..online learning is the future so why not make us feel more comfortable! Thank you

  2. Breakout Rooms

    In the TEAMS meetings, can you please make it that for the breakout rooms, the names are alphabetized, then it would be a lot easier when assigning group. Thank you!

  4. Track attendance in private channel

    I was not able to add insights to my private channels. It would be really useful to track attendance / activity for these students, as the team was created by level and the channels used for specific subjects. Hence they were made private.

  5. Background feature , need it pls

    Dear microsoft teams,
    Pls microsoft , introduce background changing option in Android app of MS teams
    We have online assemblies n we are told to change our background according to theme, n it becomes necessary to use laptop for it, atleast start with background blurring option n then custom background. It's a request . It would really help students who do not own a pc to take part in assemblies properly.
    Thankyou

  6. Teams/Insight

    Google classrooms automatically emails through the register/participants list once the meeting has finished. In Teams you have to download the participants list which is not in alphabetical order by surname. Insights shows you if they were there but this doesn't always match with the participants list you got sent through. Insights also seems to show whole engagement across the day for the pupils where as individual teachers just want details for their subject.

  8. Include meeting time and linked class notebook time in Insights

    Including class notebook time and meetings in insights would give educators a better overall picture of student activity.

  9. Why does the window size always go back to a default setting?

    I use TEAMS for 7 hours a day for language school. We are constantly going in and out of breakout rooms and every time we come back to the main room my screen goes back to the size it was when I log on in the morning and then I have to resize it. We go into breakout rooms multiple times every hour. I have to resize the screen at least 20 times a day.
    Why doesn't the screen stay the size I have chosen like it does it most other apps? Is there a way to set a default…

  12. Generate attendance lists automatically

    Staff are forgetting to download and send registers in following each lesson, sometimes to export takes time, does not arrive or is in an unreadable format.
    Can the file be generated and sent to a specific email address or saved in a folder automatically? This would save much time and avoid inaccuracies.
    I have used Insights and it is great for analysis of user activity over time. However, I have seen discrepancies between numbers on registers generated and those on the Insight lists. Insight’s have been lower.
    I am looking for the quickest, easiest, most accurate option as I am…

  13. Teams is clunky and really, really hard to use. Why do you have tobuse Notes, to upload photos. And why can't you upload more than one phot

    Imagine someone who isn't a windows fan using teams. It sucks. It's counter intuitive and is so bad, I came close to dropping out of a course because we had to use it.

  16. export data

    How can we export the selected data?
    I need the export data to excel of Digital activity include the Activity Filter that I select.
    For example, I see students access some files on the virtual report in Microsoft Teams, but when I export data I got just "v" in excel.

  18. Reports for multiple class pages

    Please can you consider adding an ‘export to Excel’ option for the Insights snapshot view or the full reports of multiple Teams class pages?
    Many organisations require a top level dashboard/ report for admins to view activity on multiple pages at once.

  20. Insights app analytics for non-class teams

    I am the librarian at a High School using Teams. The library team is set up as an "other" team (the type for clubs, etc) since its primary function is to share information and resources with our school community. I would love to be able to see analytics regarding how students interact with posts (do they click on links, images, etc) and tabs. Right now, I am using the channel analytics and Sharepoint Site data for my statistics but I don't think I am getting the whole picture as to how students are interacting with the information being shared via…
