  1. Provide Individual View to Students in Insights

    It would be beneficial for students to see their own activity inside insights, like number of posts, replies, when they are active in communication because they are often graded for this participation and engagement. Without this visibility it puts the onus on the instructors to share this information, which is extremely manual through Excel exports.

  2. Calculate tardiness in insights

    So far Insights is a beast obtaining detailed information, but that only happens on the Interface inside teams. When you export to excel, the great majority of all that beaut of data doesn't get pulled by the export, and one of those important indicators that I'm dying to get a hold on is the student tardiness in class oooor the actual digital presence in the meetings.

    So far when you export to excel the attendance is shown with a bunch of letter V's on the days the student was active and by that I mean any type of digital activity…

  3. bulk download attendance reports

    Good job on upcoming changes to Insights. They will prove helpful!

    I'd like to bulk-download attendance reports for meetings in my channel.

    This would be a great enhancement so I can do my own data mining. :)

  4. Student name search

    Frequently asked how a particular student is engaging and whilst insights helps is there a way to search a student name and get a list of assignments that have been not viewed, viewed and handed in but also handed in with no attached work. Students regularly hand in to make assignments disappear without actually submitting work. If a % engagement and a % of work submitted can be generated too this will help when writing results/reports about their online learning over all.

  6. Insites

    I was using Incites on Teams to keep track of the time students spend on assignments I give them. It becomes difficult to see the actual activity students spend on assignments with out having to go through all the days and find the time on the "time tracker" portion of Incites.

    On the drop down menu "All Activities" would there be a way to choose a specific assignment so I don't have to spend hours trying to track students time spent on assignments? At present it only gives you assignments in general to look at. Thanks!

  7. Class Teams digital activity download

    School will like to see student activities weekly/monthly and keep track of it. Is there any way to automate and download it? Right now owner/teachers have ability to download digital activity reports from MS Insights app.

  8. Integrate Forms that you assign to 'My groups' into insights

    Add information from Forms that you add to your groups into insights for tracking student activity without it being uploaded as an assignment. For example, if you want a quick 4 question AfL quiz adding it to your group via forms during the lesson and giving the link in chat is much faster than setting it as an assignment but can't currently be analysed in insights to see who engaged at the time.

  9. Hide phone number in profile

    I feel unsafe with the fact that my personal number is easily accessible on my profile on Teams. I've had friends who were contacted by random people with this reason. Really appreciate if there was a feature to hide my number or even just not have it displayed at all.

  10. Downloading attendees of meetings for each Live Lesson within a day

    When downloading the attendees of a meeting from Insight the following day (we wait 24 hours to allow it to upload), the register of attendees can not currently be split in to am and pm sessions, from what we can see, despite the Live Lessons being set up by different members of staff on different channels within the Team group. It would be hugely beneficial if, when we went on to Insights within the appropriate channel, we only saw the attendees of the meeting on that particular channel.

  11. School Leaders Insight Data

    It would be useful to easily be able to report on student engagement being able to filter down based on large groups or Teams.
    For example we have Year Teams setup to send information out to students however these are not used for assignments. It would be useful for school leaders if you could use these Year Teams or whole school to gain insights into student engagement.
    The whole school insight has very limited data.
    The information that is useful for school is:-


    • How many assignments pupils have had

    • How many meetings each pupil has attended or missed

    • If pupils…

  14. Assignments not handed in

    In the previous version, we could see more analysis on who had not handed in assignments or % of assignments late or outstanding with a list of names of students in these categories.

  15. Insights in iPad app please :)

    Currently the tab is only available on the Teams desktop app and browser version, not on Pad/Phone app . As a school that deploys iPads to teaching staff, this is a feature that is invaluable for staff. It would be great if this could be added to iPad app.

  18. 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

  19. 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!
