  1. I teach 3rd graders and I would like to see Microsoft Teams become more kid friendly.

    I would like to see the site become more appealing. My school district uses teams, other school districts use Google classroom. I just wish there was some Way teams offered similar things or atleast make it more appealing for little children. When I think of teams, I think of a platform to host a meeting for adults or for a business.

  4. Need a standalone attendance app

    I want an attendance app unrelated to a meeting. I'm not always holding a live meeting for a class, so it would be nice to be able to have students record their attendance in another way. Currently we use forms to take attendance, but that requires multiple steps.

  5. I just wish that Zoom and similar platforms would create a setting that allowed the host to be seen by all but only the participants seen by

    A setting is needed that allows the host to be seen by all but only the participants seen by the host. This would cut down on a great deal of anxiety/distraction while still allowing for the teacher to monitor focus/engagement.

  6. When hyperlink is clicked in TEAMS, open web pages in Teams by default

    When a resources is liked from a document (open in Teams), in an assignment, or in chat, it opens a browser outside of Teams. It would be very helpful for younger students to have anything clicked in Teams open in teams by default (the way it does when a website is pinned as a tab at the top of the page). Having ellipsis and choosing "open in browser" "open in SharePoint" as currently exists in assignments is nice, but opening in TEAMS by default would help our younger learners stay focused.

  8. Break-out rooms functionality

    Break-out rooms functionality requires corrections/enhancements:
    a) More than 3 break-out teams cannot be launched at a time.
    b) While break-out teams are in meeting and teacher 'resumes' one or two meetings, there is confusion - in which break-out room the teacher is in. Display has to show clearly in BO room teacher is in.
    c) When you 'hang up' break-out rooms, transition to main room is not smooth - quite often it is clumsy.
    d) After break-out rooms are 'hang up' and joins the main room, download attendance option does not work properly. Does not download any name.

  18. I should able see the any participant video in full screen. Full screen video of any one participant option should be made available.

    If I want to see a incoming video in full screen of any member then the option ahould be made available for the user. It is actially required for online education. Display of 9 video in a single screen resulted in a very small display of teacher video and students do not able to see the contents properly. Therefore an option should be there to turn any participants video to full screen, so that video of teacher end are properly visible to students.

  19. The ability to delete chat/conversation history

    We should be able to delete all history at one time or individually. The only two options currently available are to leave a chat and to hide...and even with the hiding it has to be done one at a time!!! so painful!
