  5. Hello Microsoft, can you please make Grammarly available on Teams?

    Sometimes I or even my teachers make spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes. Grammarly can help improve that.

  7. Please include a STOP mirror imaging option.

    As a teacher it is important to be able to use a document camera with the program in order to have students see certain tools. If I show a calculator the image looks mirrored to me so I have a harder time explaining to students see what they should be doing.

  8. New chat thread for each recurring meeting

    When using recurring meetings, each meeting should have a separate chat thread. Currently, the chat thread picks up where the last meeting ended if your meetings are set to recur. If I use the recurring feature, the chat thread will be so huge that the students won't be able to use it to refer back to class discussions. As a high school teacher, I have to have no fewer than three Teams meetings each day so being able to use recurring meetings would save me a lot of scheduling time.

  9. Color code meetings

    For distance learning I set up all my meetings (classes) in my calendar. I would really like to be able to color code the meetings so it would be easier to distinguish between meetings (classes).

  10. Should be more structured and more intuitive in general

    it should be more structured and more intuitive so that 50+ year old teachers also know what they are doing (not a joke) and also so that it is clearer where to find everthing and one can find most Things by one klick and doesn't have to klick through 2 or 3 sub folder to find what one is Looking for.

  12. Have a more filtered "Assignments" page

    In the "Assignments" page, there should be a filter button so students can choose "Assignments due today," or "Assignments due tomorrow," so that instead of having to individually click each class to see the assignments, students can just filter out which assignments they do and do not need.

  14. Activity section


    1. Wanted to display completed works/tests/assgnments in a different color in the activity.

    Or the finished work should disappear and be displayed in a separate section. Unfinished one section and finished in another section.

  15. Adding an option for teachers only to see other students in the class, not the students to see other students

    Students are very reluctant to turn video on during Teams classes, but the feedback from students is they are more likely to turn video on if only the teacher can see them, not the other students. Schools are now trying to make turning on videos compulsory as it was optional before and students were not always present even when logged in. It also is quite distracting for students seeing all the students in video mode and trying to listen to teacher. There is another organisation that does offer this ability so I would like Teams to have this option too…

  16. This is for Assignments in Teams. Please could you make it easier for students to upload videos. Sometimes they can only use Chats. Please c


    1. Assignments - please make it easier for students to upload videos of presentations. It often doesn't work and they have to use Chats or whatsapp.


    2. Assignments - please introduce a feature whereby we can attach a scanned, marked rubric or test that we have marked offline or by hand, so that when we return the student's mark or grade, we can attach the rubric or marked test to the mark.

  17. calendar Add S-T-R & M-W for repeating the classes

    As our working days (classes) from Sunday-Thursday.
    it's necessary to have this feature in the calendar to repeat our classes.
    So, for example, make it available STR & MW. Or, make it available to select the desired repetition days.

  20. Access folders and documents shared with me in One Drive for uploading as an attachment to a channel

    A colleague and I have two sections of the same class. We created a shared room access calendar (and other shared documents). My colleague shared a folder with me on OneDrive. I want to upload the excel document from my OneDrive into this folder. When I click Save As, I can only see my own OneDrive folders as options. I am unable to see the folders that are shared with me.

    Similarly, in my class Teams account, I can only upload attachments from my own OneDrive folder, not the folders and files shared with me. This prevents us from working…
