  1. Accumulated score without the need to manipulate the excel file

    It would be very useful to know the points accumulated per student and the total possible points. It is too cumbersome to download the Excel file and start filtering the score of each activity to make the total sum of points and, furthermore, it is too difficult to know what the total points awarded to all activities are. Thus, if there were 30 activities during a school term and the total of points is 4550, it is too laborious: 1) to know the final score (4550) without having to download the Excel file and find the maximum score for each…

  2. Need option that can switch record modes from organizer to participants.

    Need option to switch record modes. Organizers should have the option to easily control who end up on recordings for meetings. Its not always that you need 9 faces on the screen especially as a teacher I need to have recordings that I can share with students if they missed my session with only me as the presenter on the screen. There should be some type of toggle that should easily control the outgoing recorded video.

  3. Pin Posts in Channel

    Enable posts to be pinned within a channel, so that the pinned post is the first one seen when a member goes to that channel.

  4. Be able to rotate and zoom in on images submitted in the assignments tab

    When students upload images of their work under the assignments tab, make it possible for the teacher to be able to rotate and zoom in on the image within Teams. Without having to download it to their computer.

  5. Prevent student from leaving a class team

    We should be able to lock Team / Office 365 group in such way that students can't leave the team.

    This needs to be considered from both an IT-pro as well as team owner perspective

  6. Attendance list

    When downloading the attendance list, it would be nice if the first and last name were separated into their own column. This would allow the teacher to sort by either first name or last name making it much faster and easier to take attendance. This would allow for more instruction time with the students as every minute is important.

  7. All assignments at a glance

    Instead of having to search for the assignments in each subject, it would be useful to have a list for the students of all the future deadlines of the assignments (In a chronological order), so they can see at a glance what they need to do next.

  8. Record the whiteboard during a live meeting

    During a live Teams meeting, you can use the Whiteboard, but it doesn't record. For classroom purposes, this makes it difficult for students who go back to watch the lesson later. They can't see what was done on the Whiteboard.

  9. Add the option to flip the camera (normal rather than mirror-image) to show hard copy documents the right way round

    Be able to choose the camera mode so it gives you mirror image (which is the default), or flip it to 'normal' view so that if you have to make reference to a hard copy document or a whiteboard behind you, the writing isn't backwards!

    Thank you for your continued feedback, the team is currently planning for this work. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    Note: Your meeting attendees receive a non-mirrored video including the image of you and any text, whiteboards, etc. The image and video in your Call Monitor screen is shown to you only, as if you were looking in a mirror.

  10. Delete past Team chats in chat mode (both sender and receiver chats).

    Chats should not be never-ending storage of a chat, and we should be able to delete individual chats as instructors or keep them ( both the sender and receiver chat). I realize we can delete our own, but we need the option to delete both our own as well as the students. We should have that option.

  11. Breakout Room timer

    I would like to see a timer that can be added to a channel. This would help manage the time when participants are in a breakout room.

  14. Lower all hands with a single click

    A button to lower all raised hands in a meeting like the "mute all" button mutes all microphones.

  15. I really need a class calendar! This way my whole class would be able to quickly see what is coming up for the month or view important dates

    If my class could see one calendar that I control, it would help the students and the parents stay on track.

  16. Use a group tag to assign an assignment

    In order to assign differentiated tasks or a task to an individual class in a team with multiple classes, we should have the ability to use a Tag to select students instead of having to select them all individually.

    This will also mean that if we need to assign assessment notifications and task to the cohort:
    - one teacher can quickly create the tasks for each class individually
    - each classes teacher and then monitor their class and quickly chase up who hasn't viewed/ submitted items by set dates without having to scroll through all of the students.
    - once…

    Thank you for your feedback. This feature is under development and is planned for later this year. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    In the meantime, you can try using the keyboard shortcut to toggle mute (Ctrl+Shift+M). For more information on keyboard shortcuts, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/keyboard-shortcuts-for-microsoft-teams-2e8e2a70-e8d8-4a19-949b-4c36dd5292d2.

    You can also follow status on the main UV forum at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18837436. Thanks!

  18. Attach file to feedback (screen recording, video)

    I often provide video feedback to my students using a screenrecording app. It would be good if I could attach this file to the feedback, rather than emailing it separately.

  19. Submitting of a task on a restricted network

    Can Microsoft make it possible to let users deliver tasks on a restricted network (when taking tests/exams) while access to chat/files (and such) in the Teams app still is restricted/unaccessable?

  20. Upload files to multiple channels at the same time

    When posting a message please allow us to upload a file to multiple channels.
    Currently if you attach a file to a message you can only post it to one channel. Many teachers are responsible for multiple classes in the same grade. Having to go and upload a file to each team and channel one by one is very time consuming.
