  1. Teams Ownership levels system

    Having multiple teachers within teams but limiting their editing capabilities - have an owners levels system, they can see the information but can not edit it.
    I am a sports organiser and want to add information to all the teams and have the teacher who is responsible for the group to be able to add/delete information but there are also other teachers who share the group - I don't want them to be able to add/delete information.

  2. Jumping Files

    When in files and going back, it jumps back to the start or to another folder. Not just back a page.

  3. Note for teacher

    There should be a box where you can give a note to your teacher when you turn something in. Like you can give them a heads up if there is problem(like format or page order), without having to edit your document.

  4. New "Administration" or "Front Office" Team type

    As an administrator, I need to be able to communicate with the student body as a whole, and also to each student privately. It would be nice if I could get a Team that auto-populated a private channel for every email address with a student license type. For example, I could request a document be returned (all at once to the entire school) and track each student submission individually. Currently, I have to set the owners and members of each private channel manually. To have a Team type that generated these private channels and assigned owners and members automatically would…

  6. I don't like something

    I don't like the new version of the "Assignments tab" because its buggy and I'd like the old version better because it highlighted the assignments which made it easy for me to see what i need to do.

  7. Add the title of the team to the top of the main window, please!

    Please add the name of the team that you are currently working with to the top of the main body of the screen near the "< Back" navigation button or the name of the channel. As a specialist teacher, I belong to over 47 teams. It is quite easy for me to not understand which of those teams I am currently operating within, especially when the left column listing the teams is hidden because of the window size or if that list is scrolled above or below the team that is highlighted. Teachers and students can easily get lost in…

  9. Improve the Feedback Facility

    Like chat, allow other teachers to see who is writing in the Feedback box. Prevents 2 teachers giving feedback to the same pupil at the same time.

  10. User to have the choice of deleting or saveing the entire conversation history without it being save on an external cloud for privacy neeeds

    For Privacy needs the user should have the right to either save or delete their entire conversation on Teams! the fact that we cant do that nor know where the conversation is being saved can open legal battles between Microsoft and the users/multiple large cooperate organization as this is an invasion of privacy and access to confidential information.

  13. New feature for teachers

    Hello,

    I am using Teams with OneNote for Classroom for my teaching (I am a teacher in a high school). I allow myself to suggest to add a new feature to Teams.

    It would be very useful, after that a meeting has ended, to have the possibility to see the list of the members who were presents at this meeting. In addition, it would be great that this list can be sorted by either "name", "first name", "time when the member has joined the meeting", and "time (duration) of participation" at the meeting. This would allow teachers to check the…

  14. Make sure that ONLY teacher can mute participants.

    Today, in dysfunctional classes, students are muting oneanother. Teams is then a platform for herassment and in effect useless for school use!

  16. Bring back the old assignments tab

    Why did they change the assignments tab? I'm sure there is a reason behind it, and I'm sure many people are also asking the same thing. It was so handy to see all of my assignments and their due date, but now I have to go through every single team. It's less efficient, and I'm missing due dates because of it. There is no point the new menu how it is now, we might as well just go to the team itself and look there.
    Please stop making unnecessary changes, there is a lot else wrong with Teams that should…

  18. Access new channels via general channel

    When a new channel is created, rather than just a notification saying that it has been created appearing in the general channel, there should be the option to view the new channel.
