  1. Group calendar visible in Teams with Calendar Tab in Teams

    I see that a group calendar shows up in Outlook online when a group is created in Teams. Could this calendar be accessible directly from Teams?

    The team is making progress on showing Office 365 group calendars in Teams. We will share more details as we have them.

    Meanwhile, feel free to share what types of meetings do you create in the group calendars for classes and staff?

  2. Multiple accounts

    I use Teams in two different organizations. In the apps, I have to log out and log in every time I want to switch. Is it possible to use two or more different accounts in the, like in Outlook?

  4. Add paste image, text box, drag and drop, zoom in or out to the Whiteboard in Teams

    The Whiteboard would be more useful with the ability to: 1) paste an image or anything onto the whiteboard. 2) insert a text box, 3) move what's on the whiteboard to a different area on the whiteboard, 4) zoom in or out

  5. Notification Enhancements

    We have moved back to using Skype as the notification for Chat is not customizable. Staff that use Team for chatting, miss incoming messages, compared to Skype. I want to push the use of Team, but this factor renders the app useless.

  6. Use insights to measure the activity on Class Notebook.

    We have insights installed but it does not currently show us when children access the class notebook. This would help a great deal to see who is accessing the work. We can see they have been onto Teams if they look at files or post but no record of class notebook access.

  8. Analysis and insights

    Insights is good at a classroom level however it would be great to get similar data at a school and trust wide level..
    As a director of digital learning I would like to be able to run insights style analysis via the teams admin console to a far greater depth than the current analysis allows. I would like to be able to be able to see things like how many teachers and which office 365 accounts have set teams up, be able to group them via subject and then look globally at assignments set, hand ins, latest, time spent on…

  9. It would be helpful to have recorded meetings transcribed for future use to make them accessible to users with disabilities.

    After a meeting is recorded, it would be helpful to have a transcription of the recording for users who have hearing issues. Teams meetings are often used for later training, and access is limited for those who might be hard of hearing.

  10. Expanded Insights for Across All Teams

    Insights is great at Team level for teachers, but not so good for Middle or Senior Leaders to view trends across year groups/ subjects etc.
    I would like to see a version of Insights (or some alternative analytics option) that allows specific colleagues to view this data across multiple Teams. Perhaps even a linked Power BI file that draws on that data for the tenancy.

  11. Poor translations need to be improved

    The language in translated versions of Teams should be proofread by qualified humans. The button "schedule" that must be clicked to post tasks in the future has been autotranslated to "tidsplan" in Norwegian, which is a correct translation of the noun "schedule", but it makes no sense in a context which requires a verb. A human would spot this.

  12. Very Bad Translation

    In MS Teams Assignments translates do Tarefas in Portuguese (Wrong! )
    In MS Teams Tasks (Planner) translates to Tarefas in Portuguese (Ok)
    Gradebook translates to Notas
    Notes (In OneNote) translates to Notas

    Please hire a human to do these translations.
    Please hire a teacher to make it coerent.
    It's going to be a mess in Portuguese when you integrate ToDo with Tasks, Planner and Assigments.

  13. Profile Photos in Assignments

    Student profile photos\avatars currently do not show in the Assignments area. Would be great if they did like the Conversations area.
