  1. Show more than 4 videos of multiple participants in a meeting/call and change video layouts in Team Meeting - ie, 5+1, 9+1, 2x2, 8+2 etc

    I would like to be able to see video from all participants in a meeting/ call at the same time. Currently in a Teams call, we can only see a few participants video stream even if there are many more on the call.

    We are working on supporting more than 4 videos in a Teams meeting. We don’t have a date to share or exact number of videos to support showing at once, but will update as we get closer to completion. Stay tuned!

    Feel free to share the # of students / videos you would need in comments.

  2. Please allow the upload of Folders. Not just a file.

    We would like to be able to move folders from other areas to the File section of Teams. To create a folder and then upload files to it is too much work, especially if we have several levels of folders within folders.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Raise Hands in Team

    The teachers in Hong Kong have been using Teams and OneNote to teach virtually at home during class suspension since early February. It’d be very useful if students are allowed to raise hands to ask a Q during meetings. So, teachers can be alerted and can provide instant feedback to individual students instead of being disrupted or not being aware of individual needs. Thank you very much!

    We are working on this feature, and will update again as we get closer to releasing. Meanwhile, feel free to share how you’d use the list for, and what information do you need in the list.

  7. 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.
