LaTeX math input
Allow LaTeX math input into the Teams interface for Education customers.
Currently Edmodo allows some simple LaTeX code (as complex as those that amsmath package recognises!)
Great suggestion for all STEM classes! I’ve moved this feature to ‘under review’.

I need Latex in Teams too! It isn't a complete tool for Engineering Education until it gets this feature.

I strongly agree. LaTeX support must be added to MS Teams, it's vital.

I would be using this a lot. My current workaround is generating images using actual *LaTeX (usually through pandoc) and then sending those. I wouldn't be surprised if >90% of the entire data MS Teams stores about me is just pictures, each describable in less than 100 characters of LaTeX code. Including something like KaTeX or MathJax really shouldn't be this complicated, should it?

Amplifying request: managing both classrooms and research teams using Teams requires LaTeX support. Without it, work is actively being hampered.

Vital feature as we move math courses to online instruction and use this to support student mathematical communication (higher education).

This was almost a showstopper for my class until I found a workaround before the feature is added:
Use an online equation editor, such as https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php to type the equation, and the copy and paste the image. Microsoft Teams does a good job in embedding/inlining the image (better than Slack).
Of course, the builtin support of the equation editor would be much better, so that you can edit/correct an equation inside Teams.

The lack of this feature is really the only reason I think I won't use Teams for my Fall courses.

This feature is too useful to ignore.

Please add LaTeX to MS Teams!

This is a nobrainer that should have been implemented years ago!

Amazingly helpful. I

Please add LaTeX math editors! The STEM teams I work with are struggling to fully engage with Teams and Forms in a way that is straightforward for students to process.

I'd appreciate the addition of latex support a lot.

Please add latex support.

Yes please! In case it helps, Slack has a "mathwithslack" package that uses MathJax from within electron, which seems like it might be useful...

This would be tremendously useful.
