Reporting and analytics tool
Teams would need a reporting tool to see, for example, the assessment of a pupil's school year view. At the same time, it could even get a graphical view. This would be a really good improvement and a much desired feature of teachers. For further development, this could predict the student's school success. I mean, therefore, learning analytics. Third party payments are already payable. If Microsoft were to make their own, Teams would overwhelm all electronic learning environments at this time. For such, we have a strong demand in Finland. Finland is one of the model of education and we are pioneers in this field.

I think of. First, Teams need an essential stat-reporting tool; I used teams to deliver internal training materials to our team members.
Our team members spread across multiple campuses and office sites, and it is not possible to monitor their activities directly; I selected Teams primarily because it is already integrated with the Outlook, for delivering confidential training materials, and it also integrates well with Stream.
However, both Teams and Streams lack (heavily lacking) the basic analytics tool, even a manual one, for me to monitor uptake and usage behaviour; which both critical for passive feedback. I don't want to survey our users for every aspect and everything; the system should be able to give me basic reports, e.g. frequency of use, hit count, hit count distributed against time/day/location.
I saw that you already have by device report, but the reports only available to global admin; why is that? I don't want to ask my self to be made as a global admin, too much responsibility, and I am not part of the IT Services. I am fully responsible for the implementation of this initiative in my department; any user should be able to be given access to the report functions; or maybe the Teams owner, automatically have access to its analytics function. I have the authority to even delete the team, why am I not able to see its reports?
I would argue these features are urgently needed to make Teams a serious tool; otherwise, everyone is kind to say it is good, but no data to support it; and we don't know what to improve.
Because AI is so important, it would be really valuable if we could build learning design feedback through capturing richer data about learner interactions with apps, content, activities. The current data from the Office 365 admin report is very limited - counts of chats, calls etc. Why not allow an Azure bot to do sentiment analysis on conversations? Why not give learners tips based on how they tackle a task. It would be good to be able to compare usage across different teams and analyse team sites in terms of features they use that promote active learning. It would be good to track participation in group activities. Can the Azure AI tools which can be applied to eg Twitter be applied to Teams?
