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 happy to announce the general availability of this feature for Windows, Mac & Mobile devices.

The edge of the attendant's screen should light up with a green light for a hand raise.
Pls add a "hand raised" feature. We recently switched form zoom to MS Teams. We really like MS teams but are missing this feature. Thanks

Top priority - most important and needed feature is hand raise signal to speaker.
I have been asked by high school and college faculty how to do this. They all desperately need it. I need it too as a IT professional now using it to work from home.
This is a feature request on behalf of a school (in Kirkland, Wa, USA) who is conducting remote learning via Teams and OneNote as well.
When I was discussing with my daughter about her remote learning experience, she mentioned the worst part, is not able to have a "participation" experience similar to the in classroom experience. Students are graded on class participation.
The students cannot "raise hands" and attract the teachers attention in realtime. The students type in the chat but it takes time for the teacher to notice while she/he is presenting the class (monitoring of the chat window needs to be done by a another person in the same room with the teacher so that the interruption is timely"
1. class + teacher connects via Teams to "class" meeting
2. teacher presents content
3. Students want to ask a question, but they cannot just "unmute" and start talking.
4. student types in the question in the chat window, but the presenter is not able to notice it in time, and moves on.
