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 assignments, I would also like to be able to do this via year group, students etc. In addition to this I'd like to be able to model the feedback time for individual and groups of teachers.
In England we have multi Academy trusts, where groups of schools come under the same leadership, so I would also like to be able to model this data trust wide as well for all schools, users, teams in my trust.
The real power would be if this could be modelled in powerBI so it could be presented to Principal's, trust boards etc.
This is coming—-please keep the feedback coming.

I agree fully with the descriptions here. I am currently adding myself to class teams to access individual student and whole class data. It is an impossible task with over 900 class teams.
Using an overarching Insights system would work well BUT it is important that not all staff get insight into all classes. We could apply this using an app setup permission policy.
Then, for the insights over all classes: we need to be able to filter by a teacher, or a student, or both, also a group of classes or a single class. We need to be able to track activity, assignments issued, assignments handed in, feedback trends.
Commenters have mentioned the need for PowerBI integration, but my opinion is that if the all-class-insights was implemented well enough, this might perhaps negate the need for direct PowerBI integration?

Great feedback -thank you!
We’re adding capabilities to the Insights app in Teams to help educational leaders understand the online activities and achievements of students. Within the Insights app, we’ll provide detailed visibility into digital learning activities so that leaders are better equipped to support educators and students. This is coming soon.
Heads of department (Maths, science, etc..) all want to see the insight analytics for their subjects (all classes that are maths based).
Also the head of year would like to see the UK take and usage for each year group.
With the COVID outbreak it would be really helpful for a view of uptake if students, and an inverted list (I.e: who has not logged in and engaged).
Platforms like show my homework have this and we can see at a glance how popular and used the system is with kids and teachers.
A simple list of teams with basic usage would be great, a powerBI template perhaps that we can tweak for our naming conventions?
