  2. primary

    For elementary school students, it would be good if the function to create chat groups could be disabled. However, 1:1 chat must remain possible to communicate with the teacher. Thank you!

  3. It would be wonderful to be able to Chat message a parent contact concerning their child.

    It would be wonderful to be able to communicate with a parent/guardian contact using Teams. That way, all communication would be off one platform. For example, many times students submit assignments with no attachment. When parents look at the assignment list, it shows that a specific assignment is completed, however there is no attachment. I usually message the student in the Chat feature, but I have to go to a different platform to message the parent/guardian. I love the grouping feature on the Chat messaging, and think it would work incredible if I could also use it with students and…

  4. The ability to change names from someone's perspective

    If the full name of someone was "Bob Ross" this feature would allow for people to change contact names to for example "Bobbie" Because some people change their names for personal reasons.

  7. Remove Hide Feature for Students

    Admin should have the ability to prevent students from hiding their chats. As admin, we often come across things we wish we knew before that are hidden in chats. If there was a way to prevent hiding chats, that would benefit us all.

  9. Please add a mode where people cannot know if you read their messages

    People cannot know if you read their message or are typing, somewhat of a private mode. For anyone that might feel uncomfortable about someone knowing that the teacher knows they have read a message.

  17. Notification when someone comments in teams

    There can be a feature in teams that when someone replies to your comment or when anyone posts a comment in the team then you get a pop up that a new comment has been made or someone has replied to your comment. Right now, I have to keep checking my teams app when it is minimized if I have a new comment. If there is some sound or a pop up then it will be useful.
    Thanks

  18. Stop Covering Live Chat With Notifications of the Live Chat.

    Every time I join a meeting on the desktop version of Teams, the same issue occurs. If I submit a message in the live chat feature, I have "joined the conversation". So then if someone else posts a message in that Teams meeting live chat I get a huge notification covering the entire right half of my screen. These notifications are relentless and will always appear, even over the top of the live chat. So you can't see the message because it is covered up by the notification that there is a message.

  19. Drag a post into a thread.

    Please provide a way to move/fix posts (and chats) that should have been created as a Reply to an existing thread. If someone just posts "Thanks" below the thread that was referenced, wouldn't it be nice if an Owner or recent post creator could drag that post back into context?

  20. Provide an option for notices about changes, updates, and new assignments to be sent via Chat or Email.

    Students don't look at Channel Posts. There is too much information and they can't be bothered to sift through the whole thing to find what they need. Posts are also "buried" within each Team, which means that they won't see a new post unless they go in and look for it.

    I'd like the option to post notices about Assignments to students in Chat. They look at Chat regularly and I've found it very helpful. Putting select notices in Chat also allows for immediate dialogue about an assignment if they have questions.

    I know I can create a Chat that…
