  1. Create an option to schedule chat messages.

    Have an option for chat messages to be scheduled and sent automatically at a time and date desired by the sender. I study on weekends and midnight, questions arise but I can't send them because teachers don't want to be disturbed. I'll have to wake up early after a late study session. I hate it.

  2. Why did I get banned from my chat even when I was the owner? And why can't I call?

    Hello, I am the owner of a chat, and I got banned/kicked. And for some reason, Also when I wasn't banned and I was trying to call, I couldn't. Is it because there is too much people? How do I re-enable it? What the ****, Microsoft? Fix this now.

  5. Private Chatting and Calling with Teachers

    It would be great for Students to Private Message and Call Teachers through Microsoft Teams, not students to communicate but just Teachers.

  7. Make the @ mention function available in individual chats

    This will enable me to link my students with other lecturers without being part of their ongoing conversation. It will also make it easier for the student to contact the lecturer mentioned as they can just click the link.

  8. Editing a post I wrote on desktop on my iOS app

    Made a mistake while typing a posting in a team channel or chat on your desktop PC and found out about it while reading the post again on your iOS device? Too bad, you can’t edit it in your mobile, you have to go back to your PC to do it. That is a bit inconvenient.

  9. Show the a Person's Status While Being Mentioned

    Sometimes, I am mentioning someone, but want to know their status first, but instead, I have to send a message with them mentioned and then check their status in the message just to find out that they are away! That is why I would appreciate Teams showing not only a person's status message when they are being mentioned, but their status itself.

    Thank you.

  10. For Chat on Teams, it would be great if you could see who is typing during a group chat. With the 3 bubbles or any other way.

    Make it obvious in a group chat that someone is typing. Using the bubbles or otherwise. I’m finding in a group chat with students there are lots of posts going up at cross purposes or my students think that I am not answering them because I might be typing a long answer it seems like I’m doing nothing!

    To have a thumbs down response that you can give to messages, along with the thumbs up, laughter emoji, surprise emoji, sad emoji and the anger emoji.

  12. 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!

  13. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.
