  2. Being able to block people on Teams,

    Stop people from messaging you, because I constantly get messaging like from younger students, I want to be able to block them, and also be able to text them when I WANT TO.

  5. The ability to turn on and off the chat! For all teams meetings.

    We need to be able to turn the chat on or off during all teams meetings. Students are using the chat to bully and harass each other. It has become an extremely frustrating and distracting issue.

  6. Integrate email with Teams somehow. It is useful to send students calendar reminders, however, they don't check email to see the reminder.

    Integrate email into Teams. We often use meeting reminders on the Outlook calendar, however, most kids are not checking email. Adults are used to checking redundant sources for communication, however, students are not. It would be nice if meeting/class notifications and reminders could be re-routed to their individual chat.

  7. Problems with Setting up a Meeting for specific people in a Team

    More of my collages and I had the problem that when we wanted to schedule a meeting for specific people in a Team, the invitation went out to everyone in the team, despite of us painfully putting in all the names of the specific people we only wanted to invite. This was very embarrassing as it is a big module with 100+ people. We had to cancel this meeting and organize a chat group with the people we only wanted to invite and set up another meeting. I think that writing a warning before send it out the message/invite to…

  9. When typing in the "chat" can you remove the bubble of someone else's comment?

    Other peoples' bubbles/comments appear over the top of what you are typing during meetings, so you can't see/edit yours at the same time. Perhaps the bubble could appear at the top of the "chat", rather than the bottom? This is when you are viewing the chat on the side of the video streams....

  10. Names on Large Gallery

    The names on Large Gallery cover the students' faces if the students are seated lower than their screens. Moving the names to the top of the picture would help.

  11. For class settings, you should create a banner option for teachers to post at the top of the meeting. This would give students and observer

    It would be helpful if I could control a banner across the top of the class meeting that would communicate what was happening in each section of class. It could serve as a reminder to students and a compass for administrators and other observers, giving context to the moment.

  12. Bring back the private chat feature

    Allow students to create chats outside the meeting, this was a very helpful feature that worked very well for collaboration, asking questions about homework and assignments, etc.

  13. Often when I am in a call I get push notifications from the chat that I am already viewing on screen. This is very annoying and distracting.

  17. After adding a team, auto create an e-mail group based on the team's membership

    If you want to e-mail everyone in the team, you have to enter each member individually. It would be great if there was an auto create of an e-mail group of the whole team when creating a new team.

  18. So today during my math class, my math teacher dissabled the private chats.

    So basically today during my class, my teacher disabled the private chats. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with this, but today I do. I have very close friends on teams that got ABSOLUTELY NO notice that I couldn't talk to them. I understand how many people get distracted and off task because of teams chatting, but is there any way that could still chat but it wouldn't be so disctracting ONLY if I'm in class, otherwise I could get as many chats as I want lol :). Thank you and I do hope that you can consider this option.

  20. Banner notifications are blocking chat typing and send functions - please fix

    When banner notifications pop up, they block whatever is being typed in chat, etc. as well as the Send button. I need these notifications, but could you please have an option for where on the screen they're located (or have them moved somewhere more practical)? E.g. lower-left corner. Having them stack more tightly would also be really helpful...these things are overwhelming. Is there a way to dismiss all of them at once? Thanks!
