  1. Specify to which team the person with whom we exchange a message belongs

    We should be able to see which team a student belongs to when when a conversation starts (messaging) As a college teacher, I have like 120 students this fall. It's time consuming to keep track of/find this information as students, obviously, don't have any reason to mention it. I think it would be very helpful for every user, not only teachers but students also (each conversations would be identified with the teacher's name and class/team). Thanks!

  2. idea

    I have an idea about adding additional icons/emojis to the chat so that students may interact with understanding and emotions. Please see the attached file. The icons are explained and allow students to express metacognitive expressions.

  9. Fix Notifications

    I consistently see "phantom notifications" where I'm given red bubbles and numbers, but no new messages exist. It drives me nuts having unresolved notifications, so this is really bothersome.

  10. Doubt MS Really Cares, but you asked for feedback

    based on MS has lack of progress on request by tens of thousands of other users I doubt this will get any traction but you asked.

    Teams search is TERRIBLE! Even when searching for exact words or phrases that I know are in a channel or chat, search cannot find posts. Even when I'm LOOKING at a word in a conversation and try a search -- nada.

    Need ability to use custom notification sounds. A) the one and only hard-coded sound is quiet and easy to miss. B) I want to assign custom sounds to priority people, channels or conversations.…

  14. Have an option where students can make a private team themselves for group projects

    There should be an option where the students can make their own private server for stuff like group projects without the teacher making one for them

  16. In the chat function....The list of chats having the names bolded (not just a larger font) would be helpful to quickly scroll thru a list

    In the Chat Function, having the name bolded and not just larger or different font would be helpful when scanning to find the one you want
