  2. Message about student assignments

    There should be 2 buttons, one that says return and one that says graded.

    The fact I can't message a student about an assignment without having to hit return, because it says its graded. When you return it, it says graded, so students assume they're done and don't check the assignment. I want to be able to message the students about an assignment without it showing graded. Google classroom allows you to do this.

  3. teacher admin for classroom chat groups

    Is it possible to only allow teachers the admin to control chats? For example if I have created a group for my students, they should not have the access to be able to remove another member from the group or rename it.
    Maybe an option could be ticked when creating a new group - I am the sole admin for this chat or else I can select myself and another teacher for example

  5. Microsoft teams should develop a filter for the chat excluding messages that contain offensive language.

    The teacher may be exposed to offensive messages. The platform should develop ways to protect the professional by making a filter for the chat excluding messages that contain offensive language. Also the teacher should be able to mute the microphone permanently. Features like that make the calls safer for both the teachers and the students.

  11. Please show notifications of meetings

    Hi
    I am Joe, a student in India who is using Microsoft Teams through my dad's PC for studies. My new suggestion is that, it would be great if you could add a feature like giving notifications by a bot for an upcoming meeting, or a going-on meeting. Some people would always forget that there's a meeting. Many of them had been absent in most meetings, even though when they're online. That's why.

    Signed,

    Joe(a student)

  12. Remove Reactions in Teams for School

    I believe that by having reactions, it can lead to the same issues that exist on social media. Students shouldn't have to worry about getting enough likes on something that they post in a class environment. All reactions to posts should be removed to remove the negative reinforcements attached to getting "enough likes."

  13. Delete own message in chat box

    It would be nice to be able to edit and delete a chat message (in case you notice a grammatical error or message the wrong person/group)

  14. Private Chat

    You should make a private chat. But, instead of only privately messaging one person, you could privately message multiple people at the same time!

  16. Stop showing message notifications even if the chat box is on.

    Even if my meeting chat box is on, I keep getting message notifications, which covers my typing box. Also, when I click the text box to write something, and someone posts a message at the same time, I accidentally click on the message notification rather than the text box, which is very annoying, as it takes me to the homescreen, out of the meeting. I want the notifications to stay on, but not at those times when my meeting chat is on and I can actually see the messages.

  18. Collect badges

    I love the badges/praise stickers you can give kids/groups. It would be even better if the kids could collect them somewhere (maybe a portfolio). The icons could change every year so they are motivated over and over again.

  19. Move the "raise your hand" feature to show in the chat window.

    Move the "raise your hand" feature to show in the chat window instead of on the participant list. Currently we can only have one window open at a time so the presenter has the option to either miss the chat or watch the participant list for the "raise your hand" icon. I get that it pops up a notification on the center bar, but we still have to switch windows. It is clunky.

    Alternatively, allow both the "chat" window and the "participants list" visible stacked on the right hand side so we can track both without extra clicks.

  20. Teacher access to delete all posts

    It would be great if teachers could delete inappropriate posts made by students in the class Team. I would like to have students reply to the posts but when needed be able to delete the inappropriate comments.
