  1. Create a "Front Page" wherein the school admin could post announcements.

    When wee launch Teams, it would be nice to be taken to a page that has a place for the School Administration to post school-wide announcements. It would also be nice if when the student clicks on the particular class team, there were a similar page for the teacher's announcements separate from the multiple posts & alerts: this gets extremely cluttered very fast.

  4. Dropping assigned shift instance

    I would like to be able to allow student workers on shift to drop a single shift instance for coverage by their peers. This function would be similar to an "offer", but would be a broad call to all peer workers for coverage when unable to work a shift for any reason.

  9. Gendergerecht und modern

    Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
    ich benutze seit einigen Wochen Teams für Fernunterricht an einer Bonner Schule. Negativ auffällig ist, dass alle Personenbezeichnungen auf dieser Plattform nur in der männlichen Version (Lehrer, Schüler ...) vorliegen. Damit ist Microsoft inzwischen einige Jahrzehnte hinter den politisch-gesellschaftlichen Standards hinterher. Wie soll ich als Politiklehrer diese Seite von Microsoft meinen Schülerinnen und Schülern anders als negativ darstellen?
    Weiterhin stört mich der autoritäre Ton in der Bezeichnung "Anweisungen" in Assignments. Das entspricht nicht flachen Hierarchien und modernem Personalmanagement. Besser wäre hier z.B. "Aufgaben" oder "Anleitungen".
    Ich bitte Sie um entsprechende Änderungen, ja, ich verlange diese,…

  10. Confusing

    Overall is a very confusing program/app.
    I'm always looking where things are. If you jump to a different item like a conversation it becomes difficult to understand how to get back to the meeting.
    Very confusing.
    Luckily I do not have to use much, as it is a imposition of school.

    Also one more direct item that should be more visible is if you have the mic on or off. There should be a "always on" microfone red or green (for ex.).

  12. teams

    There are a couple of things about teams from a teaching perspective that i find slightly frustrating


    1. The fact that any member of my class can start a meeting without me being there...I think that in a school setting I would like to control when the class starts and not have my students who are children up to 18 years of age commencing without me being present. (Zoom doesnt allow this)


    2. There is no waiting room feature (Zoom has this)


    3. Students can remove other students from the room and mute others microphones


    on the other hand i am liking the…

  18. Equation editor in Teams Wiki

    The wiki tab is a great tool, but not have the ability to add equations limits its capabilities. Microsoft has a done a passable job of learning from LaTeX and it would be great if that functionality could be included in the wiki.

  19. Talk to each other and more participants in steam

    I would like to know if you can make it more than 3 x 3 like 10 x 10
    ´cause in my class room we are 58 and we cant see each other.
    maybe you can help us to communicate with each other ´cause in my school they disable that function to chat privately or to create teams.
