  1. Warning Message for Deleting a Team

    Please integrate a pop-up message when an owner tries to delete a Team. In an education setting, sometimes administration and teachers are transferred from one school site to another. We have seen multiple occasions where an owner will transfer to another school site and they will delete a Team thinking that they are deleting the Team from their Team list. As you can imagine, this can cause many issues and some downtime until the Team can be restored. Perhaps in the pop-up their can be some verbiage similar to: "Deleting "Team name" will delete all material and all other owners…

  2. For gosh sake, make it possible for Mac users to share sound from the computer/Youtube/whatever source!

    Mac users can't share sounds from the computer. Voice works fine, but I need to play sound files for music class, Come on, this cannot be a difficult fix!

  4. Make Teams App available on Amazon Fire Tablet

    Make the Teams App available on the Fire tablet to support home learning.

    As lots of students are learning at home, many of them will have a Fire Tablet only and will allow them to participate in work created by Teachers on their personal tablet.

  6. MacOS notifications?

    Please could you implement notifications at the OS level on Mac? Then the app will respect system-wide settings and I won't miss most notifications.

  7. Allow users to login from multiple accounts

    It would be really helpful if you enabled us to add multiple accounts on pc. I know this feature already exists on mobile and it would be really helpful if you did this on pc too. This is because multiple logins often ask for codes to ensure that the account is safe and then it gets really hectic.
    Thanking you in anticipation

  9. Tasks in Teams

    I have a problem with Teams, how it provides feedback of Information; that there will always be a green tick that misleads my students to believe that the task is approved. But its not! Whether I mark the task 100% or 0% correct, it becomes a green check mark as a marker, as it is when its aproved. I want a better feedback for unsuccessful submissions. Is it possible to change this highly misleading feedback?

  11. Enable applying policies to groups

    When Teams was administered within settings, it was simple to control by licence type. Now that Teams admin has moved to its own admin centre, the ability to apply policy to a group is gone and the only option is to apply to individuals. This is too onerous. Permissions for groups is the cornerstone of security so why remove that option for Teams. Please provide a group option for applying policies.

  13. Group students in classes so when they send a message, we can see what class they are from

    I have over 100 students a day. I have met them once face to face. It is VERY hard to remember which student is from which class when they send a message. Can we please have a way to group them? Even a color coded icon would work. Anything to help us stop saying "what class are you in?"

  16. Integrate To-Do into Teams

    It would be great if To-Do could be integrated between Teams and Outlook so you can have a cohesive list of Tasks in one place across multiple different working Teams

  17. Mute chat notification pop ups while in a meeting

    while in a meeting and people are typing in chat you get a pop up notification which covers up the text box for the chat, this gets very annoying as i'm not able to use the text chat when other people are also typing. i would like there to be a function where you can block/mute/turn off these useless and bothersome pop ups and im sure many people would appreciate if this was fixed

  19. Teacher Mode - Students See Only Teacher But Not Other Students

    There should be a "teacher mode" where the teacher can see the students, and the students can see the teacher, but the students CANNOT see each other. Sometimes it's great for students to see each other and interact and socialize and feel a classroom vibe.

    But other times, it's very distracting for students to see each other. And sometimes students don't want other students to be able to see them or their home environment (i.e. for socioeconomic inequality reasons).

    The tech seems to already be in place to "turn on" this feature, and I think teachers would love the option,…

  20. Would it be possible to have a Lock Mode whenever you have a quiz?

    During remote learning, we use online tools to create and facilitate exams. In my case I use MS Forms for my formative and summative assessments. To avoid plagiarism and opening of other tabs (like google) when taking an exam, I think it would help that there is a LOCK MODE in MS Teams to avoid students from opening tabs or other channels.
