  3. Let users delete their replies and chat messages, and be allowed to leave a team

    Sometimes we say something we would rather take back. Please let users delete replies and chat messages and leave teams they don't want to be part of. Situations could arise that could have been avoided and it's frustrating.

  5. Allow most recent activity to appear at the top of the Team feed.

    Having the oldest post be at the top of the Team feed is counter intuitive and annoying. Who needs to be reminded of the very first post every time they open the Team page? I want to see the most recent activity. PLEASE make this happen. I have not seen a reasonable justification for why it's not an option (or the default for that matter).

  7. Make it so that members can't kick others in a meeting, because other students keep kicking others out as a joke.

    Make it so that members can't kick others in a meeting, because other students keep kicking others out as a joke. Only teachers, or the person who started the meeting should be granted that access.

  8. Tabs/Windows

    It would be SO helpful if you could open multiple "tabs" or "windows" within the Teams app, or simply open Teams in more than one window. That way, when going to Chat and back, or between Teams, you wouldn't have to go to "drafts" and re-find your place.

  9. Allowing Students to Share Multiple Screens

    It would be nice to have options for educators to be able to view students and their screen at the same time. For instance, if I wanted to proctor a students test, it would be nice to be able to see their face while testing and see the test on screen. This way we can confirm that students are unable to cheat in certain ways, including having someone else take the test for them or be looking up the answers while testing.

  12. Clear Cache (Please vote)

    (Use of the link is given at the end of the article)

    By https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/users/2323166872-microsoftuser1,

    It would be nice if we have an option of "Clear Cache" in Microsoft Teams! Sometimes the desktop app is filled with cache and to remove it we need to sign out and sign back in. It's a long process and if we are doing some work, it gets disappeared and if we are in a meeting we are thrown out! So by pressing this "Clear Cache" option the app will clear the cache in background and we would also not lose our work. Likewise…

  13. Allow teachers to turn the microphone on and off as needed during a video conference

    As a preschool teacher using Teams for video conferences, I wish to have control over the microphone access. It will be easy if I could turn on the microphone when I need the student to give an answer.

  16. Test Call

    Add a test call feature for teachers new to the technology or having issues with the technology. This would allow teachers to play with features or ensure their webcam/microphone/screen sharing is functioning properly without actually having to be on a call.

  17. please make the app light

    The teams app is too heavy for an average computer/mobile phone. The app takes too much ram and cache memory and the mobile/mobile begins to hang,so much in fact that my computer has crashed a few times and i had to restart it even though my computer has 4 GB RAM . A few of my friends are also having this problem on their android phone

  18. Attendance Report viewing future is best to give in teams App for every Individual

    In school level in addition to teachers and school management, every parent should know how frequently his/her child is attending the classes then only they can take care, guide, motivate and enquiry them why they didn't attend the classes in regular bases (if required). so better to give attendance report viewing option to every individual of their own attendance report by day wise and also give option to admin to see every one attendance report through Admin login.

  19. Team consumes Data very heavily unlike Zoom

    Whenever we log in Microsoft Team heavily consumes data. 2 hours of class takes away almost 2GB data. Zoom consumes very less data
    may be 300 mb for 3 hours class. Please look into this.

    Further, Please Provide better control features so tht students can be controlled with reference to privileges granted to them during class
