  1. Excel and Power Point apps freeze while editing

    HI there,

    As a team, we have noticed that MS applications like excel, power point start freezing when you edit the document while presenting. The document usually allows one-two edits, freezes and requires restart. Not sure if many people have come across this issue, but we definitely experienced it a lot. I'm talking about same person presenting and editing at this stage, haven't tested the ' one person presenting and another one editing' option. If we move to a different platform that allows video calling, presenting and editing at the same time - works fine.
    Thank you

  2. Allow a set download folder for different classes

    Allow a set download folder for different classes and an automatic download feature for assignments so that a student can simply go to that download folder and check if there are any updates, even while offline.

  3. Please add all the features available on laptop, onto iPad

    There are many features lacking on the iPad version... You can’t delete texts, and you can’t do many other options. Please implement them, as many students are using iPad teams, for school because of the virus.

  5. Share Screen change

    Please go back to the way the share screen option worked. Having to have everything open before you open a meeting is not effective. We move from class to class and have different directions for each class that are back to back. Please put it back!

  7. New Lite version or reduced ram usage

    I daily faced problems while attending my classes, because teams on an average consumes 800-900 mb of ram, which slows down my laptop and I have now switched to the web version which consumes a bit less ram but also has less features.
    I would love to see a new lite version of teams or a way to reduce its ram usage as it would be really helpful.

  9. Can you make the Microsoft Teams faster?

    Hi
    I am a student in India, who is using Microsoft Teams for studies. I decided to post this request because, a few weeks after I downloaded the Teams app, I noticed that the computer was slowing down. Then gradually, it came to a state like after signing in, it will take some time to respond. And most of the times, it even shows 'Microsoft Teams- Not Responding' on top of the window... Some apps in the PC I'm using (this is my Dad's PC(Windows 10 pro)) is also affected by this problem. Even the Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome…

  14. NEEDS A SWITCH PROFILE OPTION

    The app allows switching profiles for more than one kid. Desktop does not. Desktop needs 'switch profile' ability. Its pretty annoying to have to log in and out for this app. Families with multiple kids or users of this app shouldn't have to log out. Needs to have consistency with the app

  15. Better Document viewing

    The current method of viewing documents is actually not that good, as firstly, PEOPLE DON'T PUT THE ZOOM INTO A DROPDOWN that is HORRIBLE design practice. EVEN I DON'T DO THAT! Please also note that you guys might want your desktop app to be more dynamic. The reason why people download desktop apps is so that they can reduce the lag of receiving new files from the server every time they click a button. You might want to at least store a temporary cache somewhere in the C:// that you can put some old messages there, and when you click…

  16. Allow for use of white board (or a drawing feature) while sharing a file.

    In a classroom I can show a ppt on the screen and go to the whiteboard to make notes. It would be nice to be able to doodle or draw things out while still having the ppt visible to students.
