  1. Monthly attendance report automatically marked according to the duration attended each day

    School teachers face a lot of difficulty in marking attendance for students. Some students drop in or out in between the class. Even though the attendance report lets us know about it, it is very laborious job to identify it after every class.

    There should be a feature in which the monthly attendance report should be generated following points mentioned below: -


    1. There should be a list of all the members in the the class (in the team) which will come out in an excel/ csv file in row A and the following rows will have dates for the entire…

  4. Insights missed assignments interface

    The new insights shows you missed assignments. But it does not show you which student you missed and you can't go to them directly from that page. Please link assignments into the new missed assignments category of insights.

  6. Presenter view

    As the presenter, I would like to see the participants video along the bottom of the screen (same view that the participants have). Also, can not see hands raised as the presenter.

  7. Monitoring Communication Activity within a meeting

    Within the 'Communication Activity' tab, have Insights add analytics for posts, reactions, hands up etc when writing in the sidebar chat of meetings. This is the way our students ask and answer questions in 'live lessons'.Also,if it could monitor how much they have their mics on (rather than on mute) this could give a good indication of comparison of which students contribute more/less than the average.

  8. Profile Photo

    It would be really cool if I could upload a profile photo instead of getting a message saying "There was a problem saving the photo. Please try again."

  9. More than 1 question in a quick form

    When you add a quick form to a post we need to be able to add more than just 1 multiple choice question. Look at what Polly does and add the ability to ask multiple questions and different types of questions.

  10. Explore Discord for improvements.

    A Discord feature right click on a participant and increase/decrease participant's voice volume. this helps for loud talkers or soft talkers.

  11. Email Tab

    It would be helpful to have an email tab (similar to the calendar or chat tabs) so we would not have to toggle between Teams and Outlook.

  14. I AM BEGGING YOU TO CREATE A FUNCTION THAT ALLOWS ME TO TRACK THE STATS OF EACH LEARNER'S ATTENDANCE EACH MONTH.

  15. Integrate Excel with Teams for Attendance

    Being a student our first 10 mins get wasted in attendance as faculty has to call out all names and mark our attendance. India we have 100 students in one session, so its too hectic.

    Its gonna be great, if Teams team can integrate, Excel with it and can fetch data for all people who have joined the meeting. If possible fetch as per present date and time, Its gonna be helpful for saving time and increase efficiency.

  17. Covid - 19

    British Education System
    Covid-19
    As a school we are trying to respond to the current and future impact that this virus is having on our daily operations. As we move closer to the examinations season, this situation could have a drastic impact on our young people’s future.

    At the moment, we are making use of Teams and OneNote to teach pupils who are self-isolating because of recent travel. Dealing with small numbers of pupils’ needs is relatively simple, but what we might well see soon is enforced school closures. I can see that Teams and OneNote will allow us to…

  18. Hide phone number in profile

    I feel unsafe with the fact that my personal number is easily accessible on my profile on Teams. I've had friends who were contacted by random people with this reason. Really appreciate if there was a feature to hide my number or even just not have it displayed at all.

  19. Generate attendance lists automatically

    Staff are forgetting to download and send registers in following each lesson, sometimes to export takes time, does not arrive or is in an unreadable format.
    Can the file be generated and sent to a specific email address or saved in a folder automatically? This would save much time and avoid inaccuracies.
    I have used Insights and it is great for analysis of user activity over time. However, I have seen discrepancies between numbers on registers generated and those on the Insight lists. Insight’s have been lower.
    I am looking for the quickest, easiest, most accurate option as I am…

  20. Reports for multiple class pages

    Please can you consider adding an ‘export to Excel’ option for the Insights snapshot view or the full reports of multiple Teams class pages?
    Many organisations require a top level dashboard/ report for admins to view activity on multiple pages at once.
