  2. Insights tab should record time spent on phone apps as well as the desktop app

    We’ve been using Insights to gather attendance data, but many of our kids use Teams on their phones. The Insights tab doesn’t display if students were in Teams on their phones, so Insights is giving us an incomplete picture of our attendance.
    Please let Insights record user time on the phone apps, too.

  3. Inserir a rede social Dialeticos, como alternativa para a promoção de debates com os estudantes.

    Sou professor no Estado do Mato Grosso, Brasil. Estamos usando a plataforma teams e gostaria de disponibilizar junto com a plataforma a rede social Dialeticos.

    A rede social Dialeticos (de minha autoria) foi criada no intuito de promover uma educação dialética para a era das relações virtuais. Com a advento da internet, se faz necessário uma educação que pratique os princípios da dialética, a saber, a busca das contradições do discurso e a escuta do contraditório. A rede usa um modelo de intereção que privilegia o debate, tendo o professor como mediador para que o raciocínio se desenvolva.

  4. Hello!! we would like to see many students/participants on either side of the screen while Screen sharing so as to have better control.

    We teachers have to do recapitulation and take short test to check the understanding of the lesson. It will be better if the questions asked by the teacher gets printed on the screen.

  5. Fix “All Time” to show more than the past 30 days

    Activity data is great but opening “all time” or custom RANGE would be immensely helpful at end of term reporting times. The data is there but cumbersome to locate as it has to be searched one date at a time currently. “All time” range only shows thirty days.

  6. Reaction Counter

    Thee should be a counter for every reaction that you send on a post. Whether it be a like reaction or a mad reaction. So you can see how many you've received and how many you've sent. It could be at the top of the page and there could be a little number next to each existing reaction.

  14. Include 'Rotate the Image' option while viewing Images

    It is very much needed, that we need a "Rotate the image" option while viewing images in MS Teams,
    In order to rotate the image - we have to download it, then go to the downloads file folder and then open the image and then finally rotate it, which becomes a tiresome process when we need to do our work fast in our current circumstances.
    Kindly, Resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
    Thank You.

  15. Ability to click links and QR codes on shared screen

    It would be great if a person shares their screen with a link or QR code displayed on a screen, the other participants can click the link without the need of the person to copy and paste it in the meeting chatbox.

  16. Need ability to automate the generation of Insights reports across multiple classes

    We would like to centralize and automate the generation of Insights activity reports each week. Ideally, this would generate a single report broken down by class showing activity. Today this has to be done by having a single person be added as owner to each class and then manually go to each team, choose a reporting period, export to Excel then combine the reports. Perhaps integrate this with Power Automate with Flows.

  19. Permissions and Presenter

    The presenter options have to be made easier. If a person is made presenter we may need to give certain petition to that person for eg to download the attendance. The option of going into the class too make a person presenter is tiresome and time consuming, if this opton is available while scheduling would be convenient

  20. Analytics on hand raised (How many times during a week)

    Teams is doing a great job at supporting learning and analysis of the learning sessions.
    With the insights to multiple factors of learning such as acitivity, posts, responses etc. , I would really suggest that the digital activity analysis should also include a feature which shows the number of times a student has raised his/her hand to respond during a specific week/month.
    This feature could clash with sometimes students wanting to go to bathroom / need to be excused for something. Here either again teams can bring up a solution of requesting a pass option or untill then teachers could…
