  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

    Including class notebook time and meetings in insights would give educators a better overall picture of student activity.

  10. PLEASE CREATE A FEATURE FOR ORGANISER TO TRACK WHEN SOMEONE REMOVES SOMEONE ELSE FROM MEETING. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FEATURE.

    In Insights we are able to understand student activities. Kindly incorporate a feature where Organiser of a meeting is able to find out from insights which participant removed someone else.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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…

  18. More attendance status like "someone removed other" in attendance list.

    Some teachers create meeting without marking the students as attendees. The students here can make chaos, and later can't be traced.

  19. Please include multiple teams (classes) in setting a scheduled meeting for us to monitor their online attendance

    I have weekly classes of two sections with the same time schedule. Every time I set meeting for our online classes, it is very hard for me include the second class and monitor their online attendance using Insights. Only one channel included in the meeting is well monitored using Insights, while the other section who only use link to join the meeting does not have meeting recorded. I hope this one be addressed.

  20. The Insight needs an option to generate a report with actual times (not a bar graph) of student interaction.

    While the bar graph has an indication of some participation, a report of a student's engagement and interaction in the Team would be greatly beneficial in applauding achievers and addressing attendance/work concerns.
