  2. 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

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

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

    This should allow me to say in this TEAM this member has been part of 40% of all the calls made during this month. they have submitted X amount of assignments in each month. That is all. thank you soo much!

  10. reporting

    Reporting a student (for various reasons, behaviour and Academics mainly) to the teacher in charge of discipline?

    Preferably Academics (No H.W.) is reported under assignments in the individual’s screen and behaviour is reported under Manage Team/members. When the name of the student is selected you get the teacher in charge of discipline for that year group and the guardians' contacts automatically to be selected if needed.

    Moreover, when reporting behaviour issues the choice of selecting multiple students for the same report should be an option.

    This is e.g. of another system.

  11. Add-On to Track Student Attentiveness

    I am teaching my whole school timetable as live lessons on Teams and one of the main difficulties is knowing whether students are paying attention. I have written a detailed spec for a Teams Add-On which would allow teachers to monitor and improve attentiveness during Teams lessons. It's based on a one or two click system for sending a quick preset "check in" question (like "are you still here" or "have you opened the worksheet") to all students. The Add-On would then track how quickly students respond and what their response was and create an "attentiveness" score for each student…

  14. Data & Feedback from a range of assignments

    When looking at the list of assignments at student has completed over a a time period, would there be a way to also integrate the grades and feedback given for those assignments?

    This will be useful for having meetings with parents and students, as the data could be pulled up and we can give an immediate overview of their progress over time, and identify any areas where intervention is necessary.

  19. Stop automatic reset of user settings

    On school computers that reset every night, we are unable to change the settings that allow for carryover to the next day. This is not a user-friendly feature. The Automatic start slows down the process of getting ready to use the computer when not using Microsoft teams. Several classmates complain about the feature. Please allow for changes to settings to be more permanent or don't offer them.
