  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. insight

    I would like to see the Insights app added as a feature for the Staff Team. It would allow me to post PD in the form of videos or readings and see who has or has not engaged with the PD. Currently it seems that Insights in only in the Class Team.

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  11. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Monitor app volume

    We need a way to know that the student user is at least listening when the camera and mic are off. Too many students log in- won't turn on their camera and do not speak. Knowing if they could hear would be a benefit

  20. bulk download attendance reports

    Good job on upcoming changes to Insights. They will prove helpful!

    I'd like to bulk-download attendance reports for meetings in my channel.

    This would be a great enhancement so I can do my own data mining. :)
