  1. Student name search

    Frequently asked how a particular student is engaging and whilst insights helps is there a way to search a student name and get a list of assignments that have been not viewed, viewed and handed in but also handed in with no attached work. Students regularly hand in to make assignments disappear without actually submitting work. If a % engagement and a % of work submitted can be generated too this will help when writing results/reports about their online learning over all.

  3. Insites

    I was using Incites on Teams to keep track of the time students spend on assignments I give them. It becomes difficult to see the actual activity students spend on assignments with out having to go through all the days and find the time on the "time tracker" portion of Incites.

    On the drop down menu "All Activities" would there be a way to choose a specific assignment so I don't have to spend hours trying to track students time spent on assignments? At present it only gives you assignments in general to look at. Thanks!

  4. Class Teams digital activity download

    School will like to see student activities weekly/monthly and keep track of it. Is there any way to automate and download it? Right now owner/teachers have ability to download digital activity reports from MS Insights app.

  5. Integrate Forms that you assign to 'My groups' into insights

    Add information from Forms that you add to your groups into insights for tracking student activity without it being uploaded as an assignment. For example, if you want a quick 4 question AfL quiz adding it to your group via forms during the lesson and giving the link in chat is much faster than setting it as an assignment but can't currently be analysed in insights to see who engaged at the time.

  6. Downloading attendees of meetings for each Live Lesson within a day

    When downloading the attendees of a meeting from Insight the following day (we wait 24 hours to allow it to upload), the register of attendees can not currently be split in to am and pm sessions, from what we can see, despite the Live Lessons being set up by different members of staff on different channels within the Team group. It would be hugely beneficial if, when we went on to Insights within the appropriate channel, we only saw the attendees of the meeting on that particular channel.

  7. School Leaders Insight Data

    It would be useful to easily be able to report on student engagement being able to filter down based on large groups or Teams.
    For example we have Year Teams setup to send information out to students however these are not used for assignments. It would be useful for school leaders if you could use these Year Teams or whole school to gain insights into student engagement.
    The whole school insight has very limited data.
    The information that is useful for school is:-


    • How many assignments pupils have had

    • How many meetings each pupil has attended or missed

    • If pupils…

  9. Assignments not handed in

    In the previous version, we could see more analysis on who had not handed in assignments or % of assignments late or outstanding with a list of names of students in these categories.

  10. Insights in iPad app please :)

    Currently the tab is only available on the Teams desktop app and browser version, not on Pad/Phone app . As a school that deploys iPads to teaching staff, this is a feature that is invaluable for staff. It would be great if this could be added to iPad app.

  12. ALLOW ONLY THE TEACHER TO VIEW US VIA CAMERA AND NOT OTHER STUDENTS AS WELL!!!

    As a student I personally hate turning on my camera during class! Due to the pandemic it is quite necessary especially during tests. But I would be completely okay with having just my lecturer being able too see me. So please Microsoft!!!!! Make this happen..online learning is the future so why not make us feel more comfortable! Thank you

  14. Track attendance in private channel

    I was not able to add insights to my private channels. It would be really useful to track attendance / activity for these students, as the team was created by level and the channels used for specific subjects. Hence they were made private.

  15. Background feature , need it pls

    Dear microsoft teams,
    Pls microsoft , introduce background changing option in Android app of MS teams
    We have online assemblies n we are told to change our background according to theme, n it becomes necessary to use laptop for it, atleast start with background blurring option n then custom background. It's a request . It would really help students who do not own a pc to take part in assemblies properly.
    Thankyou

  16. Teams/Insight

    Google classrooms automatically emails through the register/participants list once the meeting has finished. In Teams you have to download the participants list which is not in alphabetical order by surname. Insights shows you if they were there but this doesn't always match with the participants list you got sent through. Insights also seems to show whole engagement across the day for the pupils where as individual teachers just want details for their subject.

  18. Why does the window size always go back to a default setting?

    I use TEAMS for 7 hours a day for language school. We are constantly going in and out of breakout rooms and every time we come back to the main room my screen goes back to the size it was when I log on in the morning and then I have to resize it. We go into breakout rooms multiple times every hour. I have to resize the screen at least 20 times a day.
    Why doesn't the screen stay the size I have chosen like it does it most other apps? Is there a way to set a default…

  19. Teams is clunky and really, really hard to use. Why do you have tobuse Notes, to upload photos. And why can't you upload more than one phot

    Imagine someone who isn't a windows fan using teams. It sucks. It's counter intuitive and is so bad, I came close to dropping out of a course because we had to use it.
