  1. Allow students to sign-up for individual meetings in the Calendar

    I would like to have the option for students to sign-up for a meeting at a particular time with me. Currently, I use Doodle to set up student conferences, but that doesn't integrate with my Outlook calendar the way that Teams meetings do. Plus, it requires that students go to yet another website. It would be great if I could set up certain times on my Calendar that I'm available and then one student could sign up for each time so that they know they'll get individual feedback during that time.

  2. have it show if the host is loged in or not

    Have it say on the calendar if the host is logged in or not on the calendar so your not waiting in the waiting room forever when the host didn't even bother to show up.

  4. calendar

    Please expand the options to schedule a meeting. As a teacher I would like to schedule my classes for the entire semester, but as they occur only Mondays and Thursdays I have to set a custom calendar each week. It would save HOURS of time to just schedule class on specific week days, not how many days between classes which doesn't work with the weekend.

  5. I want to make a calendar event that is not a video chat event... How do I do that???

    Every time you create an event it assumes that you want a video chat room started. I want to set up our schedules on Teams for our Students as far as practices and events, so the Students can see what is coming so they can prepare... How do I set up a calendar event and not have it as a video chat.

  7. Please add the homework assignments to calendar so it is easy to keep track of everything for multiple classes

    Adding the children's homework to the calendar with a link would make life easier to keep track of multiple classes and due dates. It also benefits the parents who have multiple children and work full time to take a quick glance at what is due and the work for the week instead of clicking on each individual class.

  8. Student Calendar

    Since our schedule is very fluid. Would it be possible to have the ability to clean up our students calendar of deleted meetings? I realize I can send updates to their meetings but, their calendars are very overwhelming for them to follow with all the deleted meetings showing.

  9. view recording icon in calendar

    At our institution, we ask tutors to record themselves conducting all classes. Obviously some of them forget to record the class and as administrator, we need to go into each individual channel to monitor if tutors are recording. Since we schedule meetings, it appears in Calendar. It would be great to have a red dot displayed on the Schedule Meeting in Calendar to show that recording is in progress. See attachment as example

  11. Calendar syncing with documents

    It would be ideal if teachers could add documents in the calendar that could be seen by the pupils linked to that class in their calendar. IS this possible. Our calendars are taken from SIMS and shown in Teams for staff and pupil. eg if i have Year 9 set 1 for Spanish. That appears in all of the pupils claendars but I can't share files with them here. This would mean that pupils could keep track using a timeline of the lessons they are meant to access the work?

  14. Please make these changes to the default setting. When a meeting is created everyone should NOT be a presenter.

    When a meeting is created everyone should NOT be a presenter. In addition nobody should be able to by pass the lobby except the owner of the meeting. It's really inconvenient for teachers to have to make this change for every single meeting. Especially because you can't even change it until after the meeting is created. That would be another improvement. Give the owner all of the meeting options while they are creating the meeting not after.

  17. Would it be possible

    Would it be possible to have Teams links populate onto one's calendar when the Teams link is populated through a platform such as ItsLearning
