  2. Attendees in calendar invite

    Need to be able to add everyone as attendees for a calendar invite from a channel by either selecting the team or channel in attendees field or by copy paste from word or excel. Right now it is laborious having to manually copy and paste each email into attendees (most of my attendees are guests). Need to ensue it gets into their emails and calendars. Not everyone is used to technology or Teams.

  5. Add calendar view option for Next 7 Days

    Add an option to change the calendar to display the "Next 7 Days". This feature is already available in Outlook. I typically use the Week view but as the week progresses, more and more of the display is wasted.

  6. display of due assinments

    Every single student, in order to check or look up any assinments has to enter EVERY SINGLE team they are in. Therefore it is easy to miss a due date because you didn't enter a specific teams. Students on many occations get surprised when their undone homework is sent back to them, until then they don't realise one existed. So by putting each due assinment in a grid or calendar it would be visually easy to see if you have anu homewok for the given day. You won't have to access every single team, all of them are on one,…

  7. Live event calendar invite

    At the moment it seems that in the Live Event setup, a calendar invite is not automatically sent in the creation of the event.
    It would be great to have that feature included in the setup.

  9. english language with 24 hour time notation

    We are located in the Netherlands and use the 24h time notation (23:20) and we communicate in English, for this we use English (US). However in Teams if you select English (US) you automatically get the 12h AM/PM time and you cannot change it. If I want the 24h time notification I need to select Dutch but then my Teams client will operate in the Dutch language which I do not want.
    So please create two different settings. One for the language and one for the time format.

  10. time zones

    In the Outlook Desktop app you can have up to three time zones. Teams is designed for meetings that can span the planet, so why not add this in?

  11. Assignments and Meetings on Calendar

    It would make student's learning easier if we can see our assignments in our calendar and be able to see what meetings we have on which day. Also, we could click the meeting in the calendar and it takes us into the meeting. It would also be great if our outlook calendar transferred to our teams calendar so planning is smooth and we dont have to look in more than one place to complete our planning. It would also be great if there is a screenshot setting, so students can screenshot while a presenter is presenting.

  12. default to attendees

    It would be nice if when we could make all students attendees from the initial scheduling page and not have to go back in and change that setting. It is easier to make one student a presenter than it is to make everyone an attendee.

  14. Recurring Meetings

    When setting up recurring meetings, there should be an option to skip weekends. We are on a rotating block schedule during distance learning, so using the custom "meet every 2 days" setting works, however, it still sets meetings on the weekends.

  15. customize button to schedule/ duplicate meeting times

    I'm struggling to customize times for all of my classes. I have 6 classes 3 on A Day and 3 on B day but the schedule rotates. I want to copy the meeting credentials so I don't have too enter names each time. I want the group to repeat with customization of dates.

  16. I would like to be able to cancel future meetings in a series without deleting previous meetings.

    Cancel future repeats of meeting after term is over without deleting previous meetings. This would let students find the previous meetings' chat and links.

  18. arrange another meeting from a previous Team meeting

    After holding a meeting scheduled via Teams, if a follow up meeting is required for that same set of people, there is not currently a button to schedule another meeting, or duplicate the meeting that has just taken place. A whole new meeting has to be set up from scratch or you have to go into Outlook calendar online to duplicate the meeting that way

  19. Organiser cannot add specific people "who can present?" in more options

    In creating a meeting for other owners in a Team, as an organizer for school I cannot give control to specific people or owners to present only.
