  1. The ability for students to make their own teams

    It would be good if students can make their teams. The teacher/moderator would be able to see the converation (a.k.a moderate the team).

  2. Teams and OneNote integration

    1.) You should be able to integrate an existing OneNote into teams
    2.) Name changes to groups and Channels should happen across devices
    3.) Class Notebooks should be visible in a persons OneDrive area
    4.) The set up of a team should be transferable so teachers can copy an existing format (channels etc) for different year groups

  4. Hit "Enter" to Create a New Line Rather Than Post

    Within a comment, or reply, it would be helpful to be able to list items by line by hitting "enter" as with every other chat or text function in contemporary usage. Or, this could be an option to turn off, as it was with an OLD Facebook version a few years ago before they removed it entirely.

  8. Allow assignments in teams to have audio files uploaded to them

    This would allow teachers to accept audio files and have a cut off time instead of time stamping it in a folder to be uploaded. This way you don't have to sift through the late assignments in order to find the ones that were actually turned in on time.

  9. Icon preview

    a) there should be a way to order files via thumbnail or list
    b) there should be the native ability (i.e. WITHIN the app) to preview files e.g. JPG (not only word et al and PDF files) without having to download the file.

  10. contacts

    We recently got the ability to create our own groups under "Contacts", but once they're created, the names of the members are displayed in the order they're entered, rather than alphabetically, making them harder to find. A bit more customization ability is needed. In addition, we can't control which order the groups appear in, so I can't put the most frequently used group at the top, even though that's the one I created first.

  12. Create a folder/favorite button to save gifs we use a lot

    Could Teams have a way to that we could create a folder/favorite button to save gifs we use a lot in chat. That way a user doesn't have to search all the time and can easily access the chat icons, including gifs, that we use the most.

  13. File Download is broken in app Assignments

    I'm not able to download files that students submit in Assignments folders when using Teams. Originally, I was able to click the 'Download now' button. It didn't work, but right-clicking it gave me a context menu option that worked. Then that menu option went away and there was no way to download files in the PC version (online still worked). Now the online version is broken as well. The only way to get the assignments now in online Teams is copy and paste the contents that are now displayed. However, the copy/paste mechanism is badly broken and excruciating to get…

  14. Create a way for students to see the feedback that I leave them on an assignment.

    Looking at the students' version of the assignment, they are able to see the assignment that they submitted, but not the feedback that I provide them in the "feedback" textbox.

  15. Timeline view

    Timeline view: Most recent posts at the bottom of the page based on when things were posted, rather than the one which has the most recent comment on.

  16. Headings in Teams-conversations

    I wish it was possible to start a Teams-conversation with a heading / theme instead of starting the conversation with the first message. This would make it easier to retrieve a previous conversation about a specific topic.

  17. I need to have it on half a portrait screen and be able to see all the text on class notebook.

    At the moment you can only see half the text. The other half is covered by your team selection tab on the left side,

  18. Separate tab or section for file viewing/editing

    create a section for document/file viewing - so if I switch to a chat - I can come back from where I was. Currently when you view a file in a team channel - you lose the ability to see it again if you switch to chat. If you open a file to view or edit it - can you open a new section under "Activity, Chat,Teams...."? Thanks!
