  2. 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?

    Have the ability to pop out a To-Do list and to add a Calendar support to see which assignments are due and when. Also, automatically add assignment due dates as soon as a teacher integrates it.

  7. assignment max file size is 50MB. this is way too small. We are teaching graphic design and files are WAY larger than this.

    assignment max file size is 50MB. this is way too small. We are teaching graphic design and files are WAY larger than this. We need to have a much bigger max weight size. Using onedrive is extremely inconvenient

  8. Implement badges to help motivate learners and track progress

    Can we implement badges similar to those you can use in Moodle (https://docs.moodle.org/38/en/Badges)? This would be a great way to engage learners in a course and would help them to monitor their own progress as they unlock skills and earn badges.

  9. Separate homework hand-in to assignment hand-in

    Hi,

    We use Teams in our department at college where students do homework as well as assignments, currently we use the assignment tab for homework and hand-in the summative assignments on to Moodle as there isn't a separate place. However if there where to tabs one for general homework and then one for assignments that would mean we could use Teams for all hand-ins making it easier to keep track of both separately.

  10. Block students from being able to edit assignments after the turn in date.

    Block students from being able to edit assignments after the turn in date. I do not want students to be able to edit their work after the turn in date, before I have a chance to grade it.

  12. Turn in button on Student Work page

    We have a lot of students who finish their work, and forgot to turn it in because they have to Close the Assignment, and then Turn In. It would be great if a Turn In button was located at the top of the Assignment Page next to Close so they had the option to close or Turn In their assignment.

  13. Allow user to choose time limits for availability.

    Team shows me away after 10-15minutes, but I'm still working at my computer. I would like to control the idle times like Skype.

  14. The ability to assign one assignment to multiple Teams

    It would be great to be able to create an assignment in Teams and choose which Teams to post it to at the same time as opposed to having to go to each Teams and copy the assignment. Similar to the new update where we can post an announcement to multiple teams at once. Thanks for all you do. Teams is great!

  15. censor Hate language

    As a Teacher and owner of the team I'd like to be able to set some language conventions to be applied to the Conversations tab.

    I'd like to be able to block all common swear words. Also the ability to add additonal custom words might be useful.

    What would be amazing if MS could use some of it's AI powers to scan a message and flag comments it think might be abusive and hide them until the owner has approved them.

    Currently Teams has the ability to mute people etc which is a useful tool. But it would be nice…

  17. Managing Student Preferences- DESELECT ALL BUTTON NEEDED

    I am trying to make groups in the collaboration space of OneNote and only allow for certain students to be in each group. When I manage student preferences, ALL students are checked and there is no box to deselect all. I have to manually de-select all students. I have 10 groups, in 5 classes, with an average of 40 students in each class, so for each group, I have to deselect 36 students manually. PLEASE add an option to UNCHECK ALL.

    It would be nice to assign a picture per channel instead of it defaulting to the Team picture.
