  1. See list of assignments and grades of a student

    Hi Tania, How do I give feedback to Microsoft? I love how organized my assignments has become BUT when it comes to evaluation and report car

    I love how organized my assignments has become BUT when it comes to evaluation and report card writing it would be SUPER helpful if I click on the student name and all their assignments and marks are on one screen. it would be useful for Parent Teacher too. Also, we need a place to attach documents in the feedback section. (rubric, checklist etc)

  3. Basecamp App

    We use Basecamp to collaborate with vendors. It's awesome that we can integrate Asana into Teams but would love to have the ability to do the same with a Basecamp project.

  4. Promoting teams accross acaemic years

    Many schools in the UK will be running two year courses in Year 10/11 and 12/13 and will want to keep working on a team / notebook for the two years. 10En1 will become 11En1 etc most likely with the same members and teacher. There needs to be a way to promote teams to the following year without SDS resetting, deleting or recreating a new blank team.

  5. Disable Functions In Teams

    As an IT admin we need the ability to lock/ disable certain features within Teams. Right now we have the ability to disable the chat function which is great. However students are clever and will always find a workaround. They are currently using the 'Video Chat' option to cyber bully other students. We receive several complaints from teachers in regards to students having to much access and needing to be limited. If we can have the option to limit the use of certain features in Teams that would be great!

  6. Issue an assignment to multiple classes does not display the assignment notification in every class selected.

    When you issue an assignment to multiple teams, every team that receives the assignment should receive the notification within their chat area.

  7. Allow Owner to share Assignments with third party after hand in for moderation

    In some cases Assignments need to be moderated with a person outside of the school organisation. Assignments should be shareable by the Owner/Teacher either individually or as a folder.

    The external party would also need to be able to add a moderator's comment to each shared Assignment without being able to edit the student's work.

  8. reply only setting in Channel

    Hi, it would be great to have a setting where only the Owner (teacher) can make new posts in a conversation thread, and all others (students) can only reply to the posts. Therefore students cannot create new posts. Thanks.

  10. Using Teams for Project Management

    We are using Teams to work collaboratively with other team members. I am involved on many projects and I would love to be able to see at a glance all of the tasks I have been assigned to - regardless of which project it relates to. Right now I have to go into each channel to find my tasks and it's time consuming to scroll through other people's tasks just to find my own. Also, would love to have a method of rolling up all of these tasks to a master list (i.e., Original Date of Task, Current Date of…

  12. Mute channel option so they don't show new activity

    Having the ability to "Mute" specific channels would be nice. There are channels that I don't necessarily want to mark as 'following', but still interested in checking at times. New updates will make those channels show in bold letters. This is good. Other channels do not pertain to me at all, but still show bold when there is new activity. (Which is usually many times a day.) I'd like to "mute" the ones that I will never read so that they do not show bold. When 'everything' is bold, the stuff I should be reading gets lost in the noise.

  13. STATUS: EXTREMELY URGENT

    Hi,
    I already asked before to be able to put your status on 'absent' or, better still, 'offline'. I do not want my collegues to know at what time I'm working when I'm not at the office.
    Please also make sure your status stays the way you want it to be, even if you start working in Teams. Now, when I put myself on 'absent', my status goes back to 'online' whenever I try to find a file on Teams.

    For me this is a very urgent matter. Please make sure my status stays the way I want it to…

  14. Movement of pupils from one team to another

    Are we able to move a pupil from one team to another and in the process of doing so automatically take with them their assignment materials as well as their class notebook?

  15. Home button (on Teams)?

    A button to return quickly to the Home page of Office 365 from Teams would be of great value.
    In fact, same for OneNote, Word... the Office 365 top bar is present in some apps but seems totally missing from others. Am currently using multiple tabs...

  16. Show content of messages in email notifications

    Current notifications say: "You're missing all the action in Microsoft Teams. XYZ has sent a new message to your chat with... Open Microsoft Teams"

    As I do not have Teams open all the time and prefer to keep it that way, I have to log in to Teams just to check whether the message is important or not.

    If the email notification contained the message - as done in Slack - I would be able to decide about its importance without logging in.

  17. Dashboard for Teams

    Can we have the ability to see how many people have seen a channel message? Also we cannot currently pull data on a per team basis so we cannot tell how teams are performing e.g. number of comments made in a particular team- is this functionality you're planning on adding in?

  18. Editing through Word - cannot 'merge cells' in Teams or Word Online

    Merging Cells in a table (or Word being able to copy this when pasted from the same document / another one), should be available in both Teams' version of the editor and the Online version of the editor.

  19. Move "Upload from my computer"

    I am a teacher, and I usually have students upload their file for an assignment. I notice that "Upload from my computer" is at the bottom of that window, and students don't see it - they are looking at all the options at the top. It would be helpful to have "Upload from my computer" moved up instead of at the bottom by itself.
