  3. Dropping files in multiple teams at once

    Hello- I'm a former google classroom user trying to adjust to Microsoft teams. Maybe I'm missing it, but I would love the ability to post/upload in a channel to multiple classes at once

  4. Notify all channels or selected channels as admin

    Allow a global Teams admin or designated person to post to all Teams "general" channels or select which Teams to specifically post to. I know right now you can post in multiple teams IF you are a member of said Teams. I would like the ability to notify all Teams for campus updates in addition to sending out an email. Right now the only way to do this is if you happen to have all the channel email addresses (which is like pulling teeth to get all of them) or to create a bot or use a third part bot…

  6. Microsoft Forms

    Please make a feature that allows for the teacher to edit a live form after posting/ assigning it to classes.

    For example: If a quiz has been posted and there is an answer marked incorrectly as correct, allow on the live form for correcting this. The live form should then be able to continue by adapting- correcting any misscored quizzes and allowing students to see and use the corrected form. Google Docs has this feature.

    The feature I really like here in Microsoft Forms, is being able to see the actual question/ answer and change the score next to it.…

  7. Automatically showing all teams that you are a member of when you open the app.

    Automatically showing all teams that you are a member of when you open the app.You can always hide a team afterwards if you don't want to see it in the app rather than having to go looking for a team that you are a member of to display it

  8. Flags downloading from chat are in the way

    when I download multiple files from chat, a flag pops up covering the downloads and I can't click the other downloads until the flags go away. Minor, but annoying.

  9. Existing OneDrive Document Versus Make a Copy

    I would love to see the ability to add an existing one drive document in the area of FILES in Teams that I want others to collaborate on. I don't want to have to make a copy. If I upload a copy then I have an old file back in my personal OneDrive. If I share the link to this file in the chat it will get lost. Adding a view only option would be beneficial as well.

  10. desktop vs online version

    I teach Computer Applications and the desktop version and online version are not compatible. Therefore, I cannot grade many assignments and must download everything my students do.

    EX: When students insert a header in the desktop version, it doesn't show up on Teams

    EX: When students set tabs in the desktop version, they are erased in teams

    EX: Borders set in desktop version disappear when I try to grade in teams

    EX: Custom bullet points disappear on teams.

    Is there any way that preview from desktop version could happen? Or do they have to save everything as a PDF too?…

  11. Allow users to delete threads that have nothing to do with them

    When there are a lot of threads in a feed we should be able to delete old or unnecessary ones as it just fills up the tab with junk.

  12. Option to open, close, or reopen a post

    Option to open, close, or reopen a post. This could then allow us to filter threads from open conversations and things that need to be worked on to closed conversations and possibly seeing the final decision made moving forward to even reopening conversations for new discussion or decisions made. Filter these out will help tremendously in projects.

  13. On the Files tab make the Open in SharePoint link optional

    The Open in SharePoint link appears by default on the Files tab of each channel and it doesn't appear to be possible to remove it. It would be good if only Owners could see this, or even better, have it optional. Many of our users are not familiar with SharePoint and we wouldn't want people going there who don't know what they are doing. Even pupils in a Class Team site can easily get to the SharePoint backend.

  15. Sharing and working together for good beginnings and development of new and inovative products that are new and useful.

    User origination and competitive and capable coding for new programming if included would not hinder logic, but would facilitate better exchange of information both into and out-of the computer interface.

  18. Add Tabs to Teams program

    A useful feature would be to have tabs akin to browser ones. Sometimes I want to simultaneously look at several assignments to compare them, or to grade them at the same time, and I cannot do that in the App version (although it's possible in a browser by opening several tabs of Teams).

  19. 'interesting' and 'disagree' reactions suitable for education

    Additional reactions that would be suitable for reacting to academic discussion. It would be good for students/teachers to be able to indicate that a point is thought-provoking or to disagree without emotion.
