  1. Integrate GoodNotes pdf / jpeg marking into Teams for assignments

    If you won’t make the Apple pen work in Teams, then allow GoodNotes integration to develop a sort of depository to allow for collection of assignments under a specified OneDrive folder linked directly with Good Notes, allow the necessary marking there, and have the saved document available to students in the Teams folder for review.

  6. Indian Languages for Dictate tool

    Indian Languages for Dictate tool

    Microsoft always consider "inclusive" approach for their products and services. In Class Notebook currently one can use immersive reader to get translation of given page in most of the Indian languages.

    Dictate tool reduces time and efforts of students as well as educators while creating their own content or taking notes. Speaking native languages and system converting that speech to text makes it is for every age group.

    Requesting team to get this feature so that it can support millions of students, learners to learn & create using their native language. Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil,…

  7. Team consumes Data very heavily unlike Zoom

    Whenever we log in Microsoft Team heavily consumes data. 2 hours of class takes away almost 2GB data. Zoom consumes very less data
    may be 300 mb for 3 hours class. Please look into this.

    Further, Please Provide better control features so tht students can be controlled with reference to privileges granted to them during class

  10. Zoom into a person's video

    There should be a way in which we can zoom into a person's video feed. I'm not talking about the zoom that exists and increases the size of text and icons. I mean that I should be able to move around in a person's video when it's set to 'Fill Frame'.

  13. Synchronise Class Notebook name if Team name is changed

    Allow better integration between Team name and Class Notebook name. If a Team name is currently changed, this does not automatically change the name of the Notebook and the link between the two is damaged, meaning assignments/grades, etc, do not work correctly. Implement a system whereby there is a natural link between the Team name and the Class Notebook (OneNote) file name.

    Extend synchronisation to if a channel name is changed, for the corresponding sharepoint area.

    At present, there is little synchronisation when anything is changed.

  14. Status changing

    I think there should be a setting that you can change how long it is before your status automatically times out and marks you away. I can be checking my emails and come back to the Teams app saying I'm away.

  15. Notify us 5 or more minutes before a scheduled meeting

    Teams should send us a notification reminding us of a scheduled meeting. And we may choose the time limit for example: 5 or 10 minutes before the scheduled meeting or even more.

  16. Add a pen feature and stickers for marking

    Add a pen feature for teachers to mark and comment before returning the assignment. We use codes for spelling, punctuation etc and need to be able to add this to their work before giving feedback. Also, stickers (like in Onenote) would be useful.

  19. Class Notebook should notify upon corrections.

    I have a suggestion regarding the class notebook. As a student, it would be really beneficial if I could get a notification whenever a teacher corrects the work that I have put in the notebook.
    It gets very difficult to look through all the notebooks and all my work to look for a correction.
    Thank you.

  20. Have an option to pin oneself's video like zoom.

    There should be an option to pin videos. For this single most reason I prefer zoom. one should be allowed to pin itself's video or some other persons video according to them.
