  4. GoMath and Wonders

    Currently we have to assign our assignments in our online curriculum (GoMath/Think Central, Wonders) and then go back to Teams and create an assignment to go TO that assignment because Teams is where we track information and where students start from when logging in. Is it possible to create the assignment in the online curriculum and have it post as an assignment automatically to Teams? This would save me time and would reduce the number of mistakes I make when I have to double post assignments (one in the curriculum and then again in Teams). It would also help the…

  9. Change the Add Work text on an assignment to a button

    To make it easier for students to see where/how to attach work to assignments.
    there should be an 'Send Work' button instead of a small line of text. Place this buttons near the top of the assignment page, close to the Hand In button .

  11. Laser pointer in power point presentation

    Hello:

    When a power point file is shared within a conversation in Teams, the members of the group can see the slides. However, the people who are seeing the slide cannot see the mouse pointer of the presenter. Therefore, it is difficult to follow the presentation if the presenter is interested in focusing on a specific part of the slide.

    It would be very useful to have a laser pointer feature when sharing the power point presentation, so that everyone in the call can see what the presenter is pointing at.

  13. NOTIFICATIONS FOR EVERY ASSIGNMENT SUBMISSION, ESP LATE SUBMISSIONS

    Hello, I am an 8th grade teacher from Ohio who is utilizing Microsoft Teams for virtual teaching. My biggest setback through this experience is grading late work from students and having to continuously go back through all assignments to see who is turning things in at a later time. Teams NEEDS to have individual notifications for EVERY individual assignment that is submitted by students (similar to Facebook notifications). With this feature, educators can click on each notification, go straight to the new submission and grade it more quickly and easily without having to rake back through all old assignments every…

  14. Student privacy - ability to remove or edit last name

    I would like to see the option of having first name, last initial as a display name. It seems like there would be privacy issues if we are broadcasting last names to whomever is in the chat (even if they don't have their camera on).

  16. Ability to pin files under recent files on the files app

    When clicking on the files app from the sidebar it would be useful to be able to pin files that are used frequently so that user does not have to navigate to a Team or Channel to get to the file.

  17. Post Assignments in Specific Channel of a Team

    When posting assignments in Teams, users should be allowed to designate where those assignments are posted. Right now, all assignments post to general instead of allowing the user to choose which channel it will be displayed in. This feature would allow the user more control of where assignments are posted and seen.
