  2. Teams Assignments View of all outstanding and returned tasks for all classes

    Teams assignments. Can you please create a list of all the outstanding assignments for all teams.

    This will allow a user to see all the outstanding assignments without navigating through to each separate team/class.

    As a teacher this will allow me to navigate my marking quicker.

    As a student this will provide a homework planner which will allow them to see all outstanding tasks and all returned tasks.

  3. Lock/make read-only an entire Class Notebook within Teams

    If you do not want students to write in their class notebooks after a certain date, it seems like you need to lock individual pages (very time consuming for large classes).
    If you archive a Team it does not appear to archive the class notebook as students can still access the notebook via office.com.
    Please could you develop a way to lock a class notebook for the whole class within a Team?

  6. Clearer hand raised indication/icon

    The "raise hand" feature has been a great addition for meetings and virtual classrooms. One thing we're quickly noticing, however, is that when people are called on, they forget to put their hand down. I think this is mostly because the way the button changes when your hand is raised is subtle and easy to overlook. If you were to change the icon so the hand become orange/yellow, like the way it looks above the people icon, it might stand out more to people so they would be more likely to notice they still had their hand raised. Thanks!

  8. view participants at top of screen during presentation

    Move the participants to the top of the screen during a presentation and a screen share. Doing this will keep participants from looking down to the bottom of the screen when they are speaking to a person. At least they are looking up which is closer to the camera.

  17. The hand raise feature needs some adding.

    Hello, I am a 7th grade student in the United States of America and I spotted something in my class today that would be very helpful to us, students and to the teachers. Personally I think this will be a great feature to add to teams, so please take heed to this idea. When us students raise our hand, the teacher sees our hand right? That is partially correct. When our teachers are presenting a slideshow or anything else, they cannot see our hand raise at all. Some teachers ask us to be muted. That results us to not have…

  18. Default view

    The ability to set the default view in a teams channel. I added Planner to a Teams channel and the default always goes back to "Group by Bucket" view. I would like the ability to change the default to any setting. For instance, if I wanted to view planner by "Progress" and the next time I go back to the Teams channel, the default remains in the "Progress" view instead of the Group by Bucket view.
