  1. Focussing in new conversation

    When you add a new conversation and press enter, the mouse cursor focus remains in the box for a new conversation. Wouldn´t it be more useful to stay in the reply box for the conversation just added?

  3. Team Presence displayed

    When you are in the Conversation tab, we should be able to quickly see the members of that Team (like we can in a Group in SharePoint) and see their presence without having to click on the Team's name to see all the members.

    This would be useful to not wait for a response from someone in the Team if everybody is Offline.

    Being able to quickly see the Team members is also useful specially when you are working in different teams with different Team members.

  5. team index, welcom page

    it would be nice to have, or creat a team index, welcom page.

    Now al the Team sites starts with a chat start screen.
    Better is to have a clean index/welcom page with detail about your team/class etc

  6. Option to load a FILE to multiple TEAMS at one time istead of repeating the process again and again.

    A lot of wasted time reposting the same information to multiple TEAMS (aka Classes) Should have option to click to post files to multiple TEAMS (or classes) with a simple click.

  7. Can we switch back and forth between channels without losing access to the word doc I am working on?

    So my Team and I work on multiple documentations. It would be great to work on word docs and not lose access while switching back and forth between diff channels.

  8. Status

    Allow users to determine their status. Allow user to put "away" versus it automatically sending you to away after a predetermined time frame.

  10. Could you please add more options on grading the assignments within Teams?

    The 0-100 points grading might not be sufficient for some. In Norway we use grades F - A and 1 - 6 with +/- behind the grade to tell the students if they are close to an other grade (i.e. 5+ or B-).

  12. Take Control of Desktop Sharing

    My coworker was able to share his desktop with me in Teams, but I was unable to take control of it as to show him how to do something. Skype has this ability, which is what I had to switch over to, and you may already be working to add this functionality to Teams.

  13. iOS App scheduling meetings

    PLEASE can we have the ability to schedule meetings direct from the iOS and Android apps? We want to use Teams in our boarding school to have boarders schedule 'meetings' letting us know when they will be away from the House on an activity etc. The boarders will do that if it is a click on their phones but not if they have to find a computer and log onto it!

  17. Add a message when adding members

    When I add a member to Teams, I would like to be able to add a message to the automated email, just like you can do when sharing a notebook or file from OneDrive.

  18. I wish that when managing settings, I could upload an image to select a theme.

    If I have classes that are of the same prep, I would love to view the image as a quick reference to identify the class.

  19. Can we please bring back ADD NEW FILE for students!!!

    BEFORE, Students AND Teachers were able to ADD NEW FILE, choosing Word, PPT, or Excel. Now, only teachers can. This poses a problem for students because they would have to leave Office 365, and create a new document, save it, and then go back to Teams, and then upload it. Please bring this old feature back.

  20. Hold my place when I navigate away from a channel or a file.

    I thought I saw this idea posted before, but can't find it now. Every time I leave a tab on my Team's channel or a file I am looking at and come back to it seconds later (e.g. to check a message that just came in a chat or conversation), I have lost my page and place. Whatever app is under the tab (OneNote, Word etc.) reloads and opens up on the first page. I have to reselect the page and/or scroll again to what I was looking at. Is there any way that it could hold my place if…
