  1. [Education] - Enable administrators to see and access every team

    As a school it is important that we are able to check on the teams and messages of all of the students to make sure that they are not doing anything inappropriate. It would also help with assisting users.

  4. View Student progress through Tiles instead of list

    I would like to see each student assignment as a tile, rather than a list. Within the tile, I want to visibly see the progress. This makes it easier to see that all students have started on one screen. Then I will be able to check in with students who aren't on pace with the rest of class. It is time consuming to click on every student link to see if he/she has started.

  5. Filter Giphy

    You can change the settings for a Team to restrict content from Giphy, but there doesn't appear to be a way to limit results in private chats to work-appropriate content.

  6. One Note as default start page in Teams

    We need to have One Note as default start page in Teams, not the chat. The teachers information is not easily accessed through the Teams app.

    I sent the request to 0365 tech support to duplicate or copy assignments in multiple classes and they sent me the response below. I don’t know what they mean. They corrected the second request by allowing owners to move created classes from PS from more to favorites.

  9. inactivity timers

    Please, disable the messages that occur after being idle with opened tab for a while. I for example frequently open more than 3 tabs just to switch between them when I need something and when I do I'm often dealing with the "Are you still here" window, which, after confirming that I am, reloads the whole page.
    Also, the pop up window for being plugged out of Internet is taking the whole cached view without a reason, I suggest a subtle icon would be better.

  11. Start connecting it with CLASSROOM!

  12. Insert Content library tab

    I would like to be able to upload a document in files Library so members would only be able to read and not edit. Just like content Library in OneNote Class notebook.

  13. Option to disable assignment resubmission

    Currently student are allowed to resubmit assignments endlessly. It would be good if there is an option to disallow resubmissions.

  14. Tagging files in chat

    Make it easier for your team to know what specifik file you're talking about, by tagging them in the chat. Perhaps by using #filename.doc or /filename.exc

  15. Really - Default activity view is all my chats????

    Why the heck would any idiot what ALL of their chat history with every Tom, ****, and Harry on the main and default view of the "Activity" Tab. This is old news. Sane people would just click on that person instead.

    This part is a mess.

    I don't even know WTF I am looking at. The activity feed view has the last person I chatted with a a HUGE main header. That makes zero sense. And there is no way to get rid of it. WTF?

  16. Notifications for "followed channels" doesn't behave as expected

    We are looking for notifications to be sent/seen when new comments are added to a followed channel conversation. The settings lead you to believe that you will get some sort of popup/banner and an email when new content is added, but we have not seen that happen as of yet.

    I found this discussion in the community.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/No-Team-Channel-Notifications/td-p/28640

    There is a wide variety of comments here that would lead you to believe that this is a feature that was added and presumably works. But there is also one comment that says the notifications for followed channels worked about 33% of…

  18. Hello - please implement zoom

    Whether it is control + and control - or giving the user the ability to change text sizes in Preferences, we should be able to increase and decrease the scale of the elements and text in Teams. This feature should be easy and similar to a web browser.

  19. Confusing days in channels

    Not sure if this is a bug or a misguided feature, but sometimes the channel will say 'Today' in a separator but underneath the separator it shows an IM from 'Yesterday'...
