  2. Grouping chat conversations

    Hi All,

    I've been working with Teams for two days now. I use it to create project teams at school. I really like it! :)

    One feature that I miss in Teams is; within "Chat" I'd like to group multiple chats into groups, linked to a team for example. That will create a lot more overview and will give you a better ability to manage the chats, I think.

    Thank you, M Barbouch

  4. Theme

    can it be set to keep the theme you choose, the part where it gives the choice of default, dark, and high contrast.

  6. A list of who has logged into the Team

    Wondering if we could have a way to know which students/parents are signing into the app. I can tell who I have added BUT I cannot tell who is logging and keeping informed.

  8. Clearer Identification of Active Activity

    I find it very difficult to identify who I have chats from. Just having the name bolded is not clear enough amount all the other information on the screen. In Skype there is a little dot next to the name of anyone that has sent you a message you haven't read. I don't need the dot specifically, but I need some other more visible notification or identification.

    In the attached file it is clear that I have a chat, but in the full list of people on my favorites and recent, it take a moment to track down who I've…

  9. "My Tasks" in Microsoft Teams

    We are able to discretely split Planner into sections through the Channels in Teams by adding a Planner tab - but there is no way to see all assigned tasks across channels within Teams (like you have in the Planner app).

    If I access My Tasks in Planner, I can see my tasks that actually sit in these channels, but not through the main plan, which means I need to access my Channel tasks in Teams, but go into Planner to see all of my tasks in one place.

    Not easy to describe, I hope this makes sense!

  10. Issues with TEAMS:

    Concerns:

    Let's assume that a teacher is creating each class team by first clicking on the TEAMS icon accessed after signing in to Microsoft 365. That said, here are some problems I and other colleagues encountered:

    1) Under the FILE tab in a class TEAM, the teacher is unable to create a FOLDER in which to organize documents.

    2) A teacher is unable to arrange the files in a preferred order. There are only two options: arrange by date and/or by most recent.

    3)When using CONVERSATIONS, the messages sent and the replies are listed in the order they were written.…

  11. Embed a Team's Channel in another webpage

    I wish I could embed a channel in another webpage using an iframe. It would make integration into my LMS so much easier!

  12. Change Name

    I prefer my class website to say Ms. Lastname, not my full first and last name. It would be great if we could edit our name like Yammer.

  14. Add Markdown button under compose box & plain/WYSIWYG compose modes

    Add a Markdown button below the compose box that when clicked, will show a list of markdown options, to explain how to format code. Also, to have these options clickable to add the given template to he compose box, allowing a user to manipulate the text. This allow first timers to develop an understanding for what it's saying quickly.
    I've attached a Word document showing a preferable way to how this should be formatted, unlike the help page where the input and output have different text, making it confusing.

    Also to have a plain text mode option for the compose…

  16. interface


    1. I would love to have a unified experience (waffle access) while in Teams.


    2. Post assignments to more than one Team at the same.


    3. In the calendar view...students need to see all assignments in an agenda view...as well as assignments all open assignments.

  17. It would be nice to have a feature that allows us as teachers to have an adapted scheduled release of a document or assignment

    It would be nice to have a feature that allows us as teachers to have an adapted scheduled release of a document or assignment so that we can just upload all documents and set a release date/closing date and track who has opened it

  18. 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.

  19. Custom Screen Name or Choose Format

    It would be nice to either be able to change the format for your name (so that when tagging people in a conversation, it doesn't show up awkwardly as Last, First MI). Even better would be to setup optional screen names within Teams so that such tags reflect your commonly used name.
