  1. Allow students to submit non-office files (like c-code) for assignments

    The title says it; any file type (or at least more coding file types) should be allowed so the students don't have to copy this manually into a Word document (which obviously won't run/compile).

  3. student created tests

    I would love to be able to create quizzes for my fellow students to take as test prep. Can that be available?

  4. Reply to students chat using pencil on iPad

    A typical problem we face, that students take pictures of an example they have a problem to solve. For a simpler way to answer, it will be helpful, if when replying to the student the question would be placed on top of a page and the professor could just write the answer either with her/his apple pencil or using her/his keyboard. For Maths & Physics LaTex support would be very helpful, at least at the level of Microsoft Word.

  5. Allow user to choose time limits for availability.

    Team shows me away after 10-15minutes, but I'm still working at my computer. I would like to control the idle times like Skype.

  8. Sort assignments by category

    Students and Teachers should be able to filter assignments by category in the assignments section, not just in each individual team.

  9. Poor translations need to be improved

    The language in translated versions of Teams should be proofread by qualified humans. The button "schedule" that must be clicked to post tasks in the future has been autotranslated to "tidsplan" in Norwegian, which is a correct translation of the noun "schedule", but it makes no sense in a context which requires a verb. A human would spot this.

  11. Word Document Bookmarks and Hyperlinks Not Functioning in Teams - Only in Desktop App

    I created document bookmarks and hyperlinks within a long document, so our team can efficiently identify needed content; however, that feature is not accessible in the Teams or Browser view. That feature is only available in the Desktop App.

  12. More than One Person Open a Doc Using Desktop App

    When more than one person attempts to open a document using the desktop app, the document closes. There should be a way for more than one person to open the same document using the desktop app, as many features in the Desktop App are not available in View in Teams or View in Browser. This makes document collaboration challenging.

  13. Redesign the UI

    I find the layout completely incomprehensible. It's just an assortment of material design components barfed all over the canvas. There's so much UI hidden behind and under stuff, frames without borders so you don't know where the menu ends, the content begins or where the scroll bar is at, which itself is TINY and doesn't scroll all the way to the bottom of what appears to be the content window. It just hurts to use it.

  14. Multiple channels selection - to set same settings all in one go

    It would be very helpful if we could select multiple channels in Microsoft Teams by holding SHIFT or CONTROL and clicking.
    This would help when setting the same channel notification settings all in one go for the selected channels, rather than having to do it individually for every channel one by one.

  16. Mark assignments as handed in/cleared/hand in for students/attach file button?

    Sometimes students email assignments or do group assignments. It would be good to be able to mark their assignments as turned in/cleared in teams. Both for the students and teachers to get a overwiev. It would also be good with a attach file button to be able to return a assignment/or a wordfile.

  17. Include a Kanban board into teams

    Can you please look to include a Kanban board into teams? This will help the community in visualizing the work and will aid in productivity.
    Check out how a simple Kanban looks in outlook.
    https://youtu.be/DBCNxzDLf_g (not recommending to use flow-e.. would love for teams to have this feature.

  18. Messaging

    I think that there shouldn't be the 'feed' section because it means that you cant see the new messages from piers, and you can only see messages where people have tagged things. A lot of my piers feel the same way and that it is a very annoying trait and downfall of the app MSTeams. I also don't like how you need a code to create teams and that is annoying as well as I cannot create teams between few people, just in our classes. This would be great if this could be fixed in the future :)

  20. Attach a single one note page to a post

    I tried to post a collaboration page using a share link but it just takes my students to one note home. I'd like to be able to post a collab page in the posts tab
