  1. 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…

  4. Students cannot login to Teams

    Approximately 30-40% of my class in any given period will not be able to log into Teams. They try from home and from school. Other teachers in the school report having the same experience. It's not always the same students who encounter difficulties. They might hit Try Again four or five times, and suddenly get in.

  7. search

    I'm using the Team app (Mac version) and have no way to search my screen (like when I'm looking at the wiki space). I know I would have this if I were using the browser version. Could searching the screen be incorporated into future app versions? Then again, if Teams had a search whole teams space feature available, this might not be needed.

  8. I would like to see the list of attendees in a large TEAMS room.

    When I host a weekly team meeting of 16 people, it is very hard for me to tell who is actually in the room & who isn't. The initial bubbles collapse on top of each other. Could we have a list to scroll through showing those members in the room.

  9. Just copy Google Classroom as it has all the features that Teams lacks.

    Enable pupils to resubmit their work AFTER it has been marked so they can improve it, I can not find a way of doing this. Be able to write and assignment and then issue it to different classes. Be able to extract all of a classes marks and export it into a spreadsheet. Be able to send a class e-mail out. Make it easier to add team members as I have to copy full e-mail address in as it doesn't recognise part names. There are other deficiencies but these are the biggest so far.

  12. Create a code for each Team/channel like google used to do.

    Creating a code for each Team/channel like Google does, would allow easier access for parents/visitor. As I create a Team, a code is automatically generated. I then share this code with with a students/parents who are then able to join the team. Access can be controlled by the team owner deactivating the code after a certain period.

  15. Students should have partner classes.

    If students need to work in partners or groups, they should have a partner tab so that way the whole class doesn't see their work and copy it, and teachers can have no access until the assignment.

  16. 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.

  17. Feedback in Teams

    As I grade a PowerPoint 2016 file that I gave to the kids to complete online using PowerPoint 365 via an assignment in TEAMs, I LOVE that I can offer feedback with paragraph breaks. That way I can send multiple paragraphs to the kids.

    What I find very discouraging is when the kids view their “returned PP365” file, the feedback from me loses all the paragraph breaks and empty lines between my typed feedback paragraphs. Instead of seeing an empty line between each paragraph or thought, the kids ONLY see ONE BIG long paragraph.

    If the feedback the kids viewed…

  19. Profile Photos in Assignments

    Student profile photos\avatars currently do not show in the Assignments area. Would be great if they did like the Conversations area.

  20. Forms + Teams

    Je peux mettre un forms dans mes devoirs. Par contre, si je veux lui attribuer un résultat, je dois aller dans l'application Microsoft Forms pour le voir et ensuite l'entrer manuellement dans Teams. Cela serait vraiment bien si le résultat pouvait s'intégrer automatiquement. De plus, quand je publie les résultats, l'élève devrait avoir une notifications qui apparaît dans ses activités pour voir directement son résultat. Merci, vous faites du beau travail.
