  1. Make the original Teams App available for download

    We have the iPad Mini 2 and it can't download the iOS past 9.3. The Teams App needs at least 10.0. The old Teams App would work, but it is not available for download. Can you make the old app available for download OR give us a work around so that my students and teachers can use Teams?

    Thank you for you consideration.

  2. keyboard shortcut for changing availability status

    Allow one to more quickly change their availability status using keyboard shortcuts. Change availabilities automatically to away when computer is locked or user inactivity for a certain period.

    try this instead  ·  Cameron responded

    Students can always turnin again for accidental submissions leading upto the due date.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Locked Documents

    For some reason, the same file was uploaded twice; however, Teams won't allow me to delete either file, nor will it allow me to rename either file, because they are supposedly "locked", even though I'm using the same account and email address. It's incredibly frustrating, especially when my peers need to comment on my work.

  9. Make the "points" on the assignment a float rather than integer. I often say to student "but I only nicked you half a point".

    Make the "points" on the assignment a float rather than integer. I often say to my student "but I only nicked you half a point". Even though I could double the number of points and drop one, it is important to let the student "see" it as a minor error.

  12. Leverage Stream for Flipped Learning

    Integrate Microsoft Stream in to Microsoft Teams to allow teachers and students to flip learning, similar to FlipGrid.

    Here is an example workflow:

    Teacher creates a new Stream Tab called "Introduce yourself"

    Students can upload videos to the Stream Channel that is permissioned for the members of the Team only directly within the app.

    Pretty much FlipGrid with the O365 ecosystem.

  13. We need to let students hand in their text work in the school assignment in Teams

    It simply doesn't work yet... I am able to create assignments and to give instructions to students, but they can't use the document where they are supposed to write their text so that I would receive their work in Teams. Instead they have to share Word documents with me which becomes a mess in my e/mail.

  15. Remove the giant splash screen in Conversations and Files

    After I've used Teams once, I get that you have Conversations in the conversations space, and that you upload Files in the Files space... PLEASE remove the giant splash screens that invite the user to do that in the entire visible space once there are any files or conversations that exist. Its wastes screen real estate and is very obnoxious.

  16. WYSIWYG when editing an assignment

    When creating an assignment, I would have expected a tiny wysiwyg editor to formulate the wording of the assignment.
    I would swap platforms (Google Classroom, Schoology, etc.) just for this feature, it really seems a basic thing.

  17. Teachers being able to edit word documents.

    Right now, I do not have the option to edit student work that is submitted. I do not want to have to open each student document in a new tab in order to give substantial feedback. If this could be made available, like it is for the students when work is specified, it would be helpful.
