  1. checkmark

    It would be quite nice if there were a checkmark ( ✓ ) option available to acknowledge someone's message when one doesn't necessarily "like" it. (There are currently six options: thumbs up, heart, laugh, surprised, sad, angry.)

  2. assignment max file size is 50MB. this is way too small. We are teaching graphic design and files are WAY larger than this.

    assignment max file size is 50MB. this is way too small. We are teaching graphic design and files are WAY larger than this. We need to have a much bigger max weight size. Using onedrive is extremely inconvenient

  3. add hashtagging ability to teams with #inserttopic here format to catalog relevant subject matter

    it would be v useful to be able to throw a hashtag into a conversation to catalog things to track back to them and their related topics later.

    Use case: #accessibility, so as new compliance modes come about, I can throw that tag on conversations i've had and get back to it. or #resource, or whatever!

  4. Block students from being able to edit assignments after the turn in date.

    Block students from being able to edit assignments after the turn in date. I do not want students to be able to edit their work after the turn in date, before I have a chance to grade it.

  5. Deploy Teams app into Program Files like a regular, not-insane app

    How about installing the Teams program into the Program Files folder, instead of doing crazy, insane shenanigans in the user's profile? You install Word, Excel, PowerPoint, everything else into Program Files. Why pull this crazy ****?

    Please get yourself in order and stop inflicting this nonsense onto organisations. If you need to constantly update, then set up a service that will do this, like Mozilla Firefox's maintenance service.

    MSI-installing a second installer into Program Files is lunacy.

  6. Only certain assignments with a key word appears for parents and guardians on the digest.

    As a teacher, I use Teams for both classwork and homework assignments but I do not necessarily want parents seeing what I have set for classwork assignments. Is there a way which only the assignments with the key word Homework (or Prep as we call it) will show to parents in the digest?

  7. The class code is to difficulte to create - there are too many clicks

    This is a feature that teachers use often and today we need to make to many clicks to create a class code.
    this feature should be 2 clicks Max (like = to click the teams '3 dots' > 'create class code')

  8. Rearranging Replies in a Conversation

    Many people responding to conversation posts end up starting a new post. This creates a disjointed conversation and some team members' ideas get lost or end up losing sight of the original post.

    It would be GREAT if owners of teams had the ability to rearrange misplaced replies by adding them to the original post. Perhaps the "..." could have the option to move a post to make it a reply to another post?

    As an owner, I would love this ability.

  9. censor Hate language

    As a Teacher and owner of the team I'd like to be able to set some language conventions to be applied to the Conversations tab.

    I'd like to be able to block all common swear words. Also the ability to add additonal custom words might be useful.

    What would be amazing if MS could use some of it's AI powers to scan a message and flag comments it think might be abusive and hide them until the owner has approved them.

    Currently Teams has the ability to mute people etc which is a useful tool. But it would be nice…

  11. turn off comments on a post

    I'd like the ability to turn off commenting on a post. For example, yesterday I posted a request for feedback in a team channel. The deadline for providing feedback was last night, but people are still commenting on the post. I'd like to be able to turn off the ability to add new comments to the post.

  14. larger feedback box in assignment with rubric

    When using a rubric and giving feedback I find the feedback box I type in is really too small. I can view only a hand full of words in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Could it be increased in size? I often need to note specific grammar mistakes and I would like at least 5 rows of viewable space for typing feedback.

  15. download fails silently

    Downloads should not fail silently. On failure, report why the download didn't work.

    This is basic UX design. Get it together.

  16. Link Files tab in a channel to a different document library

    I have created a new channel and I want to keep files in a separate document library for that channel and not a sub-folder of Documents. I am able to add a tab in that channel, but the original Files tab remains. What would be great is to be able to right-click files and link it to the separate document library (not Documents). Alternatively, it would be useful to remove or hide Files so that there is no confusion as to where to find files.Thank you.

  17. Assignments "To Grade" based on assignments turned in

    Currently the Assignments "To Grade" simply show the amount of students in that class. Rather, it would make more sense for it to show the amount of students who have submitted that assignment.

  19. add resource to student assignment

    As a teacher, I want to add work to a students assignment. This may be a photo I've taken or a video. This way I can keep all evidence of the student's work in one place for easy review later. This is different than adding a resource to the assignment when you create the assignment.

  20. Search project cards on planner board

    We use the Planner boards for organizing our projects. It would be great if we could run a search of the entire board as we have many projects and the scroll function can be cumbersome.
