  2. Calling people

    Everyone needs to be able to call and video chat. Some people, like me, are denied that ability for no reason. It just won't pop up!

  6. "assignments" should go back to normal

    when one clicks on 'assignments' it used to come up with all the assignments you have been set and when they are due in which was very helpful however now it just shows your classes which you can see on 'teams'. I have spoken to many people about this and they all feel the same way. thanks for the consideration.

  7. More prominent back and forward buttons

    It would be helpful if the "back" and "forward" buttons at top-left are more prominently places for navigating forward or backward to previous screens.

  8. Wrong Mental Model in Team "Chat"

    The Posts section is misleading. As the text field is below and newest entries appear at the bottom, people use it as a chat. This results in a distorted order of messages.
    Please, if it should be posts, the text field should be on top and newest entries also on top. Then people will more intuitively create a post and answer in its thread.
    Optionally integrate a control to switch between chat mode and post mode.

  10. I need a way that for Team calls, I can access my IPEVO document camera as the center of discussion(vs) me. Thanks !

    Teams needs a featuew (and I do not know of one right now) where I can access my IPEVO document camera during Team collaborative calls, so that I can teach remotely during this challenging time. I am a Precalculus teacher, and must work complex and intricate problems that cannot be done on the Whiteboard. I need to have the workouts as the focus, with my voice explaining the steps, and NOT have my laptop camera working. I have a Mac. Am I missing something? Thanks for your consideration.

  11. delete a class notebook in teams

    Ik heb via OneNote een notitieblok gemaakt. Bij Teams kan ik met Class Notebook een bestaande notitieblok toevoegen. Alleen wanneer dit toegevoegd is, kan je het niet meer verwijderen of een andere bestaande notitieblok toevoegen. Graag deze optie mogelijk maken.

  13. Colours on different chats groups and contacts

    In the Teams desktop application.

    It's not easy to quickly identify chat windows, Whether that's individuals or groups or Teams.
    Being able to colourise chats would help to tell them apart instantly.

    Simple background colour change could do this for the most part.

  15. Edit Assignment Resources in Teams

    This problem is new, and so might be the result of an update. Previously, students were able to Edit Assignment Resources directly in Teams. Now, it seems the only way for students to work on assignments is to open the resource/document in online or desktop programs. Having the ability to stay in the Teams window to edit/work on assignments was easier for students, and the change has caused a lot of confusion/frustration on both ends.

  16. Have an option to increase the size of icons and menus.

    Students with vision impairment would benefit from greater accessibility controls within the program. Build in an option to increase the size of icons, menus and text. Currently there is no way to adjust the display and I am sure that adding that capability would benefit many users.

  17. "notify when available" option on all user-connected right-click drop downs

    The "Notify when available" option (which is really useful) only seems to appear when right clicking a non-group (i.e. just a single chat partner) chat channel. No other interaction seems to offer this.

    This option should be available in every right-click menu associated with a Teams participant e.g., right click on profile pic, speed dial card, activity notification, call history etc

  19. The notifications flyout covers the space where we are to type our questions during our virtual meetings. Can it be moved higher?

    The notifications flyout populates in the space that we are trying to type our questions during virtual meetings. Can this be relocated to a more sensible place?
