  1. Add a 'Music Lesson' feature that does NOT mute/reduce/attenuate sounds, thus allowing msuicians to play together in real time.

    Add a 'Music Lesson' icon/button that would allow all participants to hear unrestricted sounds. Could recommend wearing headphones with this feature. This could allow musicians to play music together in real time, without the current microphone attenuation happening.

  2. Posts

    It would be great to be able to upload a video or picture to the post page that is shown immediately like a GIF and not forced to be saved in files.

  4. sort rearrange

    PLEASE give us the ability to sort members' names ALPHABETICALLY or by STATUS in a given Team or Channel, and rearrange names (e.g. if we want certain names at the top of the list, for quick and easy access).

    This seems like a very basic feature that is missing in Teams. My organization has been using Slack and Jabber, both of which allows various ways of sorting.

  5. Screen Split Templates!

    Almost like a Microsoft PPT template, I would really appreciate if there were some templates or if we could create our own templates for share screen. When I have a class I want three things on the screen. A schedule (a visual schedule) and a behavior chart as well as my live stream.

    I don't want to have to toggle through the share screens. I just want to have each screen up and pinned

    OR

    have a special template that you can customize to your needs where there might be two spaces for a picture (a picture of the schedule,…

  6. keyboard shortcut for Back (<) and Forward (>) buttons

    The top left of the Windows app has "<" and ">" navigation options. It would be great if I could use Alt+LeftArrow and Alt+RightArrow like I can for Microsoft Edge.

  7. PPSX files should open as a PPSX in tabs

    A PPSX file is a powerpoint that only opens as the "show" and not the powerpoint editor. It would be great to be able to post a PPSX file as a tab in teams. Right now my workaround is exporting the PPT as a PDF and using that as a tab. Not as elegant.

  10. It would be nice to see all callers in the Skype window, or at least more than 4.

    Right now Skype only shows 4 users, whilst Zoom shows a lot more. It would be nice to be able to see everyone in my meeting.

  11. Multiple deletes for conversations and replies in a channel.

    Trying to "clean up" a channel so the announcements and assignments don't get lost. Deleting each conversation and each reply is tedious. Would like a select or highlight to delete multiple comments and posts.

  13. Allow for a PDF / audio / video file to be attached to each question on a QUIZ, or at least to the general description of the QUIZ

    Often the questions I include in my quizzes are complex - it would be great if I could attach a PDF or even short video to each, to give the extra detail required to answer a question properly (this may be a excerpt from an article/ a short video clip/ a diagram or image)

  14. Show how long a student was on the meeting/call in class and show those who are in idle

    Attendance features need to be improved in Teams. There needs to be
    1. better visibility for teachers on who is in class
    2. a prompt to teachers of who is idle (students can be online and not engage, it's hard for teachers to always manage this virtually)
    3. Provide a full report of who attended the class and for how long the student was online

  16. Capability of Adjusting Video Display Screen to Upper Corner of Screen

    It would be very beneficial for the user to have the option to adjust or move their own display screen to an upper corner, near the camera view.Also, be able to change it from a landscape view to a portrait view. This is especially beneficial for interpreters who are signing to deaf or hard-of-hearing students. As it is a means of a better visual, and to assure they are able to see each others hands completely when signing and communicating to one another. Also, you wont always appear to be looking downwards at the display screen just to make sure…

  17. Add a duplicate assignment option or continually schedule assignments feature

    It would be nice to set a repeating assignment for each day, or to be able to duplicate and then edit an assignment.

  19. Dictate function in desktop version...

    We need the dictate function in the desktop version of the Teams app that is available in the mobile version...More specifically posting in the channels or the chats we need to be able to record audio for the post/reply etc. The mobile version has this functionality & it would be nice to see it in the desktop version. Many Teams app "Owners" are more than likely using the microphone on their desktop/laptop regularly. Why not give us the option? Especially since Microsoft has already added voice recognition to other Office products like Word & PowerPoint.

  20. Allow notification banners to show up at bottom left of screen where they are not in the way of chat/announcement features.

    It would be helpful if we could move the notification banners to the bottom left of the screen so that they are not constantly popping up in the chat/announcement area.
