  1. Gice Control options to more than one teacher instead of only the organizer.

    At the moment, we only have the option to give controls to all participants or only the organizer. It would be great for all co-teachers to have permanent presenter controls even if they are not the meeting organizer for reoccurring meetings.

  2. Dark mode

    The dark mode is already available but when I open the app on iOS the ‘splash/start screen’ is still light. I think Microsoft could make this easily dark also? Thanks in advance

  3. Disable Video Meetings Recording by members locally

    Please could you add a disable button on the members permission area within a team to be able to disable the recording of video meetings (scheduled and Meet now) for members. Some learners might have a protection order and cannot be recorded on video, we have found that members (learners) can record a meet now or scheduled meeting anonymously and have the ability to download the video from the General posts tab in a team. Policy is that we have to have permission sheets completed by learners prior to any photos or videos being taken. Thank you

  5. Video mute

    in TEAMS under "participants" we can mute or kick out of the meeting. Consider adding the option of kicking out (but they can come back in) or the option of kicking out and blocking for that particular meeting.

  6. Mute/un-mute specific people in chat

    Most of my students do a great job of only using the chat when it is appropriate. Some, however, are "spammers". It would be nice to be able to disable/enable chat for specific attendees in the meeting so I don't have to disable chat for an entire class meeting.

  7. Make scheduling a meeting simpler.

    I should be able to unclick both response options in a single drop down without it going back up in between. I have to drop the menu twice just to unclick both. Also, I should be able to set the meeting options in the original schedule menu. I shouldn't have to schedule the meeting and then go back and edit the menu just to access the meeting options. Furthermore, I should be able to set some defaults for my meeting options so that I don't have to edit every single meeting I schedule for my classes all. year. long!

  9. Show all recordings of lectures of all class seperately as Recordings List

    It will bw more helpful if i can find all class recordings in one place.
    it'll be easy for me to find and revise my old lectures. As the lecture recordings are being expired in 20 days since last update i'm missing many lectures without getting 100% knowledge from that lecture.

  10. Recorded video

    The recorded video should be directly uploaded in Microsoft streams. Earlier it was uploading. Later the videos were coming in post. Now the videos which are been recorded in not coming in post nor in streams. Kindly make the changes so that the recorded video comes in streams automatically.

  11. Primary teachers are not happy with Teams due to lack of easy to read icons -they want features like Seesaw

    It would be so beneficial to be able to change function words to icons so that young students who are emerging readers can independently use Teams. Teachers in our district want to use Seesaw. It has the same features but it easier for young students to use...at an extra cost.

  16. lower volume without actually lowering the audio devices volume

    so when i open audio settings and try to lower the volume of the call, it just lowers the volume for the audio device my computer is connected to.
    it would be better if i can control the audio of the call without lowering the devices volume so i can maybe hear other programs better.
    thank you.

  17. You should add a thumbs up button that goes with the raise hand button.

    You should add a thumbs up button that goes with the raise hand button. That way students can agree even without a mic.

    My classes are every other day. I want to schedule meetings but if I use every two days the meeting for Friday will re-open on Sunday. I need a custom feature that allows me to select every two days but can exclude the weekend and holidays.

  19. Replace student video feed with a screen share so that I can see the work they are doing on their screens.

    Replace student video feed with a screen share so that I can see the work they are doing on their screens. Would be nice to see the work of multiple students at the same time. Would work great to have student's complete math problems using a stylus.

  20. Video related problem

    Please don't show the mirror video while attending meetings. It makes the face look weird.
