  2. Let me save default meeting permissions instead of having to adjust every meeting that I create.

    Every time I create a meeting for my students, I need to go into "Meeting Options" to choose the lobby bypass option and the who can present option. Please create a section in settings where I can default it to my preferences.

  3. Make a "CREATE TEAMS" option for students.

    Please make a "Create Teams" option for students, because I think that if a student has Teams but doesn't use it for SCHOOL purposes, then he/she should be able to create a team since they don't use it for school. They could be a home-schooled student that wants to chat with a friend or a gamer that wants to communicate with his/her teammates/friends (That's me!). In conclusion, I think that anybody should be able to create a team even if it's just a lonely kid that wants a few friends. Thank you. (My writing skills are polished up, really like…

  4. The ability to record only the host's camera and screen.

    When recording a class, it would be ideal if there were a setting to only record the teacher's screen and video camera. This is because there's no need for the students to view back recordings of each other and also because minors cannot offer consent to be recorded. If you could record only the teacher's camera and screen that allows classes to be recorded and rewatched later by absent students without violating the other's right to privacy.

  5. An option to mute incoming audio will be very convinent.

    Ms teams audio overlaps with other audio in the system. So, there should be an option to mute incoming audio in the teams.

  7. Please add icon in participant list that show video on or off - same same audio

    Add icon next to participant name to show if video is on or off - same as audio; there are times large gallery is not working and teacher need to have a second way to check video attendance

  8. chat option in meeting

    if a person sends a message in chat the notification received by others hides the input layout for all other members in the meeting which blocks others from sending message directly . notification for chat messages in meeting is not necessary as we can see the message directly

  9. My art class is on a A/B Day rotation, can we get a calendar where we can choose multiple dates that are random for meetings?

    I would like to click on multiple dates for my classes. I run on A/B days. One wee I teach MWF and the next Tu/Thurs. It would be nice to just click on each day that I have them and schedule all of the classes one time instead of each one individually. Also, in each class I have to manually go in and change each one to be me as the presenter only. I click on manage and it takes me to a safari, then I have to copy the link and go to firefox to change each class. Can…

  10. please make the app light

    The teams app is too heavy for an average computer/mobile phone. The app takes too much ram and cache memory and the mobile/mobile begins to hang,so much in fact that my computer has crashed a few times and i had to restart it even though my computer has 4 GB RAM . A few of my friends are also having this problem on their android phone

  11. Is there an easier way to ensure that videos will play sound?

    There is a pop-up to share sound at the beginning of a class meeting, but if we miss that option, we have to go into the audio settings to share sound when we play a video. Can it be a default that video sound is played during a class meeting?

  13. schedule assignments

    It would be really great to have the option of scheduling assignments for students before hand. I like to schedule my assignments a week at a time for my own sanity. However, if I do this on teams then my students have access to all the assignments on Monday and that leads to confusion with my 4th graders.

  14. Let students create meetings

    Students are missing valuable social time due to online school (Lunch and private conversations after school work is completed). Also, some students only see their friends at school, so this is detrimental to their friendships. This would allow students to "hang out'' during free-time and improve mental health.

  15. Out of order messaging/chat - Last message replied appears first; making it hard to follow an effective timeline

    Have messages follow a timeline (in order of posted date), so reference to a previous message is not out of context or confusing, and easier to find.

  16. Ending chats when the presenter leaves the meeting.

    All chat sessions should be stopped upon the presenter leaving a meeting. The students should not be able to continue to chat after the meeting has ended.

    Furthermore, there should be an alarm to tell the teacher that a student has raised their hand. It should be a little bell chime or something that alerts the teacher, or presenter that a student has a question and has raised their hand.

  20. Alarms for the classes on the calendar, for little kids not to miss their classes.

    There should be an alarm for when classes are to begin, because little kids go to the restroom or do something between classes and they get distracted.
