  1. Slow or fast playback of audio or video files

    I take audio or video recordings of meetings for those who could not make it can catch up.

    I would be useful if Teams' file-sharing supports changing the speed of audio or video playback, eg, 0.25x, 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, and 2x.

    For only these features alone, I think it is better to share videos via YouTube at the moment.

  2. Assignment & rubric database

    Assignment Rubrics in Teams is great. But if you really want a snazzy point of difference to other platforms then it would be great if there was an easy way to export the whole assignment description along with rubric to some sort of central Microsoft database.

    When exporting you would also add tags such as Grade 1 Math Australian Curriculum etc.

    I imagine also that you might have the option for the rubric only to be viewable by your specific organisation as some people don't like sharing beyond their school.

    A great place to start might be by buying out…

  3. 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.

  4. Managing Student Preferences- DESELECT ALL BUTTON NEEDED

    I am trying to make groups in the collaboration space of OneNote and only allow for certain students to be in each group. When I manage student preferences, ALL students are checked and there is no box to deselect all. I have to manually de-select all students. I have 10 groups, in 5 classes, with an average of 40 students in each class, so for each group, I have to deselect 36 students manually. PLEASE add an option to UNCHECK ALL.

  5. picture per channel

    It would be nice to assign a picture per channel instead of it defaulting to the Team picture.

  6. Assignments - Quiz - Immersive Reader

    When assigning a Quiz created in Forms to a class using the Assignments feature Immersive Reader should be a function, but does not work. The only way it currently works is if you send a link to the Form in conversations, but then you would need to duplicate all of Forms you create so you get feedback for each class period individually. The problem with this is that Forms does not allow you to put everything in folders, so this can make Forms unorganized easily.

  8. .url

    If i add a Link on SharePoint, the .url file is not valid in TEAMS. That's not really helpful because it should be a link on both sides.
    can you please allow this .url files as link in TEAMS?

  12. Unviewable Assignements

    Teachers can create assignments that students won't see. For example, giving students credit for completing something in class that is not a formal assignment.

  15. OneNote - roll up up tags

    I'm using One-note as a personal organizer and it would be great to have the ability to roll up tags (i.e. 'to do' items from various sections and pages) into a single report and have the ability to refesh backwards into those same sections and pages as they marked complete.

  17. can you make assignements private once handed in

    Is there a way to make an assignment private or unviewable once handed in? It would be really nice to be able to distribute tests and then mark them, but not have the students still be able to fully access the assignment after the due date. Also make assignments hand-in times down to 10min or so not 30.
