  1. Disable "add a team" function for student accounts

    Is it possible to disable the "add team" function for student accounts? Teachers are reporting problems with students creating Teams, adding other students and using it for non-school related activities.

  3. Position of turn in button

    Students sometimes double click the close button which accidently turns in their work. If the buttons weren't directly on top of one another this wouldn't happen

  6. Remove Markdown Preview

    It seems that the markdown message preview can cause issues when attempting to write posts or edit posts. I would think it would be easier to format and write messasges using the syntax if this preview was removed from the text box.

    I would really like to mute an entire class at once instead of individually. I have 150 students. This takes a while. It would be great to have a feature where I can mute or allow conversations with one click instead of 150 clicks.

  9. Disable Functions In Teams

    As an IT admin we need the ability to lock/ disable certain features within Teams. Right now we have the ability to disable the chat function which is great. However students are clever and will always find a workaround. They are currently using the 'Video Chat' option to cyber bully other students. We receive several complaints from teachers in regards to students having to much access and needing to be limited. If we can have the option to limit the use of certain features in Teams that would be great!

  10. Unpublish/Pulish Function in Files section of Microsoft Teams

    It would be great if there could be the ability to upload mulitple documednts into the Files section of Teams but have them hidden or unpublished to students until they are required.

    This would assist in setting up all of my folders for various topics but not acutally giveing the students viewing access until neccessary.

    For example, with my VCE students, I like to give them practice assessments/exams and then once theyve completed it, I provide them with modeled answers. It would be great to have all of the documents already in Files, but pick and choose which ones are…

  11. Would like to mute entire class at once.

    I would like to be able to mute my entire class in TEAMS at one time instead of clicking on each individual student.

  13. Annoying page comes up with 'Try Again'

    Every time I click on something, it always crashes and says 'Try Again'. And then I have to load it all over again!

  14. Highlight most recent comments in a thread

    Our teams conversations move quickly, I often am adrift in a sea of new comments unaware of where I last left off. I appreciate that I am blue and everyone else is white, but it would be nice if there was another color that would temporarily highlight (and disappear after I mouse over) new comments and posts.

  15. add multiple channels to stream tab

    I'm using Teams in a classroom setting. I'd like to be able to create a tab called "Video" and add multiple channels to that tab. Why just one?

  19. Perhaps adding a feedback response to muting a student

    I am a teacher from Onslow Co. Schools and in our professional development we discussed having a feedback option to the mute button so teachers can give instantaneous behavior feedback.

  20. default document view change

    As a teacher I need to view uploaded documents from students. The normal view is much to small and I have to manually adjust the zoom on each students file in order to grade it. Either a zoom feature or the ability to change zoom in assignments would greatly help.
