  1. Share a planner with someone not in a TEAM

    Other people may require to know the plan of a TEAM.

  2. You need a timer for inactivity like SKYPE.

    You go away for 5 minutes and your inactive or in management eyes
    "not working" in Teams. Others have asked for this feature in TEAMS that is in SKYPE but no response from our Team Corporate.
    I'll stick to SKYPE till the very end!

  3. Add a notification feature for Assignments

    Add a notification feature so when a student turns in work it send you an email so you know if they turned it in, or even a feature within teams showing who turned it in. That is one thing google classroom is beating you on.

  5. shifts admin levels

    We are finding that with only 2 access levels in shifts it means to many people can make changes or errors.

    Suggest an intermediate "supervisor" level be created to authorise holidays, absences, swops etc without being able to change an individuals position on the roster or even delete the team.

  8. Create past assignments

    Make it more natural to create assignments on the site that have already happened in the past. Such assignments will not have anything needing to be uploaded. Assignments currently seem to be targeted to a use case where it is assumed that students will upload files, but I am using assignments for work that is not submitted through the site.

    There is a workaround where I can put a future due date, then assign scores, then change the due date to a date in the past, but this is awkward and unnecessary.

  10. 3rd tab within assignments tab

    I dislike the new feature in teams->assignments. Where there are now 2 tabs. one called "to grade" and one called "graded". There needs to be 3rd tab called "ALL" I want to see all the kids even if they have not turned in or have been graded yet.

  14. American V British English phrasing

    In assignments the phrase 'turned in' is used to describe students finishing an assignment. I was wondering if it would be possible to have a more British English alternative phrase. Maybe 'completed' or 'submitted'? (we would say 'hand in' rather than 'turn in' when describing homework and students/teachers have found it hard to understand what 'turned in' means) Thanks

  15. Ability to remove assignments tab

    I work at a university and already have an LMS. It would be nice to customize the Teams sidebar to not include assignments since most of the people that use it are employees not students.

  17. Add Document Library Link In Add Resources

    I would be nice to have an option to add resources from SharePoint/Document Library when creating a new assignment. Currently you can add from OneDrive & Class Notebook or upload from the device but I have created a document library on SharePoint with all my resources that I can't seem to access from within Teams.

  18. youtube

    I'd love to be able to add Youtube channels and playlists to Microsoft Teams. I could set up the playlist on the Youtube side and then bring that content into Teams. Wouldn't that be great!

    Users wouldn't have to jump from group to group nor program to program!

  20. Export Class Notebook at the end of a course of study

    I teach an A Level course in the UK and my first cohort of students are now approaching the final exams after two years of study. I have used Teams and the Class OneNote extensively with this class and all of the students have comprehensive notes in their sections of the Class OneNote. It would appear that the work that the students have completed cannot be exported out of the Class NoteBook which makes a mockery of using it in the first place. I might just as well have stuck with the old handouts and class tasks for all the…
