  1. Allow for notifications when adding file for the members of a Team

    My students and I would like to be notified when a file is dropped in the tab without having to have a message that tells them so.

  2. Set business open hours in Shifts

    If a business is only open 8-5, then we don't need to see the 5-8 part of the day when viewing shifts on desktop. There should be a setting where you can change the "open hours" so only those are displayed.

  3. New tab should take name of file as default title

    When adding a new tab of a file type, e.g. Word, the tab gets the default title of the file type, in this case Word. One now has the option to rename this. Often a person forgets and only afterwards realize you should rename the tab. This is easily done, but the message in the conversation space still shows the old name which is not ideal. The tab should rather take the file name as the default title. This can be overwritten when necessary.

    Alternatively, when the file tab is renamed, so should the message in the conversation space be…

  4. Video and audio document size (assignment)

    Video and audio documents should be easier to drop. There is always problems loading video documents of a certain size, even for small video presentation under 5 minutes.

  6. Archiving all teams and OneNote documents on-prem or in cloud.

    In July we will be going through the process of Archiving our Teams for this academic year. There will be a script that is run that will put an 'Archive' prefix to the team. There will be a 3 month time limit before we deleted the archived accounts.

    However, we need to archive all the Teams and OneNote files locally, so teachers can refer back to students work at any given time. As you can imagine we will have a full years worth of students work saved onto Teams/OneNote and we will need to back this up.

  9. Setting to view groups in collapsed mode by default

    I would love to see an Option to set the contact groups to display in collapsed mode by default. The groups can help you locate users quickly, but if you have a lot of groups, and they are always expanded by default, you either have to collapse each one as you search, or scroll forever to locate someone. They won’t even stay collapsed when you manually do each one…

  11. I've erased an assignment that I had created and assigned to multiple classes, but I am unable to erase the post from the Conversations

    I'd like to be able to erase the post that appeared on the conversations page when I created an assignment because I have recently erased that assignment but the post is still there.

  14. Search should include folder names

    The search function is otherwise great, but it does not include folder names, like a search in file explorer. Surely that must be a mistake?

  15. Make word tab bold for new content

    We often collaborate in one central word document (with a table). It is in files, but also has its own tab for easy access. But we are not notified of changes until we open it. In OneNote, tabs are bold when there is new content. Could this also be the case in Teams word tabs?

  17. Open documents in a new tab without having to download

  19. OneNote: Class Notebook - Add functionality to allow for distribution of "Section Groups" with tabs sub structure

    Allow for the distribution of Section Groups with the option to include the relevant hierarchical substructure of sub groups, tabs, pages and sub pages etc.

    In Onenote we have the ability to distribute only new sections and pages. It is necessary for teachers to be able to distribute a complete note-taking structure for student notes, and organizational structure for keeping track of student work assignments as well. Therefore we need to be able to distribute parts of previously created organizational structures beyond just "New Tabs".

    This impacts the functionality of "Review Student Work" through the Classroom Notebook as well. Teachers…
