  1. Building Assignments in Teams

    I used Classroom last school year and loved building assignments with this tool. There are many features found in Classroom that allowed teachers to build assignments easily and effectively that are not in TEAMS. Teachers need to be able to:


    1. Link Notebook pages to the assignment.

    2. Search for videos and resources to link to assignments from Teams like it was able to do so in Classroom.

    3. Share assignments with other Teams. To have to replicate assignments per Team for the courses taught is not practical.

  2. Month View in Assignment Area

    In addition to the week view, it would be awesome to also have the option to view by month.

  3. Turn Off Private Chat Option

    It would be nice to have an option to turn off the private chat. Students are constantly distracted by the temptation and spend a large portion chatting rather than doing their assignments.

  4. SCORM

    Please can you build something so we can use SCORM files in Teams, and pull out the scores of quizzes from within them and completion of the materials?

  5. Merging conversations in Teams

    As a Team Owner, I would like to be able to merge conversations. I see too many people start a new conversation when they should be replying to an existing one. Over time, they end up becoming fragmented.

  6. Create a hyperlink library in files

    In teams, I'd like to be able to post a list of links that can be accessed right from Teams. At this point, I have to create a Word Doc with hyperlinks on it then upload that to the Files tab. When my team tries to open the links, they have to open it in Sharepoint instead of the link going straight to the web.

  7. Don't create an email address when I create a new Team

    I have dozens and dozens of Teams...and we are going to create many more. Stop with the email addresses already! They never get used for anything useful and clog up the directory and confuse users. Let me turn off the email creation, or otherwise deactivate the email address automatically that is created. The default should be no working email address.

  8. Add multiple students at the same time using a semicolon

    When setting up a new class notebook, I can add multiple students when I separate my students usernames with a semicolon. This doesn't work in Teams, I have to add users one at a time. This is tedious when I have several classes of 45-50 students. I already have a trick I use to speed this up but it uses the semicolon separation functionality.

  9. Attach file to feedback

    I often provide video feedback to my students using a screenrecording app. It would be good if I could attach this file to the feedback, rather than emailing it separately.

  10. The ability for the teacher to share a conversation across multiple teams

    Having to copy and paste the same conversation in multiple classes(teams) can be redundant. Especially if I have an announcement for an event I want all my students to know about.

  11. People have no idea what sharepoint is. Stop confusing us with view in sharepoint.

    once we get to sharepoint it is massively confusing. I have never used a service more confusing than a sharepoint site that no one knows exists except through links to the exact location. You're losing people with this horrible structure.

  12. Forms on assignments in teams

    On teams when an assignment is created it would be excellent if we could create a form on it. E.g. A set of maths questions that a pupil can answer and receive feedback and a score as soon as submitted - the form results could then be displayed within the review by owner section.

  14. Default File Sorting

    I cannot find how to change the default file sorting. Currently it defaults to time uploaded. Whilst I would much prefer to sort it by title of file.

    I spend time ensuring that all my files have good filenames so that they sort. I cannot find how to change this default.

  15. I really need a class calendar! This way my whole class would be able to quickly see what is coming up for the month or view important dates

    If my class could see one calendar that I control, it would help the students and the parents stay on track.

  16. Edit Time that Assignments are Due

    Teachers need to be able to type-in the time that assignments are due, as the drop box method doesn't coincide with everyone's daily schedule, and we may want an assignment to be due at the start of class.

  17. Late Assignment Submission Notification

    Hello,

    Thanks for allowing resubmission. As a teacher I would like to be notified when a student submits an assignment after a scheduled deadline. This would help with knowing when students resubmit assignments after deadlines and when students have submitted work late.

  18. Move conversations between channels

    Please allow an admin (or a channel admin) to move a conversation from one channel to another one, in case it goes off-topic / not relevant to others.

  19. create links in Teams Files

    It is not possible to create a saved Web Link in the Teams view of files but it is possible to create a web Link in the Sharepoint view of Teams Files. When the link is clicked on in Sharepoint, the link works. In the Teams view a link just tries to download a file.

    Could web Links be made to work the same in the Teams view of Files as in the Sharepoint view of the same files.
