  1. Multiple accounts

    I use Teams in two different organizations. In the apps, I have to log out and log in every time I want to switch. Is it possible to use two or more different accounts in the, like in Outlook?

  2. People with hands raised should be listed in the order they raised their hands, not alphabetically

    In accordance with Robert's Rules of Order, I would like it if people who raised their hands were listed in the order that they raised their hands, so that I can take questions or comments in the order that they arose. I have noticed meeting organizers sometimes give undue attention to people whose names come first in the alphabet because of the way the names are listed currently.

  3. Increase maximum meeting participants to 500

    Currently, meetings are limited to 250 participants.
    We have several departments within our organization containing 250-500 employees.
    Because the current Teams meeting maximum size is 250, we use other applications to host meetings for these departments.
    We would like to be able to use Teams for these larger group meetings.
    Please increase the number of participants in meetings to 500.

    We are expanding the limit for Teams meetngs from 300 to 1,000 active participates. Similarly, we are including a view-only experience for up to 20,000 people. For more information on the Advance Comms SKU which will include this experience, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-add-on-licensing/advanced-communications.

  4. 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.

  5. Add the "specific people" or "owners" option to who can bypass the lobby.

    For education, there can be multiple teachers (owners) of a class page, but only the person who scheduled the meeting can bypass the lobby or way too many people (students) can bypass it. My co-teacher and I would like to both be able to bypass it. Having the "specific" people option like in the "Who can present" drop down would help immensely.

  6. EDU: We need to have more control for "join link" in "Meeting settings" in the "Microsoft Teams admin center".

    In edu organisations - from security reasons - we need a new feature to restrict informations about scheduled online meeting only to really invited attendees.

    At this time we can control anonymous acces, set lobby, set presenters role but we can't control inviting people process to meetings (students to lessons) because links to planned meetings is visible to all on groups canals, in calendars, etc. This is also sending via mails to people in invited teams so it is poor security indeed to rely on that this link never leaking.

    To have control of it we need on "Email invitation"…

  7. Hard disable students video during a meeting (so they cannot turn on their cams)

    I want a button to do hard block on all video feeds from participants. The setting you have now can be overridden by participants. There is risk of them showing inappropriate body shots or material.

  8. LTI Integration

    With Teams replacing Class Notebook, there is a focus to use this in Education. If Teams worked with LTI, it would allow Learning Management Systems such as Moodle and Canvas to assign users to a Team through direct single sign on. This creates a more seamless experience for students and decreases the amount of admin needed to get them in.

    Further to this, each group inside an LMS could be given a separate team or private channel in Teams to Collaborate. This would be massively beneficial for Education.

    great news!  ·  Justin Chando responded

    Thanks to all of your feedback and thanks to our partners and their tireless efforts, we’ve made it possible for you to now set up a Microsoft Teams meeting for your online classroom directly from within your learning management system (LMS).

    This new capability allows you to quickly enable remote learning for your students and faculty by bringing the power of Teams directly into your LMS. We already have integrations launched across the world’s top LMSs; Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace, Schoology, and itsLearning!

    Learn more about these new integrations and get started today here; https://educationblog.microsoft.com/en-us/2020/03/microsoft-teams-meeting-creation-now-available-in-canvas-blackboard-schoology-brightspace-and-itslearning/

    The best part is this is only the beginning because as Teams evolves, we’ll continue to improve our LMS integrations as well. Thank you!

  9. Letter grades (A+, A, A-) and customization

    Teams for Education Assignments and Grading
    I would like to see letter grades (e.g. A+, A, A- etc.) and an option for grading and not just numbers. If we could customise it (e.g. choose the grade range), even better/

  10. Live Parent Access to Assignment Details

    The parent digest isn't enough for most of our parents, they want to be able to see the data on any day of the week.

    The ability to log in (or have an app) and only see homework activities set every day (the ability, ie a tick box, to identify homework vs classwork activities would be ideal) to keep track of assignments is needed.

    At the moment we have to use another app for this which doubles up on admin and means we are writing in one tool that the work is in Teams.

    Unfortunately I need to switch this back to Under Review. The feature team is investigating how best this could be implemented.

  13. Alert students of feedback when assignment is graded.

    Students need an alert telling them, or a direct link to graded assignments so they are prompted to read feedback given by a teacher. As it stands. Teachers can put feedback but students have no prompt to read that information or even know that an assignment has been graded.

  14. Teacher Upload Student's Assignment

    Teachers should be able to upload a student's work that has been submitted via an alternate method (e.g. email or even a scan of a paper copy) to the review section in Teams. This allows for teachers to store all information about an assignment in one place. It will also remove the annoying calculation of those who have and haven't handed the work in, which to an external eye makes it look like students aren't completing work.

  15. Auto-save Quiz, Have Quiz timer and auto submit the form when timer ends

    If we have a timed quiz in Teams, the student has no option of knowing how much time is left. When the deadline passes, the student has no option of submitting the form and looses all points.

    1. There should be a visible timer / clock showing how much time is left before submission

    2. If the student has the form open, at the end of the clock, the form should be auto submitted with the answers that were already given/selected

    3. There should be an auto save option for the form, in case the student needs to reload the page/looses connectivity, so…

  16. Live event concurrency

    Increase the number of concurrent live events to more than 15 per tenant - required to enable large cohort remote teaching which is a massive priority for universities at the time of the Coronavirus worldwide incident.

    Universities will often have more than 15 large lectures running at the same time and increasing the number of live events to 30 or 45 will allow universities and colleges to remotely teach large numbers concurrently

  17. Set a countdown timer for an Assignment

    According to current features, opening and closing times & dates can be set for an assignment. It is very useful that if we can set a timer to an assignment. As an example, if we make the assignment available for students from morning 6.00 am to evening 6.00 pm, But the time allocated for the students to complete the assessment is only one hour. so, When ever the students open the Assessment within the available time, a count down timer begins, and what ever they have done is saved automatically and submitted automatically at the end of one hour or…

  18. Monitor ALL breakout rooms

    Would love to have the ability to view ALL active breakout rooms in a channel and to be able to monitor them and with one click of a button, listen in. This will make it easier to encourage a safe and open discussion :)

  19. View all assignments under assignments tab

    Under the assignment tab there should be a place where I can see all my assignments, and be able to filter between completed ones and outstanding assignments. The assignments should also be in chronological order. This would be very helpful, thanks.

  20. Education allow uploading to stream for A1

    A recent changed announced for A1 and A1 Plus users means that meeting recordings won't be uploaded to Stream automatically. Instead the video will be available for download in the chat window.

    As a school we've used meeting recordings for every online lesson which has allowed students not in the lessons itself to watch back content. Downloading a 1 hour lesson on a phone for example isn't acceptable. Meaning this change will make use of online lessons for our students a lot more difficult. Please consider holding back this change until you can offer a choice on ending the meeting/recording…
