  1. Keep file links even when it is moved into a different folder

    Currently, files posted in conversation appear in the File tab. But any attempt at organising the files into folders will disable the link. This is very inconvenient. As long as the file remains in the channel, it should still be active.

  2. Aufgaben abgeben

    Wenn die Studenten eine Datei in "Aufgaben" abgeben müssen. Dann passiert es häufig, dass sie nicht so lange warten, bis die Datei hochgeladen ist. Sie drücken schon während des Uploads auf den Button "abgeben". Der Upload wird dadurch unterbrochen und die Aufgabe ohne Datei abgegeben.
    Vorschlag: Die Schaltfläche "abgeben" sollte während des upload Prozesses nicht aktiv sein. Erst nach erfolgtem Datei-Upload sollte diese Schaltfläche wieder aktiv sein.
    Danke!

  4. Add a Atendance List on the Shift Addon

    the shift addon should have an asistance list or a way to integrate with the atendance hardware. This Feature is useful For example in universities some courses are 2 times a week or students arent in the period so this would be great. the asistance list should have the diferentiation between late, unjustify abscence andjustify abscence, with the ability to change from unjustify to justify or late. Check http://attendance.edupage.org/

  6. On the Mac Teams does not remember where it was placed between instances.

    This means if set to start at login it ends up on top of other things and has to be moved every login.

  7. Attach File to Assignment After it is created

    After an assignment is created in Teams it would be nice for the teacher to be able to add files to a students assigment. For example, adding an image of art work that was completed and then allow the student to write about it in their OneNote notebook.

  8. Add new contact and then add them to the group, not by group in the first instance

    At the moment, in Chat, you have to go to the group options (the chevrons drop menu) in order to add a new contact. It would be more intuitive if there was a contact lookup immediately on navigating to Chat and then you can select the grouping(s) you wish to include the contact in.

  9. Improve "Review Student Work" within classroom notebook.

    Provide the functionality within Classroom Notebook to allow teachers to search for or select student pages within section groups and or subsections of a hierarchical organization structure as is currently allowed within only within "Sections" . A tiered organizational structure consisting of Section groups, subgroups, sections, pages and various subpages is necessary for teachers and student to organize notes and work assignments in classes with complex subject matter. (Note: request for tiered hierarchical structure requested in separate idea post also dated 12-19-2018)

    Thanks!

  13. Can we allow an option to change everyone from Member to Owner without having to adjust the settings one by one? Thanks

    If we want an entire staff team to be given ownership to recruit members on your behalf or edit the content, this would be handy. Thanks

  14. Small improvement to UI

    Pressing on the Team name below the search bar, should not take you to the Members-view, instead it should take you to the Channels-view. You need the Channels-view much more often than the Members-view.

    Additionally: when you have a lot of Teams, the left navigation pane might become a bit cluttered. It is easier to browse to a certain channel by clicking on the Team name (that is seen below the search bar), than browsing the left pane with all the Teams and channels.

  15. rename sharepoint page tabs

    I can rename a page in sharepoint, but when adding the page as a tab in teams it does not show the new name of the Home or News pages.

  16. Digital Daily Scrum

    We use teams for our daily check-in for our distributed team. As is, it works really good to facilitate this but i think a few tweaks could make it better. Conversations are a type communication tab, what a about a Scrum channel or wall or tab that would contain conversations per day and allow the user to reply directly to each posting. Right now we have One thread with the whole teams checkin on it, great! But what if we could also have a why to reply to individual conversations. These threads could be expanded and collapsed as needed.

  18. seperate file areas for classes

    when creating a new class team, withing the files section there should be a folder that the student has access to along with the teacher but no one else, similar to the onen note sections, as currently we have teachers creating a team for the notebook and then manually creating a folder structure and sharing folders for their personal onedrive

  19. We really need "fuzzy" searching capability

    Teams search function is good, but it could do with having a smarter system which allowed for typing errors and close-but-not-quite-close-enough word/phrase matches. I know SharePoint has an ability to do this, so why not add that to Teams?
