  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Accumulated score without the need to manipulate the excel file

    It would be very useful to know the points accumulated per student and the total possible points. It is too cumbersome to download the Excel file and start filtering the score of each activity to make the total sum of points and, furthermore, it is too difficult to know what the total points awarded to all activities are. Thus, if there were 30 activities during a school term and the total of points is 4550, it is too laborious: 1) to know the final score (4550) without having to download the Excel file and find the maximum score for each…

  4. 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.

  5. Pin Posts in Channel

    Enable posts to be pinned within a channel, so that the pinned post is the first one seen when a member goes to that channel.

  6. Need option that can switch record modes from organizer to participants.

    Need option to switch record modes. Organizers should have the option to easily control who end up on recordings for meetings. Its not always that you need 9 faces on the screen especially as a teacher I need to have recordings that I can share with students if they missed my session with only me as the presenter on the screen. There should be some type of toggle that should easily control the outgoing recorded video.

  7. 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 :)

  8. Be able to rotate and zoom in on images submitted in the assignments tab

    When students upload images of their work under the assignments tab, make it possible for the teacher to be able to rotate and zoom in on the image within Teams. Without having to download it to their computer.

  9. Prevent student from leaving a class team

    We should be able to lock Team / Office 365 group in such way that students can't leave the team.

    This needs to be considered from both an IT-pro as well as team owner perspective

  10. All assignments at a glance

    Instead of having to search for the assignments in each subject, it would be useful to have a list for the students of all the future deadlines of the assignments (In a chronological order), so they can see at a glance what they need to do next.

  11. Attendance list

    When downloading the attendance list, it would be nice if the first and last name were separated into their own column. This would allow the teacher to sort by either first name or last name making it much faster and easier to take attendance. This would allow for more instruction time with the students as every minute is important.

  12. Record the whiteboard during a live meeting

    During a live Teams meeting, you can use the Whiteboard, but it doesn't record. For classroom purposes, this makes it difficult for students who go back to watch the lesson later. They can't see what was done on the Whiteboard.

  13. Add the option to flip the camera (normal rather than mirror-image) to show hard copy documents the right way round

    Be able to choose the camera mode so it gives you mirror image (which is the default), or flip it to 'normal' view so that if you have to make reference to a hard copy document or a whiteboard behind you, the writing isn't backwards!

  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.

  17. Attach file to feedback (screen recording, video)

    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.

  18. Submitting of a task on a restricted network

    Can Microsoft make it possible to let users deliver tasks on a restricted network (when taking tests/exams) while access to chat/files (and such) in the Teams app still is restricted/unaccessable?

  19. Access to Meetings Options when creating a Meeting

    Seems to be that you can only change the options for a meeting once it has been created and scheduled.

    Please make them available when creating the meeting.

    Especially useful if you're using Meet Now for a classroom of children, and you don't want all of them to be a Presenter.

  20. Delete past Team chats in chat mode (both sender and receiver chats).

    Chats should not be never-ending storage of a chat, and we should be able to delete individual chats as instructors or keep them ( both the sender and receiver chat). I realize we can delete our own, but we need the option to delete both our own as well as the students. We should have that option.
