  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Reply to a reply...

    To keep better context in the conversation, we need to be able to reply to a reply - and have that appear directly under the initial reply (at least one level). Example: Facebook does this.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow to delete or rename the channel named General.

    I want to rename this channel but it won't let me. I don't want it to be named that way.

  7. Unpost assignment

    There are many cases where I'd like to "unpost" an assignment. Perhaps I want to accept late work, or maybe I just accidentally clicked the post button. There needs to be a very easy way to unpost assignments for the whole class or for individuals

  8. 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.

  9. Sharing Screens in Teams

    In my organization we are converting from skype for business to teams. in skype we can share our screens without being on a skype call. In teams, in order to share our screens we have to be on a call in teams. It would be nice to be able to share our screen in teams without having to be on a call, similar to the way we can in skype.

  10. Printing student assignments

    With some assignments, teachers would like to print off student work. However, the steps are very cumbersome. For example, with Word documents, the teacher needs to open each document in the Word (Client) and print the document from there. In Microsoft Classroom, there were less steps to print. If there was an option where a teacher could print off an entire class' assignment from within a single screen, that would be very beneficial.

  12. When starting a new chat, it should be possible to select groups of students and teachers.

    Now we must choose students one and one. We have many groups of students in Office365 that should be available in the chat function. When we add new members to a Team we can use these groups.

  14. PDF files in Assignments

    The types of files that can be viewed in assignments is very limiting. Many times my students are submitting assignments in PDF format and I then have to download every assignment individually to view it and grade it. It would be much simpler if Assignments could preview PDFs.

  16. Sort Files Alphabetically

    Having the files tab default to sorting alphabetically would make finding files much easier.

  17. allow the owner to delete messages

    giving the team owner full delete/edit privilege will allow for the team to focus on the correct topic and allow for misplaced messages to be deleted by the team owner, also when deleting a message remove the visual display of "This message was deleted to allow the channel to flow better

  18. Sub channels

    much like how users can create sub pages in OneNote, I'd like the ability to create sub channels in a Team. It's helpful to use indenting on the channels to organize information .

  19. Microsoft Teams- Straight to Assignments

    Our school is utilizing Teams. We would like for the Home Screen within Teams to be Assignments rather than Conversations. We also would like for the Calendar to show the whole month (not just a week). Unless students are actively looking for the assignments, they won't see something due the next week.
