  2. Notices when anything new has been updated to the team

    Anytime anything is added to one of the teams or a new message, users should get some kind of notice that there are changes and show under activity where they are. It should already be a part of the function for Teams. Instead of having to keep looking to see if anyone has updated something and WHERE?

  3. Add a quick access toolbar to onenote

    OneNote 2016 has a quick access toolbar and I hope to see this feature on the OneNote desktop app soon. It's extremely useful for grabbing different pen colors, etc.

  4. Give the ability to make an assignment optional.

    As a teacher, I sometimes give assignments that are optional. It would be nice to be able to somehow mark this in Teams so when a student doesn't do the assignment, it doesn't show as missing.

  7. Unviewable Assignements

    Teachers can create assignments that students won't see. For example, giving students credit for completing something in class that is not a formal assignment.

  9. OneNote - roll up up tags

    I'm using One-note as a personal organizer and it would be great to have the ability to roll up tags (i.e. 'to do' items from various sections and pages) into a single report and have the ability to refesh backwards into those same sections and pages as they marked complete.

  11. can you make assignements private once handed in

    Is there a way to make an assignment private or unviewable once handed in? It would be really nice to be able to distribute tests and then mark them, but not have the students still be able to fully access the assignment after the due date. Also make assignments hand-in times down to 10min or so not 30.

  15. Ovlasti vlasnika grupe

    Vlasnik grupe bi trebao imati ovlasti brisanja poruka članova grupe te uvid u IP adresu računala s kojeg dolaze poruke. U slučaju krađe identiteta kakav smo nedavno imali, učenik se zaboravio odlogirati te je korisnica istog računala pisala proste poruke u njegovo ime. Morali bismo moći dokazati da je poruka napisana baš na tom računalu što ni CARNET ni Microsoft nisu napravili za nas. Ne bi bilo loše i automatski odlogirati korisnika nakon 30 minuta neaktivnosti.

    Give teachers the ability to toggle on a display of the team code for when others join later on (especially educator Teams).

  19. Being able to see an individual student's completed assignment with feedback in a discreet section

    So useful for parents' evenings and one to one meetings with students but doesn't seem to be a current feature?

  20. Please make working in SharePoint via Teams more efficient: I want to not be returned to main folder each time I upload/edit something.

    Whenever I update/upload a file, work on one etc in Sharepoint via the link in Teams, when the action is finished, I am returned to the main folder, rather than the subfolder I worked in. This is very irritating, especially when more work needs to be done in the same subfolder.

    Similarly, the folders are never shown in alphabetical order and I can never figure out how they first appear. I have to re-select alphabetical ascending filter each time. I am losing precious time trying to locate the folder/ file I need and then re-enter the correct subfolder and re-sort…
