  1. Tasks in Teams

    I have a problem with Teams, how it provides feedback of Information; that there will always be a green tick that misleads my students to believe that the task is approved. But its not! Whether I mark the task 100% or 0% correct, it becomes a green check mark as a marker, as it is when its aproved. I want a better feedback for unsuccessful submissions. Is it possible to change this highly misleading feedback?

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Blinking Notification on Teams Taskbar

    When receiving a IM message within Teams, it would be nice for one of the settings to be a blinking notification in the task bar after the original message pops on the screen. Similar to Skype for Business, it would draw my attention to the fact that I have a pending message. It would be nice for that to be a feature under each notification section so someone could turn that on and be alerted with a blinking update notification.

  5. Cisco CUCM Integration

    It would be nice to be able to integrate video and voice in Teams with Cisco voice so my extension will ring at my desk and in Teams.

  6. Screen Size for Assignments

    For both students and teachers, the screen size for the assignment is so small. When a student opens an assignment, it would be better for it to become a full screen tab. When a teacher is checking, it would be much better for it to be a full screen tab rather than always having to click on the assignment again to grade.

  7. Classroom intergration

    Microsoft Classroom assignments tab should be added to teams, because Teams is a better fit for classess than Classroom conversations.

  9. Export of Rubric

    Hello!

    I would like to be able to export the rubric and have it look just as it does in the assignments page of Teams when I click on the rubric. It exports to Excel and requires a lot of adjusting.

    Thanks!

  10. Add multiple OneNote pages as a resource to assignment

    Currently, you can only specify one OneNote page for an assignment. I often have multiple pages that students would need as part of a single assignment.

  11. Join a new public team (that you do not belong to) via a web link - using the Get Link to Team functionality

    There is no reason why the "Get link to a team" cannot also work like the "Get a code" functionality -- there should be an easy click way to join a public team, without having to go to teams and enter in a code, or fruitlessly searching for the exact spelling of a public team.

    Being able to use the get link functionality for this would be self-explanatory, and would enable much more seamless joining of public teams.

  12. 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.

  13. Add email button to teams sidebar that integrates with 365

    Add an email button to the sidebar where I can view my exchange email. I use Teams and Outlook in my browser in two separate tabs. Integrating email and teams would allow for me to manage everything in one area. That would be awesome. Great work so far. Thanks!

  14. Ability to export conversation

    It would be really nice if you could export the conversation transcript for audit purposes.

    Alternatively the ability to print the transcripts into a PDF or Word document would really help. At present it's impossible to pull an extract of the conversation window, particularly useful when recording group project conversations.

  17. 20mb Assignment Limit?! - 10gb Limit.

    Why, oh why, is the assignment limit crippled to 20mb? This is such a critical flaw in the assignment workflow for anything other than basic word documents. Even PowerPoints with embedded audio and video exceed 20mb.

    Yes, in the year 2000, 20mb seemed like an acceptable limit, however, in 2017 this is a restrictive and bizarre limit.

    I thought this was built on SharePoint? So a 10gb file limit would make sense. Can we please do something about this sooner rather than later?

  18. 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.

  19. 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 .

  20. Custom font style and color for team chat users

    It would be great to be able to customize the font style and color when using the persistent team chat. This would enable you to further distinguish between members chatting.
