  1. Notifications

    Rather than having notifications control for "Mentions," "Messages," and "Other," we need to have control of notifications from each Team we may be on and for each channel. I am part of 10 different Teams, but only 3 of them are vital to my day-to-day work. It would be wonderful if I could control how I receive notifications for those and see them based not only on Favorites and current Settings but if I could customize for each team and collaboration.

  3. Rubric should calculate partial points

    If my rubric contains partial credit, such as 0.5 points for an answer that is somewhat correct, the rubric does not calculate the partial points. It rounds down to the nearest whole number. If Teams is going to allow me to put 0.5 points in as a potential score for a category, it should calculate it correctly.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. Assigned Channels

    I would like a way to set a group of kids to a new channel within a group. Only kids that are assigned to that channel may view, post, or respond to anything posted within that channel.

  7. 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!

  8. 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?

  9. Drag and Drop Files

    Please can you add the facility to drag and drop files out of teams application rather than needing to download them.drag and drop files out of teams rather than needing to download them. It would be really helpful if you could make the files tab act more like explorer in the way it handles files.

  10. Share assignment with multiple teams??

    It would be awesome to be able to share the same assignment with multiple teams. As it is, I have to copy/paste my assignment multiple times - sometimes as many as twenty!

  11. Team Search

    Team search only seams to search the first letters. The search doesn't search for other words in the title. This makes it hard to find Teams unless you know the exact title.

  12. Allow for planner to be a tab in a private channel

    We love the new feature to have private channels within a team although at the moment we aren't able to add a Planner as a tab within a private channel. This would be great otherwise a few of our team members need to create a separate team in order to achieve this.

  13. Be better than Google Classroom by...


    • Allowing teacher to ink while grading assignments.

    • Connecting Teams to LMS so assignments and grades entered in Teams automatically gets entered in the school district's LMS.

    Teams needs to get better before teachers will leave Google Classroom. If Microsoft can get the above items done, it would leapfrog passed Google.
    C'mon, we are waiting.

  15. Wiki Search

    The current search doesn't search from Team wikis.

    Currently we have several wikis in use for development, changes, link libraries etc and finding certain small wiki entry can be time consuming.

  16. 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.

  18. Flag a message and add to ToDo App

  19. Assignments - Printing Comments and Feedback (for EV purposes)

    Ability to print feedback view of an assignment with:


    • The assignment itself


    • Comments within the assignment


    • Summative feedback comment at the end


    This would be great for when people need to print off work for external verifiers.

  20. rename class notebook in teams

    Rename a class notebook in Teams
    I would like to be able to rename a class notebook created by Teams.

    This is because they all begin with "Notebook for..." ("Notatblokk for..." in my language region). This makes it very hard to distinguish a list of notebooks in the OneNote app.

    A notebook can be renamed in Sharepoint, but this breaks the link between Teams and the notebook.
