  1. Allow the ending of a meeting to occur by the meeting organiser (i.e. the teacher of a classroom)

    Please allow teachers who run a classroom via Teams the option to be able to end meetings. With the imminent closure of schools and needing to run classes online it would be very helpful to be able to do this. Teachers are not going to leave a meeting to let a student run it due to the plethora of issues that would arise so please allow us as the teacher in the Team to end a meeting.

  3. Separate functions and chat conversations into new windows

    It would be very helpful if we could open Teams items in a separate window. For example, in many meetings, we are using webcams, screen sharing, chat, and multiple channel tabs at the same time. It takes many clicks and a lot of waiting to switch from the chat to a channel tab to a file and back to the chat, and I can't see them all at once, which is really inefficient.

    It's also impossible to view multiple files at once, unless you open each one in a separate browser window or desktop program (which takes 15-30 seconds or…

  4. Multiple Screen Share

    In Teams you can only share one screen at a time. I work in an office where we use 2-3 screens. Being able to share multiple screens at one time would be very beneficial.

  5. 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.

  6. Stop Allowing Participants to Unmute Themselves

    Meetings should not have been ported over to Teams Education without the ability for the educator to control the muting of participants. Being able to unmute as an attendee works fine for adults but does not work in a school setting.

    Enable the meeting organiser to control the muting of participants and whether they can unmute themselves or not

  7. Have the mute button flash and stay on top of the screen when on mute so we can easily identify when we are muted.

  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!

  11. Ability to change the meeting calendar view to monthly

    In the meetings tab, the calendar shows the day, or a future day only. It would be nice to be able to chose a view that showed the full month for planning ahead.

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Draft posts

    I would like to be able to draft items in teams that I can either manually post at a later time or schedule to post at a later time. I am a teacher and would like to be able to set items (such as a conversation post) ahead of time but then post when my students are ready for that specific information

  19. Create own Teams Icon

    Please allow people to upload their own image for icons for Teams. If a teacher has multiple teams in a learning area eg English having 4 Teams with the same Shakespeare image does not help quick recognition. The system to upload an icon for the Office 365 Accounts would be perfect!

  20. 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.
