  1. 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.

  3. The quality of the video of the shared screen is blurred by Teams app and it's causing a problem.

    Just Increase the quality of the shared screen, and I think then it would be a lot better than.

  4. Integrate OneNote into Teams

    Right now, when you "integrate" OneNote as a Tab in a channel it is just a web browser that opens a notebook in OneNote Online. Could you really integrate OneNote into Teams like you did with Planner?

  5. Schedule when your Post appears

    Allow the ability to schedule when a post (or new conversation in Posts) appears similar to how Assignments can be scheduled. This will further help automate daily tasks for teachers.

  6. Blocking Users

    This feature would give each user a chance to block people who are messaging them. It might be useful for people who are getting spammed. The mute feature silences a chat but I think that it is also necessary to block someone altogether, similar to how it is possible to block someone on WhatsApp.

  8. Peer Feedback in assignments

    Add peer feedback in assignments.

    Peer feedback is a very powerfull learning acitivity. Would be very useful for both student and teachers if the teachers could just to let other students review and give feedback on assignments. Think of university classes with maybe 700 student how great it would be. So the features would need to make sure that a students gets feedback from some other student even if some students does not provide feedback. And it need to do pairing automatically. Futhermore the teachers should be able to add a rubric with feedback criteria so that the students know…

  9. Add the Ability to Sort all Lists in Teams

    Currently in Teams, lists of the members appear in several sections. i.e. When managing the Team under members and guests, inside the Grade tab in the General channel, In the Class Notebook, in assignments, in Teams meetings, etc... Please add the ability to sort these lists to make it easier for teachers to navigate the lists which as of currently are displayed with no discernable order. Some are sorted by last name, some by first name, and some with no order at all. I imagine that this would work like any other Microsoft product where I can filter how I…

  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. Teams in Alphabetical Order

    Could we have the teams arranged in alphabetical order as it would make them easier to find for those involved in a large number of teams?

  14. Uncompressed audio/ no AGC for Music classes - Band, Choir, Orchestra

    For music classes on Teams that are audio based, it is really important to have:


    1. uncompressed audio feature for original quality sound (Zoom has it)

    2. turn off auto gain control that compresses dynamics

    3. turn off any other "smart" audio features that will change the original sound quality such as background noise reduction or microphones that turn off until a sound is detected

    4. reduce sound lag (latency)

  15. 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!

  17. Alphabetical order of participants in Manage Team

    Please enable alphabetical ordering (by surnames) of Team members (in "Manage team" option), or instruct me if that possibility already exists. It should be default option to get participants (members) in alphabetical order.

  18. Team-specific notification settings

    Currently the notification settings apply to all teams. But not all teams are created equal...sometimes we don't want to get certain notifications from a specific team. It would be nice if we can specify a team to inherit the global notification setting or to have its own notification setting.

  19. Ease of use for primary grades

    Our Kindergarten and 1st grade students don’t create documents often, so if under add work they had the ability to add an image (and have Teams access the camera to take the image right there), add a recording (and have teams access the camera and microphone to capture a video) or add an audio file (and have teams access the microphone to capture the audio), this would truly be life changing to make this tool manageable for the little kids. I know that older students would benefit from these tools too, but it would be amazing to make this meaningful…
