  1. Small improvement to UI

    Pressing on the Team name below the search bar, should not take you to the Members-view, instead it should take you to the Channels-view. You need the Channels-view much more often than the Members-view.

    Additionally: when you have a lot of Teams, the left navigation pane might become a bit cluttered. It is easier to browse to a certain channel by clicking on the Team name (that is seen below the search bar), than browsing the left pane with all the Teams and channels.

  2. rename sharepoint page tabs

    I can rename a page in sharepoint, but when adding the page as a tab in teams it does not show the new name of the Home or News pages.

  3. Digital Daily Scrum

    We use teams for our daily check-in for our distributed team. As is, it works really good to facilitate this but i think a few tweaks could make it better. Conversations are a type communication tab, what a about a Scrum channel or wall or tab that would contain conversations per day and allow the user to reply directly to each posting. Right now we have One thread with the whole teams checkin on it, great! But what if we could also have a why to reply to individual conversations. These threads could be expanded and collapsed as needed.

  5. seperate file areas for classes

    when creating a new class team, withing the files section there should be a folder that the student has access to along with the teacher but no one else, similar to the onen note sections, as currently we have teachers creating a team for the notebook and then manually creating a folder structure and sharing folders for their personal onedrive

  6. Marking on a Smartphone

    Is it possible to have the facility to mark on a Smartphone. The reason I would like to do this is so that I can use the speech-recognition facility on my phone and speak directly into the Feedback box. Alternatively, is it possible to have the 'dictate' feature pop up when typing feedback into the box on Assignments. Either/both would be a great help!

  7. Expanding and contracting menu in teams online Class Notebook

    I would like to be able to view expanded or collapsed sub pages of sections in my Teams Class Notebook. Currently, this feature is only available when my students open their class notebook in the desktop/local version of OneNote. This would aide my students who may have difficulties with organization and/or visual challenges. It would significantly reduce the visual clutter. It would also demonstrate to the students organization of content and increase more effective navigation of the Class Notebook tool.

  10. Standard v. Non-Standard Apps

    Could you separate standard v. non-standard apps when adding an app in Teams? In other words, separate them so users know which ones require an account or lisc.

  11. Can't view large rubrics on Android app

    I have started using rubrics with my assignments. One that is particularly wordy cannot be viewed properly on the Android app. The top few boxes are available to see, but it is not possible to scroll down and see the entire rubric. This goes for viewing it after feedback has been given too. Can this be fixed so the pupils can scroll down through the rubric to see the whole thing?

  13. Invert Conversation Board

    Due to social media conditioning us that the newest/most important stuff is at the top of the page, I think it would be helpful if the conversation board updated from the top down instead of from the bottom. I have students not checking for notifications at the bottom of the conversation. They always want to look at the top. This would help me in making sure my students actually SEE the things I am sending them.

  14. makerspace classroom (3D Printer support)

    Structure Teams to support a makerspace classroom. A start would be to add the following two apps:
    -a very easy 3d rendering program that kids can use to easily build/tweak a model from existing elements
    -an app that allows their finished model to be queued within teams, allowing the teacher (who has access to the 3d printer) to systematically print their models from the team app.

  17. Add member to another Team via Manage Team

    We have students are in different teams for different projects/events.

    If at "Manage Team" i could add student to another team, this would speed up the team creation process.

    Currently, i need to type in student's email address or name. This is quite tedious.

  18. Anotation des documents

    Je suis en train de consulter des fichiers dans mon équipe sur MS Teams, et j'avais besoin de commenter le document : ça serait chouette de pouvoir y mettre des commentaires, comme on le fait dans un document Word ou un PDF. Ca permet d'échanger sur un même doc avec tout le monde, directement dans Teams.

  20. Simple file upload API

    I'd like a simple API endpoint that I can just PUT a file to and have it added (or updated) to the team.

    The use case is that I have a diagram that is updated once an hour that contains some information relevant to a project.

    Currently that file is emailed to the relevant people.

    I want to upload that file automatically into teams without having to use the full blown sharepointAPI so that it's available for all team members.

    Using the sharepoint API is undesirable because it needs my own credentials to create the bearer token needed for the…
