    • When I use the app, emoticons show up on PCs looking like a sketch and very primitive. It would be great if we could sync these.

      The lack of consistency from app to PC can make understanding more challenging. This picture was a laughing face with tears on my phone, but on the computer looks a bit evil.

          • remove assignments Feature

            We have the education licence but as a public library we don't have classes - so in teams we would like to remove that tab as it is confusing some staff members

            • Allow owners to create connectors in class Teams

              Allow owners (Teachers) in a Class Team to create a connector that then posts to the channel, e.g. from a Yammer feed, but the connector can only be edited or removed by other admins - but so that members (students) see the connector feed.

              • Enable Chat Between Owner and Member - I'd like a setting where a student can enter a chati item that will only be seen by the teacher (owne

                In a school setting allowing everyone to see every post can be a problem. Under the general tab, it would be helpful a setting allowed student posts to be seen by the owner (teacher) ONLY and had a way for the teacher to reply ONLY to that student. Other apps have this capability but it would be good to have one place where it all happens - TEAMS! I like the idea of setting-up channels for topic-based discussion but also have the ability to limit access to the way I mentioned above. (Kind-of like messenger in FaceBook?)

                • Enable teacher to reset students' passwords

                  A lot of students don't know their password and have to go through a super long procedure to reset it.

                  • Move Teams pop up buttons off the chat text

                    I like to use Teams to chat with colleagues quite often and today I noticed that because for every line of the chat there is a pop-up set of options to Like, Save, or Other Options (The thumb, flag, and dots) I am not able to click on a very short link that is at the end of a chatted line- it is covered up by those button options.
                    Could there be a way to change where the pop-up button options appear so that none of the line of chat is obscured? That would be helpful and a nice improvement…

                      • Fuse different teams

                        Be able to fuse teams by dragging one onto the other. This way, as a teacher, I would be able to join different classrooms as a bigger group to facilitate communication without having to find all my students again.

                        • Adding 'Time Spent' field to each task in the Planner

                          In the Planner, record time spend for each task assigned for a project could more accurately track the effort each assignee spent on that project. The project could last 5 month but each task might only took 10 days of effort for one person and 2 month for a second assignee and 5 hours for a third assignee as everyone's tasks could be different. Reporting on these would help the project team to understand where resources spent their time and effort in. This gives better understanding of the project progress, what happened etc.
