    • 팀원들이 메시지를 확인하였는지 알 수 있는 방법은 없나요?

      메시지에 숫자 등으로 읽지 않은 사람 수를 표시한다든지 하는 방법이 있으면 좋겠습니다.

        • assessment analysis

          Classroom used to provide an overview analysis for assessments sent out, this was generally a breakdown of grades. It would be great if classroom could show this

          • blocking profile pictures

            Allow users to block people's profile pictures. We can't choose what a team member might select for a photo but we SHOULD be able to block a profile picture that we find objectionable, silently.

            • Allowing duplicated booklets/teams

              Would it be possible to allow for a team / layout of the team (resources or notebooks) to be duplicated for different classes?

              • Select multiple tasks - Planner

                This function would be helpful if you want for example to apply certain labels to those tasks or even delete it or mark as completed.

                  • Activate and deactivate a class that is not in use by owner.

                    Once Teams is synced with the Student information system all classes are active for both teachers and students. This is extremely problematic for teachers that don't use or understand Teams. Students have the ability to use conversations while teachers are unaware. This can cause bullying and harassment without the teachers knowledge. Please consider Teams for the classroom to be deactivated until the Owner is ready to activate.

                    • it would be great if you could batch assign assignments to multiple teams

                      If I have a grade that goes out to all or multiple teams it would be nice to have an option to give one assignment to multiple teams without having to create the assignment multiple times

                          • Make the "points" on the assignment a float rather than integer. I often say to student "but I only nicked you half a point".

                            Make the "points" on the assignment a float rather than integer. I often say to my student "but I only nicked you half a point". Even though I could double the number of points and drop one, it is important to let the student "see" it as a minor error.

                              • Open Office File in Full Application

                                Using the Mac Teams app, I'd like to open a file in an Office application locally rather than have it open using the Online app. My boss runs a Windows device and he doesn't have the same problem, so I think that it only needs to be rolled out on the Mac app.

                                  • Open assignment documents in a new window

                                    When using the "what students turn in feature" amd attaching a file. Allow students to edit their work "Word" document in a new window. A button next to it would work.

                                    On many of student laptops have a resolution of 1366x766 and it only allows for a very small portion of the screen to be used.

                                        • For "Files", can you please add folders to enhance organization?

                                          For actual team (eg. hockey, or coaching) sites, including a long list of files ends up being quite disorganized. Can you please allow for the option of folders as well?
                                          Thank you.
