When an assignment is set the students receive an email
When a teacher sets an assignment in Teams it would be very helpful if the students receive an email informing that an assignment has been set.

Absolutely. The email should have a link back to teams, and a link to download options for android, iOS, Mac and PC.
It is a real missing link.
Of course, you would not want to overwhelm - so the default would be to email a summary at a time set by the school ICT dept. (4:15pm default?)
Students could edit their preferences in teams (including ‘no emailed notifications’ and ‘email immediately for every update’)
This is an essential feature for user onboarding.
We have many staff using Teams brilliantly, but unless we ensure all students have the Teams app installed, they never know if an assignment has been set unless the teacher tells them.
The lack of email notifications for assignments is seriously limiting student and teacher engagement.
