Assignment per channel
Is it possible to make an assignment per channel. Instead of make an assignment on the General channel.
We want to use a team as class. The channels are the subjects and in each "subject channel" we want to make an seperate subject assignment

I have been trying to set up a class in teams since we are being directed to use it. I teach at a vocational school that breaks everything down to a certificate. What I did was build teams based on those certificates. So, my program has 4 teams; General Tech, Production Tech, Adv. Tech, System Tech. Within those teams, each channel was a subject for that certificate. Not being able to create assignments in each channel has the students confused. They can view all assignments from the tag in the left bar but need to access assignments in each channel. I will go from 4 teams to having a team for each subject. No need for channels, each channel will be a team.
Urgent. This would help us alot!

My school would love to see this happening. We have quite large classes, we use create a channel for each subject. This is really confusing for our largest classes, where they have more than 10 teachers and subjects.
Please Please make this happen!
Agree. This would make a huge improvement to the product as a classroom teaching tool.
I assume by the increased posting on this topic recently that I'm not the only one using Teams for COVID-19 distance learning solution that is annoyed with the lack of this option. We have our teams broken down by classroom, and the channels are for each subject. For example, we're encouraging students to check the Math channel for the online meetings, notifications, etc. But then when we try assigning them work, it goes to the General channel, which makes it very difficult to track. Please come up with a solution for this.
Having an Assignment per channel would make it much easier for my students!
Urgent request please.
yes please, this makes it posible to hold classes together and create subjects as channels.
PLEASE DO THIS ALREADY!!!
I am a secondary school teacher trying to set up distance education and online learning resources. This feature would save many headaches.
Hello, I totally confirm the below requests!!! It creates big issues in our organisation as well. For me it is a mandatory feature!!!
Yes please! Assignments tab per channel would be so helpful!

I must admit I was really surprised when I found out this was not possible! This is really a basic requirement (and a very obvious one) for many teachers using Teams with their classes.

I work in vocational training.
Our students travel with the same class for 4 years.
For each class we set up a single team on teams.
Each channel represents a subject which is usually taught for one semester.
At the end of the training, the entire team can be archived.
We also absolutely need the possibility to assign access rights and tasks to each channel.
A real need

Our training institution is having the same issue.
To get around this you basically have to segregate a team into more teams unnecessarily which seems counter-intuitive
Our teams list is turning into a mess and fast becoming too difficult to manage, being able to branch groups into channels with independent assignments would be a great option.
It's a small change that would make a powerful difference
This is a very good idea. Makes life easier for the students.

Agree that this feature is needed. Teachers are creating one Team per course, with a channel for each Unit. Each unit is assessed with several assignments. Courses aren't assessed at course (team) level, but at the lower unit (channel) level. We could have one Team per unit, but that would be a lot of Teams!
We are just about to start using Teams and Class notebook. The assignment tool is brilliant but I don’t understand how it can work effectively if there are two teachers per team. Each team can have a channel to chat with their students..... so why can’t there be a separate assignment tool for each teacher?
I teach the final two years in a British curriculum school. We share the curriculum. So we share a team but we are each responsible for giving homework/assignments.... this has to be separated to make sense surely?

Students have really engaged with this software.

This is definitely needed for our vocational programmes of study, as the students study multiple qualification units with different teachers. This would dramatically improve the user experience of our students, as they current have to have separate teams for each unit of study, plus Maths and English.
