  1. Same functionality as regular Class Notebook

    I've set up several class notebooks through both onenote and now in teams. I can't see where I can have a teacher only area in the ones created through teams. Second area of concern is using the class notebook addin in onenote 2016 to edit notebooks created in teams. Lastly I set up a staff notebook in both apps to see the differences. I cannot see the different sections through the teams site on either (I linked my other staff notebook) notebook. So questions are these items still being added?

    • markbook for classes

      There should be a markbook which automatically records results from assignments (when Classroom is migrated to Teams)

      • Class Code Enrollment

        I suggest adding a class code feature to allow students to join a class, rather than the teacher having to enter student emails.

        • Ensure the ClassNotebook toolbar in OneNote works with Teams

          Currently, it is not possible to use the toolbar to distribute pages/ sections, review student work etc, because it says the notebook needs mapping to a Classroom. There isn't an option for Teams on Connections. Also, when not connected, using Manage Notebooks does not give the ability to view/ change settings for any Notebooks that were created using Teams.

          • duplicate a team

            Please add in a feature to allow duplicating an entire team. It would be helpful two have two duplication options:

            1) Duplicate this team & copy it's members to the duplicate
            2) Duplicate this team without any members

            • Students leaving their class

              Please make sure the "Leave this team" option is not available to students in relation to their membership of a class created by SDS.

              • Assignments list

                can we have a list of all the assignments under the assignments tab? the week to view means students have to keep clicking right to see whats been set.

                I don't want any excuses!

                • Incorporate manage notebook settings in Teams (like it was in Classroom)

                  The FAQs in ClassNotebook are confusing and so far I haven't been able to successfully follow them to change settings, such as enabling teacher only section, locking collaboration space, adding sections etc. This was a great feature in Classroom, which needs to also be in Teams.

                  • Allow students and teachers sending links for assignments

                    In the old MS Classroom students and teachers were able to send links such as external links, YouTube links, SWAY links or even FORMS links.
                    I'd appreciate having the same option in the new MS TEAMS assignments

                    • When a student submits a file via assignments, place all files in a class OneDrive folder for that assignment

                      This will make it possible for a teacher to see all files submitted by students in a single folder, and will also make it easier to return to old files in future, rather than having to scroll back through different assignments. Each assignment will have a OneDrive folder, with the name of the assignment and each file will be prefixed with student username.

                      • Student accessibilty

                        If Files is going to replace classroom then the owner of the team needs to be able to decide if a file can be edited or not. Some files i need my students to be able to edit for homework, others i do not want them to change so i should have an option which enables or disables edit function for members when i upload a file.

                        • Having OneNote embedded in Teams.

                          Having OneNote embedded within a team page would be so useful as a teacher. I use this all the time.

                          • Add open in OneNote online option for Class Notebooks like in Classroom

                            When clicking on Class Notebook in MS Classroom, it used to open in OneNote online and thus give full functionality. Currently in Teams it only shows the welcome pages, and you can't get to the content library or collaboration space. The only option given is to open in desktop, but surely there should be an option to open in OneNote online, or even better, to have the OneNote online functionality right inside Teams without having to go to a separate OneNote online tab.

                            • People have no idea what sharepoint is. Stop confusing us with view in sharepoint.

                              once we get to sharepoint it is massively confusing. I have never used a service more confusing than a sharepoint site that no one knows exists except through links to the exact location. You're losing people with this horrible structure.

                              • Show previews of documents

                                When you put a link to a document in the conversations tab, it would be good to be able to see a preview by moving the mouse over the document icon, instead of clicking on it and opening it directly.

                                  • Make the reply area for threads a TEXT box

                                    On a regular basis, my eye is drawn to the text input area at the bottom of the window. Typing there starts a new thread, which is a problem. In order to reply to existing threads, you have to click REPLY then start replying. Maybe taking out that step and having a reply box ready at the bottom of threads would be better?

                                    • Locking the Chat function

                                      Provide an option to lock the chat functionality across all teams. There are scenarios where learners need to work independently and where they may not collaborate e.g. during a practical computer applications exam.
                                      If Microsoft Teams remains as open as it currently is - I'll have to find a way to disable it completely during such times.

                                        It would be very useful for communication with parents to get a link of the dates assignments that they can add in their Phone Calendar (or Outlook calendar,...). Students also love to be able to see that on their phone home screen. No excuses...! ;)

                                        • Connect a Class Notebook to multiple channels

                                          It would be nice to be able to connect a Class Notebook to more channels. Eg. to have a Team for a class and have channels for each subject, each one of these subjects (channels) could then have a Class Notebook connected. This would make it easier for the teacher and students to find their way around. And you do not have to have that many teams. Further more you can use the general channel for assignments cross the different subjects so teachers try not to place mutiple bigger assignments on the same day.
