  1. notify me (the teacher) when a student turns in an assignment

    As a teacher of 7 different classes, I have to go into each assignment individually to see when students turn in assignments. This is very time-consuming! Please allow me to set up a notification when a student turns in an assignment.

    Thanks for all of the feedback on this one. We are reviewing how we can improve notifications around Assignments in Teams. Please keep the feedback coming!

  2. Returned assignments should show up as "Graded" or as "Needs Revised."

    When I return an assignment to a student for any reason, it just says "Returned." There should be an easy way for the student to see if the assignment has been "Graded" or if it "Needs Revised" so that the student knows there is more they need to do.

  3. Turn in assignments on behalf of in Teams for EDU.

    Teachers need a way to turn in an assignment on behalf of students who for some reason aren't able to turn it in themselves, or at least change the status to delivered.

  4. Improve teacher feedback on assignments: zoom, rotate, write on image/pdf, upload file...

    It would be very useful, for a teacher, to have the following features when working with assignments - in addition to the already present "feedback" option:

    1. zoom and rotate also images, not only .pdf;
    2. write or draw (make annotations) on images and .pdf files;
    3. upload a file (image, pdf, office doc,...) together with the feedback - for instance, I could write something in the feedback and then upload a file with the complete solution of a given excercise.

    These features could save a teacher a lot of time and, at the same time, make the feedbacks much more effective for…

  5. Group Assignments

    Sometimes I like to have my students turn in their assignment as a group, so I only read and grade one paper from a group of 3 or 4 students. It would be great if Teams Assignments could support that. So that either the students or the teacher (or best them both) can choose who this assignment is for/from.

    Hope it makes sense?

  6. Inking in Assignments

    Comments alongside an assignment are often inadequate and direct annotation on the document with inking would be preferable. At present it is only possible to ink on an assignment if clicking through several buttons and completing dual authentication to download file to desktop. Inking should be present on screen instantly within Teams with no need to select edit or download to desktop to edit. Inking is available in OneNote it should be available in all online apps!

    Thank you everyone for the additional feedback on this feature request! We’ve read all your comments and are currently investigating what we can do to help.

  9. Incorporate "Take a Test" app into Teams

    Add the functionality of "Take a Test" app into Teams by using Office 365 account. You can use Office 365 login to create a profile on the machine that only allows single application to run. The teacher could then assign a test to a class and would allow for student monitoring by the teacher thru the Office 365 connection.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback on this. As more educators look for ways to create secure assessments (especially remotely) this is one of the options we are investigating.

  10. Download all assignments button

    Almost all schools require the ability to download assignments and upload them to district-systems, print a batch of assignments, provide them to external audits etc.

    The functionality is already there (navigate to the correct document library and then click 'download').

    Simply add the UI option for a teacher to do this without knowledge of SharePoint libraries.

    Surely this wouldn't require too much engineering to make it happen?

  11. Parent view

    Need to put assignments into pupil's Outlook calendar so that they can share a read only link with parents. This would enable parents to see all upcoming assignments for their child, i.e. a parent view of assignments.

    Alternatively, give parents a code linked to their child's account that will allow them to see selective team content including all assignment details. Teachers should be able to select whether parents can see everything, particular channels, or just assignments.

  12. Allow Assignments for more than 200 people

    We want to use a Team for our whole school to submit responses to different optional challenge activities. We have over 1000 students in our middle school, and have created a team with all the students loaded. However, when we try to create Assignments in this team, we see a message that Assignment functionality is not available in Teams with more than 200 members. This means we can't use Teams for this purpose (gathering artifacts of various kinds from students across our school).

  13. Add editable PDF to assignment

    Add the possibility to add a editable PDF as ressource of a assignment AND o be able to edit a PDF file (editable pdf form) Now only MS documents such as Word, Excel etc. are editable by students. Editable PDF forms can't be changed by students. Words

  14. Assignments hand-in no work or blank work

    Teachers are assigning work for students to complete. But students are handing in assignments with no work or blank work.
    Can the Hand-In button be disabled if students have not uploaded anything or added to the resources they have been provided.
    Part of schools working remotely is trying to keep a track of which students are not completing work. Then calling parents to discuss this. Making it so that students can hand in an assignment without having done anything makes checking very difficult.

  15. Late Assignment Submission Notification

    Hello,

    Thanks for allowing resubmission. As a teacher I would like to be notified when a student submits an assignment after a scheduled deadline. This would help with knowing when students resubmit assignments after deadlines and when students have submitted work late.

  17. Live Parent Access to Assignment Details

    The parent digest isn't enough for most of our parents, they want to be able to see the data on any day of the week.

    The ability to log in (or have an app) and only see homework activities set every day (the ability, ie a tick box, to identify homework vs classwork activities would be ideal) to keep track of assignments is needed.

    At the moment we have to use another app for this which doubles up on admin and means we are writing in one tool that the work is in Teams.

  18. Alert students of feedback when assignment is graded.

    Students need an alert telling them, or a direct link to graded assignments so they are prompted to read feedback given by a teacher. As it stands. Teachers can put feedback but students have no prompt to read that information or even know that an assignment has been graded.

  19. Teacher Upload Student's Assignment

    Teachers should be able to upload a student's work that has been submitted via an alternate method (e.g. email or even a scan of a paper copy) to the review section in Teams. This allows for teachers to store all information about an assignment in one place. It will also remove the annoying calculation of those who have and haven't handed the work in, which to an external eye makes it look like students aren't completing work.

  20. Auto-save Quiz, Have Quiz timer and auto submit the form when timer ends

    If we have a timed quiz in Teams, the student has no option of knowing how much time is left. When the deadline passes, the student has no option of submitting the form and looses all points.

    1. There should be a visible timer / clock showing how much time is left before submission

    2. If the student has the form open, at the end of the clock, the form should be auto submitted with the answers that were already given/selected

    3. There should be an auto save option for the form, in case the student needs to reload the page/looses connectivity, so…
