  1. Add or share assignment to multiple classes / teams

    It would be awesome to be able to share the same assignment with multiple teams. As it is, I have to copy/paste my assignment multiple times - sometimes as many as twenty!

  2. Building Assignments in Teams

    I used Classroom last school year and loved building assignments with this tool. There are many features found in Classroom that allowed teachers to build assignments easily and effectively that are not in TEAMS. Teachers need to be able to:


    1. Link Notebook pages to the assignment.

    2. Search for videos and resources to link to assignments from Teams like it was able to do so in Classroom.

    3. Share assignments with other Teams. To have to replicate assignments per Team for the courses taught is not practical.

    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    This is partially done. :)

    Item 1 and 3 exist.
    I will follow up on number 2 and provide a status soon.

  3. View all assignments from across teams

    Currently, in the assignments tab, you must select a class to view assignments. However, if you are in many different teams, you may want to view assignments from all classes in one menu (with no additional clicks needed), so that you don't accidentally miss any.

    Example:
    Currently, in the assignments tab, you click on each class to view assignments

    What I propose:
    Add a slider, named "View all assignments", that when checked, shows all assignments that have not been completed on this one screen.

  4. Assignments: Students should be able to respond to a teacher's feedback.

    Assignments: Students should be able to respond to a teacher's feedback.
    When creating an assignment it should be able to "check/uncheck" student responds to feedback.
    Just like you can check/uncheck "late hand-in".

  5. Month View in Assignment Area

    In addition to the week view, it would be awesome to also have the option to view by month.

  6. Check Spelling in the Feedback Box of an Assignment

    When writing in any of the feedback boxes of an assignment (the "main" feedback box, or any of the rubric feedback boxes) there is no spelling punctuation or grammar checking.

  7. Forms on assignments in teams

    On teams when an assignment is created it would be excellent if we could create a form on it. E.g. A set of maths questions that a pupil can answer and receive feedback and a score as soon as submitted - the form results could then be displayed within the review by owner section.

  8. Recurring/Repeating Assignments

    There are some assignments that happen on a recurring basis, daily/weekly/monthly for example I assign students to watch and respond to CNN10 everyday, writing in a journal everyday, etc.

    It would be great to set up an assignment to post on a regular basis. Instead of having to make it "From existing" everyday.

  9. Return assignments back to students and Feedback showing before assignments graded/reviewed

    In Classroom there was a button when reviewing the students work to return the assignment back to the student if it was not correct. Then the student could resubmit the correct assignment/attachment. Can Teams please have that function? Also, can the feedback that is given on an assignment be visible to the student even if there assignment has not been reviewed/graded yet.

  10. Notifications- Assignments for students and work to review for students

    It would be very helpful if students were notified when they are given an assignment- or at least for there to be a notify students option.
    Also, I need notifications when students turn in work to review in a centralized area. It is quite a hassle to click through each team and hunt for any turned in work. Until submitting assignments is more user-friendly, it is not practical to be used.

  11. Printing student assignments

    With some assignments, teachers would like to print off student work. However, the steps are very cumbersome. For example, with Word documents, the teacher needs to open each document in the Word (Client) and print the document from there. In Microsoft Classroom, there were less steps to print. If there was an option where a teacher could print off an entire class' assignment from within a single screen, that would be very beneficial.

  12. Allow assignments to be handed in using the camera feature

    At the moment, camera scanning only allows users to send documents to channels or to chats. There should also be a feature allowing assignments to be handed in using the camera scanning

  14. Private student-teacher replies on Assignments in Microsoft Teams

    When I give a student feedback on an assignment in Microsoft Teams, I can leave them a private comment. However, the student cannot reply. I would students to have this option both before and after they submit the assignment. That would allow students to ask questions about their work.

  15. Teacher Upload annotated student assignments

    Teachers should be allowed to attach annotated student work which is submitted as a jpeg or pdf. I would like to be able to attach the annotated file to the student during the "Return" or grading process of an assignment.

  16. Allow video to be recorded directly into an assignment.

    Similar to Seesaw, students should be able to respond to an assignment via video, directly into the assignment. This would be without having to use an app or the additional step of including a link or uploading to the assignment.

  17. Allow guest users (students) to access Quiz/Forms Assignments

    I'm an educator.

    After speaking with the Microsoft Support team, I've been told that Teams doesn't support Guest users accessing Forms or Quizzes in the Assignments function on Teams.

    For ease of access and maintaining security, all of our students have been invited to use Teams as guests. They are able to complete assignments with resources attached such as Word, jpg. and PDF, but they are unable to access Quiz Assignments.

    I just don't see why not? Please change this ASAP, it makes the process much faster and more engaging.

  19. Student Comment Section on Assignments

    There should be a box that allows students to give an optional comment when submitting an assignment. This would be make communication with teachers easier when it comes to their understanding of the work set.

    A feature like this would also be useful for returned assignments. When assignments are returned the teachers give feedback, but short of re-submitting the assignment there is no way for the student to easily communicate with the teacher and respond to that feedback. It is very annoying to have to resubmit work to respond to a small comment from the teacher where they perhaps gave…
