  1. Would like a way to filter/organize by file type - specifically video

    After creating multiple videos for the class, students have trouble referring back to a particular video out of perhaps dozens. And there doesn't seem to be a way to, for example, just show the meeting videos, so they could browse from a short list. Instead, they have to wander through the channel where the meeting is and try to find that needle in the channel haystack. This same idea could be expanded to include searching/organizing by date, file type, theme, etc

  5. Sorting Assignments - More options needed

    I would like to be able to have assignments appear in an order of my choosing. Being able to group them under a unit or topic would also be important.

  6. Files across channels that automatically edit in both locations.

    Sometimes it makes sense for a file to be in multiple channels. It would be nice for those files to be linked so that when once is edited, the other automatically receives the same edits.

  8. Could closing a file not throw you back into the beginning of the channels files structure.

    In our team's Team we have folder/file structure. But when you open a file nested in some amount of folders and close it then Teams throws you back into the channel's file landing page. This is super annoying. Could it not?

  10. after opening a file, the file tab closes.

    whenever a file, for example, a PowerPoint presentation is opened and then closed, the files tab also closes and we have to go back to it, search for the folder and open it again.

  11. See who has checked out file

    When you check out a file, nobody else can see who checked it out so if you need to make an edit, it is impossible to ask the person to check the file back in.

  12. Assignment Sorting

    I agree with the whole posting assignments under the assignments tabs, but it should separate assignments by the section it’s under. For example, I get the same assignments for every chapter. It’s one chapter per week and every chapter comes with a review, medlist, math problems, and other assignments. I like seeing my assignments and looking them over before I actually do them to see what I actually know I can answer without looking into the book. When I do what I normally do, the BOLD, unread posts become ‘unbold’, read posts. Now I waste time trying to find assignments…

  13. Having a stored files section for teachers

    Is it possible to have a stored files section so folders and files are not achieved when the class is at the end of the year, and students do not have access to see them?

  14. File additions across multiple teams.

    Could you please make it possible to add a file or folder to multiple teams at one time rather than adding them separately to each team. I teach 5 AP sections and they all work simultaneously. It takes time to add the same files to each class separately.

  15. Rubric Folder

    I would really like the ability to access/edit/duplicate rubrics outside of an assignment. A rubrics folder that I can use to access/edit/duplicate/reuse rubrics would be excellent. It is extremely cumbersome to only be able to edit the rubric in the assignment. It also means that I can't prepare the rubric until I'm nearly ready to post the assignment, and it's difficult to use that rubric or a similar one again weeks or months later.

  17. Be able to close documents when looking at an assignment

    If I open a document in an assignment that has been posted in one of my teams occasionally it won't close when I press the close button. It will minimise slightly but not close so I have to click on one of the tabs at the top like posts or files to get out of it. However, this doesn't happen all the time so I don't know if there is something that I am doing which is causing it.
