  1. 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…

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  12. Back/forward function for files in order to go between folders w/o going back to beginning each time

    Please create a back/forward button for easy transition/interoperability within the file folders. As of now, if you're accessing a document within a parent file folder (e.g. file b), that's within a file folder (e.g. file a) , and want to go back once step (e.g. to file b), there is currently now way to do this. Rather, it takes you all the way back out to the start (e.g. to file a). It would be really helpful to have the same file folder functions as all of the other Microsoft office products (back/forward level at a time). I hope this…

  15. Put "Manage Access" back into Teams->Files->Ellipsis

    Please put back the "Manage access" option in Teams-->Files-->Ellipsis. The option has changed. Manage access is now only available through SharePoint ONLY. It used to be available through the ellipsis in Teams. Now it's an extra few steps to be able to manage access of files from within a team. Please put them back and make this process simpler.

  16. Notify me when somebody has posted a file in Files

    People usually post documents in Files while thinking that everybody knows about it. There is no notification for that and I firmly believe things need to be changed. This notifications will ease the studying process and there are not going to be other forgotten materials to read.

  18. Customise the tile image in files

    Currently in Files (Tile Mode) the folder image is of a folder. Could we have the ability to change the 'folder' image to a customised image? This would make it similar to the 'Teams' page?
