    As of right now, if you forget to create a rubric for an assignment, you can't go back and update the assignment to include a rubric.

    • Additional user type in team for a class

      I have created a team for a class that I am teaching. It will be very useful to enrol some users as TAs (teaching assistants). I would like to give these users privileges to grade and edit the assignment scores but will prefer that privileges for creating or deleting an assignment or editing the team settings to be with the owner. Several instructors in my university also face the same situation.

      • Rubrics

        Need to be able to delete .a rubric from the list. If I make a mistake on a rubric I want to be able to delete it so I don't mistakenly use it again OR I need the ability to edit the version that shows up in the rubric list when assigning a rubric.

        • Option for an A-E marking guide

          Our schooling system grades with an A-E system, I have been using either a 15-1 or 5-1 scale as a work around but would make grading and rubrics so much easier.

          • Replicate Shift

            Ability to take a weekly schedule and replicate it over the rest of a month qtr or year. With a single command thus not having to copy and paste that shift to week. Also the ability to remove that shift in mass as well.

            • When starting a new chat, it should be possible to select groups of students and teachers.

              Now we must choose students one and one. We have many groups of students in Office365 that should be available in the chat function. When we add new members to a Team we can use these groups.

              • Attach file to feedback

                I often provide video feedback to my students using a screenrecording app. It would be good if I could attach this file to the feedback, rather than emailing it separately.

                • The term 'Assignments' is misleading.

                  This term does not capture contemporary Assessment for Learning techniques in which we elicit evidence of learning. Can we please replace with a more relevant and accurate term e.g. 'Learning Activity'

                      I created a rubric for an assignment...forgot to put point values with it. Now I can't add it in after all students have uploaded their documents. I need to be able to edit the rubric.

                        • 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).

                          • Integrate Assignments with calendar

                            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...! ;)

                            When an assignment is created in a class, it only shows up in the assignment tab within that class. In Classroom when an assignment was created it also showed in the students’ calendars. This would be a great addition especially if students are in multiple classes they’ll be able to see all their assignments in…

                              It is not possible to create a saved Web Link in the Teams view of files but it is possible to create a web Link in the Sharepoint view of Teams Files. When the link is clicked on in Sharepoint, the link works. In the Teams view a link just tries to download a file.

                              Could web Links be made to work the same in the Teams view of Files as in the Sharepoint view of the same files.

                              • Rubrics

                                Access to rubrics outside of creating a new assignment. As I'm grading work, I notice that I want to make changes to the rubric for the next time I use it, but I can't edit a version to be used later unless I create a new assignment. Rubrics need to be accessible to teachers to edit at any time, not just when creating an assignment. I also agree that they should be editable in case of mistakes--even after students have submitted their work.

                                • Join a new public team (that you do not belong to) via a web link - using the Get Link to Team functionality

                                  There is no reason why the "Get link to a team" cannot also work like the "Get a code" functionality -- there should be an easy click way to join a public team, without having to go to teams and enter in a code, or fruitlessly searching for the exact spelling of a public team.

                                  Being able to use the get link functionality for this would be self-explanatory, and would enable much more seamless joining of public teams.

                                  • rename class notebook in teams

                                    Rename a class notebook in Teams
                                    I would like to be able to rename a class notebook created by Teams.

                                    This is because they all begin with "Notebook for..." ("Notatblokk for..." in my language region). This makes it very hard to distinguish a list of notebooks in the OneNote app.

                                    A notebook can be renamed in Sharepoint, but this breaks the link between Teams and the notebook.

                                    • Read-only option

                                      In teams files, can we please have an easy way to mark files uploaded as 'read-only'. I don't want my students to be able to edit the files I am sharing with them, but I also don't want to have to create a pdf of every single document I upload. Also, I have students who open a file and then I can't edit it, so if the file is in read-only, students can't open it and lock it from editing from me.

                                      • Export of Rubric

                                        Hello!

                                        I would like to be able to export the rubric and have it look just as it does in the assignments page of Teams when I click on the rubric. It exports to Excel and requires a lot of adjusting.

                                        Thanks!

                                          It would be great to add an option to the rubric interface that includes a replicate for students to self review. It would be on the same rubric as the teacher uses - just for students to give their own perspective.
