Add ability for Parents/Gaurdians to view assignments, etc.
Can we get a parents' app to see when their child's teacher creates an assignment next please?
Hi everyone – we are getting ready to release the weekly parent/guardian Assignments email summary.
If you’re interested in using this feature we recommend getting started today by setting up the Parent and Guardian Sync using Microsoft School Data Sync.
More information about how to set this up is here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/schooldatasync/parent-contact-sync
We will be sure to update you once we release this functionality inside Teams.
Your "csv" method is too convoluted and difficult to complete. When will this feature be live? We really need this for our parents. And soon.

Any way it can be done without using School Data Sync???
School Data Sync isn't available to Vic Department Schools here in Australia. I understand this is a common issue with schools that are among mega large tenants

Much looked forward feature! Appreciate the efforts that went into this Justin & the team👍🏽
Is this going to reach 52 weeks of waiting? Place your bets!
You said ETA in the next couple of weeks... That was 8 months ago lol

No new announcements on this feature.
Has this new feature been abandoned?
I do remember the September announcement about a guardian mail digest and the announcement of Parent Contact Sync in SDS.
Any update on this? You said in September we'd have a update in a couple of weeks... it's now April... 2019.

It would be really great to have a "Parent" role, as we have Member, owner and Guest. For us, Parent should be more than guest and less than Member.
It would be great if parents would have contribute to the chat, see some shared documents and participate, alse share them, be able to watch streem chanels (like videos about school events etc). As we see parent are also citizens of the school, but with other interests. This feature would be crutial to migrate school communities from facebook and youtube
waiting... Update please

Is there any news on this? We are really keen on getting this up and running.
Is this really now available?
Juan Pablo Gil Galindo commented
It is Now available, but Isuggest that you should create a Parent role on the Teams admin.
We're in 2019, any update?
Where are we on this?
Couple of weeks gone...any news?
We were hoping this feature would be available before the end of the semester. Any additional updates?

I am waiting for updates. I told my fellow teachers than within a few weeks parents would receive mails on teams assignments, and they are eagerly asking me about this update.
Is there an update on this? Many thanks.
