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?
We’re excited to announce that the Weekly guardian email digest is now available!
With this feature enabled, Teams will automatically send parents/guardians a weekly email summary of past and upcoming assignments.
How to get started:
1. Setup Parent and Guardian Sync on Microsoft School Data Sync (SDS) and bulk add all your guardian emails: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/schooldatasync/parent-contact-sync
2. Then O365 Admins can enable the ‘Weekly guardian email digest’ setting inside the new Assignments settings in the Teams Admin Center. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/expand-teams-across-your-org/assignments-in-teams
We can’t wait to hear your feedback.

I hope an update is provided soon. I work for a very larger school system and it is really hard to get teachers to buy in when they don't have a way to connect parents.
Justin, can you please provide an update on the status of releasing this feature?
Ole Kristensen commented
Any updates now school has begun?
Release date? New features?
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?
