Sometimes I like to have my students turn in their assignment as a group, so I only read and grade one paper from a group of 3 or 4 students. It would be great if Teams Assignments could support that. So that either the students or the teacher (or best them both) can choose who this assignment is for/from.
Hope it makes sense?
YES!! I can only distribute to the whole class individually or to the whole class to collaborate. I would like to be able to create groups (or students be able to) and then distribute (or even send assignments) to the GROUPS. And these groups should be able to change, since there are several group activities and not always the same group. Gets complicated with the current setup.
This would be really valuable.
An advanced feature would be a rubrik for the group as a whole and a seperate rubrik for group members.
I'm also hoping for a group assignment function. Would be great if the students themselves can register who is in the group when they submit their assignment (this would help us in situations where you divide into groups, but maybe one person is ill or for antoher reason not taken part in the groupwork). Then you can write feedback to the whole group and the assignment will appear in the overall assignment overview. Please please please fix this!

Yes! Group submission feature please!

Another vote/plea for group assignment functionality. I teach in a university Professional Writing program, and part of the program profile is collaborative work. After all, as another commenter has observed, in the "real world" of professional writing and content creation, everyone works in groups. Our educational platforms should reflect the learning objectives--we need group assignments.

We have multiple group projects and it would be great to be able to give a grade and comment to the group as well as the ability to make individual comments to someone in the group.
Implementing this would make my life as a teacher so much easier. Please make sure that this is implemented soon as it makes using other apps we are technically not allowed to use in our classrooms obsolete.

This would be great. I put together a bit of a work around by using a link to the Class Notebook Collaboration space, but that isn't as easy to use. I would rather this as an option.

If this is finally implemented, I would ditch most of the other learning platforms. Currently, the lack of group assignments is a major barrier for Teams in higher education.
Synnøve Reppe Thomassen commented
the lack of this feature contributes to a more cumbersome work day
As a student, this seems really fun, but I feel like the group should be able to create video and voice chats if this is implemented. It would get really confusing otherwise.

In business, we are always collaborating, but to think that we are still pushing for individual participation in the classroom is archaic. If we want to ensure our students understand how to collaborate and partner well and prepare them for higher ed as well as the job market, we need to have them working more as teams and less as individuals. Please update the application to make this a feasible option.

Assignments are typically done in small groups in vocational training. This feature would be very valuable for quickly assessing the groups.

use tags to submit group things

I currently give each student group its own 'private channel' within our class 'Team'. It seems the system should be able to allow us to select "channel submission" or something like that, which would require just 1 assignment from someone in the channel (or 'from the channel' collectively) and evaluating it would be reflected on every member of the group's grade
Paul Marijnissen commented
I really need this. When?
Matthias Fleschütz commented
Unsure if you mean what I need ;)
I would love to have this!
We have a role-based access control system.
The structure is quite easy:
User --(memberOf)--> Role Group (Universal Mail Enabled Security Group).
I want to add those groups as a member to teams.
What I want to achieve:
roles have responsibilities and due to those the users should automatically be added (or removed) from respective Teams in MS Teams.

Yes! I really mis this option. In It's Learning it was possible for the students to select other students before they turn it in. Thats what is meant in this suggestion.
Student assigned groups, they call it at its learning.
