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?
Group Assignments is now available See the updated support article for how to use this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/create-group-assignments-or-assign-to-individual-students-37809738-57e6-4176-86c5-751adfe0e03a

I really need this. When?

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.
Almost all assignments for our students are completed as group projects. I can't fully switch to using Teams until this is functional.
In the previous communication and collaboration platform my school used, it was possible to hand in an assignment as a group. Before handing in, the student could add all group members to the hand-in. This way it was easier for the teacher to see which students had handed in, and all group members could see the turned-in file. It would be great to have such a feature in Teams!

Why can't students see which other students share a small group assignment? To have to verbally announce which students are in which groups is a hassle. Students should be able to see which other students have that assignments, then get into small groups themselves. :( It's a simple, small thing that would save teachers some work.

We use blackboard to accomplish this so teams is not needed.

This is of critical importance to my use of assignments in Teams. In several of my subjects, almost all written assignments are solved and assessed in groups. It is a must-have feature for students to be able to hand in one report on behalf of a group of students.
This topic is about group assignements in Teams for Edu, which are very common in Europe. A group of students works on an assignment and one students turns in the assignment on behalf of the whole group. The lecturer can give feedback on the assignment and can grade it. His/her feedback and grade are distibuted to the students of that group (and in the grade center to all concerned students).
This is functionality that is really needed in Europe!

Just a thought but many universities use Office 365 so faculty and students have OneDrive which can be configured in a variety of ways as a controlled group repository; GitHub comes to mind also. Both from Microsoft. Lots of other free cloud-based storage solutions out there as well. I feel I may be missing a key aspect though so please let me know about constraints I may be missing. Cheers!!

In our uni we have a lot of projects and group assignments. Mostly groups are fixed like 4 students together.
This is an excellent practice. We at our university also encourage group assignments.
