Contact students that haven't submitted an assignment
I think it's critical to follow-up with students that haven't turned in an assignment. I can see how many assignments have been turned in, but I want to be able to have a list where I can mass email the students that haven't turned it in, or select each student and create a personal email message. There should be accountability on both sides.

This is vital. Any education tool should minimise the time spent on simple admin tasks. Being able to sort the students to show who has not submitted (or viewed) the assignment and then send a message to them all (without having to manually address the message to each of them) is a no-brainer. It is certainly possible in Google Classroom already.

I'd like to be able to easily contact students who haven't yet viewed an upcoming assignment. An easy to send bulk email would be great. And how come I can just click their name in assignments to get their info/send them a message?
If you've already marked the assignment for other students, you can export the assignment marking view to Excel (which contains student emails) and sort the list to only show students with a blank mark or mark of 0. However, it sadly won't allow a mass send-out directly through Chat to students who haven't handed-in an assignment.
