Both students and teachers to archive assignments but can also see the archived assignments from a list and should a teacher want to reuse it, can still do so.
In addition, assignments from Archived Teams should no longer be visible in the 'Assigned' assignments list under the 'Assignments' app in the left menu. The course is over...the assignment is no longer active and students can't even add work to it if they want!

Absolutely MUST have the ability to move old, outdated, done, previous marking period things to an out of the way archived location. Honestly Microsoft, you are doing the worst job as far as education goes. Clearly you need to do a better job getting actual teachers in on the designing. Dear God we better never 'reimagine education' with Bill or Microsoft. Get it together.
We need this function!!!

When a student submits an assignment, it goes away, but unless the teacher deletes an assignment, it's there forever. If I want to be able to access a student's paper later, there's no way for me to do that once the assignment is deleted, but in the meantime, there's 30 assignments crowding up my assignments folder. It's obnoxious.

Please add in way to archive previous terms assignments
I agree with all the previous comments. Being able to archive old assignments, especially ones from a previous quarter, would clean up the assignment tab and make things clearer for students and teachers. Right now there is a lot to sort through.
Also, being able to attach more than 5 resources. I've had to make a part 1/2 to be able to post. i would like to just post for the week with all of the resources underneath the week's assignment.
It is very difficult for all to keep track of what is happening in the assignments...I am referring to Teachers, students, parents, and Admin. Having the option to archive these assignments would be very beneficial for all! :)
I need to be able to archive assignments or unassign them so they don't disappear, but they are no longer in the students' view. Lots of unfinished optional assignments clogging up my page. I am sure it is very confusing to my students and parents.....

Archiving assignments would be a great option
I would love to be able to archive assignments after a given duration. Archiving would be beneficial at the completion of a unit or an end of a quarter or semester. Being able to clean up the assignment folder within Teams will help to keep students organized and focused on current tasks.
