Revert Assignments Format – show all assignments across class teams
Keep the original teams assignment format where we would see all the assignments in one place for all classes. With this new format we have to enter into select classes to see assignments, making it very difficult and inconvenient. Please change back to the old format! It helps all of us stay organized by seeing all the assignments in one screen.
Hello Teams for EDU community – we’re working hard to deliver an experience for educators and students that is productive and delightful. We will soon update the Assignment app based on the feedback we’ve received here on UserVoice. Please do keep the feedback coming.
Please change it soon. Thanks!!

I came back after the summer fully expecting this to be back. I was under the impression that it was a temporary measure as a result of excess load on the system due to the increase it users during covid19 lockdown.
That was 6 MONTHS ago. I had reassured staff that it would be back soon. Now I look like a muppet!
Any ideas what this is coming...?

This new format is becoming a big issue for students. It means the tech now does not work for them (the whole purpose of tech and TEAMS) but creates issues for them.
The old system worked well and the students liked it. A change back to the previous format ASAP would be most welcomed by all students, parents and teachers alike.

Could we please have an update on this? It's driving my students crazy that they no longer have an overview of all their assigments across Teams.
TBH as a web full-stack developer, I have freaking no idea why is this taking Microsoft so long to implement. If this is something MS is reluctant to do, then I question even more the reason and logic behind it.
We would love to have an update on this topic. We need to have the "old" assignments format.

Can you provide any update when this will be coming as the last update was in July.
change it back already the school year has started and its so hard seeing what assignments you have as u have to search!!!!!!! I AM TIRED!!! FIX IT ALREADY!!! I HATE THE NEW THING IM A STUDENT AND IVE ALREADY MISSED HOMEWORKS BECAUSE OF THIS!!!
Is there an update on this? The school year has started! We are not talking about an inessential feature that will make it nicer to work with Teams. The fact that you have to search for assignments by going through all courses costs kids grades. In a pen-and-paper world, they go home having written their homework into their little school calender - this means they can quickly see what is due next. This means that Teams is providing worse experience than they had before. And the most ridiculous thing is that this feature used to be there!

I am an educator, and fully endorse the view that Assignments needs to enable students to see all tasks in one view, ideally sorted chronologically or by due date, rather than sorted by Team.
This would be sooo useful

My daughter has 10 classes. It is not at all practical to click into each class to check for assignments. As well as the option to show assignments per individual classes, it is essential to have the option to see all assignments across all classes, to sort by both due date and set date, and to filter to show either all assignments or particularly important, all unhanded-in assignments. That would be a great productivity enhancement.
Any news on when the new App showing all assignments across classes will be ready?
We’ve been waiting for this function back about half a year. And it’s only 2 days left before the new school year starts!!!
We’re expecting very much to have this function back. Please be hurry, it’s gonna be a big help for little children to organise their homework by themselves.

You can also remove the next button.
When user clicks on class there is no need to click next, it should automatically open the assignment section.
This is a deal breaker. I would love to roll Teams out, instead of using Firefly, particularly for homework/assignments, but as it currently stands, students are unable to see what they have due unless they go into the individual Team... I can't understand why a "view all assignment" option isn't available.
Is it going to be implemented before the schools are starting in August?
In our school, our students only complain about Teams because of the difficulty to find their assignments. We hear many coments suggesting to include the Assignments' activities into search.

I have another request regarding assignments. (I'll make a separate Uservoice for it too)
I'd love for there to be an extra feature added to Assignments that by default is turned on for all tasks that have a Release Date set.
The feature I'd like to see would be check box that would appear in the advance release and closing date box.
It would be a check box called something like "Allow Upcoming Preview"
What it would do is show the student the name of the task and the date in which it will open. But it won't show them the task description.
This will mean that students at the begging of term will be able to see a list of the upcoming assessments, but they won't be able to start them. Which is really useful for Tests etc.
It also means that the weekly parent email summary will be able to include the the assignments that are Upcoming this week.
It would be super useful for parents and also for students if the weekly summary was also sent to them too
