Assign a assignment to group of students with a specific tag
When you have a large group of students in a team, teachers might want students to be divided into smaller groups by using different tags. Then it would be very helpful if it was possible to assign an assignment to these groups of students using a specific tag.

This should be combined with the suggestion "Use a group tag to assign an assignment" which is essentially this same as this one. The referred to suggestion was created 4 days before this one and has more votes.

Big fat vote from me!! This would be very useful!
If this feature is added, we need to be able to choose if assignment templates are collaborative or individual.
The current functionality of assigning to 'whole group' or 'individual students' is insufficient. Teachers need the capacity to differentiate assignments to subgroups, remove 'whole group' work from an individual's assignment list, and modify assignments for individual students.
This is much needed as a special educator. Please consider implementing this ASAP!

In order to innovate with the structure of Teams and create inclusive classrooms, this is a MUST!
This would be a very helpful feature added for those of us teaching Online this Fall. Thanks!
Moving forward with blended learning this feature will be of huge benefit as not all learners will be in class to complete activities and assignments. This feature will enable more effective larger subject teams to be broken down into classes without individual classes needing to be set up and managed. Currently, I can hold break out video chats using the tags feature, assigned to groups and send them specifically targeted posts, so please add this feature to Assignments within Teams.
