Improve teacher feedback on assignments: zoom, rotate, write on image/pdf, upload file...
It would be very useful, for a teacher, to have the following features when working with assignments - in addition to the already present "feedback" option:
- zoom and rotate also images, not only .pdf;
- write or draw (make annotations) on images and .pdf files;
- upload a file (image, pdf, office doc,...) together with the feedback - for instance, I could write something in the feedback and then upload a file with the complete solution of a given excercise.
These features could save a teacher a lot of time and, at the same time, make the feedbacks much more effective for students.

Verbal feedback and being able to upload a file as part of the teacher feedback would be amazing functionality for Teams Assignments.

Audio and video comments by teachers would be very useful ways to provide feedback to young students.
This would be so helpful!

I work around the limitation by adding a Feedback document when I set the assignment, which I set to "Students edit their own copy". This I can then later edit individually to provide personal feedback. You can even do this after the learners have submitted. Just edit the Assignment and add the Word Feedback document. Importantly - you need to set it as "Students can edit their own copy". It will get pushed to the Assignment. However, now and then I would like to add more feedback, such as a personal video. Alas! That is not possible!
Do you read it? Act please!

I agree. When assignments or documents upload come in sideways there is no way to rotated them. It makes it tricky to grade.

I teach in an Elementary School. Our ideology is that students first develop their handwriting before we jump into typing. In these COVID days we are asking our students to send photos or their writing, but giving feedback becomes an exhausting task. Making annotations in pictures would make our life much easier.

Rotating and zooming imagines would be brilliant. Even better if we could add notes!
Another feature would be great to allow pupils to reply in the same section to our "feedback"
Also be able to zoom in on photos on Teams as well would be useful
I agree, also the character limit for the feedback box is not enough. I thought I could copy and past in example answers after giving my feedback, but instead I bad to give brief feedback on teams and ask them to check their email where I had emailed them example answers.
Teams is not very user friendly when assessing work submitted via photos or pdf. Not all students are able to type up all work!

Being able to rotate submitted assignments. If it submitted as a picture that is taken on the side, being able to rotate would be great.

As a math teacher, my students are working in a notebook because there is not a way to have them complete an assignment in word, so grading papers and hoping to have a clear picture is very difficult.
Yes! This is infuriating for teachers.
Teams either needs to give a 'rotate' button or at the very least Teams needs to respect the 'rotation' flag included in EXIF data.
Include capability to rotate and zoom images in Microsoft Teams Assignment submissions.
This is currently only possible if you download the image.

I agree! My current work-around of accessing the submitted files directory in the Teams sharepoint site is a bit clunky :) It would be a much more streamlined experience for students and teachers if one could:
> markup a pdf or image assignment submission using a stylus or apple pencil directly in Teams
> upload additional feedback sheets such as annotated criterion sheets or rubrics
> provide feedback to students as an audio recording
At minimum the ability to rotate a photo would be extremely helpful. I have many students who use a phone to take a picture of their work and upload the image to the Teams assignment. They say when they submit it on their teams phone app, the photo is right side up, but when I open it on my end to grade, it is turned 90 degrees. I can download each image and rotate it, but that ends up taking way longer.
