  1. Attach the same document to multiple assignments without making multiple copies of the document.

    I want to have students edit the same document on multiple days with multiple assignments.

    Example:
    Assignment 1: Add the word "energy" to your glossary
    Assignment 2: Add the word "freezing point" to your glossary

    As it is, if I made these two assignments, it would make two separate copies of the glossary. Instead, I want to be able to attach an assignment that has already been distributed to students.

  3. Improve Rubrics functionality and ability to embed videos in assignments

    Rubrics need to have all the following features to be appropriate for school use.
    1 - I should be able to edit a rubric I made instead of having to download this, edit it and then after delting the original re-uploading it (very time consuming)
    2 - I need the abiltiy to have anywhere up to 10 different rubrics on one assignment (not criteria in the rubric)
    3 - Points allocated need to be made much more effective as different courses use different set ups and I sometimes require decimal to show mid progression (e.g. grade 3.5 when a student…

  4. Auto-Save Assignment While Editing

    When I am editing a posted assignment, then decide to answer a student in the chat, all my editing becomes automatically discarded because I didn't hit the "Update" button.

    I request an option to auto-save an assignment as it is being edited and not after clicking the button "Update".

  6. checklist in assignments and save work in progress

    When assignments have several "resources" or "student work" components, students may need to work on the assignment over several sessions. Having a checklist (such as is Planner) for each component could help students keep track of their progress.
    This feature would also be great for student choice if a teacher wanted to include several "student work" files, and allow students to choose a certain number to complete.

  9. Download all students' assignments in a Zip file

    It would be great if teachers could download all students' submitted papers in each assignment in a zip file. I don't understand why MS Teams doesn't have this basic feature, which Google Classroom, Moodle, and other LMSs have. That would make MS Teams easily become the potential No.1 LMS.

  13. A universal assignment group

    I would like there to be a group where you could have all your assignments right next to each other and maybe a subtitle underneath the assignment to show what team that came from

  15. This is for Assignments in Teams. Please could you make it easier for students to upload videos. Sometimes they can only use Chats. Please c


    1. Assignments - please make it easier for students to upload videos of presentations. It often doesn't work and they have to use Chats or whatsapp.


    2. Assignments - please introduce a feature whereby we can attach a scanned, marked rubric or test that we have marked offline or by hand, so that when we return the student's mark or grade, we can attach the rubric or marked test to the mark.

  16. Discussion board

    So in working with and loving Google classroom for years, and now working with teams, there are a few things you can tweak to make this more user friendly. First in general, you have unnecessary steps for teachers.
    You need to create a way for teachers to ask students questions without having students be able to read others responses before they write their own. This way students have a way to come up with their own thinking. In that, you need to then have settings that allow students to respond to other students posts, only after having created their own…

  17. copy

    It would be nice if we could eliminate the ability of students to copy and paste within a Microsoft Form quiz to prevent cheating. We are trying to eliminate paper as much as we can this school year because of Covid-19. I plan on using Microsoft Forms to quiz students. I give daily short answer quizzes over terms. We have a program that could block students from all other programs on their computer to prevent cheating, but all a student has to do is copy all the terms before they are blocked, and then all they have to do is…
