  1. Ability to remove the assignment tab

    We would like to remove the Assignments Tab from Microsoft Teams so that our more gung ho users do not try and utilize this portion of the tool until it can be properly supported through IT and the departments that would be training end users. If the end user does not see it, they will not know it is even an option so there will be no need to field calls or questions.

    If you’re not planning on using the class functionality in Teams, O365 IT Admins can remove the Assignments app in the Teams Admin Center under Teams apps > ‘Permission policies’.

    You can set a user policy (remove it for a set of users) or a global one that removes the Assignments app for everyone in your tenant.

    Before you do this, make sure to double check if any faculty are using Assignments. We’ve seen Assignments be used in all sorts of ways successfully, even without students. You can always add back Assignments by removing the policy.

  2. Assignment Feedback

    It would be great if teachers could offer feedback to assignments without having to enter a grade. The assignments is locked from being able to resubmit. If students can get the feedback, make corrections, and then resubmit the assignment teachers would be able to use it better.

    You can add feedback to assignments at any time. Students can unsubmit, work on the assignment some more, and turn in their work again as long as the Assignment’s ‘Close date’ has not passed.

  3. Manage Assignments - allow edit/delete

    To be able to delete assignments, turn back with feedback to students an allow them to review and turn in again.

    When you assign points to student's assignment, be able to modify and turn back the assignment to the student.

  4. Add a member to an already set assignment

    To use this as a school it really needs to have an option to add members to assignments after the assignment has been set. Currently if I have a new student added to the class then I have to delete the assignment and then send it out again.

  5. Share assignment with multiple teams??

    It would be awesome to be able to share the same assignment with multiple teams. As it is, I have to copy/paste my assignment multiple times - sometimes as many as twenty!

  6. Assignments - Archiving for Reuse

    Make assignments archivable, so that I can create a new assignment from an assignment I had used the previous year.
