  1. Rename Parent Guardian Digest to Family Digest

    Can you consider renaming the Parent Guardian Digest to Family Digest? Some adults feel offended by 'Guardian'.

  2. Customize email digest template

    Hi there,

    As you know each week an email digest is sent out to parent/guardians (if it is set up) with assignments that are due, past and present, for their kids. Currently there is no way to view what this email looks like or to customise the email with a logo, text etc.

    Can this feature be looked into so that the school had customize this email digest template or at the very least view a preview of what is sent to parents?

    Regards,
    Darren

  3. digest

    At the moment, my understanding is that the digest email is sent at a fixed time on a Sunday. It isn't clear whether this is Pacific Time or local time. For us (in the UK) Sunday morning PT would be late Sunday afternoon local time. Even Sunday morning feels a bit late - if there are assignments which need to be completed, it would be better for parents to be notified at the start of the weekend rather than near the end.

    Could we please customise when the email is sent?

  4. Scheduled Assignments Included in Weekly Digest

    Allow assignments that are scheduled for the week to be included on Weekly Digest so families are aware, but students can't access the assignment before there is instruction.

  5. View teams email digest send logs for assignments

    Hi there,

    We have teams setup via SDS and have turned on the Parent/Guardian email digest. We have only since discovered that emails have not been going to certain families inadvertantly through a support ticket that we logged with Microsoft for something else.

    My question is, can we have the ability to view send logs for the email digest (with a reason for the failure) so we know who has and who hasn't received the digest. That way we can chase up old emails etc. and make sure that parents are receiving the notifications each week. Currently there…

  6. Only certain assignments with a key word appears for parents and guardians on the digest.

    As a teacher, I use Teams for both classwork and homework assignments but I do not necessarily want parents seeing what I have set for classwork assignments. Is there a way which only the assignments with the key word Homework (or Prep as we call it) will show to parents in the digest?

  7. Allow parents to unsubscribe from parent / guardian digest emails

    As title, some of our parents do not want to receive these emails. It would be useful if they could unsubscribe and then have this reflected on the system. Or if we could at least turn it off on the SDS side for them.

  8. email

    At a predetermined time each day EMAIL A DIGEST of assignments to students. At say 4pm each pupil would receive a digest of
    1. Assignments set that day with links back to the assignments in Teams.
    2. Assignments due to be turned in, arranged by date due in

  9. Teacher feedback to parents

    An extension of Guardian weekly digest - to include the teacher feedback to a pupil in the summary of each assignment.

    For young pupils the process to share feedback is laborious, it would be useful to have this distributed automatically for assignments in the same way that the issue / due dates are summarised in the weekly digest.

  10. Allow teachers to "Turn In" assignments.

    Allow teachers to "Turn In" assignments or override this feature. Ex if they are found to be done in flipgrid (or elsewhere) and the kids just didn't click "Turn In". It continues to show on their digest reports.

  11. No work submitted yet turned in

    It would be helpful to have an option to register no work submitted and for this to appear on the parental weekly digest. Currently students can click turned in without any work. Parents think they’ve done work but they have not submitted anything. We would love the parental weekly digest to indicate whether or not work has actually been submitted

  12. Live Parent Access to Assignment Details

    The parent digest isn't enough for most of our parents, they want to be able to see the data on any day of the week.

    The ability to log in (or have an app) and only see homework activities set every day (the ability, ie a tick box, to identify homework vs classwork activities would be ideal) to keep track of assignments is needed.

    At the moment we have to use another app for this which doubles up on admin and means we are writing in one tool that the work is in Teams.

  13. Parent Guardian Email Only One Week

    Currently the parent/guardian digest only alerts parents a week ahead, that means if they get an assignment that is due on a Monday, they won't know about it until the day before it is due. Can this be increased to be a Monthly summary. i.e. The week previous, upcoming assignments for the next 30 days?
