    I would love for the assignment tab to show up in each channel created. I create a new channel to match each unit of study. I use each channel as a module.

  2. Popout Chat

    Skype for Business 2016 had the ability for separate chats to be in separate windows. It would be cool if this was possible for chats within teams.

  4. Share a file across multiple team

    I have created several teams for my school (Yr 7 Maths, Yr 8 Maths, Yr 9 Maths) and while most of the time each team would be working specifically within that team, sometimes there may be a department file that we need to work on. Can I share the file between teams, and have the file constantly update and sync across all teams?

  5. updating rubrics on assigments

    As of right now, if you forget to create a rubric for an assignment, you can't go back and update the assignment to include a rubric.

  6. Upload Files Larger Than 50Mb

    Our Music Tech class wants to use Assignments but we can't upload our videos as they all much larger than 50Mb. Most of our videos are at least 500Mb. Would it be possible to increase the maximum file size? Thanks :)

    Thanks for the feedback and support on this one. We definitely understand the need. The team is currently reviewing how we can increase the file upload size here.

    As a workaround in the meantime, perhaps you can have students submit a link to the file stored on their personal OneDrive.

  8. Notification Enhancements

    We have moved back to using Skype as the notification for Chat is not customizable. Staff that use Team for chatting, miss incoming messages, compared to Skype. I want to push the use of Team, but this factor renders the app useless.

  9. It would be awesome if we could have a Microsoft Forms tab for Microsoft Team channels

    Microsoft Forms for Microsoft Team channels would be incredibly handy!

  10. Integrate OneNote into Teams

    Right now, when you "integrate" OneNote as a Tab in a channel it is just a web browser that opens a notebook in OneNote Online. Could you really integrate OneNote into Teams like you did with Planner?

  11. 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.

  12. "Detect Fragments and Run-On Sentences" feature in Word 2016

    Previous versions of Word detected fragments and run-on sentences, but Word 2016 does not. This is especially problematic because these are two of the most common writing errors students make; many students relied on this feature to improve their writing
    Please vote to have this feature added to Word 2016.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Create quick class polls in MS Teams

    In the conversations area we need the ability to add a quick question for formative assessment purposes. The different types needed would be: multiple choice, text and ticktboox. The instant feedback to the teacher can be used to judge how the class, or individuals, are progressing with the lesson.

  18. assignment tab

    On the top tabs, I'd like the ability to change the order of the 4 tabs: conversations, files, class notebook, and assignments. I'd like students to see "Assignments" first instead of seeing all the mess of "Conversations" when they first click on our team.

  19. Show the time stamp when assignments are turned in even after "returning" the assignment.

    It appears Teams was just updated to allow the teacher to "return" an assignment to a student either before or after grading. This is a great, and much needed feature. However, the timestamp showing when an assignment was originally turned in now disappears. So, if I have a student turn an assignment in late and then I return the assignment back to the student with their grade, I can no longer see the original turn in time or date. The reason this is a problem is because I have often used that timestamp to clear up disputes with students who…

  20. Alert students of feedback when assignment is graded.

    Students need an alert telling them, or a direct link to graded assignments so they are prompted to read feedback given by a teacher. As it stands. Teachers can put feedback but students have no prompt to read that information or even know that an assignment has been graded.
