  2. Allow for assignments on each channel (not just "general")

    Allow for assignments on each channel (not just "general") this means you could set assignments that relate to different topics for the same class group

  4. Add the Ability for teachers to import information from a previous Team into new Teams created by SDS

    Currently we use SDS to create Teams based on course codes in our SIS. In education, some teachers may receive several Teams (quarters, semesters) throughout the school year even if they have the same students. Re-creating the Team each quarter or semester is not ideal and requires extra time and preparation to complete. Teams currently has the ability to create a Team based off the template of another Team when manually creating Teams. That is not an option for Teams that are created through SDS automatically. It would be ideal if after the Team was created, teachers were allowed to…

  6. Parent view

    Need to put assignments into pupil's Outlook calendar so that they can share a read only link with parents. This would enable parents to see all upcoming assignments for their child, i.e. a parent view of assignments.

    Alternatively, give parents a code linked to their child's account that will allow them to see selective team content including all assignment details. Teachers should be able to select whether parents can see everything, particular channels, or just assignments.

  8. Make a channel and add it to multiple Teams.

    I have each section of my English classes in different teams and everytime that I want to make a channel I need to make the whole thing 3-5 times. It would be nice to assign a channel to multiple teams.

  9. Allow Assignments for more than 200 people

    We want to use a Team for our whole school to submit responses to different optional challenge activities. We have over 1000 students in our middle school, and have created a team with all the students loaded. However, when we try to create Assignments in this team, we see a message that Assignment functionality is not available in Teams with more than 200 members. This means we can't use Teams for this purpose (gathering artifacts of various kinds from students across our school).

  10. Assign to Channel

    It would greatly help if we could use channels to assign assignments. This would make it easier to use a single channel for a whole grade, like 3rd grade. This would also make it easier for high school to use a single team for, say, their math classes.

  11. Revert Assignments Format – show all assignments across class teams

    Keep the original teams assignment format where we would see all the assignments in one place for all classes. With this new format we have to enter into select classes to see assignments, making it very difficult and inconvenient. Please change back to the old format! It helps all of us stay organized by seeing all the assignments in one screen.

  12. Multiple deletes for conversations and replies in a channel.

    Trying to "clean up" a channel so the announcements and assignments don't get lost. Deleting each conversation and each reply is tedious. Would like a select or highlight to delete multiple comments and posts.

  13. Add the Ability to Sort all Lists in Teams

    Currently in Teams, lists of the members appear in several sections. i.e. When managing the Team under members and guests, inside the Grade tab in the General channel, In the Class Notebook, in assignments, in Teams meetings, etc... Please add the ability to sort these lists to make it easier for teachers to navigate the lists which as of currently are displayed with no discernable order. Some are sorted by last name, some by first name, and some with no order at all. I imagine that this would work like any other Microsoft product where I can filter…

  14. Teams Junior - Microsoft Teams is amazing but it is complicated for younger children to use a simplified version

    Teams Junior - Microsoft Teams for EYFS/KS1 would be amazing! with a more user friendly interface for our youngest learners.

  15. Admin/Owner ability to delete messages in a channel.

    As a team administrator it is vital that the assigned owners of teams channels have the ability to delete any message in a team channel. This is a feature that will cause my entire company to stop using Teams if not addressed.

  16. Alphabetical order of participants in Manage Team

    Please enable alphabetical ordering (by surnames) of Team members (in "Manage team" option), or instruct me if that possibility already exists. It should be default option to get participants (members) in alphabetical order.

  17. Allow assignments to be assigned to locked channels

    Create assignments for locked channels. We currently have one Team for all of the classes within a subject (eg 10 x year 8 science classes). This allows us to collaborate effectively as a teaching team, as well as communicate information to all of the students in that subject. It would be great if we could assign tasks based on the channel that the student is in (not just to the general channel).

  18. Post Assignments in Specific Channel of a Team

    When posting assignments in Teams, users should be allowed to designate where those assignments are posted. Right now, all assignments post to general instead of allowing the user to choose which channel it will be displayed in. This feature would allow the user more control of where assignments are posted and seen.

  20. It would be helpful to be able to have different assignments for each channel within a class.

    I have differentiated groups within my classes. I would like to set up a channel for each of those groups and then assign different work to each channel. That way, only students in each channel can see and complete that assignment.
