    • Screen Size for Assignments

      For both students and teachers, the screen size for the assignment is so small. When a student opens an assignment, it would be better for it to become a full screen tab. When a teacher is checking, it would be much better for it to be a full screen tab rather than always having to click on the assignment again to grade.

      • Edit Rubric

        I created a rubric for an assignment...forgot to put point values with it. Now I can't add it in after all students have uploaded their documents. I need to be able to edit the rubric.

        • Add multiple OneNote pages as a resource to assignment

          Currently, you can only specify one OneNote page for an assignment. I often have multiple pages that students would need as part of a single assignment.

            • I really need a class calendar! This way my whole class would be able to quickly see what is coming up for the month or view important dates

              If my class could see one calendar that I control, it would help the students and the parents stay on track.

                  I want to try to provide clarity on the current functionality because we find that sometimes people are unaware of the settings available to tenant & team admins. There are three different types of edit/delete settings, all of which are switched on/off at the tenant or team level.
                  1) Allow users to edit their own messages
                  2) Allow users to delete their own messages
                  3) Allow owners to delete all messages

                  Tenant level settings:
                  Tenant admins can update capabilities from the “Messaging” section in the Admin center.
                  By default, allow users to edit/delete their own messages is ON at the tenant level (and therefore the team level).
                  By default, allow owners to delete all messages is OFF by default in all tenants, except in EDU where it is ON by default.

                  Team level settings:
                  If edit and delete settings are enabled by the Tenant admin, team owners can also control…

                • 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.

                  • Custom font style and color for team chat users

                    It would be great to be able to customize the font style and color when using the persistent team chat. This would enable you to further distinguish between members chatting.

                    • Option for an A-E marking guide

                      Our schooling system grades with an A-E system, I have been using either a 15-1 or 5-1 scale as a work around but would make grading and rubrics so much easier.

                      • Export of Rubric

                        Hello!

                        I would like to be able to export the rubric and have it look just as it does in the assignments page of Teams when I click on the rubric. It exports to Excel and requires a lot of adjusting.

                        Thanks!

                        • self review rubric

                          It would be great to add an option to the rubric interface that includes a replicate for students to self review. It would be on the same rubric as the teacher uses - just for students to give their own perspective.

                              In the meetings tab, the calendar shows the day, or a future day only. It would be nice to be able to chose a view that showed the full month for planning ahead.

                                  Enable deleting chats that are not needed any longer. It would also be great if the teacher could remove comments or posts from a channel that are irrelevant, nasty or not needed.

                                      Teachers need an area to give feedback or comments on assignments before grades are posted. Ex: Absent - you need to finish and turn in by a certain date.

                                      • Assigment form - text editing tools

                                        When creating an assignment, you currently can only add basic text in the description field. You can't edit text with any tools (bold, italics, etc) and you can't insert a link. Please add this feature to description field.
