  1. Microsoft Teams- Straight to Assignments

    Our school is utilizing Teams. We would like for the Home Screen within Teams to be Assignments rather than Conversations. We also would like for the Calendar to show the whole month (not just a week). Unless students are actively looking for the assignments, they won't see something due the next week.

    • Assignment (drafts)

      We would very much like for the assignment to be redraftable. Meaning that the students post their work for grading and if I'm not happy with their work I would like there to be a button which makes it possible for them to take back the document with my comments and post something better. (Redo button perhaps).

      As of know it is not possible for students to contribute again after I have posted the grading in assignment.

        • Classroom intergration

          Microsoft Classroom assignments tab should be added to teams, because Teams is a better fit for classess than Classroom conversations.

          • 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.

            • View grades at a glance

              From the students view, when a task has been reviewed it would be useful see the grades in the assignment as suggested in the attached file. This way students can view their grades without opening the assignment (view grades at a glance)

                • 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.

                  • Sub channels

                    much like how users can create sub pages in OneNote, I'd like the ability to create sub channels in a Team. It's helpful to use indenting on the channels to organize information .

                    • 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.

                      • 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 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…

                            • Assigned Channels

                              I would like a way to set a group of kids to a new channel within a group. Only kids that are assigned to that channel may view, post, or respond to anything posted within that channel.

                                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.

                                  • Make it possible to create private tabs or tabs that can be locked with a password

                                    As a teacher I am the owner of a team with my students. I would like to have the option to create private tabs (or password protected tabs). Comparable to OneNote where you can create sections that are password protected. Maybe its even possible to create a Teacher only channel, comparable to the Teacher Only section in Onenote.

                                        Access to rubrics outside of creating a new assignment. As I'm grading work, I notice that I want to make changes to the rubric for the next time I use it, but I can't edit a version to be used later unless I create a new assignment. Rubrics need to be accessible to teachers to edit at any time, not just when creating an assignment. I also agree that they should be editable in case of mistakes--even after students have submitted their work.

                                        • 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!
