  1. Late Assignment Submission Notification

    Hello,

    Thanks for allowing resubmission. As a teacher I would like to be notified when a student submits an assignment after a scheduled deadline. This would help with knowing when students resubmit assignments after deadlines and when students have submitted work late.

  3. 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 .

  4. 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.

  5. Tasks in Teams

    I have a problem with Teams, how it provides feedback of Information; that there will always be a green tick that misleads my students to believe that the task is approved. But its not! Whether I mark the task 100% or 0% correct, it becomes a green check mark as a marker, as it is when its aproved. I want a better feedback for unsuccessful submissions. Is it possible to change this highly misleading feedback?

  6. 20mb Assignment Limit?! - 10gb Limit.

    Why, oh why, is the assignment limit crippled to 20mb? This is such a critical flaw in the assignment workflow for anything other than basic word documents. Even PowerPoints with embedded audio and video exceed 20mb.

    Yes, in the year 2000, 20mb seemed like an acceptable limit, however, in 2017 this is a restrictive and bizarre limit.

    I thought this was built on SharePoint? So a 10gb file limit would make sense. Can we please do something about this sooner rather than later?

  7. Sort Files Alphabetically

    Having the files tab default to sorting alphabetically would make finding files much easier.

  8. 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.

  10. Make Teams searchable within specific date ranges

    Currently in teams when you search by date you have to use a predefined date range (today, yesterday, last week etc). You cannot search to find conversations which happened on a specific date.

    The only way to do this is currently is to keep scrolling through your chat, which is very slow, until you reach the date range you want. As we move more of our daily conversations into Teams, this becomes more and more of an issue.

    Please, please provide us a custom date field so we can navigate seemlessly to the desired historical chat.

  11. Be better than Google Classroom by...

    - Allowing teacher to ink while grading assignments.
    - Connecting Teams to LMS so assignments and grades entered in Teams automatically gets entered in the school district's LMS.

    Teams needs to get better before teachers will leave Google Classroom. If Microsoft can get the above items done, it would leapfrog passed Google.
    C'mon, we are waiting.

  13. Ability to export conversation

    It would be really nice if you could export the conversation transcript for audit purposes.

    Alternatively the ability to print the transcripts into a PDF or Word document would really help. At present it's impossible to pull an extract of the conversation window, particularly useful when recording group project conversations.

  15. Team Search

    Team search only seams to search the first letters. The search doesn't search for other words in the title. This makes it hard to find Teams unless you know the exact title.

  17. 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!

  19. 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.
