  3. grades

    It would be great if you could have an assignment and grading section under each content channel created. This way grades can be separated by content.

  4. I want the ability to choose to post a created assignment to any channel or NO channel at all.

    After creating an assignment I currently have to pick a channel to post it too. I want the choice to not post to any channel.

  5. More tab space

    I think there needs to be space for 7 tabs on a standard 12 inch laptop.
    Unfortunately, it can't be done. But if I could customize how teams looked then this is what I'd do..

    A) The Channel Menu width reduced by 30%.

    B) The Team Name should be displayed over 3 lines. (Would Also solve the issue of long Team names being unreadable)

    C) The Team Icon isn't needed in the tabs bar at all (Except in the tiny window version when the Channel menu auto hides).

    D) The Channel Name could be a line above tabs. eg.

    General …

  6. For staff collaboration, it would be useful to have the ability to search tasks in Planner for key words across users, channels and teams

    For Staff collaboration I would like the ability to search Planner tasks for key words. And have that ability across teams, channels, and individual task assignments

  7. Split assignments by channels or add grouping of students

    We are looking into creating a whole Teams group for each year group, with the subjects split as channels, or having the subjects as a group with the year groups split as channels.

    Would it be possible to be able to assign to each individual channel, rather than just in the general tab; if there is a Mathematics group with various sets, it can be confusing for students to see so many assignments from different groups.

    The other alternative is to individually assign assignments to students each time they are set, but it is not…

  8. List channels in alphabetical order in Assignments

    When assigning assignments to multiple channels there is no order of the channels listed, they are in random order. It would be ideal if they were in alphabetical order so teachers could easily identify the Teams in an order ensuring the assignments were assigned to the right/all the channels.

    Example teachers need to assign an assignment to multiple classes.
    To assign it to Teams the names of the channels are in very random order. This makes it difficult to make sure all the channels were assigned the assignment.

  9. Create assignments in non-general channel(s)

    I think that each new channel should have an assignment tab to cut out all of the extra steps of going back into general, creating the assignment and then having to assign it to the channel you started off in. It would streamline the process significantly.

  10. Change the assignments folder to a more simple one

    I would like it very much if all the assignments that were assigned to students appear in a single folder, and not in a folder for each subject, as it currently appears, this would help students a lot because we really waste a lot of our precious time by searching for the right assignment or the right channel of the right subject when it could just be on a folder with all the other assignments that still have to be handed in.

  11. Scheduling assignments for multiple periods at the same time. Rather than assigning the assignment and going to each channel to modify

    Scheduling one assignment for multiple period channels at the same time on the same page rather than assigning the assignment and going back to modify the release time for each section

  12. Ability to sort assignments by grading period

    When using teams as a full school year framework for online/hybrid learning the assignments can become overwhelming for teachers and students to find relevant assignments as the year progresses. It would be nice to either allow the students and teachers to sort and hide old assignments either by channel descriptors or created assignment categories.

  14. Ability to turn off all alerts on a channel

    There needs to be an ability to turn off ALL alerts on a channel.

    Some admin staff need to be a member of a large number of channels for administration purposes, but not to get alerts every time the channel is @'ed or an assignment is posted.

  15. I would like to have the ability to select a specific channel for SPECIFIC assigned students to find an assignment.

    When selecting specific students on assignments, there is not an option to change the channel that the assignment goes to and it automatically posts in the general channel. I would like to have the option to change it to a specific channel for those selected students in the future. This option currently only works when all students are given the same assignment, but not specifically selected students.

  16. Ability to select a channel instead of individual pupils when creating assignment

    Currently, when creating an assignment you only have the option to create it for the whole general team or to individually select people. It would be great to be able to select the channels within that team to save a lot of time!

  18. Allow assign tasks to private channels, not just general or public ones.

    We need the option to assign a specific task to a private channel. We can create smaller groups between a class and assign them to a private channel, but the system doesn't allow to assign them tasks on these private channels. We also need the ability to schedule meetings in this private channels.

  19. Use assignment settings for team when using "create from existing" for assignments

    Right now when you create an assignment, you can set team assignment settings for the channel it will post in, time due, whether new students will be added, etc. If you copy from existing, instead of using these same values, Teams uses the Teams values. It should use the values for the team if those values have been set.

  20. Public Channels- allow us to assign members!!!

    Please allow us to assign members of a team to public channels, it is still a valuable grouping strategy, and it pointless to have multiple public channels if no one can be assigned to it.
