  1. Edit Assignment Channel Once Created

    It's great that Teams has added the feature allowing us to edit the channel an assignment gets posted to, however I would like it to be possible to go back in and EDIT the channel once CREATED.
    For example if you create it and forget to select a channel, you should be able to go back in and change it to the one you want it to be visible in.

  2. More control over what posts to conversations

    I don't want my conversation feed to automatically have assignments posted. I feel like students tapping on the assignment channel is enough. Conversation should be for discussion and questions.

  3. assignment tab in new channel

    It would be really nice when creating a new channel that we are able to add an assignment tab in the new channel instead of the assignment tab just being in the general channel.... Working with students with disabilities it becomes a challenge for them to navigate back and forth if it all could be in the same place it would be amazing....

  4. Assign Assignments to specific channels

    It should be possible to assign Assignments to specific channel(s). Now, each Assignment is posted in the general channel.

  5. Assignments and channels

    Each time I set an assignment I have to change the default which is the General channel to the "Homework" channel. I'd like to make this change permanently rather than have to do so each time I set an assignment.

  6. 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.

  7. Allow teachers to assign an assignment in a private channel.

    It would be good to allow teachers to assign an assignment in a private channel. Some teachers teach small groups.

  8. The ability to give an assignment to a specific channel

    In order to facilitate small group work and literature circles (for example), and a hybrid teaching scenario, the ability to push out an assignment or quiz to one channel within a TEAM would be super helpful. My students’ schedule, combined with their lower proficiency, means I need to push out work for the group that is home, different from the group that is in class. But I also need to keep each class in one TEAM for other purposes. Being able to push something to just one channel with facilitate this type of learning.

  9. link classes in the channel for an assignment

    Hello, is there a way to link channels so that when we create one assignment, we don't have to create it 5 more times but instead just do it once for the same type of class/channel?

  10. Be able to set Assignments on multiple channels

    At the moment you can only set an assignment on the General channel, I would like to set assignments on any of the channels

  14. 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.

  15. Assignments feature per Channel

    I am an instructional coach for two different schools in an Office365 district. I read your feedback with regard to creating categories for assignments and I do like that feature for my teachers.

    I understand the reasoning for wanting to keep assignments for Teams in one centralized location, however, could there be a way to link assignments within the different channels? For example, could your design team make an app or the ability to 'create a tab' in each channel that will link to a particular assignment category?

    For example, if I am an elementary teacher…

  16. Download/locally view all files from an Assignment and the option to make an assignment in a channel

    We would like to download or view all files that students handed in.
    We prefer to see them in OneDrive but otherwise that you can download all of them. Now you have to click each student and download them one-by-one.

    And could is be possible to place assignments in a channel but that they appear for the team.

    Thanks,

  17. Would be great if you could share a Word doc directly from Word to TEAMS assignment.

    When I create a WORD doc I have to save it, then copy and paste the link into TEAMS assignment area. Would be great if I could click Share in WORD, and have the option pop up to choose a TEAM channel/assignment to add it directly from WORD.

  18. Assigning permissions to Channels

    It would be very useful if we can assigning permissions at Channels level to staff that are not part of the Team, or assign permissions within the Team to specific Channels.
