  1. Alert students of feedback when assignment is graded.

    Students need an alert telling them, or a direct link to graded assignments so they are prompted to read feedback given by a teacher. As it stands. Teachers can put feedback but students have no prompt to read that information or even know that an assignment has been graded.

  2. Create quick class polls in MS Teams

    In the conversations area we need the ability to add a quick question for formative assessment purposes. The different types needed would be: multiple choice, text and ticktboox. The instant feedback to the teacher can be used to judge how the class, or individuals, are progressing with the lesson.

  3. 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.

    we have this!  ·  Justin Chando responded

    If you’re not planning on using the class functionality in Teams, O365 IT Admins can remove the Assignments app in the Teams Admin Center under Teams apps > ‘Permission policies’.

    You can set a user policy (remove it for a set of users) or a global one that removes the Assignments app for everyone in your tenant.

    Before you do this, make sure to double check if any faculty are using Assignments. We’ve seen Assignments be used in all sorts of ways successfully, even without students. You can always add back Assignments by removing the policy.

  4. Add a member to an already set assignment

    To use this as a school it really needs to have an option to add members to assignments after the assignment has been set. Currently if I have a new student added to the class then I have to delete the assignment and then send it out again.

    When new students get added to a Class team, students will get all the assignments that have been assigned to the class.

    Note: it may take several minutes for the assignments to distribute to the newly added student(s).

  5. Assignment Feedback

    It would be great if teachers could offer feedback to assignments without having to enter a grade. The assignments is locked from being able to resubmit. If students can get the feedback, make corrections, and then resubmit the assignment teachers would be able to use it better.

    You can add feedback to assignments at any time. Students can unsubmit, work on the assignment some more, and turn in their work again as long as the Assignment’s ‘Close date’ has not passed.

  6. It would be awesome if we could have a Microsoft Forms tab for Microsoft Team channels

    Microsoft Forms for Microsoft Team channels would be incredibly handy!

  7. Manage Assignments - allow edit/delete

    To be able to delete assignments, turn back with feedback to students an allow them to review and turn in again.

    When you assign points to student's assignment, be able to modify and turn back the assignment to the student.

  8. Add or share assignment to multiple classes / teams

    It would be awesome to be able to share the same assignment with multiple teams. As it is, I have to copy/paste my assignment multiple times - sometimes as many as twenty!

  11. Teachers would love to have students be able to turn in assignments via the mobile app. Also, be able to upload pdf's.

    Mobile app does not allow students to turn in assignments. Pdf's also cannot be uploaded. Many teachers need this. Thank you.

  12. Is it possible or available to be able to turn off the meet now option for students?

    Would like to disable the meet now function in a classroom team to prevent bullying or inappropriate content. Is this possible?

  13. Camera icon to take and upload photograph scan of work using mobile app directly from within assignment student view

    I wish that a student could, using the mobile app, take a photograph/scan document from within the student's view of the assignment and that this document is then automatically attached to the assignment.

    An added extra would be, if the assignment were linked to a OneNote page, the scan would be pasted there.

    Current workarounds using OneDrive, Office Lens, OneNote app are quite complex and present barriers to use by students.

  15. allow users to add/create teams from the mobile apps

    Lots of users are mobile-only, so it seems like an oversight to require users to sign into the desktop app to add themselves to teams or create a new one before they can even use the mobile app. The mobile app finds my info just fine, why not team info too?

    (Topic cloned from public request - due to EDU not having this functionality at this time. )

  16. Complete student history

    If a student makes self corrections during the time the teacher goes over the assignment then cannot tell if the student turned it on time. Record unsubmit or both times it was turned in so teacher can keep track of assignments turned in on time.

    For Assignments, you can see the history of the work, Open up the Assignment, select the students, and in the Grading Page, select View History.

    For longer history in this view, you need to enable Insights. You can find more information about insights here
