We’re excited to expand our release of Turnitin in Teams Assignments! Join the Early Access Program and get an exclusive opportunity to test drive the integration before it’s launched more broadly. (You must have a Turnitin license.)
Update on this feature please.
Hi everyone – we are getting ready to release the weekly parent/guardian Assignments email summary.
If you’re interested in using this feature we recommend getting started today by setting up the Parent and Guardian Sync using Microsoft School Data Sync.
More information about how to set this up is here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/schooldatasync/parent-contact-sync
We will be sure to update you once we release this functionality inside Teams.
We're in 2019, any update?
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
We are still working on this item but would like some feedback from you!
This survey would provide us with valuable insight and help drive several requests. It should only take a couple minutes to quickly fill out.
We’re still aiming for early this calendar year (2018) if development and testing go well.
We are 1/4 of the way through 2018... still on track?
496 days and counting...
Echoing the 595 other comments. What's the go?
Update on this one please? I assume it's ready to go? You said Early 2018...
We're almost a quarter of the way through.
Lol @ Below.
So the Teams Team have been working on this since at least November... 2016!
Oh gosh. Fingers crossed they can deliver before 2020.
Add more resources to it. It's an essential feature.
Will this work with OneNote ClassNotebook's? I am envisioning a new Collaboration Space section being created with each new private team...
Can you please loop in the Edu team when you're creating the workflow?
+1 private channels
We need 'Private' CHANNELS (separate teams not so important).
June update? I assume before the end of this month...

Rumour has it, this is coming THIS summer! Woo! Thanks @Suphatra for getting this happening.
You can permission folders through SharePoint?
This shouldn't be too much of a stretch, right?
Any closer to an ETA for this one?
Is there an ETA for this?
"Working on it.
This is on it's way.
Stay tuned for more updates as this moves along!
And if you need anything else, just ping me on Twitter or email.
Echoing that 'try this instead' is not a viable solution.
Please enable private channels in teams... I suspect this has been put in the 'too hard basket' because of the granular permissions required for the embedded OneNote sections, document libraries etc. It'll be worth the effort.
Agreed! This is really holding us back from completely utilising Teams.
This feature request is still in the works. I hope to have more updates soon. I’ll keep you posted.
Is this a joke? Why would sorted by modified every be the default? No way to change it?
What is this madness.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this feature request has been declined.
This is never going to happen, unfortunately.
This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team. No new details to share at this time.
It's possible in other teams - just have the same functionality for Class Teams.
Yes please :)
This item is still in the planning stages. No new details to share at this time.
Agreed, there needs to be a way for parents to be able to view a student's upcoming assessment.
We currently produce an 'assessment calendar (Word doc)' that we send to parents. It would be much better if parents could see their child's upcoming assessment via a link.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
I'll chuck a vote in.
This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.
This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
Need to be able to link to a folder, rather than a document library! Our document library has folders that are 10-deep... this is a major oversight.
We need to be able to point to a specific FOLDER rather than an entire document library.
At the moment you can add a SharePoint Document Library as a Tab. However, we want to add individual folders in that Document Library as a Tab.
This feature request has been accepted by the feature team and is now on the backlog.
Thank you for all the feedback.
Currently, list view is the only view available for 'Files' in Teams.
Please implement the same thumbnails and preview experience as SharePoint Online (i.e. Grid View).
Microsoft Whiteboard App is in preview. Rollout to public users will be coming soon. You can find more details here:
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
I agree with the comments about the left column/navigation being too big and limiting the usefulness of the 'tabs'.
Please allow the ability to collapse the left column/navigation.
Agreed. It is huge and our 'Tabs' are limited in functionality because of it.
Either change the size of the left navigation, or, allow the ability to collapse the navigation.
This feature request is now in the planning stage. As more details become available, I will post them here.
Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.
Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.
I’m switching the status to Partially Done.
The request for a Preview Team is still in the works. No new information is available at this time.
Team Discoverability is still being worked upon, no details are available at this time. If you support this idea please navigate over to the main topic and vote for it! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/
