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 need this ASAP!
We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.
Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.
The apps will soon be categorized making it much easier to find what you wish to add for your personal convenience. You will see a Category dropdown list where you can choose which type of apps to view. Some options will be “Communication”, “Files + Documents”, “News and Weather”, “Productivity”, and “Reference” just to name a few. Look for this to be released early in the new calendar year.
Thank you for your feedback! -Warren
What I was told is that Classroom IS going away and Teams is the replacement. At the end of June Microsoft released the ability to create a new Team and then specify if you want to make a Class. At the bottom left click Add Team, then Create a Team, then a pop-up will give you the option of choosing a Class. There are features that are not completely rolled out yet. It appears that the majority of Teams as a Class is released.
Unfortunately I need to switch this back to Under Review. The feature team is investigating how best this could be implemented.
Embed them into the conversations would be nice too!
This item is still in the planning stages. No new details to share at this time.
When an assignment is created in a class, it only shows up in the assignment tab within that class. In Classroom when an assignment was created it also showed in the students' calendars. This would be a great addition especially if students are in multiple classes they'll be able to see all their assignments in their calendar.
