    .dot and xlt files have been around since the early days of office. Simply working in a team space doesn't make these any less useful.

    As a team, you might all want to work to a standard precedent but teams doesn't currently support any of the MS Office template files. I've seen plenty of different workarounds, but just being able to run a .dotx or .xltx file directly from teams, which then creates a new, blank, unnamed document isn't possible.

    Please add the support / functionality around template files.

    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.

    It would be great to see this as an integration with TurnItIn - It is a platform already heavily used in education and has the benefit of having already been used and therefore had it's plagarism database built on for many years. This would probably be a better solution than trying to build a home-grown solution, since you'd be starting that collection process all over again with new submissions.

    The advantage with turnitin is that it is a originality checker too.

    We also use TurnItIn.com and their feedback studio product. For MS teams to be taken seriously as a means of submitting assignments, we really must have the ability to integrate with services like Turn It In - the functionality around marking and offering feedback is a great start, but I can see this limiting adoption.

    It might be tempting to create your own plagarism checker too, but the benefit to services which already exist is that they have built up a portfolio of prior student works, so therefore have something to check against.

    If the plugin were available, I think it's important that for each and every assignment, you have the ability to choose whether the plugin / plagarism checker is used or not.

    Thanks

    I think for teams to really find a place for teachers / tutors, it has to integrate with some of their current workflows A turnitin plagairism checker within the assignments section of teams would be a great addition to the product.
