    Thanks for the feedback and support on this one. We definitely understand the need. The team is currently reviewing how we can increase the file upload size here.

    As a workaround in the meantime, perhaps you can have students submit a link to the file stored on their personal OneDrive.

    The 50mb upload limit is making Teams unusable for us.

    Here’s some examples where Teams file size limits have forced teachers to look for an alternative (and produced a growing anti-teams sentiment which is disheartening as a IT admin)

    11 Physical Education:
    Students have to submit a multimodal presentation (mp4) with footage of gameplay.

    10/11/12 Media
    Students have to submit a range of files from student films (mp4) to 3D renderings etc.

    11/12 ICT
    Students submit a multimodal presentation with voiceover and video (.pptx or .mp4) > 50mb
    Students submit a series of RAW images > 500mb.

    11/12 Graphics/Design
    Students submit cad files that can exceed 500mb.

    7-10 Digital Technologies
    Students have to submit a .zip game file that can exceed 500mb with game sounds/assets/etc.
    Students submit a .mp4 demonstrating functionality.

    11/12 Digital Solutions
    Students submit .mp4 videos demonstrating the functionality of a coded project.

    I can gather more examples if that would help the Teams team? These are just ones that I’ve had to help teachers with in the past week. Sure, word docs are fine, but as soon as teachers want to do anything remotely creative, Teams falls flat.

    Can we please have either a setting that allows IT admins to choose the limit, or if it’s a concern with student upload time have a UI that gives them feedback (“It looks like you’re uploading a big file, this might take a moment”)? The current solution of limiting files to 50mb means teachers are moving away from Teams for all assignments, not just large-file assignments.

    Unfortunately I need to switch this back to Under Review. The feature team is investigating how best this could be implemented.

    I assume this is because the Sway product is being phased out?
