    Update - really need a simple assignments report tool!
    Today, I was asked to generate a report of all the assignments set to a single student Isolating due to Covid. I needed to provide both the date assigned, due date and status.
    Process: I had to add myself to each class, run a report from Grades for each and combine them. And, the reports only show due date.

    Is there an update as to when this might be possible? Each day that goes by we have a different set of students isolating - we desperately need to be able to report on this for leaders in the School. Thank you

    There has been an update to Insights this week that is definitely a step in the right direction - well done!
    So, we can now see breakdown analysis for each class that we are a member of, and also get a report of the hand-in rate per assignment. This works well.
    For me as admin, I need a single click report that will give me a list of all-school students, all their assignments by class team and the hand in data alongside. Granted this would be a lengthy report.
    But, we also need to be able to do this by teacher, for quality assurance.
    Keep up the good work, thank you

    I agree fully with the descriptions here. I am currently adding myself to class teams to access individual student and whole class data. It is an impossible task with over 900 class teams.

    Using an overarching Insights system would work well BUT it is important that not all staff get insight into all classes. We could apply this using an app setup permission policy.

    Then, for the insights over all classes: we need to be able to filter by a teacher, or a student, or both, also a group of classes or a single class. We need to be able to track activity, assignments issued, assignments handed in, feedback trends.

    Commenters have mentioned the need for PowerBI integration, but my opinion is that if the all-class-insights was implemented well enough, this might perhaps negate the need for direct PowerBI integration?

    Thank you for your feedback. The Teams EDU engineering team is currently testing our Supervised Chat feature, that provides a safe solution in education that allows chat to be turned off for student-to-student communication, while still allowing students to connect with their teachers and peers in acsafe manner. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    You can track this item on our public roadmap, https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=81359

    Hello wonderful educators and students! I read a report recently that nearly 750M students (of the worlds 1.6B students) attend schools that were closed in October due to the global pandemic. Please know that your Microsoft team is listening hard to the needs of this community.

    Regarding assignments integration with Calendar, we have made significant progress and look forward to making this available everyone as soon as possible.
