Those new to Ms Teams for EDU - long live the brave - should be aware of some caveats!

I have this feeling that Microsoft may drop Classroom.

Has there been a date announced for Classroom to move out of beta?  I am working with a school district that uses it quite a bit with their Class Notebook integrations.

Michael, I would agree with this.


It would seem that Teams is an excellent framework for what they're trying to accomplish in Classroom. Perhaps overkill for some classro

Is anyone from Microsoft even looking at these community groups anymore? I'm not feeling much love for Classroom from Microsoft.


Hi all,


I recently implemented a Classroom with one of my classes. I set an assignment, and students decided to start writing on the message board. Unfortunately they were not mature with this and started writing millions of pointless messages. I got an e

You should be able to do this with the Yammer group created with Classroom. The students would have to subscribed.
Just an update to say, 6 months on still not possible and not even a reply from Microsoft.
This still doesn't seem to be possible. Even though you can tick the box, when you go to save you get the message that the group cannot be saved at this time.
