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.

While we are happy to let our staff manage each class we also need to allow department heads to see the content. The only way I can see is to set them as a second teacher, but this isn't really desirable. What is the recommendation?

I've recently been looking at Teams on a Dev tenant and was impressed how well they integrated the Conversations, Files and notes areas.  By comparision Classroom is quite basic and just opens various new tabs.

Strange thing happened in my lessons today. Classroom displayed different languages on each studnet's account. The language also kept changing after browsing in and out of assignments.

It works fine for me... could it be that there has been a service degradation in Education Services (viewable in de the admin center)?

Is anyone at Microsoft looking into this, as the problem still exists, and it is very difficult for our students to navigate when it is written in cyrillic!

It's great that we can export gardes from activities to Excel. However, it would be even greater if all marks (and possibly comments) could be collated in one master Makrbook for each class. That would make it much easier to see information about students

It all appears to be working again.  I have gotten logged in and made an assignment successfully after they called to state it was operational again.

Same here in central Illinois. I submitted a support request through the Office365 Admin portal and through the edu.uservoice.com site, waiting for a response.

Suddenly everything works again. I'll just hope it doesn't keep happening for our teachers. It's especially frustrating when the O365 servicestatus says everything is ok.

This matches our experience. It's good, but the UI needs to be more coherent. Opening in a new tab is not a substitute for proper navigation.

I have had users tell me (and provide screen grabs) of a suggested Class Notebook section entitled 'Parent zone' being presented during the setup process from Classroom. However, I cannot recreate this. Is there some element of A/B testing in play? Is thi
