I'm very glad to report that a feature request that I submitted for Microsoft Teams has now shipped. Up to now students could be muted in a particular team. However, there was no way to switch private chat off. In a school context there are at least some

Currently Assignments are very useful as they are. Imagine what they can be, by allowing you to add a Microsoft Form Quiz as an assignment and, especially, if the Quiz score would update the Assignment total! Wouldn't that be a great feature? Which teache

Perhaps you can list features that you have discovered and features that are still missing, or not working as they should.

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.
