Exciting developments, but we cannot use Teams until it is fully functional on an iPad. Currently no iPad browser is supported by Teams and the app does not have the assignments tab. Teams will also need to be able to work on OS9 iPads as well as later operating systems. I have a post on Uservoice and you will see that there are others with this issue as well. Also compatibilty with Android is being requested. Everyone would love to be able to use Teams. We have no such issues with other Microsoft products.
