I have several departments now happily using Microsoft Teams -- all good!

 

However, one feature that seems obvious -- so it may just be that I'm missing it -- is email notifications for assignments.

 

What I need to be able to do is send an email to a student when an assignment is set for them.

 

Is this possible? It's seems like it should be a basic feature.

Hey Karl, this is great feedback. I suggest you add it to our UserVoice

Students do get notified about new assignments today – but this happens in the Activity (bell) inside Teams and via Push Notification.
