Currently you can assign team member tags to group the members for group chats. I would like to use the tags to be able to assign assignments to different groups of learners, instead of picking them out individually from the class list.
Currently there is such an idea at the Microsoft Teams Uservoice, but it hasn't attracted many votes. If you support the idea, please go to Assign a assignment to group of students with a specific tag and vote for it.
Thanks @Marius Pretorius for directing me to the similar idea and for making the suggestion on UserVoice to merge the two ideas. I have upvoted this one as well.
