The Assignments tab appears in Microsoft teams client. How to use it? I can't find any configuration option in Office 365 admin portal.

I saw it at a customer Today and I was also wondering how it works...it also seems that this is something specific for Edu tenants.

Hi Tiger,

That Assignments tab is part of the new Classroom Teams functionality. Try creating a new 365 group and choose "class" as the type. That will make you a "teacher" in that group and you can create assignments.

Enjoy!

Thanks, that is great.

No CLASS type there:

i am reffering to the right group creation?

I created a class team, but the Assignment tab is not visible. Is there a setting I need to adjust to enable the feature?

Same here - can create a new 'Class' team - but Assignments tab is missing. Only have 'Conversations', 'Files' and 'Class Notebook'. Can't see any way to create an Assignment.

HI,

 

If I create a new class then I can get the assignment tab.

 

Is there any way of adding the assignment tab to an existing team?

 

I just have my team setup already and do not like the idea of starting again.

 

Highlighted

I have the same thing, too.  I see assignments in the vertical menu and when I select it, it takes me to an assignments 'about' page.  There is an icon that says 'tab' but I don't see any way to add it as a tab within the notebook.  I included a screen shot of what I'm seeing.

I was able to get the 'Assignments' tab visible in Teams by enabling external apps in the Microsoft Teams configuration in the Office 365 admin portal:

This setting was originally disabled in our tenant - but once it was enabled we saw the 'Assignments' tab work correctly again. Hope this helps others with similar experience.

You must also have a faculty license (we have an A1 Faculty subscription)

We had a number of Student Licenses that had Pro-Plus, so I was assigning the teacher s these for the App usage, however they were not able to see the Assignment tab (or create a "Class"  type of Team, until I applied the Faculty license. (don't forget the Team access to outside apps global  enabling as well) 

Hope this helps someone.

I got it solved without getting to the admin center.

The solution is the following:

1. Click on the + 

2. Click on More Apps

3. Select All from the list in the left side bar

4. Write assignment in the search box 

5. Click on the Assignment App 

M_M_a_1-1599546508690.png

6. You will find the word open. Click on the arrow pointing down

7. Select add to a team (you will find the same team you need to add the assignment tab to) 

8. Then click on Set up a bot 

 

That's all
