  1. set a publish date for assignments

    Add a publish date to assignments - when set, an assignment is hidden until the publish date, then appears to students. This way, a teacher could enter assignments in advance, timed to appear when appropriate for students.

    • "Lock" documents after assignment has been graded and returned

      A document should be locked for editing after a teacher grades and returns it. Students should not be able to delete or change anything after it has been graded and returned.

      • Allow teachers to see student's uploaded work before it's submitted.

        It would be great if teachers could see student's uploaded work before it's submitted.

        Currently the student has to turn in the work before the teacher can see it.

        This would allow for progressive drafting etc.

          • Show classes for teachers/students in SDS Admin Portal

            it would be nice in the Admin portal if an admin could click on a student/teacher, see all the sections they are assigned to, and then click on that section for the section details.

            • Improved status/progress report when syncing SIS data

              It would be nice to be able to see a bit more information when we're syncing out SIS data. Things like the last sync time, current progress, any issues that have already come up, etc.

              Right now I've just uploaded a CSV full of SIS data and all I can see is the "Sync Enabled" screen so I have no idea where it is in processing the list.

              • SDS - hide synced groups from address list

                (posting for posterity and voting)

                Make it so that groups synced by SDS do not show up in the Groups pane in OWA.

                • Assignments & Mass Deletion

                  In Classroom, the option to delete assignments en masse via check boxes next to the assignments would be wonderful. Currently, if I want to delete multiple assignments, I must do so individually for each class.

                    Thank you for your suggestion. We’re considering bulk management options for assignments as a future feature.

                      A few clarifying points / questions about class membership and the address book:

                      1. Classes today have hidden membership (you have to be a member of the class to see other members in the class).

                      2. An email to the class alias will be rejected if you are not also a member of the class.

                      Are there other specific scenarios that customers are trying to block by hiding the Class (class name and alias) from being listed in the address book?

                      -Isaac

                    • Add the ability to filter the error logs when uploading SIS data

                      The error interface is currently a bit too difficult to navigate quickly, especially where there are a large number of errors in the SIS data.

                      It'd be nice if we could filter the error log to focus on specific types of errors (related to users vs classes, etc).

                        Hi Sean, thank you for sharing this feedback! I’m so sorry we didn’t get back to you earlier. We are definitely looking into how to improve the error logging in SDS, and will try to see how we can apply your feedback. Thank you
