  1. SDS - hide synced groups from address list

    (posting for posterity and voting)

          • Admin Console for Global/Tenant Admins

            An admin portal for tenant/global admins would be great, allowing us overview on classrooms created manually as well as via SIS. Administrative oversight is very important when staff are allowed to create their own and currently we cant see any which are created by them.

            • Update groups list in OWA and OneDrive based on Classroom's Section Status of Active/Inactive

              Classes synced in via SDS are marked with an Active or Inactive status. I would like the Groups list displayed within OWA and OneDrive to only display those classes marked Active.

              • Teachers should be able to work ahead adding class information during the summer if wanted.

                If I put all my assignments in my classes for the end of this year, will I be able to duplicate these or copy these to my new classes for next year?

                  • Extend Student list to allow links to other systems

                    Allow us to add links for each Student examples include:
                    * Students OneDrive
                    * Business Intelligence Reports (on Premise) - would need to be able to include the Student ID for each student

                      • Please clarify the purpose/use cases for Microsoft Forms vs. an InfoPath replacement.

                        Microsoft Forms seems to have many relevant use cases within the classroom as a simple quiz or survey builder (no specific use cases are currently published that I could find); however, not robust enough to function as a viable InfoPath replacement. How are other districts modeling the use of Microsoft Forms and filling the gap the deprecation of InfoPath left?

                        • Provide a way to view the student end of assignments in MS Classroom so as to test run each activity.

                          Provide a way to see the students view of assignments before they are assigned. This way teachers can test run the process before it is done in class.

                          • Reminders

                            Be able to change the reminder time from the assignment creation page so students can receive a reminder for the due work the night before (or even a few nights before depending on the size of the work). Possibly to be able to set two deadlines.

                                • Can create assignment in the classroom to connected Onenote for class

                                  For now you can connect from OneNote for class to the classroom, so you can give students assignment, which then be created in the classroom.
                                  But you CANT create an assignment in the classroom and the send it to a connected Onenote for class, unless you are using the native OneNote in the classroom.
                                  So it would be really nice from the Classroom, to be able to connect to any given connected OneNote for class, so you only have to work in the classroom, when you add assignments to the student

                                    • 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.

                                        • Teachers deleting students

                                          What happens if a teacher deletes a student by mistake –
                                          Where does the student’s work go?
                                          How do we get it back?
                                          Will the sync do this or not?

                                            When a teacher deletes a student, their turned-in homework remains in their OneDrive for business folder, so, no work is lost.

                                            The student will lose access to the Class (assignments list, conversations, etc.) and Class Notebook until they are added back to the class.

                                            Sync will remove students from a class but does not remove student content.
