Save an assignment as a draft in Microsoft Teams

Save an assignment as a draft in Microsoft Teams

Save an assignment as a draft if you're not ready to assign it to your students yet. You can return to the assignment later on to edit, assign, or delete it.

  1. Navigate to the General channel under the desired classroom, then select Assignments.

  2. Select New Assignment.

  3. From within an assignment you’ve created, select Save as draft. You need a title to save an assignment.

    • Draft assignments appear on the Assignments tab Week view. If you haven't entered one yet, the due date will default to the day after you save it.

    • Co-teachers can save and edit assignments, too.

    Select Save as draft.


  • Your assignment will save automatically if you select the back button. All assignments require a title.

  • Edit or assign the assignment later by returning to the Assignments tab and selecting the assignment card.

    Select Assignments from the side panel.
