There is a new feature in Teams that allows you to tag other Team members without first typing the @ sign. When you start to write an name starting with Capital letter you will get an list with suggested people to tag and they will get an notification when you send your message. This works in both Teams desktop application and Teams web application but not in the Teams mobile app (yet). Tagging someone with @ first still works, this is just another way of doing it.

Use the scanner function on Onedrive to scan your work to send to your teacher. The app is free and automatically crops, rotates and adjusts your image to imporve the quality. You can then upload it to Teams as part of an assignment. Find out how to do this in the ‘Help and Support > Video’ section of our school website.
