While I'm on the top of requested features, last week I actually met Jennifer Holland from Google. She works on the Google Classroom development team. Did you know that you can actually submit feature requests and Jen will read EVERY SINGLE ONE?!? Just click on the question mark in the bottom left hand corner of your Classroom screen to be given ways to get in touch with them.
