As our university is new to Canvas after migrating from another system this year, we are struggling with group assignments. This is what causes most problem after the migration. The teachers don't make groups, or if they do, the students do not enter them.

This way there will be two options for Group Assignments, one where the students have Groups homepages and space for collaboration, and one where they just do their Assignment. The last option will be easier for teachers and students.
