I’ve just created my first Assignment in GitHub Classroom, and it’s looking good so far. There was just one thing I’d like to ask about this. Any chance there’s a way to automatically define the groups? I was allowed to (i) “Name the set of teams”, and (ii) define number of groups and students per group. That seemed promising. But I was hoping that this would also already create me the groups (using the team name as prefix). I wasn’t a fan of the idea that students can go ahead and specify any random name for their group when they create a group. Ideally, I wanted to define all group names and they allocate themselves to one of those groups. This makes it tidier (on my side) when I look at the list of group names (i.e. “Group 01”, Group 02, etc… and NOT “gr-one”, “group 2”, “Group Three” etc).
Is this possible? If not, would definitely be a nice future feature.
As I wasn’t sure if it was possible, I “hacked it” by forming the groups myself manually (using my “student account”)… I would invite myself, form a new group, name it according to my naming convention, then remove myself from the organization, and repeat. This was worth it as I didn’t have many groups. But in other courses I won’t be lucky when there’s many more groups to be made.
