  1. Create Team from existing SharePoint site, and other requests

    #1 User Request on SharePoint:
    Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

    There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another…

      So, I have got an update for you.

      We have pulled this out of “planned” and backwards to “under review” because the SharePoint team is working on a feature to allow you to convert an existing SharePoint site into a Modern Group. And as you likely already know, once it is a Modern Group, it can be easily converted into a team in Teams.

      I’m trying to get a status update from the SharePoint team on this feature — once I have it, I’ll let you know.

      Thanks for your patience and hope everyone is enjoying their August.

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • Allow drag and drop from Outlook directly to Teams

      Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.

      There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.

      • Tag Files for Searchability

        As we upload files, it would be great to have the option to add Tags for the files. That way, when utilizing search, we could enter tags to be able to find results based on the tags specified.

        • Reuse existing file in chat

          In the chat if you press the attachment icon you can select files that already exist in the channel/team, this is great if you want to talk about them without opening them first.

          BUT, the system will try to re-upload the file and the default action is to overwrite the file. I guess this will confuse users and possibly break same time collaboration. Renaming is even worse since it will create a copy just because I want to talk about the file.

          I suggest that if the file already exists within teams you only will get an embed experience rather…

          • Allow syncing of team files with OneDrive Sync Client

            I have an Office 365 Group Created and syncing with OneDrive Sync Client. I added team features to the group. When I create a new channel in my team, a new folder is created in the group files. However, this folder is locked (and shows lock in the sync icon) so I don't have permission to work with any synced files.

            • Links/attachments in chat

              If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

                    • Move channel folders to Teams folder

                      The foldere that contain the files for each channel are stored in the main Documents library of the SharePoint site. This can be confusing as to what documents are part of the Teams channels and what are just on SharePoint. Please move the channel file folders into a "Teams" folder, so that all files from Teams are together and easy to identify.

                        • Share a single file from Sharepoint

                          I can share a single file from Sharepoint with the team but it does not appear in Teams. Instead I have to share a whole library - not very handy.

                              When someone shares a MS Teams link with me, when I click to open it is opened in my browser (with a suggestion to download the app at the top) even though I have the desktop app already open and have been using it.

                              Teams links should open in the desktop app if the user has the desktop app.

                              • Connect General Channel to all root folders in SharePoint Site

                                A little nuance when creating a Team from an existing group is that the SharePoint files which were associated with that group are not available immediately. This is due to the fact that each Channel creates a folder in the document library so the 'General' channel creates an empty folder called 'General'. To get existing files into the Team you have to create Channels with the same name as the root level SharePoint folders.

                                This is pretty confusing for our users and takes significant time / creates a lot of unnecessary channels when people have a lot of root folders.

                                  • Deeper Folders

                                    Hello,

                                    It would be great if Teams could make it quicker to access deep folder structures inside of the "Files" tab. A couple of ideas would be

                                    1. Being able to make a Tab at the top that shows a specific folder in the Teams directory

                                    2. Being able to create a shortcut of sorts in the Files tab that would open the deeper folder and not leave the Files tab.

                                    BTW, Big fan of Teams!

                                    Thanks,
                                    Jordan

                                    • Cloud Storage like Box repeatedly prompts for credentials

                                      Cloud Storage like Box within Teams, keeps repeatedly prompting for credentials every 30 mins to 1 hour. Please renew the token silently before it expires. This will ease Users to access their files in Box.

                                      • Document zoom

                                        Would be great to be able to zoom in/out to different magnifications on the desktop (Mac) app. Annoying having to scroll endlessly through oversized text when the document would be legible in single page view.

                                        • I would like to be able to add a specific Sharepoint View of a document library instead of just the SP document library

                                          We can add a SP document library, but we cant add a specific view of that document library. With various people or teams working in the same SP library, we create various views for various teams. Thus adding a specific SP library view instead of "just" the full library helps in sorting and collaborating
