  1. Drag and Drop attachments

    It really slows us down to have to click Attachment and browse the finder to find an image. Would prefer drag and drop.

      This item is still completed, HOWEVER many of you have reported a new issue: drag/drop does not work when you are taking a file directly from email (i.e. Outlook) and trying to drop it into Teams. I experience the same problem every day, too!

      If you’d like this function, please add your votes to this UserVoice item for that specific drag/drop ask: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/16927345

      Thanks and hope you’re having a great day.

      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.

      • Edit Office documents without leaving Teams

        While it's wonderful you can view docs shared with a team and said doc gets placed in share-point. The moment you edit the doc you get sent to a web-browser. Considering it's literally HTML, it would be nice if that session presented with within Teams rather than a separate browser pop up. It would make the collaboration process more seamless as well s allow people to continue their persistent chat in teams while editing and not be tempted to use the suddenly disjointed chat built into word/excel.

        I feel the more seamless this experience is (only pop up word if…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • option arrow on OSX native keyboard shortcut overridden by teams

              Please REMOVE the key binding for option+left/right arrow keys on OSX. The native shortcut moves the cursor word by word (same as ctrl+arrow on windows).... I promise no one wants to navigate to the next tab over with this key binding - please revert this change and don't override any native OSX keybindings.

              And please implement the "up arrow" to edit last message. This is a time killer not having this feature.

                • 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…

                  • Files deleted in channel, not in SharePoint Recycle Bin

                    I have a channel in Teams called; Phil-Test
                    In SharePoint (Office 365 Groups), I then have a folder called; Phil-Test
                    (It relates as you would expect)

                    In that folder is a file called; Phil-Test.docx
                    That file is in the Teams under Files. It is also in the respective Office 365 Group

                    Issue:
                    Good: If I delete the file from SharePoint (Office 365 Group), it goes to the SharePoint Recycle Bin
                    Bad: If I delete the file from insite the Teams, the file disappears completely, and is NOT in the SharePoint Recycle Bin

                      We’ve implemented easier file recovery a couple months ago. So if you are afraid that deleted file is lost forever—don’t worry! Now, deleted files that were originally shared in a channel or a SharePoint tab will get sent to your SharePoint Recycle Bin. That way, if you ever need to recover a deleted file, you can head over to SharePoint and dig it out of the trash, so to speak.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Upload from MS Teams sub-folder duplicates file :-(

                          In a conversation: choose paper-clip to select a file, choose MS Teams, go into a sub-folder of the channel, select a file and post it into your conversation. --> A copy of that file is created in the root folder of the channel as a duplicate! Should be treated as a link instead of loading a duplicate.
                          This behavior does not allow a proper use of a folder structure in your channel.

                          • Channel Folders/Groups

                            Using this tool, I can easily see it start to replace many of the things I use email and other tools for. One of the biggest differences for teams/companies using this on a large scale will need is a way to put channel's into folders or groups under a particular team. That way a channel can be a long living place for standard information or it can be used for something temporary like a software release cycle and really utilize the added functionality with tabs and files.

                                • 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

                                  • You should be able to print without downloading file

                                    I want to be able to print a word/pdf file without having to download it. There should be an option to print the file.

                                    • Have the download function of files allow you to select the destination

                                      Currently files are downloaded only to the DOWNLOAD folder. Allow a save as function / select download location.

                                        • 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.
