  1. Can we have files open directly from Teams instead of launching a browser?

    I really dislike having to log back in and it seems like an extra unnecessary step to have to open the browser first, login, then open the file, at that point (at least for the files aspect) teams seems unnecessary.

  2. Syncronize button dierctly to Files tab

    Synchronize Files -button should be placed directly into the Files tab next to other buttons, instead of having to jump to SharePoint site first and start synchronizing from there.

  3. Location column value(s) clickable

    Within the Files page (from the left-side bar) could the Location column value(s) be configured as clickable to quickly take you to that Team > Channel > Files tab?

  4. 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.

  6. Copy & Paste a link causes an error

    Copy & Paste a link causes an error:
    If I go to files, select a document, click on "get link", copy it, paste it in an email and make it an hyperlink, the recipient of the email gets an error message "page not found".
    If I do the same but make a piece of text a hyperlink with this copied link, opening the link is successful.

  7. Owners should be able to APPROVE document uploads before it's posted by someone who isn't an owner.

    Ownership of Teams should include an "approve" function for others who are not an owner, when they are uploading documents. For instance, if I have a team of 110 with 15 "owners" I wouldn't want everyone uploading their documents, as they may be uploading an inefficient document. I would like for them to upload it, but before it is posted, it has to be approved by any one of the 15 owners. Once one of the owners has approved the document, the other owners will no longer have it on their "to do" list to approve, and the document will…

  8. files view

    Hello, I encounter a recurring problem on Teams in the Files part: the ascending order according to the name of the file does not remain saved and at each opening, the files are displayed again according to the date of modification. Can you tell me if I can change this setting. Thank you.

  10. Create markdown files (.md) editables in a tab with a preview available

    It would be great to be able to create markdown file and be able to modify it in a tab as it is possible for office documents .
    Edit it in a tab with a similar experience as in vs Code and a preview of the markdown file would really be interested too.

  11. Box docs open options

    Currently, you can link to Box cloud storage in MS Teams and open documents in the online version of the tool; i.e. Excel Online, Word Online, PPT Online. But you are not given the option to open the Box file in the desktop app.

    It would beneficial if you can have the option to open the file either in the online or desktop environments. If you can't do it from Teams at least be given the option once you are in the online environment. So if I open an Excel file stored in Box and it opens up in Excel…

  12. Ability to post video's and compress them

    My clients would like to get rid off all unsupported communication methods. What is preventing their employees to only use teams, is the lack of support of posting video's to a channel. Additionaly it would be fantastic if the video's are compressed as well to save storage.

    So please add the possibility to add compressed video's next to images for better user adoption.

  14. Share document from Files in an assignment

    When creating an assignment for my students I can't find how to attach a file from the 'Files' area - I need to link to a file outside of teams. This doesn't seem logical.

  15. Allow to hide "Files" from the header menu.

    My company wants all the files to be stored in SharePoint Libraries and access rights managed in Sharepoints. If a Teams is deleted, the files related shouldn't disappear.
    Therefore it will be nice to be able to hide "Files" from the header menu of the Team in order to avoid the user to store files at the wrong place.

  16. How about giving some feedback when a file downloads in default settings?

    I just downloaded a file 4 times because Teams doesn't ask me where to download it and that download arrow on the files icon is not exactly obvious.

    There also doesn't seem to be a way to change the default settings for where files are stored, and I didn't see a way to get notifications for when a file is changed or added.

    I find that fine-tuned user control over settings like this is very useful for these kinds of collaboration apps. For instance, too many notifications and I'm not going to use it because it annoys the **** out…

  18. Adding more than 20 files is not possible

    When adding more than 20 files at the same time you get a message that maximum is 20. Should me more or limitation to size instead.

  19. Rich thumbnails for files

    Can we get rich thumbnails for files the same way SharePoint document libraries now show? Pictures would show a preview and Office documents can show small thumbnails too

  20. Make it possible to limit file downloads

    There are files I'd like our teams to be able to see, but not download/alter. There should be an option for owners to manage this.
