  2. Syncing Folders to devices with other software like Synology Cloud Sync

    Synology has the capability to sync files from OneDrive for Business through their "Cloud Sync" application, I would like to be able to sync files from team sites as well for local storage.

  3. Remember the last folder you where in when you attach links from OneDrive

    When attaching files from OneDrive remember the previous location rather than navigation through the folders every time.

  4. Onedrive for Business integration for mobile apps.

    Don't know why this isn't available by now. Would it be possible to have OneDrive for Business integrated with mobile apps?

    needs your feedback  ·  Warren responded

    Would someone be able to provide feedback in the comments as to what is the expectation of this integration? What functionality is being asked for?

    Any details to better understand the request is appreciated.

    -Warren

  5. Azure Storage as an option when adding cloud storage for files.

    Have a UI to add your storage endpoint and interact with files. (Maybe AzCopy under the hood?)

  6. My Files tab is not working.

    The files tab is not working on any of my channels. Its simply stating "We are setting up your file directory" It has been stating that for days. Its clearly not working properly.

  7. Select Default File Repositiry

    As most companies already have an established File Repository either in O365, NAS or other cloud storage and cant afford to have users putting files in different locations due to confusion, allow the Team owner upon creation to specify a location for Files and use this location as the default when doing attachments and links.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just click on “Files” tab from inside the channel, and then click the “New” button. A drop down will appear — select “Folder”.

  9. Way too easy to break Teams Files features

    When you create a Channel, it creates a corresponding folder in SharePoint with the same name.

    If you make any changes to the Channel name, the change does not flow through - the folder keeps the original name which will be confusing for system users.

    The next thing the user will naturally do is go to the SharePoint view and change the name of the folder to match the new name of the Channel.

    But when you change the name of the folder from the original name, it completely breaks the Files tab which then says files can't be found.

  10. Better sending of files between team and personal OneDrives.

    It would be awesome to be able to send files from my personal OneDrive (in the Files section) to one of the team drives.

    When you right click it could say "Send to team...". If you click on it, it will pop out a list of your teams. You select a team, and it pops up with a dialogue similar to the Share File dialogue in chat to choose where to save it.

    Additionally, in the Team > Channel > Files tab, there could be a Add File from My OneDrive, that pops up with a Dialogue similar to the…

  12. Save & share documents with Onedrive in Teams! Sharepoint must be merge it!

    I think we must make Teams more user friendly, the sharepoint must be closed because we don’t need it! We have Onedrive to save documents and we can share it with Teams ! i understand not why you bringing many the same functions! You must Merge same functionalty to make it smaller and userfrindly! Then you must make, that we can share channls with different users. Because expamle: if we have a Marketing Division (Team), i don’t want that all users or certain users can see certain documents.

  14. Files can set default folder path or save opened folder.

    Hi Teams,

    When I open the Files in the Teams, I prefer to open my last folder or I can set default folder One Drive path in files.

  15. Excel spreadsheet not working from inside Teams app

    When creating an Excel Spreadsheet directly in the Files section in the Teams App (Windows 10 Enterprise), the file is being listed in the files area, but is not possible to open. It claims that the format is incorrect. When opening the same file area in Sharepoint Online, the file is created just fine and can be opened in the Teams file area. This appears as a clear bug as we did not utilise any "special characters" either.

  16. XLSX File Viewer needs to show dates correctly

    Having setup a team and included an Excel file; I note that within Teams; it is incorrectly showing dates as m/dd/yyyy rather than the correct dd/mm/yyyy format for UK users - everything else on my PC is showing the dates formatted correctly apart from this application!

  17. Teams isn't Instagram - show photo info

    When I post photos in Teams, it's usually because I'm seeking info/approval about work to do on it or which one to use for something. People MUST be able to see the filename and other file metadata—and from within Teams, not by bouncing out to SharePoint. Thank you.

  18. Select text in file preview

    When we preview a file in Teams we cannot select and copy text from it. Seems silly. Why not?

  19. Unable to Post Files from Dropbox in Private Chat

    Thank you so much for adding the Dropbox Integration! Love it...

    One request though, it doesn't exist for private chats, only for teams... See attached screenshot. The Dropbox option is missing from my private Chat, even though I have added my dropbox account and am able to post from dropbox to the team.

    Can we please make Private Chat behave just like a private, informal Team? We need the file attachment function to work identically in chats as it does in teams... When I post a message to somebody, I should be able to always just include an…

  20. sending files in teams to email recipients

    Files already in teams need to be sent to external users via email for their use. Send either as attachment or link to a ondrive folder that they can get to without 1000 hoops . Every time I try to share via a link the receiver cannot open it and i end up doing it the old fashioned way.
