  1. Change file storage place in Sharepoint

    Please allow the ability to change where files are being stored. It's very annoying to have Documents/General occupied, very misleading...

  2. Posted Moved File Handling

    When a file is moved or renamed after it has been uploaded and posted to a channel, the link referenced in the conversation in that channel never gets updated, therefore leaving a broken link with an existing conversation.
    If Teams is intelligent enough to post the file to the channel, and handles the move, it should be able to find and update the posted locations in the channels.

  4. Add options to Copy and Move a file directly from Teams > Files > Views > Recent "context menu (...)"

    See the attached image for the context menu that Copy and Move should be added to.
    With the current UI, I have to manually Browse all the way down through OneDrive to find the file and then use Copy or Move from deep in the folder tree.
    It would be much more efficient / faster to be able to do it directly from the "Recent" View

  5. Shared folders

  6. Ability to Control Document Edit Permissions

    Currently when a document is added to a Team channel, all members of the channel have full edit rights on the document, which could result in documents being modified by too many people. Having the ability to make the file read-only to the channel except for the doc poster, or toggle editability by members of the channel could help doc owners share information without the risk of losing content to zealous editors in the channel.

    Warren responded

    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

  7. allow locking files when editing them

    Allow an option to lock a file when editing.

    In SharePoint there was already this option and it would be great if it could be used also in Teams.

    If you have it as an option that can be activated/deactivated, you could choose wich way to work, allowing both sync editing and excluseve editing.

    Thanks

  9. Copying Files Should add (Copy) suffix or at least allow for a new name

    When I copy a file and the dialog comes up, I was expecting that I could rename the file at least. Or if I just pressed OK, then I would get a copy in that same folder with "Copy" appended to the name. Instead I had to copy that file to a different folder and then rename it and THEN move it back.

  10. Teams doesnt update when editing a doc in word

    When opening a document in Word (locally) and edit the document, then close MS Word application, the Team document is still open and is not visually updated.

    I would suggest you close the team view and revert to the focus you had before opening the document in the MS Word application

  13. Bring cloud storage options inline with other Microsoft apps

    I have a choice of 17 cloud storage locations using the Word app on my iPhone thanks to the Microsoft Cloud Storage Program, yet Teams only offers 5. And other than OneDrive for Business, files are READ ONLY. Normal users want consistency and predictability, both of which are lacking from a Microsoft Teams perspective.

  14. How can I make my default view of files in Share Point show on the Teams App?

    I added files to a channel I created in Teams, I then set a thumbnail view and "set as default view". But when I go into the team channel in the app, the view is shown without thumbnails and since these are images, it would be nice to have the thumbnails shown. How can I make this happen?

  15. PDF files in assignent section in teams not opening

    We're having problem opening PDF files in the assignment section when our students are sending their homework.
    We have to download them on our computer to be able to consult them.
    Is there a workaround or is there a fix so we can consult them as we do with word document ?
    thank you for your support

  17. Show Filepath when adding link to file

    When you post a link to a file in the chat, it would be helpful if the link card showed what folder the file is in.

  18. Make SharePoint links viewable in moble app

    SharePoint links should be viewable in the mobile app. I'm now stuck unable to open a teammate's document because a weblink from teams also won't open. This is just another day of your app completely stopping my productivity. Please streamline the simple workflow of opening a document.

  20. Start a conversation on uploaded image files

    I came across something interesting today. If I upload a pdf to a channel, I can start a conversation on the pdf - perfect! However, if I upload an image to the same channel, I cannot. It would be great to have a conversation on an image that has been uploaded to the files tab of a channel. An in-app preview of the image (mac) would be nice too.
