  1. Files - Move to "Add a tab" dialogue

    Instead of having the Files tab hardwired to each channel, allow the user to remove the default Files tab and add named file tabs pointing to specific folders within a SharePoint document library. This would enable the user to rename the SharePoint library folder and re-add the file tab to another named library folder (existing request) as well as add additional focused file tabs to the channel for specific folders.

  2. stop the edit mode in Teams Files

    The new way files open in Teams is a big problem. Now when we click on the file in Teams, the Teams edit mode opens as default with no notification that's what's happened. This is a nightmare for our users who benefited from the read-only view and then had to select if and how they wanted to edit the file. This is seriously going to have a negative effect on adoption.

  4. Unique file accounts per user/chat

    If I am sharing a file that has the same filename that I already shared anywhere else in Team - in another chat or team, I am always prompted to say that this file already exists - even though I might not have ever share it in this particular chat. It would be great if I could share same files individually to different users and chats.

  7. Create Team from Windows Explorer

    It would have been fantastic if you could just mark a folder in Windows Explorer and then just press «Create Team» to make a Teams-Team out of it with all the files and structure included in the new Team, You would propably need a plug-in module for the Windows Explorer, but if you could do this, the change from traditional servers archives to Teams would have been super efficient. This operation should make the original folder dissappear from the server of course, so you dont have to deal with double-up archives.

  8. Provide notification/communication in the UI when changes are made to Teams that are not in the road map or announced.

    Provide notification/communication of updated or changes features that aren't published elsewhere. E.G. today's removal of Edit Button within Teams and making editing native when you open a MS application.

  9. Video playback

    Our teams love posting motivational videos throughout the day, but as of right now it posts the file rather than having a key image with a play button and playing the video. I think this would be a great change to make and would help us out a lot after moving from groupme!

  10. Attach file which already exists

    When you try to upload a file to a chat which is already in teams, you get a notification: "This file already exists" with options to "Keep both" or "Replace"

    I want a third option to attach the preexisting file, instead of uploading a new one.

  11. I would like the ability to put a label on a file.

    I often need to upload the same file name (.exe) but the versions are different. I would like the ability to put a label on the file that describes the version # of the .exe. This will allow my end-users to see the version without having to rename the .exe.

  13. Allow admins to decide the site structure resulting from the creation of Team Channels

    I have noticed multiple times since the release of MS Teams that getting a folder inside the default Documents library each time you create a new channel doesn't fit the architectural needs of the site.
    I, as admin, would like to be able to pick from the following 3 structural options when configuring new Teams:
    1. Default behavior, getting a folder inside Shared Documents library for the new Channel.
    2. New document library for the new channel.
    3. New Subsite (with default Shared Documents library) for the new Channel.

    This doesn't have to be too complicated, if the new level…

  14. Allow team owners to restrict the deletion of files by members and guests

    I would appreciate if Team owners could restrict the ability to delete files and folders within channels. Our organization posts training documents to Teams and sometimes our global affiliates need to localize the documents. I would like to restrict the ability to edit or delete the original document and require all users to save a copy in order to edit files.

  18. it would be great if there was a feature to allow the rotation of images within Teams

    Images in the teams app cannot be rotated unless the image is first downloaded. It would be fantastic

  19. Blacklining or comparewrite functionality needed for Team documents

    To be an excellent, or even useable, collaboration tool, the changes made by each team member must be be transparent. Blacklining? Compare?
