  1. Make files or folders in a channel temporary invisible

    When there’s an online test, I’d like to set some files or folders temporary invisible without removing them. For example with an icon “eye open”, “eye shut”. I want to keep the files in the channel, but I often don’t want my students to be able to open them during a test.

  2. Displaying Download % or Download bar

    Adding a download bar so as to check % of the file downloaded and the amount of time to wait for the file to finish download. This helps while downloading large files for which people have to wait for a lot of time

  4. Adding shared drives in Teams as files repositories just like we can do with SharePoint

    Currently, my team is storing files in three different places: SharePoint, Teams, and shared drives. It would be great having the possibility to add our shared drives in Teams Apps as a file repository, the same way we can do with SharePoint repositories.

  5. One File to rule them all

    Request: a possibility like with Symlink or mklink to create a File under the General Channel and use than links in all other Channels which are referring to this file without creating a copy of it. So this Masterfile is only stored in one location in this Team.

  9. Teams needs an "Account" page

    Teams needs an "Account" page similar to that found in other Office 365 apps: Word, Excel, etc., showing how the user is logged in. My organization was purchased by a larger company, and we've gone through a protracted (years) process of migration of email accounts, logins, etc. I have multiple identities, and I need all the help I can get figuring out how I'm logged in.

  10. Files sharing available 1-on-1 too

    Hi,

    It would be very helpful if file sharing would be available in chats with only two people involved.

    Additionally, it would be very useful to find these files at any time after sharing.

    Thanks you,
    Carmen

  11. Change default file behavior Editing/Reviewing

    Would be great to be able to change the default opening behaviour for files on an adhoc basis.

    Excel files currently open in editing mode, having the ability to change it to open in vieweing mode by default for anyone who opens it will prevent users accidentally editing the file unless its intentional.

    Implementing this to all office files would be amazing.

  12. Add a context menu to synced files

    Background:
    After syncing files to the local machine, they are accessible in Windows Explorer. This is critical because navigating files within the Teams interface is terribly clunky.

    Problem:
    When navigating a synced folder in Explorer, certain commands are not available. Namely, copying the file location and sharing the link to someone else. and deleting folders (after deleting in the synced folder they remain in Teams).

    Suggestion:
    Add a context menu upon right click for synced files/folders from Explorer to allow these operations and more.

    Thank you.

  13. Save/Export Word/Excel/PPT files as PDF directly to Teams

    Ability to save/export files as a PDF directly to Teams/Cloud/Sharepoint/etc. and not your computer. Right now you have to go to the file in Teams, save as PDF, it saves the PDF to your computer, then you have to upload the PDF to teams. It should just save directly in Teams.

  15. Files - Downloads Management

    Somehow the Downloads in the files section got neglected. What about:


    1. Provide the option for renaming files, example all videos downloaded will be Video, Video(1), Video(2). A rename option will work wonders for post download, because opening the folder and renaming there breaks the link to the file.

    2. What about setting the location for a folder of your choice. All the files go to the default Downloads folder.

    3. Can we add more download locations to have more options or to move files between download locations?

    4. Possibly allow the file to be moved to Cloud Storage locations?

  17. Stop sync and remove local files

    If I close or archive a team, it would be great if synchronizing files from that team could be stopped and local synchronized files securely removed.

    Maybe only by owners, when done centrally for all users.

    New button to turn off Sync, replacing Synch-button, when Sync is turned on. [Synchronize on/off]. When turned off, all local synched files should securely be removed from local disc.

  19. Hide/Show files sequencially as per course/chapter

    I would like to suggest the possibility of hiding files or folders in the Files section of a Team, the same as happens with Teams that can be hidden.

    This way, once I finish my school year with my students, I can "empty"
    my Team of students and hide all the files that I shared with them during the year..

    I will enroll my new students after summer, but I don´t want my students to see all those files at once and from the beginning, so the teacher will be disclosing them as we move forward in the school year.
