  3. Cell phone mobile protection or option to not load teams through app when away from office

    Looking for a solution for protecting team files from loading on mobile cell phones. Right now all teams and group files are loaded which could be a security risk. Such as when you are using your cell phone, but you walk into the office open your laptop - which is seen as mobile and has the app installed could access the files. Does this already exist? I have searched. Can the user control this or is it a deeper Admin function?

  4. assignments export

    When I export the assignment report for a class there is no information about assignments of students which are not turned in or with a delay. Neither the date of the assignment is shown.
    So I have to ride down a note in every single feedback box.
    Please add the information "turned in"/ "not turned in"/ "delayed" and the dates to the export file.

  6. Allow "Browse Teams and Channels" option for Private or Group Chat attachments (link to Sharepoint docs)

    When chatting using Team Channels, we can 'attach' a shared document by selecting "Browse Teams and Channels," which streamlines document management. However, that same option does not exist in private or group chats, which makes everything so messy! We need that same option to collaborate ond documents in an organized way, avoiding proliferation of versions.

  7. Condivisione farraginosa

    Far Modificare un file Excel da 30 persone con versioni differenti, e con devices differenti sta diventando lento e farraginoso.
    La risoluzione sta nel problema che ho esposto.

  9. Embed teacher feedback onto student work within assignments

    Sometimes students want to print off their assignments and it would be great if the grade and the feedback I give them from the Review area could be embedded onto their work if they print it off

  10. Add a Recordings icon to the sidebar.

    I'd love to see a Recordings icon/tab in the sidebar that functions like the Files tab, where all your recordings could be stored together for easy access. Currently, I have to do quite a bit of digging to get to recordings of past meetings.

  11. Sending files from teams via outlook

    It would be good to have a function for sending files from teams directly to outlook. for example right click on file and send via outlook.

  12. Same file used in two channels

    We have two different channels that need to view and edit the same masterfile. Is it possible to have both channels containing the masterfile? Without copying the file manually to each channel.

    Easy to do when it is one file, but there are many files which both channels share!

    E.g.

    Channel A - Masterfile 2019
    Channel B - Masterfile 2019

  13. Enable editing function of files which stored in the cloud storage

    We can’t edit files which added to the cloud storage such as Box due to the current limitation. It can be opened as read-only mode. It would be great if I could edit those files by opening them from the Files section in the left side pane in Teams.

  16. Support for playing video files from Files

    We record short video files (for instance from a smartphone) and store it in the Files tab in a channel. The problem is that the files are not playable directly in teams.
    For instance, to view a .mov-file it requires download to PC or device (or upload to YouTube or Stream) in order to view it.
    That is way too cumbersome.

    To keep up as an innovative app, locally stored video files should be playable directly in the Teams app (both desktop and iOS/Android.)

  18. Thumbnail view in Files Tab

    Allow for choice of thumbnail display in files tab. Having to download and open each image individually is very time consuming.

  19. open PBIX (PowerBI) files in PowerBI desktop (similar to Excel)

    Teams is super powerful as the one place to keep your files and remove the danger of versioning problems.

    However - to collaborate on PBIX files in teams means you need to copy the sharepoint link and paste that into the PBI/Desktop Open dialogue.

    That is sub-optimal to say the least. How tricky is it to enable a click on PBIX to open in desktop automatically?

    Thanks guys!
