  2. Allow 3rd party cloud storage for attachments in chat

    It would be helpful if chats allowed for 3rd party cloud storage solutions (Box, Dropbox, Sharefile, etc) to be used when selecting an attachment. Within Channels, the feature already exists to add a 3rd party cloud storage solution, but it is absent within Chat. The option to either attach or link the document (URL to the file within the 3rd party solution) would be helpful additional functionality.

  3. Allow a pdf to be filled out and saved within the shared space using Teams

    I want to share pdfs with fillable fields in Teams so my staff can open, fill in fields and save the pdf within the Teams file and in the browser (without having to download the file locally).

  4. File rename with viewer

    My company uses Box and one of the strong points, besides ease of use is their viewer.

    As part of our process with scanned documents is the ability to rename the file while in a viewer, and also, to move the file while in the viewer.

    We do this mostly with accounting. We can view a scanned or emailed file and then rename the document including the document date and invoice number. The document is held open in the viewer while it is entered into the accounting system. OCR allows us to capture long account or invoice numbers, as well…

  5. A Combine Function/Button

    I work in a group that does a lot of document editing, comment gathering, and proposing a direction based on feedback on the original doc. Is there a way to combine all comments from various individuals that are made to the same doc to view/edit in Teams? If not, do you think that could be created? I work in a Credit Policy development group where we send the proposed initiative/policy out to a SME (subject matter expert) group for comment, combine them, and consolidate. More than happy to discuss, if necessary. Thanks.

  8. View of all files in a Team

    It would be great if I could see all the files within a team, instead of having to search by channel.

  9. File permission - File Tab, Share Point Tab, Share point, One Drive

    Lack of Permission control when uploading to share point tab from Team.

    This is important, Since everyone in my company use microsoft team to share file.
    Currently,

    We have to juggle different type of file sharing and remembering the way you share your file will result in different outcome.

    For File tab it is sharable and viewable for everyone.

    For the team integrated share-point file tab, all the file uploaded through team is viewable and editable for everyone.

    If we want to control permission we have to click on that open in share point and go upload the file there,…

  10. Allow people on the team to access files

    I invited people to a team to collaborate and access files. When they accept the invitation, they are told that they don't have access to any of the files.

    The only option is owner or member, how about read, or read write, or edit or view. Not very "team" oriented now. Thanks.

  12. In search result : option GO TO channel or folder

    When we find a file in the search, it would be great to have the option to go to the file location and access directly the Channel / folder

    ( like when we download a file on a computer we can open the file or Go to file location)

  15. Attach folder in chat

    We can attach file in chat, but we can't attach folder in chat. So I'd like to attach folder as this pictures.
    And I hope when folder is moved in this channel, this link doesn't be broken.

  16. Open files as Read Only or Open as PDF

    It would be a good idea to have an option where user can Open a File (Word or Excel) either as Read Only or Open as PDF from Teams in order to prevent any accidental editing of a document.

  19. Make shared files available

    When you create a chat and you upload files these are available for the people in the chat, but is someone joins the chat AFTER the files were shared the files are not visible for him/her.

    Example:
    Chat created on 05/06/2019
    3 People added don the same day
    Files uploaded on 07/06/2019 - 3 people can see them.

    2 new members added to the chat on 15/06/2019
    These two new members cannot see the files uploaded on 07/06/2019 but can see files uploaded after they joined.

    If it is a group file will be ideal that all files previously shared…

  20. Shared information thru Teams

    Shared information should not be stored within OneDrive or SharePoint that require or don't require access. A P2P should be simple IM between 2 or more recipients, along with the files between. A Teams Chat should also only store shared info within Teams app and not OD or SP so to alleviate access issues on OneDrive.

    Teams is far from Slack to which it is attempting to be competitive to.
