  1. Allow Teams & SharePoint Files to Communicate

    Would like for it to be possible to add a SP file to Teams, make modifications to that file, and have those changes reflected and saved to the file in SP as a version rather than having a file stored in SP and a file stored in Teams that don't communicate with each other.

  4. Allow WEBDAV access to private file stores such as Synology, Nextcloud, Owncloud, etc.

    Consider allowance of private file stores that you could add to a team or channel. Examples of private filestores include Synology, Nextcloud, Owncloud or others using WEBDAV or other protocols. This would be enabled through the Admin interface. OneDrive doesn't have "team" like capability.

  8. Add a "Under Review = Draft" Tab for the Task Planner

    Adding a Draft/Under Review option could help alert those sign to a task or monitoring tasks to see what stage the project is on. In progress is a pretty broad category and could not indicate how far the task is along.

  10. Copy-Paste a file by Ctrl+C -> Ctrl+V

    Like in almost ALL Windows apps, also in the Teams app, the good-old universal "Ctrl+C -> Ctrl+V" keyboard feature should be introduced to copy-paste files!

  12. iPad google

    When in the iPad Teams App, the Google Drive type files will not appear. I bought my iPad Pro to use it instead my laptop... The App should be more like the desktop version and less like the iPhone version.

  15. Browsing within TEAMS on folders and files.

    Browsing within TEAMS on folders and files, has to be simplified more intuitively and user-friendly, as moving from one folder to another or moving from file to file is not very simple and intuitive.

    There must be a feature to lock/unlock edit option for a particular file/document.

  18. 1 linked in document in multiple team site locations

    Ability to have a single document linked so if you have 2 or more different stakeholder groups you only have to update 1 doc instead of managing 3 different teams with the document constantly.

    In a folder inside of Teams you cannot trust in sort structure, especially by name. Please add a sort structure because users needs to sort by name to find some their clients.
