  1. Allow Specific Sharepoint File or Folder Links in "Add cloud storage" Files Tab Option

    Currently when I add a document (Excel, Word, etc) link (URL) under a channels File tab (which can only be done if I "Open in SharePoint") to another Sharepoint document in a different Teams site (giving appropriate users permissions to access) it tries to open the URL and says it can't preview. The person first has to click the Files tab, click "Open in Sharepoint", then click on the URL link. An alternative to this request is to allow direct file links in the "Add cloud storage" option under the files tab. Right now it gives access to the entire…

  2. Create hyperlinks: the current links in Teams appear horribly unprofessional

    Attaching a document link in a conversation with colleagues often looks horrendous when the links are 8+ lines long. Can we clean this up?

  3. Move Folders

    I wish you can move folders within folder in file management :) Also, recent places would be very helpful.

  4. Adobe InDesign cannot be viewed like other Adobe file types?

    Unlike Photoshop and Illustrator files, InDesign files cannot be viewed in Teams. This is putting a damper on some CTE and district departments from fully adopting TEAMS.

  5. Allow others to edit an event

    We would like the ability to create links within Microsoft Teams like you can in SharePoint.

    Not only this but we would like it so when a user clicks on the link, it opens it, rather then it being a download which then redirects the user.

  7. conversations

    Having a conversation around a document is great - it would be even better if you could incorporate track changes and in-doc comments within the conversation instead of having to reference chagnes within the covo for feedback in the doc.

    Also, pptx docs don't show sections in the slide sorter pane

  9. Allow to open Finder quickly after downloading a file

    When the file is downloaded allow me to quickly open them in Finder / Explorer.

    It is very slow and inefficient to first

    4. navigate to Download folder
    5. find the latest file with Junk in the name added.

  10. alphabetische Sortierung

    Eine alphabetische Sortierung der Datein ist wünschenswert. Die neuesten Dateien immer zuoberst zu sehen ist nicht immer hilfreich.

  12. Submitting files in advance

    I currently work as a teacher in a secondary school as a computing science teacher, unfortunately there was a fire and we have started the students again using Microsoft teams as a method of delivery. While planning lessons I like to stay ahead but am unable to upload lessons and resources too far in advance. I think a nice additional feature for teachers would be the ability to add files and the likes but choose when members are able to access or view it. Such as setting an “available to members: 9/9/18”

  13. Chat

    When sharing a document in teams, sometimes you get the opiotn to chat, which opens right next to the document which is nice but sometimes it's not there and you lose the ability to see the document you are referencing as you are chatting about it.

    Please keep the chat option available consistently.

  15. File Movement

    I would love an option that allows me to move full file folders into other file folders. For example, I'm trying to move all of my marketing campaigns for 2018 into a separate folder. Right now I have to manually move them in MS Teams and it is very time consuming.

  17. Markdown Mermaid and Plant-uml support

    When creating a markdown-diagram with mermaid- or Plant UML-syntax, Teams doesn't provide a preview.
    It would be nice if teams converted the syntax using the open source libraries

  18. Have the ability to open multiple files at the same time, flick between them, make changes, and make it easier to save the updates.

    Have the ability to open multiple files at the same time, flick between them with ease, make changes, and make it easier to save the updates. The present process is clunky, and not slick

  20. Share from OneDrive as view only in a chat

    What you share a file from OneDrive in a private chat they always grant Read/Right permissions. It would be useful to be able to share as Read Only
