  3. Make Teams shows when a file is checked out

    when you look at files in the sharepoint view, the icon changes to show a file is checked out. That "checked out" icon is not available in Teams.

  4. allow viewing of files in zip / archive

    people moving from file systems/shares would benefit from the ability to launch files from a zip archive like they do in windows explorer.

  5. Modify the view for Files Tab

    We use metadata to organize documents instead of placing documents in specific folders since many documents apply to several channels. Folders are very restrictive. Using metadata provides greater flexibility in how users access and view the documents. For example, our Program Operations Team documents have a column for Program, Topic, and Doc Type. We have several views set up to accommodate the various audiences. For example, User A wants to see all of the Program A documents regardless of what the Topic or Doc Type is. User B wants to see all of the Topic XYZ documents regardless of the…

  8. Present Powerpoint from uploaded files

    If I upload a powerpoint presentation to files part of a meeting, It would be nice if that PPTX file was available to present as well, rather than having to re-upload it (and then get an error about a file with the same name already exists)

  9. open files

    When opening a file in Teams, It would be good if the file persisted at least for a little while. If I am working a file via teams and I need to refer to a conversation or Wiki. The file closes and I need to reopen when I switch back.

  10. Allow sync with password manager within Teams (like Keepass/LastPass)

    As the tought of MS Teams is, that you manage all data from a company within Teams we need an Password manager app or connector that could be linked in several TEAMs or Channels which would work with sso. Personally i think we should be able to migrate all our existing Data/Software to Teams. But actually we as company have to get some third party vendors and an external application.

  12. Support for update files/documents

    Instead of deleting and adding an updated files, it would be nice to update files to keep all the comments as well the link to it.

  13. File sync between conversations and files

    It would be great if, when a file is posted in conversations, it automatically shows up under files. Or, if there were a right click to send it to files. Or, if when you posted a file in files, it created an auto message linking to it in conversations.

  14. Won't allow the same file name to be attached to the same Team or chat several times

    Under Teams it won't allow you to save file with the same name more than once in the same TEAM. You have to change the file name. We update the same file several times a day and need to post it on a Team conversation multiple times a day.

  15. "Adding Cloud" is missing

    Although I'm the admin, I'm not able to add a different Could Storage like as Google Drive. It doesn't show me the option.

    I'm using the free version.

  18. Navigation->Files: CONFUSING:displays wrong files in teams (No permissions)

    A user with limited permissions sees files from other teams.

    Navigation option Files ->View is not limited to the documents of that team/office group or user.Not even limited to the group.

    Confusing because the files are displayed but cannot be opened, which is correct.

    BUT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SHOWN in the first place!
    Now it gets the message

    Sorry, we couldn't find your file
    This is absolutely not correct

  20. "Files" functionality is unusable for working OneDrive

    I was excited about using "Files" for working with OneDrive for business. I was hoping that this would provide easy way to work with OneDrive documents right from the Teams.

    Unfortunately , in its current state, I've discovered that it is unusable:
    1. navigate the folder structure ( i.e. go few folders deeper) in my OneDrive a
    2. click on a document
    3. When you close the document , you are returned to the root of the OneDrive instead of expected return to the folder where document is.

    Also, the "Files" do not remember my sort order. I need my…
