  1. Please make file sending in MS teams faster and simpler via drag and drop on chat window not on reply window

    Please make files sending in MS teams faster and simpler via drag and drop on chat window and not on reply window. Our users have been encountering issue on this aspect. Also, hope we can remove the REPLACE file window prompt as it creates another friction instead of just smoothly sending files.

  2. Channel templates

    It would be nice to have a template for the Files section in Channels. Define your directory structure once, then apply it to every new Channel created in a Team.

  3. Show Files listing with a real (absolute) timestamp, and with the correct "Modified By"

    "Yesterday", "1h ago", etc isn't so helpful. I know I downloaded something at 15:47 PM. Is the file on teams newer than this? I either need to go through the forensics of file comparisons to answer this, or interrupt the person who uploaded it to ask them -- if I can figure out who actually uploaded it, in contrast to the person indicated in the GUI.

    (Using Desktop -- can't find anywhere to determine the version).

  4. 'Use Existing File'

    When I copy and paste a file to send in a chat, it uploads that file and then once it has finished uploading I can send it.

    I then go to send that same file to someone else, again I copy and paste/drag it from my local files. I then get a warning telling me that the file already exists and my options are to: cancel, keep both or replace it. Where is the option to Use Existing?

    It would be nice to be able to click on a file in the files folder and be redirected to the channel, when the file was uploaded.
    Then you could see why it was uploaded and what was discussed regarding this file.

    Please improve image Management. When I upload multiple photos or send them in chat, the other one has to click each photo and download each ONE. When previewing, you should be able to click on the next photo. You should be able to download all the photos at Once. Thx

  13. Opening multiple files in tabs?

    Would love to be able to open files in tabs or new pop-out windows. Currently working on a PPT storyboard in tandem with an Excel sheet, and I can't keep them both open to cross-reference. I have to download one, which means I can't change the team file in real time.

  14. download all files at once in a chat

    We should be able to download all files at once in a chat message, instead of having to download them one at a time.

  15. Save documents directly into Channels/Teams

    Need to be able to browse Teams and channels that I'm a member of from the Save As menu.

    I have favourited many channels that I need visibility of and have followed a large number of sites and channels, however there is no option to view them all when trying to save to a SharePoint site. At the moment I have to save to desktop and then upload them to the required Channel

    Not such an issue from 3rd party products (although desirable) but to not be able to do this from Office is bizarre. I don't want Word to…

  19. File forwarding from chat - Microsoft Teams Chat Files does not grant permissions

    Forwarding a file from within Teams chat does not add permissions to the OneDrive share for the user to which the file is being forwarded to.

    When User A is chatting with User B on Teams chat and a file is added to the conversation, if forwarding the file from that same chat to another user the file cannot be opened by the user to which the file is being forwarded to.
    What happens is that it is actually forwarding the message to another user and when this one tries to pen the file he is not allowed to do…
