  1. Improving Screen Sharing Feature on IPad

    Hi, I am using this great app on my I pad, It offers very limited screen sharing options and unlike using the app from a laptop, where wider sharing option is available.
    Appreciate if you could enable the wider sharing feature on IPad for better customer experience.

  2. During file sharing, now it is not possible to see the user what he is sharing. There must be a option to view the user what he is haring.

  3. open with explorer in edge

    In Microsoft edge you are unable to open files with explorer. This feature is available in internet explorer but our organisation have moved over to edge now so we miss this functionality

  6. Share a 'View Only' File

    It would be great to have the ability to send a share only version of a file so that someone can view the file but cannot make changes.

  7. Ability to hit SEND while a file is uploading to chat

    Oftentimes I find I have added a file to a chat only to realize it was never sent. The workflow is such that you need to wait for a file(s) to upload before you can hit send.

  8. Display Teams document libraries/tabs on Sharepoint Intranet

    Our corporate intranet is where we want all employees to get company information, branding assets, etc. Files and libraries created in Teams need to be surfaced to our company intranet.

    For example, our marketing team may have all their assets stored in a doc library (right now these are stored in a Sharepoint Library.) It would be best if these were stored in a Teams doc library and then select folder in the Teams channel could be synced to a generally accessible folder on our intranet.

  9. Searching file contents: .PDF, .DOCX, etc

    At the moment when I open files, I cannot search the contents of the file. My organization uses the Teams app in iOS to share documents, especially reference documents, product lists, catalogs, etc. These are often in PDF format. Being able to search the contents of the file would speed things up significantly when I am searching for product information.

  10. When creating / building a flow

    When creating / building a flow would be nice to have the ability to freeze out certain steps to make troubleshooting and developing more efficient. Right now you have to delete your step but if you still wanted the step would have to recreate it later. When you have a bunch of active teams you are working with you don't really want to be having a bunch of test messages(if that was a step you had) being posted to distract those that may be using the team until the rest of the flow is working.

  12. Focused conversations on Photos

    When a photo is posted to a group or chat, add the ability to comment on that photo, this provides focused conversations on that photo. Both Kazala and Slack have this ability, I believe that Slack has the ability to produce a focused conversation on any comment also but this could be stage two.

  15. India kids problem-Files shared in Teams to be available in onedrive

    Currently we r in lockdown in India and student classes in India are conducted over MS Teams. Many of indians have old systems which are not compatible with MS Teams. Parents r somehow managing their kids to attend the classes on MS teams through Android devices /iPhone etc. The big problem is accessing files shared through "files" Section by teachera in teams. We can't do it in our Android phones because of heavy file size etc. Our old laptops cant download MS Teams because of compatibility issues. Can you please help to have files shared by teaches in teams available…

  16. In Chat/Files is ther a way to add the column "last modified date/time"?

    Currently in chat/Files one can see file type, file Name, date shared, and Sent By. It would be nice to also see when the file was last modified, that way you know if someone is working on it or not.

  17. Alert if new version has been uploaded

    We are co-authoring on documents, filling in a number of questions. However, we had a case where somebody took the document offline, then re-uploaded the file and in the process overwrote other responses.
    It would be really useful if you could lock a file so it still can be modified within Teams but uploading would either create a document with a new name or at least would alert (tag the document in some way) that a new version was uploaded at some stage.

  18. When opening Files of same file type (jpg) allow an album type view

    When viewing a group of photos from the files view, there is no ability to quickly go to the next photo easily. A user has to close the file and open another. Would like to have a new File group type for photos titled Album, that when opened you can scroll through images easily without having to close the file and then open the next one, and potentially even have an album view.

  19. Making File Moving Easier

    If I create a folder, and I go to move a file into that folder, when I go to move the file, the folder I just created is never listed in the recent option. If someone performs that action (folder creation and next action is attempting to move a file), I'm willing to bet more than 80% of the time, that person is moving the file into the folder they just created. Please add the recently created folders into the recent section when you go to move a file.

  20. Picture preview.


    1. Improve picture preview no matter where they are (in chat room or file). I think many people want to view next or previous picture with left and right button like they open picture with some photo viewer.
