  1. Add the SCAN feature from Office Lens and OneDrive to Channels

    Currently to scan a document, a person has to
    1) Open OneDrive
    2) Click Sites
    3) Click the Team
    4) Click Documents
    5) Click the Channel (actually just a folder in the team site document library)
    6) Click the + sign (Upload)
    7) Click Scan

    the workflow should be
    1) One Teams
    2) Click Team
    3) Click Scan or Click Files > Scan

  2. Can't send in-chat images using MAC desktop app

    I'm trying to share an image in-chat using the MAC desktop app. Each time I do, it gives me the insecure image error message (see attached). The only way to see it is to go to the files tab within the same chat, click on the file, which then takes me into a browser to view. Any idea of how to get around this so I can just share images within the chat window? Thanks!

  3. sending files in teams to email recipients

    Files already in teams need to be sent to external users via email for their use. Send either as attachment or link to a ondrive folder that they can get to without 1000 hoops . Every time I try to share via a link the receiver cannot open it and i end up doing it the old fashioned way.

  4. Better sending of files between team and personal OneDrives.

    It would be awesome to be able to send files from my personal OneDrive (in the Files section) to one of the team drives.

    When you right click it could say "Send to team...". If you click on it, it will pop out a list of your teams. You select a team, and it pops up with a dialogue similar to the Share File dialogue in chat to choose where to save it.

    Additionally, in the Team > Channel > Files tab, there could be a Add File from My OneDrive, that pops up with a Dialogue similar to the…

  5. File version summary showing that a file has changed, new updates, who changed files, conversations about content, etc

    We are using teams to collaborate on files. Is is possible to be able to see when files are changed or the review process has been undertaken. For instance, if I upload a file and need someone to review the file, I would need to tag the person but I don't have a common view of this.

    Can I get notifications when a file has been changed?

  7. Shorten Default "Files" URL from "Shared Documents" to "Docs"

    This suggestion actually affects the underlying SharePoint service in addition to Teams.

    The underlying URL for the default "Documents" document library in SharePoint is "Shared Documents", which in a URL is actually "Shared%20Documents" as spaces cannot exist in URLs and must be handled with the %20 character substitution.

    This means that instead of being able to send a nice clean human readable URL to a file like:
    https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Docs/Collateral/design.docx

    We end up with:
    https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Shared%20Documents/Collateral/design.docx

    This is confusing for users.

    I would even go so far as to request that every time a user attempts to create a folder or file name…

  10. Posted Moved File Handling

    When a file is moved or renamed after it has been uploaded and posted to a channel, the link referenced in the conversation in that channel never gets updated, therefore leaving a broken link with an existing conversation.
    If Teams is intelligent enough to post the file to the channel, and handles the move, it should be able to find and update the posted locations in the channels.

  11. Save & share documents with Onedrive in Teams! Sharepoint must be merge it!

    I think we must make Teams more user friendly, the sharepoint must be closed because we don’t need it! We have Onedrive to save documents and we can share it with Teams ! i understand not why you bringing many the same functions! You must Merge same functionalty to make it smaller and userfrindly! Then you must make, that we can share channls with different users. Because expamle: if we have a Marketing Division (Team), i don’t want that all users or certain users can see certain documents.

  13. Enable sizing of file/library columns

    The Files tab (a SharePoint File Library) has the file name as a first column. It's size is fixed, so long file names are "truncated". All we need is to be able to expand the column, so the names fit.

    A mouse over with the full name would also be appreciated.

  14. Live links

    Links from file to file! One of the advantages we find in Quip, other than the docs are live, is that users can can link from one doc to other; a little like mentions. once Office docs can be created, edited and shared on Teams this will really unify the experience for us.

  15. Add "Sync button"

    Add "Sync button" - In the app there is a "sharepoint" button. I suggest you add a button to directly start syncing the "file/sharepoint/group library". It takes to many clicks to start syncing files localy to computer with current functions.

  16. Upload a file to Teams directly from a desktop Office application

    When I am creating a new file in an Office document I want there to be an option in the "Save as" location, to save to an Microsoft Team, similar to how there are options to save to your OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and This PC locations. Right now I either have to remember to create the file from Teams or to create the file on my PC and then upload it manually to Teams.

  18. Select Default File Repositiry

    As most companies already have an established File Repository either in O365, NAS or other cloud storage and cant afford to have users putting files in different locations due to confusion, allow the Team owner upon creation to specify a location for Files and use this location as the default when doing attachments and links.

  20. Share a single file from Sharepoint

    I can share a single file from Sharepoint with the team but it does not appear in Teams. Instead I have to share a whole library - not very handy.
