  1. Deep links shouldn't contain the entire folder structure

    Deep links shouldn't contain the entire folder hierarchy. I might not want to reveal the details of my hierarchy to someone I am sharing one file with.

  2. Add support for starting flows to the document library/list views in Teams

    When a user clicks on a file in the files tab, they have a number of options they can perform against a file, copy, rename, properties, etc.. If they were in SharePoint they could start a Microsoft Flow against the document. The same experience should exist within Teams. This functionality existed a few weeks ago but appears to have been removed, or is possibly broken.

  3. Sync Files in Teams

    It would be great to have the option to sync team files to your computer directly within Teams. Right now if I want to do this I need to open in Sharepoint (from within Teams) and then tell the files to sync to my computer. This seems like a long, unnecessary step!

  4. Make file preview work for files with an apostrophe somewhere in the file path

    Currently if an apostrophe exists at any point in the file address (name of file, parent folder or Team name) the file can't be previewed.

    In such situations we get a "Hmm... looks like this file doesn't have a preview we can show you." and a Download button is visible.

    This behaviour seems inconsistent given that apostrophes aren't listed as invalid characters for OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint.

  5. flexible frame size for file search results in Teams

    Make the frame width flexible for the file search results in Teams.
    Now it is not possible to see exactly what file one is dealing with when the identifying part of the filename is behind the x-th character. (see screenshot)

  6. Allow the creation of channels for subfolders in the library

    Often we have sub folders in our sharepoint library. We would like to have the possibility to create a channel for such a subfolder, to be able to discuss things around the documents in this subfolder.

  7. Interface for files

    On a pc in legacy world, you Go to your drives and use x for personal y to access shared files.

    In Teams this exists, by going to files on the left hand menu, or clicking on the team and accessing files..

    It would be so much easier if users could go to a simple interface in teams where they see their shared spaces and their own files, and then be able to move files easily between them

    In essence make it as close to the old cut the file from x and paste the file into y as possible...

  8. Cut/Copy Folders between channels

    We need the ability to move, cut, copy entire folders from one team/location to another.

    A teammate removed a channel and consolidated the files from those channels into the incorrect location. We don't have an expedient way to move these files.

  10. Dropbox sharing

    Could be great if the dropbox integration could be used, to share company folders, and not just personal folders.

  11. Drag and drop files from one chat to another.

    Allow drag and drop of files (e.g. .pdf) from one chat to another without saving it to the PC in between.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

  15. '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.
