  1. Let Customers choose where to store files in Teams

    Teams currently does not allow customers to choose and restrict where all files uploaded by users are stored. The native paperclip tool, files tab, and drag-and-drop all route to OneDrive and SharePoint; these cannot be turned off. Companies like mine need the ability to ensure that users put all files into a different cloud storage platform already integrated with Teams (such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Egnyte). This confusing UX and risk of data leakage hurts our ability to govern content throughout our company the way we want. Please empower admins with the ability to standardize on Teams for…

  2. Add/Edit Metadata within the Teams File Tab

    In the new file experience rolling out, metadata can be surfaced now within the files tab, however, you can't add or edit metadata within the Files Tab itself - you have to do it in SharePoint. You can set default values when uploading files but this is problematic if you have multiple choices (A good example being the column Department where several departments upload files to a single team)

  4. Hide Onedrive/Sharepoint from Teams UI when using other content solutions like Box

    We use Box as our organization's cloud storage and do not use Sharepoint or OneDrive. Given that the Teams app allows integration with Box, we would like to be able to hide OneDrive and Sharepoint from Teams

  5. Section for Archiving Older Assignments

    Develop a section for archiving assignments so that when the list of assignments becomes long / assignments become old, teachers can choose the option to "Archive." This function should remove the assignment from students' view of assignments to work on, but will allow the teacher to still access "Turned In" student work / provide feedback / have the option to edit/re-activate the assignments if necessary.

  7. Delete files shared in chat

    Files shared in Chat are stored to OneDrive, but there is no way to delete file from within Teams. When file is deleted from OneDrive, it is (of course) no longer available and the individual gets a "Sorry, we couldn't find you file" error.

    I would like to remove the shared file entry from the Teams chat.

    In Microsoft Teams, currently, it is possible to export the lists of teams from Windows PowerShell to CSV files, but it is impossible to do from the GUI.
    If we can't connect to PowerShell due to our organization's network settings, we can’t retrieve lists of teams. Therefore, we would request a functionality to export the lists of teams from Microsoft Teams administration center to CSV…

  11. Please implement a setting to completely disable the sharing feature for Microsoft Teams

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams から共有機能を完全にオフにできる機能を設定してほしい。
    Please implement a setting to completely disable the sharing feature for Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在は Microsoft Teams において共有機能を制限すると、OneDrive for Business や SharePoint を使った共有ができなくなる。それを避けて、 Microsoft Teams はスケジュール共有や個人、またはチーム内のメッセージングのみとし、外部のクラウド ストレージとの連携含め、 Microsoft Teams 上でのファイル共有を一切できないようなオプションを希望する。
    なお、このオプションが有効であっても、SharePoint サイトや、テナントユーザーの OneDrive for Business は利用できるような設定にしてもらいたい。
    Currently if the sharing feature for Microsoft Teams is restricted, sharing for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint cannot be done. We want to avoid that, and thus hope for an option where only features such as schedule sharing, personal or in-team messaging can be done in Microsoft Teams, and completely prevent any sort of file sharing on…

  12. Class Materials folder access on mobile app - both Android and iOS

    At present, the automatically created 'Class Materials' folder, and any other linked folder or special folder in a Teams files tab is not available through the mobile app for Android or iOS.

    This presents a problem for teachers posting class materials, as students can't access them on the device they are most likely to use - mobile phone.

    We'd like to see all content in the files tab available through the Android and iOS mobile app, specifically and most importantly for us, the 'Class Materials' folder.

    The 'Class Materials' folder provides essential functionality for a teacher to share resources that…

  13. Allow the addition of URLs to the files tab in MS Team Groups

    Its great to have the ability to store files in MS Teams groups but what about URLs?

    At the moment the only way I can see to do this would be to create a file containing URLs for online documentation or to paste it in the team chat where it will get buried.

    Perhaps Files should be renamed to resources too?

  14. Egnyte Cloud Storage edit files

    We have the ability to add Egnyte as a cloud storage provider now and this adds the Egnyte folders to the Files tab. But they are read only. I talked to Egnyte support about this and apparently it is a limitation from MS Teams not their side. Can we have the ability to edit files in the Files tab with Egnyte storage please.

  17. Minimize/maximize Excel files on Teams

    Minimize/maximize Excel files on Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams アプリ上で Excel 等のファイルを開いた際に、Excel クライアント アプリケーションのように拡大・縮小表示することができない。
    Teams 画面全体の拡大・縮小表示は可能だが、Excel ファイルのみを拡大・縮小表示することができないため、ファイルのみ表示倍率を変更する機能の実装を要望します。
    It is currently not possible to minimize/maximize files such as Excel files opened in the Teams app in the same way as is possible in the client app.
    It is possible to minimize/maximize the Teams screen in its entirety, but since just the Excel etc. file view cannot be minimized/maximized, we would like such a function, where the amount of the screen taken up by just the file view can be changed, to be added.
