  1. Upload files into directly into folders in Teams on iOS app

    A requested feature in Teams on iOS device is the ability to upload files directly to folders in Teams. At this time, you may upload files in the conversation tab, but it will be uploaded directly in the root of the team. In what I request, you should be able to access the Teams file archive, go to the folder where you want to upload the file and then upload.

    The picture shows where I'd love to have an "attach a file"-button.

    • Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

      Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

      This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

      • URL shortener for Teams

        When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

        • Timecode comments on videos

          We are already allowed to comment on files, but it would be great if we could be taken to a specific frame when we comment on video files.
          This function exists in solutions like frame.io, wipster and vimeo video review.

          We're migrating everything to teams and planner so this one function would great for us.

          • Ability to open multiple documents

            Currently If I am editing a File in Teams, and if I have to refer another file present in Teams, I have to forcefully close existing document and go to the next file. It will be a nice to have feature if I can open other documents in Preview mode if I am editing a document.

            • Teams Live Events - download file feature

              want to have a feature that allows attendees to download a file that a producer uploaded.

              When we deliver a presentation, we want to share the PDF/PPT with the audience. Currently, Live Events (or formerly Skype Broadcast) doesn't have a "download file" feature, we need to setup a separate method

              • Dynamic links to files in conversations

                I want links to files in a conversation to be dynamic. If we move a file to a folder, the link will no longer work as it is today. Can you make that work?

                • Move Folders

                  I wish you can move folders within folder in file management :) Also, recent places would be very helpful.

                  • 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.

                    • Upload more than 10 files at once

                      Why limit file uploads to just 10 at one time, it limits us getting a user to move their legacy data over to Teams.

                        • Hyperlinks for servers/network drives

                          When I post a link to an internal page/file, or a network location it does not turn into a hyperlink - the edit dialog displays "invalid URL".
                          Please disable URL checks to allow any sort of hyperlink - just like in Outlook.

                          • Print from within Microsoft Teams

                            Would it be nicer if there was an option allowing someone to print an image, pdf, docx file from withing Teams instead of having to download it first and then print it?

                              Currently files are downloaded only to the DOWNLOAD folder. Allow a save as function / select download location.

                              • Allow drag and drop from Outlook directly to Teams

                                Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.

                                There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.

                                  It would save a ton of time if a file / folder could be dragged from my computer to a Task within Teams.

                                    • Allow sync with password manager within Teams (like Keepass/LastPass)

                                      As the tought of MS Teams is, that you manage all data from a company within Teams we need an Password manager app or connector that could be linked in several TEAMs or Channels which would work with sso. Personally i think we should be able to migrate all our existing Data/Software to Teams. But actually we as company have to get some third party vendors and an external application.

                                      • Teams Files Cloud Storage Availbale on Mobile

                                        From within my Team, in my Files area, I have the option to add cloud storage. I can then see this from Teams in the desktop Teams client and from web client, however I am not able to see this additional cloud storage when accessing from my iPhone or iPad Teams app.

                                        • Share files in private chat without OneDrive

                                          We aren't currently using OneDrive so not being able to share files in private chats is a major blocker for our Teams adoption. It would be very useful to have an alternative to OneDrive for sharing files in these kinds of chats, so that our users aren't forced to revert to email while we move them onto OneDrive.
