How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    Agreed, just add the library sync button, right now they have to open in browser, sync, then tell the files to always download (if cloud is default).

    Agreed. A lot of our field team and executives use Teams while traveling and don't always have an internet connection. It's so confusing for basic end users to go to the SharePoint backend doc library, sync there, and somehow get them to understand that they're actually syncing the Teams documents.

    this is a no brainier that will take mere minutes to implement.

    Having implemented Teams across a number of our clients, this is a biggie. Agree with the comments re-synching the channel or the whole Document Library at Root, although if a channel, it should be in the parent folder, so that subsequent syncs of other channels in the same Team stay in context. This is a very confusing issue for users and I'm surprised it has been prioritised.

    Completely agree with this idea. In fact the Sync button should open a dropdown where you can choose whether to sync just the channel files you're in, or the whole Teams library.

    Even better, add a setting to sync files by default as soon as I join a Team.
    We do a lot of work 'on the road', so having local access to files is essential for us.
