How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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)

    This is an important feature for us as we already, like many others, have project doc library with individual project folders that we want to access directly. This is slowing down our uptake of MS Teams in our organisation. At least I think we are owed an update about this feature. It has been almost a year. Will this feature ever be implemented?

    So, will this go forward?
    It doesn't make any sense since we have different permissions for folders on the same library.

    Worst of all is when someone doesn't have permission to see one folder, that same person wont see any folder at all on the TAB.

    This is rather critical and obviously already partly implemented since the Files tab itself in a channel maps to a subfolder in the Documents library of the SharePoint site created for the Team itself. PLEASE we really need this.

    Until this is implemented, try adding a website tab and using the URL from the copy link function of the folder in SharePoint. YMMV

    This is such a basic important function for most business processes its kind of amazing its not available. For example, if I have a document library full of folders named after projects it only makes sense to tab the specif project folder rather than having the user hunt and peck through irrelevant folders to find their project folder. Same reason we have favorites and links for the internet.

    Agree - thought it would be possible to get all job workflow under Microsoft Teams.

    However, it's impossible.

    The main problems are
    * no subfolder tabs to Sharepoint
    * no simple hierarchical projects
    * files scattering different places

    We need simple shortcuts to take us straight to important project file areas.

    Decluttering of Teams area so we can prioritise and clarify workflow,

    Ability to set bespoke useful shortcuts in the top and left navigations.

    Trying to explain to a new employee where to navigate to is brain-curdling.

    Asana in Teams is useless because it stops having sub-tasks.

    So I still haven't found a usable workflow.

    Teams really doesn't work for workflow management as it stands. It's horribly messy and unintuitive.

    With just those changes, it could be a game-changer.

    Please bring this forward!

    My organization is looking to migrate our L&D team course materials to SharePoint. We want to be able to share out project subfolders with our SMEs and instructors for course maintenance and revision *without* giving them access to the entire SP document library. It is important to us that we restrict consultant and instructor access to the project subfolders *only*. However, we do not want to have master files on SP and project-specific files on Teams.

    Please give Teams the ability to use a SP subfolder as the main Teams file repository. Otherwise maintaining file version control will be too cumbersome and our team will resist adopting this solution. This request is almost two years old, pretty basic, but remains unaddressed. What gives?

    Teams is not really particularly helpful without this feature. It is the reason my organisation has decided to stop using teams. It has been an issue for a number of years. How is it possible that the first and most basic requirement of a Team area (to point to the project files) has been missed. It would be like designing a car with no steering wheel. Useless.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please prioritize this, it's really hindering our ability to migrate onto Teams/SP.

  • Sheradyn Ford commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please make this a priority. From all the digging around this is critical for multiple companies/business users.
