  1. 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.

    • Have the download function of files allow you to select the destination

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

      • 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)

        • Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

          It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

          Rest of teams is awesome.

          • File column sort order

            Make column sort order "sticky" so that if I prefer to sort my files by Name instead of Last Accessed, Team will remember my preference within a Team

            • Make it possible to remove and/or rename the default tabs (files & notes)

              It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename the default tabs. A lot of times files / notes are too generic names for the tabs, so renaming would be really helpful then. :-)

                • Allow syncing of team files with OneDrive Sync Client

                  I have an Office 365 Group Created and syncing with OneDrive Sync Client. I added team features to the group. When I create a new channel in my team, a new folder is created in the group files. However, this folder is locked (and shows lock in the sync icon) so I don't have permission to work with any synced files.

                  • Links/attachments in chat

                    If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

                    • Tag Files for Searchability

                      As we upload files, it would be great to have the option to add Tags for the files. That way, when utilizing search, we could enter tags to be able to find results based on the tags specified.

                        While you are currently able to hyperlink to any https:// address, hyperlinks to \\-mapped drives does not work. having the ability to do this would be a huge help for a company that has a sophisticated network drive setup for everyone to access

                        • 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.

                          • Make saved Outlook attachments visible to Teams

                            Saving email attachments to a team Sharepoint site (Outlook 2016, Save to Onedrive, Group files) leaves them hidden from Teams. This is because the attachments are saved to the team's Sharepoint main folder, which is not associated with a channel. This is confusing to the user, who wonders why the files do not appear in Teams. The user has to know to open Sharepoint and manually relocate the attachments to the desired channel after saving them.

                            One solution would be to expose channels in Outlook 2016, so the user can select the channel where the files should be saved.

                            Another…

                                  When I am creating a new file in an Office document I want there to be an option in the "Save as" location, to save to an Microsoft Team, similar to how there are options to save to your OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and This PC locations. Right now I either have to remember to create the file from Teams or to create the file on my PC and then upload it manually to Teams.

                                  • Move channel folders to Teams folder

                                    The foldere that contain the files for each channel are stored in the main Documents library of the SharePoint site. This can be confusing as to what documents are part of the Teams channels and what are just on SharePoint. Please move the channel file folders into a "Teams" folder, so that all files from Teams are together and easy to identify.

                                      This feature request has been declined by the feature team. However, the feature team is working on design changes to better help differentiate Teams files.
                                      Which hopefully will help alleviate the confusion users are experiencing when when trying to identify SharePoint files versus Teams files.

                                    • Drag and Drop Folder

                                      Drag and Drop Folder: currently (2017-04-10) when dragging and dropping a folder from my harddrive to a team Files location the files are copied, but the folder is not. Have to first create the folder on Teams, then copy the files into the folder. Would prefer to drag and drop the fold and Teams will automatically create the folder and copy the files within it to that folder.

                                        It would be nice if we can add Visio document also as a new tab.

                                        • Provide option for storing version history for Team files

                                          SharePoint can store file version history. Since Team files are stored in SharePoint, please surface the version history within Teams.
