      • Additional cloud storage options and linking

        Companies often use multiple cloud storage options. Expanding the available options would be a huge benefit.

        Suggested options to add are:

        Egnyte Cloud Storage (http://egnyte.com/)
        Adobe Creative Cloud
        OneDrive
        NetDocuments

        • Add a Print feature to the PDF file viewer

          Currently when you click on a PDF within teams it displays it in teams' built-in PDF viewer - but there is no option to print from here.

          To print you either have to download the file and open it in an external PDF viewer application or click 'open online' and print it from your browser. (or open the sharepoint in file explorer...)

          It would be great if a 'Print' button could instead be added to the PDF file viewer taskbar (see attached artists' rendition). Printing a PDF is a staple everyday task performed by countless people around the world.

          • Adding more than 20 files is not possible

            When adding more than 20 files at the same time you get a message that maximum is 20. Should me more or limitation to size instead.

            • Allow opening of PDF documents directly into Adobe Reader DC for Editing docuemnts stored in SharePoint

              Adobe Reader DC can Check-Out and Edit documents directly from SharePoint, but there's no way to initiate this from Teams. Instead you need to go to SharePoint, copy the link, and then open Reader DC, File, Open, and paste the link. This is cumbersome and time consuming for users who frequently edit PDF documents which are stored in Teams (SharePoint).

              We would like a one-click to open in Reader DC from within Teams and an option to make this the default single-click behaviour.

              Hopefully Microsoft's recent partnership with Adobe will help this one along.

              • Share a single file from Sharepoint

                I can share a single file from Sharepoint with the team but it does not appear in Teams. Instead I have to share a whole library - not very handy.

                • 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.

                  • moving a document breaks link

                    When we are sorting out our filing system in files, creating new folders to move and tidy up our document's this changes the location of the document and breaks any links you have previously sent to users also the link in the conversations. This is extremely unworkable for our organisation, we need to be able to upload and move documents. keeping the integrity of any previous links sent. For example if you attach a document to a channel, this does not go into a folder it just sits in files, when links are sent round for this document they are…

                    • Deeper Folders

                      Hello,

                      It would be great if Teams could make it quicker to access deep folder structures inside of the "Files" tab. A couple of ideas would be

                      1. Being able to make a Tab at the top that shows a specific folder in the Teams directory

                      2. Being able to create a shortcut of sorts in the Files tab that would open the deeper folder and not leave the Files tab.

                      BTW, Big fan of Teams!

                      Thanks,
                      Jordan

                      • SharePoint tabs should include ability to show folders and views

                        The SharePoint tab is extremely limited, being able to only show a whole library. It needs to be able to show folders, and/or be configured to show views of a library. Especially for organisations using metadata to shape views, so relevant portions of centralised resources can be displayed in a Teams tab.

                          • Connect General Channel to all root folders in SharePoint Site

                            A little nuance when creating a Team from an existing group is that the SharePoint files which were associated with that group are not available immediately. This is due to the fact that each Channel creates a folder in the document library so the 'General' channel creates an empty folder called 'General'. To get existing files into the Team you have to create Channels with the same name as the root level SharePoint folders.

                            This is pretty confusing for our users and takes significant time / creates a lot of unnecessary channels when people have a lot of root folders.

                              Please add the ability to start a conversation around non-office files (although, Visio, Project are also left out). Users now have to "post a link" to the Files file in a conversation rather than initiating it right from the file.

                              • 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.

                                  • Easier way to view photos

                                    Right now I have a folder in my Files tab with a bunch of photos. The only way to view those photos is to open the folder in sharepoint, then view each photo one by one. I can at least easily click from one to the next, however if I'm trying to find a specific photo, I just have to click through one by one until I find it. Ideally I'd like a tab in Teams that is specifically for photo viewing. Similar to a phone, or a folder on my desktop, I'd like to easily jump between viewing thumbnails,…

                                    • Automatically send files if they finish uploading.

                                      When sending a file I have to wait for it to be uploaded before I can send it. Why don't send it but keep it uploading? It´s a waste of time. I don't won't to wait. It's frustrating.

                                      • Posted Moved File Handling

                                        When a file is moved or renamed after it has been uploaded and posted to a channel, the link referenced in the conversation in that channel never gets updated, therefore leaving a broken link with an existing conversation.
                                        If Teams is intelligent enough to post the file to the channel, and handles the move, it should be able to find and update the posted locations in the channels.

                                        • Shorten Default "Files" URL from "Shared Documents" to "Docs"

                                          This suggestion actually affects the underlying SharePoint service in addition to Teams.

                                          The underlying URL for the default "Documents" document library in SharePoint is "Shared Documents", which in a URL is actually "Shared%20Documents" as spaces cannot exist in URLs and must be handled with the %20 character substitution.

                                          This means that instead of being able to send a nice clean human readable URL to a file like:
                                          https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Docs/Collateral/design.docx

                                          We end up with:
                                          https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Shared%20Documents/Collateral/design.docx

                                          This is confusing for users.

                                          I would even go so far as to request that every time a user attempts to create a folder or file name…
