  1. Please allow ZOOM when viewing Excel Spreadsheets in Teams

    Spreadsheets are automatically zoomed in to only display a couple of lines/columns when opening them within Teams. I would love to zoom in/out and be able to see more on my screen within Teams instead of having to open it in a browser.

    When I Right click, go to View, or use CTRL ALT - , there is still no zoom function. Please add a Zoom functionality in at least one of these methods. It wastes time to have to open the file in a browser just to be able to see an adequate portion of the spreadsheet.

  2. 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,…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. More option for columns in files

    Please give the option to show more columns in files.
    Actually you only have the columns "Type, Name, Date, Name, Size".

    Same as you can do in SharePoint.

  12. Allow a new document to be created from a file template file (eg: .dotx) from within the Files tab for a team.


    • A user finds the dotx file and clicks on it and Teams creates the .docx file and opens up Word to edit the file

    • When the user saves the file it saves to the same channel in the team

  13. track changes to documents

    New to this so hope I'm not missing a feature that's already there.
    Can't seem to find a way to track changes made by individual team members to documents as we do with MS Word out of the box.

  14. Move Folder

    I would like folders to have the same options as individual files. When highlighting a file in the root directory you get the option to move the file. I would like to be able to consolidate folders. Currently you have to do this process via SharePoint.

  15. Download Folders

    Let me download the whole folder! Instead I have to click on each file and download. Open other folders, download those files, then come out and into another folder and download files and then out and in again... it's very irritating. Why can't I download the root folder as a zip or something?

  16. Alphabetical ordering of Folders under "Files"

    I need to click to sort the folders under "Files" as they are scrambled every time I access the "Files" tab.

  17. Drag and Drop Outlook Attachments into Files

    Would be great if you could drag and drop Outlook attachments right into Teams. The need to download/save the file, then go to that location and drag into Teams seems silly!

  18. Create document based on a template

    There is no ability to assign a document template to a team/document library.
    A great functionality would be that a seperate document library could be assigned which contains all the document templates to choose from (Other site).
    These templates can then be managed with the same functionality of SharePoint, but the published documents can then be used as a template to start your document.

  19. Add Option to Reduce/Remove Compression for Attached Image Files

    Image compression really hampers teams who commonly share in-progress artwork or screenshots with each other.

    I'd like the ability to opt-out of auto-compression, both for the files I upload and for certain channels where it is especially important that every pixel is untarnished.

  20. Sync files from PC or Mac directly to Team folders / channels via Finder or Windows Explorer

    Allow users to sync files from Windows PC or Mac directly to Teams folders / channels via Finder or Windows explorer. The current process is quite slow and laborious with the amount of steps one has to take in order to save files or share them.

    OneDrive does this presently, but only for individuals. My team is looking for a SHARED drive where we can all save and send files and folders for our campaigns directly to the Teams folder via Sites - but the current process requires users to first save to their desktop and drag into the Teams…
