  1. 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.

    This request has been approved and has now moved to the backlog!

    Stay tuned for further updates.

  2. Ability to Control Document Edit Permissions

    Currently when a document is added to a Team channel, all members of the channel have full edit rights on the document, which could result in documents being modified by too many people. Having the ability to make the file read-only to the channel except for the doc poster, or toggle editability by members of the channel could help doc owners share information without the risk of losing content to zealous editors in the channel.

    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Sort files default by name in teams.

    Sort files in Teams. Under files, the files are not sorted in "Names" by default. I have to press the sort button Name every time.

  6. 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

  7. File Check in/out

  9. 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,…

  10. Tab key in Excel Online within Teams selects Teams Back Button

    When I have the Desktop version of Teams open and I edit an Excel doc within Teams (using Excel online), the tab key selects the Teams back button (the top-left UI element) rather than sending the tab to excel online. Tab is such a commonly used key within excel (e.g. add a new line to a table) that this issue makes excel a frustrating experience.

  11. 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.

  12. Move folders

    Hi, so far, you can only move documents. But I want to move folders as well.

  13. Please add the option to remove the files tab

    I want our team to use Sharepoint for files and therefore I have added Sharepoint at the tab bar on top. However, it doesn't seem possible to remove the files tab. This creates two places where files are stored. Please add the option to remove the files tab.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Assignments - bulk download

    I'd like to be able to bulk download student work so that I don't have to open the files one at a time online. When students write reports for grading, these are saved as .pdf files and I want to be able to download all of them at once and save them in my Assessment folder rather than having to download one at a time.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
