  1. 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.

  2. File Check in/out

    We would like to be able to do file check in/out in Teams. We set our doc libraries to require check in/out.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Folders inside of channels' file section

    Folders inside of the Files section of a channel would be handy

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just click on “Files” tab from inside the channel, and then click the “New” button. A drop down will appear — select “Folder”.

  6. 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,…

  7. Delete files shared in chat

    Files shared in Chat are stored to OneDrive, but there is no way to delete file from within Teams. When file is deleted from OneDrive, it is (of course) no longer available and the individual gets a "Sorry, we couldn't find you file" error.

    I would like to remove the shared file entry from the Teams chat.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

    Thanks!

  10. 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.

  11. I would like to be able to add a specific Sharepoint View of a document library instead of just the SP document library

    We can add a SP document library, but we cant add a specific view of that document library. With various people or teams working in the same SP library, we create various views for various teams. Thus adding a specific SP library view instead of "just" the full library helps in sorting and collaborating

  12. Files shared in "chat" should work like Files shared in "Teams"

    - Files shared in individual chats should appear under the files tab, both within the conversation and in the blue tab on the side bar.
    - Files shared in individual chats should appear when searched for in the search bar.

    Neither of these things happen. It's inconsistent, counterintuitive, and obnoxious. Please implement.

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    I have had this problem too, and trust me I find it not intuitive either.

    I’ve sent this to the Files team and I’m going to find out where this is on the backlog so I can report back to you guys.

    Meanwhile, the workaround is that you have to delete the chat message of which you sent the message.

    Thanks and tweet me @skprufo if you have any questions!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Channel templates

    It would be nice to have a template for the Files section in Channels. Define your directory structure once, then apply it to every new Channel created in a Team.

  16. 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?

  17. 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…

  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.
