  3. Ability to see full root of a file

    When viewing files I cannot see the full root, and so cannot see the subfolder of a document. Is there a way to see the full root of a file.

  4. File Folder Default list order by Folder Name instead of modified date

    Default Cloud storage files/folders to list Alphabetically

    Default Cloud storage files/folders to list by Folder name instead of modified date.

    Currently it seems to default to list by modified date, unfriendly.

    Or set a place where we can config it by ourselves.

  6. Can’t access OneNote files if their name has been changed via the File tab in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you to improve the OneNote file viewing experience in Microsoft Teams, because if we navigate to the File tab in Microsoft Teams to change the OneNote file name which created in SPO team site, the file can’t be accessed from Teams due to an access error.

  9. when viewing a file, if I click to chat, then go back to file, it returns me to the root folder and I have to go find the file again to open

    When I am viewing a file in teams, and then need to respond to a chat I click on the chat feature to respond, however, the Team file folder I was in closes the file view, so when I return to that "view" I'm back in the root folder and have to search for the file again. It would be nice if the file would stay open for when I return to it.

  10. create shortcut to folders

    It would be good if there was the ability to create shortcuts to folders - like in Windows file explorer where you can use Quick Access to pin folders.

  13. File permission - File Tab, Share Point Tab, Share point, One Drive

    Lack of Permission control when uploading to share point tab from Team.

    This is important, Since everyone in my company use microsoft team to share file.
    Currently,

    We have to juggle different type of file sharing and remembering the way you share your file will result in different outcome.

    For File tab it is sharable and viewable for everyone.

    For the team integrated share-point file tab, all the file uploaded through team is viewable and editable for everyone.

    If we want to control permission we have to click on that open in share point and go upload the file there,…

  14. Open files as Read Only or Open as PDF

    It would be a good idea to have an option where user can Open a File (Word or Excel) either as Read Only or Open as PDF from Teams in order to prevent any accidental editing of a document.

  15. Shared information thru Teams

    Shared information should not be stored within OneDrive or SharePoint that require or don't require access. A P2P should be simple IM between 2 or more recipients, along with the files between. A Teams Chat should also only store shared info within Teams app and not OD or SP so to alleviate access issues on OneDrive.

    Teams is far from Slack to which it is attempting to be competitive to.

  18. Allow "Browse Teams and Channels" option for Private or Group Chat attachments (link to Sharepoint docs)

    When chatting using Team Channels, we can 'attach' a shared document by selecting "Browse Teams and Channels," which streamlines document management. However, that same option does not exist in private or group chats, which makes everything so messy! We need that same option to collaborate ond documents in an organized way, avoiding proliferation of versions.
