  1. Allow the creation of channels for subfolders in the library

    Often we have sub folders in our sharepoint library. We would like to have the possibility to create a channel for such a subfolder, to be able to discuss things around the documents in this subfolder.

    It would be nice to be able to click on a file in the files folder and be redirected to the channel, when the file was uploaded.
    Then you could see why it was uploaded and what was discussed regarding this file.

  3. bad request

    When trying to edit a *.doc file from Teams the only error message the user gets is "Bad Request". When trying the same in Word Online to asks me to convert it to the latest (docx) format in order to continue to work with it.

    The same option message should be shown to the user in the Teams interface. "Bad request" simply doesn't make any sense to the users.

  5. Create hyperlinks: the current links in Teams appear horribly unprofessional

    Attaching a document link in a conversation with colleagues often looks horrendous when the links are 8+ lines long. Can we clean this up?

  7. Share from OneDrive as view only in a chat

    What you share a file from OneDrive in a private chat they always grant Read/Right permissions. It would be useful to be able to share as Read Only

  8. Easier way to manage new file uploads in channels

    If a document is shared by someone in a conversation within a channel then the system does not automatically put it into a specific folder nor does it ask the user where he wants to place it within the SharePoiint document library. This means that the user needs to manually move it into a respective folder.

    Is there a way users could be prompted to specify a target location of a document within Teams&SharePoint upon upload_

  10. "apply to all" on file replace

    When replacing uploaded files, it becomes tedious to hit "Replace" repeatedly. A simple "Apply to all" button would make life blissful so we can all go have cocktails or whatnot.

  11. Corelate OneDrive from O365 Personal to Teams Free

    After creating a Teams Free account using my existing Office 365 personal account I've noticed that the OneDrive listing in Teams/Files is empty, whereas my O365 Onedrive is not. They are clearly different Onedrive spaces... should they not be the same?

  12. file selection count

    When selecting multiple files in Files tab (using CTRL or SHIFT), show the count / quantity of how many files are currently selected at the top of the page.

    This is standard on pretty much every other modern day app... catch up!
    Thanks!

  14. Allow SharePoint files to be pinned as tabs in Teams

    I would like to be able to pin a SharePoint file as a tab without having to upload it directly to Teams first. The issue that we run into is that you then have different versions of a file. One that is in SharePoint and one that is in Teams. Depending on who accesses which version you can have edits in both that have to be merged somehow which is a total nightmare.

  16. Files > Recent Include any File that was opened from Teams directly (edit in Teams) or edited in Office

    The "Files > Recent" list includes only files that may have been opened or edited in Teams itself. Because Office Online doesn't have all the functionality that stand-alone Office has (e.g., can't zoom in/out using the slider in lower right corner), many of our users open files directly in Office (e.g., "Open in Word", "Open in PowerPoint", "Open in Excel", etc.). Files opened this way do not appear in the list of files recently accessed in Teams.

  20. open files

    When opening a file in Teams, It would be good if the file persisted at least for a little while. If I am working a file via teams and I need to refer to a conversation or Wiki. The file closes and I need to reopen when I switch back.
