  1. In search result : option GO TO channel or folder

    When we find a file in the search, it would be great to have the option to go to the file location and access directly the Channel / folder

    ( like when we download a file on a computer we can open the file or Go to file location)

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. The option to combine files shared to be placed into named folders after all shared files are loaded.

    After sharing multiple files for a single project can Teams allow an option to organize the shared filed into a Named Folder example - 2019 exam files.

  10. allow pdf files to be turned into a tab

    Hi, when i select more options against a pdf in files to turn the file into a tab it doesn't seem to give you this option? Works fine with word or excel files.

    I see someone else has been able to do the above but not sure why its not giving the option. The file is saved originally as an adobe file not sure if this makes a difference?

  16. "Attach File" from Outlook for "Team only" Office 365 group

    When an Office 365 group is set to be hidden from the Exchange client, the option to attach files from that group is also removed.

    Attach File -> Browse Web Locations -> Group Files -> ?

    Even a Team that does not use any Outlook features should have access to the Document library for file sharing. All groups a user is a member of should show here.

  17. Items shared through the Files tab should optionally open in a separate window

    Classic example: I was working through an ad-hoc task list with some colleagues. We were ticking items off as we addressed them and discussing issues raised during the process.

    We each had to open Teams and a separate browser window in order to see both the list and the chat at the same time. It would have been much easier to simply right-click the list and "open in new window" or similar.

    Can we please?

  20. Allow files dropped in a channel to go to a specific (sub)directory

    A typical use case is to share files, or very often, screenshots by simply dropping them in the channel. Via the "channel" tab then, not via the "files" tab.

    The result is that all these files will clutter the "root" directory of the channel and will thus make the Sharepoint file directory a complete mess.

    The proposal is to
    - allow the administrator to specify where the files that are dropped on a channel will go. For example "default is root of the channel's Sharepoint directory", it could be changed to a directory name "***" ('Dropbox' would be my choice)…
