  1. Is there a file size limit?

    I keep trying to upload a zip file (105,622KB). I do not get an error message, but I am getting an empty file in out files list. It just says that the size is 0.00 Bytes.

  2. Save documents directly into Channels/Teams

    Need to be able to browse Teams and channels that I'm a member of from the Save As menu.

    I have favourited many channels that I need visibility of and have followed a large number of sites and channels, however there is no option to view them all when trying to save to a SharePoint site. At the moment I have to save to desktop and then upload them to the required Channel

    Not such an issue from 3rd party products (although desirable) but to not be able to do this from Office is bizarre. I don't want Word to…

  3. Make files available off-line. It’s SharePoint! Let us check out files!

    I must work off-line frequently. Where is the ability to check out files, or to sync changes?!

  4. space bar ≠ download

    Pressing spacebar when previewing an image or file should NOT download that file. If I wanted to download a file, I would press the download button, not the same quick key for page scrolling or previewing.

  5. Hard Link support

    Add the ability to create hard links for a single document. This would allow that single document to appear in multiple Teams channels.

    Example - A Visio document outlining a business process which crosses multiple disciplines and each discipline has its own MS Teams channel. We wouldn't want each channel to have a unique copy of the Visio doc, rather we'd want each channel to have a hard link to a singular common document on the backend.

  6. Chat

    When sharing a document in teams, sometimes you get the opiotn to chat, which opens right next to the document which is nice but sometimes it's not there and you lose the ability to see the document you are referencing as you are chatting about it.

    Please keep the chat option available consistently.

  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. "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.

  10. To Prevent Hitting the Limit of # of Teams, Archive Team, then Archive Files in SharePoint, Delete Team

    Glad to see the ability to Archive a Team added, but we assume this does not subtract from the limit of 250 Teams per person ('Limits and specifications for Microsoft Teams'). Therefore, after we Archive in Teams, we need to archive the Team's files in SharePoint for later access, and delete the actual Team. This is extremely important to us.

  12. Download to a specific foler

    Download files from Teams to the "Downlaod" folder is not always a good idea. we end up always cutting he file from that folder and pasting it into our desired folder.

    Would be good to have the option of selecting the destination folder for any download. this will allow eliminate the need for a cut and past and improve user experience

  13. Ability to duplicate groups

    Each time I open up my Group 10B's Content Library the folders are not in the order I left them. This is very frustrating. It stays in the correct order for ALL my other classes except this one. If it were easy to copy files over to another group I would delete the 10B Group and start a new one. There should be a way to duplicate an entire group as I am a school teacher and have more than 1 class as a Group on Teams, which need the same files. If I could duplicate a group and rename…

  15. saving documents directly to tasks from emails (and to edit the name of the file)

    Why can't I saving documents directly to tasks from emails and be able to edit the name of the file before saving?

  17. Improve the behavior when opening PDF previews in Microsoft Teams

    Microsoft Teams won’t show the PDF preview if the PDF file contains unsupported characters. As a walkaround, this can be resolved by embedding the font when creating a PDF file to be shared in Microsoft Teams. It would be great if you could increase supported text fonts and provide us some public documents detailed about which fonts are available on the preview in Microsoft Teams.

  18. Search into OneNote files should highlight the search terms in OneNote page

    When typing a search expression in Teams, if a file like OneNote has that search term, when clicked and opened it should open the page with that term, highlight it, and then have the option to use Next or F3 to each reference of that term.

  19. File Management

    Change the default file storage location either Dropbox or One Drive. Currently Dropbox and One Drive can be used as add-ons but should be able to use them as defaults for all channels.
