  1. Use hyphens between words in SharePoint site URLs to increase findability

    When I create a new Teams space, e.g. Data & Integration Network, a SharePoint site is created in the background to store the files associated with the team.

    Currently the URL of this SharePoint site becomes https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/DataIntegrationNetwork

    To increase findability of this SharePoint site and its contents (outside Teams), the proposal is that you add hyphens as word brakers in the SharePoint site URLs. In the abovementioned example, the URL should be:
    https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/Data-Integration-Network

    Since the SharePoint Online search engine uses hyphens as word brakers, this would make it possible to search for integration network and find this site by URL…

  2. Adobe InDesign cannot be viewed like other Adobe file types?

    Unlike Photoshop and Illustrator files, InDesign files cannot be viewed in Teams. This is putting a damper on some CTE and district departments from fully adopting TEAMS.

  3. conversations

    Having a conversation around a document is great - it would be even better if you could incorporate track changes and in-doc comments within the conversation instead of having to reference chagnes within the covo for feedback in the doc.

    Also, pptx docs don't show sections in the slide sorter pane

  4. alphabetische Sortierung

    Eine alphabetische Sortierung der Datein ist wünschenswert. Die neuesten Dateien immer zuoberst zu sehen ist nicht immer hilfreich.

  5. Submitting files in advance

    I currently work as a teacher in a secondary school as a computing science teacher, unfortunately there was a fire and we have started the students again using Microsoft teams as a method of delivery. While planning lessons I like to stay ahead but am unable to upload lessons and resources too far in advance. I think a nice additional feature for teachers would be the ability to add files and the likes but choose when members are able to access or view it. Such as setting an “available to members: 9/9/18”

  6. Enable a Save As option on Files

    Within Files in Teams, enable the ability to take an existing file and Save As to create another name, iteration, etc. of the content. This would be much faster than doing it outside of Teams and then having to upload.

  7. Have the ability to open multiple files at the same time, flick between them, make changes, and make it easier to save the updates.

    Have the ability to open multiple files at the same time, flick between them with ease, make changes, and make it easier to save the updates. The present process is clunky, and not slick

  8. When trying to send existing file on iPhone via Teams cannot choose multiple recipients

    For example, I have received an email with a pdf file on my iPhone. I would like to send it to a few Teams members. It won't allow me to do that, only one recipient can be chosen or existing group. In case I haven't got an existing group created with needed recipients I will need to send file separately to each one of them or go to Теамс first to create the group and then send the file. Teams should allow selecting multiple recipients or even groups maybe.

  10. Create a New Team from existing team - should include Files

    When you use the Create a New Team from Existing Team it would be great to transfer content under the Files Tab. This will save teachers a lot of time having to re-upload content.

  13. download

    I uploaded a few files in the "Files" tab of a team, but if I try to download the file back to my PC, it doesn't do anything.
    I tried to right click on the file name and choose download.
    I tried to select the file and then click on the ... on the right side and select download, nothing happens.
    What should I do?

  15. On reopening Teams, do not auto open the last document used

    When reopening Teams, it's always reopening the last document I edited - regardless of whether I closed it and went on to a different folder.
    Please remove - or add a setting to stop that.

  16. Please enable multi-layer folder selection

    When you Add Cloud Storage and select Sharepoint, the pop-up browser starts you at the Team Site and only allows you to select Documents, whereas adding other storage solutions like Dropbox allows as many folder layers as you have available in the directory structure.
    Teams is limited by not supporting more than two layers down in Sharepoint.

  17. Access files

    First don’t give suggestions on how to find an independent resolution. Second, folks need to be able to access the files on the mobile devices.

  18. need more than one Sharefile / Onenote account to link to teams

    We have global and regional sharefile accounts and want to link selected ones to the teams, but you can only add one Sharefile account. Same for onedrive.

  19. Make Creating Folders in Files Tab Easier

    When I want to make a bunch of folders it's really annoying having to un-check mark the last folder created to get to the new folder button again.
