  3. 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)…

  5. Support .one file type in Microsoft Teams

    I know it is not recommended to use .one file, which is OneNote’s section file, in terms of OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online capabilities. However, it would be great if I could upload/use .one file in Microsoft Teams.

    The reason is that we are using specific .one files as we divide the capacity into small size for per section file in our operation.

  7. Discuss this file

    When editing a file in teams, or locating one in the search bar, it should be possible to select an option called "Discuss this file" where you could tag others in a chat.

    I'm currently having to get a link to the file, start the chat, post the link into the chat.

  8. Access to the Box in the cloud storage

    Currently, when I login to Teams with account A and click Files > Add cloud storage > Box, then I can log in the added Box if I use the account A. When I use the account B and try to access the Box, it does not work. So, I would like you to allow any accounts to login to the added Box.

  10. restrict files access

    Ability to control who will have access to specific files or folders within a channel.

    Example:
    You have created a team called "Workplace Coach" which is private (or even public). This team has multiple channels as follows:

    - Runway Closure
    - Progress Report
    - Check-In Training
    - Gates Training
    -Up Coming Events
    - Image and Uniform Audits

    Let's say you have your manager (as the owner of the team) and it has 20 members. Your manager instructed each team members to submit their own individual progress report in a folder under "Progress Report Channel". Each team members should have the…

  12. Allow custom icons for files

    It would be nice if file folders could have customizable icons, instead of the generic "folder".

  13. Remove the "We're opening <Filename> in <program>. Feel free to keep using Microsoft Teams." prompt.

    As a user, I selected the option to open the file in the external program. I don't need a prompt letting me know that Teams did what I just told it to do. If I'm openning multiple files, that just means I have an extra click for every single one.

  14. Enable teams owned Sway.

    Enable teams owned Sway. So created Sways can live on in the organisation despite who created the Sway.

  15. Make adding files in Teams on the iPad intuitive.

    Collaborating in files is a key feature we use in Teams and on an iPad it is not easy or intuitive. This is a major roadblock to iPad / Teams usage for us.

  16. Allow documents to be shared cross teams

    Sometimes the same documents are used but are accessible to different groups of users. It would be great if the documents can be accessible to different teams without creating a new copy. Otherwise there will be a lot of duplicates

  18. Attachment process

    The attachment process is the worst I have seen, it takes significantly longer to attach anything compared to slack, you have to wait for the painfully slow upload to finish to be able to press send, you can make it much better by copying what slack does, just upload the file and no need to press send, let it upload automatically.

  19. The Recycle bin required

    We can’t restore deleted items after sign-out from Teams, and general users can’t see the items. It might be possible to delete items accidentally, so I would ask you to implement the recycle bin function to restore deleted items.

  20. Feature that can upload files from Teams to SharePoint Online directly

    For OneDrive, we can upload files directly from Teams desktop client by clicking Files on the left side pane. Likewise, I would like to upload files on SharePoint Online from Teams client directly.
