  1. Modify OneDrive files inside Teams

    Currently, we can view OneDrive files directly inside Teams, but if we want to edit them, we have to edit in our web browser or in local...

    It will be great to be able to modify directly inside Teams

    • More option for columns in files

      Please give the option to show more columns in files.
      Actually you only have the columns "Type, Name, Date, Name, Size".

      Same as you can do in SharePoint.

      • File Tab doesn't restore previous sort applied to files

        Files Tab does not restore previous sort applied to files. I start the name of my folders with numbers to preserve sort order. Every time I visit the tab the files are out of order because they are using a default sort order (created date?) I would suggest maintaining the last sort on every files tab so end users do not have to sort every time they visit the tab. Hope this feedback helps!.

        • Save email attachment directly to a Team

          Using Outlook on the web I can save an attachment to ODB, locally, or preview. It's important for user adoption of Teams to be able to save directly to the Teams SP site in the appropriate folder.

            • Removal of the General folder from the document library

              I think having a folder in the document library (called General) complicates what should be a simple experience.

              You can save email attachments to Office 365 groups and that list includes the Teams you have access to.

              However if you save a file to a team, the file is saved to the document library, but not inside the 'General' folder.

              This makes sense, however it means that you cannot see the files saved, from the Teams interface - unless you create a new view, to see the parent directory... which would be a bit silly really.

              Being able to save…

              • Add Lists to Teams - Teams only shows document library

                I can view a document from SharePoint team site in Teams. I can't view a list folder in Teams. Therefore I still have to go back to the SharePoint team site to view the list folders. I am working with a group who prefer to use Teams but are required to fill out a list on SharePoint. It would be easier if they could do it while in Teams.

                • Easier File Contents Searching

                  Current File search functionality can tell which files contain certain content but do not take the user to that page of the file (in the case of, e.g., a PDF) nor highlight the searched text. Once a document is displayed, neither is there a Find/Ctrl+F function. These would be very welcome additions.

                  • Channels in Teams should be able to link to specific Sharepoint sub-directories in Files.

                    Channels in Teams should be able to link to specific Sharepoint sub-directories in Files. If Sharepoint was set up first, it can have a directory per category (what are now channels). Specific Channels should be able to link to these directories.

                    • Automate Team creation and its folder/file/channel structure.

                      We create lots of Teams for different projects. We use standard folder structure and put file templates inside each folder for the Team to use. We do this every time we create a new Team for projects and this request goes to a single person only. Would be nice if there is a Powershell command/script or buttons to automate this repetitive task.

                      • Sort by Name

                        When sorting folders by Name within a folder, have the numbered folders be sorted in numerical order.

                        • Allow a new document to be created from a file template file (eg: .dotx) from within the Files tab for a team.

                          - A user finds the dotx file and clicks on it and Teams creates the .docx file and opens up Word to edit the file
                          - When the user saves the file it saves to the same channel in the team

                          • Upload more than 10 files at once

                            Why limit file uploads to just 10 at one time, it limits us getting a user to move their legacy data over to Teams.

                              • We are setting up your file directory - still an issue from day one

                                This has been an issue for me and my whole team since day one.
                                When trying to use files i get the following message: "We are setting up your file directory."

                                The same implies when trying to use for example one note: "We are setting up the OneNote notebook for this team. It will take a few minutes, please be patient and check out later." - nothing has happened for a few weeks.

                                Is this an ongoing issue to be solved?

                                    • And just why when I download a file from Teams, I'm not provided an option to select the location to save the file?

                                      And just why does Teams NOT provide me with an option to select the location to save a downloaded file to or otherwise inform me of the specific location that was downloaded to? Isn't that like asking someone "where's the car is" to which the person responds "in the a parking lot"? Technically correct, but utterly useless.

                                      • Move files between teams

                                        Need to be able to move files from one team to another. Right now we can only copy them from one team to another.

                                        • Timecode comments on videos

                                          We are already allowed to comment on files, but it would be great if we could be taken to a specific frame when we comment on video files.
                                          This function exists in solutions like frame.io, wipster and vimeo video review.

                                          We're migrating everything to teams and planner so this one function would great for us.
