    • 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.

      • Folder organization

        I would like to move a folder in order to better organize my work space. Until now, the order depends on the date creation of the folder.

        • "Open with" option for non-microsoft files

          When trying to open a file that isn't OneNote, Word, Excel, or Powerpoint, it won't let you open the documents to edit them. Even files that belong to Microsoft Visio can't be opened. At least for my office we have Adobe products being used as well. Having a prompt come up for when app or program you want to use would be very useful. Also being able to save changes directly to the SharePoint library where the file originated. Downloading and reuploading in a creative environment with designers is a huge hassle.

          • Better sending of files between team and personal OneDrives.

            It would be awesome to be able to send files from my personal OneDrive (in the Files section) to one of the team drives.

            When you right click it could say "Send to team...". If you click on it, it will pop out a list of your teams. You select a team, and it pops up with a dialogue similar to the Share File dialogue in chat to choose where to save it.

            Additionally, in the Team > Channel > Files tab, there could be a Add File from My OneDrive, that pops up with a Dialogue similar to the…

            • Select Default File Repositiry

              As most companies already have an established File Repository either in O365, NAS or other cloud storage and cant afford to have users putting files in different locations due to confusion, allow the Team owner upon creation to specify a location for Files and use this location as the default when doing attachments and links.

              • 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.

                • Allow sync with password manager within Teams (like Keepass/LastPass)

                  As the tought of MS Teams is, that you manage all data from a company within Teams we need an Password manager app or connector that could be linked in several TEAMs or Channels which would work with sso. Personally i think we should be able to migrate all our existing Data/Software to Teams. But actually we as company have to get some third party vendors and an external application.

                  • Add OneDrive to Files tab

                    In addition to being able to connect Sharepoint folders to the Teams-Files tab, we should be able to add OneDrive.

                    • start conversation on file without opening file

                      Starting conversations is currently only possible once you have a file open in read mode. We should be able to start a conversation on a file from the [...] context menu. Anyone agree?

                      • Setting to always open documents in native application

                        I never want to open the document in Teams, or in Office Online. I always want to use the native desktop program. Would be nice if there was a global setting so documents always opened in desktop applications.

                        • Drag and drop files into different channels/ teams

                          In the files tab of each channel, the only option is to move a file from one channel to another in the SAME team.. We should be able to move files into different teams too.

                          • Dynamic links to files in conversations

                            I want links to files in a conversation to be dynamic. If we move a file to a folder, the link will no longer work as it is today. Can you make that work?

                            • Re-naming file error - Sorry, we couldn't find your file

                              I started a conversation on a file, which posted it into the conversation feed

                              Then I went to the Files tab and renamed the file

                              Now when I click the file at the top of the existing thread in the conversation stream, it says "Sorry, we couldn't find your file."

                              Basically when you rename a file, the existing post of that file in the conversation feed does not know the file has been renamed

                              • Add Option to Reduce/Remove Compression for Attached Image Files

                                Image compression really hampers teams who commonly share in-progress artwork or screenshots with each other.

                                I'd like the ability to opt-out of auto-compression, both for the files I upload and for certain channels where it is especially important that every pixel is untarnished.

                                  • File version summary showing that a file has changed, new updates, who changed files, conversations about content, etc

                                    We are using teams to collaborate on files. Is is possible to be able to see when files are changed or the review process has been undertaken. For instance, if I upload a file and need someone to review the file, I would need to tag the person but I don't have a common view of this.

                                    Can I get notifications when a file has been changed?

                                        • Track changes (and lock function) in files a/o assignment resources

                                          Ability to view Track Changes pane in word online when viewing in teams together with having the ability to lock the track changes function for added resources when handing out assignments, so that all changes are automatically tracked. Easily accessible version history for assignments and other files from inside Teams (much like the possibilities i OneNote).
