  1. Channel templates

    It would be nice to have a template for the Files section in Channels. Define your directory structure once, then apply it to every new Channel created in a Team.

    • 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.

      • Enable sizing of file/library columns

        The Files tab (a SharePoint File Library) has the file name as a first column. It's size is fixed, so long file names are "truncated". All we need is to be able to expand the column, so the names fit.

        A mouse over with the full name would also be appreciated.

        • More OneDrive functionality within the Teams App

          It would be great if the Teams app could have the same controls for managing your OneDrive data as you have in a browser. One of our biggest issues is that people like to use windows explorer to access mapped drives. Not everyone wants to use the sync app and have files stored on the local computer to see files in explorer. I could see the Teams App being a good replacement for managing and accessing OneDrive data without a need to login to the portal or sync.

          • Move Folders

            I wish you can move folders within folder in file management :) Also, recent places would be very helpful.

            • Enable search for OneDrive files

              Currently, when I perform a search for a file in my OneDrive for Business account, it does not display in the search results. I would like for a search in Teams to surface my OneDrive files alongside other files shared within teams.

              • 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?

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • "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.

                        • Onedrive for Business integration for mobile apps.

                          Don't know why this isn't available by now. Would it be possible to have OneDrive for Business integrated with mobile apps?

                            Would someone be able to provide feedback in the comments as to what is the expectation of this integration? What functionality is being asked for?

                            Any details to better understand the request is appreciated.

                          • Edit Channel File Path

                            In the channel editing popup, add the ability to modify the default link to the folders for the channel. Our company uses a multi-level hierarchical structure and it would be great to build this within a team and point the channels to specific sub-folders as the files shown in the channel.

                            • File download with Drag & Drop

                              I really miss drag & drop within downloading files. I need to put project files to folder accorded to project. Without drag & drop I have to go to downloaded files folder first, and then move files to the project folder. So annoyin'. Gmail allows D&D attachment files.
                              I also miss possibility to download all attached files at once. Again, Gmail can do it.

                                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.

Easily accessible version history for assignments and other files from inside Teams (much like the possibilities i OneNote).

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
