  2. Allow editing of PPTM files within Teams/Powerpoint online

    Not even Powerpoint online will allow co-editing of PPTM files so it would need to be functionality added there first, then also allowed in Teams.

  4. Cell phone mobile protection or option to not load teams through app when away from office

    Looking for a solution for protecting team files from loading on mobile cell phones. Right now all teams and group files are loaded which could be a security risk. Such as when you are using your cell phone, but you walk into the office open your laptop - which is seen as mobile and has the app installed could access the files. Does this already exist? I have searched. Can the user control this or is it a deeper Admin function?

  5. assignments export

    When I export the assignment report for a class there is no information about assignments of students which are not turned in or with a delay. Neither the date of the assignment is shown.
    So I have to ride down a note in every single feedback box.
    Please add the information "turned in"/ "not turned in"/ "delayed" and the dates to the export file.

  7. Condivisione farraginosa

    Far Modificare un file Excel da 30 persone con versioni differenti, e con devices differenti sta diventando lento e farraginoso.
    La risoluzione sta nel problema che ho esposto.

  9. Sending files from teams via outlook

    It would be good to have a function for sending files from teams directly to outlook. for example right click on file and send via outlook.

  10. Enable editing function of files which stored in the cloud storage

    We can’t edit files which added to the cloud storage such as Box due to the current limitation. It can be opened as read-only mode. It would be great if I could edit those files by opening them from the Files section in the left side pane in Teams.

  12. Support for playing video files from Files

    We record short video files (for instance from a smartphone) and store it in the Files tab in a channel. The problem is that the files are not playable directly in teams.
    For instance, to view a .mov-file it requires download to PC or device (or upload to YouTube or Stream) in order to view it.
    That is way too cumbersome.

    To keep up as an innovative app, locally stored video files should be playable directly in the Teams app (both desktop and iOS/Android.)

  15. Fix bug with automatic name switch on re-saved files

    Excel files that are re-saved under a different name switch document name with the original file.

    This happens regularly: I opened an Excel file with name "201905" and resaved it as "201906" with a slightly different content. After a while suddenly I had both files open on my desktop and the original file and my edited file had changed names. Thus the edited file was named 201905, however, this is supposed to be the original file. Creates potential significant issues when not aware of it.

  16. Select multiple files for upload to chat

    on mobile devices (android) it is possible to share files only one by one while chat. additional while selecting a new file it is not visible to see, what files are already in chat.
    it should be possible to select multiple file in one folder to share them at one step.

  17. Rename "Cloud Storage" shortcuts

    Add the functionality to rename a could storage shortcut in the Files tab. We often use this feature but in the majority of the cases it's not necessary to see the name of the site of the connected library and in some it causes the name you want the user to see to be cut off. The attachment shows a long site name prevents from seeing what the library name is (after the underscore). Most of the time we're adding another library on the same site so it's redundant to show the site name anyway. It would be extremely helpful…

  18. Links don't work in Channel files

    Use Case: In my channel folder in the SharePoint Share Documents Library, I have added a link to another library in the site. When I view the channel documents from within TEAMS->Files, I am unable to view the library. It says it doesn't have a preview and I must download it....but, obviously download isn't the solution and, beside, downloading didn't work anyway.

    Seems to me that whatever is in the channel folder should work, a file, a link, whatever.
