  1. I want to know when users downloaded a file that I posted. This lets me know if the information is valuable

    I would like you to build a table of the users that have downloaded a file that was posted. It is a log of when it was downloaded. I would like this metadata to determine if the file that I created is valuable based upon the number and who download it.

  2. Double click to edit, or edit by default, for documents and spreadsheets in Teams

    I find it frustrating having to click Edit to make quick edits to documents shared in teams. For some reason this is particularly aggravating when working with spreadsheets.

    Please enable either double-click to edit or automatically open documents as editable by default.

  4. powershell scripts

    We store a lot of powershell scripts in Teams for collaborative use. It sure would be nice to be able to edit scripts from within teams without having to download them and the upload when complete.

  5. Unified view accross files within team

    Being member of several teams in the company, it is very frustrating that each channel of each team has its own independent Files view.
    Without ability to search through the files, it happens on a daily basis, that different team members are storing the same file, or different versions of the same file across different Files folders, and Files structure becomes very quickly cluttered and inconsistent.
    Even I understand the security approach, where each team can have some files, which should be kept as private for the team members, I don't understand, why the single Files view is not applied…

  7. Hi, I have MS Teams in both my Company Surface Pro and Samsung J7 mobile phone. I need to acces files at homes

    It is very strange, I can see all files from my mobile phone. However from my Surface Pro cannot get to sub/subfolders. I can go to subfolder under main folder, but doesn't open files in these subfolders. I have to make amendments on them today on Sunday and make available for Monday morning, do not know where and how to get support.
    If anyone responds here, please ensure I got notification in email provided below

  11. Deep links shouldn't contain the entire folder structure

    Deep links shouldn't contain the entire folder hierarchy. I might not want to reveal the details of my hierarchy to someone I am sharing one file with.

  12. Make file preview work for files with an apostrophe somewhere in the file path

    Currently if an apostrophe exists at any point in the file address (name of file, parent folder or Team name) the file can't be previewed.

    In such situations we get a "Hmm... looks like this file doesn't have a preview we can show you." and a Download button is visible.

    This behaviour seems inconsistent given that apostrophes aren't listed as invalid characters for OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint.

  13. Dropbox sharing

    Could be great if the dropbox integration could be used, to share company folders, and not just personal folders.

  16. When hovering on the attach button, include in the tool tip that they can drag and drop files here

    When people are hovering on the attach icon, include in the tool tip verbiage that they can drag and drop files too rather than browse to it with the dialog box.

  17. Add a download section in the Teams app

    After downloading a file in Teams app, the download notification appears only once and it is hard to reach where did the file end up...
    When clicking on that notification it does open the folder but the downloaded file is not selected, this is a must.

  19. I found how we can search our Saved content, with the command bar. Is there a way to group your saved Content, or maybe store them in folder

    It is really cool that we can save our content.
    But, is there a way to group all your save content into different catergories? Or, maybe save your content files, to a shared folder in Teams, or SharePoint integration, plug in?

  20. Adobe InDesign cannot be viewed like other Adobe file types?

    Unlike Photoshop and Illustrator files, InDesign files cannot be viewed in Teams. This is putting a damper on some CTE and district departments from fully adopting TEAMS.
