  5. Drag and drop documents OUT of the chat

    The ability to drag and drop documents send via chat onto your desktop instead of clicking a link to download and then retrieve from download will make the process quicker and less cumbersome.

  8. It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename / redirect the default files tab.

    It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename / redirect the default tabs. A lot of times files / notes are too generic names for the tabs, so renaming would be really helpful then. Being able to redirect them to existing repositories would be awesome too.

  9. Allow WEBDAV access to private file stores such as Synology, Nextcloud, Owncloud, etc.

    Consider allowance of private file stores that you could add to a team or channel. Examples of private filestores include Synology, Nextcloud, Owncloud or others using WEBDAV or other protocols. This would be enabled through the Admin interface. OneDrive doesn't have "team" like capability.

  10. Add a "Under Review = Draft" Tab for the Task Planner

    Adding a Draft/Under Review option could help alert those sign to a task or monitoring tasks to see what stage the project is on. In progress is a pretty broad category and could not indicate how far the task is along.

  11. Change the file size limit for which can be stored in Teams

    Please allow us to increase the file size limit for which can be stored in Teams. Current size limit is set to 15 GB for each file, and we can’t increase the limit.

  12. 1 linked in document in multiple team site locations

    Ability to have a single document linked so if you have 2 or more different stakeholder groups you only have to update 1 doc instead of managing 3 different teams with the document constantly.

  13. Post to a Teams channel from a Office document.

    It would be great to be able to post a conversation around a file in a channel directly from a Office document in a team (opening the conversation panel to the right).

  14. Allow us to send multiple/different files with the same name to multiple colleagues

    Example scenario:


    • I send a file with the name (example) "Contract.pdf" to a colleague via teams.


    • I create a new pdf with the same name but different content


    • I send the new PDF to another colleague and tell teams to overwrite file (because the exact unique name is important)


    • The first colleague can now click on Download file via Teams and download the new file instead of either the old one or nothing at all.



    Solution:

    For teams, create a separate folder for each chat in Onedrive to ensure that different files with the same name are sent in different…

  15. teams need to work better with OneDrive

    We can add channels to team, and a new folder will be added to the teams' document folder. However , this folder has nothing to do with the channel . for example ,when I upload one file to the channel , I cannot see it in the teams' document as I wanted.

  17. Unique file accounts per user/chat

    If I am sharing a file that has the same filename that I already shared anywhere else in Team - in another chat or team, I am always prompted to say that this file already exists - even though I might not have ever share it in this particular chat. It would be great if I could share same files individually to different users and chats.

  18. Create Team from Windows Explorer

    It would have been fantastic if you could just mark a folder in Windows Explorer and then just press «Create Team» to make a Teams-Team out of it with all the files and structure included in the new Team, You would propably need a plug-in module for the Windows Explorer, but if you could do this, the change from traditional servers archives to Teams would have been super efficient. This operation should make the original folder dissappear from the server of course, so you dont have to deal with double-up archives.

  19. Video playback

    Our teams love posting motivational videos throughout the day, but as of right now it posts the file rather than having a key image with a play button and playing the video. I think this would be a great change to make and would help us out a lot after moving from groupme!

  20. I would like the ability to put a label on a file.

    I often need to upload the same file name (.exe) but the versions are different. I would like the ability to put a label on the file that describes the version # of the .exe. This will allow my end-users to see the version without having to rename the .exe.
