  1. Allow Teams & SharePoint Files to Communicate

    Would like for it to be possible to add a SP file to Teams, make modifications to that file, and have those changes reflected and saved to the file in SP as a version rather than having a file stored in SP and a file stored in Teams that don't communicate with each other.

  2. 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.

  3. Browsing within TEAMS on folders and files.

    Browsing within TEAMS on folders and files, has to be simplified more intuitively and user-friendly, as moving from one folder to another or moving from file to file is not very simple and intuitive.

  5. Media Gallery in Chats

    It would be awesome to have a Chat Media tab in the chat that shows images you have shared in line and not as a file. WhatsApp has a similar feature of which I have attached a screenshot.

  7. Better version history options

    Setting: Shared access to edit Excel Spreadsheet.
    The current system only shows different versions.

    It would be way better if each version could colour code each editor and the edits they have made. E.G I made edits on 4 cells and Kelly made edits on a different set of cells, all my edits will be purple in the version history and Kelly's will be orange? Opening a version history should have an indication of how many edits were in that version with a link to each cell that was changed.
    Also it will be beneficial if the version history could…

  8. Characters in the file are corrupted when viewing it via viewer in Teams

    If you store a file in a compressed folder such as .zip folder and view the file via viewer in Teams, Japanese characters in the file are corrupted. I would like you to improve this behavior with some fix patch.
    Ref. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sharepoint_support/2017/02/17/sharepoint-onlineonedrive-for-business-%E3%81%AE-zip-%E3%83%95%E3%82%A1%E3%82%A4%E3%83%AB%E3%81%AE%E6%96%87%E5%AD%97%E5%8C%96%E3%81%91%E3%81%AB%E3%81%A4%E3%81%84%E3%81%A6/

  9. allow invites to subfolder within a team

    There are times when we want people to only see a certain subfolder within a Team. It would be nice to be able to only invite them to that subfolder instead of the Team.

  10. remove "we are opening your document message"

    When you open a document in Teams (files, right click, open in desktop app) a modal appears explaining that I can keep working in Teams whilst my document is opening.
    As a user I would like a checkbox in that model so that I can check a box.
    As a user I would like the checkbox to enable me to not see that message again in the future so that I don't have to keep clicking OK for it to go away.
    As a user I would like to right click, open file in desktop app and simply continue my…

  11. If the author has set the file to Read-Only, "Edit" in Teams should open the File Read-Only

    I have some Excel files, which are used to calculate something based on the content of one cell. To prevent the formulas to be changes I have set the file in Excel as "Read Only". If the file is stored in Teams, and I open them in the desktop app, I can change the cell which the input for my calculation, the sheet calculates, and I really have to consciently save the file. If I click on the "Edit" button to open the file in the Teams App, it will open the file in rw-mode - which will generate a…

  13. multi-select files from Files view to "share" via outlook

    After working in Teams to create proposal documents, there was no easy way to multi-select the final set of proposal docs to "share" or send via outlook to an outside email recipient

  16. Show the formula bar in Excel files to see the content in the cell when using readonly mode in Teams

    When viewing an Excel file from the Teams client (web) app, you cannot see all the content in a single cell. I would be nice if you could click on that cell and the content would display in a read only display bar, for example the formula bar, similar to the Excel Desktop app.

  17. Make Teams act like more Windows Explorer


    1. Allow user to add more than 1 file at a time (multi-select) to Outlook email when pulling files from Teams

    2. Allow user to edit the file tree (e.g., delete a file, create a folder, drag/move files) during the attach file process in Outlook when pulling files from Teams

    3. Enable drag and move files in general in Teams

  18. Channel / Subdirectory Permission Mapping Team, Sharepoint, OneDriveBusiness

    If Teams Admin is limiting members or guests to create /delete channels -- Sharepoint does still everything -- even for Guest -- like delete
    Prio1 sync permissions from Team with Sharepoint at least for channels
    Prio2 limit "create" folder in Files to Owners only -- members only - or all as options

    Prio3 have SPO and ODB in sync as well - so all tools show the similar scurity style - and sharing shows same results using one of 3 tools

  20. Uploaded image preview in conversation

    When I upload an image into a chat, it would be nice to get an actual preview of it in the writing area (like Hangouts does) instead of just a tag with the file name. That way you can visually double check if you are sending the right image.
