  5. 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…

  7. I want to have a copy of a document in multiple teams and chennels and I want it to live update in all locations

    I would like to be able to have a copy of a document in multiple teams and in multiple folders within a team and if I make changes in one location, I want it to live update in all locations. This way I won't have to go to each team where the document lives and is accessed by a different set up users and make changes to the same document multiple times.

  9. 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…

  10. Make it so you can access all work etc on teams on moblies not just desktop.

    Its an amazing design, but its difficult when you can't see if someone uploads something on teams and you can only see it on a desktop, but you can't access it on your phone or tablet while using teams.

  11. Jave files as the default on folder selection NOT conversation tab

    You want feedback yet the link you send for us to click into, brings us to a page with a wall of blurb on it where it is difficult to pick out the feedback button? Then the box you fill out about ideas is just a title box with no indication of its character limit until you begin typing your idea to discover it's just the title of the idea? Who actually designs this stuff, anyone with UX skills?? Why why on earth when I click on a folder does it default to the conversation tab? I am looking for…

  12. Make Saved Emails visable in full format with attachments

    For emails with attachments that are saved in MS Teams, in order to access them, we need to download them from the site. Would like the capability to be established where when we click on the saved email, it opens up entirely with attachments, without having to download to view it..... Counter productive..

  14. I need the ability to add signature to documents and Excel files easily with out some sort of account subscription or hassle.

    I need to be able to have people sign off on hours. This needs to be easily done without a subscription process and emailing and downloading documents back and forth. The documentation should be allowed in Excel, Word and Acrobat. Signatures are a pain now and this needs to be and should be a mobile friendly option that is easily allowed.

  16. 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

  17. When navigating files within the app, right mouseclick should only go one step back, not back to main menu.

    It's very frustrating that right clicking brings you back to the main menu, not the previous folder in the directory.

  18. 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.

  20. Ability to see a previous version of file before edit.

    The ability to see previous version of an edited excel or word document. Basically archive past versions of the document. In case team members make mistakes, sabotage a current project.
