  3. Show also Recent folders under Recent, so we can easy shift between meetings folders, chat etc.

    Make navigation easier for users by also showing the most recent accessed folders under recent. This way you can easily access another file in the same folder.

  5. Allow Owners to Set Permissions for Folders under Teams and Channels "Files"

    I have a classroom Teams Channel where I have created folders (under "Files") for each individual student. I want them to be able to upload documents (handwritten quiz answers, etc) to their folder without other students having the ability to see it. I would like to set permissions on each folder so that only the student and instructors have access.

  7. picture upload size reduction

    as a teacher i would appreciate if file size reduction would be possible for my students during file-upload via the Handy app.
    they take Pictures of their assignments und upload via their Handy way too big pics.
    compareable with sending pics with the email app.

  8. General > Files > New Options

    I use an external document system on a local server due to the fact we work with Official-Sensitive documentation.

    Would be great to work in Teams for my whole project where I can add links to O-S documents in the local document server. Non O-S documents can be managed via sharePoint and and O-S documents can sit on another server. As I currently see things this may require a 'Shortcut' option when selecting the 'New' option.

    As I'm new to Teams and starting to work on Planner these shortcuts can be really useful.

  11. Have folders Within channels listed by date, recent,etc, without effect to other users

    I like the folders sequenced one way, but the listing arrangement is always changing without reason. Nothing added for days, yet everytime i enter a channel the sequence is different than last time. It is frustrating never knowing where to tap, and quite often the list refreshes as my finger appraises approaches the screen, making me open the wrong folder way to often

  12. Add People to File

    When sharing a file in a chat conversation, in order to send that file to another individual in Teams I have to create a hyperlink from the gigantic link generated in Teams for that file. It would be nice to have a "Sent to Chat" option that allowed you to select the user and then make that file visible in the chat I have with that other person, as if I had also uploaded it to them. This would be ideal for things like editing a document, sending to a friend for proof reading, and then sending to the boss…

  13. Integrate MS Teams with Box Sync

    We would like to be able to have the files which we upload in Teams, be automatically sent over to a Box folder to avoid having to upload the same documents in two systems (as we are a team who uses both).

  14. Hi there I am still confused about doc upload and link with sharepoint/workspace- seems now to be 2 doc locations

    Why I can’t combine an existing workspace with teams that doc uploads in teams are in the right folder of workspace? The uploads via team seems to be stored in a different channel related folder?...

  19. Allow the ability to add a document library from an existing OneDrive.

    You have the ability to add a document library from an existing Google Drive or Dropbox but have left out the ability to add one from an existing OneDrive. If migrations from a OneDrive to a SharePoint site was better integrated I would get this decision but currently you are not even supporting your own products.
