  1. keeping files organized by date form instead of having to sort through ascending order.

    File organization by date instead of having to sort through ascending order. Microsoft Team will not hold the ascending order for more than a few minutes. Any way to enhance the feature to sort one time.

  2. Conversation button needs to be available in all channels when accessing a file

    Currently when you deeplink to a file from chat you do not see the 'Conversation' button in the top navigation. When going there from files or a post, the button is there. Can we make that consistent?

  3. Allowing the edit of PDFs in a team chat.

    Allowing a team to edit PDFs. I know there seems to be a common theme of only using Microsoft applications, but this is a necessity in order to deem Teams as a dire need. It would be helpful to be able to conduct a meeting and everyone make comments on the one PDF document.

  5. Move Files from Within Teams

    Currently the only way to move a file already in Teams even to a new folder in the same channel forces you to sign into Sharepoint and then go to Documents page of site. The ability to copy, move within the same channel and or another channel and team needs to be simplified and able to be done within Teams.

  6. Allow users to forward and share files between p2p chats

    Add a "transfer file" function item. After receiving the P2P file, you can easily transfer this file to users in the same organization.

    No need to go through "download", and then "append" the file method will be very troublesome .

  7. Make default view on folder level possible

    It would be very helpful if it were possible to set a default view on folder level in Teams, instead of only on library level.

    The problem: Up to now, in each channel, the tab "file" has to use the same default view, which is determined by the library of the Teams the channel belongs to.
    But within one Teams, each channel focuses on different topics, therefore its files have different metadata. We would like to offer a standard view for each tab showing different metadata. Therefore we need the possibility to set default view for each single folder within…

  8. Submit multiple images at once

    When adding work to an assignment it would be useful to add multiple images/files at once instead of "adding work" five times

  11. i would recommend developer tab on the microsoft word attachment located in files

    I would like to add a reusable template to add to conversations with drop down menus for quick responses. My team mates and I are currently using Teams to create a paperless inspection process for our urban forestry inspectors.

  12. Sheet tabs keep switching places in excel file

    When editing an excel workbook containing multiple sheets in Teams. The sheet tabs keep switching places. It seems the sheet with most recent edits is moved automatically to the front of the line. This is frustrating because in files with many tabs, you have to spend a lot of time finding that one specific tab you're searching for. This is especially frustrating when collaborating on a file, as you don't always know what your team member has been editing.

  13. Create a shortcut to One drive files for sharing in other teams

    We have a one drive company repository for things like Partners, Education, Prospects etc. It has a lot of folders and quite deep in structure. In Teams this appears in the Files Tab under our Australia Team. But we also have smaller Business Development teams with only a few team members but we still want to use the file in the Main Australia Teams One drive. Could we have the ability to create a shortcut to a folder in say Australia\Prospects\Current Prospect\Prospect ABC and place it in files section of a channel within the Brisbane Team. We have a lot…

  14. Ability to directly share files copied from a folder via pasting it in the message box

    It would be great if Teams can allow a feature (already present in Skype for Business) to paste files directly into the message box.

    Currently one has to click on the files icon and then search the location on the hard drive to attach files.

  15. Add a storage URL link to FILES tab to easily groups and locate files frequently used by the group.

    It is nice to have to link a directory tree or actual file link from a cloud storage directly to the FILES tab in its directory structure to group files scattered around different SharePoint sites where the team can easily locate and follow and to get the latest updated file.

  17. Assignments: Add Work on Mobile to include from Camera

    At present, Adding Work from a mobile device and Inserting a File from the Camera allows only Photo and Video options.

    Inserting a photo into a Chat, however, allows for "scanning" document type (Photo, Document, Whiteboard, Business Card).

    In the education environment we're having to teach students how to insert into OneNote (best for back and forth with notes from a teacher), or scan to OneDrive and then attach to "My Work" from OneDrive.

    Attaching to "My Work" from a mobile device should provide the full document detection capabilities of Office Lens, without need to go to any other app.…

  18. Show version history and Modified/modified by in the files area of personal/group chats, or make them consistent between users in OneDrive

    Scenario:
    A coworker shared 2 files in a Teams chat. She shows BOTH these files in her OneDrive in a "Telework" folder, but I see one in her "Telework" & the other in "Microsoft Teams Chat Files".

    Why do we see different paths? What determines where in OneDrive to store files shared in Teams chats? We need to be able to tell users where to look, since version history and modified info is not shown in the Teams file area.

  19. 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.
