Hi there, you’ve reached the user feedback site for Microsoft Teams. It’s managed by our Customer Advocacy Team inside Microsoft Teams Engineering led by Karuana Gatimu. Our entire team believes in representing your needs inside our engineering group and we appreciate the time you take to share them with us. Rest assured that a large team of dedicated people read and discuss your feedback!

Here’s how to get your voice heard:
1 — VOTE for existing ideas (this will also subscribe you to the idea’s status updates)
2 — SUBMIT new ideas (Please include only one suggestion per post. Duplicates are merged together.)
3 — RATE the product by clicking the little orange star on this page. This helps us understand our overall standing with users. It will collect your rating every six weeks.
4 — COMMENT in ideas’ threads, which we check regularly

For official product and feature updates we recommend three things:

Stay tuned here: We update our work items monthly
Read our Blog: Official announcements come from our blog at https://aka.ms/TeamsBlog
Review the Roadmap: Our upcoming features can be seen within the Microsoft 365 roadmap site at https://aka.ms/M365Roadmap

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

  1. Files shared in "chat" should work like Files shared in "Teams"


    • Files shared in individual chats should appear under the files tab, both within the conversation and in the blue tab on the side bar.

    • Files shared in individual chats should appear when searched for in the search bar.

    Neither of these things happen. It's inconsistent, counterintuitive, and obnoxious. Please implement.

    I have had this problem too, and trust me I find it not intuitive either.

    I’ve sent this to the Files team and I’m going to find out where this is on the backlog so I can report back to you guys.

    Meanwhile, the workaround is that you have to delete the chat message of which you sent the message.

    Thanks and tweet me @skprufo if you have any questions!
