  1. Preview Facility in MS Forms Upload file option

    When we connect MS Forms with MS Teams to collect survey, feedback or any kind of submission from students wherein students upload their files (doc, pdf, excel, etc.) a preview facility will be helpful after file upload action. It will help students to ensure that they have uploaded the correct document/file before actually doing the final submission on MS Forms. At present MS Forms has no preview Facility given with File upload option.

  2. Allow us to delete items (files) in the share screen for general meetings.

    Allow us to delete the numerous files listed in the share screen for general meeting (I'm not referring to chats).

  3. Upload files to multiple channels at the same time

    When posting a message please allow us to upload a file to multiple channels.
    Currently if you attach a file to a message you can only post it to one channel. Many teachers are responsible for multiple classes in the same grade. Having to go and upload a file to each team and channel one by one is very time consuming.

  4. Let .pdf presentations to be shared in Teams (currently Powerpoint only is supported)!

    Hi,

    I use .pdf slides (written in LaTeX, lots of equations, tables etc.) in my classrooms, yet I cannot share them because only Powerpoint is supported, so far. It would be great to make .pdf presentations shareable in Teams.

    great news!  ·  Lauren Kuan responded

    I’m very happy to announce that the Class Materials folder is now available on iOS and Android devices! Go to the Microsoft Teams app to now see the Class Materials folder.

  7. Increase the default tab length on "Name" in the files section

    In the files section of a team, there is a list of files similar to the normal windows file explorer, with 3 tabs, "Name", "Modified" and "Modified by". I often have to make the length of the "Name" tab longer so that the full names of files are visible. By default, the total combined length of the 3 tabs doesn't come close to taking up the whole page.

  8. Inconvenience with file previewing

    Whenever I preview a file from the 'Files' section in any team and I decide to preview another file it resets me to the general files folder. In my opinion this creates major inconvenience. Instead when one closes the file it should lead the user to the selected files folder.
    Thanks for your customer care.

  9. Add an option to always open documents in desktop app

    By default Teams opens all word/excel/powerpoint documents using the embedded editor within Teams. The thing is these embedded editors are quite unstable and tend to break things if someone is editing with the desktop app at the same time. For this reason we never use the embedded editors and always use the desktop apps.

    It would be so much better if there was an option to make this the default thing whenever I open a document, rather than having to first open in the Teams embedded editor and then click on the "Open in desktop app" button, especially since the…

  11. Concerns regarding ownership and downloading of a video

    As students of the university, we cannot download our recorded video lectures from the channel, as the only owner can download it unless the instructor makes us owner (which teachers don't prefer as students can potentially delete them, and loss of data)
    so we suggest, students can have access to download lectures but not delete them. Highly Needed, waiting from last bench of the class.

  12. Sorting Assignments - More options needed

    I would like to be able to have assignments appear in an order of my choosing. Being able to group them under a unit or topic would also be important.

  13. show the file path in Teams when you search for a document

    When you search for a document, it would be helpful to see the file path somewhere so you can find it directly the next time.

  17. Notification on file upload.

    Hello,
    In our school, they upload class notes and presentations almost every day. Our teachers may forget to notify us that these have been uploaded as they have to handle so many grades of students. We may even miss notes some times. Therefore, I request you to add a feature in which both students and teachers can be notified when a file gets uploaded in a certain channel.

  18. Hello, it would be great if you could add an indicator for downloading progress.

    This program is missing an indicator that shows us how the download is progressing when we are downloading files from MS Teams.
    Another feature that would be of great help is if MS Teams can give us a message if we are downloading files that we already downloaded since there is so many class materials and videos.

  19. Posting across channels with attachments

    The option to post on multiple channels is awesome! I wish there could be a way to attach a file and share it across multiple channels. Is that a future possibility? Would really help out the teachers at our school! OR is there an alternative way to share the same content (with attachments) across multiple channels and only posting once?
