  3. Choose the local device folder where files are downloaded to from the Teams app.

    It would be useful to be able to change where files from the MS Teams app are downloaded to my local machine. Currently they're being downloaded to the SSD Windows is installed on, rather than the separate "Downloads" folder I designated as my default for other apps, which is on a hard drive. Being able to download files and video presentations to different locations, rather than constantly writing/rewriting (especially to an SSD) and having to move every file to a different folder after download would be extremely useful.

  4. Downloadings list

    A list of what files I've been downloaded recently, and wich shows how much of a download is back. For example, when I download a meeting, the file instantly appears in the selected folder, but I can't play the whole meeting, only the few first minutes (wich has been downloaded until i opened the file). So now, I always have to chek how much MB-s of the files whole size is back.

  5. Adding link to google presentation to class materials

    Hello! I would like to have an option to add links to my Google presentations to the Class materials. I make a Google presentation for each lesson, and I often add things and change them, so converting them to ppt presentation would not help: I would have to upload the new version of the presentation again and again after each change. I am obliged to use MS Teams by my school, but I have been using Google presentation for a long time now and have everything organized on my Google drive. I can send the students a link to a…

  6. Moving Folders into other Folders

    We require the facility to move existing folders into other folders (not just individual files). This would help with organisation of our Team drive.

  9. Hello MS Teams. What i would like to suggest and i think is very helpful is that if only there is an actual download progress to check on.

    Every time i download something from some team channel like a recording video or an image or some document i dont see any download progress anywhere and it's kinda hard to wonder how the download is going or is the download of the file going well. It will be nice to have this feature. Thank you ahead and God bless you.

  10. Files slideshow

    When viewing photos in the Files folder, in both staff and class teams, it would be really useful if the user could view the photos as a slideshow. At the moment, you have to close the photo and reopen the next. It would be so useful to have arrows so that you can navigate between the photos.

  11. Add Playback speed for media files

    It would be great to have the option to either increase or decrease the playback speed of media files that are saved in the Files section of Teams. The build in media player has options for fullscreen and playback resolution, please add a speed option.

  13. Show "Files" directory structure as an indented tree with files below each node

    It is particularly cumbersome and tiring to have to click multiple times to get down and up in the Files structure of a given course to just check the content of two adjacent folders, for example. As on the Mac Finder, we should have the possibility to view "Files" as a directory tree, with the documents listed below their respective folder.

  16. Please give all access to Files through Mobile or Tablet

    Please please please make it an option where when I click into a class in teams, I can go to class materials and see ALL files through mobile or iPad, and not just a few. I don’t have a laptop, and know many others who don’t as well with this same issue, and we need certain files that the teacher says they uploaded in class materials, and we always resort to having to ask other kids to send it through text or email. I beg you. This would make it so much easier instead of only seeing the files through…

  18. recall One Note pages

    There needs to be a way to recall One Note pages as easily as distributing them. When I delete an assignment, I want it to automatically delete any One Note pages that were distributed with the assignment. Or, if I distribute a page to the Class Notebook, there should be an easy way to recall pages from student notebooks. Distributing pages in only a couple of clicks, but there is not option to recall or remove pages without going in to each students' notebook and deleting the pages manually. That is a huge amount of time with 150 student notebooks.

  20. Have a 'Class materials' File in every channel

    Can every channel have a 'Class materials' section. Or can there be an option to tick where students can't edit the document.

    I have each topic set up as a channel on my Teams page and students keep clicking on the files and editing them by mistake- locking the file/ having a class materials in every channel would be a dream!
