  2. Add student and assignment name to Files uploaded by a student

    When a student uploads a file in Teams, the file keeps the random filename my student created. In many cases this is image.jpg or something like that. When you download the file, you end up with hundred of files with meaningless names. My students are 11, and they frequently forget to write their names.

    With turnitin.com, when you download student work, the account name of the student is automatically appended to the file name.

    It would be great if some kind of id information was appended to the filename so you could sort it easily.

    Also, it woud be nice…

  3. Share notebook pages easier

    I was woking with my team and we all came up with an assignment for the students. We were not able to give eachother the page to add to our notebook. You either had to copy the link or add it to a shared notebook and then move it again. It is very difficult to move and share pages with collegues. Please help us promote working as a team and make this an easier task!

  5. MS teams needs to upgrade it's app and include features like assignments tab, classroom material, etc.

    I use MS teams on my phone as I don't have pc. I'm not able to access the assignments tab, classroom room material, etc. Please update the app with all these features as not every student can afford a pc.

  7. Add notification to files

    This application provide a great audio and video quality during a meeting but it also depends on your internet connection. There is just a problem with this application, which is the lack of notification. It only notifies you of a schedule meeting and chats. But it would be much better if the Microsoft teams notify you if something have been added to the file section in a team.

  10. Private HIDDEN Folder for Teachers Only

    In files, there's a "Class Materials" folder that is a read-only folder. This folder is visible to all members of a channel.

    I want to request another shared folder that is private under "Class Materials" with the ability to view, read, and edit by teachers only. This folder should be HIDDEN from all students and only visible to teachers.

  11. Universal "Files" Tab that sorts files by Channel

    Each Channel has its own Files tab. Sometimes you're looking for a particular file but you don't remember which channel it's in. There's no ability to search a File name in all channels. I propose a single "Files" tab that has headings for each Channel and tools to filter search results.

  13. Links don't work in HTML viewer

    For simple .html files that have been uploaded to the Files tab in a channel, after one clicks on the .html file and opens it in the Teams HTML viewer, clicking on links in the HTML page turns the HTML page white instead of taking one to the link's intended destination. This happens when using the "Open in SharePoint" option too. One is forced to always download the file and open it in a browser directly from the local file system. This is very inconvenient.

  14. It would be helpful if the downloading files show up in the files section.

    When I download videos of my classes, it doesn't show up in the files section although it is downloading in the background. It would become a nice feature if MS teams can have a downloading files section where it shows the downloading files and estimated time.

  18. Sorting Files In The Teams Based on The Date Modified or Created

    Whenever I open the files for a particular class, it is always sorted in alphabetical order. It would be better if there is an option for sorting based on the date modified or the date created

  20. Link Tabs across multiple teams

    Link tabs across different Teams. For example, if I have a Precalculus Per 1, Precalculus Per 2 and Precalculus Per 3, I want to add a "Chapter 7" tab to all 3 with the same contents. Provide an option to add the tab to another team as well. After adding it as a shared tab, all files uploaded there will run across all teams.
