  1. Can we please bring back ADD NEW FILE for students!!!

    BEFORE, Students AND Teachers were able to ADD NEW FILE, choosing Word, PPT, or Excel. Now, only teachers can. This poses a problem for students because they would have to leave Office 365, and create a new document, save it, and then go back to Teams, and then upload it. Please bring this old feature back.

  2. Allow text highlighting/copy and paste from OneDrive files viewed in Teams

    When I choose Files on the far left menu, and choose a file to view, I cannot highlight text in it and copy and paste it unless I choose one of the Edit options. We would like our team members to be able to copy and paste from this view without accidentally deleting or changing something. Is it possible to add the capability of highlighting text when you are just viewing the document, without having to switch to an editable version?

  4. Remove the giant splash screen in Conversations and Files

    After I've used Teams once, I get that you have Conversations in the conversations space, and that you upload Files in the Files space... PLEASE remove the giant splash screens that invite the user to do that in the entire visible space once there are any files or conversations that exist. Its wastes screen real estate and is very obnoxious.

  5. Locked Documents

    For some reason, the same file was uploaded twice; however, Teams won't allow me to delete either file, nor will it allow me to rename either file, because they are supposedly "locked", even though I'm using the same account and email address. It's incredibly frustrating, especially when my peers need to comment on my work.

  6. Time on files

    It would be better if in files when we upload something, it should say the exact time that we upload that, no like 1 hour ago, etc..
    it helps the teacher see if the student upload the work in time

  8. Support Powerpoint (macro-enabled) show

    Please add support for Powerpoint (macro-enabled) show!
    I was stunned to discover that MS Teams does not support these Powerpoint files...
    As a teacher, I prefer to make ppsm files available to my students (I use Multiple Choice and True/False and TOGlic add-in to enrich my ppts).
    Please, would you consider adding support for ppsm? I guess other teacher would also like to see this...?
    THANKS!!

  10. share attachment

    the abiliy to share a file directly into a conversation stream as an attachment rather than sending to someone directly. You could also include the function to email attachments directly to the team steam.

    I often search for teaching resources on my android phone. If. Find one, I would like to download and share directly into a feed. Rather than uploading it and it getting lost amongst the others. All files shared this way should be stored in the team files area.

  12. Open Office File in Full Application

    Using the Mac Teams app, I'd like to open a file in an Office application locally rather than have it open using the Online app. My boss runs a Windows device and he doesn't have the same problem, so I think that it only needs to be rolled out on the Mac app.

  13. Tagging files in chat

    Make it easier for your team to know what specifik file you're talking about, by tagging them in the chat. Perhaps by using #filename.doc or /filename.exc

  14. List Members / Channels / Bots (whatever those are) on the landing page with Conversations / Files / OneNote

    Why do we have to click on the team name to find team members? Why isn't that tab just under the team name in the first place? There is no logical instructions on how to get back to the original Teams landing page (Conversations / Files / Notebook) either. Confusing. See attached for visual reference of what I am asking.

    No one knows what Bots are either...

  16. right click/ellipsis to send a copy of a OneDrive file in a Teams drive

    THere are quite a few steps involved in making a file available to a class in Teams. At the moments its just easier to email! If staff could just 'right click' or use the ellipsis to 'send to (a specific team, from the available list)' that would make sharing much easier. #MIEexpert

  17. Dedicated/Quicker access to Files tab

    Collaboration happens on everything at some point in Teams, but often I just need to access the documents. I need a quicker way to get to the Files tab (and no, I'm not going to sync the whole thing to my desktop via OneDrive).

    I'd like to suggest adding another column to the Teams window, so that there would be one column for Conversations, and one column for Files. This would also allow for a level of multitasking that is currently not available in Teams.

  18. Simple file upload API

    I'd like a simple API endpoint that I can just PUT a file to and have it added (or updated) to the team.

    The use case is that I have a diagram that is updated once an hour that contains some information relevant to a project.

    Currently that file is emailed to the relevant people.

    I want to upload that file automatically into teams without having to use the full blown sharepointAPI so that it's available for all team members.

    Using the sharepoint API is undesirable because it needs my own credentials to create the bearer token needed for the…
