  2. separate file storage

    Please give us SEPARATE and reliable file storage - ideally partner up with Dropbox or Moodle.

    Twice now because my institution has not set up TEAMS properly, I have lost ALL my teaching files and assignments because reseting TEAMS means all my data and files are wiped.

    I have really grown to hate TEAMS but my employer insists on a one size fits all policy and so we are not allowed (formally) to use dropbox or Moodle.
    TEAMS does the same thing but it's all linked to user access and if the IT dept get that wrong - teachers and…

  3. Ability to schedule class materials for a future time.

    Just like you are able to schedule assignments, being able to schedule a post of class materials would be very useful.

  4. Exit uploaded files to the last folder and not the files tab

    When you close out of an uploaded file it should take you back to the folder you where browsing instead of the files tab. This would save a lot of time when reviewing class materials, just seems logical and would be more consistent with how file browsing usually works. You can always press the files tab if that's where you want to go.

  5. Please create a parking lot or play list of material to be presented in order.

    we need a Files, videos and presentations parking lot for class materials for virtual classes. Instead of having to pin tabs. Similar to launching platform K-12 used I forgot the name of the platform.

  6. Open multiple files at the same time

    I would like to be able to open more than one file. I don't want to have to close a file to open another one, than go back to the first by closing the later one.

  7. Dates of Notes not in order

    When I list an assignment in Files, the dates are out of order. The students have to scroll around to find the right assignment. I don't understand why this isn't happening already.

  9. Class Materials

    Say I'm in lessons online(on a call), and I need to print something from a team's class materials. I find it very annoying that it's so slow, just to get to one thing! Also, it would be quicker if you could print stuff from the (class materials, files) page instead of having to download them and then print them. I think that is quite important for students like me.

  14. PDF collaboration

    Please allow for collaboration on PDF files directly.
    How is it viable to have to open it in another app, save it as a new PDF and upload again on the Team, EVERY SINGLE TIME you want to modify (highlight, post a comment, add text ...) the file in the slightest???
    I realised that 2 hours worth of editing are just gone simply because I needed to access another file on the app. Also, no warning message says “caution your changes will not be saved (because we didn’t think this was a useful feature to add)”, so you can imagine…

  15. Direct link to file doesn't show where the file is located

    When sharing a file via a link, I can't tell where the file is located - which team? Which folder? Thank you.

  16. SEARCH BAR IN THE FILES SECTION.

    In the beginning, the teams used to contain a search bar in the files section so that was easy to find the files and pdf's but now as it is updated the search bar is removed .This is making a lot off issue to find the files.Please can you put it back.
