  3. Put "Manage Access" back into Teams->Files->Ellipsis

    Please put back the "Manage access" option in Teams-->Files-->Ellipsis. The option has changed. Manage access is now only available through SharePoint ONLY. It used to be available through the ellipsis in Teams. Now it's an extra few steps to be able to manage access of files from within a team. Please put them back and make this process simpler.

  4. Notify me when somebody has posted a file in Files

    People usually post documents in Files while thinking that everybody knows about it. There is no notification for that and I firmly believe things need to be changed. This notifications will ease the studying process and there are not going to be other forgotten materials to read.

  6. Customise the tile image in files

    Currently in Files (Tile Mode) the folder image is of a folder. Could we have the ability to change the 'folder' image to a customised image? This would make it similar to the 'Teams' page?

  11. Please bring back "Conversation" button for Files

    Until recently, every document in the Files section had a Start Conversation option, which made tagging colleagues and discussing the doc's content very efficient. Now that option is gone.

    Please bring it back.

  13. Instead of increasing the size of the window around a pdf with ctrl + scrollwheel, make it zoom into the pdf.

    Right now, using the scroll wheel when looking at a pdf document, the entire window gets bigger (icons on the left etc.) and the pdf stays the same or gets even smaller. Instead I would like if the window size could be adjusted in the settings and the scroll wheel would zoom into the pdf since I feel it's annoying, always having to use the magnifying glass-function and figuring out the appropriate percentage of zoom. I would really appreciate this feature!

  18. 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…

  20. By providing back buttons when working with files so there is a simple pathway.

    When looking at files in a specific folder in a Teams files it is very frustrating not to have a simple pathway up to the host folder. If the back button is pressed it goes up and you have to follow the pathway down a few folders to get the next file
