  4. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Image view in forms

    In Teams Assignments with form quiz with images.

    This would be in teams assignments via forms. When a quiz is made in forms and taken on Teams, when a question has an image, it would be great if the image could be enlarged by clicking on it. Right now depending on the the image size and what computer the students use, they can either see it, download it to see it, or not enlarge it.

    Thank you

  10. add a checklist feature to the excel embedded files

    Excel is often used to keep a track of calls/lists etc. You can add a check box but this doesn't appear in the embedded file but only on the desktop app version. Opening it each time wastes time so I would like to see this included in the files opened within teams

  11. Add file count to folders in MS Team just like in OneDrive

    We use OneDrive and MSTeams both when colaborating. I noticed some key files were missing after uploading a whole folder to Teams. A file count in Teams would be really helpful to spot a difference. The files were always Excel sheets btw.

  13. Password Protection of folders

    Is there a way that we can add a password to a folder so that only certain people can access the materials?
    As we are communicating to more and more people through Teams, including parents and students, it would be a good idea to be able to restrict access to certain information to make sure that people are not looking at things that they shouldn't!
    This is particularly important at the moment, as many people are sharing reports and proof-reading each other's comments and we don't want these documents to be read by parents or students before we are ready…

  17. Class Document Library

    The class notebook within OneNote is a useful idea, and I would like to see something similar to automatically configure permissions for a document library.

    In other words, there would be folders that are editable by both teachers and students (already exists), folders that are editable by teachers and viewable by students (already exists but it is kind of a hack because it does not actually reside within the Team file share and does not sync along with it), folders that are editable by teachers and not viewable by students, and personal folders for each student that the teacher can…

  18. Teacher Request that for video uploaded assign some owner permissions like 1) View only 2) Can not download or download for confidentiality

    URGENT AND IMPORTANT

    Being Professor, I Request that Teams Microsoft platform should assign some owner permissions like 1) View only 2) Can not download or download for uploading TEACHING VIDEO/DOCUMENTS for confidentiality of every video/documents uploaded.

    This is required to stop illegal transmission of video among others except teams members. Such permission should be asked by software every time before uploading any type of documents or video file by owner. This is specially helpful for confidentiality TEACHING VIDEO file uploaded among team members.

    Please take this seriously and add such permission features in Teams Microsoft software specially at the earliest…

  19. Jumping Files

    When in files and going back, it jumps back to the start or to another folder. Not just back a page.
