  1. send folders to teachers

    If you want to send a folder to a teacher it doesn't work(it just opens and you need to send them one by one). so why not instead just make an option of sending a folder.
    This would be easier than to convert a folder into a zip file.

  2. Files posted in the Conversations tab accumulate to one folder or place

    It would be easier to be able to find things that were shared and uploaded to the Conversations tab if it was attached to a folder. Then we could easily and go through the folder to find a document that was shared early in the Conversation feed.

  3. Moving files within a Channel to a Folder or other breaks the Conversation link post

    When you move a file that you have announced through a Conversation post, the link breaks on the conversation page. Given I make announcements to my Team when I've posted something in my channel. This breakage has created confusion when the team are trying to open the file it says it doesn't exist.

  5. Make files unvisible

    It would be great that we can make files or folders unvisible for the students. In this way we can prepare our environment without that students see files they may not see yet.

  7. Unpublish/Pulish Function in Files section of Microsoft Teams

    It would be great if there could be the ability to upload mulitple documednts into the Files section of Teams but have them hidden or unpublished to students until they are required.

    This would assist in setting up all of my folders for various topics but not acutally giveing the students viewing access until neccessary.

    For example, with my VCE students, I like to give them practice assessments/exams and then once theyve completed it, I provide them with modeled answers. It would be great to have all of the documents already in Files, but pick and choose which ones are…

  8. user and file management

    I need a way to make the files in teams only readable. I don't always want members to be able to modify the files in teams.

  9. When creating a ClassTeam. Make a personal Folder for each student.

    There should be a personal Folder in Files shared with each individual student for collaboration with the teachers.

  11. 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

  12. Files should be divided by team!

    Files should be divided by team! Why can't I organize my files based on the team they're associated with?

  16. 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.

  17. 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...

  19. 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
