  1. Sorting Assignments - More options needed

    I would like to be able to have assignments appear in an order of my choosing. Being able to group them under a unit or topic would also be important.

  2. Downloading status

    It would be great to see a sort of progress bar, showing the percentage of files currently downloaded. When trying to download several podcasts (i.e. more than 1GB), I need to check manually every 2 minutes if the files are finally downloaded.

  3. Refresh Button/Option in Files

    In Teams there isn't an option to refresh the directory you are in - you have to go up a folder and then back into the directory to see updated/added files. Can a refresh button be added (similar to in a Windows file path refresh)?

  5. Create a way to share files into channels for multiple teams.

    For example if I want to share a set of notes to all three of my classes (teams) Is there a way without having to upload it three separate teams.

  7. Slow or fast playback of audio or video files

    I take audio or video recordings of meetings for those who could not make it can catch up.

    I would be useful if Teams' file-sharing supports changing the speed of audio or video playback, eg, 0.25x, 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, and 2x.

    For only these features alone, I think it is better to share videos via YouTube at the moment.

  8. Drag and Drop Files into Folders within a Team

    Teams is the only technology I know of that doesn't allow the user to drag and drop files into folders on the desktop version.

    This would save me lots of time and clicking.

  11. Version history from within Teams

    In SharePoint, when enabled, you can see the version history of a file. At the moment you can open a file from the Teams app in SharePoint and see its version history, but it would be great if you can check it from within the Teams app itself.

  12. Shared OneDrive files should be accessible in Files in the desktop Teams application

    In the Files section of Teams, it would be ideal if the OneDrive files that are accessible could also include the OneDrive files that have been shared with you. Currently, only the user's OneDrive files will appear, but I would like all OneDrive files that have been shared to also appear.

  17. Leaving Files

    When leaving an open file, either by hitting the close or back button, return to the previous place in the file hierarchy rather than to the root folder.

  18. Posibility to add new Document Library

    I want it to be easier to add a new document library in a channel, besides the Files tab. If I click on the plus sign in the files menu, it is only possible to link to an existing document library. I wish that I also could create a new one without having to go to Sharepoint.

    AS in sharepoint, a tile view should be available in files so photos can be previewed without having to toggle back to sharepoint.
