  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Remove File Upload Limit for Teachers

    I frequently need to share multiple files with my students. In Teams I am limited to 10 files at a time where there is no compelling reason for this to be the case. Can this limit please be removed. If teachers want to limit student uploads, there should be a setting for that.

  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.

  13. Tile view for Photos in Files

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

  15. Add Sync to the Team Option that syncs at the "Document" level

    Instead of adding a sync button in the "files" area and then having to sync each channel, just put a "sync all files" menu option on the Teams option menu. This should sync at the SharePoint "documents" level, this way I get all new added channels.

  16. When creating a new Team, Tabs, Files, etc. should be copied over too. Teachers have mult. sections of same class & need to copy ENTIRE team

    When creating a new Team, tabs, files, etc. should be copied over too. Teachers have mult. sections of SAME class & need to copy ENTIRE team instead of having to recreate the same wheel over and over again.

  17. Move/Place folders inside of other folders

    Is there a way move/place folders inside of other folders? If not, I would like to see this option added. I find it would help with keeping my Team organized as we share/collaborate on files.

  18. Ability to add OneDrive to a Team / Create a shared OneDrive, or OneDrive for Buisiness

    SharePoint has very limited functionality to copy, files and folders, and OneDrive does a better job of managing file and folders.

    I propose the ability to create a shared OneDrive, or be able to link to a OneDrive in a team, and give the team permissions to change, edit, and add to the desired folder.

  19. Deleting obsolete files

    To be able to delete obsolete files from the 'Files' Tab. I have removed these files from Office 365 but they still show in Teams and it clutters the space. It would be nice to be able to delete them off of the list in Teams.

  20. Google Team Drive

    Please add support for Google Team Drives. Currently, we can only see and access files located and shared within the user's Google Drive. Adding support for Google's Team Drives would save us a lot of time.
