  1. after opening a file, the file tab closes.

    whenever a file, for example, a PowerPoint presentation is opened and then closed, the files tab also closes and we have to go back to it, search for the folder and open it again.

  2. Having a stored files section for teachers

    Is it possible to have a stored files section so folders and files are not achieved when the class is at the end of the year, and students do not have access to see them?

  4. Be able to close documents when looking at an assignment

    If I open a document in an assignment that has been posted in one of my teams occasionally it won't close when I press the close button. It will minimise slightly but not close so I have to click on one of the tabs at the top like posts or files to get out of it. However, this doesn't happen all the time so I don't know if there is something that I am doing which is causing it.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  14. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  19. 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…
