  1. Allow users to always "Open in App" for files

    It is usually insufficient to just open a file in Teams. For example, when you need to edit a complicated Excel spread sheet or a Word document, you would prefer to do it in the actual Office app.

    Currently in order to open the files in App, you have to either (1) open the file in Teams then chose "Open in App", or click the three dots next to the file and choose "Open" -> "Open in app". This is inconvenient. Please allow an option to "Always open in app" for certain types of files.

  2. R

    We keep running into the issue of needing to lock spreadsheets or tabs within spreadsheets, but not having the ability to do so in Teams. Having too many people with editing access creates a lot of room for errors to occur as people accidentally edit or edit on purpose when they shouldn't be.

  4. This is the worst platform. It is not intuitive. I cannot delete items I myself have put in teams and other complaints I will log elsewhere

    Have a month view for the calendar, be able to completely delete items that you yourself have created and saved but do not want on TEAMS as they may be work sensitive, it si ridiculous I cannot delete these items and yes I have checked online how to do it but my employer has locked it I hate this platform.

  5. Please show an option of making PDF in MS Teams only by selecting the files.

    In my class, students are really are not able to make PDFs. Mostly students are sending their work without making PDF and my teacher always scolds students that why they haven't made their work in PDF not PPT!!! Students do not want to listen to the scolds of the teacher. Please!!!

  8. Do not allow students/attendees the ability to modify files.

    Instead of having attendees being able to edit and modify files uploaded in the files section, have them have to download and then edit them.

  9. Change the video player for the files uploaded on the files section of any Team

    What I want to say is that when I try to play the video lectures uploaded by my professor sometimes I need to go back 5 seconds in the video or I want to go 5 seconds ahead
    But the existing media player is very old fashioned with very less features
    Plzz try to introduce this feature as soon as possible

  10. Hide Resources in Teams

    I would like to build up resources in Teams, specifically Class Materials, but I don't want students to be able to view the documents until I allow it. Is there any way to "hide" the documents, specifically in Class Materials?

  12. Uneditable materials available in every channels created

    As teachers, we organize our information according to units, periods, subjects of study. Students need to have a way to access materials for each unit of study that doesn't include always going back to the general tab to find those materials. These materials should be subject to the unit of study and easily accessible for teachers and students. Stop making this harder than what it already is...meaning, there are too many key strokes.

    Please consider allowing the option to upload documents from OneDrive in the FILES tab. Currently end users can attach a OneDrive document from assignments by going to "add Resources" OneDrive.

  20. I noticed my animations in PowerPoint do not work when viewed in Teams. Is it possible to make that happen?

    I show an image of a tool so the student can think if they know the name of it. When the user clicks, the name of the tool comes in, and then when they click again, the purpose of the tool comes in. But that doesn't work through Teams.
