  2. Change the default download location of MS Teams files.

    Because of Android 11's restriction to access the Android/Data folder, where the files from MS Teams are downloaded, I suggest for you to change the default download location of the MS Teams files. For me, it is not necessary where we have an option to manually change the default download location of our choice. I just need for us to be able to access the files freely. Thank you very much. Any replies and maybe updates upon this matter will be highly appreciated. Thanks

  4. Create a user-personal organizer(?)

    I am a student attending college online. Sometimes I like to store the class recordings, when I feel like it includes something important or includes something that I might want to go through again later in time. However it is quite tedious sometimes to have to download every recording after the class has ended and store them in my laptop (which takes up alottt of space istg). Perhaps MS Teams could allow creation of a private folder within the app where the user can store all the important recordings/ files/pictures from different classes? Like a mini organizer perhaps.

    Also, sometimes…

  8. Notification on file upload.

    Hello,
    In our school, they upload class notes and presentations almost every day. Our teachers may forget to notify us that these have been uploaded as they have to handle so many grades of students. We may even miss notes some times. Therefore, I request you to add a feature in which both students and teachers can be notified when a file gets uploaded in a certain channel.

  9. Preview Facility in MS Forms Upload file option

    When we connect MS Forms with MS Teams to collect survey, feedback or any kind of submission from students wherein students upload their files (doc, pdf, excel, etc.) a preview facility will be helpful after file upload action. It will help students to ensure that they have uploaded the correct document/file before actually doing the final submission on MS Forms. At present MS Forms has no preview Facility given with File upload option.

  10. Teacher only files

    I want to be able to add files or class materials that students CANNOT see. Then move to a section they can see when it is time - great for preparing classes. Already a thing in One Note!

  11. Add an option to always open documents in desktop app

    By default Teams opens all word/excel/powerpoint documents using the embedded editor within Teams. The thing is these embedded editors are quite unstable and tend to break things if someone is editing with the desktop app at the same time. For this reason we never use the embedded editors and always use the desktop apps.

    It would be so much better if there was an option to make this the default thing whenever I open a document, rather than having to first open in the Teams embedded editor and then click on the "Open in desktop app" button, especially since the…

  15. Concerns regarding ownership and downloading of a video

    As students of the university, we cannot download our recorded video lectures from the channel, as the only owner can download it unless the instructor makes us owner (which teachers don't prefer as students can potentially delete them, and loss of data)
    so we suggest, students can have access to download lectures but not delete them. Highly Needed, waiting from last bench of the class.

  19. Addition of a speed feature (alike youtube) in MS TEAMS for videos.

    The recorded lectures uploaded in class materials are sometimes quite slow , so the speed feature could help us cover it fast . And even for the moments when one revises the chapters , the speed feature can help , watching the video at 1.25x or 1.5x speed.

  20. Please, allow to set the order of files attached to an assignment.

    If students attach 2 or more files to their assignment when turning in it, there's no way to set the order of them. It is set by default to the time of submission. When I, as a teacher, want to review those files, I cannot change it to be in alphabetical order, much more logical, or any other order.
