  1. Simple file upload API

    I'd like a simple API endpoint that I can just PUT a file to and have it added (or updated) to the team.

    The use case is that I have a diagram that is updated once an hour that contains some information relevant to a project.

    Currently that file is emailed to the relevant people.

    I want to upload that file automatically into teams without having to use the full blown sharepointAPI so that it's available for all team members.

    Using the sharepoint API is undesirable because it needs my own credentials to create the bearer token needed for the…

  3. Make a file in teams editable only by the team owner

    After the team has finished collaborating on a document, there will be times that the owner may want to make the document read only to prevent the team from making unauthorized edits.

  5. Document links in chat attempt to open in browser, should open in Teams.

    Links to documents in Teams chat attempt to open in browser, should open in Teams instead, as navigating manually to the file in Teams (and bypassing the link) works

  7. It would be beneficial to be able to take a document or file from OneDrive and move it /copy it to teams.

    We are unable to take files created on Word or other applications in OneDrive and add them to the files on teams. Currently when we add a file it brings up hard drive. Can we link that to our OneDrive?

  8. Dedicated/Quicker access to Files tab

    Collaboration happens on everything at some point in Teams, but often I just need to access the documents. I need a quicker way to get to the Files tab (and no, I'm not going to sync the whole thing to my desktop via OneDrive).

    I'd like to suggest adding another column to the Teams window, so that there would be one column for Conversations, and one column for Files. This would also allow for a level of multitasking that is currently not available in Teams.

  10. send folders to teachers

    If you want to send a folder to a teacher it doesn't work(it just opens and you need to send them one by one). so why not instead just make an option of sending a folder.
    This would be easier than to convert a folder into a zip file.

  12. Files posted in the Conversations tab accumulate to one folder or place

    It would be easier to be able to find things that were shared and uploaded to the Conversations tab if it was attached to a folder. Then we could easily and go through the folder to find a document that was shared early in the Conversation feed.

  14. Save new office documents to a teams location

    When I go to save an office document I'd like to be able to choose a Team and then a Files tab in which to save.

    Similar to how OneDrive or Sharepoint are listed as save locations; show me a Team icon and then let me choose a team and then a Files tab from that team.

  15. Drop a group of files into an existing folder within a channel

    You should be able to move a selection of files (in a channel) at once into an existing folder in that same Team channel.

  16. Option to stay in Files tab when selecting another channel

    When browsing through the files tab of a channel, you sometimes realise you need to look through other channels to find the files you are looking for. It would be good to be able to browse around the files tab of several channels without having it revert back to the conversations tab each time.

  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. create links in Teams Files

    It is not possible to create a saved Web Link in the Teams view of files but it is possible to create a web Link in the Sharepoint view of Teams Files. When the link is clicked on in Sharepoint, the link works. In the Teams view a link just tries to download a file.

    Could web Links be made to work the same in the Teams view of Files as in the Sharepoint view of the same files.

  20. Link to OneDrive Folder

    Please allow to add OneDrive specific folder to the "File" tab. Since some common teaching materials store in OneDrive / SharePoint document library appear in different teams.
