  1. The filename of Not Shared with Everyone Onedrive documents ar

    The filenames of 'Not Shared with Everyone' Onedrive documents are listed in the recent files section. This is convenient, but could a setting be added to adjust that visibility? I can imagine situations where someone is presenting a workflow process to a larger team and clicks files button and the name of an unshared document expose some unfortunate truth that was intended to be confidential without even realizing.

  2. Limit access to a folder (and the files within) to specific members of a team

    In some circumstances, there is data pertinent to the team's activities but the data contains sensitive information that should only be viewed by members with more seniority.

    It would be nice in a circumstance like this to create a folder and be able to adjust permissions to limit who can access and who can edit.

  4. Are you going to allow searching within files (PDF's for example) so that the search box is universal and not only looking for commentary?

  7. Allow users to create a link to a folder from a conversation

    At the moment from within a conversation I seem to only be able to link to a file that is held in the files area of a channel in Teams. I would like to be able to put a link in to a folder. For example you might have several files from a presentation that you want to share, and you have grouped these into a folder within Teams

  8. Improve Google Drive integration

    Improve the Google Drive integration. Often we can't open a Google Drive file within Teams, even if someone (such as myself) has posted it there, and shared it. Please make this work!

  11. 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.

  12. Archiving Groups

    My manager accidentally disbanded our group/team. Now all the conversation and files we had uploaded are all gone. Being able to archive that info and to restore or merge it to another group would be very helpful.

  13. computer at work

    My personal files are made from home PCs that appear on the computer at work.
    I find it hard to control personal files and shared files.
    I think there should be a symbol or a prominent display option on the menu bar.

  15. Files Shared with you on One Drive

    Before we found out about Microsoft Teams, my teammate shared a One Drive folder with all the members of our team so that we can share and store our deliverables in a centralized storage.

    After we found out about Microsoft Team, we wanted to still be able to access the shared One Drive within Microsoft Team so that we will not need to work with 2 separate platforms to store our deliverables.

  17. Option to load a FILE to multiple TEAMS at one time istead of repeating the process again and again.

    A lot of wasted time reposting the same information to multiple TEAMS (aka Classes) Should have option to click to post files to multiple TEAMS (or classes) with a simple click.

  20. Time on files

    It would be better if in files when we upload something, it should say the exact time that we upload that, no like 1 hour ago, etc..
    it helps the teacher see if the student upload the work in time
