  1. Make a "go back funktion" that takes you back to the previously page you was on. Not like the one on teams that takes you way back.

    When you enter a folder, then another folder, then another folder and then click "back" on teams, it takes you to posts. I didn't ask to get to posts, if i wanted posts i would have clicked posts. I want to get back to the folder that i was in before i pressed on the one that i am in right now.

    Resume:
    Folder 1 --> Folder 2 --> Folder 3 --> "press back" --> posts = not what i asked for.

    Folder 1 --> Folder 2 --> Folder 3 --> "press back" --> Folder 2 = Exactly what i…

  3. Speed up/Slow down for your video player

    Sometimes my teacher posts video lessons. She doesn't edit them, and the lessons are too slow. The files are a little wonky, and usually are around 1 or 2 GB. I would find it helpful if I could watch the video in x1.5 or x2 speed. Other students may find the teacher's videos to be too slow, so a x0.5 or x.75 speed would be good for them as well.

  5. Allow downloads to go to a certain folder or location

    You can change the download location for either a certain class or everything. You could have a "School" folder or a "Science" folder that your downloads would automatically go.

  7. You should be able to drag emails from Outlook to Teams.

    Dragging emails from Outlook to Teams. The workaround is dragging from email to a folder and then from the folder to Teams. That's super clunky.

  8. Be able to search files uploaded in a team

    Sometimes I might not now where a certain file is, so it would be useful to be able to search the name instead of going through each file - especially as it once you open a file, if you close it, it takes you back to the first 'homepage' of files instead of the folder you recently opened.

  10. Folders to organise different groups that I am in.

    I am currently a member of nearly 60 groups and at a glance it is quite hard to see which classes are mine and which ones belong to other teachers in my department.

    It would be good if there was the ability to create folders to organise the different groups that we belong to.

  11. Return to the same file path after closing a file that your opened from Teams

    By default when you open a file without selecting any other option it'll open the file to be viewed within Teams, however when you close this file within teams it goes back to the beginning of the files tab, making you navigate through the entire file path in case you opened the wrong file or wanted to view another file within in the same folder.

  14. Change the default download folder

    It would be very helpful to be able to change the default download folder in the settings. My default download folder is always the desktop and not the folder 'downloads'...

  16. Stay in the same directory as document after I close it

    Currently, when opening a document in a nested directory on closing it we go directly to the home of files tab. I would prefer to stay in the same directory as the document I just closed.

  20. Don't send user back to beginning of Files

    When a user exits out of Files, it sends them back to the "General" page with all of the folders. Instead of this, it would be best if Teams simply exited to the tab in which the currently open file resides
