  1. make it easier to create links to existing files in other Teams

    When clicking on the paper clip icon for attachments in a channel conversation, as a user I would like to be able to add a link rather than a copy of the file. The purpose of working on shared files is to avoid duplicates!
    As an example, a colleague and I are having a conversation in one Team channel about a document that both of us have access to in another Team. Having recently worked on the file, it appears in my recent list, but if I attach it, I only get the option to upload a copy. By default,…

  2. Non-Editable Files

    In the Files tab, there should be a way to create non-editable folders other than the original Class Materials folder. If that folder is deleted, there is not a way to create another non-editable folder.

  3. Make the download of files from the windows app as fast as that from the browser.

    When I download my team files from the windows app, it is very slow and unstable.
    When I download them from chrome browser, it is very fast.
    Please make it fast in the windows app as well.

    Also, please add a download progress to check within the app.

  7. After watching video, when I click back, it goes back to main file. It is very inconvenience because I want it back to folders.

    After watching a video in a folder, when I click back, It goes back to main file. Then I need to click folders and folders again to get back to the folder I want to watch video. Please fix that problem.

  8. accessing files

    How can I access files from an actual meeting? Right now, I have to minimize the meeting, go to my calendar, click on the meeting, and access the files that way. Why can't I access them from inside the meeting?

  9. Tranport any downloaded files and recorded meeting in another channel if the main one is deleted

    This year, my classmates decided to suggest that it's better to record the meeting to recall information, so one day we had chemistry, the meeting was indeed recorded, but I forgot to download it, then our principle deleted every channel except for the general one, I would appreciate it if you give the option to where to put the files and recorded meetings when trying to delete a channel
    Thank you 💜

  10. Move files into folders within iPad

    In Teams for iPad I am unable to move a file into a folder. It appears to me, that I cannot copy a file either even though copy appears as an option. I do not want to be stuck to my desk. I want to roam the classroom. The iPad allows me the flexibility. Teams does not.

  14. Tile view (permanent Setting)

    I want to be able to set this view for my students so they can find files more easily and it looks more friendly. With this feature, they can see the name of the file AND the picture of the file. It would be even better if we could change the color of the files and have some more customize features! :)

  16. You should show a Dialog Box before click to download a recording

    When an user needs to download a file, application teams does not show a dialog to inform the download is started. It is really necessary to show a dialog because the user is waiting an answer to know and he is focused in that point where he did click.

  19. Returning to a document

    When working on a doc in Files, if I go to another tab, eg to respond to a message, I have to open the document all over again. I'd like to be able to return to the document I am working on easily - a backspace? Return to document option on a button? 'Recent documents' option under files, would be ok too.
