  1. add a checklist feature to the excel embedded files

    Excel is often used to keep a track of calls/lists etc. You can add a check box but this doesn't appear in the embedded file but only on the desktop app version. Opening it each time wastes time so I would like to see this included in the files opened within teams

  2. Add file count to folders in MS Team just like in OneDrive

    We use OneDrive and MSTeams both when colaborating. I noticed some key files were missing after uploading a whole folder to Teams. A file count in Teams would be really helpful to spot a difference. The files were always Excel sheets btw.

  4. Password Protection of folders

    Is there a way that we can add a password to a folder so that only certain people can access the materials?
    As we are communicating to more and more people through Teams, including parents and students, it would be a good idea to be able to restrict access to certain information to make sure that people are not looking at things that they shouldn't!
    This is particularly important at the moment, as many people are sharing reports and proof-reading each other's comments and we don't want these documents to be read by parents or students before we are ready…

  7. Class Document Library

    The class notebook within OneNote is a useful idea, and I would like to see something similar to automatically configure permissions for a document library.

    In other words, there would be folders that are editable by both teachers and students (already exists), folders that are editable by teachers and viewable by students (already exists but it is kind of a hack because it does not actually reside within the Team file share and does not sync along with it), folders that are editable by teachers and not viewable by students, and personal folders for each student that the teacher can…

  8. Jumping Files

    When in files and going back, it jumps back to the start or to another folder. Not just back a page.

  9. Handy App für Android verbessern

    Auf dem Handy werden nicht alle Dateien und Aufgaben angezeigt. Viele bekommen nicht mit, dass es Aufgaben gab. Ich würde mir wünschen, dass alle Aufbaben und Dateien auch über das Handy (Android) zu erreichen wären, sodass alle Schüler einen Zugriff auf diese haben.

  11. Ensure that animations still work when presenting in the online application.

    I made a PPT with interactive features (e.g., if students say the wrong option and the presenter clicks on it, the box turns red. If they click on the right option, it turns green.) However, this interactivity only works properly if I open the desktop version of PPT. I find this annoying, since I want to be able to present in the online application, which has a better writing and erasing feature during live presentations.

  12. Hey,

    Hey,

    I suggest you add the "share option" of files in a team's channel to another team's channel.

    e.g: share files of channel titled "activities" in team-1, to channel titled "activities" in team-2. thus, we avoid uploading them again.

    thanks

  13. Folders

    Not all folders are visible in the android app for telephones - you have to be on a computer to access folders and files in use. This means not being able to add photos from a mobile device without emailing youself or accessing info from teachers on a mobile device.

  15. Prepare posts, but then hide them until you want people to see them

    It would be good to prepare a post on teams fully but choose for it to remain hidden until you click to make it visible to all. This would all you to prepare without worrying that students may already do it and then turn up expecting more straight away.

    Related - you could add a timer function here too. If I was 'away' and wanted to set my posts to appear tomorrow so I didn't have to login to do it manually I could set a time that they would be published automatically.

  18. Have separate owners for specific channels within our teams class.

    Our school has a music teacher that has not been granted access to our school teams through IT. I have added a channel for her in our class Team. I want her to be the owner of her channel within my team. She's an owner now but receives a great deal of messaging from my class that she doesn't need.

  19. File Categorizing

    When adding files to a folder, it lists them Z to A by default...the default should be A to Z...or at least have a setting that allows you to select the default categorization of your files.
