  3. Cloud editing by the main users of files that are encrypted (password-protected)

    My team of 6 is required to constantly update a file (with sensitive information) with 15 viewers who will constantly retrieve information from the file. Cloud editing on an encrypted file (edit) on the Teams cloud would be really great.

    Context: Microsoft files have a general tools, when prompted on the location to save the file, that encrypts the file with 2 passwords. The 1st to open the file, the 2nd to modify the file.
    Viewers of the file will be able to open the file as a "read only" file whereas the author of the file will have both…

  4. I'm wondering why it's not possible to save documents directly into the Files section on Teams from Onedrive?

    I have a Onedrive Folder where I keep my class materials and I would like to be able to share some of these materials with my learners. However, when I try to do this, there doesn't seem to be any simple way of uploading documents into the Files section of Teams from Onedrive.

  5. Allow you to attach a document to an email straight from teams

    It would be useful if you could attach a file to an email straight from Teams rather than having to download it first. I sometimes have to send things to colleagues outside of the team.

  6. One Drive and Teams File Hierarchy

    The folder hierarchy between One Drive and Teams needs to be mirrored. Class A's files should appear identical without extra default folders.

    One Drive class default: Class Files, Class Materials, Documents, Student Work.
    Same class Files default in Teams: General, Class Materials.

    Users should make folders on their own. And be able to make them read only if they chose. Too many defaults.

  7. Direct Copy document from Outlook to teams

    Copy file directly from outlook to teams site. It will be helpful and easier to work in teams when received files in outlook.

  8. It would be nice if we can see the evolution of the onenote files like the submitted word-files.

  10. Online files

    When I work in online files (i.e. word/excel, etc), some of the formatting that shows up in the regular desktop version DOES NOT show in the online version. The only way to view the full formatting is to click edit in word. I have gotten feedback that this is frustrating. Will all the formatting ever show up in just the online version without having to click edit in word?

  11. Keep file links even when it is moved into a different folder

    Currently, files posted in conversation appear in the File tab. But any attempt at organising the files into folders will disable the link. This is very inconvenient. As long as the file remains in the channel, it should still be active.

  12. seperate file areas for classes

    when creating a new class team, withing the files section there should be a folder that the student has access to along with the teacher but no one else, similar to the onen note sections, as currently we have teachers creating a team for the notebook and then manually creating a folder structure and sharing folders for their personal onedrive

  13. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. replace files a la SharePoint

    In MS Teams you cannot replace a folder, only a file.
    Why not move like in SharePoint. Hold, drag and place.

  18. upload files into buckets from the desktop app

    In a bucket click on add new task then under add attachment the only option is to do link or SharePoint. No option to get the file from some place on the computer. It is not available on Mac or Win.

  20. One-click creation of new file in a chat

    I would like the ability to create a new shared file in a chat with one click, like you can from the portal "front page" or in a channel.

    As of now , you have to pick a document from you Onedrive.
