  1. Allow choice of where to save each file before downloading"

    When user needs to download a file, often the user has a place in mind (other than Downloads) for the file. Allow user to choose to be asked where to save the downloaded file. This will often save steps for many users.

  2. Allow notifications to be sent to students when the teacher posts a comment or file to Teams

    I added my class to Teams and have been adding files and comments. My students are not seeing the comments and files I add, however, because they are not notified when I add something. I would love to have a way to make the default setting to send notifications to members of the group when I comment or post something in Teams.

  4. Option to stay in Files tab when selecting another channel

    When browsing through the files tab of a channel, you sometimes realise you need to look through other channels to find the files you are looking for. It would be good to be able to browse around the files tab of several channels without having it revert back to the conversations tab each time.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow an existing Sharepoint to mapped to the team file tabe

    Our organization works on SharePoint. We like the look of Teams but need files to work directly with SharePoint. While Teams is intended for a wide audience that may not have SharePoint Licenses, i.e. Students in a class, it would be nice to allow Teams creators to link the Files tab to an existing SharePoint or at the very least be able to delete/hide the files tab.

  10. Create private folders for students

    It would be great if when setting up a team it created a private folder for each member of that team. This would be great in secondary schools, so that students could upload their work or here during lessons, you could then go into each folder as an owner of the team, see how students are getting on etc..

    I appreciate this could work as an assignment but I believe there would be greater benefits to students having their own private folder.

    I have set this up manually using SharePoint and changing access permission, students are making great use of…

  13. Hiding folders in class materials

    Hello, We are currently moving at the moment from Moodle to Teams. A lot of our staff are asking about being able to hide folders in teams until they are needed in the class materials section.

    Is this possible?

  14. Add student and assignment name to Files uploaded by a student

    When a student uploads a file in Teams, the file keeps the random filename my student created. In many cases this is image.jpg or something like that. When you download the file, you end up with hundred of files with meaningless names. My students are 11, and they frequently forget to write their names.

    With turnitin.com, when you download student work, the account name of the student is automatically appended to the file name.

    It would be great if some kind of id information was appended to the filename so you could sort it easily.

    Also, it woud be nice…

  17. Sync with Teams Files to Local Machine

    There is a button in SharePoint that will sync a SharePoint folder with a local computer folder using the OneDrive Sync Client. To do this, I have to open Teams > Channel > Files tab > Open with SharePoint > Sign in > Sync > Choose subfolders to sync. Can that button in SharePoint simply be put into Teams?

  18. 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.
