    great news!  ·  Lauren Kuan responded

    I’m very happy to announce that the Class Materials folder is now available on iOS and Android devices! Go to the Microsoft Teams app to now see the Class Materials folder.

  3. Uploading files on mobile platforms

    Some teachers are very frustrated at the fact that students cannot upload files because they are working through mobile platforms. I think that this should be a feature, especially since some people won't have access to computers during this time of crisis.

  4. Add a URL LINK In TEAMS, under File>New.

    In Files it is possible to add a word doc, excel, powerpoint, etc. I would like to have a feature that allows me to just add a url link that will take the user straight to a resource on-line or a website.

  6. Link Files tab in a channel to a different document library

    I have created a new channel and I want to keep files in a separate document library for that channel and not a sub-folder of Documents. I am able to add a tab in that channel, but the original Files tab remains. What would be great is to be able to right-click files and link it to the separate document library (not Documents). Alternatively, it would be useful to remove or hide Files so that there is no confusion as to where to find files.Thank you.

  7. Add copy paste function for folders

    Please add function to copy and paste an entire folder from 'files'. Will help when setting up initial infrastructure.

  10. Easier access to changing files to view only

    Files shared in team sites can be edited by all members. To change the sharing to view only you have to open in SharePoint - details -manage access. It would be much better to have the ability to change sharing type in the 'more options' list in Teams.

  12. Students should not be able to add or remove files in the Files Tab. Or let me add a view only OneDrive tab.

    The files tab should be for the class content provided by the teacher. It should not collect all the attachments or pictures the students upload to the conversations tab. Also, it should not let student remover any file.

    Or else let us add a onedrive tab for us to share files for the students.

  13. Make a playback speed button for all videos uploaded.

    Many are using this app to upload their lectures. Their initial talking speed may be too slow for its listeners. This will 100% make everyone's life easier and happier.

  14. Files downloads flexibility

    Maybe allow drag and drop downloads. For example, drag the file from Teams into our personal folders on our desktop and have it downloaded directly. Instead of clicking download and having to always fetch our files from "Downloads" folder. This feature was available from Microsoft Outlook. It will help me a lot in terms of my productivity if I have multiple files or multiple folders to download files from. Thank you!!!! I really like TEAMS so far. Its very versatile and easy to use

  17. Be able to have the recording sessions in a chronological way, because some times the recordings get lose when you are looking for it.

    You can lose the recorded class in the plataform when you are looking fot it and it is really anoying because when you miss a class and then you look if someone record it, it is just not there, but really it was just hidden in the reply's of the chat.

  18. Allow Sharing of Links in the Files Tab

    I want to be able to save website links in the files tab, just like I can save links in a file in One Drive. For instance, in my Pre-Employment Skills channel of my Life Skills class I created a folder in the Files tab called Typing. I want to be able to share website links to an online typing class and typing games. I realize I could create a Word Doc with a list of links, but that is just one more step. My students are Intellectually Disabled, and I want to make it as simple as possible for…

  19. Links don't work (PPSX,PDF Files) Teams Desktop

    Hi everyone, my problem is this, I am using the TEAMS desktop application. I upload files with the extension "ppsx, pdf" to the files section of any group. Then I open these files in the application. After opening the application, I click on the links in the files with the extension "ppsx, pdf". The link does not work. In order to run the connection, I download the file to my desktop or use the TEAMS application via the web browser. I'm adding a sample video explaining my problem

  20. pin files

    It would be great to be able to pin files, like in the desktop apps, so you don't have to search through the list to find the last one you just had open.
