  2. 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.

  3. recall One Note pages

    There needs to be a way to recall One Note pages as easily as distributing them. When I delete an assignment, I want it to automatically delete any One Note pages that were distributed with the assignment. Or, if I distribute a page to the Class Notebook, there should be an easy way to recall pages from student notebooks. Distributing pages in only a couple of clicks, but there is not option to recall or remove pages without going in to each students' notebook and deleting the pages manually. That is a huge amount of time with 150 student notebooks.

  4. Private HIDDEN Folder for Teachers Only

    In files, there's a "Class Materials" folder that is a read-only folder. This folder is visible to all members of a channel.

    I want to request another shared folder that is private under "Class Materials" with the ability to view, read, and edit by teachers only. This folder should be HIDDEN from all students and only visible to teachers.

  5. 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

  7. After clicking on the downloaded file icon, the file location should highlight the downloaded file.

    Currently clicking on 'file downloaded' only opens the destination folder, it doesn't highlight the actual file which has just been downloaded, which means we need to then do a search within the folder to find the downloaded file. Clicking on 'file downloaded' notification should take us directly to the destionation folder and the downloaded file should be highlighted for us to easily locate.

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
