  1. File navigation

    Global back button takes you back to the former tab. Should take you back to the super or subfolder you were just in.

  3. computer at work

    My personal files are made from home PCs that appear on the computer at work.
    I find it hard to control personal files and shared files.
    I think there should be a symbol or a prominent display option on the menu bar.

  6. Please allow folders to be moved to a new location, not just files.

    When you click on a file, there are loads of lovely options that pop up, including "move." This needs to be expanded to whole folders so we don't need to recreate the folder system if we need to move one (or more) folders.

  7. Print to OneNote from files in Teams

    When I open a file shared with me in Teams, I can't print it to OneNote without downloading and saving it elsewhere first. I would like to minimize the locations where documents are saved. Could you please put in a Print / Print to OneNote option?

  8. Allow text highlighting/copy and paste from OneDrive files viewed in Teams

    When I choose Files on the far left menu, and choose a file to view, I cannot highlight text in it and copy and paste it unless I choose one of the Edit options. We would like our team members to be able to copy and paste from this view without accidentally deleting or changing something. Is it possible to add the capability of highlighting text when you are just viewing the document, without having to switch to an editable version?

  9. Have an option of renaming files and deleting files in the mobile app.

    The desktop app has an option of renaming and deleting files where as the mobile app doesn't.
    That option should be available for the mobile app too.

  10. View of the files uploaded in Microsoft Teams ought to no longer be tormented by the theme selected. (Please vote)

    (Use of the link is given on the end of the article)

    By https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/users/2323166872-microsoftuser1,

    I am writing this to @microsoftteams.uservoice.com and the crew hoping that they'll solve my problem. I have a proposal. It's that I have selected the "High contrast" mode for my view. It's very nice! No doubt :). Just I have a hassle while opening the documents uploaded in files or class notebook! :( …
    Each time I open the files the whole file opens up in a high contrast mode - which even changes the view and is a "trouble"! So my opinion is that…

  13. Fonts unavailable in Teams - PowerPoint looks terrible after upload

    When a PowerPoint looks wonderful in the app and online versions, then looks terrible and unreadable when uploaded to Teams because all the FONTS have been replaced by limited selection in Teams. Please give the same FONT choice in Teams as in PowerPoint to preserve the design and readability of PowerPoint slides.

  14. Back/forward function for files in order to go between folders w/o going back to beginning each time

    Please create a back/forward button for easy transition/interoperability within the file folders. As of now, if you're accessing a document within a parent file folder (e.g. file b), that's within a file folder (e.g. file a) , and want to go back once step (e.g. to file b), there is currently now way to do this. Rather, it takes you all the way back out to the start (e.g. to file a). It would be really helpful to have the same file folder functions as all of the other Microsoft office products (back/forward level at a time). I hope this…

    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.

  19. Enable a feature whereby children are not allowed to delete assignment or videos uploaded by the teachers

    It seems that children are accidentally deleting the class material, videos etc loaded on Teams by the teachers. Perhaps a function can be added whereby only teachers can delete videos or a function where deleting videos or material can be disabled by the parents to ensure that the work does not get lost.

  20. 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
