  2. Upload files to multiple channels at the same time

    When posting a message please allow us to upload a file to multiple channels.
    Currently if you attach a file to a message you can only post it to one channel. Many teachers are responsible for multiple classes in the same grade. Having to go and upload a file to each team and channel one by one is very time consuming.

  3. Let .pdf presentations to be shared in Teams (currently Powerpoint only is supported)!

    Hi,

    I use .pdf slides (written in LaTeX, lots of equations, tables etc.) in my classrooms, yet I cannot share them because only Powerpoint is supported, so far. It would be great to make .pdf presentations shareable in Teams.

  7. Hello, it would be great if you could add an indicator for downloading progress.

    This program is missing an indicator that shows us how the download is progressing when we are downloading files from MS Teams.
    Another feature that would be of great help is if MS Teams can give us a message if we are downloading files that we already downloaded since there is so many class materials and videos.

  8. Sorting Assignments - More options needed

    I would like to be able to have assignments appear in an order of my choosing. Being able to group them under a unit or topic would also be important.

  9. Posting across channels with attachments

    The option to post on multiple channels is awesome! I wish there could be a way to attach a file and share it across multiple channels. Is that a future possibility? Would really help out the teachers at our school! OR is there an alternative way to share the same content (with attachments) across multiple channels and only posting once?

  13. Add virtual manipulatives for students to use within Teams.

    This feature would take Teams to a whole new level compared to competitors. A library of virtual manipulative that teachers can drag into the meeting screen for students to see on an interactive whiteboard. For example, fraction parts, area tiles, counters, base 10 blocks, ruler, dice, etc.

  17. 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…

  18. Recorded Meeting download status is not visible.

    While downloading the recorded meeting video in Teams Desktop App we cannot stop or pause or remove an ongoing download. Suppose if click the download button twice, I cannot stop the excess download. I can only delete after it is downloaded, which wastes my data

  19. integrated downloading section

    currently if any file is downloading and taking a while to complete the downloading the system won't show that the file is in process of downloading that tiny feature in files section could help a Lot and another function to generate a folder per team and all the stuff which will be downloaded can be managed in those folder only instead a bunch of junk in downloads folder
