  1. The ability to download the lectures and watch it without internet.

    I would like if Microsoft Teams can download the lectures and gives us the ability to watch them without needing to the internet like Netflix.  I can watch the  episode after download it without internet. This feature will give me chance to watch the lecture any place. Especially, the place that has not have internet service.

  2. Richer integration with Google Drive

    I'm working on possibly rolling out Teams to our staff next Fall, however we are considered a "Google District" and therefore are struggling with a few items. My suggestion (if possible) would be to allow sharing of individual files within the Files tab of Teams. Also, the system should be able to pick up whether it's a Doc, Slides, or Sheets file with an icon to represent.

  3. PDF File view zoom shouldn't change when switching PDFs.

    I prefer to have the default zoom of pdf files as 'Window width', it is annoying to have to keep changing it, it should remain as whatever I set it.
    If the zoom is 150% when I exit, it should be 150 when I enter.
    Small QoL feature, much appreciated.

  4. Delete saved file in teams after file uploaded in my work

    After a file is uploaded and then removed, and then the same file is added, the name changes to "filename 1.filetype", where is the file "filename" saved, so that it can be deleted and after reupload of the file, there is no " 1" added to it

  5. Change Default Download Location On MS Teams

    I use many teams and channels in MS teams, but there is no option to download individual files to separate folders. It is very confusing. Instead, I think it would be easier for most users to choose where to save the files before downloading them.Also, the downloaded files will be displayed in the download folder of the MS teams only after they have been downloaded.Instead, it will be easier to use if the download section shows what files we are downloading and their progress.

    -Thank You!

  8. Please display the size of files under files section.

    It would help students to determine how long will it take to download the class material/file.

  10. Prevent downloads of files

    It would be useful to be able to disable downloads of certain files. Some of us make our livelihoods from our resources that we spend months making. I want to be able to share it with my students but for them not to be able to download the file and share it further.

  11. Set the default PFD view on opening to "Windows Width" instead of "Window Size"

    Every time I open a PDF file in teams its width is by default set to "Window Size" (Content cannot be read in this view). I have to click on "Window Width" each time to make it full screen. The main aim of opening the PDF is to read and for that I have to do an extra 2 clicks to read the PDF document. It would be great if just on click of the file it opens in full screen size.

  12. Notify students when Teacher uploads Files

    In Modular or asynchronous classes, Teams does not notify if there are new modules or video lectures uploaded in the files tab in class materials. it would be helpful if it is included as an option in Notifications if the teacher would not inform the students that they had already uploaded one

  13. Improvements on integrations and interactivity

    I made a post yesterday asking if you can integrate an interactive picture through apps. The post can be found in the link bellow:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msteams/forum/msteamstfe-msteamsteams-msteams_mngteam/interactive-picture/c91aa96a-ec69-416b-962d-bc60a1f26daa?messageId=14913c83-44df-4344-8375-2c11daa7d1df
    However i was told that you are unable in the current version of MS-Teams. I made a few tests on the Power Apps platform and while i created what i wanted, when i integrated it in a tab of a Team channel (using the desktop app version, not the browser version), when i pressed on it, i got redirected on my internet browser version of the teams app. This was my problem while…

  14. Teams are appearing very cluttered and it is difficult for my daughter to find what really matters ie. Lessons and homework.

    There needs to be clearer indication of the dates materials have been posted so it is easier to find things.
    Also all the comments children/teachers make do not need to be visible for everyone ie. on general channel but could open if somebody wants to read them.

  16. Dyslexie font

    Dyslexie font would be a wonderful addition to Teams and it would be even better if all files were either uploaded in that font or the program automatically changes the file to dyslexie font!!! if that's not possible maybe we could make a feature where the parents/ students could change the file font to Dyslexie Font. Personally my son would benefit from greatly and so would alot of other people.

  18. improve the MP4 viewer

    improve the MP4 viewer because t's always at the loading then play 2 secs and then it load again or add an option to download it using IDM or any other downloading program because download big files using the browser downloader make it more difficult to do

  19. Making organization of maps easier

    It would be nice if it were possible to move folders around. So, for example in the image I added, ideally I would be able to move all the selecter folders into the Semester 1 folder. Right now organization is a bit hard, as it involves a lot of re-uploading of files, which in my opinion isn't neccesary.
    This would make checking folders a lot easier : )

  20. Change document view width default

    When reading and editing a document online, due to the variety in size of screens, it would be good if the document would open in a FIT TO WIDTH size.
    It would also be good if authors can change:
    1) the default view of a specific document for all users.
    2) the default view of all document for the user.
