  1. Please allow the upload of Folders. Not just a file.

    We would like to be able to move folders from other areas to the File section of Teams. To create a folder and then upload files to it is too much work, especially if we have several levels of folders within folders.

  3. pdf markup

    It would be absolutely awesome if you could incorporate the current OneDrive mobile app's function to markup PDF files stored in "files"

  4. Share a file across multiple team

    I have created several teams for my school (Yr 7 Maths, Yr 8 Maths, Yr 9 Maths) and while most of the time each team would be working specifically within that team, sometimes there may be a department file that we need to work on. Can I share the file between teams, and have the file constantly update and sync across all teams?

  5. Sort Files alphabetically or by creation date

    Default File Sorting
    I cannot find how to change the default file sorting. Currently it defaults to time uploaded. Whilst I would much prefer to sort it by title of file.

    I spend time ensuring that all my files have good filenames so that they sort. I cannot find how to change this default.

  8. Create a hyperlink library in files

    In teams, I'd like to be able to post a list of links that can be accessed right from Teams. At this point, I have to create a Word Doc with hyperlinks on it then upload that to the Files tab. When my team tries to open the links, they have to open it in Sharepoint instead of the link going straight to the web.

  9. create links in Teams Files

    It is not possible to create a saved Web Link in the Teams view of files but it is possible to create a web Link in the Sharepoint view of Teams Files. When the link is clicked on in Sharepoint, the link works. In the Teams view a link just tries to download a file.

    Could web Links be made to work the same in the Teams view of Files as in the Sharepoint view of the same files.

  10. People have no idea what sharepoint is. Stop confusing us with view in sharepoint.

    once we get to sharepoint it is massively confusing. I have never used a service more confusing than a sharepoint site that no one knows exists except through links to the exact location. You're losing people with this horrible structure.

  12. Drag and Drop Files

    Please can you add the facility to drag and drop files out of teams application rather than needing to download them.drag and drop files out of teams rather than needing to download them. It would be really helpful if you could make the files tab act more like explorer in the way it handles files.

  13. change download destination

    Could you please include a function to change the destination folder for downloads?
    Or point me in the direction of doing it myself.
    It's frustrating that they automatically do into the downloads folder.

  14. Attach a file as feedback

    It would be very useful to be able to attach files as part of feedback - video, image, etc. I have students submit a variety of ways, and I can't give near the same quality feedback in a text box as I could if I could attach a file to SHOW them things.

  18. Refresh Button/Option in Files

    In Teams there isn't an option to refresh the directory you are in - you have to go up a folder and then back into the directory to see updated/added files. Can a refresh button be added (similar to in a Windows file path refresh)?

  19. Create a way to share files into channels for multiple teams.

    For example if I want to share a set of notes to all three of my classes (teams) Is there a way without having to upload it three separate teams.
