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.
Thank you for your continued feedback. You can now upload folders, including sub-folders, from your system into the Teams channel files tab using either Drag & Drop or the Upload Folder option.

This is critical as we (ODU) moves from Box to Teams for document reviews. I need to be able to upload a set of drawings, as indiviudal sheets, which for a large construction projects could be over 300 files.
+1 to using OneDrive sync for this, works great for us!
You can already! You just need to convert the folder to a Zip folder. It's easy to do!
You can drag and drop folders into the 'Files' tab section, and then this negates the need to create individual folders. If you have a folder in your directory that you would like to add, drag it across to the appropriate directory in Teams, and release - it will copy that folder and all of its contents across. This is a workaround so you don't have to spend ages adding individual files to a folder.
Can you just not "share" a folder from your OneDrive/Sharepoint? ...a workaround, at least for now.

I was able to upload an entire folder worth of files into my teams (over 18 files). I simply had to make the folder for it to be placed in.

I teach 6 of the same subject and it would be helpful to be able to create a folder full of notes under the "File Tab" then copy it into multiple teams (like assignments). Right now I have to individual go into each team and copy it over. It would be nice to be able to click all the teams I want to move it into. There isn't access to copy a whole folder either, just individual files.

It would be nice if we can do the following:
1. Upload more than 10 files at a time
2. Upload folders
3. Move/copy folders between teams
Additionally, you should be able to # a specific folder to automatically store a file from assignments or conversations
Yes, this feature would be great!

Would like to see this happen.
Right now there is a work around where you upload the folders to OneDrive, share the folder and get a shareable link, and add the link to your tabs. Seems to be the simplest option at the moment!

Right now to upload files to a class (semester change or beginning of the year), you are limited to 10 files with the Teams APP. The work around is to login to the browser sharepoint and upload FOLDERS that way. Not as efficient as it should be.
A possible solution would be to link your Onedrive folder directly to a team or something similar.
The ability to upload files and folders to more than one Team at a time.

You can synchronize folders from OneDrive on your local computer and upload many folders at once:
1) Open the channel
2) Press "Files"
3) Press to open in SharePoint
4) Press synchronize.
5) Copy the folders you want to upload in the local copy.
6) Wait for everything to be synchronized.
For actual team (eg. hockey, or coaching) sites, including a long list of files ends up being quite disorganized. Can you please allow for the option of folders as well?
A thousand times yes - I have a large number of files to transfer to a Teams channel and I'm having to re-create the folder structure - very tedious! Need to be able to drag & drop folders!
Yes, or, in addition to that, select more than one file for an upload.
This would definitely benefit me! I came to ask the same thing... after spending hours doing it the 'long way'.
