How can we make Microsoft Teams better for your classroom and staff collaboration?

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.

        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!

        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.

        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!

        This would definitely benefit me! I came to ask the same thing... after spending hours doing it the 'long way'.
