  1. Documents link in conversation should be permanent

    Documents related to a conversation should always be accessible even if the file is moved belong the Teams folders or the file is renamed. We face situation where we start a conversation on documents and then we decided to move those documents in a separate folder. By doing this the document related to the conversation in the channel cannot be opened again since we recieved a file not found.

  4. In Teams documents are getting locked when I open them for editing on the desktop, which is fine. However, the lock does not release.

    In Teams documents are getting locked when I open them for editing on the desktop, which is fine. However, the lock does not release after I save the file. This is not a good experience for active collaboration.

  5. Onedrive sort by name not working

    When trying to upload a file to a channel using Onedrive "attach" option, it looks like files and folders are sorted by "last modified date" regardless of hitting "name" to sort ascending or descending by name.

    This made it very difficult to browse my OneDrive for Business for the files I needed, please fix!

    FYI, this was posted in the "Public" feedback area, but it is definitely a bug, so reposting. (original post - https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33178930-upload-file-from-onedrive-wrong-ordering-of-name)

  8. Excel File Preview doesn't show attached objects

    We are migrating to using TEAMS instead of a shared file server. Recently I started using Excel to load all the pictures, information, and PDF's we need on specific customer orders. Everything looks okay in the file view except for the inserted OBJECT PDF.

    The work around we have found is that you have to download the entire file to your local PC/Phone and it then shows the attached PDF.

    Is there something we are missing?

  9. Files don't exist in channels in mobile app android 1416/1.0.0.2019052301

    The file-tab is gone. You can't find it and it's not available under More.
    I've tried different users and reinstalled the app etc. It's the same problem in all Teams. I can open attachments in conversations, that are saved in the team and channel.

    It works fine in iOs, same users.

    Version teams 1416/1.0.0.2019052301
    Version samsung G965FXXU4CSE3/G965FOXM4CSE3/G965FXXU4CSE1

  15. Sending multiple pictures requires selecting one at a time

    It makes no sense the current framework for selecting multiple pictures from the mobile app. After clicking the gallery icon I can't long press to select multiple pictures like every other app allows. Instead I have to select a picture, then wait for it to open full screen, then select the + icon have the gallery screen open, select the next picture because again I can't multi select and keep repeating. The usability of the office online products has been extremely disappointing and the fact that mobile products are so poorly designed really makes me strongly consider switching the business…

  16. Excel file preview doesn't show comments

    In the preview mode of an excel file, you can see the comment icon on a cell. If you select it, Teams open the right pane "Comment" but it is compleatly blank. To show the comment you have to open the file in editing mode.
    Same issue with desktop app on Windows 10 and web app in Chrome.

  18. Preview on file explorer does not work

    We have syncronized the teams files to the file explorer . You can only see a preview of them once you have saved them locally (Opened them).

  19. Files shared to a team don't show in the mobile app

    I am in a class team, and a piece of homework was set with a file uploaded to the team. All of my classmates couldn't access the files from the app on their mobile app (both Android and iPhone), only by accessing the desktop website or app, either on their computer or by requesting the desktop site in their mobile browser.
