  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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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

  8. 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)

  9. 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.

  12. opening files in teams - and loosing them again

    having all items in one pane is wonderful, till you need to switch to something else like an incoming chat. If you are working on a file in Teams and you switch to the chat section, your file is closed and you need to open it and choose edit again.

    This suggestion goes into many other suggestions allowing Teams to be multi windowed so we can spread work out on monitors/views etc. As a knowledge worker Teams just isn't working from an efficiency perspective.

    If I am on a mobile device, sure. But my office environment is set up for…

  15. opening files

    Hi there! When I open a file with the desktop app, it will reopen on its own shortly after opening the file. For example, I go into MS Teams, click on the three dots next to a file, and say "Open in Desktop App". It will open, and I start working on the file. Shortly after, either the file reopens on its own, or iI will get a warning window asking me if I'm sure I want to reopen the file. There doesn't seem to be any way to get this to stop. I have found several other users experiencing…

  16. File with dot at the beginning has after download not a dot at the beginning

    If you upload a file with a dot at the beginning in a chat, the downloaded file has this dot no more at the beginning.

    Example:
    The file '.editorconfig' is uploaded in a chat. In the message the file is shown as '.editorconfig'.
    But the downloaded file is named: 'editorconfig' (without dot)

  18. Deleted member still on my Sharepoint

    A deleted member of my team is still saving files onto my Sharepoint space. Even though I can't see it when I access myName.sharepoint.com.

    Critical: Is there anyway to revoke that access?

  19. unable to give access to files

    Not all of my colleagues inside a group chat are able to access uploaded files. They have to request access, which sends me an email and I try to "approve" however the request fails.
