  1. Unable to upload files

    We just setup our instance of teams and after a day, we still are getting the error message on all files:

    We are setting up your file directory.
    Try refreshing the page after a few minutes or check back later.

    • 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.

        • After edited the file by Microsoft teams, the file can't be renamed or deleted.

          It will show a error message that the file is lock.

            • PDF Viewer sometimes refreshes when scrolling and zooming, losing your place in the document and causing you to wait for it to reload.

              This happens in the Teams Web App (tested on Firefox on Windows 7), and in the iOS app on iPad.

                    • Unable to open Word files in Word

                      I can open PPT and Excel files in Powerpoint and Excel, respectively, shared with me in a chat group, but I cannot open Word files in Word. I recieve the pop-up telling me "Opening Word" but the file never opens. (This also is happening to me in Sharepoint). I can only open the files in Word Online, which does not provide all the functionality I need.

                        • 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)
