  1. Please add a pause recording button in Teams.

    Hello, Please add a pause button to the recording feature. I need to pause when making How-To videos to reset the screen, take a break, etc. I am sharing these instructional videos with colleagues and team members.
    Thank you!

  2. Show team name when shared document link is clicked

    When someone shares a document link to a Team file, there is no good way to know what Team the document is stored in. This context can be very important as a collaborative document is being worked on to properly understand the scope the document is intended for.

  3. Allow SharePoint Properties to be Updated in MS Teams

    When setting up a view with the file structure it would be wonderful to be able to update those fields/columns in MS Teams instead of needing to bounce back into SharePoint every time.

  4. View Files outside the Chat Window

    I'm in the DoD Cloud, and when files are uploaded, they can only be viewed in the Chat Room. The problem is that when numerous chats occur, that file is moved so far up the chat string that it makes the file difficult to find. Recommend having access to a separate window for Files.

  6. Bookmark Files/folder/pages

    Add a feature to Bookmark or Favorite pages/folder/files, and then have a tab on the Left Side of the screen (where you access Teams, Calendar, Activity, etc) to access your favorite files and/or folders

    Many of us have multiple channels with multiple folders and files and I cannot keep track of where everything is. This current system sucks

  7. File Mgmt

    Like any other file system, I should be able to MOVE FOLDERS and not just files. Imagine having folders inside folders that are inside many other folders and each folder including important files. Now imagine the folder organization was made by a Private, someone who's terrible at organizing, or simply the organization needs to be optimized or updated. You have these multitudes of files and folders that you'll have to download onto your desktop just to move files around. Like come on.

  9. Way to see where a file has been mentioned in Channel discussions

    Please add a way to see where a file has been mentioned in Channel discussions. This would be extremely helpful so that you are continuing the conversation, rather than starting a new one.

  11. Link to File - Security - Default

    The new options for copying the link to a file gives viewing permission, by default, to anyone within the organisation, even when this is part of a team with limited access. Should the deaflut not be 'people with existing access' and force the user to explicitly grant others access if that was their intention?

  12. G3

    Please allow the option to open a PDF document in app instead of browser. This option is available for anything Office related and I suspect that is the issue, its third party and worse its Adobe. We have a work around where we have an extension on our browsers to do this but its not ideal. Any help on this would be much appreciated.

  16. File Organization

    Enable Desktop Like file organization and customization to Mobile Teams.

    As well moving individual files to folders within mobile, currently you could only do that on desktop.

  17. Provide option to rename and delete files on the APP

    Its really inconvenient that the APP doesnt allow you to delete or rename the files you upload and you can ONLY upload one photo at a time if using phone device or iPad. There needs to be the same features that is provided when using the web option especially for school organisations.
