As we announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019 this week, we are excited to confirm that Multi-window capabilities are coming to Microsoft Teams, and will start rolling out to the public ring early next year!
I am getting very frustrated trying to chat with a colleague about something we are viewing in a Teams channel. I can't see both at the same time, and every time I go to the chat and then back to the channel, I have lost my place and have to navigate back to where I was looking.

Please make this possible! It is frustrating not being able to view two things within Teams at the same time.

I can see a "Recent" list within Teams and can view documents that I have recently had open in the OneDrive web app. Why can't I see the "Shared with me" list of files within Teams. Right now this is only one of three things (in addition to viewing email and being able to edit documents inside the Teams app) that is keeping Teams from being completely seamless.

Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.
Yes! This is critical for us. Our files are view-able to many people and only the manager and two team leaders should be allowed to edit them. It is important for us to be able to set who has editing rights and who has read-only rights. It would not be helpful if only the person who posted the doc would have editing rights. This could be the default setting, but we would need to be able to add additional editors by name for each document, or for all documents, as needed.
I agree too! The training video made it sound like we would be able to do this and have a conversation along the side while editing. I was disappointed when I found we had to be rerouted to the web browser or edit locally. It would be so much more seamless if everyone could watch edits as they are happening live - just like on the Word or Excel web apps, but right there in the Teams app next to our conversation.
This feature is still in the backlog.
I created a "Home Page" tab that I update with recent announcements and I really want this to be the first thing my team sees when they open Teams. It gets frustrating having to tell them to click on the Home Page tab every time I update it. But if I don't tell them, they don't automatically go there and see the recent announcements. I would like the Conversations tab to move over to the right and only be displayed when they click on it. I want to delete the Files tab, because we have no use for it. It would really be helpful to be able to move, delete, and rename tabs, and to be able to choose the default tab that I want my team to see first.
You can drag and drop the tabs to display in the order you would like them in.
I am trying to drag and drop the tabs. The animation shows it dragging, so it looks like it will work, but then it just pops back to where it was.
