Upload a file to Teams directly from a desktop Office application
When I am creating a new file in an Office document I want there to be an option in the "Save as" location, to save to an Microsoft Team, similar to how there are options to save to your OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and This PC locations. Right now I either have to remember to create the file from Teams or to create the file on my PC and then upload it manually to Teams.
This request has been accepted by the feature team and is now on the backlog. I’ll keep you posted as it moves through the development process.
Any updates on this? We're trying to get our users to adopt Teams, but this is holding it up.
You can save to Teams from Word if you Copy the SharePoint link from Teams under the Tab you plan to use and then open up Word and go to Save As. You will need to select your Site and paste the link into the Address Bar.
what is the status?

We need this. Saving files directly in team channels from every open/save dialog in explorer or office apps.
This way you can have teams as a single point of file share. Get rid of driveletter file shares and not putting files on places outside the teams channels. As y go u can simply do by accident right now when mapping sharepoint sites to explorer.
Coming up to a year since the backlog comment was made.
Any update on when this feature, which would remove a lot of user frustration and help drive user adoption, will be available
I'm not sure if I understand this. I use MS Office 365 and use MS Teams but I can not take a file from an e-mail and put it directly into teams?
I would love to meet that program compatibility team that designed this.
The "Upload" option, which allows you to save email attachments to an O365 Group was semi-useful but now O365 Groups are now hidden from Outlook-> Groups. Prior to this feature when you created a Team the creation of the O365 Group was visible in Outlook->Groups.
The -hidden feature was added to avoid confusion, i.e. "where do I save my attachment, to the Group or the Team?" but in reality has now hamstrung Teams adoption unless you go in via PowerShell and change the -hidden option.
The use case "Save Attachment to Team" seems like such a basic thing (I understand that it may be a pain from a coding perspective but to not have this feature and with the only true work around to save the file locally, open up your Team and drag the file into it, just causes users to continue to use email as their storage area for files/attachments).
Backlog communication was July 8. Please communicate when this will be done.

Please let us know if this feature has been implemented in Teams. This would be an amazing feature where user can save his files directly to teams. Right now, they are saving to desktop & drag & drop to teams which is tedious.

Saving attachments from Outlook Online directly to Teams is an absolute must-have.

Great question that will help drive user adoption!
Please fix this!

We're pushing for people to use Teams, and users are asking for this. Forcing people to save somewhere else and then upload seems very out-of-date.

Hello Warren - any update? This is a sticking point for me in working to shift my user community towards MS Teams and away from BOX. This would seem to be very basic functionality as it already exists for SharePoint, quite surprising that it hasn't been worked-out yet.
I cant believe that this is not getting more priority. Every time I go to move something from email to teams I find myself getting so frustrated. Is it really that hard to have it that we can drag a file from an email directly to a team? Grrrr
Any update upon this feature?
Crucial for the company I work for, before we can implement.

Hi there, is this being worked through by any chance? Would be amazing to be able to save direct to the teams folder rather than save to my computer and then upload...
Agree with wanting the ability to save Teams location folder path to File Explorer so its easy to save file right away to that folder. Can't believe Microsoft didn't make this standard, it was standard in legacy sharepoint.
