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.
Seems like a pretty fundamental feature that's missing.
What the first thing you want to do with a new DOC, XLS etc? Save it.
Where do you want to save it? Teams.
Come on Microsoft - try and get it right in the first place

You can already do this!!! From the Office apps you can add the SharePoint library that is the back end for Teams. Once the SharePoint library is added, you can save Office files directly to a Teams-channel. (Picture attached)

This one is really a big need for the user adoption of Teams. As we're currently moving our files to Teams, the user adoption of Teams is held back, because users can't easily find the right place to store there newly created files.
Please let me know if it is possible using MS Office 365 and MS Teams to save a pdf attached to an e-mail directly into teams? Currently I have to first save it on my PC then upload it to Teams but if I'm wasting my time please let me know?

How do I add a MS Teams folder to the 'Frequent' section in Sites? The one showing is one that I rarely use and I don't know how to replace it with the one I do you, or add the one I use.
on the backlog since 07/08/2018? Any news?
Any update on this one? Thank you.
Has there been any progress with this feature? Also, has there been any further progress with being able to drop and drag an email attachment in Outlook directly into Microsoft Teams?
Your Teams sites show up under Sites with the SharePoint logo. This functionality already exists, there is just no indication that it is "Microsoft Teams" since files in Teams are really just a SharePoint site.

Ridiculous!! Surely this is what file sharing is all about. Easy transfer of files between Office apps to save time. I have spent ages trying to figure it out with no luck and no real explanations why or solutions. Please fix it
what's the status please?
Come on and get this sorted.

We are still stuck with the most recent SharePoint sites list to get access to save to a Team. But I'd rather not get in to that when selling the pros of Teams. A quick link to scroll My Teams/channels is required! Preferably yesterday...
What's the status?
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).
