Have the download function of files allow you to select the destination
Currently files are downloaded only to the DOWNLOAD folder. Allow a save as function / select download location.
Unfortunately because of changing priorities, this feature was moved to the backlog. The team hopes to pick it up again in the near future.
I really need this!!
I am using Teams as a teacher and I would need this feature. At least the possibility to change the defualt download directory.
Teams needs a better cook.
My VM was killed due to the lack of
- Ability to see download activity
- Ability to cancel a download
The multiple file downloads took my VM due to space and the lack of the ability to download to another drive.
Every basic browser has this ability but they seem to over looked it when baking Teams.
Crazy that such a simple and basic feature is not implemented.
Joining my voice to an already big choir... Please implement this ASAP. Seems to me a very basic feature. In my case I would also like to be able to select OneDrive as my destination folder since I tend to save everything in the cloud and not only on my local machine.
is it in backlog since Jan 23 2020????? are you kidding!
Please make this feature available at the earliest. Its annoying not to be able to download in the custom folder.
We recently moved to Team from Slack. I am seeing everything which was normal in Slack is something Teams doesn't even know that this kind of thing exist. The team is such a ****** application, seriously.
Teams should have been refined first with things that are necessary for a user and then they should have launched it. Such bad job overall from the whole Microsoft Teams team.
So basically we shouldn't use this feature then and find a workaround instead... So what was the advantage again???
This is weird that such a basic and utility feature is in the backlog!
We need this option please!

Please consider integrating a real/full File handling and Download management ...
Useful would be a list of default paths for each chat, maybe automatically generated by the last (configurable, default 10) used folder
see additionally several other related ideas with around 30-50 votes... just use "Download" as a search string ;-)
I'd like it ! I never upload in this folder. I need to download students's work in their folder... I don't understand why a such feature doesn't exist with Teams...
It is the first application I've ever met which is devoid such a basic feature.
We need this! I want to download to the OneDrive download folder. This bypass the benefit of having OneDrive protect my files.
This should be an easy fix right? Why so much drama over changing priorities and all? Let me know if you want a piece of code to make a path configurable. Should be a 5 minute job

I'm actually really surprised a basic feature such as this wasn't implemented as part of the initial program design

this is such a basic feature it's ridiculous the last update is it being backlogged in 2020.
Looks like requests for this have been going on for a long time. This really should be a default feature, following the typical "destination folder" options. I have to archive meeting minutes regularly and this would be a big help.
I believe for security reasons we should have an option to be able to save our downloads to a location that is more secure then on our desktop downloads. Please enable this feature so we can download and share within our secure environments.
