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.
This feature request is now actively being worked upon. As we move through the development process, I will post an new updates to this topic.
Please keep the votes and feedback coming in. Your feedback is shared with the feature team every month.
Is "Warren" still working on this project / in the same role?
I have to acknowledge that the early communication was quite good, with four posts made from 21 February 2018 to 06 July 2018.
Has Microsoft moved "Warren" off this task?
It is hard to believe it would be released without this feature, but even harder to believe it could take more than one year to implement.
The Firefox browser also has such a feature, where users can choose to EITHER automatically save everything in their Downloads folder OR always be asked where they'd like to save each file.
Personally I cannot understand why anyone other than a complete novice would prefer the first option.
do we have it yet?
Just a suggestion: Perhaps instead of stating, "Working on it", and then failing to post any progress for one and a half years, you could share what the difficulty or road block is to this?
It's been awhile since I was developing full time, but as I recall this is a trivial method to implement.
Is it even one line of code?
Metaphorically speaking, you have a very large crowd gathered outside with torches and pitch forks, angry as all get out, and you appear to be gathered behind the castle walls feasting and drinking with no concern for the people outside.

This is typical of Microsoft - removing useful features, just like they did with Skype. If my company didn't force us to use this crappy app I would never use it.
LOL it's 2020 and this basic feature is still missing. What a joke.
I just started using Teams today. The very first thing I did was try to download 20 images from a colleague to a specific folder on my PC.
Funny how they added "dark mode" but forgot to add "save as" when downloading files!
Angry User commented
Come on! Do it already! And your app is taking over Slack! Unbelievable
Is this feature on the horizon in the near future? I believe this was requested in 2017.

Please let us know when this feature will be ready !
"Working on it" for 2 years. Microsofties really have nothing to be proud of and haven't since Windows XP.

I hope this feature is coming soon.
Suggest that the option to set up the download default folder in preferences as well as a "save as" option

What a stupid option to not include, seriously?
When will it be ready?
In my opinion, this is a must have feature
Eirik Mikkelsen commented
Please fix this!!!! - working on it since July 2018... Should be ready now! Please!

Using MS Teams every day for multiple classes with multiple files to download as assignments come. Please, MS... give us this feature.
Foivos Zotos commented
I cannot imagine how this can take 1.5 year to develop. I guess it has to do with Teams not having a proper options/preferences page. Unbelievable guys, seriously...
David Coulton commented
2020 and this isn't a feature yet... wow.
I use teams at my office and it's beyond frustrating that I cannot choose where my files will save. I desperately need the "save as" function available!
And/or to change the default to a different location?
