        Our company switched to Office 365 with Teams. As a collaboration tool, it would be best to have commenting/annotation features for PDF for shared review of documents.

        This would go along way to helping with user adoption at the management level.

        PDFs are a horrible experience in SharePoint Online (Teams). #1 problem shifting our users to Teams. Adobe's SPO integration forces users over to Adobe CC, not the desktop app. FoxIt understands opening/writing directly with SPO, but no easy integration and client configuration. We need option to "Open in app", not just "Open in browser".

        It is absolutely essential to get this functionality in Teams to review student work in my case. Please make it available on all platforms, since only then it will by used by all our students.

        Added my vote. Teams is proving to be such a usable resource, and in our use cases much cleaner than Sharepoint. We need this functionality and abhor having to pay Adobe for Acrobat DC licenses just to be able to annotate a PDF.

        It would be really helpful if you could annotate on any document you upload really

        Isn't this collaboration at the heart of most any business or industry? Surprised it wasn't possible already, or at least a tab that would allow it. Download and re-uploading without ability to collaborate is just fancy document storage (well, not even that fancy really). Commit this already.

        It would be really helpful if you could annotate on any document you upload really. Sometimes it takes a while to export an InDesign file that's 200 pages and would be easier just to upload to Creative Cloud and then have the ability to do on screen annotations. Additionally, it saves so much time to be able to have annotation on the computer versus print out, but makes Teams far less appealing to my company and team because we rely heavily on different co-workers to contribute feedback to something I'd create.

        Teams is supposed to be a collaboration tool , not being able to have 1 or more people annotate a document at the same time sort of defeats the purpose of collaboration.
