Share Teams files/folder with External contacts, without requiring a login
Currently when you add a file within a Team there's no way to share that file with an external contact.
I would like a way share a file from within teams with external contacts. I would also like them to be able to edit selected files as well as upload new files and have them show up in the channel's Sharepoint Directory.

We're looking at Teams and this is a needed feature for us as well. I'm hoping to keep as much inside the Teams interface as possible. Any time the staff member needs to go somewhere else, it makes them less likely to want to use it. Currently they either need to 'Open in SharePoint' first or sync the file library to their OneDrive and share from there.
With the news that Skype for Business is being replaced by Teams, external file and screen sharing, video conferencing etc. are critical to some business needs. Skype for Business has been many companies go-to medium. Is there any plan to allow these features in Teams? Or is this going to be a legacy point for Skype for Business?

Agree. Sharing files with external users is much too annoying and time consuming.

We need this feature @admin! Doesn't make sense that Microsoft is pushing sharing everywhere but within Teams. What's the use of pushing collaboration if we can't share group documents outside Teams?

It is impossible to share a folder or a file outside the teams within the Teams interface. We have to go to the Group Library in SharePoint to find the Share and the create link options. It is something my clients use everyday and is keeping them from using Teams when they need file collaboration between other teams in their organization.
This a must feature to see Teams adoption go up in more traditional organizations.
This is the HIGHEST priority for me.

Additional to this I would like to email files from Teams. Now I have to download the files from Teams first, and then email it.
