Add comments/discussion threads to documents.
A lot of work centers around documents (proposal, graphic design WIP, etc.). Give us the ability to have the conversation on/under the document. Keep those comments tied to the document/file. The document serves as a hub for a project or as a major component of a lot of work interactions. Please add this feature.
We have this! Just click the little chat box graphic on the right side of the document viewing pane (it’s right next to Edit, Close and the ellipses, on the very top right). When you click that graphic, it will slide out a right side bar, and you can start your discussion thread there. When you go back into regular channel view, you’ll see the thread nested underneath the document.

I used to love MS WORD. Now I hate it and have completely switched to Pages. Why?
1. I used to be able to open Word, write something and save it to the desktop. Now that is virtually impossible! I get the option to save to One Drive Documents, not desktop. Even when I do that and look in the OneDrive Folder and Documents it is not there. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!
2. After I do many things on the computer I get a Note relevant to Messages that I have to make a new password for my Apple ID. When I put the latest password in it says that is not correct. When directed to iForgot it has no record of my email addresses. It then says my account is frozen. NOTHING I DO WORKS.
What have you guys done???? Totally ruined what used to be a good app. SHAME ON YOU!! By contrast, Pages works perfectly.
YOU SHOULD FIRE ALL YOUR CURRENT CODERS AND GET THE OLD ONES BACK!!!!!!!

Your information will be added in the footer section of every email campaign. Hello. Please give our thanks to the Manager and others for the wonderful room and bottle of sparkling wine for our email campaign.
1. Please make the control bar able to pin and unpin. When sharing a screen, the control bar (with the icons for recording, video, microphone control, chat, participants, etc.) is displayed partly over the bottom part of the shared screen, thereby obscuring some of the details.
2. Please allow sending of a message to an individual present at the meeting, not all persons at the meeting.

Hey, what a brilliant post I have come across and believed me I have been searching out for this similar kind of post for past a week and hardly came across this. Thank you very much and I will look for more postings from you.Feel free to visit my web https://techcloud.co.za/document-management-solutions/
But it would be really helpful to be able to tie those comments to a specific place or part of the document. So when a user clicks on a comment, it opens up the document and jumps to the place within the document (if available). Similar to the google docs.
probably would make sense to remove the "We have this" claim, or modify it to "we have this for MS files", so it's clear it's a partial solution for now.
unfortunately this is only for MS file types. For pdf (just one example, but one that obviously is incredibly common to have in a file structure), best that seems doable is viewing as static document online, or viewing in SP as part of file structure (but still with no conversation ability). I think general practice at MS needs to be adoption of reality for most people...we get lots of files (all sorts of types). Anyone on these forums is clearly a fan of MS, and wants to let Teams be a central hub for many things. If we cannot use an MS product, then we have to go to other places that don't have a care about the source of the file...they are just focused on letting teams discuss their documents, tasks, work efforts, etc. MS featuring chat just for MS file types means that you have a partial solution, which is just not enough for wholesale adoption as a workflow tool. Please expand the chat availability to all file types, even if the viewability of those file types may be limited right from within Teams (again, because of some preference/technical limitation to having MS file types be the ones that Teams can 'manage'. Having a conversation that points a user to a particular file should have nothing to do with whether the Teams program can actually show/manipulate that file.
Please add it to the main document library file list. It's a pain to have to open the viewer to comment on the file. That makes the comments only useful for contents, and not for meta-conversations about the file. For example: Comment on a file in the document library saying: "What's this file doing in here?", or --more meta-- "Who can fix this? I can't open this file, nor the viewer pane"
Yup I'd love a feed of actual Word comments and changes so I knew when a tracked doc had changed, not sure how this would work though. At least a rollup of changes to a document I mark as following would be good so I know I need to go into the doc and address them.
Is it possible to add the conversation to to word-online? So if i open a file in word online i will see the teams conversations. Now i end up commenting both in the word doc and in team file conversation...

I agree wit Dan. In my organization we need to comment drawings which are in pdf format usually and it would be grate to have similar commenting tools that are for example in Adobe Acrobat reader - possibility to mark some areas of the document, strike trough, draw arrows, add comment which has track to exact spot in document for better undersatnding. At the moment having only conversation possibility makes it not so usable feature and if you really need to comment pdf document, you have to open it in Adobe and then its not in Teams anymore.
Thanks for getting back with me, Suphatra! I did what you said and what I see in the side panel of document viewing pane is just the conversation/chat. What I really need is for conversations to happen around a JPEG, PDF, Word Doc and have those comments stay connected to that document... even after time has gone on.
West Lucas commented
conversations about the document, directly on that document has potential as well, to build off this great idea.
Maxime Metivier commented
The conversation in a tab is useful to give general comments on a document, but it would be more productive to allow comments inside the document from the Tab. Instead of opening in browser or application. It would be a kind of Reviewer editing level.
Pushing toward integrating into a single app.
