A file with two different chat streams
One of the files in our Channel's SharePoint library has also been added individually as a tab (we did this so we had one-click access to the file)
Depending on which way you access the file you will see two different chats
ie. the chat from visiting the SP tab and clicking the file, is different to the chat from clicking on that same file in the Tabs
Basically the same file has two different chat streams...not good!!
We have now deleted the tab going directly to the file to avoid accidental splintered chat on a file. Good to see the chat from the deleted tab is still kept in the Conversation feed, and when you click on the linked file at the top of the chat (which has changed from a word icon to a link icon) it says "this tab is deleted"

I support this request. I know that chat for Tabs is separate to chat on a document. In this case, it would be useful for them to be one and the same.
A document may be pinned to a channel for a time. Then removed to make room for another.
At least after removing a document tab, the chat remains, even though it's not visible from the document.
Maybe look at exposing the document level chat when it is pinned as a tab.
