Allow opening of PDF documents directly into Adobe Reader DC for Editing docuemnts stored in SharePoint
Adobe Reader DC can Check-Out and Edit documents directly from SharePoint, but there's no way to initiate this from Teams. Instead you need to go to SharePoint, copy the link, and then open Reader DC, File, Open, and paste the link. This is cumbersome and time consuming for users who frequently edit PDF documents which are stored in Teams (SharePoint).
We would like a one-click to open in Reader DC from within Teams and an option to make this the default single-click behaviour.
Hopefully Microsoft's recent partnership with Adobe will help this one along.

Make it happen! We need this very much.
SUPER important! One of the main reasons people at our firm prefer to use good ol' folders over Teams!

If MS Office app have the option to open using Desktop app, please make it possible with PDF files as well. Thank you.
Tanya Joice commented
We are also looking for this option as a lot of files are posted as pdf and some machines will display a preview other machines will not. It would be great to just be able to select a program to open it with.

Do it NOW!
Really? In 2019 this is still an issue. The more we use Office 365 the more reasons we find to dislike it. This is just another one. Basic functionality goes unaddressed for years. :-(

this is an necessary feature. please encourage others to vote for it!

Absolutely missing the opportunity to open PDF-files in Teams directly in an the Adope desktop version. As it is now I have stopped saving PDF-files in teams as it is too troublesome to reopen them in Adope Acrobat DC.
Thomas Smith commented
An option to "Open in ..." or "Open in Default Viewer" would be amazing!!!
Not hard to integrate & would allow for MANY people to do work outside of the Office 365 realm, but still integrated with Teams/SharePoint.

Not everyone has the option to edit PDF files, but it would help a lot if I could simply open/view PDF files stored in Teams directly with Acrobat Reader.
Should be quite simple to add this option to the right-click menu, additional to 'Open online' and 'Open in SharePoint'.
I'm surprised that this idea gets so few votes and that Microsoft doesn't seem to pick it up yet.
Michael Scheible commented
Yes, please implement this as soon as possible
Casey King commented
This has been requested multiple times from my company users.
Jonathan Desimini commented
This is such an easy add. Get past the pride and collaborate with Adobe and watch Teams success soar.
Otherwise the frustration will lead this as just a skype without or without video and sharing files. Make it a real tool for business Microsoft.
This is what we need.

Agreed, need this functionality
