Better error feedback
Can we please get some better feedback when an error occures? Like when you try to change the name of a document that is not checked out there is just a little pop up in the right hand lower corner saying 'there is a problem' and that is it.
While when I open the Team 'SharePoint' in actual SharePoint the error I get doing the same is way more clear and actually states that the document is not checked out so you can't change the name.
Same when uploading a file that has the same name as a file that actually exists. Teams just gives an error with 0 feedback. While doing the same in SharePoint actually tells you there is already a file with that name, and then even gives you the option to replace the file, something Teams does not.
I would love for the Teams 'SharePoint' browser to give some better and more helpfull feedback on errors so there is no need to open up SharePoint itself to get the feedback needed.
For me, part of the problem is that the error box isn't big enough to show the entire error message.
If I click on it, it disappears. You'd think clicking on it would expand it to show more details, yeh?
Hovering over the error also doesn't show any extra information.
And there's no obvious place to go see the error history for more info. Is there somewhere?
Looking forward to this being improved. I have no idea why I can't move my files around sometimes -- I get errors but just can't read what they say.

I just tried to upload a file and a little dialogue popped up in the corner with an error logo and a part of the filename...
what's the error?
why did it happen?
how can i make it stop being an error and upload my file?
I'd like this, too.
For me, the errors that pop up in Teams in the bottom right seem to be cut off (shows '...') so I can't read the full error. When I click it, it disappears. When I hover over it, it doesn't provide any more information. And the error only shows for a couple of seconds.
I'd like the Teams error popup to:
1. Be bigger so it shows all the information I need to know to fix the problem -- the file, the issue, and how to fix.
2. Stay on the screen longer, or perhaps even remain until dismissed (if that's the case, then maybe include some sort of time stamp to show when it happened).
3. Be clickable so that if I want to know more details or find online support, it takes me there.
