Allow teamsite saved files to group chats
I would like to have links in group chats to files saved on my teamsites so we can collaborate on a file or refer to the file in the chat thread.

This is an important enhancement, Microsoft. Our company just started with Teams / SharePoint / OneDrive in the past several months, and we need to control the creation of channels. We need to reserve channels for long-term uses. Group chat is a better feature for us for short-term projects, because it's better for us to store shared files in a controlled file structure in our team SharePoint drive, which might not be based on channels, and then link to those files in a group chat File tab. Currently, the group chat File tab allows you to only upload files from your computer or create a link to a file on your personal OneDrive. This defeats the purpose of SharePoint, because in order to store files in a controlled manner for the entire team but make them easily accessible to those actually working on them, we would have to download the file to our personal computer or move them to someone's OneDrive, and then add them to the group chat Files tab.
