How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Activate hyperlinks in PDF File Viewer

Currently when I open a PDF in MS Teams "PDF File Viewer" I cannot click on the hyperlinks. Instead I have to download the document or open it in SharePoint just to click a link. Such a waste of time!

    +1 to Karen Chambers. If you don't know this is an issue, here's what you do as a user:
    Clicked on the orange pdf ribbon
    Attempt to click on a link
    Sit confused for awhile
    Maybe ask someone if they're having trouble
    Exit out or maybe notice the elipsis at the top
    Download it
    Open the download
    Click on a link
    Get to the website
    ...you're so over it already.

    This is the same for Word documents, and I suspect other file types as well. In the case of Word. you can select the option to edit the document to click the link or copy text. This is only an issue in the desktop client, as it works fine in the web client.
