download file progress indicator
need file download progress indicator
Every time I restart a download, the previous download is lost. If a network interruption occurs, there is no way to resume a previously started download. This is very annoying and so below standard.
So glad I discovered this page and realized why my files were corrupted. We host large software files on teams and I couldn't figure out why my downloads were never clean.
I will be downloading from the web browser via chrome until they provide some sort of download indication. I would click download, nothing happens, assume it downloaded quickly and move on to the next.

A Workaround to this... I used the web version and download it from there, chrome gives you the progress unlike desktop.
Found a way luckily. Once you download a file from Teams, it will be available in the Downloads folder.
Try to delete it using Shift+Delete and there you will see the actual size of the file.

LOL I can't believe we're even discussing this. Click "Download" on a huge file, nothing happens. Click it a few more times - nothing. No progress indication - NOTHING. Some time later, you get notifications about your downloads finishing, one by one.
ARE YOU JOKING ME?? How did this get into Production????
MS want Teams to be taken seriously, but the UI is so amatuerish! Been trying to download 13 GB of files individually, or as one big .zip all day! No progress bar, no feedback on success or failure, and the underlying issue of course - abysmally slow download speeds in the first place!
Tried desktop and web app, three different computers, on three different networks. Download speeds are pathetic, even after creating a link to the file and downloading via a browser, getting 8.7 KB/sec on a 200 Mb link!, should be getting close to 20 MB/Sec. Fix your lousy product MS! :(

Adding to the already angry people.
Skype had its issues but most basic option were in.
Now you come back with a proud smile serving us with a Beta version of a half baked system.... Get your acts together.
Upgrade has a meaning that you seem not to understand.
Stop adding useless options like backgrounds and 1000 cameras at one time (add some in Live Event BTW), Make it multitasking not just one window at a time and get stuck in a Meeting creation while someone is calling you.
Get a proper dev and tester pool, none of this should have left the lab!
TEAMS, as it presents now is just a shame for MS:-(
Absolutely! I'm downloading a large ZIP folder and have to guess when it's done by continually trying to open the folder. If the files can't be found, I need to wait longer.
This is needed on both the installed program and the web app
I had to check the resource monitor to even know that it was working

Just need a similar progress bar to what we see when we upload files. Very hard to tell if a large file download has finished and I often have to go and trawl through the logs to see if I got a completion message.

This is a basic feature, yet so needed. If MS wants us to use Teams in day to day business tasks, they can`t ignore this feature, which is wanted since 2017...
Bump because this should be considered basic and standard in this day and age.
When downloading large and/or multiple files that get automatically put inside a zip, the zip shows up in file explorer, as you'd expect, but:
- How am I supposed to know it's done?
- How am I supposed to know roughly how long it might take to complete the download?
What if I open the zip or attempt to unzip it and not realise I haven't got all the files? What if I'm working from home with relatively slow broadband that could be impacting on others also working from home in my household but I really need those files and I'm now impacting on their work? I can't give them an estimate for when the download may be completed, I can't be expected to leave my computer on overnight to download files.
If I can get a download progress function in a web browser (even in Edge...) what is stopping you from putting such a thing in Teams?!
Forrest Trepte commented
When downloading large files, I have no idea how much progress they are making. Unless I sit there staring at Teams the whole time I have no idea if/when the download is finished.
The best workaround I have found is not to directly use Teams to download files. Instead, I recommend using the OneDrive sync feature or the Open in SharePoint button and then use your web browser to download the files from SharePoint.
It is a real shame that such basic funtion is missing! And it is in unacceptable in a professional environment. Due to this missing function I didn´t realise that some files were missing after the download which caused severe misunderstandings in a due diligence process because of me complaining about supposably missing information...very, very unhappy with teams/ share point - unfortunately not for the first time!
Indeed, this sucks big time! Most of the time, the files I download from MS Teams do not get downloaded in full and I will have absolutely no freaking idea about it at all. Only after I use the downloads in the model and follow up with painstaking analysis do I realize in the end that something must have gone amiss in the beginning! Geez! Shame on Microsoft.

This is beyond unacceptable but this is how i am currently trying to solve this issue. Long winded yes! Simple for MS to correct? Yes
Only way i can work out how to track the download is:
Download the video from the meeting resources > wait for notification to confirm download has started > make the download fail in some way > go to Teams > Files (on left hand side) > downloads > recording will be there and it will say failed.
It now shows the file size in the downloads window.
Now start another download
Then open the normal downloads folder through Windows Explorer and keep refreshing until the video being downloaded matches the file size that is displayed in Teams
How stupid is this!!!
Brendon Owens commented
Come on MS - this is a rookie error.
Is there another way to download these files? A way where we can at least see that they are complete. This is ridiculous. Anyone happen to know a way so we do not have to download via Teams?
so bad. click fuiles and saw multiple downloads, dont know when to start, sleep or stop
People have been asking for this feature since 2017?
Seriously Microsoft? WTF.
Slack here we come.

Please add this feature ASAP
