start conversation on file without opening file
Starting conversations is currently only possible once you have a file open in read mode. We should be able to start a conversation on a file from the [...] context menu. Anyone agree?
This is very useful
This is a necessity! I agree that it's a daily pain that this function doesn't exist.
completely agree...I was searching for Start Conversation for a while before giving up and Googling it; much more intuitive to have in the context menu.
This is DAILY PAIN! And for people who don't want to use Teams this is one of the excuse about poor navigation and support for the MOST COMMON PROCESSES in document handling.
As a normal user I want to be able to "Start conversation" on a document anywhere I have the document listed.
- there is a "Start Conversation" menu item on each document in the Files section
- there is a "Start Conversation" menu item on each document in a folder within a Teams file area

Yep, this annoys me every time. Even better if I could do this inside e.g. Word.
Agreed. As Teams rolled out here the change in mindset with regards to filing took a little adjustment from the previous 'NAS-esque' approach.
Then conversation channels became sprinkled with conversations linked to the file with 'Here' to an @ mentioned colleague. Works but feels a bit naff.
A different approach could be for one to find the file(s), select their ellipsis menu, select 'Share' or 'Notify', choose from colleagues and press 'Send' or 'Notify'
I fully agree.
Just add it to the "..." menu for each document in the list
Yes. This is completely useless as implement.
Every time you show a file (especially form "Files...") you must have "Start conversation".
You don't want to open the file or navigate to it in the file system to start a conversation.

This would be very useful for collaborating on files / documents where an embedded editor / viewer doesn't exist in Teams.
