Open links to teams in Desktop App
SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.
RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App
This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.
The team is looking into this feature and considering solutions. We will update when there is more information to share.
This is such an obvious feature. Why oh why is it not fixed yet?
Had a colleague complain about this just yesterday. At first I assumed it was user error as this is such an obvious feature that should have already have been implemented, especially as Microsoft owns and operates both Teams and Office.
Then I found this thread.
Come on guys...if there's a desktop app installed on the machine just get it to bloody open in there...this might be the MOST annoying "feature" on teams...it's a no brainer come on, fix it quickly for the love of all things internet
When it will be fixed ?

This does need to be fixed soon. I have so many coworkers that are getting frustrated by issues like this in TEAMS. It is hampering adaptation.
How can it possibly not work this way and be considered a finished product? Please help us and have links to things in Teams open in Teams.
+Vote x 10 - this is a clunky user experience and rather unnecessary. Please fix! Thanks :)
Yes please!!! It's such a waste of time!!
Please. I dont think end users believe me when I say it cant be done.
Good. we are using chat links and I end up with tons of web pages open

Please provide this option of launching links in Teams client.

LOL - better chance the world will experience a pandemic and fully recover from it before this gets done. 😂
+1 This causes a lot of frustration among our colleagues.
Oh my god so frustrating.
EIGHT MONTHS LATER AND NOTHING TO ADD???????

is there any solution for this problem yet?
When you're 7k upvotes in just one public forum to remove a product defect (instead of opening documents in their associated program, force opening them within a mediocre chat client), I fail to see the value of uservoice. I mean, is capturing telemetry data worth that much?
