Opening a URL in Teams (from SharePoint files)
When opening a URL added to the library in SharePoint, the experience in Teams is not the same as from within SharePoint. Teams user needs to download and open, whereas in SP the link just opens to display in a new tab.
A URL can only be added via SharePoint, this feature would also be useful to add directly via Teams.
Would love to see this working. Would make accessing forms from folders possible which would be a massive plus for me!

Hope this will be option some day. The problem with Teams is that the information is scattered so I though I could create like a "table of contents" with links but nah... links are not working natively within files.
Really agree - it's incredibly frustrating not to be able to use links, especially given the functionality exists on the same object in SharePoint view.
I agree. Major glitch there. In my humble opinion, Teams files should behave similarly to Explorer files or OneDrive files and EXACTLY like Sharepoint.
Actually, there should be a way that all these could share the same source and they would only be a "shell", so that when you edit a file in one, it is also changed and editable in the others and vice versa.
I just shared an excel document stored on SharePoint link in Teams chat and it downloads the file. I added the "?Web=1" after having to go into edit mode and create a link and that works to open in the browser. WHY DOES THE LINK DOWNLOAD AND NOT OPEN IN THE NATIVE APP? This is really getting frustrating. I tried the "ms-excel:ofe|u|" prefix and the link creator said it was not a valid link and would not let me even try it. Any help appreciated. I agree with another poster that having to add extensions and prefixes cannot be sustainable, either. Behavior of the link should not be based on settings in individual systems either for collaboration.
1. We should be able to create the URL in Teams.
2. It should not require a download and execute from Teams (it does appear if created in SharePoint)
3. In both Teams and SharePoint, a preview should be possible (valuable, but lower priority)

Same need, will ease navigation between multiple Teams & SharePoints.
==> create & open .url files like in SharePoint <==
