Ability to Completely Disable File Sharing
There needs to be a way to completely remove the "Files" tab from Teams and disable chat attachments as well, so users within the organization cannot share files.
We have a very strict structure for our internal file sharing and data organization, and cannot have even our internal users sharing files back and forth.
If this feature doesn't get added we will be forced to abandon Teams completely and go with a 3rd party or open source route.

It can move, merge, copy, archive and export channels ✅
In addition, can change channels from private to public and vice versa
Also available in Microsoft Appsource

Wondering Why Microsoft is not providing this feature for Channel/group level. I have opted for open source tools as a substitute for MS Teams now.

This would be a great option.
Please allow the disabling of file sharing at the team/channel level as well as the for the entire organization. The more administrative flexibility this type of restriction has, that will allow for all the various use-cases there are for Teams.

I need to block the file sharing from Teams at my environment

If this feature will not be available in Teams, it will necessary to set it up in my firewall, but it is not the better way to solve this issue.
Waiting for a solution through Microsoft Team.
Agreed. This is a compliance requirement that alot of my clients are facing now since otherwise, we can't control what company files users decide to "share"
I agree, we cannot use the product unless this is disabled. I had a workaround, which was to login to each users OneDrive, and take their permissions away, effectively not allowing them to use the files button. Needed to re enable access to allow users to use OneNote and imbed files to notebook, so I now have 0 way to allow the use of Teams while blocking access to file sharing on OneDrive. Insane this isn't an option from day 1.
how to disable file sharing on TEAMS?

Any update on this case? We also need to block the file sharing from Teams at my environment.
This feature is required for our business. Will it be available in the future?

This is possible to do with this 3rd party software
They are also available at the Microsoft AppSource
I keep being asked for this feature. Are Microsoft working on it?
We need to disable file sharing via teams on our organization!
Considering security measurements. file sharing over the chat should be restricted to avoid data leakages.
We are being forced to move from Skype to Teams next year Microsoft. We need this feature added

Yes, this functionality is mandatory to be included in the Teams in order to be competent with other players with the similar applications for collaborations. Some of the companies don't want to share documents even within organization, if that data going to the Cloud. For example, Zoom have functionality to disable file transfer in the meetings.

Would like to have the option to disable file sharing in Teams (both in channels and in chats) due to customer regulatory requests.
