Add a link to a File under Files
Please add the ability to 'link' to a File in another location, within the Files tab in any given Channel. This way, we don't have to have a SharePoint list to track URLs of Files, the Files can remain where they are and be owned by whom they are and we don't accidentally create duplicates of Files.
An example is that we have a team for an orientation program. We also have a team for the Talent Development Team. We store final files in the TD Team but would like to link the files in the Files tab of the orientation team's general channel>Files tab. That way, Talent Development owns and maintains the file, but the file is shared with another team/channel.
We have done something similar by adding tabs within channels linking to the files in their original location (such as a project plan XLS that crosses multiple teams and channels) but that works only if you have one or two files.
When you have many files, creating so many tabs doesn't make a lot of sense.
I would be happy to share examples - just message me and we'll set up a call.
