Share a file across multiple team
I have created several teams for my school (Yr 7 Maths, Yr 8 Maths, Yr 9 Maths) and while most of the time each team would be working specifically within that team, sometimes there may be a department file that we need to work on. Can I share the file between teams, and have the file constantly update and sync across all teams?
The sharing of such files will need to be done via the O365 app (word, excel, etc) as it follows the logic defined by the Office app being used.
Here is a video which provides some guidance – https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Video-Share-documents-in-Office-365-1438f676-ee5c-40cb-a1f3-f814e649d2ea
If I have 6 classes and I have to 7 breakout rooms per class. I would have to individually upload one file 42 times. A shorter way of completing this is to copy the file find each channel one at a time and copy. I still need to do this over and over again. If I click the share button in the document I would have to type up every students name so they get it. Am I doing this wrong or is there a better way?
This is so incredibly annoying to have to constantly upload files multiple times and create multiple announcements - just make Teams do it! :) Scott is right - this is a real annoyance and a good suggestion and your workaround is not good.

NO NO NO, the suggestion is sound. This is why we provide feedback ... not to be told to do something else.

I understand where this anonymous comment is coming from, but even organizing them neatly in OneDrive means you have to go back, again, and send the file to a different team. Everything should be able to happen at once; if it doesn't, then the app is just making things more difficult and time consuming.
I quite like this idea. Do you think it could work if you could keep your original file in your OneDrive and be able to really easily add link to that original OneDrive file? I think it would have to be seamless for the user.
