This feature request is still in the works. I hope to have more updates soon. I’ll keep you posted.
Is there any update on this? I get asked 3-4 times every week. It seems small, but would be a big win if our users had this capability.
Our Finance department will not use the Teams interface since they can't check out files without going to the sharepoint site directly. Are there plans to allow this from Teams?
Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
The team is working on changes to the desktop client so recently opened tabs are kept in memory, as long as it doesn’t use too much memory.
I will keep you posted as we make further progress.
This is one of the biggest complaints we get from users.
Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.
Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.
