In our testing the Team Client does not allow for accessing of files (or anything) while in an offline state...correct? That being the case, is it expected that the user access the underlying Sharepoint Doc Library with the Preview One Drive Client and sync for offline access? Is there any thought to making this process more streamlined through the Teams Interface rather than fragmenting the UX by going back to Sharepoint?
