File sharing in Microsoft Teams

Teams is your hub for teamwork where people collaborate on files, communicate, and streamline processes. In an effort to provide a consistent sharing experience across Microsoft 365—no matter where you share your file, whether through Office apps, Outlook, OneDrive, or SharePoint, the sharing experience is similar—we’re bringing some of the sharing capabilities you already know to Teams. Now, users will be able to set familiar sharing and access controls directly in Teams with the added option to share a link with a specific private or group chat. This means only people in that chat have access to the shared content. Shared links intelligently reconcile to file name and all sharing follows the admin settings and configured policies.

Known Folder Move in FRE


Our new first run experience now allows you to select which Windows known folders you would like to sync to OneDrive. Moving your important folders to OneDrive allows you to have the power of cloud in your most productive folders on Windows. This decision was brought into the first-run experience to give you the best OneDrive sync experience from initial sign-in.

Teams Meeting & Calling recordings stored in OneDrive and SharePoint


Teams meeting and call recordings can now be stored in your OneDrive for Business or in SharePoint, providing the ability to share recordings with guests or external users, access meeting recordings faster, and manage recordings with security and compliance controls available to other file types in Microsoft 365. Teams Admins can select their recording storage location by updating policies using PowerShell. Learn more
