I have been trying to access documents stored under a Team's Files tab during a conference call. There does not appear to be any facility to show, for example, an agenda stored under the Files tab during a conference call. I have also not found anything in the Teams documentation on how to do this.
Has anyone figured out how to do this, or is it not possible?
If it is not possible, what is the point of storing things in the Files tab that one cannot refer to during a conference call?

Hi @GerardTromp - are you using the free version of Teams or as part of Office 365? I can speak to the paid version:
Hope that helps!

Hi @Kelly E,
I was in the desktop application and the left sidebar was greyed out and unresponsive (in the paid-for institutional Teams). Hence my question.
I find it odd that I would have to open a browser version to be able to achieve what I should be able to do in the application itself. Why not allow another window (if necessary disable another teleconference in the second window). Better yet allow one to simply access the files.
Anyway, thanks for the tip and yes I recognize the workaround, and notice that the web version does not grey out the waffle and side-bar.
I will check again tomorrow on another meeting to see if it was a feature of the desktop application or a bug.

I have a related question. I can get to the Teams files, but I cannot share it during the videoconference without first downloading it to my computer and then sharing the screen. Is there a way of opening a file within Teams and then sharing it on the screen with the other participants on the videoconference?

@YKHAYKIN - when you're sharing your screen, are you sharing your desktop or a window? If it's your desktop, you should be able to navigate to and share anything, even a remote desktop session. Having to download first is not expected behavior. You may want to consider a help desk ticket w/MSFT.

Thank you. Will file a ticket. Trying to Share does not give me the option of sharing the remote desktop session at this time.
