Is there a list anywhere that highlights the missing features in the default Teams document library as found on the Files tab, versus the features in a standard SPOL document library?  The show stopper for us is the inability to turn off Document Version History to allow for multiple users collaborating on the same document.

? Versioning has nothing to do with the ability to co-author. Also Teams will soon have Files tab that is SharePoint. But the big differences are views / Metadata columns and You can't share right from within Teams.

Hi Chris,

 

Please explain how more than one person can edit a document with versioning enabled.

 

Tks

You use any modern Office client or Office web apps, to open a file in place and co-authoring just works.... versioning has no affect on this ability.

Where are you getting your information that versioning affects any of this? If you don't use co-authoring or a client that supports it or a file that supports it, then the files are locked for editing, until released, then others can modify it.

It’s more with do not require check in / out and auto save

Auto-Save isn't actually required, well kind of loll, But yeah, the check-in / out feature will keep co-authoring from happening, but versioning is now required as adam pointed out, but it def. does not affect anything other than storage space on the tenant :).
