In Firefox or Explorer, clicking on links to Team Channels, only gives colleagues the option to 'Download the windows app', which they cannot do at work.

When using the Edge browser, the 'Use the web app instead' option does show correctly.

Is there any way to alter those Team site URLs, so they default to the web app option?

Hi @brcoll

Have opened a uservoice on it here linking back to this thread

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38632123-links-to-channels-ope...

Would recommend voting on it to push it up the agenda! Just to note, may be some time before Microsoft picks it up if ever so would also recommend raising it at a future AMA.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
