Hi,

Is there any way to update/edit files uploaded in Teams using office apps instead of editing online?

When a user try editing file using office apps and after work done when try to save, receives following error:

"File was not uploaded to the server. Do you want to save a copy of the file or close the file and discard your changes?"

Any suggestions.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Jayashri

That's not the normal experience, it should work just fine. Which version of Office Apps do you have? It should be the version that comes with Office 365, Pro Plus or some new name it just got I don't remember yet :)

@Steven Collier : Thanks for your reply. Office 365 is the version. Only single user is facing issue and he is owner of that content & site. Should I repair office of his laptop?

I have tried repairing Office 365 on user's system and it worked. User is able to edit and save documents from Teams using Desktop App .
