Is there a way to reference other teams items, like uploaded files, other wiki pages etc. when editing a wiki page?
I mean just by starting to type and then it would present autocomplete options ... similar to when you start typing "[" in Confluence.

Not at the moment, you would have to copy/paste links from files etc into the Teams Wiki. Its a pretty bare bones wiki.
A OneNote tab has more of this Wiki like functionality, it you type [[page name]] oyu get a link to another page, and if you want a full browser ui it's all there.

Thanks for the reply.
Is there a roadmap for planned wiki features and improvements?

Not that I've seen.
My personal opinion is that the Teams Wiki is really a holding pattern and SharePoint will become the goto platform for article like content. Its a long way there already in modern sites already, rich text is available now, embedding documents, comments. Likes and shares coming soon, as is the ability to have SharePoint pages as tabs in Teams.

Which is really weird - Microsoft, I'm looking at you - because when building a Wiki in SP2007, this functionality WAS available.... why is not implemented in the current version?

The essence of a wiki is being able to link - quickly - between pages.
The "Wiki" in Teams is NOT a wiki, and should not be called that.

Agreed- this is just an embarrassment, pushing for people to adopt Teams while the 'wiki' module isn't nearly as good as decade+ old software and the initial wiki offerings.

What about users who just want a functional wiki. I have spent years trying to like `sharepoint` and have failed to do so. I *do* like `Teams` a lot, partly because I don't have to interact with `sharepoint` and the full office environment (great integrations!).

I realize that this is an older post. But the info is still relevant. Give this a try:
In Teams, go under your Files tab. Hover over the file you'd like to share and click on the 3 dot ellipses menu button. In the menu, select get link and click on copy to copy the link to your clipboard. Now, in wiki, Click the Insert Link button on the "ribbon" at the top. Key in what you'd like to link to say in the first field and the actual link address in the second field and click insert. You should now have a workable link to a file stored within your Teams files. This should work for cross referencing Wiki's as well.
Maybe this is known info by now. I hope this helps someone though.

@Fixer It does : ) However we need that functionality to [[add link]] and then have it auto create the page on select! Great for documenting. Add to that a resource selector to find same or similar content using word and pattern searching (regex) and you have a powerful interconnected data lake to run from.

@Martin Morrey I couldn't agree more. This product literally disqualifies itself from its own name.

@Fixer I am unable to follow any of the guidance you provide. How does one "hover" over a file and click the menu elipses at the same time? The next instruction doesnt seem possible either.

@FixerThis is most like the best that can be done currently, but instead of opening up the document in MS Teams, as would happen if a person navigated to "Files," MS Teams tries to download the file and open it in a separate browser.

@Petter_Ivarsson Yes, really. Wiki's have clean URLs and link support to other pages. We're being forced into Microsoft Teams, but don't need Sharepoint bloatware? Just a bunch of techies trying to share information, make it easy to search? And NO, I don't want to put content in separate files like a word or excel file. That makes it less searchable.
Can MS please provide a simple, straight forward Wiki for techies?

What if I want to attach a file that is not showing up under "Recent" in the files tab? I have something on my desktop that I want to attach.

Irritating there is a [[wiki]] function in the 2016 desktop app- works great but the online version fails this functionality.
Autodesk made the same mistake building all its various CAD platforms on top of AutoCAD - Microsoft is making the same mistaking building all its platforms on sharepoint.

@Fixer Very practical solution! Though a bit cumbersome, it does work!! The TEAMS WIKI tool should manage links in a much more thorough way...! Thanks!!
