Like Teams quite a bit. Except for searching on a file.

 

When I search for a file, I find the file. I get a list of files with like names. I can open the file. But if I want to replace it, Teams doesn't tell me the path to the file.

 

I can 

Open the file

Click the file menu - that will tell me PART of the file path in SharePoint.

Very often, I want to save a new file in the same folder as similar files. But it's difficult to find that folder.

Can you return the entire path from the search? And when I right click, can you allow me the option not only to get a link but to get a file path? or Open File Location like I can in Windows?

@TimCD glad you are enjoying Teams!  Thanks for the feedback around full file path locations.  A similar suggestion is over on UserVoice to enable the same.  Please go and add your vote for that feature so the teams can continue to innovate and deliver a quality product with community driven input for ways to improve.
