Hello Teams Community,

 

Please i need your help on this.

 

A teacher shared files under the MS teams' file Tab and the files are modified by students. That editing option should be disabled. 

 

How do we disable the editing option for the file?

In order to do this, you must open Shareapoint and under site permissions set members group to read

@IBN Hi, as explained in these two blogs (Managing Teams Files, Guide to Teams Permissions), files shared in Teams are stored in a SharePoint site, so you must configure them on SharePoint. Simply go to the files tab in Teams, choose to open the file in SharePoint, and manage access based on what you prefer (which, in your situation, should be 'read only'.
