I recently started using teams and I want to move a file or folder to another folder within teams, but the move and copy function are missing from the options.  Any help?

@Jeepguy8080 We are also missing it. Do you have any further info?

Hi @Jeepguy8080 - This could be related to the allow or prevent custom script settings. Check out this Microsoft documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=397546

 

In particular, look at this note:

 

If SharePoint was set up for your organization before 2015, your custom script settings might still be set to "Not Configured" even though in the SharePoint admin center they appear to be set to prevent users from running custom script. In this case, users won't be able to copy items between SharePoint sites and between OneDrive and SharePoint. On the Settings page of the SharePoint admin center, to accept the custom script settings as they appear, select OK, and enable cross-site copying. For more info about copying items between OneDrive and SharePoint, see Copy files and folders between OneDrive and SharePoint sites
