Currently all file downloads from Microsoft Teams go to the Downloads folder. We are releasing a new feature that enables users to be able to choose their preferred download location for downloading files from Teams or specify a download location for each download.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 94719
When this will happen:
We will begin rollout in early September and expect rollout to be completed by late October.
How this will affect your organization:
To enable this feature, there is a new setting introduced under Files settings, which allows users to change the default download location to their preferred download location.
Additionally, there is a toggle, which if enabled, will prompt the user to select the location for each download.
