Sorry we're having trouble getting your notebook Teams

Microsoft Teams is set to get a new integration with OneDrive, according to a new report.

According to a report, Microsoft is working on a Your Teams section of OneDrive, so you can get to your favorite Teams files faster.

Microsoft has also been working on an integration between Teams and Outlook that would allow users to create a meeting in Outlook and then add it to a channel in teams. The feature was spotted recently, but it should be rolling out soon for all users.

Microsoft has been making it easier for users to collaborate between its services. Microsoft Office apps have already integrated with Teams, allowing users to easily create word documents and excel spreadsheets within the platform.

How it works

According to Microsoft, users can find and work with all their files in Teams via a More Places section on the web. 

This change is being made from the current version of OneDrive on the web, where users can find a Microsoft Teams Chat Files and Microsoft Teams Data section in My Files.

The OneDrive integration will also allow you to search for shared files from within the app itself, as well as use Microsoft’s Fluent Design System-inspired Acrylic material design elements. 

Additionally, users that have been given permissions will also be able to restore deleted items from the Recycle Bin directly from the new Your Teams section on OneDrive.

Listed features

Microsoft announced the new Your Teams section in OneDrive at its recent meeting of the Windows 365 Roadmap and aims to release it to select people soon. 

The company may have to wait a few months after that for general availability, so don’t expect it immediately. 

The team organizer will get a new preview panel that can show different files on different devices. You’ll also be able to see which files have been shared with other users and assign permissions so that only specific users can access them.

Microsoft app integration

The company is building integrations into its Office apps to make them more useful and convenient on the desktop, and it’s making Teams available on more platforms.

 As part of the Microsoft 365 family, it’s also opening up the software to more hardware manufacturers.

The latest round of updates includes a Teams app for Chrome, bringing that service to the world’s second-most-used browser. It also includes a new Teams integration with OneDrive, so you can access files right from your desktop.

With Teams, you’ll be able to define your own workspace from within the app itself. Furthermore, you’ll be able to add users from your Outlook or Windows accounts, letting you use your favorite apps right from within Teams rather than having them tethered to Skype.

Microsoft is also looking at letting users control their Teams calls with Bluetooth headsets, which would go beyond the current functionality by letting you switch between devices while a call is going on.
