MS Teams

hi -

Is there a way to stop Members from being able to upload files to a Teams channel?

Reason: I want to force members to edit a single version of a file, but can foresee many people uploading their own versions from their own files.


RE: MS Teams

Hi James,

This isn't possible as it goes against the who idea behind teams.


These may be approaches which deal with your concern:

- If you are keeping files in your teams shared space then you can always refer to that file and keep your versions under control
- following on from the above you can add that specific file to one of the team tabs - this makes the file super obvious and easy to find
- If you're not using the team shared space then you can share out from a personal 365 shared file via the link - and you can also control the edit permissions on that
- if you have the file on a shared drive not manged through 365 then I think you can create a link to the file but that would need to testing to cope with your specific setup. You may end up sharing a file path rather than a link

I hope that was useful. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Microsoft Office tip:

Using the Quick Access Toolbar in Office 2010

The Quick Access Toolbar is included in virtually every Office product, including Outlook 2010, Word 2010, Excel 2010, and PowerPoint 2010.

You will find the Quick Access Toolbar in the top-left side of the window. To begin, click the Customize button (it's the little black arrow at the end of the toolbar).

Simply click the commands you want to include.

Virtually any command can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. Click the More Commands option and a new window will open from where you can browse the commands including those not on the ribbon.
