You can move files:

  • Inside the same team.

You can copy files:

  • Inside the same team.
  • Across teams.
  • Throughout OneDrive and a team.
  • From a SharePoint tab to the same document library, a team, or a OneDrive.

Moreover, once you’re editing an Office file from within Teams, you can rename it by picking the name of the file or by choosing File > Rename.

If you access an Office file beyond Teams using Office for desktop or Office for the web, you’ll even be able to rename and move or save a copy from there.
