I have the Teams app on Windows 10. I was making a lot of changes to the folders and files and it was easier to sync that sharepoint site to my PC and make them there, syncing to Sharepoint in our Office 365 account.

 

The only way I could figure out how to get the Teams app to show what I had done was to kill the Microsoft Teams app in the WIn10 Task Manager and restart it. Then it was all ok.

 

There needs to either be a refresh button or something more intuitive than whatever does exist. Honestly it should routinely poll the server and make sure all changes are reflected. Otherwise people will be working on the wrong stuff potentially.

Ideally I would work in the Teams app but what took me an hour to do manally in the WIndows Explorer in the sync'd Sharepoint site would have taken 10 hours through the Teams UI. Now that it is all set up, we'll continue working in the Teams UI.

Add good suggestion. Add it to Uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/ or use the Feedback button in the Teams software.

It is here. This seems to be more of a bug though than a feature request. It would be equivalent to Outlook 2016 on the desktop not reflecting changes made in my Office 365 Outlook portal until I exited and relaunched Outlook on my PC.

6 months and this issue still isn't resolved? I expect more from Microsoft!

Yup. And the idea posted at UserVoice has since been deleted by MS. :\

Any update on this? It seems to still be an issue, and a rather glaring omission.

And hitting the refresh button in teams doesn’t work?

@adam deltinger Where is the refresh button in the Teams app?  I cannot find one (and F5 has no effect.)

You need to hit the profile button up right and click log out

@adam deltinger - logging out / in - there has to be a better solution than that!

And just switching away from the files tab and back wont work?
