Have created a ticket on the 16th of November with Microsoft Support because of a Microsoft Teams environment where we can't delete a Wiki tab. We can create new Wiki tabs and can delete them, but the first one that was created can't be deleted. Anyone else experiencing this? No error message is shown.

Is this happening in all the channels in all the Teams or only in specific Teams? By the way, expected behavior is you can delete the Wiki Tab with no problems. Can you share the ticket ID here?

This is only happening in 1 Microsoft Team and this one only has 1 channel (general). New Wiki tabs can be deleted, just 1 tab that is having this issue. Understand that we should normally be able to delete the Wiki, this is why I created the ticket. Ticket # is 12124766. Have also provided logs to Microsoft Support when I created the ticket. 

Have you tried removing through Teams desktop version? Can you try renaming it and then delete?

Have tried both, didn't work. We also tried to delete it on the SPO end, but that also wasn't removing the tab. Based on what I have seen, this can only be fixed by MSFT. Wanted to know if someone else was facing this issue. 

Did you check the channel's permissions? 

- Are you an owner of the channel?

- If  you are a member, perhaps the option "Allow members to delete and restore channels" is disabled.

 

I manage a lot of tenants, haven't experienced this issue & I did some tests on multiple tenants with Private & Public channels, with both member and owner permissions. Everything is working as intended for me.

I'm indeed an owner. Have already checked everything and concluded that it's not something we can fix. Have shared the logs back when I created the ticket (16th of November) and now Microsoft support is again asking for the same logs... 

Microsoft support has made zero progress in 2 Months... 

 

All they have to do is delete a tab in Microsoft Teams.  smh

I am sorry to hear your disappointment with us and I understand the frustration that such a small issue is taking so much time. Unfortunately we still have no updates from the product group and there's currently no movement on the case. As you already know, your patience is greatly appreciated and I'm hoping I'll be able to provide an update soon. Please keep in mind that I am doing everything I can in order to see this through.

 

Anyway, as soon as I have any further updates, I'll let you know. In the meanwhile if you have any other concerns, please let me know.

 

Thank you for contacting Microsoft Support and I wish you a great day.

No updates. Still waiting for someone at Microsoft to delete a tab... Very difficult to explain this to my customer and the user reporting this bug. It's obvious that Microsoft has given this bug a low priority and that they haven't done anything.

Still waiting for Microsoft to delete the tab. 

I would contact them once again on this!
Solution

Hi Adam,


Thanks, but not needed as the issue just got solved. We had a call with MSFT support and they asked us to use Graph to delete the tab and that worked. It would have been nice if someone would have pointed us into that direction earlier vs asking for more logs.

 

In case anyone else is experiencing this issue where a tab can't be deleted, explore the Graph options to see if that works for you as well.

OH! Thats great news! Also great to know about this worked out through the graph!!
