Hi guys,

 

when the channel is created, the reflected folder is created on SP library. there are some issues though:

- the folder names are not the same. definitely they are not changed along with the channel name change.

- after channel is deleted, it seems that folders with the files stays.

 

for comfort we are synchronizing SP lib to a local drive and work on files directly, instead of using Teams. the problem is to remember which folder is which channel.

 

is there any scripted method to get the list of channels+underlaying folders?

 

this would be helpful to address both issues.

Also, it is not possible to rename the folder without breaking the link with the channel...

That issue was discussed in this thread: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Issues-changing-channel-name-OneDrive-folder/...

Solution
With existing Graph API for Microsoft Teams, we can't get the underlaying channel's spo folder.

that's a shame...

This needs to be fixed ASAP!

 

Even if you go to

https://sap.sharepoint.com/teams/>>>Channel Name<<</Shared Documents/

And change the subfolder outside the U/I it still recreates the original name folder mentioned just below the Files TAB in MS Team.

 

MS should allow a [click and change] option under the icon (i.e. the name of the channel) under the Files Tab in MS Teams    

 

@nExoR nExoiSi know you have posted that long ago but now you have the option to renew the library inside the sharepoint but still it is not syncing !!!

@Pervaiz Dostiyar "you have the option to renew the library inside the sharepoint" - can you please elaborate on this? a link with to some doc maybe? 

thx for the info!

@nExoR nExoiSfirst sorry for late reply, secondly when you go to the SharePoint documents section and see all the libraries for each of the channels you can easily rename that it is not "renew" it was miss spell but it is to rename it since if you have created a channel name bird the underlying library will be bird too but now that you want the Channel name to be blackbird the library name will not change and it will be still bird so you can manually rename it from libraries.
