I've read in various places that a "full SharePoint Library experience" (with metadata support etc) will come to Teams "before the end of 2018". Well I haven't seen this yet - does anyone here know?

 

I know about the workaround to add a website-tab with the url to a doc library, but it's not quite the same thing.

Hi Erik,

Still working on the new files experience in Teams. See roadmap here

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=SharePoint%2CTeams

The last update was 18th January. I would keep an eye on this roadmap item. If it doesn’t come out before 14th February come along to the Teams AMA here on the community. I’ll ask the question too.

Hope that answers your question. If you search the M365 roadmap with SharePoint and Teams you can see what’s been launched like SharePoint pages in tabs, and what is still in development.

Best, Chris
Cool! It definitely answers the question - thanks for the link! Very useful.

Hi there, any news on this feature?

@Christopher Hoard 

 

 

Any word if any of the new features coming out this year will allow the the ability of a tab to apply a specific filter, folder, or specific view for SharePoint libraries?

The roadmap says June 2019!

lets hope its gets rolled out soon
Yeah, I’m not entirely sure how it looks but there is more metadata and views options

@adam deltinger 

 

I guess it's a wait and see thing.  Hopefully there will be some type of mechanism to lock a tab in on specific data rather than having to manually browse or select views every time.  Kind of a basic requirement for channelizing projects, etc.

As I said, I’m not one to promise anything :) , but I believe the new experience will honor the set default views etc...

@Chris Webb probably knows this

Adam
havent seen it so don’t know for sure but surely you would think it will respect the default library view. I just hope it doesn’t get pushed back more.
Yeah, been through that a few times now! :)

@Chris Webb 

 

I agree, I would expect this and I am hoping for a bit more such as set the tab to a specific view, filter, or folder.  Some of these are already in the User Voice however if we ever get these I would expect them to be part or after the Full SharePoint Library experience.

I won’t count on being able to change the folder itself for the files tab! It will still be the corresponding channel folder in SharePoint
If you need to do that, use a SharePoint page and have a doc library webpart on it, those can be filtered to a folder.
You can also use a website tab and add the url to that folder in SharePoint!
It works but there’s some caveats like not being able to create new files etc from it

any updates on this?

 

Roadmap says Q2 2019.....

Doesnt really matter what I say, cause it’s been moved forward so many times now!! But hang in there, it’s coming :)
That is a lovely message I need to forward to my client next week.. but thanks : )
Then you say september! It’s what the roadmap currently says:white_heavy_check_mark:
