The root storage library in teams is fixed to the associated Group.

Can it be changed so that new documents are by default associated to another Library?

Locking every file created into the default 'shared documents' library is a tedious constraint. Shame.

 

Another question.

 

Can the creation of Channels (Folders) be restricted at user level?  

 

Yes.

 

Manage Team, Settings, Member Permissions.

A very limited feature as people in a Team are either Members or Owners.

 

Then, through member permissions, either all members can create a Channel or none can.  

Shame, best would be a granular arrangement where some could, some couldn't. 

 

Same with apps, tabs, connectors or messages. All or nothing. 

And there's no back door via Group site settings and permissions.

 

Maybe Sharepoint could be invented and granular permissions setup....

 

 

Why wouldn't you make the users you want to create groups Owners, and the one's you don't Members ? We use this on a group of 2,300 member without issue.

Channel creation is the issue.
I bet you dont have 2,300 members in one Team/Group who can all create Channels?
If you have then it would be a mad, hardly used Team.

No, but as I described above I can prevent my members from creating channels, while still allowing owners to create channels. I also limit so only owners can post in General and so notify everyone. We have added about 30 people as owners, so they can do these actions.

Thanks for sharing. Taking that setup in isolation is probably not a good way for me to understand the experience you've gained exploiting teams. Thanks for the heads up.
