migrating fileserver to Teams :)  

1) First, create all the (department) Teams sites from/in the Teams desktop Client - and in the underlying SP site and the General channel is created by design.  
2) With SPMT -> migrate the various 'Folders and Files' to the Doc library. 

 

However - Teams don't "recognize" that various folders are now in the Doc library, so no Channels are (auto) created in Teams

Afterward trying to create an HR folder - Teams reports that it can't create the channel ?? 

 

Have others experienced this or?

Yes, This is correct! Creating a channel from Teams, creates the folder in SP! But creating a folder in SharePoint won't create a channel!!

Best practice right  now is to create channels to also create the folders ( if you want them as channels)

Then migrate the files to the folders in SP

Hi Adam

I was thinking; what about creating an additionel/seperate doc library for the migrated files - and create a tab in the departement Teams - that way the department/owners/members won’t experience any issues creating channels ?

Yes, you can so this many ways! Either you copy files to the channel folders, or you create separate libraries that you can pin as a tab in preferred channels or add as a cloud storage in the files tab!!
