Hi to all,

 

Fist of all thanks a lot for your help, i have a team for "Opportunities" with channels for "New", "Ongoing" and "Lose" ones.

 

I would like to open a new folder in channel "New" for each opportunity, how to move it to channel Ongoing or Lose when the status change?

Hi Nicola,

You can go to the SharePoint view by choosing the option, 'Open in SharePoint':

Select the folder that you want to move > choose 'move to':

Now select the destination channel name from the menu and you are done!

Moved, but now that channel is not visible in my TEAMS left rail.

 

How do you mean! Can't you see the channel at all? Which of the channels went missing? You sure it's not just hidden  under "more channels"?

Thanks for replying, Adam. Correct. I moved a channel (Test Workstreams ) in SharePoint. 

Am I wrong to assume it will "appear" in my left rail in TEAMS? There is nothing under "more". The page has refreshed. The laptop has been restarted.TEAMS missing Channel.PNG

Hi!
It doesnt work like that I’m afraid! Channels itself can’t be created by moving the corresponding folder! You must
Create a new channel in the team you want and then copy the content from the old channel into the new channel folder that was created!
Just create a folder in the underlaying SharePoint site won’t create a channel! This can only be done from teams which does some magic behind the scenes more than just the file space! A conversations space for example
