We are relatively new to teams and have created a very simple team.  We added a page and a list to the corresponding team SharePoint site. 

What I would like to do is to add a SharePoint tab to display the list that we created in SP directly in the Teams tool.  When I try to add the tab and select SharePoint, the form displays "blank" and there is nothing that I can add?

I was able to add a list using by adding a website but had authentication challenges and it seemed to be more complex than what I was hoping to do.

If anyone has suggestions please let me know.

Thanks in advance

Have seen this before! Try the web client ( teams.microsoft.com) and try do it from there, also try do a full logiskt / login in the desktop client

Could be a caching issue...but I agree that you should try also the Web Client
Hi Adam, Thanks for your suggestions. I tried it in the web client with the same result. Blank screen. I'm not sure what you mean or how to do a full logiskt / login in the desktop client? I was wondering if it could be some strange permission problem? Just not sure where to look. If you have any other thoughts please let me know. Doug
Never mind the logout! The same result in The web client points to other fault! You said you got errors when trying to add via the website tab? Usually I find this the best way of showing sharepoint as a tab! Can you access the sites / lists from within sharepoint without issue?
I was able to add the SharePoint list as a "web page". The errors I get are just something to do with our corporate authentication (SSO) and it's not so much of an error as a hassle! It all worked in the end I just can't figure out why I am not able to add the list directly! Seems like it should be so easy. Thanks again for your suggestions and feedback. I'll just use the "workaround" for now...
That's a different issue: Do you have ADFS deployed? If so, that might be the root cause of the problem...but it's strange you also have the same problem in the web client because when you are there, you have already bypassed your ADFS....with the desktop client I can understand there could be a potential issue here, but not with the web one
I’ve actually had this issue a couple of times, and if I remember correctly this applied to the web version as well ! It started to work after some time each time!
Although I find the sharepoint tab overall unreliable, hence I use the website tab
