Fixing File and Folder Locations in Microsoft Teams - HLS Show Me How
Published Nov 06 2018 07:09 AM 37.1K Views

Yesterday in a meeting with a customer an issue was brought forward they were looking for help with. It seems that in a number of cases SharePoint power users had gone “under the hood” in Microsoft Teams and created their own folders and added files. Since these folders/files were not located under any existing folders generated at Channel creation time they did not show up and appeared to be orphaned. Luckily there was a quick fix I was able to show them. Furthermore, they saw the value in using the “fix” in other areas where they wanted to move, of copy files/folders from other SharePoint Sites and OneDrive to Microsoft Teams Channels.

In this HLS Show Me How I demonstrate how to easily re-parent files and folders that may have been created directly in the underlying SharePoint Document Library within Microsoft Teams to ensure proper visibility as well as relocate them from other SharePoint sites.
