I know I can add a SharePoint site to the MS Teams channel. Is there a way to also add a sharepoint list?

 

Thank you,

I can't get it working.  I have the option of picking "Sharepoint" as a new tab, and get the choice of Pages or Lists, and when I select Lists, there are none showing, even though there is a list, with items, that I previously created directly on the Sharepoint site.  What am I missing?

You need to go to the SharePoint list you want, copy the URL, come back to Teams and choose the web option. Copy the URL in there - voila.

@Chris O'Brien  Unfortunately, the web app isn't exposed in our environment.

Using the Sharepoint app, I can link to the home page of the site, which contains the link to the list, so that's an acceptable work-around for the time being.

It's annoying that the Sharepoint app appears to have lists capability, that can't link to your lists.

Thanks.
