Having an issue with Microsoft teams. 

 

When using the '/files' command in the search bar, only some files are being picked up. I have noticed that its files inside sub folders which are inside a channel are not found through /files. I know the files are definitely there in the channel, and they appear in the files icon on the left hand side. 

 

Hoping someone can help me with this? Or if you have encountered the same issue. 

 

Thanks!

Hi @katerina1960

Per this article

https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/use-commands-in-teams-88f61508-284d-417f-a53d-9e082164050b

/files picks up recent files not all files.

Can you test and confirm this by opening several files? If it is not behaving that way then you would need to raise a ticket with support as it may be a bug.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
