Hello:

 

I want to add a single folder from our our teams sharepoint to a team. When i try to do that it is selectign the whole sharepoint instead of just that folder. Ex: Our share point has different folders for different projects,  I have created a team for a seperate project. I want to add only that folder to that team. Is it possible ? Any help is apprecaited.

When you go to your SharePoint site, open the folder that you want to target, and copy the URL but exclude the "/Forms/AllItems.aspx" part. For example if the URL is https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/DemoGroup/Shared%20Documents/SubFolder/Forms/AllItems.aspx then the URL you want is https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/DemoGroup/Shared%20Documents/SubFolder/

In Teams, when you add the SharePoint, use the option for "Use a SharePoint link." Paste your URL there and give it a user-friendly name for the Teams tab.

No, I am not having success doing this. I tried folder names too, but it is still pulling up the whole share point.

I'm having the same issue.  The proposed fix didn't work for me either.  It just linked back to the top level.

Highlighted

I am still having issues with this. It will only link to the base Documents folder and not a subfolder underneath.

 

Very frustrating. Trying to have subfolders in sharepoint for different channels in teams for a group.

Highlighted

Are you doing it like this selecting a library in sharepoint?

and what do you exactly mean do you have a screenshot?

 

Highlighted
No solutions that have been suggested work. It always links back to the root of the document library, never the subfolder.
Highlighted

Is this a tenant wide issue or just on your pc?

Highlighted

Within a Teams team, when you add a Tab using the SharePoint Tab, the wizard/dialog box will always resolve the SharePoint Site name and then list any available document libraries within that site, regardless of the URL you use. You can only display document libraries within the SharePoint tab, not folders.

 

If you use the Website tab, you can use a folder-specific URL, and the folder will display, along with the complete SharePoint page. Within that tab, the user may have to re-authenticate to the SharePoint site.  If you are willing to pay the tax of re-authentication and seeing the entire SharePoint page instead of only a list of files, you might find this to be a partial work around for what I think you are asking.

 

Have a great week.

Yes that is exactly where I performing it. I need to log into SP first to create a new library which would then allow me to link to that directory. The situation would be creating a channel for each project a team would be working on. If I used the standard files tab within Teams for a channel, that defaults to creating a directory on the SP site for that team. I would much rather have the channel files be in a projects folder/library on the team SP site. I hope that makes sense. Otherwise if a SP site is used for other folders it gets messy very quickly.
Highlighted
You can create a new tab with Sharepoint, provided you have created a new library on SP pointed to the subfolder. You then have a files tab and another tab. Not ideal, but achievable.
Highlighted

We are seeing the same across our whole tenant and it is frustrating users. They expect to be able to link to the folder and are confused it keeps coming back the root Library.

Do we know if this is being investigated?

Highlighted

Hi,

 

Same for our organization.

Can you please fix it, or provide a workaround?

 

Thanks,

Eric.

Hi,

 

If I try to add a SharePoint website link I get an error:

If your site isn't loading correctly, click here

 

And this is it. No Sharepoint website. What do I do wrong?

Same issue here.

This is quite frustrating, we've just created a Team site to collaborate with an external partner and a lot of the behaviour is going to confuse their employees. Needing an O365 or MS account is frustrating enough the in-ability to select a specific folder to share is confusing - for example we want to share our marketing folder with this agency but adding in our main file server sharepoint site will only allow us to add the sites documents as a whole which is not desirable.

Sorry for the late reply. Saddened to still see this as an issue 6 months later. This affects all tenants everywhere on all devices.
Highlighted
Here’s how I got around this - under the general channel for a departments Team, I put the SharePoint site documents folder for that department.
So whenever they have to upload something, they just navigate to the general channel and find the folder they need in there.
Highlighted

Came across this thread as I'm also experiencing the same issue. This is not really a workaround, as it means that users will still have to navigate and see all folders that may be irrelevant to them.

 

We want to use Teams as a platform for project communication and file sharing with clients - we would create a new folder within our document library for each project and want the SharePoint tab in each channel to point only to a specific project folder, rather than the root directory. Clients could easily be confused if they see many old project folders in the channel for a current project.

 

Creating a new document library or site for each project is not feasible or manageable, and leaves our files scattered all over the place.

 

Linking to the SharePoint folder as a 'Website' item works, but it'd be much nicer if this could be integrated natively as part of the 'SharePoint' item.

Highlighted

Same here, very surprised this isn't fixed after such a long time.  

 

My case is having a single Projects site, where a project is held in a sub folder. Having the integration to teams is great, but people having to navigate to the project each time is not good.  Another case is having a particular sub folder which is the current phase of the project, and having that as a tab specifically would also be quite useful.
