We are trying to open the Microsoft teams apps with our SharePoint point.
 
But when we try to open it we keep getting an error "You'll need a new app to open this about link"
 
We just installed it yesterday and today and experiencing the same thing. Our share point 365 website is the one experiencing the issue of clicking the URL link and getting "You'll need a new app to open this about link”
 
I have attached a screen shot image to this message.
 
Does anyone have an idea about this issue.

Thanks for raising. I can't replicate it, but just want to confirm

 

  • This is in the Teams Desktop Client
  • This is using a website tab
  • The URL is the Site Content URL in the SharePoint Site
  • The Site has several sub sites

The issue occurs because you click a link for the subsite

 

I have seen the issue when adding a new column in the Lists App in Teams, but not here. This has never been resolved. I would recommend opening a bug here, using BUG | in the title

 

Microsoft Teams · Community

 

I would also raise a ticket referencing the bug with screenshots. 

 

Hope that answers your question

 

Best, Chris
