We are trying to use the WEBSITE APP in Microsoft Teams with our SharePoint Site. It shows up, but when we hit the URL LINK it is telling us "You'll need a new app to open this about link". 

 

We just installed it yesterday and today and experiencing the same thing.  Our sharepoint 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”

 

Please does anyone have any idea about this issue. 

 

I have attached a screenshot of the error to this message

Hi! Haven’t tried this particular scenario but I know there are limitations to the website tab regarding access links etc! I’d suggest open the page via browser from Teams it via the web icon.
I don’t think you can access the settings if you add it via the SharePoint tab but you can try that
The website Tab has always had some issues with SharePoint things, and it really restricts it from admin type area's or system type pages and the site content page is one of them, so linking direct to it as the files are sites and probably to an aspx page it's probably messing it up.

Not to go off topic, but best practice for SharePoint Online it is recommended to not use Subsites as Microsoft is moving away from that tech and it's only there because old SharePoint use. New practice is to use New Site collections for all your sites and utilize Hub sites if you want to group sites together. You can use other web parts or the Quick Launch / Hub navigation along the top to provide navigation to other sites instead of that system page.
