When you create a channel in teams and start to send files to each other in the channel, there should be a folder created in sharepoint to access the folder. However, i realised that some channels have that automatically created with the same channel name, but some not.

Why is this so? How do we create that then?

Not sure If I understand you, but when you create a Channel, a folder is created in the underlying site document library

@Peiru Teo I am seeing this same behavior.  Causes a ton of problems for us if we use Teams Powershell to create Teams.  The folders aren't created in SharePoint automatically and people start to create folders using OneDrive for Business sync client.  Major problem....

@Juan Carlos González Martín when is that folder created? i think it is not automatically, semi-automatically maybe, but one has to go to the channels file tab to initialize the creation of the related sharepoint folder. Not true?

You do not have to go to the file tab first - the folder in SharePoint is created at the same time as the channel.

@Rob Ellisthat is not and never was the case since i am working with Teams. 

 

just create a Team this afternoon, and see how it Looks like:

teams.PNG

even the last upated users are different... General Tab is last update, by the User who created the Team (using PowerShell). 96_Ext. Zugriff All is last update by the user who went into the files tab for that channel in Teams.
I tested today - creating a new channel in the Teams UI - did not click on the files tab for the new channel - browsed to the SharePoint library - found a folder with the same name as the new channel.

Your experience may vary if you are creating a Team or channel using PowerShell, or perhaps creating a Team based on an existing Team (I have not tested those scenarios).
I just tested creating a Team based on an existing Team - only the 'General' folder is created automatically in SharePoint in this scenario.

The folders for any other channels are only created when a user clicks the Files tab for that channel.

And I just created a completley new Team... same behavior for me. Folders in sharepoints appears after first interaction from user… that is sad if you wanna automate some Things...

 

however, would you know if ther is a Workaround to fix that… eg. creating Folders with PowerShell first and afters creating a channel with the same Name... at least from UI that Workaround works and lignes up Folders and channels.test-new-team.png

I would think if you make sure the folder names contain only valid channel name characters, then yes, that should work.
I’m just create a flow with sharepoint creating a dummyfile in the correct path! The folders will appear then! Then delete the dummyfile
Hi Adam, can you explain that in more details please? Did you create a Team with Flow or Sharepoint with Flow? I just didn't get it. And how do you do that... are you using Powershell Runbooks on Azure for that? Or Graph API in Flow? I am just not sure what you did... however, if that is an option to put a dummy file inside, I will for sure consider it.

I'm having the same issue@Rob Ellis, seems to be an error in Teams.

In an existing private Team we created a new channel through the UI, a private channel in this case (subset of users), though something went wrong and the folder was not created automatically. I'm here looking for a workaround. Manually creating a folder with the same name in the same location does not fix the problem.

Hey @Danny_Johnson ,

 

The scenario you explained should be different, when you create a private channel it is not created in the same document library, rather a whole new site collection is provisioned for it. The site collection so created using private channels as per MS documentation are not visible in sharepoint admin center, but i think MS is changing things around that, I am able to see the dedicated site collection corresponding to private channel in my admin center.

Good to know @harveer singh , thanks!

Might still be an issue there somewhere, as the second attempt (with a new name, no spaces) worked fine.

@Rob Ellissorry for being inprecise... i am talking private channel, not standard. you are right for standard channel, the sharepoint site is already there and a new folder is created. the issue is see is with private channels, where nothing happens if you create th channel eg. via graphapi as longs as a user does not go into the file tab and "initializes" the creation of the corresponding sharepoint site that way.

@Rob Ellis unfortunatelly it is not true as of today. If Private Channel created via Powershell, graph it will create channel but if you go to the location of SharePoint site:

HTTPs://root/sites/[parent team channel name]-[Private channel name without space] you will get 404 file not found. Unless someone would manually click "Files" tab in teams when SP site will be available in 1-2 min or almost instantly. 

I have been looking for a workaround myself :(

@adam deltinger  does same works with SP site of private channel?

if you are using Hub site somewhere when channels sp sites most likely will be visible.
