A customer of ours is using Teams heavily, but what they have found is that when moving folders in SharePoint between Teams they do not show up in the new location in the Teams application. The only way to get them to show up in the Teams application is to rename the folder in SharePoint, and then it appears in the Teams Application. Has anyone else had this issue?

Do you mean that they move folders within the channelfolders in sharepoint?

@adam deltinger That is correct, as you cannot move folders in Teams you have to move them in share point.

Hi! I don’t get this issue! I copy a folder from a general folder in SP to another general folder in another team site! It shows up in that files tab in Teams directly

@adam deltinger Does it show up instantly?

Yeah, a Refresh and they were there

You need to check and make sure that someone didn't rename the channel. What might be happening you are using SharePoint to move the folder, to a folder with the same name, but that folder might not be the actual folder the channel is using. Since they don't match when renaming (A bug being worked on). Since you renamed the folder maybe you replaced the folder name with what it was attached too? I dunno I would start there, but it should work as it's a direct link to the folder on SharePoint and it shouldn't matter which tool you use to add / move files.

Guys, we were using SLACK for more than 2 year and we made the decision to shift to TEAM. Its a great tool BUT the DOCUMENT LIBRARY issue is KILLING US. 

 

We need to change several team channels name and it NEVER updates the file folder with new name. If we open it in Sharepoint and rename it gets BROKEN and becomes inaccessible. We need to get this FIXED ASAP
