Name in "Files" tab isn't the same as Channel's name.

Hi!

 

As you can see in this screenshot, the name of the channel in my "Files" tab is "Notes, théorie", which is the old name I gave to my "— Notes de cours" channel:

Is there a way to change that, and why didn't it automatically change?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Chris_Calli 

 

When you create a Channel, the files tab creates a SharePoint repository for that channel. Updating the name within Teams does not update SharePoint. Within the files tab, click the globe in the top right corner and this will take you to the SharePoint document library where you can update the settings.

 

It may take some time to reflect the change in Teams.

 

Hope that helps!
