Hello, I'm trying to spin up Teams buy have come across a hiccup.  Teams automatically is creating a folder with the channel name in the Sharepoint site main directory of our group.  I do not want it to do this.  I would like it create these folders and save the files in a specific directory.  How can I do this instead?

@K5_DawnB That is how Teams is constructed to do it. For each channel you create it will create a folder. You can delete the folder but Teams will create a new folder when someone access the files tab or upload a file to the channel.

@Linus Cansby  thanks for the reply!  That is a total bummer - might be a dealbreaker for me to be able to use it.  It will create a huge mess of our shared library.
