Hi,

 

I think this is a bug, so not sure if this is the right place to post it.

 

Anyway, we have a team, with a files library, I opened the file library in SharePoint, went to the libraries settings, then under advanced, turned off "Make New Folder" command available?

 

This works a treat as normal in SharePoint, but in Teams, our users are still able to create folders.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks 

Warren

@Warren Patterson  Well, bug or not, it's known that Teams and Sharepoint don't really work that welll together right now regarding folder correlations, naming and all that! There's a new files experience coming where basically the SharePoint library will be visible in the files tab in teams! This will probably honour this setting then hopefully!

@adam deltinger Yeah, was hoping someone would say that isnt so and its easily sorted by xyz :)

 

This new experience I believe will also include document properties / metadata editing *finger crossed*

Yes, you get views, sync button etc also! Waited way to long for this already but hopefully soon

Not a bug in my opinion...just a by design thing and I see quite logical that even if you disable folder creation in the Document Library, this is not going to take any effect in Teams since Channels creation should work as expected: when you create a Channel a folder is added to the document library linked to the Team

@Juan Carlos González Martín Sure, I will take that its not a bug, but it certainly is bad design.  Lets see what the new list experience brings, hoping for great things.
