I am having an issue adding an existing list to Lists in Teams. I can add all other lists from this group/site to the desired Teams channel, except this one. I am getting an error: "That link did not work because you either do not have access or it is unsupported."
The channel is private and the list is not hosted on the sub-site for the private channel; rather its hosted on the main site. However, I was able to add other Lists from other sites to this private channel with no issue.
I have verified that the permissions are standard; same as all the other lists. I am an owner with Full Control. I can access and edit the list through SharePoint no problem. Any ideas as to why this may be happening?

We have the exact same issues:

We have the same issues, but it is every sharepoint site. Hopefully MS fixes soon so you can use existing from non-group based SP sites and not just ones created from the app or group based.

Same problem here with some lists. I have no idea what causes the list to be unsupported.

I have the same problem. Only 3 of the 5 lists in my Team site are visible in the "Add an existing list" dialog. If I try to add either of the other two using a SharePoint link, I get this error. I was able to add a list from my organization's SharePoint site, but not a list that exists within my own Team site.

I noticed that the two lists I couldn't add to Teams were the two lists that I created by directly exporting from Access to SharePoint. As a test, I tried exporting one of them from Access to Excel, then adding a new list to SharePoint based on the Excel file. That list could indeed be added to a Teams tab in SharePoint. That's a positive step and a clue, but I would much, much rather be able to add the existing list to Teams instead of having to re-create my formatting and views from scratch with a new list from Excel.
There's no "created by" flag on the list itself that I can see, only on records in the list. I can't find anything in the list settings that would make it work.

Same here... interestingly, I had added it to a previous Team, same process, worked fine, is still fine, but i cannot add it to this one ...and I created the Team.
...very frustrating...and no answer here yet :(

If your URL in the address bar is like
at the end, it should work whether you include that ending view information or not.
I suspect that @CM-Ontario's problem was that they were on a page with the list in a web part. If you are viewing a page with the list in a web part and you see a link named "See all" at the upper right corner, that will be the link to your list.

That rings a bell. We created the SharePoint list by exporting from an Excel table. I am sure this is a similar problem, because if I create a new SharePoint list from scratch it is available in Teams Lists. I have found the workaround is to simply use the Website tab and paste in the list URL there. This seems to do exactly the same thing.
Thank you for your reply, Natalie

Does anyone know what causes this error? Are there certain columns or column type created by the Excel/Access export that cause the error (and that I could delete or reamke instead of remaking the full list?)
Or any update from Microsoft on whether they're trying to fix this?
