Created a few teams on Fri 19 July.  Initially got the message around "we're setting up your files" as usual which normally takes a few minutes.   Nothing changed until today and now getting message saying

"We can't get your files. We're working on getting them back."

 

What's going on here?  Assume some link to sharepoint/onedrive isn't working but not sure why

 

Separate issue that each time you create a Team it also adds it as a workspace in Power BI (even if one already exists).   As I now have some teams and workspaces named the same thing could that be causing issues?   Our aim is just to use teams as much as possible as a single resource to share conversation and files etc but seems thwarted by every attempt.  thanks

Can anyone access files?
Tried to remove from team and add back?

With power BI, every workspace creates a Office 365 group which also team does! Use the workspace created for the team och create a team on that group of your previous workspace

@adam deltinger Nobody on the team can see any files - same error around " we can't get your files " per the screenshot attached.

 

I'm the owner so can't remove myself from the team/channel.    

I'm reluctant to delete the team and try again as will lose any chat.    Where does the default 'files' tab point to - is there any way I can create a folder in onedrive/sharepoint that it will then see and start working?

What happens if you click “open in sharepoint”?

@adam deltinger click from where?  can't see that option in teams (or in power bi workspace)

@adam deltinger 

also in sharepoint itself I can't even access that i'm the owner of that I created in Teams, so it's not like i can even view the files within sharepoint. (nobody else can either) - see screenshot

Go to files, click the ... up at the channel name!

@adam deltinger  still not sure? (see attached), sorry!

thanks for the help

Click the same three dots but next to the channel name up in the top middle of the page

@matthewharrop At the top of the window next to General. Click on the 3 dots ... will give you option to "Open in SharePoint"

@v803742 thanks - but we just get this for all teams created in the last few days

(see attached)

If so, I’d create a ticket with Microsoft!

Matthew,
Were experiencing the same thing. Please keep us posted. We too created a ticket with MS
Highlighted
are there any updates to this? Could it be a security certificate issue?

We're having the same issue. Are there any updates on this?

@invalidbit Could you find a solution for this in the meantime?

@matthewharrop We are seeing the same behavior for every new Team we create. It seems that new Teams cannot find the backend SharePoint site collection. One trick I was told of was to:

  1. Go to the Teams site in SharePoint
  2. Click on the Team Site name at the top
  3. A dialog will be displayed with the connected apps at the bottom
  4. Click on Teams is the list of apps
  5. Select to open in the Teams app.
  6. This "establishes" the link between the MS Team and the SharePoint site backend

This has worked for me but unfortunately not every time. Anyone else find a better solution?

@TonyBryant Could you explain more please? Where should I go to SharePoint site in first?
