Morning,

 

We are experiencing an issue with the Viva Connection inside MS Teams where a SharePoint Team site that is linked from the Home Page contains a Period in the URL.

 

Instead of loading the page it seems to interpret the URL as a file to be downloaded.

 

The SharePoint URL looks like this:

https://BusinessName.sharepoint.com/sites/BusinessName.BusinessUnit/SitePages/Home.aspx

 

Regards
