SharePoint and Teams: Folder in site visibly connected to channel

Reference ID: MC252336

MC252336 – This new Microsoft Teams release will make it easy to tell which folders within your SharePoint library have a Teams channel associated with them. Additionally, you’ll be able to see this right from within the SharePoint user interface. This new feature will roll out to Teams desktop and web.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 30686.

When this will happen

Microsoft will begin rolling this out in late May and expect to complete rollout by late June.

How this will affect your organization

This shared association between Teams channels and the corresponding SharePoint folders will help eliminate confusion across all Microsoft 365 endpoints. In addition, it will provide greater clarity for users they’ll be able to easily move from a SharePoint folder directly to the corresponding Teams channel. To maintain this association, users will not be permitted to rename and delete any folders within your SharePoint library that have an associated Teams channel.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.Additional information
