We are planning to roll out Microsoft Teams organization-wide and have a team created for every department.

 

Currently everyone stores documents on SharePoint or locally. Would it be a wise option to move all content stored in SharePoint folders and other places to Microsoft teams?

 

We tried to play around to see how it would work and created document library on SharePoint, but it doesn’t appear in Teams. We also created a folder in SharePoint which is meant to be a channel in Teams- and it doesn’t show in channels list of Teams either. Looks like there is no sync between SharePoint and Teams.

 

We have just started using Teams and looks like there are a lot of things that don’t work as we would expect. Did anyone have experience with Teams- SharePoint migration ?

Also we are concerned in case the data gets deleted, what would be best backup and recovery solutions?

Hi!

When you create a Team , a team site in SharePoint will be created. When you create channels in Teams that will create a folder in that team site library. You can’t do this from SP and have it show up in Teams as a channel. Just from teams.

You can move files from other sites or if it’s modern team sites you can put a team on top of them. Also you can add SharePoint libraries to teams as a Library tab or by cloud storage within the files tab

@adam deltinger Hi you mentioned adding from cloud storage on the files tab in Teams. I have added a Document Libaries Tab and from Files added Document Libraries there but is it possible to add an actual file from another SharePoint site within the same organization? If I upload, it copies the file to the SharePoint for that Team which is essentially duplicating the file.  It would also mean that any changes made from Teams wouldn't sync with the original file on the main SharePoint document libary
