Sharepointbabe a blog about sharepoint and office 365 static electricity definition physics

That was the reason why I am writing this blog post. To start with, the connection between the Files tab in Teams and SharePoint works like this: when you add a new Teams team and a channel, a SharePoint site collection will be added (unless of course you choose to add a team based on an existing site). They are then connected and you can see this by going to the “Files” tab in Teams. q gastrobar Let’s say you add a new Team that is called “O365Projects”. Now this will generate a site collection with the URL “https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/sites/O365projects”. electricity invented timeline On that site a folder will be added into the Documents library, and it’s called “General”:

So what happens if someone either Rename or Delete these folders? Because they are connected now. I will describe four scenarios, what the effects are if you do any of the following actions. electricity electricity lyrics An important note: while I was testing this I did not close Teams in between and sometimes it looked like renaming worked, but when I restarted Teams it updated and then it was not working, so it may look like it works in Teams and that is just because it did not refresh properly so be sure to restart Teams when you rename or delete channels!v Scenario 1: Rename a channel in Teams

I changed the name to “Trainings”. The effect was that the channel was renamed, of course, but the folder in my SharePoint documents library did not change name – it was still called “Instructions”. But.. the connection still works. If I upload documents into either Teams or SharePoint to that channel, the files are visible on both places. electricity for refrigeration heating and air conditioning 9th edition answers But of course, this could end up in confusion when you go to the SharePoint site and look for documents connected to that channel and the name is totally different. Anyway, this works, but not recommended. The natural step would be to change the name in the document library to the same, what happens then? That is in our next scenario! Scenario 2: Rename a folder connected to a channel in SharePoint

Go back into Teams, what happens there? The Files area is emtpy! And the reference on Files is still pointing to “Instructions”. ag gaston funeral home birmingham al So that will break the connection. As you can see the channel is “Trainings” but it wants to find files in a folder called “Instructions”, so if you are uncertain on what folder the channel is connected to, then you will see that in the top of the Files tab in Teams (here the yellow mark is on the “Trainings” channel which is connected to the “Instructions” folder):

And now what happens in SharePoint is that it will automatically add back a new folder in the library called “Instructions”! So SharePoint will automatically match the channels, if they do not exist in there. electricity transformer near house Now I both have my new “Trainings” and the old “Instructions” folder. And this is where it could get confusing, because now you have a channel called “Trainings”, which points to the “Instructions” folder which is empty because your files are stored in the “Trainings” folder…. : Recommended solution: Move the files out of the channel (example: move all files from “Instructions” folder) to a temporary folder in SharePoint. Then delete the channel and folder, and in Teams create a new channel with the name you want. Then move the files back from the temporary folder into that new channel’s folder. Scenario 3: Delete a channel in Teams

What if we had deleted the folder in SharePoint also, and tried to restore the channel? Then it will restore the channel, and as soon as you click on the “Files” tab it will add back that folder to the library on SharePoint BUT the folder is… EMPTY!! So your files are gone! Teams will not restore your files. I looked in the recycle bin on SharePoint and you can restore the files from there, but it gets stuck on Restoring so not sure that will work. You cannot access the files inside folders from the recycle bin, so that may not work.

Go back into SharePoint to find a new folder added called “Presentations”. So SharePoint will add a new folder automatically. gas and bloating What if we want to restore the deleted folder and files then? We did delete this by mistake! Well, that restore does not seem to work, it is stuck on “Restoring”.. So these files are probably gone! Scenario 5: Delete a channel and add a new with the same name
