How to rename teams-channel and its SharePoint-folder name at the same time

How to rename teams-channel and its SharePoint-folder name at the same time

This month, when a Teams channel is renamed, the corresponding folder will also be renamed. SharePoint-folder will also be renamed. This helps create consistency between Microsoft teams and SharePoint, making it easier for users to find their files wherever they are.

This new feature is available for all standard and private channels.

For Teams-channels that have been renamed before this roll-out, nothing changes. When an obsolete channel is renamed after this release, the associated SharePoint folder is renamed at the same time.

So, if you want consistency in the old teams, then change the name again!

Release date: October 2021.

Feature ID: 72211 .
