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

As of October 2021, Microsoft has implemented an update that, when renaming a Teams-channel, also updates the associated SharePoint-folder.

This helps create consistency between Microsoft teams and SharePoint, which will make it easier for users to find their files anywhere. Regardless of how they navigate through Microsoft 365.

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

For Teams-channels renamed prior to this rollout, nothing will change. When an obsolete channel is renamed after this release, the corresponding SharePoint-folder will be renamed at the same time.

Want consistency in the previously created Microsoft Teams? Then rename it so that the underlying sites are also updated.

Release date: October 2021 | Feature ID: 72211.
