Make rename in Teams reflect name changes in Sharepoint?
When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.
Thanks for flagging this one — we are working jointly with MS Teams on a solution for keeping consistency when you rename a channel in Teams. Don’t have an ETA to share yet.
2 months since the latest response to this bug (from the Teams and SharePoint teams). Any further update on ETA, Progress, Status?
My team is running into issues with this as well (renaming of folders in Teams not linking up with Sharepoint). It has created some confusion. Hope to see a solve soon! Thanks.
It's so confusing do not change the SharePoint Name when the users changer Canal name. I have to add our users to adopt Teams but they said it will be difficult because this probleme who is confusing.
It seems to be a very long time that problem is list here, what is the problem?? Are you working on this problem?

Dear the team,
I think it is quite disappointing for me who is a big fan of Microsoft.
It has been raised more than 2 years ago, and it is clearly a bug, not the improvement.
I’m in charge of transformation of our corporate and trying to adopt Teams a sole communication tool, but the effort of Microsoft seems to be slow to win this game.
Please update ETA of this critical issue to all lovers of your product, as soon as possible.
Why did it take nearly a year and a half for a response from Microsoft on this? Seems to be an important issue.

Really frustrating issue!
When a Team / Channel is renamed, the associated team / folder in SharePoint (and vice versa) should be renamed accordingly.
Maybe Microsoft hasn't responded because they're confused by the description, while everyone else knows what the original person intended by this suggestion.
If Microsoft is reading this feedback, the issue has to do with renaming a "Channel" in teams, which results in the corresponding SharePoint folder not being renamed. If you rename the folder in SharePoint to correspond to the updated channel name, when you click on the Open in SharePoint link, the link does not get updated and it says it cannot be found.
Can someone from Microsoft provide an update here?
This needs to be fixed. It is really confusing. When a Team / Channel is renamed, the associated team / folder in SharePoint (and vice versa) should be renamed accordingly.

this has caused all kinds of chaos with some of our more passionate "power users"

Please, Please, Please resolve this issue Microsoft. Why not allow Admin change folder connected to the Files tab and/or change URL and/or allow SharePoint Document Library folder rename to "stick." I have easily confused audience preparing to use Microsoft Teams for the very first time - I want to make it seamless and easy to understand. Thank you!

It will be great if the team owner can select which folder the channel files are linked to. This will be a simlpe fix to the problem so many organizations face now.
I spent 3 days with Microsoft Support telling me this was 'by design'. This issue is preventing us rolling out Teams.

Really need this ASAP!
It is really messy when someone creates a team or channel then realizes it needs a new name. Seeing a different Team name than the folder name for that Team is VERY confusing for users. We need to have it so when a Team is renamed the associated folder in SP gets renamed and visa versa.
Please fix this. A rename needs to propagate. You will make it harder to transition new users. It is very discouraging for folks that are uncomfortable with change to not understand why the folder they think they are putting files in is not the actual location.

I have recently migrated from the old Sharepoint format to the online 365 version. We share and collaboration frequently with external partners, clients and subject matter experts. The UI functionality for renaming a Channel is complete inefficient and also makes us look dysfunctional as a strategic partner. It would really help to get this fixed.
I work with TEAMS and our team name change depending on the project we're working on. However, there are documents that we use for all the projects (scheduling, SOP, etc.) and it would help greatly if we can address this problem. Now what I need to do it's to transfer all these documents and create a new team...it really is not efficient.
