Microsoft Teams has proven to be one of the most valuable collaboration tools in recent times. One reason for this is due to the ease of managing integrations with other apps. This convenience could be further extended via SharePoint.
In case you didn’t know already, Teams are already connected with SharePoint. Every team you create has a corresponding SharePoint Team Site as well. What this means is that all your documents are automatically available in the SharePoint library. Thereby, creating a team for an existing SharePoint site is straightforward. Ensure that the site is Private and assigned to a Microsoft Office 365 Group. On the bottom left corner, you would see the option to “Create a Team”.
But what about integrating Teams with SharePoint? There are few ways you can go about it. You can find the address of your SharePoint site by selecting the three dots (options) and clicking the “Open in SharePoint” option.
You can also publish a SharePoint page on Teams. Here, you would need to go to your Teams tab and select the + button. In the “Add a tab” window choose the SharePoint tile. In the following window you can opt for Pages that are available on the SharePoint site. You can also post to the channel about the tab you’ve just added. Click Save and you’re good to go.
Additionally, you can add a SharePoint list to Teams as well. The method follows the same steps as above. The only difference is that you would need to choose “Lists” instead of “Pages”.
Finally, is adding a SharePoint library. Navigate to the + button again. In the “Add a tab” section select the “Document Library SharePoint” tile. In the next window, you can go for either “Relevant sites” or “Use a SharePoint link”. Click next. Afterwards you can choose one of the available document libraries from the SharePoint site. Hit next, give your new tab a name and save.
