Microsoft Teams – Sync Channel Names With SharePoint Folders

Microsoft will be releasing a new feature to update the channel rename experience in Teams to simultaneously rename the corresponding folder in SharePoint sites whenever a channel in Teams is renamed.  This update will help eliminate some of the difficulty and confusion that is sometime encountered when a channel in Teams is renamed, and the corresponding folder's naming convention is not updated accordingly in SharePoint.

  • For Standard channels – The corresponding folder in SharePoint will be renamed.
  • For Private channels – For Private channels, the corresponding folder in SharePoint will be renamed.
  • For legacy Teams channels that were renamed prior to this rollout – There will be no change in experience. When a legacy channel is renamed after this release, it will simultaneously rename the corresponding SharePoint folder.
  • Upon renaming a channel, the new folder name will only reflect the same name in the corresponding OneDrive sync client when the whole document library has been synced. When only the channel folder is synced, the new name will not be reflected in the OneDrive sync client.
This feature will rollout on Teams desktop and web beginning in late February 2022.
