Rename of Team Channel doesn't rename associated Sharepoint files Folder
When renaming a Team Channel, the associated Sharepoint folder continues with it's previous name. This could lead to confusion.
We have raised the priority of this work item, and it is currently being worked on. We don’t have any dates to share at this point, but will update when we have new status. Thank you!
I'd add that even by renaming directly at Sharepoint, it created another folder and the previous stays empty. Creates some confusion indeed.
Rename of Team Channel should also rename associated SharePoint files Folder. would be great if it figured out soon!
Glad I'm not the only one experiencing this issue! Hopefully, Microsoft will fix this eventually...
need this so seriously
Wow, this issue was reported on November 03, 2016 and more than three and a half years later, nothing is done. Could it be that Microsoft does not care about the accumulating Information Management nightmare this is forming for a lot of customers, meanwhile giving priority to letting users buy themselves licenses by default in an Enterprise environment and that sort of ****... Something is seriously wrong in Redmond, please wake up!
This is very confusing and is unacceptable. Microsoft need to fix this issue ASAP as it is causing a lot of pain for our business. What is the ETA for the fix please?

This is a bug and has been all along. Please fix ASAP.

Experienced the same issue, when changing folder names, Teams does not sync with SharePoint and vice verse.
Please fix - what a frustrating issue!
Any update on this Mircosoft?
It is really annoying and creates a mess in the share point folder.
Always creating a new channel when the name chagnes and copy all files does not do it. Messges get lost and it is just a sensless administrative work.
Oh come on, Microsoft, get your act together! This is such a basic feature - seems really surprising this is not sorted yet. When syncing channels to OneDrive to ensure quick access to documents locally, I have both versions of the channel name appearing which creates great confusion. Please fix!
We can't rename the folder, that a channel is connected to, after a channel's been renamed. It just disconnects the two. The folder always has to keep the original name of the channel.
We can't change the connection between a folder to a specific SharePoint folder.
a) changes the name of a channel, or
b) changes the name of a folder on SharePoint that is connected to a Teams channel
it just causes a mess.
Please, after 3 years, get this feature ready.

We have some issues as we use teams for functional projects. As a project evolves through the lifecyle of how we set them up, channels wise. They change to keep company standard. This makes the Sharepoint backend very difficult to be agile.

This is causing SO much confusion. We changed a channel name to make it more descriptive but the folder in SharePoint did not change. So now there is the old folder (with name of old channel) and we had to create a new folder that matched the channel name. We tried to delete the folder that had the wrong name, but when we navigated back to the Channel/files it said these files are no longer available. This is a major bug. Any chance this will be fixed soon?
Please give us a status update or roadmap!
Hi all, this bug was shared 4 years ago and it seems really strange that has not been solved yet. Is there any roadmap for the remediation actions? thanks

Just spent 15 minutes trying to figure out this issue and finally stumbled across this discussion. Please fix now! I'm trying to get my colleagues to use Microsoft Teams but there are so many weird glitches and non-intuitive non-user friendly issues like this one.
Still no, eh? Wow.
...one word, UNBELIEVABLE!!
Yes, I have spent that past couple of days trying to find a fix. Thank you Alex for posting the update!
