Have a hierarchical Wiki with child wiki pages in channel wiki tab
Can you add a child wiki page in a tab so you can create a hierarchy of wiki pages so it is easily navigated and organised. i.e. more like a navigable website. At the moment you can only add a flat list of wiki pages in a channel Wiki tab. See Confluence by atlassian.
Thank you for your feedback! We support adding multiple pages to a single Wiki tab by choosing the “Create a new page” button on the bottom of the Table of Contents pane. This pane can be opened by tapping the menu button on the top-left of the Wiki.
We’re working to make the Table of Contents easily accessible on larger displays so that this option will be just a single tap away!
I wanted to say that the response left by Mark does not answer the request, and saw that everybody else has already done that. So I won't bother with the details. Just going to support this ticket.
This "try this instead" suggestion misses the core of the problem. We know that we can have a page with sections. What we need is a way to group pages by topic in a way that helps us navigate.
I second Jeremie's suggestion. This functionality is crucial.
Really enjoying what we see so far with Teams, and we're starting to utilize the Wiki option and can see it potentially getting very large and hard to navigate. If we had the option to add grandchild pages so that it looks more like
This would assist with making the Wiki even more friendly for end users.
Thanks for your consideration!
Mark, even when you create a new page, the tree structure is pretty flat and difficult to use. We need the ability to create a more complex tree structure with parent pages, child pages, and grandchild pages, etc. Grouping pages in folders or sections is also crucial to make the information easier to navigate. My department could use the wiki for internal documentation and SOP, but if we were to use this feature, we would have hundreds of pages. We need a better way to structure all that information. Look at this example of an advanced navigation structure (look at the left side of the page). This would be invaluable for the wiki:
Thanks for links and stuff, but there is one thing I am surprised by. When clicking a link to a document in teams, the response time is excruciatingly slow. In other words, I get a link to a page. I edit another page and include the link. Someone opens the second page and clicks on my link (which is a link to another Teams Wki page) and opening the original page takes half of "forever".
You permit sections to be created on the only Wiki. Each section already has "..." on the top right corner of the section. Why not include an option in the drop down to allow user to turn that section to a sub wiki?
Each section heading can be used as a link for TOC Wiki page. You are already kinda doing it with what you allow user to click on the top left corner widget below the "Conversations" tab.

Child pages would be a real improvement and very great!

The "Try This Instead" does not apply or fix this. Please fix this Microsoft ASAP! Confluence is cutting edge!
The solution proposed do not apply.

I agree, the solution proposed is not a workable solution when you're looking for a mediawiki.org replacement.
Hi there, this is also a very needed use case for us. At the moment, there is no chance to access all wiki pages at once to have a complete overview. That would be awesome for every employee, also especially the newbies. Or when I dont remember if I wrote down the wiki-entry in this or that channel.
Any news on this? For when do you have that on the roadmap?

Hi Mark, Yes atm you can create multiple pages in a wiki tab. What we would like is some ability to structure those multiple pages. A table of contents will certainly help but that along with the ability to link pages together is essential to give the wiki some structure, otherwise it's a massive collection of unrelated pages and navigating it is impossible.
Without linking wiki pages it's a collection of unrelated facts and opinions.
We are looking for the ability to create a simple tree structure at least.
I know the purists will argue whether a wiki should have this but in reality an organisation needs a structure to documentation.
it should be very useful!!!

agreed, its not really a wiki unless I can create multiple pages and link between them. Although I'd argue that a wiki has no notion of a page hierarchy, rather it has a page graph (i.e. any page can link to any other page).
Also, markdown please as per https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18610792-add-markdown-support-to-wiki-tab
