SharePoint Wiki Link
We have a Wiki in SharePoint. We don't need a separate wiki in Teams, just let us display our existing wiki pages, which have corresponding teams channels, in the channels themselves.
It is recommended that you try adding the other SP pages as tabs within Teams.
If you feel this doesn’t meet your needs, please leave comments summarizing your usage scenario and why it doesn’t work.
Up-votes and all feedback is shared with the feature team on an ongoing basis.
We much preferred when teams put a default OneNote. The Wiki is a waste of time. It doesn't integrate with anything. Please make that tab optional or remove it.

Absolutely agree with CE below... it is not sufficient to have Team Wiki pages as a list of MHT files and you should be able to 'share' the wiki on SharePoint directly to Teams where that Team is associated with a SharePoint site...
Hi - I hope you see this. Seems like this has been closed for a year.
Teams Wiki is really good because it allows people to comment on things and it shows up in the team channel. It can spark conversation. The Sharepoint wiki does no such thing.
I'm fine if you keep them separate but at least allow web access to the wiki. Why is it ONLY available in the teams app/webapp? Just allow us to display the same thing as a page in a team Sharepoint too - its all HTML. Teams is an electron app anyway. Theres nothing fancy here.
Using OneNote in Teams is just like the Wiki, except miles better.
Less restrictive formatting
You can actually copy and paste it to a word document, or send the file to someone.
Just use OneNote instead.
*The only thing that Wiki does better within Teams is that any links to files you insert go directly to the file. With OneNote, it takes you to the web first then prompts you to open the desktop app. You also can't "mention" people, but I haven't found an instance where that capability is really necessary.
Definitely need to resolve this - the whole collaboration idea is to be able to share content not have it even further isolated and dispersed throughout an organisation, Building a team Wiki is great we use it and it works for us but when that information really becomes valuable is when we can publish it to the wider audience WITHOUT having to compromise the private group we have setup.
You need to provide a way for us to share the data to a wider audience in Sharepoint.

I thought SP Pages were possibly the way to achieve this but they are read only, which means logging into SP to create/edit content. The Teams Wiki, is a great place to throw a document together and collaborate. But it would also be good to be able to view/edit within SP.
So either permissions based read/write to a sharepoint page/wiki (if you have access) otherwise fallback to the Teams Wiki. Or Teams Wiki is a content area in SP with same functionality
Need ability to add current WIKI into a tab
@Warren, is there any hope that one day we can merge two wikis? Someone created a ton of great content in one wiki, but it really belongs in another. There isn't an easy way to merge these pages over like you can in OneNote (drag n' drop or 'copy to' or 'move to')
If wiki actually copy pasted images this wouldn't be as bad, but it will require a lot of rework to copy paste all this into the correct wiki.
The Teams Wiki is bad.
Like really really bad.
Just a short example - you can't export pages, nor import one.
To make it even worse, if you wish just to copy paste that has to be *per section*! That means you actually see a page, press ctrl+A, and only one section is marked!
Think about the following scenario, I've created meeting notes on Wiki (since it is a default meeting notes on teams). Wanted to send it to all meeting participants via email? Forget about it - easier just to write it again....
I need to share my SharePoint Wiki Corporate in Team, to show, edit, and create... is possible?
Hi MS Team,
I agree with the below there are 3 features that would need to improve not covered in Warren's answer:
- Navigation, the index and search directly integrated
- Directly edit the wiki from teams
- Merge multiple Wikis on a channel or viceversa (Sharepoint has multiple Wikis). So for example, one channel might be interested only in Wiki 1, but the second channel is interested in Wiki 1 and 2. However, all Wikis for the Org, should be on the Sharepoint
Could MS look into this?
Both of these are applicable to the Web, Mobile or Desktop App
Hi MS Team :)
I am liking the Wiki so far, very useful for my org. What I have found most powerful is the link with MS Teams and how easy it is to add things to the Wiki as they come up in conversation.
My question is:
Is there a way of linking Wikis? I specifically would like to link a Wiki from Teams to SharePoint or even from one Team to another?
Yes it should be one wiki, not own wiki for teams and for sharepoint. Otherwise Teams Wiki should be editable and searchable in SharePoint, and SharePoint Wiki should be editable in Teams. Warren's suggestion is unfortunately an absurd workaround.
If you add a sharepoint tab, or even use the website tab to link to a sharepoint page, it does not show the navigation panel, meaning it only displays one page. Which means that to display a full wiki you have to make a new tab for each page, which is useless.

I see there have been some changes. You can't add a sharepoint library, but have to choose from a list.
I can add "home" in a tab.
Warren's July 8 suggestion is an absurd workaround. Users are presented *by default* with a feature that is confusing and dysfunctional. The Teams wiki should be hidden until it's fully baked or eliminated completely. It's a bad idea.

Yes, please make Teams Wiki editable and searchable in SharePoint, or having SharePoint Wiki editable in Teams.
Dirk Rober commented
This is a general requirement: to be able to include all SharePoint Apps in Teams, not just a Document Library. Of course you can add a website link, but this includes all header and left hand side overhead. Not nice.
Yes, would be nice having one wiki, not own wiki for teams, and for sharepoint. Didnt know this and started doing wiki in teams. and now i know that i can also make one in sharepoint. Would be nice if it could be merge together.

This! I'd love it if we could simply add our existing wiki as a tab. I mean, you kind of already can by creating a "website" tab, but maybe a mix between the two would be helpful.
