Folder Views: Modifying View/Creating Views: Reduced in Teams
Teams is all about making a collaborative experience easy while still using great SharePoint tools.
Due to the organizational features of the teams document library (folders within folders), you lose the ability to create modified views of the files without affecting the whole library. For example, in SharePoint, most people work within multiple libraries, one on the main page and other libraries on the sub-sites. This type of organizational structure allows for the creation of multiple views for specific stakeholders involved. Additional columns can be created for one library and not the other, and so forth. It allows for greater and specific customization.
However, the teams library is one main library with sub-folders based on the number of channels. If you would like to do unique views for each folder along with unique columns, this cannot happen without affecting the entire library.
Additionally, if a column is added in the teams library on the SharePoint site, the new columns are not displayed on the Team's site. It only shows the defaulted columns, not any new columns displayed. This eliminates the adding columns feature, since most stakeholders involved will use the Teams view, not the view in SharePoint view.
Is Microsoft working on improving this concern?
Lars, there is a workaround. If you add a Tab "website" and you copy the link from the folder you get the possibility to use metadata and views. But the online version of Teams has some issues with frames.
