Link Teams to existing SharePoint site
At our office we're using Teams for parts of our Project execution, we use it to communicate, collect information, share files, compare notes, create a wiki, etc.
At the same time we have Project Online, with a registration of the same projects. We use that for our deliverables, time- and projectmanagement. But also for information gathering (as we do in Teams).
How awsome would it be when I integrate some of the Teams features into the corresponding Project site. And Share the library, and the OneNote.
Now we use two libraries (one for Teams and one for Project) and we share two OneNotes (again, one for Teams and one for Project). And sometimes we even use two Wiki's.
Those two libraries and two OneNotes "live" in SharePoint, but regrettably not within the same site-collections.
Now we are faced with multiple registrations, file uploads, etc.
It would be great if this could be fixed.
it's been a year sonce the first post of this idea.
Any feedback from Microsoft on this yet ?
So, the current workflow is to build in the following way;
1: Team site > this creates sharepoint site
This method does not link to PWA, so data is scattered over 2 collections
2: Sharepoint site via Project
This method gets your PWA list accessible online, with all your documents, but can't link to teams.
The goal here, is to have PWA/SharePoint and Teams all int the same collections, so that all data and notes are in one place, but with the added ability of having sharepoint list visible to the pwa, allowing documents from the teams/sharepoint site to be accessed and manipulated.

A SharePoint site is created for every Team Site. The SharePoint site has more functionality.
Currently there is no link to the SharePoint team site from within Microsoft Teams. This is dumb.
Without having the full functionality within the Microsoft Teams app - and without having means to link to and from the Teams app to SharePoint site - makes this all a mess.
There is not enough functionality to make it useful. For instance - the control of access via Teams is simplistic looking - within SharePoint you have full options. So you need to provide a link within Teams to get to the SharePoint instance where we have more options. That OR BUILD IT INTO TEAMS.
Without having an integrated platform - Microsoft Teams will be another wasted effort for all. Both those that have developed and those that have attempted to use it.
