How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

It should be possible to change the Channel sharepoint file directory

Currently, if I create a new Channel, Teams will automatically create a sharepoint directory with the same name. However, if I change the name of the Channel, the directory name does not automatically change accordingly. If I want to change the directory name to match the new channel name, I am unable to do so. Even if I open the Channel file directory in Sharepoint and manually rename it, the channel connection does not update. In fact, this seems to completely break the connection (i.e. the channel no longer points to the same folder once it has been renamed in Sharepoint)

    Great idea.
    Whenever a channel be created on MS Team. On the Sharepoint should be specific or hidden the folder. What happen if someone deleted and rename the folder or delete them? so on Team will be impacted.

    Very important feature/bug fix since users often misspell channel names and don’t realize before they add content to it or is published.
