People have no idea what sharepoint is. Stop confusing us with view in sharepoint.
once we get to sharepoint it is massively confusing. I have never used a service more confusing than a sharepoint site that no one knows exists except through links to the exact location. You're losing people with this horrible structure.

I love the SharePoint feature. Maybe redirect users to the app in which the file was opened or uploaded in (not SharePoint), but don't remove the feature altogether. There are many organizations who "get it" and understand exactly why the feature exists as it does. Some know exactly how to use it because they have researched and learned how to incorporate it in their day to day activities. If you have no use for this feature in your organization, contact your Office 365 admin and ask them to turn it off if possible.
I love the SharePoint feature
Many teachers link to sharepoint site
It’s easy don’t change it

To expand a bit on Martin's comment, SharePoint and online storage are essential components of the infrastructure behind Teams. I doubt there's any danger of SharePoint links being removed. However, I can see how users who are not admins or power users and not familiar with SharePoint could be highly confused after getting unceremoniously dumped to an unconfigured or poorly designed SharePoint site--possibly with little or no user training.
Perhaps a "simple view" could be developed that would restrict navigation into the SharePoint back end and keep users within the Teams environment. When a user or the admin is ready, one or more users could choose"advanced view" to access all SharePoint pages and functionality they have permissions for. Not sure exactly how that would work. Just brainstorming...

I would be lost without the Sharepoint link. Having the ability to connect directly to the Sharepoint site and sync folders and files on multiple devices is a god send. One of the requests on this forum is for the ability to upload folders, this feature exists through Sharepoint.
Please do not remove the Sharepoint link
I agree, sharepoint also has me lost. Not intuitive at all...
A user is in Teams and opens a file to edit online. When they finish they click the folder (or Teams) name at the top to close the document. When the page reloads they are no longer in Teams - they are now in the Groups/SharePoint. It would be helpful if they returned to where they came from i.e. Teams
Although the Team is still open in their original browser tabs it is confusing for users to find themselves in a different environment.
