    With the current pandemic and utilizing MS Teams more, I think I have realized why Microsoft didn't think about renaming channels and the folders created in the SharePoint document library behind them. We're using it wrong.

    I believe the intent of channels were to facilitate conversations. The document library behind them was just intended to manage the attachments that people put into conversations. It was never intended to be a replacement for a formal SharePoint site or document library.

    Channels also were not intended to be renamed, and especially the corresponding SharePoint library folders behind them. Once a conversation had run its course in a channel, it was intended to be deleted and a new channel (conversations) would be added as needed.

    The files in the SharePoint library were just to store the files as long as you needed to keep the conversation around. If the documents were formally needed as part of a process, then they should be stored in a regular SharePoint site, which is why you can display a SharePoint site in a tab.

    Teams was thus intended to facilitate conversations and meetings, while SharePoint was intended to manage documents and lists and the two would work together.

    Thoughts? Agree/disagree?

    Like others have said, we already have SharePoint implemented. Creating a new, separate SharePoint site just to use Microsoft Teams will cause confusion for people. It will also make it more difficult for teams to decide where to store documents, and you may end up having documents saved in two different locations. Then you have the added issue of which document is the system of record.
