    I just had a business development guy go and reorganize files and directories at the SharePoint level since the original channel structure chosen when creating the team is no longer scaling - and the people who were using Teams got flummoxed because all the files disappeared. I had to undo that.

    We will now have a discussion about whether to abandon Teams because of this inflexibility and inability to refactor. It's been almost two years since this was first requested, and many months since it was "put on the backlog". We can't wait around any longer

    Any news? We're starting to suffer from our original organization concepts for Teams, and we're very far down the road in some of the channels we'd like to split off into their own teams.

    Steve Elkind commented  · 

    I'm sorry, but refactoring of teams and channels should have been designed in from the beginning. If you start out with a poor organization of them, then you're stuck with them. Being able to move channels around, or even better, promote channels into teams when it becomes obvious they need a larger scope. We have been unable to come up with a workaround. The ability to refactor would be an obvious need in the face of reorgs, agile projects, etc. would be something I would think to be an obvious feature.

    Steve Elkind commented  · 

    Just came into situation where I needed to "promote" a channel into its own team. Being able to do this in some fashion would be a critical benefit to us. Having to create a new team, and then piece-by-piece trying to copy resources (conversations, ...) seems to be too time-intensive and much may not have good results. Even just moving the channel from the old team to a new one would be usable.

    We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

    Somebody showed me a roundabout way to sync to a local desktop by opening in SharePoint from Teams, then syncing from the SharePoint folder. The kicker is, it looks like it only works on a machine with O365-sourced Office 2016 installed. This isn't going to work for the laptop I normally use when working remotely, which has my personal copies of Visio and Project 2013 installed (and there's no O365 license for those where I'm working).

    Sorry everyone, but the feature team has decided to decline this feature request.

    declined  ·  Warren responded

    The feature team has declined this request due to the fact that a similar experience already exists.

    You can achieve very similar functionality with the existing integration. The OneNote integration has been redesigned so that you can add an entire notebook as a channel tab, but always show a particular section (be it new or existing). Within each tab, you can also create other sections as well as pages within any section to better organize your notes.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions.
    -Warren

    Steve Elkind commented  · 

    I sort of like OneNote and use it a lot. My biggest frustration with it is the design into sections and pages leaves only two levels of hierarchy - section groups don't really add a level, since there's no content at that level. By deliberately removing the sections level of hierarchy, you're left with only one level. Especially frustrating if you started your organization wrong, and what you now have as a channel should really be at the team level - with no way to promote it to one.

    I've taken to largely ignoring the Teams Notebook feature, and just creating a freestanding Notebook in OneDrive.

    So my vote would be either adding the capability of a channel notebook as a channel tab, or at least as others suggested adding the ability to create a section group as another option for a channel tab.

    Steve Elkind commented  · 

    I agree. i view Confluence as perhaps the best wiki I've ever used, and I usually get forced to a poor MS substitute with reasons such as "SharePoint is a wiki". In Teams there are only two levels of hierarchy, and no easy hyperlinking to result in a richer hierarchy. I hate to say it, but the Teams wiki is way too limited to be of much use.
