Add a list to a Teams channel

  1. Go to the Teams channel where you want to add a list. 

  2. Select the Add a tab icon, select Lists, and then Save.

    The plus symbol on the toolbar lets you add a tab to the current Teams channel.  

Those steps add a new Lists tab to the Teams channel. From there, you can:

Create a new list from a template

You can create a new list from scratch, from Excel, or use the columns and formatting from an existing SharePoint list. Or you can choose from one of our ready-made templates, as described here:

  1. Select a template that matches your scenario.

  2. Scroll through the template to see the default columns that come with it.

  3. Select Use template.

  4. Give the list a name and description.

  5. Choose a color and icon, if you like.

  6. Select Create.

The list is created with the same columns that are in the template. 

Add an existing list to a Teams channel

  1. Select Add an existing list.

  2. Paste the URL for the list you want, or choose from one of the list names shown to you.
