Add a SharePoint page, list, or document library as a tab in Teams

Bring team resources to one central place so that team members can focus, communicate, and collaborate to get work done. Add the SharePoint tab in Teams to quickly paste any published page, news post, or list from a  SharePoint site. In Microsoft Teams, you can add published SharePoint pages, lists, and document libraries as individual tabs in a Teams channel. Team members can view pages, edit lists, work with their shared files, and add comments in the Teams tabs. 

  • Pages - SharePoint pages let you share information, news or ideas using images, videos and links.

  • Lists - SharePoint lists are a great way to collaborate on content and data.

  • Document libraries - SharePoint document libraries securely store files where team members can find them on any device.

Notes: 

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  • If you don't see an option to add a tab in Teams, partner with the SharePoint team site owner to get access.

  • SharePoint pages can only be edited on the team site in SharePoint.
