Add a SharePoint page or list to a channel in Teams

Add a SharePoint page or list to a channel in Teams

In Microsoft Teams, you can add published SharePoint pages or lists as a tab in a Teams channel. SharePoint pages let you share ideas using images, video, links, and documents. SharePoint lists are a great way to collaborate on content and data.

Team members can view pages, edit lists, and add comments in the Teams tabs. Add the SharePoint tab in Teams to quickly paste any page, news post, or list from a published SharePoint site.

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.
