Office 365 : Microsoft Teams – Handling SharePoint list from MS Teams Tab


In this article we will discuss how to handle/use SharePoint list from the MS Teams.

Requirement: Today morning one of my colleague was discussing with me that client had asked her to have the SharePoint list in their Teams from MS Teams and members of teams can operate the list from there.

This is something new for me since I know from Teams we can upload documents through Files tab but never seen SharePoint site list. But then at the end its very easy solution 😊 but since I worked on this feature first time so sharing 😊

Solution / Approach: So, bit started looking into teams. I clicked on “+” icon near tabs to add new tab as

And looked for SharePoint app as

Once I clicked on “SharePoint” app I got an option either to add “Pages” or “Lists” as and make sure that “Post to the channel about this tab” option is enabled.

As shown in above snap, currently there is one list “Knowledge Junction”, so selected it. Once we selected the list which we need to add it looks like as below in figure

So we could each and every operation for the respective selected list.  This seems to be very good feature and really liked it
