MS Teams/Sharepoint

Hi there, I have been asked to create links between about 6 folders in a private channel of One Team - and put these shortcut links into a new private channel of another Team. This is to allow this new team to reference back to completed work of another team. Please can you explain the steps of best practice to do this? (Permissions are not an issue.) Thank you in advance, Sarah

RE: MS Teams/Sharepoint

Hi Sarah

Thank you for using the forum to ask a question about Microsoft Teams and sharing links

Best practice when creating Links
When creating links please use the "Open in SharePoint" option in Teams to go to the web view. Do not use the Share/Link option from inside Teams.

Best practice for adding Links as Shortcuts
When in Private Channel - this is a separate SharePoint site so use the Open in SharePoint for the web view
Click new at the top - choose link and paste the link you created.
This will make a shortcut back to the previous folder.

If you have any further questions please do let us know

Kind regards
