Teams - How to Manage Files and Folders in a Channel

Microsoft Teams Channels is a great way to communicate and collaborate. I love group chat also, but one HUGE advantage a Team has over a group chat is the ability to manage files and folders.

Teams Channel - Drag and Drop to move files or folders in a channel

With a group chat, you can't create folders. We will be in a Channel and examine how to create folders and files and move folders and files. We will also show how to move folders or files from one Channel to another Channel. Remember, files in a chat and group chat are stored in OneDrive, and files and folders in a Team are stored in SharePoint.
