Microsoft Teams: Syncing Files

Similar to syncing your files stored in your OneDrive account, Teams has the ability to sync files to your computer using the OneDrive Sync App. Note: If syncing Teams files, you may notice a delay in seeing updates to files due to the sync process.

To set up syncing:

In the Files tab of the channel you wish to sync, select Open in SharePoint.

Open in SharePoint

In the window that displays, select Sync.

Select Sync

Select Sync now.


If you receive a notification to switch apps to Microsoft OneDrive, select Yes.

Switch Apps

The files will begin syncing.

Files Syncing

Once the files are done syncing, they can be located in Windows Explorer.
