in Microsoft Teams

Content Explorer

Content Explorer bridges the gap in document management between SharePoint and Teams. Adopt the Content Explorer app in your organization for easy access to files from SharePoint hubs, and subs-sites right within Microsoft Teams.


How the Content Explorer App works


Configure your Content Explorer

To get started, add Content Explorer to a channel and configure it by going into settings and input a URL to a selected hub.

Interact With Site Content Structure


The app displays all the libraries of a selected hub and its sub-sites which allows you to access any of the content directly within teams. This shows what a flat layout would look like.

Configure what you want your app to display.  You can choose...​​

  • to display document libraries, calendars, custom lists, system libraries, sub sites

  • to open links in Teams

  • whether you want your layout to be flat or grouped. This shows what a grouped layout would look like.
