Add a SharePoint Page or List to a Channel in Teams

In Teams, you can add published SharePoint pages or lists as a tab in a Teams channel if you are an owner of the team. Team members can view pages, edit lists, and add comments in the Teams tabs. Add the SharePoint tab in Teams to quickly paste any page, news post, or list from a published SharePoint site.
