“A SharePoint Online team site is essentially an online workspace where you can go to collaborate within your organization,” Michal Pisarek tells ShareGate. “Instead of having your documents stored in file shares and email conversations, SharePoint lets you consolidate everything in one secure online place.”
Microsoft Teams is the hub for teamwork. It allows for collaboration, chat, calls, meetings, and so much more! SharePoint Online is primarily a document management and intranet platform where you store, collaborate, and share information seamlessly across the organization, and is also part of Microsoft 365.
Organizations use Microsoft SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from any device. All you need is a web browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.
SharePoint provides a web-based space where users can upload a document to immediately be shared with other people that need to see it. … Links to shared documents or collaboration spaces can also easily be sent via email, making it easy for users to be quickly directed to exactly what they want to see.
In sum, SharePoint and Teams are better together. Teams doesn’t natively incorporate file sharing and document management functionality — it leans heavily on SharePoint. SharePoint doesn’t have a robust communication capability — it now leverages Teams.
Microsoft Teams integration with SharePoint can come in the form of a Teams app or channel tab. The app option includes “SharePoint” for connecting to pages and lists and “SharePoint News” for pushing news from your sites to your team.
If you don’t have SharePoint Online enabled in your tenant, Microsoft Teams users cannot always share files in teams. Users in private chat also cannot share files because OneDrive for Business (which is tied to the SharePoint license) is required for that functionality.
