Create a Hub for all the Teams channel sites

I had an interesting use case come up the other day with one of my clients. They had a Team in Microsoft Teams and created several private and shared channels in it. Those private and shared channels, of course, had their own SharePoint sites created as a result. And while the client could access all the channels and corresponding files from the Teams interface, they also wanted a quick way to search for all the files located in both the main site and the channel sites from the SharePoint interface. Want to hear the solution I proposed to them? Keep reading, then!

The problem

Before I explain the solution, it is important to understand the architecture of what happens behind the scenes. So when the client created a Team in Teams, it also created a SharePoint site to house all the standard channel documents (folder for each standard channel).

What is SharePoint HubSite?

A SharePoint HubSite is a type of site in Microsoft SharePoint that serves as a central location for organizing and connecting related sites. It allows you to bring together related content from various sites and present it in a single, unified view, making it easier for users to find and access the information they need.

A HubSite includes features such as a common navigation bar, a search box, and a newsfeed that can be shared with all the sites associated with the HubSite. It also includes a site design that can be customized and applied to all the associated sites, making it easy to maintain a consistent look and feel across the entire HubSite collection.

HubSites can be created and managed by SharePoint administrators, and they can be used in various ways, such as to organize and connect sites for a specific project or department, or to create a centralized hub for information about a specific topic or area of interest.
