Issue Uploading Files to Teams

I was recently contacted about an odd issue occurring in Microsoft Teams where users were unable to upload files.  When users would click on the Files tab, they were met with a message “We are setting up your file directory.”   The message stuck around for a few days.

In order to fix the problem, you’ll need go to Groups, find the corresponding group for you Team (which will have the same name) and upload a file there.

After that, the message from the first screenshot will go away and your users will be able to upload files again.
