Get link to Teams folder

Hello meisters,


I have the folowing flow:

1) trigger when a new sharepoint list item is created

2) create a new folder in the document library on the site and name it according to the list item

3) create 3 documents in the folder and copy content from template, rename files accordingly to the list item name

4) create sharing link to the sharepoint folder, link type "view and edit", link scope "everyone in organisation" (anyone with the link didn't work, despite having external sharing enabled)

5) copy and paste sharing link into the list item column, so that the folder can be accessed straight from the list


User scenario: internal and guest users need to access the sharepoint list within the teams tab, they also need access to folder if possible within teams.


Problem: The sharing link created in step 4) opens the folder on a sharepoint site, instead within the teams FILES tab. Because the link is for people inside my organisation, sharepoint site refuses to open the folder. My guest users however can access the folder manually through the Files tab.


Question: How do I get folder link within Files tab in Teams?


It's trully mind boggling that the core collaboration tool from the biggest IT company in the world has so many blind spots...
