Our team site name is too long and makes it hard to save large file names in subfolders. A solution is to reduce the characters in the team site name.

  • My question is how will this affect our users?
  • We have all connected our Sharepoint site to our PC's via OneDrive. Will everyone need to restart?
  • will the changes take place immediately?
  • will this cause any errors?

  • Title of site collection – Ashley Walker Dec 13 '18 at 19:03

If you change the title of the site collection, it will not cause any errors.

And after you change the title of the site collection, the title of site collection will change immediately.

If the site is connected to the PCs by OneDrive, there is no need to restart.
