We have about 100 to 150 people in our office who will be creating Teams. We have created Standards which requires making 2 specific channels, 6 standard folders in Files for one channel, and 10 standard folders in Files for the second channel. There is a constant pressure in our environment to move efficiently. Needless to say, creating these standard folders is a frustrating experience, especially since the fastest way of doing this is dragging pre-created folders from OneDrive to File Explorer. It would be extremely helpful if you included in the template option when creating a new Team, the ability to copy the Folders in the Files tab of each channel. Any chance of this HAPPENING, and happening SOON?

Thanks for the feedback Lois.

 

Creating teams and channels based on templates is a feedback we have head and evaluating. Please upvote the request at Teams UserVoice.

Thanks for your response. We look forward to hearing status. Just to be clear, of course, now we can create a team and channels with an existing team as a template, but, also, being able to include the folders that were created in the Files tab of each of the channels would be the winner!

Hi,

 

this function is really much expected. Copying folder would help me to standardize the creation of Teams within my company.

Only option I have so far is to go back to sharepoint...
