Hello,

 

Recently the "Create team from existing O365 Group" option has disappeared from the create team dialog window.

 

Does anybody know of another way to create a team from an existing group?

 

Thanks,

 


Simon

Very strange, I have still the option to create a Team from an existing Group and also from an existing Team...AFAIK there is not a builtin alternative way for both options. I would recommend to open a support ticket reporting the problem....are you having this problem in both the desktop and web clients?

I've had this happened a few times in different tenants..it came back after a while though

I've literally just found the solution.... If you're the owner of a group that doesn't have a team, then the option appears. If you're not the owner of a group without a team then the option doesn't appear. :)

Yeah I was just about to ask, if you are not an owner of at least 1 Office 365 group that doesn't already have a Team tied to it, you won't get that option.

Open powershell as admin (run --> type powershell, rightclick, run as admin)

Type Install-Module MicrosoftTeams if you don't have the cmdlets installed

Type Connect-MicrosoftTeams and log in

Type new-team -group [O365-group-ID]

It could be generating an error on first try (migration failed/failed to execute skype backend request), give it a couple of minutes and see if the team is migrated correctly: type Get-Team to see the list of teams.

If not, try again with new-team -group [O365 guid].

 

 

I have the same issue trying to create a new Team on an existing Office 365 Group. The instructions listed on this article doesn't work.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/teams/new-team?view=teams-ps 

 

It mentions to use New-Team -Group <GroupGuid>; But it errors out with the following message.

 

New-Team : Error occurred while executing

I got it working if I use New-Team -Group <GroupExternalDirectoryObjectId>

 

Hope this helps someone.

Thank you it worked for me 

Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity <Group> | fl ExternalDirectoryObjectId

New-Team -Group <ExternalDirectoryObjectId of Group>

@Kishore, I’m glad it worked for you.
