It seems that the ability to use an existing Team as a template when creating a new Team has disappeared. I still have the option to create a Team from an existing O365 Group, but not to use an existing Team as a template. This is the case in both the desktop app and browser, and in other customer tenants I have access to.

 

Anyone know why this functionality has been removed and when it will be back?

Yes! This seems to be the case! AFAIK there’s no explanation to this yet!

Thanks Adam, seems it's a widespread issue. It's a rather handy feature - would be nice to see it back..!

Us too!  Just in the process of showing some great features of Teams and now this has disappeard.

Yeah, I’ve been in this situation multiple times, showing or do trainings and stuff are gone or not working :)

I’ve reached out to the MS teams team on Twitter and will post back if I receive any news about this! Maybe someone else here knows more too

What are your thoughts about reaching out to MS through the admin portal?  Do they have a Teams support team?

I've submitted a service ticket through the admin portal. please join me in doing the same.

I did a log out / log in this morning and it's back!

I've got it back too, hurrah!

 

Power to the People :)

Congrats :):party_popper:

Yes, back for me too!  Woop woop!
