Is there a way then when creating (or even after creation) to yammers connected SharePoint site to a Communication Site instead of the default Team Site. In looking at microsoft documentation for planning and rollout of yammer (especially those that focus on leadership engagement they talk about creating a Communication Site to work together with your yammer group. This actually makes sense for a lot of my use cases, since we use Yammer/Teams mostly to get the work done (barely working in the SharePoint Teams site workspace). It just seems like it would be abetter fit for the backend sharepoint site be a Communication Site instead of the team site.
I guess it is always a workaround to just manually do it by customizing the site with the appropriate web parts. But it would be nice to select what template we would like to use at creation.
@Christopher HoardThanks for your response. This is basically what I figured based on the searching i have been doing. It seems a bit counter to some of the infographics, how to use, pr that microsoft has been putting out. Speciffically slides found on this video and this powerpoint. Basically it seems like what you have is a team site and a communication site for basically everything which seems a little overboard, for smaller business. The nice thing is with the webparts you can get something similar from a team site, but it isn't full width and you cant get the navigation (purely aesthetics and UI though). Anyway, i think this is the route I will go since it doesn't make sens to have two sharepoint sites for a single purpose.
unless i am just missing something it just seems like, especially for yammer groups, in many circumstances it would just make more sense to have the sharepoint site be a communication site instead of the traditional teams site.
