Hello,

Is there a way to create Teams template ?

If already planned when ?

We're working on team templates. We're also currently working on a feature which would allow you to use an existing team as template and allow you to use the channel structure and team info for a new team without bringing in any of the content or conversations over

Great. Any availability date ?

When you're saying you are working on Team templates, does that also include Planner templates and Sharepoint templates.  In our company wee need 'templification' of all these apps, so when a new Team is created it is based on an existing SharePoint template and a Planner template.  Will that be included?

Any timeline on this??

Are we able to have all teams reference a master template? I think this would be greatly beneficial.

 

In the event more granular settings have been introduced (e.g. recently there were two more permission toggles for guest access) we would have to go through every team and manually update them.

 

Having a team template is useful on creation, however in the future when needing to change the settings of all the teams created by a certain template I think it would be hugely beneficial to have a master template which is referenced by all the other teams.

Any news here? When will this feature be available? 


Highlighted

Another vote for templates / forms here.  We would really appreciate the ability to create forms - possibly with optional/mandatory fields, which can be tabbed through.

 

An option to add / change the fields under the "Bucket" sub-heading might also beneficial.

At least it should be possible to choose your own SharePoint site template to be used as the site where the files are stored.

We need the ability to use a template for our teams, any updates on this feature? 

Highlighted

I'm also looking for such template

+1 for Team Templates

I need this to, how long will it take.  It should be a standard feature 

Highlighted

Why is such a simple request taking more than 4 months? 

Highlighted

Joe you sound like a Project manager a simple thing like this..... ;)

Well it is way more complicated than you think as you need to provision teams only you also need Exchange, SharePoint and Skype... 

Highlighted

Haven't been a PM for a LONG time, but I have done SharePoint, exchange, etc. and I don't see why it's so difficult to allow at least cloning of teams. At least until they can get "template" defined correctly. 

Highlighted

I understand and hope for a fast solution. I guess the team is now working on Skype migration to Teams. Hope that they fix this as well would love to be able to Provision and migrate teams. within Office365 instead of doing all manual

We have created pages (SharePoint team site) with supporting guidance in how to use Teams and the various tools, and then linked them as tabs in the Teams channels - this is to support self-service and drive adoption.
At the moment it's all centralised and very manual, if we had templates we could think of completely automate the creation of new Teams in my organisation (4k employees), starting from Forms which would assess the type of new team (project, community, cross-org groups..) and apply the related template.

Highlighted

The lack of this has stopped me using MS Team and moved onto TeamGuru.

I noticed with powershell on New-team we have a template option , anyone else tried it out

New-Team -Template EDU_class will give you a team based on the template class in Teams for education, which includes an assignments tab as well as a OneNote Class Notebook etc

Hi @Nick Botha, yes I have used the group id created using Azure to create a new team and it is working well. The new team gets created immediately with the members added in the group.

Though "Teams Templates" seem to be officially slated for Q4 based on the public roadmap site, we saw this functionality show up in our tenant recently and I blogged about it here: https://www.avepoint.com/blog/microsoft-teams/microsoft-teams-template-guide/.

Hi John do you mind if I reference your blog in my blog post for this subject? Since this isn't really documented yet I thought your blog did a solid job of covering this topic.

If you use the option to create a team based on another team, I was wondering if the underlaying SharePoint site is also used as it is set up? Because our requirement is a one-year retention for the documents on the underlaying SharePoint site that is default created with the Team.
Our users already have a team SharePoint site and will connect their existing site to the new Team environment, so they will not use the default SP site. That means that documents that are created on that default site are automatically removed after one year. Those are the document use in the posts.
So, we are looking for a quick way not to change the Content Type and Retention afterwards. Templates would be the way to go.

Highlighted

John, good write-up. I went through the process also, and found that it's about 60% ready for prime-time. Having the overall team format is great, but I still need Files, Wiki and OneNote duplicated to meet our needs. I can see your point that content like this may not be the same for the target Team, but it can be in many instances. It should at least be an option to copy content also. Hoping to see this needed functionality added soon! 

Highlighted

Will it be possible to "use an exising team as a template" combined with create a team from an existing group? 

Highlighted

Why no mention in your article of the fact that the URL of the new team site is the same as the original with Copy2 appended to it.  This is unacceptable. Why would I want every site in my tenant to have the same URL.? After selecting a Team to use as a template and changing the name I don't want the mismatch between the Team name and the URL.

Highlighted

Not seeing that behavior in my tenant--- the URL takes on the name of the new Team you create (as long as you change the name in the creation process).

Highlighted

Are the templates discussed here still in development?

 

Would love to be able to create templates in PLANNER...

 

I can create a project process 'template' using in its own channel setting up the buckets etc. but when you add this to another channel (project) it updates everything and doesnt use it as a template as such.

 

Until this has a proper function/workaround i'm back to using Basecamp.

 

Shame...
