Hello,

Is there a way to create Teams template ?

If already planned when ?

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.

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.

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! 

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

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.

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).

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...
