If I create a new team from a group does that group have to be an Office Group, or can it be an AD group?  Also, does the group sync with the team membership, meaning when employees come and go, membership will also automatically come and go?

 

Thanks for the information

Hi, the group must be an O365 / M365 group, not a Security or Disti Group.  Membership will sync between Teams and the group.

Thanks and that was my guess, Now I wonder if I can create a new M365 group and have it sync with an AD group?

No, that's not possible I'm afraid.
