Microsoft will allow users to create new Microsoft Teams based on existing Teams structures.

I’ve been using this a lot but it’s lacking the customization part of the team content itself! Started playing with the Microsoft graph to get this story to completion..
Until you easily can create a planner tab and create a finished setup within that plan - it’s lacking...

I correct myself, the template feature doesn’t lack this! It does what it’s suppose to do - a template! But a template is often not enough when we need full automation
Highlighted

I agree. How do we achiev automation? I have a customer that would love that :)

Automation of creating teams?
If you want automation it’s the graph that is of interest here! You’ll need to figure out a way and develop some front end for this as well
New templates for Teams was just released for the Graph also!

For example you could use a sharepoint list that starts a flow which in turn call the graph:

Example:

Then maybe PowerApps on that list :)

Keep in mind that using http requests in flow will require premium licensing started from feb 1!

Is there any hope of a template of folder structure INSIDE the tabs on the channels in the future? I've created a Team template with channels but really need folder structure inside each channel...

 

Thanks in advance!

@Spenser Bullock Hi, When I got the step where I have to choose the team to use as template, I can't find the team I want among the list even though it's a favorite team!

 

what should I do so it's listed to choose it?

Highlighted
You need to be an owner of the team to be able to choose it
Highlighted
Agree with @adam deltinger here - you need to be an owner of the team to do it

Best, Chris

@adam deltinger , Im the owner of the Team, However I was trying to build a teams from a different type when I change the type the correct teams got listed :)

 

Sorry for being so fool :)
