Teams copy folders to a new team

New Contributor


I wanted to know if its possible to setup a Team and use it as a template for new teams and chanels.

Im using teams for PM work and currently have to create a new team for a new project, but have to create the whole project folder structure and documents within said folders for every new project, this takes time and is rather annoying, any ideas?

@Nickruther Hi, have a look at the Teams custom templates.


Create a custom team template in Microsoft Teams - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs


Btw, look to the left in the navigation bar as well to see other options such as "create a template from an existing team in Microsoft Teams". Note the preview/early release info though.

Hi @ChristianBergstrom I had a look at that but the company already has a folder structure in place which i want to keep.

How about create a template from an existing team?

@ChristianBergstrom I found a way to do it, create a folder structure with document templates however you need, then upload to your team and it copies all folders and files from your PC.
