I've created a sharepoint site choosing the "teams site" configuration, and afterwards realized it fits better my needs to have a "communication site", is it possible to convert the original teams site to a communication site? thanks.

It's currently not possible to convert a modern Team Site to a Communication Site i'm afraid.  

 

You enable the experience on Classic Sites, but as yet not existing modern Team Sites as per - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/sharepoint/modernize-classic-team-site

Peter is correct: it's not possible and it's not going to be possible IMHO

Thanks so much @PeterRising Even though I really wanted it to happen, your answer helps me a lot to stop struggling for that. I was expecting I could reverse the process, and change its configuration, but then I rather focus on creating a new site.

 

 Thanks again, best, Astrid

Gracias Juan Carlos,

Muy útil saberlo. Realmente me resuelve una encrucijada de varios días,

saludos, Astrid
