If it is possible to do so, how does one redirect a SharePoint Communication site to SharePoint Team Site?  The scenario is, the communication site is no longer needed but we want to redirect its URL to a Team site.  Doing so would prevent having to inform all of the end users of the new team site URL.

 

Thanks.

Not sure if this will quite fit what you are trying to achieve, but take a look at this - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/manage-site-redirects

Thanks for link.  Will take a look.

Totally agree, Site swap is the way to go here
