#Microsoft365 #Office365 #Microsoft Team Only released a couple of days ago, this is yet another feature update that I’m VERY happy with. Creating Teams from Templates will save a lot of time and ensure ‘governance’ and standards. Still a manual process, but this is a step in the right direction for sure!! Think Project and Forum Templates.

New Microsoft Team

When a new Team is created you will only receive the General Channel and need to setup all the Channels, Tabs, Members, Settings etc.

It’s not often that your Teams will have the same Channels and Settings – but think of Project Teams or Forums which do look the same. This means you can setup the Project Standard and then always use that to copy the Team from.

Use a Template

Step 1:  Create Team – click on “Join or Create a Team”

Step 2:  Select “Create a Team using an Existing Team as a Template”

Step 3:  Choose the existing Team

Step 4:  Choose the features / settings to be copied (remember to change the name)

Note:  Tabs might be copied, but you’ll still have to set them up again. This makes sense as you’ll have “placeholders” to remind the team to modify and use these

Something I would love (and yes I need to go add that on the UserVoice) is that the relevant Planner and OneNote gets added by default. This is a great addition – thanks Microsoft!

Have fun saving time 🙂


Purpose of this blog challenge:  I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.

You can also find me contributing to REgarding 365. I’m a member of a group of enthusiasts, sharing their stories, thoughts and opinions about Microsoft 365. Catch us at https://regarding365.com | @regarding365 on Twitter and regarding365 on YouTube
