Working in project groups means standardize your workflow to work more efficient. Also this has a benefit for your employees to find everything in the same place and structure.
Create a Team based on a template.
In Microsoft Teams go to “Join or create a team”.
Select “Create team”
Click “Create a team using an existing team as a template”.
Now select your base template that you want to copy.
Change the Team name and select what you want to include from your base template, in the example below i have copied everything.
Because it is called a template it will not copy any content from the template to the new Team.
Your new teams will now be created based on your base template.
After creating, you can add some more members if needed.
When your team is ready it will show as the last Team in your favorites column.
