Create and manage Microsoft Team templates through Teams Admin Center

Team templates are pre-made definitions of a team's structure, designed around a need or project. You can create a template using the Teams client and then upload and manage the templates that are in your organization saved. These templates can be assigned to specific groups using team policies.

Creating a new team using templates is a new feature that you can use to more quickly offer a Team with a clear structure to users. These scenarios can speed up team creation because they are grafted to the needs of the organization.

Microsoft is already providing these 13 scenarios to get started quickly. You can also write your own scenarios and provide the necessary channels so that each team will get started in the same way.

What scenarios are already available?

Retail, Organizing a store, Managing an event, Managing a project, Organizing a help desk, Quality of safety, office 365 Introducing, Responses to incidents, Collaborating on a global crisis or event, Collaborating on patient care, Collaborating within a bank branch, Introducing employees and Hospital.
