Hello and welcome to the series ‘Let’s Learn a Microsoft 365 topic’, today’s topic is “Microsoft Teams Templates”. We will try to understand what it is , why it is important and how to work with it?

Before Teams was introduced we had/have “team site template” in SharePoint which was the place for collaboration and sharing files. Introduction of Teams has off course changed the way we collaborate for better.

The things we were missing till now was Templates because one Team cannot fit all and we definitely needed different sets of Templates.

Now as an end user you can select one template when you create a Team and as an Admin you can create multiple templates based on existing Team templates, create a new one from scratch or use an existing team to create a template.

So let’s have a look at all the options in the video.
