Today we announced that Teams Templates have become generally available, allowing you to quickly pre-define a team’s channel, install apps, pin tabs, and more. Found a team setup that works best for a type of project or work-style in your organization? You will now be able to easily create new teams based on best practices and lessons learned by leveraging a new REST endpoint as part of the Microsoft Graph API.
We’re also pleased to introduce Teams-based template types, which are special templates that Microsoft created for specific industries. This initial launch will include:
- Education templates such as Class, Staff, and PLC teams
- Retail templates such as Store and Manager Collaboration teams
- Healthcare templates such as Ward and Hospital teams
You will also have the ability to extend these base templates to better fit your organization’s workflows by leveraging the APIs found here.
