Duplicate/Clone a channel within a team
I run regular events which I create a channel for each event within the team, including the planning app with buckets and actions.
It is very time consuming to set up the channel/planner each time and would be preferable to set up a template which I can duplicate for each new event, including the planner app.

Yep. This too please!
I am looking for a way to duplicate a channel (and all its numerous action items) within the same Team.
Yes, I would love this today!

Would love this have this capability. We are doing a major deployment and would like to have a channel for each location, using the same template from Planner. There are multiple buckets, so building it from scratch for each location isn't feasible.
Please make this feature available sooner rather than later!
Absolutely need this functionality!! I need to be able to duplicate a channel with all the existing content in that channel. It is very useful to be able to create a template channel for use.

It would be great to be able to duplicate a channel.
However if recreating the planner is the biggest issue it's pretty straightforward to duplicate plans and then attach the copy to a new channel.
Here's how to copy the plan (go to office online then to the planner app first):

Has anyone received word from Microsoft on this idea/functionality? I have several cases with users who would like to have this available.
This is a missing feature I could do with it - same as in OneNote

would love to see this be a thing! We could use this in our business

Duplicating channels would be very helpful. I need this function really badly!
to track our projects, this would be very helpful to copy a channel we have defined as a standard . Right now, we recreate each channel every time with tabs / folders / connectors ...
In our business cloning a channel within a team is quite essential. Teams would be perfect if they included this.

Even a year later, this would still be a good feature...
I also use a channel per event and would like to be able to duplicate a channel.
I'll add another 'want' as well. We need to create about 50 Channels with the exact same tabs and configuration, and this would make life much easier!
I have a team which tracks several different projects. Each project is a Channel and the content is standard based on a template we defined. Right now we need to recreate each channel every time.
Would be great to be able to duplicate a template channel when a new project start.

Is definitely needed.
Will be very useful indeed! I train new hires and use Teams to monitor/track my own to-do items, their training progress and their overall progress throughout the entire 6 month trial time. Each team of new hire's go through the same process (or slightly modified process), so cloning the entire channel would be a huge help, rather than creating a channel from scratch every time.
can't believe it's even not a thing.

This needs to be added ASAP, being able to setup a Channel Template and cloning would make this application perfect.
