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.

Would love to have the duplicate/clone feature for both a Team and channel level. We have to re-create a channel each time we setup our project. It would save a lot of time setting up if we can copy from a template channel.

On the face of it, this doesn't seem like it should be difficult.
Why do we want to duplicate a channel? Well because the channel is private, but of course you can't make a private channel public.
Why did we want to make the channel public? Because we wanted to add Planner to it, but of course you can't add Planner to a private channel.

There is no channel template functionality in MS teams.
So being able to duplicate already made channels is crucial for streamlining collaboration processes.
Would love to be able to duplicate. At the moment staff accessing Teams through a Chrome GLOW site and would like to be able to transfer this to the O365 site on return to school.

+1 I would like to have multiple channels with a common structure , a planner tab that I could drag/drop between channels would also work for me (I can duplicate a planner tab... I just can't move it to another Channel)
YES! Being able to copy folder structures, and Outlines into the WIKI would be amazing
Yes this a must...would love to have this Duplicating feature....
Could this be implemented by increasing the number of options in the "create a new team based on and existing team" procedure?
that's is kind of disappointing that this function does not exist - does not seem to be such a challenging thing to implement.
however, it would be VERY, VERY useful

Please make this feature available sooner!

Looking for this urgently. With private channel in place, lot of options emerged for effective utilization of channels. This is a must feature now
can you use powershell to create this ability?
The "Duplicate" feature seems to be missing from a bunch of places inside Teams. We can't Duplicate Forms, channels, Plans from Planner, etc. It's a very important bunch of features to make work easier!
channel duplication would be very very useful
Need this, ASAP.

This is DEFINITELY needed!!!!
Likewise, would like to be able to duplicate a channel so my project folders will all be setup for every single channel.

We would like to be able to set up a common channel template to be used for projects within TEAMS, but need the capability to copy channels.

Upvote on this - I'm using Wiki tabs in channels and it'd be massively useful to be able to copy
