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.
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.
Yes please, our business have just switched to 365 and this was the first question i asked, seems so obvious but can't do it!!

Yes, I need the functionality that allows the duplicate of a Channel within a Team much more than I need to be able to duplicate a Team.
Yes please please makes this function available already!

This is a glaring omission! We need to provide a consistent framework of tabs/wikis across a growing number of teams but there is no way of achieving this.

I'm in the same boat as everyone else. It should be a way to go around this need. We have 28 departments and majority of the departments have similar projects every month on specific areas and we have a structure that we want to maintain across them. But, it's time consuming to setup a channels for each department. We have a template and we want them to use it. This is 2019!! This is a need!
+1 for another user that very much needs the ability to clone channels to retain our tabs from project to project.
Agreed about this. The first thing I wanted to do with Teams was create a Template so I can ensure we have a standard approach and find I can't.

I'm in the same boat as this small lot. I can't believe there isn't more buzz around this need. I am running my project teams through teams and we have a structure that we want to maintain across them. This is a need!
Yes I agree. We would love to setup a channel as a template and be able to duplicate that with each event that we have.
Currently you can clone a team but not a channel: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33625309-clone-a-team-and-or-a-channel
We use channels to manage our customers/projects - and would love to clone the channels. +1 for this, would be incredibly helpful.
