How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Channel templates

It would be nice to have a template for the Files section in Channels. Define your directory structure once, then apply it to every new Channel created in a Team.

    It would be nice to create new channels from a template channel. Right now we have to manually create the same folders everytime we create a new channel.

    Having an option to create channel from a template is a must have, we have that problem today. Having to create channels and re-add all the same tabs over and over is counter productive.

    I have the same scenario and almost the same need as Mark Koenig's client. I would like the functionally of creating new channels with the same structure within a team. I would also like the functionally of archiving a channel so that only current channels are visible, thus reducing clutter.

    Having a channel template would be a fantastic addition. To illustrate, I have a client who uses Teams to manage their construction jobs. The team is "Construction," each channel is a job. Jobs have the same basic criteria: To-do's, checklists, spreadsheets, etc. It is relatively time-consuming to recreate a channel manually whereas a repeatable template would increase efficiency and reduce oversights.

    Something that we would love. I am try to redefine our business processes using teams at the moment and have created a template however I do not want it to be a Team. A Channel would fit us much better.

    Also I would prefer to to not be a default on every new channel in a team as requested above. Having the template as optional would be much better. That way I could have more than one template per team.
