    try this instead  ·  Warren responded

    Updating the status to “Try this instead” and have added the clarification that after 30 days the name is once again available.

    The reason for this decision was that Channels can be restored 30 days after being deleted. During this time, we intentionally don’t support creating a channel with the same name. After the 30 days, the name is available.

    You can workaround this by restoring a deleted channel, renaming it, and then deleting the channel again. The previous name is then available for use.

    This workaround has already been mentioned in the comments and if an immediate reuse of a Channel Name is required, this is the recommended solution.

    Warren:

    Your statement that "After the 30 days, the name is available." is inaccurate. Actually, Microsoft Teams even lists this as being a known issue on the webpage https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/known-issues as of November 8, 2018. It states the following:

    Issue Title: Users can't recreate a pre-existing channel name
    Behavior / Symptom: Once a channel name has been created, even if it's deleted, it cannot be recreated. Our system maintains this data for information protection scenarios.
    Known workaround: No workaround.
    Discovery date: 3/13/17

    We are experiencing this now as we created a channel named 'Wrike' and have since deleted it months ago. Now we need to recreate a channel named 'Wrike' but Microsoft Teams says the name already exists.

    Do you agree Warren you should update your 'Try This Instead' posted on 10/18/2018 to disclose there is still a known issue when reusing a channel name as described by Microsoft and that your statement that 'After the 30 days, the name is available.' is not always accurate?

    working on it  ·  Warren responded

    This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.

    While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.

    Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.

    Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
