This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
Scenario A: When creating a new Team, you want to be able to point an existing SharePoint site to that Team without having to migrate the site over. (For example, currently when you create a new Team, we let you elect an existing O365 Group during team creation so it automatically ports all the people into the new Team.)
Q1 "SP library to auto-generate channels in accordance to the folder structure" - YES, our current API process generates nested teamsites at a specific url like xxx1.onmicrosoft.com/Projects/ClientX/SiteY/Project########
Q1 "What would you expect to happen if you selected an existing SP site in the team creation process" -- Ideally we could add/create/extend Teams to existing teamsite URLs
Q2 " How important is this to you" 10 (currently we ad hoc create a parallel unlinked Teams which is making a mess of our project structure)
Q3 "Create Channels API" -- if we could integrate the creation of the Teams with our existing API calls to create the team site, this would be acceptable
Thanks so much!
*** Need to link created teams with nested SP team sites of an existing specific hierarchy ***
We have an automated process by which our internal PM system creates a nested hierarchy of SP team sites like -> "Projects" -> "Clients" -> "Site" -> "Project Number" (nested sites). We need a way to add the creation of a Team to each sub-site (and integrate/link existing team sites if possible)
1) Create Team at specific path or link team to SP team site @specific path
2) Pass / match users upon creation of team site to be added to Teams (moderator and user)
3) Integrate Files/Planner/ETC components to be consistent between SP team site and Teams
I’m switching the status to Partially Done.

Change Prompt: this has been completed
I would like a Sticky post option in each Channel (similar to message boards / "FIRST") which could be used to provide general information / updates / OO as op suggested, pizza, etc
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
