    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.

    Note that I also tried the restore and rename option but there are 0 channels listed under "Deleted".

    I have a Channel called "Personnel" that I deleted months and months ago however, I still cannot reuse the name. There appears to be a bug in the 30-day freeing up of these names.

    I also tried the web client in a Chrome browser instead of the Mac Client and I am getting the same results.

    Not sure this is a multi-user issue as someone alluded to here. I have the same problem so I downloaded the spreadsheet, uploaded it as a new file with a different name to Teams and then created an Excel Tab and I still have the same problem :(

    This is SO important and can be a real competitive differentiator for Teams. There is so much information that I have to deal with on a day-to-day basis and anything that takes away distractions and makes it more easily digestible is very valuable!

    I agree. If we had threaded chats that you could tag or label then we could do some really useful stuff! For example, imagine if in your chats you could keep track of your 1-on-1 meeting? You could type in an agenda, have the chat screen visible while you conducted your meeting over video with the person and type in notes that both of you could see. You'd have agreement on what needed to be done, a summary of the discussion, etc. You could update it after the 1-on-1 with updates on progress, revisions, etc. and with the tag, you could always refer back to. You could also search for the tags and get a list of your 1-on-1 meetings. What a great way to pull together the info you need for review time!

    I started using Teams about 1 month ago and set up several Channels with Wikis in each. When I would highlight text in text under a section, the formatting menu popped up and I was able to create hyperlinks by clicking on the hyperlink tool — a button with a chain on it. (I created many). Now when I go back into Teams that tool is no longer available. Will this be coming back soon?
