Hi everyone! If you do not want to use the OneNote Staff Notebook or any of the other default tabs across the various team types, we suggest creating an ‘Anyone’ team instead.
The ‘Anyone’ team will not include any add-ons by default and gives you the flexibility to use Teams however you would like. We understand that there are so many other ways you can use Teams that does not fit the Class/PLC/Staff team template. So ‘Anyone’ will be your best option!
More information on the different team types in Teams for Education can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/choose-a-team-type-to-collaborate-in-microsoft-teams-0a971053-d640-4555-9fd7-f785c2b99e67
Feel free to reply back here if you have additional feedback.
Hi - is there anyway to change any existing team from a 'staff' type to an 'anyone' type? This advice is helpful for before you create, but how do you change after its been created?
While I know you can email various channels to effectively post to multiple teams, it would be great if this was a more sophisticated mechanism run through Teams; as its clunky in Outlook, hard to customise the look of the post, and misleading for people who when 'download' the email even though you'd always intended it to be a post not an email.
Not entirely sure what the point of being able to select a channel to meet in is if it invites everyone in the group! Might as well remove that feature and only have "Meet in group" as an option so you know the audience you're inviting.
This feature is being worked on. We’ll update the status as we get closer to the release.

We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
It is incredibly frustrating to not be able to invite a group of people to a Team meeting. It's hard to look credible when you tell your employee to switch to Teams and new ways of working and then tell them 'oops' sorry go back to how you used to do things!
