    We’ve heard your suggestions and are working on the ability to clone an existing team using a template. When released, if you were to click on Add Team, then Create a Team, you would get the UI pop up that prompts you to “Create your Team” but, if you look to the bottom of the UI you would see the option to choose “Create a team using an existing team as a template”! Once you select that option, you would be able choose which channels, team settings, apps, and members to inherit via a simple setup wizard.
    Look for this feature to release by the end of the calendar year! And thank you all for the great feedback. -Warren

    This would be nice sometimes to find a conversation. I wouldn't ever want this to be the default, but would be nice to help when searching sometimes.

    Absolutely agree with the other recent comments: discussions are lost and fragmented because people (even experienced IT people and developers) accidentally start a new conversation instead of hitting the Reply button/link. Some of these are obviously intended to be replies, like "Yes, let's do it that way.". That has ZERO MEANING as a new conversation, but makes perfect sense as a reply. I like Greg Ewing's suggestion of making the Reply look more like a text entry area. It should be just as easy (maybe easier) to respond to an existing thread than to start a new one. Currently it requires an extra click, which subtly discourages replying (we all naturally go to the text entry field and start typing).

    This problem is compounded by the lack of ability to rename a Team (including the corresponding SharePoint site). This means that the only way to rename a Team now, assuming you're willing to sacrifice the Conversation history, is to create a new Team and copy over the Teams. This is not a good work-around at all, but because we can't really rename a Team (changing the display name just creates confusion, because then it no longer matches the associated SharePoint site, so we prohibit this by policy), we have to "move" Channels to new Teams to effect the rename.

    Please give us a way to move channels so we can do this without losing all the conversation history. VERY IMPORTANT.

    This is important specifically because owners can rename a Team and that does not rename the corresponding SharePoint site or e-mail address. This creates confusion. As part of our internal processes and training, we try to teach owners to never rename a Team. It's currently impossible to enforce this.

    Best solution would be that renaming a Team also renames the SharePoint site, e-mail address, Office 365 Group, etc.

    Second best solution would be to give us the option to prevent owners from renaming the teams. At least that would allow us to ensure we can keep all the naming in sync.

    It should be possible to rename the underlying Plan from with Teams, maybe have it named for the Team or Channel, so changing those should change the SharePoint and Planner names, but I agree with the other users who have commented here that the Tab name should be separate from the Plan name. Tab real estate is VERY limited, so I would never want to use them all up with a Planner tab "Long Project Name Involving Lots of Words Planner" when simply "Planner" would do.

    At the very least, if this feature is implemented, please allow us an option to keep the tab name separate.

    Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

    - Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook

    - Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams

    - Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

    See this post for more information:

    Thanks!

    I think this may not have been upvoted a lot yet because it's not obvious that this is missing until you try to start scheduling meetings with the Team. For people who are used to still inviting each individual from Outlook, they haven't noticed this yet. But as more and more people start working with Teams and expect to use it to schedule meetings, it's a major pain that it's effectively impossible to do this. It prevents using Teams to its fullest, forcing us to keep doing things the old way in Outlook.
