It will be great for Microsoft to bring this fix on Teams since Skype for business has it and Teams is now taking over from Skype for business. it seems naturally logical that Microsoft would not leave this feature in Teams now! We have Microsoft Teams and want to implement 360 degree camera meeting room.
We want to faithfully go ahead believing that Microsoft will do the needful in the most shortest time.Chukwu Isdore supported this idea ·
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.
