Apply a Template on your Team/ Provide Massive Update on your teams

When you edit your teams, you can apply a new template to your team. The team will import the settings from a new template. 

Next, you can review the template settings in the general information section. The page will display imported channels and imported owners & members. Applying a new template will not delete the previously existing members & owners. It will only add members and owners appearing in the chosen template.  The same goes for channels.

When you apply a Powell Teams template on an existing team, the existing content like users, channels, tabs and documents will not be deleted. We only add the governance rules and  missing content available in the Powell Teams template.

Update multiple teams at once (template application)

On the page all teams, you can provide a massive update to your teams. 

Administrators can select as many teams as they want and associate a template to all these teams through the button "associate a template."  As you click the button "associate a template," you will choose a template from the list, follow the instructions and validate the change. The change will be immediately applied to all your selected teams. 


Applying a template on several teams at once will not :

- Re apply the site design of the template

- Re apply the naming convention of the template

- Reset to the date of the day, the expiration date of the template

- Update tags (the new tags will be displayed next time a user edit this team). 



Selecting all the teams with the checkbox will select all the visible teams. You can also select the entire teams of your tenant by clicking on "select all" beside this checkbox.


To update multiple teams at once and associate a template to several teams, you can use our API endpoint:

Batching this endpoint on multiple team IDs will apply a template to several teams.



When you execute a massive update, it can be a long operation to update everything depending on the team number in your batch. if you execute multiple massive updates in a short period of time, massive updates will be executed one after one. We recommend performing one big massive update than multiple small ones, if it is possible, to have the best experience and fastest execution.
