Use flows in teams created from templates

Microsoft Teams templates are pre-built definitions of a team's structure that are designed around a specific business need or project.

Power Automate templates and team templates are meant to address similar business scenarios. When you create a team with a Microsoft-provided team template, you get a curated selection of flow templates that are specific to your team scenario.

Here are the five team templates that support scenario-specific flow templates.

  • Manage a Project
  • Manage an Event
  • Organize a Help Desk
  • Incident Response
  • Onboard Employees

For example, if you create a team from the Manage a Project template, the recommended flow templates on the Power Automate tab in the General channel is filtered to your Manage a Project scenario.
