Going to delete a Microsoft Teams channel and recreate it – Read this...

Problem Background

I deleted a channel in Microsoft Teams and when I try to recreate the channel there was a error message saying “Another channel already has that name. Try a different one.”


So, till date (12th of July 2017) Microsoft Teams don’t allow to create a channel with the same name which was already deleted.

See this thread for more.


Let’s say you have to delete a channel and recreate with the same name. What you can do it simply rename the channel and delete it.

Once you delete with the new name you can create with the old name but not the new.


We all hope that Microsoft will provide us a solution to overcome this issue and in future we can use PowerShell to do a hard delete.
