I want to create a communication site within the private group of a Teams team. When I create a new site it only allows me to create team sites, not communication sites.

Do I have to create a totally new site (with URL etc.) and link to it in Teams or what else can I do?

Yes, you need to create a new site. Communication sites are not backed by a Microsoft 365 Group thus cannot host a Microsoft Team. What you can do is create the Comm site and then use the webpage tab in Teams to allow users to navigate to it within the Teams client.

  • Thanks @Trevor. I was afraid that I had to do that. I wanted to avoid creating unnessesary URLs but thats the way it works. :)
