Create modern team site no group


#1

Hi
with the current ‘Create Modern SharePoint Site’ action,
for the Site Type I can select TeamSite or CommunicationSite or enter a custom value.
(However there is no doco on the custom value options)

When I select TeamSite it will create a modern team site with a group connected.
This is site template GROUP#0
When I create a site collection through the new sharepoint online admin interface I can create a team site with no group (through the other options selection).
This creates a site collection with web template STS#3.

I am building a solution based on a list item that a team site - site collection is created
(Similar to your projects list example in the doco)

It would be great to create modern sites using the STS#3 team site with no group template.
Could this be added as an option or let me know how I can use the custom value to access this now?
Thanks,
Gavin

Hello, @gavinadams

For now, we have finished the development of the feature and are going to release it which can take several weeks. You will see it as a new item in the "Site Type" selector: "Team Site Without Group." If you want to start using it earlier, create a custom connector.

Fantastic thanks for that.
