Provide option to convert existing site to communication site
For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.
It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.
It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.
It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)
Microsoft, please give us the ability to do this.
We need this
I need this. We have so many Classic sites and our users really want/need Communication sites. But I have to convert them to Modern Team sites as the only way to get them using Modern features. They don't want need an O365 Group and all the services it comes with. They just need that beautiful Communication site home page and capabilities as a standalone SP site.
This needs to be done, asap. MS are you sleeping?
