Allow the central administration of Teams
Currently an Admin cannot use the Admin app to centrally administer Groups, Planners and Teams. This creates a number of risks for an organisation: 1) unable to manage ownership; 2) unable to manage storage; 3) unable to manage information life cycles. Just to name a few. From a security and compliance point of view a central admin function is highly recommended.
Hey everyone — Suphatra’s back! And I’m on the case with this item.
I talked to engineering and I think they don’t understand this request. The requests says “Admin App” — do you mean Admin Center? The O365 portal?
Also, what exactly do you envision for central administration — for example — what can you do now, can’t do, and would like to do with this new feature.
Your feedback will help me get the team to put more resources into this. Thank you!

If only a way to see which teams there are would be good, we now have to look at the office 365 groups and try to match that with all the URL's that we find with the usage report. A simple, these are all the teams and their admins would be so much easier. (so expand the office 365 groups overview with a this is where this group is used)
This is very needed. Admins need to be able to manage global permissions centrally and have much greater control over teams in general.
We need at minimum.
- The ability to delete other users Posts
- The ability to view all created teams and manage the users and permissions of those teams
- The ability to delete/archive any team
- The ability to manage global/default permissions
- The ability to manage the storage for each team
- The ability to manage the SharePoint sites created by each team (and not just through powershell)
Super agree. And we have a bunch of orphaned teams and sharepoint sites created by Teams. Even as a Global Admin - we cannot delete a team or channel. It's incredibly annoying.

We need some administration controls for Teams, it's like the wild west

Agreed. I am super annoyed as an administrator every time Microsoft adds a new application that affects group creation. I don't want end users creating thousands of their own groups that potentially overlap or are redundant. If I turn off group creation for end users in O365 Admin, then make it global

Seconding that. We need an ability to centrally manage Teams&co and also need e.g. Powershell support for that to be able to automate certain tasks
