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!

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
