Allow global admin to be able to see all Teams (or sites) at one location or one page
It would be great from management point of view if we could see a list of all teams or their related sites from sharepoint at one location.
That way we'll know what all teams are there and it would be easy to navigate.
This is another design disaster! Just wonder who is the main architect for the MS Teams? Feeling a marketing person has designed this product without any tech/CS background!
This is the same architectural disaster implemented in MS-GROUPS. Years later MS still have no explanation as to why they want to allow 1000's of secret site collections to be created that are invisible to IT. Meanwhile their sales teams are pushing MS-TEAMS as if its the holy grail..like all the other ones before they've pushed - it isn't - its just a technology.
Administrating Teams is annoying. Have to join each team before I can change library settings.
I am shocked. I cannot think that a Global Admin cannot access the content of a Team but must explicitly join each Team or ask users to invite them to join ! Think about a user that creates a Team for itself for collecting illegal content.
Please, fix it asap !

900 team sites - I cannot administer 3/4 of them as I do not have access. Global Admin in O365 should have full rights.
I agree, this is needed. As other admins have posted, our users aren't familiar with team sites, and I can't assist them because I can't access their teams without joining, or requesting to join, and then leaving.

I agree with other posters that we need a section in either the Teams Admin Center or the SharePoint admin center in order to do administrative tasks without having to join every team in our tenant.
Our users aren't familiar with modern team sites, and I can't assist them as a SharePoint administrator because I can't access their teams without joining, or requesting to join, and then leaving.
Our new Teams admin console now lists about 50% of the teams created in our tenancy (it does the same on another tenancy) listing about 80 when we have about 160. it would be great if we could have the first part working before moving on to the second. Our Prem support people say "it's working through the system" and can't fix it.

Want a mechanism to have the permissions of an Owner without also being a member of the team. E.g. so I can go to the SharePoint site for the team and set Site Collection features and other such things. Right now I have to add myself as an Owner, make my changes, then remove myself from the Team. I do not want to be a member of over 1,000 Teams all the time. Too much noise.
Don’t know if this is what you are looking for but…
Using the example of a Teams site called testteam01 that has created a SharePoint site collection called testteam01
For new sites, teams and sharepoint, there will be a group with the same name as the site. Find this group and add yourself as an owner and you will be able to get in to the site.
If there is no group, or at least not an obviouse one, you can take ownership. For example a site called testteam01
1) Set-sposite -identity https://contosotoycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/testteam01 -owner email@example.com
2) Go into the site as this user, firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Site permissions from the cog in the top right
4) Advanced Permissions settings
5) Site collection administrators on the ribbon
6) Add users and groups here

Global Administrators must have admin permission to all sites in their Tennant. We now have dozens of sites generated by TEAMS that will never be used. Come on Microsoft fix this now
It supposed to come to the admin. Portal for Teams / SfB.
Yes, please implement

If Microsoft is serious about making Teams a success, then they need to provide Global Admin similar to SharePoint Admin. This will enable the support teams to provide the necessary assistance to ensure there is the least impact on productivity and a positive user experience.

This is not manageable and should not be deployed as this quickly gets out of control. Think before deploying teams as your global admins cannot provide any service to users of team sites and will waste everyones time!
Teams seems to ignore the fact that the Network admins need to be able to Backup the document library. If we don't even know a team or site has been created unless we are added to that team, how do we know to back it up??
having the ability to "Sync" files within a team seems like it should be a priority. If my users create a team and have workin copies of files within that team, as the Network Administrator i am responisble for archiving that data. being able to sync it to a NAS is a must. or the users simply cannot use teams.

Not having complete control of Team and Group sites as an administrator is a nightmare. Users come to us with issues and we do not have access to the site for administrative purposes. It is very difficult to work with these users on issues to help them resolve them. The list of sites available in the preview is useless. There is no control provided there except for external sharing. Admins need to have access to the sites and be able to fully administer them.

The tenant SharePoint Admin role should automatically be primary admin of any SharePoint site including ones created by groups or teams or any other app in the eco system. otherwise what's the point of that role.
