How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Block change picture

In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

        This is a real issue for us as we only allow pictures that are part of our badging system to be used. Our users Active Directory photos are synced to O365 and are used as the profile photos within the applications. The ability to change these photos for all applications has been disabled using the OWA Mailbox Policy powershell setting. One of our users just figured out he could update it through Teams to an inappropriate picture. We may need to Disable teams until this is fixed

        Nothing done about this extremely annoying problem since Oct 2017, seriously?
        And why isn't there just one global setting for all Office 365 apps in the first place??

        This is a big omission in the regulating of Teams in a corporate environment. This might seem like a little thing but I assure you it is the things like this that will get everyone "talking" and experimenting on what they can get away with. We emphasize that it is important to have an approved pic loaded so others can easily see who they are collaborating with. If someone loads a pic of their pet, that helps no one. Please get this done.

        This is a HUGE flaw in Microsoft Teams. If MS plans to force clients to Teams to replace Skype for Business then this request should be implemented ASAP!

        Really in need of this as well. We haven't quite rolled Teams out to the company yet and this may be a blocker to us rolling it out.

        Any updates on this function? It has been since Aug 2018 since your last response. Our users are continuing to upload photos, some very inappropriate, and our CTO is asking how this can happen.

        I agree this is something that should take the weekend to accomplish. As of last year, there were over 134,000 employees at Microsoft. Just pick a few and work through it. REALLY!?

        This is crazy, how can it take so long to fix this? Microsoft made 16.5 Billion dollars in profit last year. Hire more people to work on your shiney new projects such as Teams.

        I don't think there is a PowerShell Script to block this feature tenant wide. PowerShell only offers cmdlets to change the profile picture of specific users, or am I missing something?

        It's been half a year, there's even a PowerShell Script for it. How is it still not a button in the Admin Center?

        Blocking the ability for a user to change their photo in Teams is absolutely critical! You allow us to block it in OWA, but not Teams? Seems like it should be an easy fix.

        This is a MUST HAVE feature for schools, since most schools won't be willing to use Teams if there is no way to prevent students from uploading their own profile pictures!
