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.

        Since long before computer systems existed, there are human rules, therefore, if we have an organization, from which we create rules that must be fulfilled, then why not create a basic rule that if a user changes the image of the profile is admonished?, because it complicates us so much for something so simple, that the systems department configure a photo appropriate to the profile of each user as a standard of the company and voila, I do not know why so much complication.

        Microsoft, please fix this. O365 administration should not be this convoluted.

        For those interested, I devised a script and scheduled a job to run every hour that scrubs changed photos...

        #finds mailboxes with custom photos and removes the photos
        $ids = $null
        $change = @()
        [array]$ids = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | where HasPicture -EQ $true | Select -Property Name
        $Ids | foreach{
        [array]$change += $_.name + "<BR>"
        Remove-UserPhoto -Identity $_.Name -confirm:$False -verbose
        }
        #end finds mailboxes with custom photos and removes the photos

        So strange that Set-UserPhoto is not working in Teams

        I agree this needs changed. We have an employee directory built on SharePoint with pictures we set of our users. Use can change photo in Teams and it updates it in EXO & SPO, thus changing it in our employee directory. Worst of all as an admin, I can't change it back. I'll upload new pic to EXO and SPO only for it to revert right back. Please fix this Microsoft.

        Was hoping that Microsoft actually listened and shut this down... Alas, same old Microsoft.

        This should be definitely consistent settings inside Microsoft 365 experience for users when IT sets this policy.

        When we run the command for OWA does anyone know if that is a one time deal, or does it have to be ran more often?

        Microsoft - When will you apply a fix or a way to limit the ability for any end user to change their profile picture?

        +1 for this, We use our Office365 pictures in our email signatures, and users changing their pictures messes that up, at least give us the option to stop users from changing their pictures from any program.
