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 has been "In the works" for nealy a year now.
    Can we please get an update on this or even better implemented. We need to be able to lock this down in our office.

    If Microsoft Teams is serious business tool, it needs to allow companies to maintain their professionalism, which includes professional user photos. I appreciate that some companies may be happy with the "free" approach to user photos, but surely that decision should be up to the company policies, if they wish to go that route or not?

    The last Microsoft response was almost a year ago. Can we please have an update?

    Hey Microsoft - Any update to this issue?

    When will we be able use the Admin console UI, and/or powershell to prevent our users in Teams from uploading their own photo, much like we have some in Skype and OWA.

    Has anyone heard of a resolution as to block users from changing their Teams profile pic yet ? I find it impossible to keep up with O365 changes and features.

    Hello,
    This is an important feature for our company, we require that our profile photo match our security badge photo. Please add this control. Also please provide an update on the status of this request, the last update is dated Aug 6, 2018, which today is 10 months ago. Thanks.

    Hello,

    Its important that this feature is added as staff in our company have been adding their own profile pictures against company policy and makes more work for us to move them back.

    the sooner this feature is added the better :)

    Is this "still in the works" or is there anychance it's going to be implemented soon? Like with so many we'd disabled people being able to change their profile pictures, please can this implemented soon.

    We just finished fully implementing Teams at our company only to now find out that we put a technology in place that will re-enable the users ability to violate our policy! This has to be fixed. We need a global setting to disable the ability for users to change their picture in Teams now!

    We cannot give our students access to Teams, if we cannot prevent them to change their profile picture. All students in our school have the same profile picture, which is very important for security reasons. This is really annoying and I'm sure, that many other schools are not willing to use Teams for the exact same reason!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us disable this. We have resorted to a script that runs every day of the month and sets the Exchange Online picture to whatever is in the on-prem AD but the cloud powershell is so slow we can only do one letter of the alphabet a day.
