How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Install to Program Files instead of appdata due to blocking EXEs from other locations

We are implementing AppLocker to block ALL EXEs from running from other locations other than Windows and Program Files. We know we could make an exception, however it is still a vulnerability as users can still alter data in the appdata. In addition, for every user it will have an individual install. I understand the ease of use and profile based configuration that Teams is geared towards, however we would like BOTH options for enterprise and education environments.

    YES to this, I have locked local storage on Intune PC's for Elementary school students, they have their own users to log on and Teams need to install on every user, that is quite unecessary and sometimes it bugs out and never install itself as well, if we could get a install to programfiles, at least it would be available to all users at all times.
