Block specific phone numbers.
Block specific phone numbers.
The feature team is investigating how we can build this in the Teams admin center.

There are approx 50+ pages of low vote count suggestions to block an individual - can these be combined to look at?
My use case, as security operations manager, is, either by the user or admin, to prevent person X (inside or outside of the organisation) from contacting person Y. In the same way email can be setup to block an individual or domain.
In the case of an admin having the option to output messages from person X to an admin account (with a sperate retention policy) this allows HR internal complaint investigations to be conducted and for external cases allows for law enforcement investigations.
Abusive messages and images;
Threats to kill;
these range through disgruntled customers, stalkers and domestic abuse examples.

Any update on this feature? Auto dialers can be a pain calling down banks of numbers so asking many users to block a single number is not efficient of time.
request open for two years and last update January... This is basic functionality for a VOIP system.
Please add this feature as admin we really need the ability to block spam and abusive calls for our staff.
Ben Lockwood commented
It would be helpful to also be able to block phone numbers from the admin console. For example block a call for an auto attendant or call queue.

Can this feature be implemented with even more granular control?
This is all we have aside from making the user go out of their way to block the number:
We just (within the last 2-3 months) got Teams Voice fully running and we are getting robocalls left and right. Need a proactive tool rather than just reactive.

This feature needs to be added as soon as possible
I kid you not, I have had the same marketing phone number call me over 20 times today alone looking for various people in our company! I have politely asked for them to stop calling and they won't! I have blocked the number but as I understand it, it only blocks them from calling my direct line, I need to be able to block them in our call que. please get this feature up and running!
I've blocked numbers but they ring anyway. It's terrible. Vendors can ring me all day long, over and over again. I've blocked the specific numbers but they come through anyways.
This feature needs to be updated to allow better blocking options. I have a user who keeps receiving fax calls.
This is already a feature of Teams... just not at the administrator level

How to unblock number. I somehow block my own number by mistake since the calling requirement voice arent clear or precise. I need to unblock it by 23rd April. Help.
Edit: I am using my phone to manage this but still no avail

New/Set-CsInboundBlockedNumberPattern just does now work for Teams, It takes about 30 mins to block voicemail and then around an hour to block across the entire system for calls. Please can you consider this for higher priority in the Teams admin center. Thanks.

So many robocallers and now they're automatically redialing until you finally pick up, no matter how many times you decline. I tried to sign up with Nomorobo which works great on my iPhone (ATT) but it isn't compatible with our Teams phone line.
Under review...ROFL...come on Microsoft...that and the ability to route PSTN outbound from a Call Queue and Auto Attendant are in every phone system on planet Earth but your's in the cloud!!!!
James Lupton commented
It is essential that the facility to block numbers should be provided at organisation level or perhaps even better that these are handled at Cloud PBX level before call routing or Auto-Attendants.
We have just carried out the procedure below using the SfB functionality however this would need to be part of Teams before a full switch over could be implemented.
Could someone from Microsoft plaes confirm this is on the near future road map?
Steven Curtis commented
So, the skype for business commandlet actually works to block the number from teams
Set-CsInboundBlockedNumberPattern -Description "SETYOURDESCRIPTION" -Identity <SETIDENTETY> -Pattern "^\+1112223333"
Had originally found the commandlet under teams, but the documentation is blank but the documentation under Skype for Business is still relevant and works under a Teams only organization: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/skype/set-csinboundblockednumberpattern?view=skype-ps

Receiving ridiculous amounts of calls from one number. Needs this ability
