Deploy Microsoft Teams over the network using GPO
Deploy Teams over the network to GPO setting that will launch the application only in the background mode.
This needs to happen NOW!!! I can't believe this has been released without these controls. Who wants an huge Teams box opening up everytime you login? No-one! The ability to open in the background needs to be configurable by GPO.
Plus one for this need of a GPO for Teams. In a non-persistent VDI environment, having a user change that configuration in the application settings is not an option.
I agree with Eric Bostrom, all my users are asking to stop the auto start. If I do so , they will not have the notification and they will not use it. Please make a GPO capable to configure the start up option, and in our case with Background start!
When can we expect to see an admx template to control the client application?
Eric Bostrom commented
Need GPO for auto-start in background. Users hate how in-your-face Teams is as it launches. They've asked me to disable auto-start, which means they won't be using it.
Need to be able to deploy teams via GPO properly full stop, not just deploy an "installer" that is temperamental.
I concur, this NEEDS to be sorted out ASAP. We rolled it out to all PCs in the school and are now plagued with splash screens and VB errors. It's affecting lessons and the children's learning - unacceptable!
How about some ADMX templates like we have with Onedrive?
David Johnson commented
Please give us the option to stop Teams from starting up automatically after installation. This is incredibly annoying.
this would be great especially for shared meeting room devices that users can login as guest login for external perties

Agreed with other comments, start app silenty, in systray.
User adoption will be greater if it's not another thing to close on login that's in their way.
Eric Bostrom commented
Switches to start the app silently, minimized or start to tray (background) would be greatly appreciated.
Teams offers a lot and I prefer it to sfb but my users don’t like waiting for it, particularly when it starts full-screen maximized with that blank purple page.
Wim Minkjan commented
Yes we would like to see this. Preferably as a GPO setting.

I would really like to be able to deploy this to our user base and have a switch or a registry key or something to set it to run on start up but set behavior to run in background. Only because it's annoying on startup and for all our users to have to go in and set it manually is a lot of work and i'm positive we will get many calls because of it.
We need to be able to deploy the Microsoft Teams over the network and allow the application to run only in the background if we want to. We don’t want to go to each computer change the setting manually.
