Can we have a Teams GPO ADMX file so we can turn on/off user client items like "Auto-Start Application", "Open Application in Background"?
Another day, another request for this.
Any central custom control of the Teams desktop application would highly be appreciated. Preferrably even from Teams Admin center (it can control the 'app store' but not the app?)
i found this script and very good.
An enterprise application that expects bulk configuration as a per user powershell script? Come on! Get some GPOs setup and a move away from JSON.
Third party applications have better GPO support.
New prompt today inviting users at login to "use another account" when logging into Teams. Need to suppress this (our staff should only upload files to our company's tenant not other tenants. Need to manage how Teams starts before it gets Teams Client policies after login.
"Teams got its Settings inside a File named "desktop-config.json" in %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams
There are a couple of Guides to get you a Powershell-Script to work, which you can hang into a gpo starting on userlogin."
Yeah, and if powershell is not active, cause security issues...??

This issue should have been a level 1 priority at least since Covid-19 started. We have daily password leaks because Teams chat automatically takes window activation away from our VPN solution while users are logging in. Not being able to control this is a critical problem!
We need full customization via GPO and NOT JSON

I really want it for my company!
Not having these admin templates in Intunes is limiting staff usage of their Teams. For example, we'd like to set everyone's activities to "on" for all alerts. Staff belong to numerous Teams and are forgetting that they have notifications out there.
Teams is now the go to application by everyone in my community, it would be useful to control some of the desktop application functions.
Completely agree with Aaron and Steve, We need a GPO to set many settings accross our school specifically New Experience as its too difficult to ask all users to do this plus we use mandatory volatile profiles so the setting resets after logoff anyway. No roaming profiles here......
Does anyone know if anything has changed in regards to the admx files?
Massively struggling without them.
Steve Jaworski commented
Exactly what Aaron said below. We have hundreds of users and some have "new Experience" on and some have it off. So we have to manually explain to people how to set it or remote in to fix it. There NEEDS to be a way to manage this firm wide.
This... plus, auto-start, default Chat app for Office. There needs to be a centralized management for this.
Aaron Rummery commented
New experience feature now available some have it enabled automatically some don't would be nice to include teams admx files with office 365 to set the option
Completely agree to this. Having this limited options für managing an Application by Microsoft is just irritating.
We need to be able to disable hardware acceleration and do this through a policy rather than powershell to edit the json. Powershell is blocked running under the standard user context in our environment which causes more headache getting powershell to run and make the required changes. Why in 2020 would anyone manage an application in this way?
Would also appreciate Teams GPO-Management. Especially in terminalserver environments options like "Animations" should be set by the administrator. Thank you, Aknur, for the workaround, scripting the JSON changes via PS.
