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"?
Office 365 Pro Plus GPOs, found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49030
These include the GPO for Microsoft Teams. Once the templates are in place,
User Config > Policies > Admin Templates > Microsoft Teams > "Prevent MS Teams from starting automatically after installation"
I just put this in my environment and it has remedied the issue.
***The date on the templates say Sept 25, 2019***
can the Teams Channel notification be turn on by default? Or is there any gpo for the notification setting?
In 8 more months, Microsoft will shrug and say they can't really be sure WHY news reports are that users are moving away from Teams, and to Slack or Zoom in droves... between this, and requiring 3rd party invitees to configure MFA just to join a meeting, they really missed the mark with how people are USING the tools. A lot like the Apple theory of "Here's the product, you WILL use it our way, or not at all."

Any update on this, it's a requirement for software these days.

I'd LOVE to be able to configure MS Teams VIA GPO, that contain settings such as controlling auto-start, credentials, etc. This would make delivering a CONSISTENT user experience much easier on a large scale deployment.
To save time for anyone looking, the new ADMX *do not* contain any new settings for controlling auto-start or open in background. The only Teams-related item in there is whether or not it gets installed with the rest of the suite. We're still waiting, Microsoft... this thing is NOT business-ready, and removing SFB before it IS ready will be a mistake!
To use this policy setting, download at least version 4882.1000 of the Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML), which were released on July 9, 2019.
Any news on this?, its massivly irritating and Im getting constant calls on it!
The current behaviour of this client means that we won't be deploying it anytime soon. It's ridiculous that there are no granular management options for configuring it.
Came looking for this, completely crazy that there is no AMDX template for teams, how about minimize on close instead of closing the application, if it is a presence application replacing skype for business I don't want users to close the application by accident. AND THERE IS NO SETTING administratively to do this. WOW microsoft, WOW
This. The Teams rollout and management tools are useless. How can we roll this out to the business when it doesn't install silently, opens full screen after install and every subsequent update and doesn't set itself as the default chat app for Office?
