Teams Policy Settings Take Forever To Reflect On The Teams Client
When making a change in the Teams admin portal to a user policy (messaging, calling, meeting) for specific users the change can take hours to take affect on the client. This is so frustration as an admin when you want to create new policies and apply them for testing purposes. Nothing like having to wait upwards of hours to see how a policy changes the user experience on the Teams client.
What is the hold up?
Looks like the issue is still present in June 2020. Is there a plan to fix this? Or a work around?
We setup a custom meeting policy to block recording from org-wide and allow only some users. After adding a user to the custom policy , for some users recording radio button start showing after two hours for some after 4 hours for some takes full 24 hours or worse you've to manually update client ...Toggle switch options should not be designed to take hours to just do a YES/NO option on a client. Please please improve the change effects propagation time to clients !

takes to long time to aply a policy in Teams. Please send a powershell to force update or a simple web option.
Glad to see I'm not the only one. I wish I had found this blog before I had been beating my head against the wall all day. I'll just see if it works itself out over the weekend.
Very frustrating indeed. I have now been waiting for more than 36 hours and policies are still not fully implemented. And we all think that moving to the cloud speeds up things. Our internal IT-Organization would implement this in minutes.
Takes 24h to only enable anonymous in Teams....... Its really bad
I'm trying to set up a Virtual camera club as ours has closed for maybe 4-6 months. I'm learning as I go. I found the Teams admin site today as I needed to allow guest entry, It is really frustrating that changes such as these can't be reflected in minutes.
yeah it would be nice to be able to change policy more quickly. I just changed a global policy for apps and made a mistake... now I have to wait up to 24 hours or some unknown interval before I can get a simple app working again? Crazy. Make the update populate quicker.
I have the same issue. it sometimes takes hours, sometimes takes a day. The version I have is 1.3.00.362.
I'm experiencing a different issue rather than Calling Policies only taking the Global (Org-wide Default) policy into effect.
I've just recently experiernce this same problem. The MS Teams client (v1.2.00.17057) has virtually no predictable pattern as to when a policy will be updated. I've seen it take minutes, hours and now days for a simple policy adjustment to propogate down to the client. There needs to be a setting that controls this from the server side, and a means fromthe client to force a policy update. I have proven that a logout does not work nor does exiting the app completely and restarting. A policy change I made three days ago just appeared now.
