  4. Features global administrator to disable the team

    Features global administrator to disable the team

    We are a global administrator managing 70,000 users.
    If there are many users, many teams are abandoned and inactive.

    If there are many inactive teams in a tenant, there is a risk of information leakage.
    However, deleting a team risks the loss of information or business impact.

    One thing the global admin wants to do before deleting a team is to disable it and watch it.

  6. Join teams together

    Most of our teams are low level operations and often interdepartmental. Sometimes how ever there is a higher level requirement and cross departmental. This currently means setting up a new team and having someone manage all the members. This is way to much work when you consider that the members are already there in the lower level groups, therefore I think there is a strong need for a tool that can group teams together.

  7. Rename option for all associated parts of a Team.

    Need for an Admin to be able to rename Team name, OneNote, Planner, O365 Group, OneDrive, E-Mail.. etc . Basically one option for all associated parts of an O365 / Team.
    I opened a case with Microsoft Support and the answer was this is not an option and not recommended.

  8. Sensitivity labels management for Teams within the administration portal

    It would be really helpful to be able to manage sensitivity labels for Teams within the Teams administration portal compared to only being able to manage them in the Teams client currently. Our organisation manages the creation of Teams for the business and does not have a direct user driven creation process, this allows the organisation to enforce policy standards and compliance.

  10. Permitir o apagamento de mensagens.

    Apagar mensagens permite controlar o fluxo de mensagem lidas, deixando apenas as importantes. Num grupo o fluxo de mensagens é intenso. Fica difícil saber onde paramos a leitura.
