Work on meeting reminder for Teams meetings is in progress.
Currently we do not give owner rights to end users and we are working with a team admin instead. Operational overhead for the IT.
Therefore we cannot use a lot of other good functions in Team.
For certain teams, it should be possible to disable this function.
IT Admin’s now have the ability to configure apps on the left navigation of Microsoft Teams. You can learn more about that feature here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/teams-app-setup-policies
As announced at Ignite we are currently working on enabling desktop users to add personal or favorite apps to their own left navigation.
We have exact the same problem. It does absolutely not make sense to add all users even those who don't have a Microsoft Teams license to an org-wide team. This feature is not usable for us how it was implemented by MS currently. We deleted org-wide Teams again.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.
Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.
