    Even something as small as not applying a Group naming policy *unless* the user changes the name in Teams would be a massive help.

    Scenario:

    We have a Group naming policy that appends (UserCreated) to any Group/Team created by end-users. When we administratively create a Group/Team, it is to keep that tag off the name and keep it "official".

    If I as an admin create a Group called "HR Managers", the owner of the Group can go into Teams, change the picture, and Teams has retroactively applied our Group naming policy even though the user did *not* change the name.. So now the Group/Team is named "HR Managers (UserCreated)".

    This behavior is bonkers-- Outlook does not do this with Groups, so Teams should not do it either. I can clean this scenario up occasionally and programmatically with Powershell, but I shouldn't have to.

    Add another complaint to the pile. It's embarrassing that it behaves like this and not in the same manner as the SharePoint web app.

    Teams adoption is skyrocketing with recent WFH accommodations, and this issue is quickly becoming our #1 pain point for new users.

    Hi everyone! If you do not want to use the OneNote Staff Notebook or any of the other default tabs across the various team types, we suggest creating an ‘Anyone’ team instead.

    The ‘Anyone’ team will not include any add-ons by default and gives you the flexibility to use Teams however you would like. We understand that there are so many other ways you can use Teams that does not fit the Class/PLC/Staff team template. So ‘Anyone’ will be your best option!

    More information on the different team types in Teams for Education can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/choose-a-team-type-to-collaborate-in-microsoft-teams-0a971053-d640-4555-9fd7-f785c2b99e67

    Feel free to reply back here if you have additional feedback.

    Thank you!
    Justin

    Assignments tab, class notebook, staff notebook... Forever visible but can't remove.

    It's crazy that we cannot turn these off. Does Microsoft not realize that a metric ton of schools run their own LMS and that these features just cause confusion? This isn't something we can just easily communicate to thousands of employees across dozens of sub-organizations.

    This is literally the only reason we are not deploying Teams. It's great otherwise, in our pilot group at least.

    Microsoft, if you want Teams adoption, you have to give us more control.
