    We just resolved after being directed to this page, by adding http/https entries to Mimecast's Managed URLs list, for teams.microsoft.com and *.teams.microsoft.com

    Interested to see how Teams will be installed as a result of this upcoming change:

    I was really frustrated to see that the previous feedback was closed. Even more frustrated to find there is no way to query the closure/resolution.

    Reading the feedback, it was clear what was being asked for. Admins do not want installations into user profiles. I would love to hear Microsoft's reasoning behind this!!

    Not only does it consume unnecessary space in a users' profile, consume additional bandwidth for every download/update, it's just not manageable from an admin perspective.

    If someone uninstalls the app after it has been deployed via MSI, and then they want to start using it, we have to **** about with cleanup scripts on a per user basis? Why?

    What's wrong with a traditional program files installation?
    We are only just testing Teams, and before I'd even looked at deployment options, you know how I found out about it's install process? I was shadowing a user on a server that did not have it installed, and I saw they were running Teams! I had a look at the file location and it turned out it was in their profile. I was disgusted to see that this had been installed and used without our knowledge. Google saw the error of their ways with this and gave enterprises a proper MSI installer, why can Microsoft not do the same?

    The team has delivered improvements to the New Meeting experience in Calendar such as optional attendees, richer custom recurrence UX, as well as enhanced meeting RSVPs.

    Pretty much one of the very first things I went looking to add to our IT team, and could not find!

    We currently have a "Call out calendar" created in Excel, and have that added as a tab. It works, but would prefer a real calendar solution.

    Planner has a calendar view, which we thought about using, but have each "Call out" entry as a task is feasible.
