    I think that I read in a massage (New Feature: Assign policies to a batch of users or a group / February 25th) that this feature is scheduled to 4. march 2020. I have just checked and could not choose a group to assign the policy to.
    I guess Teams team has been very busy (as we all are…) adjusting to the new situation with COVID 19 and all. Perfectly understandable. Patience is a necessity these days. : -) I was excited to read that Teams team thinks this suggestion is important and I hope to see this been possible soon.

    Assign policies to groups (365 or/and security):
    I was looking recently into assigning messaging polices to users in our tenant. We have 2 kind of users: students and employees. It looks like I can only assign the policies to individual users - from the admin portal. Looking into PoweShell I found out that I could sort my users using their attributes (powerShell rocks!) or as suggested by Microsoft by getting the group and then get its users and assign the policy to them.
    The problem is, that all those methods regards ONLY existing users. We have about 7000 users in our tenant. The users are changing constantly. Some users leave, other gets created. That is a typical feature for schools. In such environment, automation is essential. We synchronize users into AD from other systems. We do not do manual user creation in neither AD nor AAD.
    Without the ability to assign to groups, we lose the ability to assign the policy to new users. The only possible way to control app features like for example chat is to use the global policy. That means the same policy for everybody. That does not make much sense. Especially when administrating IT in big organizations. I would like to know, is Microsoft looking into enabling group assignment to policies in Teams? Are there other ways for solving this issue?

    I have tried using the AMX based policy only to find out that (as mentioned in the previous comments) it only applies I cases where the policy has been applied BEFORE Teams is installed. That makes this policy irrelevant in our setup where we install office 365 from MDT. Teams installs automatically if you install o365 using the deployment tool. Installing Teams from Intune is problematic as well because there is no way to configure what is getting applied first… Besides, most of our clients already have Teams installed on their PC’s. We need a policy that IS getting applied to ALL devices whatever Teams is installed our not. It will be better if we get an option to allow Teams to run with Windows start - but it in the background.
    ADMX backed CSP’s are great. I think that this is a way to go if you are using Intune. For Teams as well as for Office365 products. The thing is that this is great if the policy has effect. Otherwise it is not usable…
