Teams admin center is adding support for customization of the widgets in the dashboard. Administrators can now personalize the dashboard widgets as per their preference. They can reorder the widgets and pin them at a position they would like to see. For widgets that are not being used frequently, Teams admin center now gives the flexibility to hide them from the dashboard.
The widgets are now optimized for smaller screens too.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 85703.
IT admins can drag and drop widgets to customize their Home page in Teams admin center.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling this out starting with a small set of tenants in early August (previously late July) and complete the rollout by end of August 2022 (GA).
How this will affect your organization
Administrators will now see ‘re-order icon’ and ‘more icon’ on every widget in the dashboard. By clicking and holding the re-order icon, the placement of the widget can be changed by dragging it to the position preferred by the administrator. Using the ‘Remove’ option under the dropdown menu of more icon, administrators can hide the widget from the dashboard.
To add widgets to the dashboard, administrators can click on the ‘Edit’ icon on the top-right corner of the page and click on the thumbnails of the widget.
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify your Teams administrators about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
