MC422163: Deploying Teams at Scale (preview)

Your organization may have a lot of teams that you use to drive communication and collaboration among your frontline workforce, who are spread across different stores, locations, and roles. Currently, there isn’t an easy solution to deploy, set up, and manage these teams and users at scale.

MC422163: Deploying Teams at Scale (preview)

We’re building a solution to enable admins to deploy and manage teams at scale.

Here’s an overview of the capabilities available today for creating and managing large numbers of teams at a time and what we’re planning for the near future.

  1. Create up to 500 teams using pre-built templates or your own custom templates via Teams PowerShell cmdlet.
  2. Add up to 25 users to teams as owners or members.
  3. Manage teams at scale by adding or removing users from existing teams.
  4. Stay notified through email, including completion, status, and errors (if any). You can choose to notify up to five people about the status of each batch of teams you deploy. Team owners and members are automatically notified when they’re added to a team.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this preview in late August and expect to complete by mid-September.

How this will affect your organization

It will give admins the ability to deploy teams at scale for their organization.

What you need to do to prepare

Download Teams PowerShell module 4.3.1(preview) or above and review the documentation to get started: Deploy teams at scale for frontline workers in Microsoft Teams
