The Microsoft Teams admin center provides an ability to admins to view the list of users and groups that are assigned to a policy. This capability will help admins to better manage policies and get an understanding of which policies are in use and are assigned to whom all.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 97253.
Admins can view the list of assigned users and groups for a policy.
When this will happen
This feature shall be available in Oct 2022 for all Microsoft Teams licensees.
Standard Release: We will begin rolling out mid-October 2022 and expect to complete by late October 2022.
How this will affect your organization
Now admins can see two columns – 1) Assigned to users, 2) Assigned to groups on various policy pages such as Meeting policies, Messaging policies, etc. As the name suggests, “Assigned to users” is for the users that are assigned via direct assignment and “Assigned to groups” is for user groups that are assigned via group policy assignment, to a particular policy. Both columns will have a clickable link to view, which will take you to the Users > Manage users page to view directly assigned users, and corresponding Group policy assignment page to view groups that are assigned to a policy via group assignment.
What you need to do to prepare
Review how the policy assignment for users and groups works. You can then go to any policy such as Meeting policies and review various custom policies that are applied to users via direct assignment and to groups via group policy assignment. After clicking on the view link, you can review the list of users and group and then verify the correctness if those are correctly assigned.
If a policy has no assignments, then clicking on view link will fetch zero results. Such custom policies can be deleted as per the need of the organization.
